About us

Ellis Willis and Beckett Auctioneers and Valuers was first established as a family business back in 1870. Following the Sheffield Blitz in 1940, EWB re-built the business brick by brick to successfully carry on well into the 21st Century.

In 2021 the business was re-established by a small, experienced team, including a member of the original family, bringing together expert knowledge that covers the worlds of antiques, fine art and the auction market alongside today’s digital technology.

Today we are proud to offer an experienced, friendly, professional service coupled with a fresh and contemporary approach to a global audience.
