Our History

A long established saleroom furnishing the needs of the North East since 1902.

In the early days

Founded in 1902 by Thomas Nielson Miller, the auction house traded for its first ninety three years from its Gallowgate salerooms in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

The present day

In 1995, due to expansion, the firm moved the east of the city and now operates from Algernon Road in Byker.

The building we now occupy was formerly The Ringtons Tea Factory, a landmark made famous, at least locally, by its appearance on the bottom of the Maling Ware china tea caddies commissioned by the tea merchants.

The seven-storey auction complex has been totally refurbished and now boasts multiple salerooms, purpose-built loading bays, long and short-termed storage facilities and a large customer car park.
