Keys Fine Art Auctioneers

Client since 2012

Founded in 1955, Keys Fine Art Auctioneers has developed into a major auction company, with a reputation which stretches far beyond its East Anglian origins.

Keys holds over 80 Fine Art, Antique, General, Commercial and Specialist sales covering the whole auction spectrum.  Still operating from the same five acre saleground in Aylsham, Keys now has a wide-ranging team of experts in many areas, offering a complete auction service which rivals many national concerns.

The firm has been in the vanguard of embracing new ideas and technology.  In particular, the advent of the internet, and live online bidding, has opened up its sales to a much wider, worldwide audience, with buyers bidding from their computers and mobile devices right across the globe.
