Discover unique and quirky antiques at great prices at Maxwells auction

Are you looking for something a little different for your home, or perhaps as a gift for a loved one? If so, the perfect opportunity is just around the corner.

Stockport-based auction house Maxwells is hosting its next monthly collective antiques auction on Tuesday, April 12 and Wednesday, April 13, 2022.

Taking place at Maxwells’ Levens Road salesroom in Hazel Grove, the auction is a fun way to find unique items not commonly found on the high street – whether it’s to furnish your home or pleasantly surprise a friend.

With over 1,000 lots, there’s plenty on offer at the upcoming auction.

From decorative antiques for your home, to an array of artwork by northern artists including a signed print by LS Lowry, there will be something to suit and interest all.

If you’re a collectable buff, browse and bid on a range of toys, Warhammer goods, and model railways – such as a Hornby scale model of Stephenson’s Rocket.

For statement pieces to furnish your home, there’ll be a variety of furniture up for grabs, such as a Scandinavian dining suite, along with decorative dinnerware, glassware, and oriental and Asian ceramics.

Not to mention, the incredible selection of jewelery and silver available, including a gold Chanel bracelet and stunning pieces by George Jensen – for anyone looking to buy a gift for a loved one, or even a treat for yourself.

A fully illustrated product catalog will be available to view on Maxwells’ website a few days before the action takes place on April 12 and 13. Why not have a browse – something just may catch your eye!

How does the auction work?

Viewing of the auction’s lots will be at the Levens Room salesroom just before the auction starts each day, from 10am to 12pm on April 12, and 9am to 10am on April 13.

There is limited open viewing, so if you wish to look at any particular section closely and are a regular buyer, contact Maxwells directly by phone to arrange an appointment.

Or, if you’re completely new to the auction scene and are not sure what’s involved, don’t worry as the team will be pleased to help and offer guidance.

Maxwells has also already started putting together the catalog for May’s auction, which will feature model railways, diecast cars, wine and spirits. If you have any of these that you no longer want, get in touch via phone or email.

As well as in-person viewing and bidding, Maxwells continues to sell all items online, to allow greater safety and convenience. Through this, bidders can hop in and out of the live auction and set reminders for when certain lots are due to come up.

If you would like to bid on any item(s) but cannot attend the auction in person, you can bid live online* at and

The collection of any items purchased online continues to be by appointment only, under the overhead portico outside the saleroom.

Auctions support a greener future

Buying at auction is recycling at its best. Solid wood furniture, for example, is so much more sustainable than buying a new throw-away flat pack.

Take inspiration from photos of upcycled and modernized furniture online – a quick sand down and a coat of chalk paint can be all it takes!
