Automobilia is a highly specialised department at Reeman Dansie that encompasses a wide range of collectibles related to automobiles, including advertising posters, signs, mascots, and hood ornaments, as well as automaker-branded merchandise such as keychains, ashtrays, and model cars. These items have become increasingly popular among collectors in recent years, as they offer a unique glimpse into the history and culture of the automobile industry.
One of the key factors that determine the success of an automobilia department at auction is the rarity and condition of the items being offered. Collectors are often willing to pay a premium for items that are rare, unique, or in excellent condition, particularly if they have a clear connection to a notable automaker, racecar driver, or event. For this reason, it is important to carefully research and evaluate each item prior to the auction, and to include detailed information about the item's history, provenance, and condition in the auction catalog and marketing materials.
Another important consideration when selling automobilia at auction is the target audience. Collectors of automobilia tend to be passionate enthusiasts who are deeply knowledgeable about the subject matter, and who may have very specific interests and preferences. It is therefore important to carefully tailor the marketing and promotional efforts to appeal to this audience, highlighting the unique features and historical significance of each item, as well as any relevant connections to well-known figures or events in automotive history.
