Duke’s is recognised as one of the leading auction houses in the United Kingdom, with an enviable reputation for outstanding customer service and achieving record prices.
We conduct specialist auctions across all categories, so whether you wish to sell a diamond necklace, a Picasso, a Chinese jade or a classic car, our dedicated team of specialists are on hand to help. Our regular Avenue Auctions enable us to sell lower value collectibles, meaning that, unlike many of our competitors, we have the capacity to deal with complete house contents. This comprehensive and inclusive service is particularly helpful for solicitors and those dealing with Estates.
In addition to our in-house team of specialists, we have access to an impressive array of external consultants. We are fortunate that many of these specialists are recognised as leading experts in their respective fields.
Duke’s have a modern approach to the auction business, but we have not forgotten the concept of good old-fashioned service.
Please contact us to arrange a confidential and free valuation on a single item or a whole collection, either at home or online at your convenience.
Our reputation is built around our strong brand image, presentation skills and providing an imaginative and personal service, leading to regular features in national and international press.Read More
