Adam Partridge, a renowned name in the UK's antiques and fine art scene, has purchased Bainbridges, which has been holding nine sales a year for over 40 years. The acquisition of the auction houses has created a lot of buzz and we’re excited to share more on what you can expect.
Adam Partridge is one of the UK’s best-known antiques and fine art personalities, and regularly appears as an expert and auctioneer on television programmes.
Adam Partridge Auctioneers & Valuers has rapidly become the largest and most illustrious independent auction house in the North West, with nationwide coverage via sale rooms in Cheshire, Liverpool and Devon. The team of valuers, saleroom staff and administrators have an expert knowledge that covers the entirety of the world of antiques, fine art and the auction market as a whole, offering an impeccable level of service.
Bainbridges were formed over 40 years ago as a partnership between Peter Bainbridge, who had previously run West London Auctions in Ealing, and Jane, his wife, who had for 11 years been an expert cataloguer for Sothebys.
Their historic instructions include a valuation of the contents of a German Schloss, the valuation and clearance of a villa on the banks of Lake Como, and a valuation of the contents of Up Down Court in Surrey, a property that sold for over £30m.
