We hold four dedicated Modern Interiors & Collectibles auctions each year and offer a free valuation service for these auctions. 

20th Century Art and Design Overview


Our 20th Century Art & Design auctions include designer furniture, studio pottery, ceramics & glass, sculpture and of course paintings and prints from household names such as Banksy, Blek le Rat, Mary Fedden, David Hockney, Andy Warhol and many other big names.

The market for 20th Century furniture is particularly buoyant and there is always a strong interest from buyer's in Scandinavian Design. Our auctions are marketed internationally and recent highlights featured in these auctions include an Eero Saarinen tulip table and 4 tulip chairs sold for £1,850, a Robert 'Mouseman' Thomson bur oak stool sold for £1,900, a Pulcini glass bird sold for £3,100 and a Banksy sold for £22,000.
