Bentley’s Antique & Fine Art Auctioneers was originally founded by Raj Bisram and Wilfred Wheaton in 1995 as Cranbrook Auction Rooms. On Wilf’s retirement Raj was joined by his co-Director Mark Foster in 1996 and the company became Bentley’s Antique & Fine Art Auctioneers Ltd in 2000. Nick Hall joined Bentley’s in 2017 as Associate Director and Principal Auctioneer and Valuer, and is responsible for the day to day management of Bentley’s, with Mark and Raj working in consultancy and auctioneering roles.
Our sales are held at Bentley’s showrooms and offices at The Old Granary, Cranbrook, Kent. A fine 18th century, grade II listed, white weatherboard, former granary that has found sympathetic commercial use in the 21st century.
Since 1995 the company has gone from strength to strength and now attracts a wide range of high quality Antiques, Fine Art, 20th Century Design, Collectors Items, Furnishing pieces, Chattels and all manner of rare, interesting and unusual items for its monthly auctions.
