The “Auction Scene” in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and further afield is about to change and change significantly. So say the Directors of Sheffield Auction Gallery and A E Dowse and Son, two of the oldest established and most respected Antique & Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers in the area, who are about to join their professional forces and become one.

Talking about their merger, Liz Dashper, Director of Sheffield Auction Gallery said that the public of Sheffield, Yorkshire and Derbyshire will now be able to enjoy a purpose-built, state of the art, all encompassing world of Antique, Fine Art and Specialist auctions and valuations, all under one roof, with over 270 years of combined experience behind it.
