Auction Services

For over 200 years we, and our predecessors, have been hosting regular fine art and antique auctions from our saleroom in Oxfordshire, in addition to providing antiques valuations for buyers and sellers throughout the UK.

We operate a full sales calendar at our Oxfordshire saleroom, with monthly fine art and antiques auctions on the second Wednesday of each month. Auction catalogues are available to view online and are updated regularly with detailed photo galleries, descriptions and guide prices. The saleroom is open weekdays, 9.00am to 4.00pm, to receive items for sale, and for valuations and auctions advice. Prior to sale day, viewings are on the previous Saturday morning 9.30am – 12.30pm, Monday and Tuesday 10.00am – 6.00pm and on the morning of the sale itself 9.00am – 10.30am.

Whether you are a first time buyer or seller, an experienced antiques dealer or an enthusiastic collector, our dedicated team of specialists will use their years of experience and expertise to help you to obtain the best results at auction and ensure that the process runs smoothly throughout.
