We have been selling antiques and works of art since 1869 and in our purpose built Auction Centre situated in the heart of historic Bury St Edmunds since the 1980s. We are one of the largest salerooms in the east of England, holding a diverse range of specialist and general sales throughout the year.
We have achieved a number of record-breaking and notable prices, including setting a UK provincial auction record in 1999 when we sold a pair of Sevres vases for £500,000. This record has since been broken numerous times by other provincial auctioneers as the power of the internet has allowed provincial auctioneers to compete with the major London houses. Recent prices of note include £130,000 achieved for a Chinese Qianlong Period carved zitan Ruyi sceptre, sold in December 2010 and a Chinese cloisonne champleve enamel bowl which sold for £72,000 in September 2011.
