Over 170 years ago McTear's opened its doors in central Glasgow. From then on buyers from all around the globe have furnished their homes with the millions of objects that have passed through the McTears's doors. Famous and celebrity collectors including a young William Burrell, have come to McTear's. McTears has developed into one of the largest independent auction houses in the UK and are holders of the Britain's Best Auction House award, voted by the general public and readers of Home & Antiques magazine. Whether you’re interested in buying, selling or simply enjoying the buzz of the auction, McTear's has a sale for you. With dedicated auctions and specialist departments in Asian Works of Art, Jewellery, Whisky and Pictures to name but a few, McTears offer a style of service seen in only a handful of auction houses outside of London. As one of the forerunners of Live Bidding for The-Saleroom.com, McTear's Live! Auctions brings a genuinely global audience to auction galleries. McTear's Head Office and Auction Galleries are situated just south of the Clyde Tunnel adjacent to the M8 motorway. The Galleries are open every weekday from 8.30am until 5pm and on Saturday mornings. The facilities at McTear’s Galleries boast a private car park and licensed café.
