Lyon & Turnbull

Established in Edinburgh in 1826, Lyon & Turnbull are Scotland's oldest firm of auctioneers. Lyon & Turnbull are now becoming identified on an international stage, setting world record prices for British and continental paintings along with outstanding results in other areas, such as jewellery, silver, furniture, ceramics, books and decorative arts. This has been aided by our marketing alliance with Freeman's, America's oldest auction house, since 2000. Both companies strive to employ the latest marketing techniques and share our expertise to extend our reach. This is demonstrated most notably through our cooperation in selling works of art in the most advantageous venue, leading to some exceptional prices. Responding to the growth of business from Southern England, 2006 saw the opening of the London Gallery in Pall Mall, which holds regular exhibitions and events as well as advance previews of selected items from forthcoming sales. Building on this presence, January 2008 saw our inaugural London sale, when The Deloitte Art Collection was auctioned in the Royal Academy of Arts to widespread interest. Due to the increasing volume of business from the West of Scotland, 2008 also saw the Glasgow office move to a larger and more prominent gallery site on Bath Street, the city's traditional art and antiques centre.

Lyon & Turnbull are members of Association of Accredited Auctioneers - AAA combines 20 UK auction houses, with a combined annual turnover of over £200m. Each member auction house has built a reputation for quality and integrity, many over a period of hundreds of years. AAA members are committed to the highest standards of creditability and services to buyers and sellers.
