For those that don’t know us. Charles Phillips was formed in 1987,  We are consignment Auctioneers who specialise in the expeditious clearance of quality merchandise at below market price. Typical categories are, Original Art, Famous Artist Limited Editions, Diamond Jewellery, Hand made furniture, Sculptures, Bronzes, Carvings, Decorative Porcelain, Wines and Whisky, Persian Carpets, Memorabilia and Unique one of kind Artistic items. For the past 30 plus years we have procured goods from customers, manufactures and Artisans from around the globe. Our main service was to containerise and ship these goods to the UK and sell by live Auction at our venues in the Uk and Ireland. We also built a major showroom facility within our head office premises to facilitate customers mainly in interior design fields or for customers transforming building interiors.

As they say “All good things come to an end” Since all our lives dramatically changed over the last 3 years so did our life styles and the way we purchase goods. With the surge in online buying it’s no longer economically viable for our sector to hold large Venue Auctions,  so an online Auction service is a natural step for our future. Our premises are right in the middle of an active development zone so it was an easy choice for us to sell and re locate to an office environment in order to perform our online Auctions. I must say it’s not the same as a vibrant interactive live Auction which always has a lot of buzz and excitement but on the plus side it’s easy to operate, you upload photographs, create an online catalogue then arrange delivery of sold items through the owner of the goods at the Auction close. No need for the large storage premises or operating your own transport fleet.

We now want to give the final push to clear our premises and will be appearing in your area soon for the final time ( Scotland only ) Please look out for your invitation. This last Auction will be the one you shouldn’t miss as many previous price tags have been removed and goods will sell to the highest bidders !!!

If you haven’t been to any of our events before why not come a long and see one for yourself, we are always keen to add customers to our mailing list for future online events. Whatever location event you attend you will see a great cross section of the above mentioned categories. If you are unable to stay for the whole event and are still able to attend the viewing period it’s still possible to leave a bid on any item with the Auctioneer.

About Us

You want to know more about us?! That's great!

My name is Paul Young, I am the Managing Director of Charles Phillips and Sons. I would like to welcome you to our new Rolling Auction website. For potential bidders who don’t know the company, here is a brief history. The business was founded almost 35 years ago by Phil Course (RAF Pilot) and Charlie Williams (Auctioneer)

Phil passed away a few years ago and is sadly missed by everyone, Charlie has reduced his activities in recent times but still performs PR duties for the company and has been busy spearheading new Art market opportunities

Since I joined the company as a trainee Auctioneer nearly 30 years ago the company performed mainly art Auctions but we have steadily grown this into other exciting sectors that are connected to the Arts and luxury goods markets. Over the last three decades we have built special relationships around the globe with quality Artisans across various sectors including art publishers, ornamental porcelain makers, hand made furniture companies, rug weavers, specialist jewellers and to this day we are still offered exclusive merchandise for Auction from new generations of these special relationships which were cemented all these years ago

During our extensive travels procuring, preparing and shipping of these specialist containers we started to build our own collection of exclusive merchandise and fantastic ‘one of a kind items’ these items were mainly for the decoration of our showrooms and to fulfil a demand for our interior design customers.

With the dramatic changes to business in the last year and to move forward with our new dynamic we now intend to clear our showrooms and container facility just south of Edinburgh and offer most of our inventory for clearance by online Auction, we will evolve our operation and concentrate on the development of our Art and Diamond markets.
