The world's leading auctioneers of Sculpture and Design for the House and Garden

Your Hospitality Experience

Summers Place Auctions are the world’s leading auctioneers of Garden Statuary and Natural History. Their first sale was held nearly 30 years ago as part of Sotheby’s Country House saleroom at Summers Place in Sussex, since which time the sales have flourished, establishing a global reputation.

A wealth and diversity of material offered over the years has included everything from a whole Italianate garden of fountains, terraces, a lakeside jetty and statuary weighing more than 500 tons shipped over from Massachusetts, USA to a 15 foot high bronze bust of Lenin, liberated from a town square in Latvia following the fall of the iron curtain.

We offer a unique, tailor-made experience for Evolution Sale Auction at Summers Place Auctions on 22-23 November 2016. Our hospitality team is available 24/7 to provide an exceptional level of service for this event, as well as catering for the finest options in Sussex entertainment, accommodation, close protection and transportation needs.

Our Offering



One of their buyers recently observed on the incredible diversity of the material they offer, commenting that they sell “From Rome to chrome”. Recent highlights include an Roman Imperial 1st Century AD marble altar, surmounted by an urn carved by Giovanni Battista Piranesi, discovered in pieces in a north London garden and sold for £163,000 and a bronze head by Dame Elisabeth Frink from the Desert Quartet series given and patinated by the sculptor to the vendor which sold for a world record £180,000.

They now hold a minimum of four sales per year which include the best examples of Garden sculpture and decoration as well as Natural History.
