Martin & Pole have been successfully conducting regular antique auctions in Wokingham for over 170 years, and our team today has a combined experience of over 100 years in the Fine Art and Antiques market.

Our dedicated antiques saleroom was formerly the British School, opened in 1841, and is located within walking distance of Wokingham town centre, with easy access to the railway station and shops.

Our monthly sales typically comprise 400/500 lots with sections devoted to antique and later furniture, pictures, ceramics, silver, collectables, jewellery and objet d'art.

We also undertake valuations for probate (Inheritance tax) and insurance purposes. Click here for further details on valuations.
