About Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers

Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers is one of the longest established fine art auction houses in the UK, conducting over 45 multidisciplinary sales each year, with specialists in the fields of Asian art, 20th-century design, fine jewellery and watches, modern art, and British and European furniture and works of art.

'Fine Interiors' auctions showcase the very best of antique and classic contemporary furnishings to delight, excite and educate anyone from seasoned collectors to the most novice interior designers. These sales aim to promote the idea that a cleverly chosen piece of antique furniture can transform or enhance your interior design scheme, be that an 18th Century rustic Windsor chair adding texture, authenticity and naïve charm or a beautifully upholstered Howard and Sons settee providing the perfect place to sit cosily of an evening.

Fortnightly 'Homes and Interiors' auctions provide a unique alternative to high street furniture shops, offering a range of high quality and affordable modern and antique furnishings for the home and garden. Catering for all styles and tastes, the sales include Works of Art, Ceramics, Glass, Silver, Collectables, and Furniture, with prices typically ranging from £50 to £2,000.

Specialist '20th Century Design' auctions covering Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, and Modern Design, held four times a year, are a must-see for those on the lookout for Scandinavian furniture, studio ceramics, 1960s design, and contemporary lighting and objects.

'Modern British Art' auctions, held three times a year, offer bidders the opportunity to own original works by leading artists such as Henry Moore, John Piper, Dame Elizabeth Blackadder, David Hockney, L S Lowry, and Sandra Blow. These bright and sometimes challenging works are primed to take centre stage in any interior setting.

In 2018 Sworders launched the 'Out of the Ordinary' sales, an eclectic mix of art, antiques, design, and collectables with a wow factor. Bidders on the hunt for something a little bit unusual can look no further with past auction highlights including a pair of Cathay Pacific 747 aeroplane wing tips, a complete cave bear skeleton, and an early 20th-century taxidermy bulldog's head mounted by Rowland Ward.

Sworders' award-winning eco-friendly saleroom is located 6 miles from Stansted Airport and 1 mile from Stansted Mountfitchet railway station with its link to London Liverpool Street. The site offers 250 parking spaces, loading and unloading bays, and a sale day café.

Whist doors are currently closed to the public in line with Covid-19 government guidance, the business is running a full calendar of online-only sales, operating a contact-free collection service, and offering valuations virtually, via the website and by email.
