21/10/2013 : Further Expansion
Adam Partridge Auctioneers & Valuers are currently celebrating their 5-year anniversary with a string of specialist sales added to their existing auction calendar.
These include Sporting & Military, Asian Art, Silver, Jewellery & Watches and Judaica, which will see the sale of an important 18th century Hebrew manuscript discovered in remarkable circumstances and set to sell for more than £100,000.
In addition to this, the auction house has acquired the established auction house PATRICK CHEYNE, based in Altrincham. This is due to the retirement of Sir Patrick Cheyne Bt., who will remain as a consultant. The office will continue to be run by Della Hartley, who has worked for Sir Patrick for some 26 years.
Managing Director Adam Partridge said "I have been interested in Sir Patrick's business for many years and am delighted to announce this acquisition. The deal almost happened some five years ago when I left my post running Frank Marshalls of Knutsford to start my own business. Sir Patrick has been a reluctant retiree but we have remained in contact and on good terms over the years. I am a great admirer of his and hope that he remains with us as consultant for many years to come. I am also delighted that the office will continue to be run by Della Hartley, who has worked for Sir Patrick for many years."
Cheyne's premises at 38 Hale Road, Altrincham will be used as a valuation office and consignment centre, extending the firm's catchment area into North Cheshire & Manchester, which is already an area in which they have many existing clients. Items consigned with be sold at either of the firm's existing salerooms in Macclesfield & Liverpool (opened in 2011), depending on which is most suited.
To coincide with this acquisition, Adam Partridge Auctioneers will also opening a saleroom at Houldsworth Mill in Reddish, Stockport just five miles or so from Manchester City centre. Keep an eye on the news section of the website for more info.
