Lacy Scott & Knight is an independent and long-established firm of auctioneers & valuers and property professionals. Lacy Scott & Knight have been selling antiques and works of art since 1869 in their purpose-built Auction Centre situated in the heart of historic Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk since the 1980s. Lacy Scott & Knight is one of the largest salerooms in the East of England, holding a diverse range of specialist and general sales throughout the year.
Lacy Scott & Knight has achieved a number of record-breaking and notable prices, including setting a UK provincial auction record in 1999 when they sold a pair of Sevres vases for £500,000. This record has since been broken numerous times by other provincial auctioneers as the power of the internet has allowed Lacy Scott & Knight to compete with major London auction houses. Recent prices of note include £130,000 achieved for a Chinese Qianlong Period carved zitan Ruyi sceptre, sold in December 2010, and a Chinese cloisonne champleve enamel bowl, which sold for £72,000 in September 2011.
Lacy Scott & Knight prides itself on combining high levels of expertise and professionalism with a traditional friendly attitude and personal service that clients have come to expect from this established company. Lacy Scott & Knight is long-standing members of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers (SOFAA).
