International Autograph Auctions Ltd was established in 2005 and quickly gained the reputation of being Europe’s leading specialist auctioneers of autographs and manuscripts.
We are responsible for the sale of over £1m worth of autographs each year and conduct around six auctions per annum. As well as selling many individual lots with estimates of £80-100, we are also honoured to sell collections from £10,000 to £250,000. The application of our expertise in presenting practical and realistic estimates continues to contribute towards successful auctions at which a sell through rate of in excess of 70% is regularly achieved on behalf of our vendors.
This figure considerably exceeds the industry norm and we have also become widely known for our expeditious settlement terms which, once again, are amongst the promptest and considerably better than many other auction houses.
Our global client base continues to expand as a result of our reputation, complemented by international media coverage of some of the fascinating autograph collections featured in our auctions.
Clients have complimented us on not only our professionalism but also our friendly, dynamic and enthusiastic approach in providing a total service including expertise second to none.
A sister company, IAA Europe S.L., was formed in 2012 and hold two auctions each year in Spain under the direction of Francisco Pinero. Their website can be visited here.
IAA Ltd are proud to be members of the Professional Autograph Dealers Association, The Manuscript Society and the UACC.
