WildKat PR is thrilled to be working with boutique auction house, Beares Auctions on an exciting new campaign.

fEodT9Lm

Beares Auctions is a boutique auction house specialising in the sale of fine instruments and bows, supported by internationally respected expertise. Beares Auctions complements the unrivalled traditions of  excellence and integrity for which the Queen’s Award winning J & A Beare is known throughout the world. Their auctions offer a limited number of high quality instruments and bows in varying price ranges, but will exclude the large numbers of trade and student instruments found in most other auctions. These instruments are offered at realistic market prices, traditionally associated with auctions. Both buyers and sellers will benefit from the services of the renowned J&A Beare workshop.

The auction house is initiating a really exciting new project that we are looking forward to sharing with you very soon!

Keep up to date with Beares Auctions’ news on their website, Twitter and Facebook.
