They are based in the heart of the West End of London at 32 St. George Street, at the location of Shapero Rare Books.

The collaboration will formally commence on June 7th 2018 with a first public auction of specialised British Empire philately held by Mayfair Philatelic Auctions in central London.

We recognise that for many potential clients in the UK, the choice of consigning your collections to Switzerland, or indeed buying from an auction house in Switzerland, may raise questions and uncertainty. With the Brexit vote and its unknown implications for cross-border trade with the European Union and European Economic Area, these uncertainties will no doubt increase.

We want to establish a clear sign to existing and potential UK-based clients, that via its collaboration with Mayfair Philatelic Auctions, David Feldman is committed to the UK market and wishes to strengthen its position as the leading philatelic auction house in Europe.
