About Us

The Great Western Auctions Ltd. was established in 1989 in Glasgow by Anita Manning and her daughter Larissa Manning. In doing so, Anita became one of Scotland's first female auctioneers.

Our programme includes fortnightly Antiques and Collectables Auctions, Quarterly Fine Arts and Antiques Auctions and a variety of dedicated specialist auctions throughout the year.

At Great Western Auctions we hope to combine the traditional values of integrity, personal service and expertise with the latest technology. Our large private client base built up over 30 years and the worldwide exposure of our sales on multiple online bidding platforms ensures international exposure and fierce competition for our lots.

Anita and the staff have been delighted to help in fund raising for many charities including Children in Need, Marie Curie, CHAS, CLIC Sargent, Combat Stress, Poppy Scotland, Help for Heroes and many others.

Great Western Auctions and Anita has taken part in many BBC Antiques programmes including Flog It, Bargain Hunt, Antiques Road Trip and Cash in the Attic.

Over more than 30 years, Great Western Auctions has become one of the leading independent Auction houses in the UK and we look forward to a future of continuing growth and outstanding service to our clients.
