Company Profile

Over the past 35 years, Andrew Smith and Son have developed into one of the South's principal independent professional fine art auctioneers. Our origins as a professional family run firm of auctioneers dates back to 1793 with the original George Smith & Son, located in Winchester High Street.

Our auction department was re-structured in 2000 to provide central Hampshire with a permanent professional auction saleroom. Consequently we expanded our quarterly fine art picture auctions into regular antique auctions combining fine art, silver & jewellery, ceramics & glassware, clocks, furniture, rugs, collectables & ephemera.

We are well established in our permanent saleroom in Itchen Stoke, five miles east of Winchester. Our auction saleroom and offices comprise a renovated Grade II listed brick and flint barn set in rolling Hampshire countryside and provides plenty of free parking and a café, open on viewing and sale days. Our location, whilst rural, is well placed for fast road links using the main A31/A32/A34/A303/M3/M4 & M27 routes, convenient for both Southampton (20 minutes) and Bournemouth (40 minutes) airports, providing a convenient alternative to urban based auctioneers With our location, extensive advertising and worldwide internet exposure, our sales attract large attendances and realise healthy prices, with record prices achieved in some cases.

We hold six weekly Fine Art, Antiques & Decorative Furnishings auctions offering a wide range of items from early oak & country, Georgian and Victorian furniture, eighteenth and nineteenth century paintings and ceramics, silver, jewellery and glass, through to mid twentieth century collectables such as Clarice Cliff, toys, clocks, medals and militaria.
