About Us


Franklin Browns are a small Edinburgh based auction house with a big reputation for quality and professionalism. Our dedicated team are both enthusiastic and reliable and work hard on your behalf to ensure that whether you are buying or selling with us that you have an enjoyable experience.

We know that Edinburgh has long been a haven for antique dealers and bargain hunters alike who love nothing more than seeking out desirable antiques and interesting curios. So why not join us every third Saturday where you will find an eclectic mix of interesting and quirky items such as ceramics, glass, silver, jewellery, stamps, Militaria, medals, coins, carpets, rugs, musical and scientific instruments, works of art, paintings and prints together with Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian, Mid Century and contemporary furnishings. All Sales commence at 10.00am and incorporate live online bidding thus allowing you the opportunity to bid from wherever you need to be whilst the auction is in progress. By combining the local market with a worldwide audience we are able to offer the perfect platform for the sale of your antiques and collectables.

Additionally we offer a comprehensive auction valuation service for private and professional clients and can carry out confidential reports and inventories for inheritance tax, insurance and family division. Furthermore we are pleased to offer a full or partial house clearance service facilitating the East of Scotland and beyond. For us the majority of this work is carried out from recommendations and we pride ourselves on our ability to provide a first class service for clients whilst achieving the best possible income for those unwanted goods.

As a business we are thrilled to be involved in such an environmentally friendly and green industry as the redistribution of antiques benefits everyone and goes a long way towards maintaining the future of our planet. If you have any queries or would like to book an independent valuation then we would love to hear from you. Simply give us a call, email or drop by the saleroom where we will be pleased to help and offer further guidance.
