If you have a particular Antique or Collectable Object which is proving difficult to find then let us see if we can help. Using our extensive lists of Dealers, Private Owners and other Auctioneers we can help source Objects both Nationally and Internationally.
We offer a wide variety of valuation services to include:
Advertising Your Antiques
We can provide advertising for the sale of your Antiques through both local, national and international media.
We also provide our sale catalogue to Antiques Trade Gazette so they can be viewed on the Internet. You can view it by using the Link provided at the top of the page. We also advertise our Auction sales extensively in local and Trade publications as well as mailing our client list (only a few Objects can be shown on these advertisements).
Expertise and Premises
Our directors have over 50 years experience in the Antiques trade locally and they would be pleased to assist and advise you in the purchase or sale of Antiques & Fine Art. Once entered for sale your Objects will be displayed at our permanent premises in Cranbrook prior to their sale. Our Salerooms act as a showcase for your Objects.
We offer local collection at a charge of £20.
For collections being made further afield there may be an additional charge. This will be determined by the quantity of goods and their location.
Any collections can be arranged with our office. (See contact details below)
Deliveries are made on the Tuesday following each auction.
Alternative days can be arranged with our office.
All goods in our posession on the van are fully insured, and we are proud to offer a safe and reliable service.
If you require delivery please contact our office at your earliest convenience to arrange a time.
Bentley's was originally formed in 1995 by Raj Bisram and Wilfred Wheaton as Cranbrook Auction Rooms; holding monthly antiques and collectibles auctions. Mark Foster joined the company in 1996 and on Wilfred's retirement a couple of years later he became joint partner and co-Director with Raj. The company became Bentley's Fine Art and Antique Auctioneers Ltd in 2000.
Apart from the very first auction held in 1995 all subsequent antique and fine art sales have been held from Bentley's showrooms and offices at The Old Granary, Cranbrook. A fine 18th Century, grade II listed, white weather boarded, former granary that has found commercial use in the modern world.
Directors Mark Foster and Raj Bisram have 50 years combined experience in the antique and auction world. They are always happy to appraise your item(s) for sale at auction.
They are supported by experienced consultants covering all aspects of the antique world.
Our friendly office staff are happy to guide our customers, whether buying or selling, through the auction process.
