Holders of Auctions Since 1986

Have you got a piece of fine art or jewellery in your home that is taking up space but you don't want to throw out. Perhaps it has been in your family for many years but is not something that has ever appealed to you. It could be that that old necklace that you have never worn could be worth some money. To have it appraised by an experienced valuer, call Michael J Bowman today. Should you then decide that you wish to sell it, why not place it in one of our auctions?

Michael J Bowman has been holding regular auctions at Chudleigh Town Hall since 1986, including auctions for antiques, ceramics, fine art, jewellery, militaria and collectors' items. Newton Abbot and Teignbridge are the main areas we cover, but vendors regularly consign items throughout Devon.

Due to prevailing health concerns in the UK public viewings at Chudleigh have not been possible, but the March and the May auctions 2020 proceeded as purely online events with very strong levels of demand from internet bidders throughout the UK and overseas. The lack of public viewings appears to have had no effect on the overall results.

Michael originates from Northumberland and left school aged 18, to join Whitley Bay firm of auctioneers, J. C. Featonby. Four years of training and professional examination culminated to admission by the old Incorporated Society of Valuers and Auctioneers (ISVA). On moving to Devon, he established auctions in Chudleigh in May 1986 and continues to hold seven selective sales each year containing specialist categories including:

  • Pictures
  • Books
  • Ephemera
  • Glass
  • Ceramics
  • Metalware
  • Treen
  • Medals and Militaria
  • Clocks
