The auction house has been established since the 1950’s on the south Essex borders at Brentwood, now a fast growing affluent town, and the present company have been here since 1989 with new management of Robert and Wendy Wood taking over in 1998.We are a small family business with Robert running the sale room and Wendy is the auctioneer with staff that have been with us from the beginning, as have a lot of our customers.
We have two monthly auctions alternating antique and collectables and antique and general and with nearly all lots submitted for auction coming from private sources.
Our antique sales have a wide range of goods in recent years we have had great success with Royal Worcester with some good prices paid, one figure from the countries of the world series fetched £1250.00 + premium. Silver, Jewellery, Musical Instruments, and Toys have all produced good results in resent years.
The introduction of our web site has increased our customer base with the catalogue on the Web for every sale including colour pictures for the antique sales. We now have inquiries and sales from all over this country as well as some from as far away as America and Australia.
We now offer the facility to bid live on line through the saleroom.com
The probate side of the business has proved a good source of furniture for us as well as paintings, boxes, lighting, instruments etc.
