ABOUT US 

Jessica Wall LLB - Company Director, Valuer & Auctioneer

Jessica Wall BA owner of Stamford Auction Rooms
 

 
With over 20 years experience, I began my career in the art and antique trade as an Apprentice Furniture & Art Restorer, which provided with a rare insight into period furniture and works of art.
 
My path in the auctioneering world started at the major auction house Bonhams in London followed by the position of Senior Valuer and Manager of Wilkinsons Auctioneers where I developed a specialist knowledge and passion for early English oak furniture and works of art from the 16th to 18th century until relocating to Lincolnshire, following a brief period working as a solicitor.
 
Since I was a little girl I have been drawn to the exciting atmosphere of auctions; from the anticipation when waiting to the lot you want to bid on, to the thrill of out-bidding the competition and winning the lot, so opening my own auction house was an easy decision to make and I feel particularly proud that I am the only female auctioneer, valuer and auction house owner combined, in Lincolnshire and beyond.
 
The Stamford Auction Rooms Ltd welcomes everyone, and we would be delighted to hear from you, whether for valuations, browsing on viewing days, or attending to bid at one of our auctions!
