On 1st September 2013 Dominic Winter's company quietly reached its twenty-fifth birthday. Starting with one full-time employee and sole offices on the ground floor of a small terraced house in Old Town, Swindon, the company has now been in its current spacious premises in the Cotswold Water Park, just north of Swindon, for seven years.

Currently employing nine in-house specialist valuers and a team of dedicated admin staff and porters Dominic Winter is always ready to offer friendly, knowledgeable and honest advice. What began as a programme of monthly specialist book auctions has naturally evolved to twenty auctions a year, with specialities now including Fine Art and Antiques, Modern First Editions & Children's Books, Medals & Militaria, Photography, Historical Documents, Autographs & Archives, Fossils & Taxidermy, Stamps & Coins, Toys & Games, Sporting Memorabilia and Aviation & Transport Memorabilia.

While it is often the quirkier items sold that have captured the attention of the press – Napoleon's tooth, Paul McCartney's front door, the blood-stained handkerchief from the execution of King Charles I, and any number of other royalty and celebrity artefacts – the valuation team are untiringly passionate about the whole spectrum of books and other items of all values that are sent for assessment and sale to a truly global customer base. In a constantly shifting market-place the necessity to adapt and to understand and interpret the market is critical to achieve the right result. With an average selling rate of over 80% and a string of world record prices in all areas, we believe our commitment to good service by way of high cataloguing standards and guarantees, integrity, friendliness and independence is a winning formula for the next twenty-five years and more.

Valuations in person, at home, by email, phone and post are undertaken all year round and without obligation. Whether you are thinking of selling or buying one item or a whole estate, whether you are in United Kingdom or overseas, do give us a call or drop us a line and tap into over two hundred years worth of valuation knowledge and experience.
