Advertising Your Antiques

We can provide advertising for the sale of your Antiques through both local, national and international media.

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.

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.
