Aloysius Fortescue and Smythe is the latest offering of Vincent Page and Lesley White who are well known for breaking the mould of traditional antiques centres and transforming Antiques on High into a brand name with five stores scattered all over the U.K.
Aloysius Fortescue and Smythe is an all-new antiques auction saleroom which is set to take a fresh approach to traditional auction houses firstly by offering a very straightforward 10% plus £1 (one pound) listing fee for the seller and a 10% purchase fee (plus V.A.T.) for the buyer. There are no storage fees for the first month, and we will handle shipping on a global scale for purchasers. Combine this with a fresh, clean saleroom complete with an onsite café, and the whole saleroom experience just got a lot more enjoyable with two days of viewing prior to our auction.
Aloysius Fortescue and Smythe are aiming to simplify the auction process, as over the past few years dealers and specialist collectors have watched the waters being continually muddied by this charge and that charge only to find that the original hammer price pays little or no resemblance to the invoice presented to them.
