Matthew Barton has held auctions at 25 Blythe Road since 2009 when he founded his auction business.
Matthew has over thirty years’ experience, having started as a specialist in the Silver department at Sotheby’s Bond Street. Beginning with the cataloguing of a large collection of vinaigrettes, he went on to deal with some of the largest and best works by the Royal goldsmiths Rundell, Bridge & Rundell. He left London to run the antique sales of a Nairobi based auction business and then spent two years as a freelance valuation specialist in silver and works of art on the West Coast of America. Returning to Sotheby’s in 1996, he became a Deputy Director, heading their Olympia Valuations department. Subsequently, as a Director of Lyon & Turnbull South, Matthew continued to focus on the fields of silver, vertu and works of art.
Recent successes include Elkington’s 1862 Great Exhibition wine coolers, the Montefiore snuff box, and George Richardson’s miniature of Welby Sherman.
