Welcome to Plymouth Auction Rooms

Plymouth Auction Rooms Limited is a family run business established by Paul and Sharon Keen in 1992. Together, they have a wealth of experience enabling them to provide a professional, friendly and efficient auctioneering and valuation service.

Paul has more than 25 years’ experience in the auction business and has appeared on BBC television, local and national radio. He is also regularly featured in the Westcountry media – with regular newspaper columns and coverage in Plymouth-based dailies The Herald and Western Morning News. The auction rooms hold regular sales featuring antique furniture, silver, jewellery, ceramics, watches, collector’s items, clocks and paintings.

Paul’s enthusiasm for promotion and marketing has yielded many exceptional results including a record price for a pair of Chinese Export pottery parrots at £170,000; the auction of English gold pattern coins, selling worldwide for £330,000; and the sale of a cricket ball from the famous 1933 ‘bodyline’ series for £10,000.

Plymouth Auction Rooms is widely respected and recognised as the leading saleroom for works by iconic painter Robert Lenkiewicz with many paintings regularly selling from £10,000 to £20,000.

Regular media coverage, coupled with a high profile internet presence and an on-line bidding facility at auctions, means that potential buyers from around the world - as well as across the UK – register to bid for lots alongside customers attending the highly popular sales.  

Plymouth Auction Rooms has evolved into one of the Westcountry’s leading auctioneers and valuers, where Paul and his team of valuers will be delighted to provide free sales advice on single items, collections or entire house contents.

Fine jewellery, rare clocks, precious hard stones and Chinese works of art attracted worldwide attention with a record amount of online bidders recorded at the sale.

Paul Keen 'we we're overwhelmed with enquiries for the sale and were expecting some good results but were still amazed at some of the sales and the intensity of the bidding on the sale day resulting in the one of the highest grossing sales for five years’.
