Summers Place Auctions are leading auctioneers of Sculpture and Design, internationally known for their bi-annual sales of Garden Statuary in May and October. These sales have evolved to reflect current tastes and fashions and, as one observer drily remarked, feature "Everything from Rome to chrome".
The sales typically include traditional antique statuary, fountains, Coalbrookdale seats, sundials and urns as well as works by established sculptors such as Dame Elizabeth Frink, Enzo Plazotta, Mark Coreth, Helaine Blumenfeld and Danny Lane. We also enjoy promoting emerging sculptors, whose work can represent real value.
