Buyers

JS Fine Art is based just outside Banbury in Oxfordshire, on the A4260 towards Oxford. Our large auction rooms have plenty of free on-site parking, and are within easy reach of the M40 and A34.

Our auction catalogues are both printed and also illustrated on our website and www.the-saleroom.com We can also email you catalogues or notify you that the catalogue has gone online.

Viewing times: the auctions are on view on the day before the auction from 9am-7pm and on the morning of the auction from 8.30am until 10am when the auction starts.

We email condition reports and images, at your request, although we regret that we are unable to do this on sale day.

We accept commission bids via email or phone and will bid up to that amount on your behalf. We start all commission bids as low as the reserve and/or other bids will allow. We also undertake telephone bids at our discretion.  All bids should be with us by 5pm on the day before the auction as we regret that we are unable to accept any bids on sale day.
