One to Watch: George Duckett, auctioneer, 26


"You don't need lots of money to buy works of art that are over 200 years old." This newcomer auctioneer from London has started an online auction of pictures at 25 Blythe Road in Kensington.

His first virtual auction last month included a video of him with his gavel. After university, he worked in Sotheby's Olympia as a porter and first took to the rostrum last month in a live auction of antique arms and armour. His next sale will be in July.
