The Pedestal was founded in 2016 and we hold specialist auctions in a number of categories. Our previews and sales take place at our Oxfordshire base - The Dairy, Stonor Park, Henley-on-Thames RG9 6HF.
Our specialists work with many collectors, dealers, decorators and curators from across the globe and are always aware of the latest market trends having extensive contacts in many fields.
Furniture and Interiors are a particular speciality and the auctions include a wide variety of furniture from 16th-21st centuries. Expertise in the dispersal of collections has led to The Pedestal offering for auction the collection of the late William H. Stokes, a leading dealer and connoisseur of early furniture and Works of Art and the collection of the late Patrick Donald which included a notable collection of Japanese arms and armour and Works of Art.
Our twice yearly auctions, Design For Living, feature pieces from the major design movements of the last 150 years along with unique, decorative items covering furniture, objects, carpets and rugs, ceramics, lighting, silver, paintings and soft furnishings.
The online Shop at The Pedestal is open every day of the year for browsing and buying. Here we offer a comprehensive range of furniture, fine art, objects, lighting, mid-century modern, mirrors and luxury accessories. The Pedestal Bespoke showcases beautiful handmade pieces by British craftspeople selected to enhance your interior – from antique to contemporary.
The Pedestal can offer suitable advice to both buyer and sellers of art and antiques and connect them to the international market.
