Established in 1877, Louis Taylor Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers have offered clients personal, professional attention and a highly specialised service for many years.

Due to the size and range of antiques included in the sales it has attracted purchasers from both the UK, and international markets via an extensive mailing list, print and online exposure.

Historically, based in the heart of the Potteries it has attracted a great deal of fine pottery and porcelain made in the area; including 18th, 19th & 20th century ceramics.

As many people will now be aware Clive Hillier has retired and the Fine Art Auctioneering & Valuation Division has been temporarily taken back in house by Louis Taylor Limited.

Louis Taylor Director, Patrick Doherty, FRICS confirmed “the retirement of our former Auctioneer Clive Hillier coincided with the end of the lease on the old basement saleroom at 10 Town Road, Hanley, and we are keen to ensure that our Fine Art clientele continue to receive the expert advice and integrity of service they expect of Louis Taylor”.

Fortunately, due to the quality of the brand name and reputation we have already been approached by a number of potential parties wishing to effectively carry on from where Clive left off.  Accordingly, we will shortly be announcing the re-launch of Louis Taylor Fine Art Auctioneers & Valuers. 

In the meantime we are still fully available to take all enquiries either via the phone or email:-
