What to expect from a Tennants Auctioners 'Antique and Interiors' sale

So what does an Antiques Young Gun auctioneer do all day? I have many roles at Tennants, but a General Valuer is one (think along the lines of a GP of the antique world; able to asses and value a whole host of items rather than in just one specific field). As such I am responsible for putting together and sorting one in three of our fortnightly Antique and Interiors sales which act as our ‘general sale’. However, do not let this put you off or think they contain nothing for you.
