Founded in 1793, Bonhams has more than 400 specialist sales a year in 60 different categories at salerooms in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Hong Kong.

With specialists in every major area of art, antiques, jewellery, motor cars and collectables, the depth of knowledge at Bonhams makes them a natural choice as the place to buy and sell.
