The History of Auctioneering : Street Society
Protecting the past with an eye to the future

The History of Auctioneering

Wells auctioneer Allen Mechen from McCubbing and Redfern gave a talk entitled The History of Auctioneering at the society’s April meeting.

As well as covering the history of auctions back to 500BC Alan gave an interesting account of more recent times as well as some of his tales and experiences.

Members brought a few items to the meeting for his valuation and whilst there were some interesting items one in particular caught his eye.  It was a travelling writing set containing a ruler, ink pot and pens.
