Antique Furniture Auctions

Our three salerooms hold Collective Sales in which is a core section dedicated to antique furniture. This auction sees buyers from all over the world with a key eye for antiques and collectables. These include wardrobes, chest of drawers, tables, shelves, dressing tables and much more.


We have notable successes for antique furniture including a house record for a Regency sideboard attributed to George Smith selling for £135,000, a marble top table attributed to George Bullock at £11,000 and many many more, but potentially the most valuable piece we have ever sold was a bookcase by Thomas Chippendale selling for just £1,700? If we put this into context it was 1964 and most semi-detached houses in Lincolnshire cost around £500. With a world of buyers viewing our catalogues we remain one of the UK’s leading salerooms for the sale of 17thC and later oak, 18thC and later walnut together with Georgian, Victorian and later offerings of mahogany, rosewood and other decorative timbers and veneers.


We also sell Oriental furniture in our specialist Asian Art sales at Grantham from the £26,000 paid for a 17thC Chinese marriage chest to 19thC hard wood stands to exceptional Japanese Shodhana cabinets which regularly make multiple four figure sums. We offer specialist knowledge in this niche market.


Over the years we have offered many collections of furniture for sale. Highlights include in 2019  offering over 500 unreserved lots of the finest English antique furniture for the retirement sale of Messrs G & R Burns upon the closure of St George’s Antiques of Stamford in Lincolnshire. The collection includes many of the pre-eminent names in English cabinet making from Thomas Chippendale to George Oakley and from George Hepplewhite to Gillows of Lancaster.

Throughout 2022 & 2023 we offered over 3,500 of mixed antique, oriental, periodic, timeless and Victorian furniture at auction.

If you are thinking of selling our Resident Valuers have extensive knowledge in the field of antique furniture to catalogue and market your items to the best possible audience.
