"You did everything you said you would in respect to marketing the collection and I think the enormous interest generated was testament to that. Creative, passionate and enthusiastic - exactly what you promised us!"Jonathan Brown, Drambuie Liqueur Company


In addition to our specialist auctions, our raison d'etre are single-owner collection sales. Each one carefully crafted to accentuate the quality and uniqueness of the particular collection, generating un-missable events for collectors, and high (often record) prices for our clients.
Lyon & Turnbull operates internationally, providing valuation and auction services worldwide, and ensuring our client's works of art and antiques are seen, desired, and purchased by the world’s largest art markets in Europe, America and Asia.
We maintain galleries in London and Glasgow, and our neoclassical headquarters and saleroom in Edinburgh is, we believe, the most beautiful in the UK. We also maintain an alliance with the historic American auctioneers, Freeman's.
However, our international reach and commercial success are only part of our appeal. The real reason why our clients choose us over our competitors is the knowledge and approachability of our experts, and the efforts we make to understand and fulfil our clients’ tastes and needs.
