Fine Art & Antiques

At Special Auction Services (SAS) we hold a monthly Fine Art & Antique auction. Through these auctions we offer a range of items including ceramics, glass, works of art, objet d'art, and fine art.

Our Fine Art and Antiques sales usually held on the first Tuesday of every month start at 10 am and include some 500 lots. There are always items available to suit every pocket and taste.

The Fine Art and Antique department hold free valuation days every Wednesday from 10am-3.30pm in our Newbury saleroom. We recommend booking ahead to ensure a specialist is available to see you and appraise your valuables.

Experience and knowledge allows us to give you expert and comprehensive advice when selling. Prior to the auction a professional, colour printed catalogue is produced and publicised worldwide to ensure that your items reach the excellent prices they deserve.

Our consultants are available and eager to offer friendly and honest advice to any buyers with questions regarding items for sale, prior, during or post auction.

Any enquiries regarding buying or selling and for more information please contact our specialists Thomas Forrester, Ed Beer or Jessica Forrester on 01635 580595 or via our contact us page.
