Our roots in the Cotswold and Severn Valley can be traced back to the middle of the last century, In recent times we have specialised in the sale of antique and quality furniture and effects until now where we hold perhaps the largest regular monthly sales in the ‘District – always over 1,400 lots, always attracting strong local, national and increasingly international interest with items valued from £20 to over £10,000.

Our regular monthly sales include:
Antique and later quality English and Continental furniture

The first few years of the new Millennium has proved a memorable one for the auctioneers and staff at Wotton Auction Rooms. Buyers can now check the auction calendar and peruse monthly sale catalogues by visiting our website, and with recent enquiries coming from as far away as Texas the potential for reaching specialist collectors has become virtually unlimited.
The monthly sales have continued to fill The Tabernacle’s every corner with 1700 lot sales becoming standard rather than exceptional. At the Christmas sale such was the volume of lots included on the first day that the auctioneers were forced to transfer the picture and book section to the second day of the sale.
