Chiswick Auctions

Chiswick Auctions has weekly auctions every Tuesday of the year, except immediately around Christmas. Viewings are held on Sundays and Mondays.

Chiswick specialize in antiques but do sell modern objects and designer goods. Most of the objects sold have an exceeding value of 60 Pounds.

The saleroom is featured almost daily on television, with programmes such as Cash in the Attic, Dickinson’s Real Deal, Flog It!, and Bargain Hunt.  The frequent television coverage has already helped to make the auctioneers surprisingly well known public figures and considerably increased the public’s knowledge of the saleroom.
