About Maynards Fine Art & Antiques

Maynards has been handling fine art, antiques and rare finds of all kinds for more than 100 years. Our mission is to engage both emerging and established collectors, making artworks of diverse background, style and price point accessible through both on-site and online venues. We are glad to answer queries about art appraisals, buying and selling at auction, and our operations at any time.

Founded in 1902, in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, Maynards is a traditional fine art and antiques auction house that has sold many of the great estates of the province. We relocated the company headquarters to Vancouver in 1956, and over the course of the next half-century established permanent offices around the globe. During the 2010 Winter Olympics, we celebrated the grand opening of our spacious and modern 8,500 square foot auction showroom on Main Street in Vancouver. With these new showrooms – the largest in Canada – we are able to offer our clients a world-class auction experience along with unparalleled access to the rapidly expanding international marketplace for fine art and antiques.

In addition to our stunning new showrooms, our new website offers a full online auction experience to buyers, sellers, and interested public around the world. By clicking on the green “Bid Now!” buttons on any of our Current Auctions, our clients can participate online in our major auctions in real time, either bidding or just observing from the comfort of their own home or office anywhere in the world.

We welcome both new and experienced clients as both buyers and sellers, and are pleased to advise them in the following areas:
