John Nicholson

(Managing Director and Senior Valuer)

From the age of 15, John was gripped by the world of auctions, working in a local firm. By the time he started John Nicholson’s Auction House in 1980, he had already been managing director of another auction firm. In his time he has valued anything and everything, from plant and machinary to cast-iron boats and even the contents of a museum which included a live alligator. Recently, he has overseen a raft of successful sales in the booming area of Chinese and Asian art. If John doesn’t know the answer, he knows someone who does.
