A Message From The Auctioneer

As one of Australia’s leading fine art auction houses, in our Fifty-plus years of operation we have sold some of the world’s most beautiful and covetable antiques, fine arts, wine and vehicles. 

On any auction day you might find items ranging from opulent French Boulle inlaid cabinets to elegant Georgian chairs, from exquisite 18th century English porcelains to intricately carved Japanese netsuke, and from early American silver to contemporary Australian art.

Our saleroom is the place to purchase everything from ‘wow factor’ statement pieces to antique furniture that suits contemporary interiors and family-oriented lifestyles. Most of the items are in exceptional condition and ready to be placed in your home or office.

We believe one of the factors in our success and longevity is that we diligently work for both buyers and sellers.

Our services include:
    •    Selling on commission
    •    Cataloguing and research
    •    Condition reports on request
    •    Specialist and single vendor auctions
    •    Valuations for insurance
    •    Superannuation investment advice
    •    Corporate collections – selling or accumulating
    •    Financial institutions work
    •    Private treaty selling
You may feel that buying or selling at auction is a daunting prospect. You are more than welcome to attend our auctions without obligation, experience the unique atmosphere and perhaps gain some new knowledge on the pieces being sold. Climate controlled, plentiful seating, free coffee and detailed catalogues make for an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon.

We are happy to answer queries, offer advice and help in any way possible during the viewing sessions that precede each auction. If you’d prefer a quieter time to discuss how we can help, please feel free to make an appointment with us. Naturally, we will treat these discussions as confidential.

We regularly conduct auctions in most Australian capital cities. Our headquarters and auction complex are in Adelaide where we hold Sunday auctions every four to six weeks.

On behalf of everyone at du Plessis Auction Gallery, I invite you to our next auction and look forward to being of service.

27-Nov-2019 A Very Rare Event Indeed

du Plessis Auctions have once again written auction history, with their 3rd "White Glove" auction in a single year. In industry terms, a "White Glove Auction" is one in which 100% of an auction sells under the hammer. It is a very rare event, with Sotheby's which was founded in 1744, recording their 1st such event in September 2015. The contents of a fine College Park residence was auctioned by du Plessis Auctions resulting in a 100% clearance rate, and further cementing them as the premium property contents specialists.

Auctioneer, Marc du Plessis says "To be an auctioneer that conducts one white glove auction in their career is a really special milestone. This year has been a dream for me with my third in one year alone. What can I say... I had the best teacher possible, my father".

Marc has been in the family business for 33 years, and stepped up to the rostrum full-time in September 2016, to become du Plessis' principal auctioneer. Since wielding the gavel in this short period of time, he has broken auction World Records and now placed himself amongst a very elite group of auctioneers worldwide.
