Welcome to Nesbits
Fine Art & Antique Auctions
Portsmouth born Managing Director and Auctioneer John Cameron, known for his regular appearances on the popular BBC1 antiques shows “Bargain Hunt,” “Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is,” and “Cash In The Attic” is a qualified member of both the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the National Association of Valuers and Auctioneers (NAVA). With over 30 years experience in the world of fine art and antiques John is also a Bachelor of Arts graduate in Fine Art Valuation.
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 advertisements 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.
We are currently closed to members of the public.
