    "Criterion Auctions is my favourite place in London to buy interesting antiques and collectables"
    Martin Miller (Millers Antiques Guide)

    "If you've never been to an auction you should treat yourself. They are great fun, often tense and very exciting when the bids exceed expectations, especially when you're the seller! Criterion Riverside Auction house is the sister of Criterion Auctioneers (Islington) so whenever you sell an item at either you're reaching their wide audience of buyers from both North and West London. No other auction house can offer this sort of coverage."
