New face in the saleroom

Thanks to a rapid growth in the number of lots being consigned for sales, we are delighted to have taken on a new valuer and cataloguer.

Camilla Rawlinson joins us from Tennants where she was a specialist administrator for three departmental consultants – books, stamps and coins. Prior to that she was a saleroom assistant and administrator at the Leyburn-based auction house and also worked as an auction administrator for Morphets in Harrogate. 

Camilla has always had a life-long passion for ‘old things’ but it was not until part way through her career that she decided to take the plunge and pursue antiques as a profession. Up until that point, she had spent six years as a boarding housemistress at Queen Mary’s School, Topcliffe, following a degree in Geography & Physical Geography from Oxford Brookes University. 

Her current interests are wide ranging but she has particular enthusiasms for silver, furniture and taxidermy. She is keen to build a solid foundation of knowledge across the industry and at Elstob & Elstob will be involved in all aspects of cataloguing and valuations whilst working towards additional professional qualifications. 

Born and raised in Ripon, Camilla is delighted to be based at an auction house in her home town and is looking forward to help grow the company. 

“I am really excited to be joining Elstob & Elstob, which is fast making a name for itself as one of the leading auction houses in the North of England. 

As a relatively new business, it is also very innovative and progressive, especially in the way that it uses state-of-the-art technology to maximise its presence within the global marketplace. As such, it consistently achieves amazing sale results and attracts a large volume of high quality and varied lots. I look forward to being part of this continued expansion and development,” she said. 

The next Fine Art and Antiques Sale will be held on Saturday 31 October. Please call us on 01765 699200 to discuss consignments or email:
