  • Every week we hold two auctions and offer over one thousand lots. On Tuesday mornings at 10:00 am we sell 300 - 400 lots of linen, china, glass and collectables. On Wednesdays at 10:00 am we sell 600 - 700 lots of antique and later furniture, china, glass, pictures and collectables.

    As well as this , we also hold regular Fine Art Sales, Specialist Rug and Carpet Sales and Bankruptcy Auctions. Our commercial department holds sales both within the Algernon Road auction complex as well as "on-site" auctions anywhere in the north.

    Valuation Advice:
    You are invited to bring your antiques and collectables to our salesrooms within office hours (weekdays between 8:30 am and 5:00 pm) for free, independent and professional advice. To do this, there is no need to make an appointment, there will be no obligation to sell after a valuation has been given and, most importantly, if we feel that any item is beyond our field of expertise we will admit this and instruct a consultant.

    Our valuers will be delighted to visit your home or other premises if items are too numerous or too cumbersome to bring to our office.

    For further information on auctions, valuations or anything else at all please contact us.


    Founded in 1902 by Thomas Nielson Miller, the auction house traded for its first ninety three years from its Gallowgate salerooms in the centre of Newcastle Upon Tyne.

    In 1995, due to expansion, the firm moved the east of the city and now operates from Algernon Road in Byker. The building we now occupy was formerly The Ringtons Tea Factory, a landmark made famous, at least locally, by its appearance on the bottom of the Maling Ware china tea caddies commissioned by the tea merchants. The seven-storey auction complex has been totally refurbished and now boasts six salerooms, purpose-built loading bays, long and short-termed storage facilities and a large customer car park.

    Malcom J. Scott joined the company in 1958 and took over from his father Cecil as senior partner in 1982. A general valuer with some 42 years experience, he also has a specific interest in furniture, silver and books. He is a director of The Universal Building Society. He is a former High Sheriff of Tyne and Wear and is a Deputy Lieutenant of the county.

    Brian T. Brownlee joined the auction rooms in 1967 and became a partner in 1984. As well as running the company's haulage and storage services, he also oversees all commercial and bankruptcy auctions.A valuer with over three decades of experience, his areas of special interest include china, glass and objets d'art.

    Alistair J. Scott B.A.(Hons) joined Thomas N. Miller Auctioneers as a partner in 1994 after spending six years in charge of the print department at Bonhams Auctioneers of Knightsbridge. He represents the family's third generation in the business and specialises in prints and paintings. He is also responsible for the company's accounting.
