Wilsons Auctions' Asset Recovery Executive, Michael Streight said, "We have a gem of an auction this month with bidders having the chance to purchase a selection of precious gem-stones including diamonds and emeralds as well as gold bars and jewellery. In addition we also have a range of our more popular luxury items from high-end watches and cars to designer shoes and cherished license plates. With all items going under the hammer with no reserve, this is a great opportunity to purchase quality goods for an affordable price.
"All items will be sold to the highest bidder at the fall of the gavel, with reserve requirements on the land and property only. Each month Wilsons Auctions plays an important role in realising a large quantity of assets on behalf of our government clients which has seen us responsible in returning £100 million back into the public purse. We are proud to facilitate these auctions across the group, which are proving more and more popular each month," he added.
