Supporting Good Causes 

Clevedon Salerooms is proud to support charities and local community groups.  We help raise much valued funds by offering advice on donations and selling items commission-free for registered charities.

Successes have included a Chinese bamboo brush pot donated to the St Peter’s Hospice charity shop in Clevedon, dating from between 1662 and 1722 by one of the most celebrated artists of the day, Gu Jue. Managing Director, Marc Burridge arranged the sale of the pot with the hammer falling at an amazing £360,000.

Other notable items sold on behalf of charities include a rare limited edition linocut of Acrobats in Red by Cyril Edward Power (1872-1951).  This rare and sought after linocut achieved £3500 in one of our Quarterly Specialist Auctions.

A generous donation of a Rolex Gentleman's Oyster Perpetual Datejust Chronometer stainless steel wristwatch, saw the charity receive £3000. A bisque head and ball jointed doll by Simon & Halbig, also achieved £3000. The charity was also delighted when two pages from an autograph book that had been donated to them, signed by Freddie Mercury, John Deacon, Brian May, and Roger Taylor of the rock group Queen, raised a much appreciated £1500.
