GLASGOW acquired a new auction house last month when Mulberry Bank Auctions officially opened with a drinks reception on the evening of May 20.
Heading up the new team are associates Kirsty Harris, John White
and John Hayes, who together have over 60 years' auction house
experience in Britain and Europe. All most recently worked at
fellow Glaswegian saleroom McTear's.
Mulberry Bank Auctions are based in the West End of the city,
close to Argyle Street. The modern glass-fronted building is
nestled within the sweeping early Victorian sandstone townhouses of
St Vincent Crescent. It takes its name from a large mansion that
stood on the site until demolition in the 1930s.
The new auction house will hold Saturday sales of fine antiques
and collectables every six weeks, the first scheduled for July 2.
They also plan quarterly sales of rare and collectable whisky using
Andrew Bell (again formerly of McTears) as a consultant.
Scotland's largest city is increasingly well served by fine art
auctioneers with Mulberry Bank joining McTear's (Meiklewood Gate),
Great Western Auctions in the Whiteinch district and the
consignment offices of Bonhams (St Vincent Street) and Lyon and
Turnbull (Bath Street).
