English Furniture & Works of Art

The Fine English Furniture and Works of Art auctions at Bonhams feature examples of cabinet-work by leading furniture makers from the late 17th century to the late 19th century. Submit your item online for a free auction estimate.

Our sales have included pieces by such distinguished makers as Chippendale, Ince and Mayhew, William and John Linnell, Seddons, Gillows and George Bullock as well as many other eminent names. Rare colonial pieces are also occasionally included in the sales such as Anglo-Indian and Chinese export furniture, while early oak and country furniture is sold through our London sale-rooms. In addition to furniture, our auctions also encompass lighting, mirrors, fire furniture, related smaller objects and sculpture. Fine English furniture sales are held three times a year in our New Bond Street Galleries, including 'The Oak Furniture' sale (oak@bonhams.com). In all cases our catalogues are available to view on-line in advance of the printed catalogue.

If you are considering buying or selling furniture, a member of the specialist team will be pleased to offer their expert advice by telephone, e-mail or in person.
