Welcome to Bulstrodes Auction Rooms

Bulstrodes was established in 1919 and has been constantly serving the historic town of Christchurch and the Bournemouth and New Forest areas ever since. The firm is now run by auctioneer Kate Howe and trades as Kate Howe Ltd trading as Bulstrodes Auctions.

A friendly and family run business with professionally qualified staff and a full diary of over 50 auction sales a year, Bulstrodes offer a comprehensive auction and valuation service.

Bulstrodes has developed good contacts locally: we are the Agents for the Official Receiver in Bankruptcy and regularly receive instructions from County Courts, Liquidators, Banks, Solicitors and other financial institutions.

Auction Sales

Bulstrodes hold large Weekly Household Sales, monthly Quality Antiques & Collectables Sales and Specialist Sales. These sales offer an excellent opportunity to sell antique furniture, quality paintings, ceramics, silver and jewellery in a specialist sale with additional promotional advertising to attract the most interest and ensure high prices.
