As the south coast’s longest established auction house we have been offering regular fine art and antique auctions for over 50 years.
For large single-owner collections, we are able to offer bespoke specialist auctions with accompanying tailored promotion.
We believe that fine art and antiques should be marketed and sold in a truly global marketplace and, more importantly, that the best possible price is realised for our clients. We work on a commission basis so it is in our interest to achieve the highest price possible. Whether specialist or general auctions all our sales have a fully illustrated online catalogue across two online platforms as well as advertisments through more traditional formats such as the Antiques Trade Gazette, collectors magazines and local newspapers.
Visit us at our conveniently-located saleroom, situated in the heart of Southsea’s main shopping centre where our friendly and experienced staff will be able to assist you with all enquiries.
