Our Suffolk auctions regularly offer works of art by leading artists, ranging from Cyril Power and Sybil Andrews, to George Hammond Steel, Brian Shields 'Braaq' and LS Lowry. 


We also specialise in auctioning original works by the celebrated cartoonist Carl Ronald "Giles" who adopted Suffolk as his home. As a Suffolk auction house, we're ideally located to achieve the highest prices for his highly collectable works.


Our diverse knowledge and range of expertise also means that our decorative art sales include all manner of fascinating antique objects and eclectic curiosities. For example, we have enjoyed particular success auctioning Australasian and South Sea tribal art.
