We produce detailed catalogues for all auctions and sales are all listed fully illustrated on both our website and other specialist auction bidding websites. Our regular email keeps both trade and private buyers fully updated. Auctions are widely advertised within the press.

Auctions are held live in real time on the internet with auction bidding platforms such as and easylive, enabling buyers to watch and bid at the sales without being present in the saleroom.

Specialist valuers are available in the Saleroom, Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays from 10am to 4pm for free pre-auction appraisals and advice. We also hold regular Specialist 'Fine Arts & Antiques' Valuation Days in the Saleroom by appointment.
