Flints Fine Collectables department holds auctions twice a year in addition to our Photographica and Scientific and Medical Antiques auctions. Photographs and Optical Toys form a key part of these sales, but we also feature other collecting areas. The June 2019 sale will feature important Victorian photographs including an extensive collection of early stereoviews, optical toys including stereoviewers, and exceptional collections of opera glasses, corkscrews and fountain pens. Flints retains several consultants who catalogue specialist collecting areas.
These sales are very well publicised, with advertisements in relevant publications, in social media and at antiques fairs. The catalogues produced for our fine sales are in full colour and are fully illustrated. They are sent to collectors, institutes and museums across the world.

- Photographs (please see our Photograph Department page)

- Fine Opera Glasses and other Objets de Virtu
- Clocks and Watches

We are happy to discuss the service we can offer regarding other collections
