We’ve got more than ten years in the auction industry, even more as fans, enthusiasts and specialists. Our areas of speciality are model railways, diecast toys (Dinky/Matchbox/Corgi), movie memorabilia including film posters, and advertising items including travel and music posters. We’re here to help you achieve the best possible price for your special collections. A general auction house can auction anything, but without the knowledge that a collectables, specialist auction house has, often the prices achieved are not as high as they could be. Read on to find out more about us.
Jonathan Torode is our auctioneer as well as lead valuer for all items relating to model railways (Hornby/Bachmann/Fleischmann/Wrenn/Marklin) and diecast toys and vehicles (Dinky/Matchbox/Corgi). He’s been a collector for many years of all of the above! His knowledge and love of this specialist area is evident in the saleroom and when talking to people about their collections.
Sarah Torode is the director and main administrator, but also has a passion for movie memorabilia, including film posters. Her knowledge is increasing thanks to the specialist help we get from our network of consultants in this area. We work closely with several people whose knowledge is renowned in this field to ensure that the best possible prices are achieved at auction.
We try and make selling and buying with Excalibur Auctions as easy and transparent as possible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us – we’ll be happy to talk you through the process and tell you more about us.
