The benefits of Buying or Selling Fine Art with us

Our vast experience and passion for antiques is second to none and is your guarantee of authenticity and satisfaction.


For the Buyer:

As former auctioneers we are used to selling on behalf of collectors and client estates, valuing for hammer, with our new website and ever evolving ways to communicate, we feel more now than ever, able to compete with the best of auction houses, purchase without the hassle of waiting, maybe even buying something you didn't really want from boredom, or missing your lot while waiting! I've seen it all.


The buyers will pay NO 20% Buyers Premium. That means a big saving should you find that special item within our galleries. And if we dont have it, our many experienced pairs of eyes and ears can help to find it.

Everything purchased has been passed by us as a sound purchase, safe packed by us, and sent from us to you. At point of purchase from countryhomesantiques.co.uk we become the buyers agents to collect item, check item, pay for item were necessary, safe pack and ship item from countryhomesantiques.co.uk (shipping only is buyers expense)


For the Seller:

Auction houses of repute now charge upwards of 20%-30% to sell on your behalf. ( plus a cataloging fee of course!) and often a small handling charge. Remove the item from you for sometimes several months, and not always with updated information. If you have more than 1 item, then they may be included in different sales. Payment takes another month at best, often longer, and assuming the item has been paid for to the auctioneers, which can take them a month to recieve in some cases. Then 20/30% commission,+ handling etc, usually adding to 40% of hammer total with all the little tip bits auctions impose, not forgetting cataloging!


Had it been offered through countryhomesantiques.co.uk open to same/similar audiences for the same fair hammer price with no buyer premium, the buyer saves 20%.


The seller saves also. We only take10% listing/collecting. We personally view the item, correctly list it and offer it without anybody touching it, feeling it or potentially damaging it. We dont need your physical item. Just sufficient images clients can depend on and purchase with confidence from. As former fine arts quarterly catalogue sale auctioneers in Scotland and USA with live audiences offering online bidding for fine arts and antiques auction listings, we know how to do this.


As Country Homes Antiques Scotland does not require the actual item, that firstly allows the vendor to hold the item until actual point of sale and payment in full is made, with just 10% commission to us. With todays ability of worldwide reach, we feel we can truly offer a better deal than any auction house to the seller and the buyer. As a former owner of three Scottish Fine Arts auction houses, and for a time, a large USA based seated audiences with accompanying online live bidding, therefore this is far less stressful and more beneficial for both vendor and buyer.
