Welcome to Plymouth Auction Rooms

Plymouth Auction Rooms Limited is a family run business established by husband and wife team 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.

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

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 LENKIEWICZ SELF PORTRAIT PAINTING TO BE THE STAR OF THE AUGUST ART AUCTION

A stunning Self Portrait painting by Robert Lenkiewicz is expected to be the star lot at Plymouth Auction Rooms art sale in August.

Titled ‘Self Portrait at Compton Studios’ the oil painting shows a close up of the artist face with his raised hand deflecting light from a window. Its fine detail and use of light will be very appealing to collectors.

The painting was acquired by the current Devon owner over 15 years ago from the Halcyon Gallery in Birmingham, and has been well kept in a glazed beech wood frame.

Auctioneer Paul Keen ‘this is one of the finest Self Portrait that we have had the privilege to handle in the last couple of years’

Measuring 39cm x 27cm it is expected to sell for £10,000 to £15,000.

The painting is offered alongside other fine Lenkiewicz art work and selected British paintings in the popular evening art auction on 20th August at the salerooms in Cattedown.
