The England-based auction house changed hands and locations several times during its history. In 2002, the house was even awarded the B.A.C.A Award for Best Provincial Auction Rooms. Gorringes has auctioned several notable lots and items in the past years, including a collection of Jane Austen artifacts sold to the Jane Austen House Museum in 2013.

    In 2008, Gorringes began its online presence and has provided live auctions to buyers over the internet ever since.
