About Us

Welcome to The Portcullis Auction Room at McCartneys. Based in the historic market town of Ludlow, we hold monthly auctions of Antiques & Collectables to include Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian furniture, antique silver and jewellery, porcelain and pottery, paintings and objects of art.

Our experienced Valuer Daniel Fielder is happy to answer any questions that you may have about pieces you may wish to enter in one of our auctions. We offer a free no obligation sale estimate/appraisal service and appointments can be arranged at our Auction Room or, for larger items, at your own home.

Valuations are also undertaken for the purpose of inheritance tax, insurance and family division – please contact the office for further information.

With the introduction of internet bidding, the Portcullis Auction Room has been able to gain a global reach whilst maintaining its provincial auction house identity. We pride ourselves on having the highest levels of integrity and professionalism, which sees both buyers and vendors returning their custom.

All of our Auctions are available on both Easy Live Auction & The Saleroom and we would encourage people to utilise this service. Please note that if you buy online you cannot collect on the day of the Sale.

Catalogues are available to purchase for £1.00 each during viewing or can be downloaded from our website on the week of the auction in the 'Forthcoming Sales & Catalogues' tab above. Alternatively, please email fineart@mccartneys.co.uk to be added to our Mailing List and you will receive an email 3-4 days prior to each auction with the links to the online platforms, the catalogue in a PDF version and up to date information regarding individual auctions and collections.
