We carry a range of fine art from Australian, Aboriginal and international artists in a variety of mediums, from original oils and acrylics through to silk-screening, lithographs, decorative prints and more.

Our auctions feature works from the gamut of Australian artists, both past and present, with examples of pastels, charcoals and watercolours and works on paper available as well as oils and acrylics.

We also supply a wildly popular inventory of contemporary Australian artists like Bromley, Knight, Romeo, Gillie & Marc, Zhong Chen, Earles and Popov. And there’s nothing we enjoy more than breaking new, upcoming artists into the market including street artists like Stenning and Mason.

We proudly offer a variety of contemporary Aboriginal works from Minni Pwerle, Polly Ngale, Gabriella Possum, Betty Club Mbitjana, Gloria Petyarre, Jeannie Pitjarra, Anna Price Petyarre, Margaret Scobie and many more.

At all Charleston’s auctions you’ll also find a selection of high quality bronze sculptures and fountains from the classical, art nouveau and art deco periods through to modern day pieces in a variety of sizes.  As well as classical reproductions, the sculptures we feature were originally created by some of the best-known European and American sculptors working in the 19th and 20th centuries.

We also source a number of fine quality, hand knotted carpets, including tribal and traditional pieces from Iran, Turkey, India, Tibet, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Ranging in size from small scatter carpets through to large palatial pieces, these are works of art created in the finest quality wools, cottons and silks.

At Charleston’s we let the market dictate what works we supply, which means we only offer art we know you want.


Charleston’s was formed in 1997 by a group of like-minded individuals who shared a passion for art. We also had a common belief: though art can be defined as ‘fine’, it doesn’t necessarily mean it should be elitist nor affordable only to investment bankers and multinational corporations.

By creating Australia’s first and, by far, most successful travelling art auction house, we regularly bring quality works of art to Australia’s capital cities and we are the only auction house that travels to major regional centres. Why?

Art is for everyone.

From the very beginning we’ve acted on this tenet, making art accessible in price and in its acquisition. We strive to present our auctions in an atmosphere that’s fun, entertaining and worth returning to on the merit of that alone.

We specialise in fine art from leading Australian, Aboriginal and international artists, but that’s not the be-all and end-all of what we’re about. We also specialise in quality bronze sculptures, as well as Persian, Oriental and contemporary carpets.

The other side to our business model is Home Content Auctions. We help people obtain high quality pre-cherished household items – from the car to antique furniture – at a fraction of store prices.

Our auctions are laid back but our commitment to professionalism is renown. We are members of all the industry’s peak bodies, we guarantee the authenticity of our catalogues, we love what we do and we’ll go to exceptional lengths to ensure your experience and your purchase are completely satisfying.

Charleston’s is an official member of the Australian Auctioneers and Valuers Association and the Indigenous Art Code.
