Lee is a well-known face on the BBC Antiques Roadshow with a career that spans three decades and several disciplines. Starting out as a porter in 1988 at Messenger May & Bavistock in Surrey, Lee then moved on to become a saleroom manager at Phillip’s. At the age of 25 he was promoted to become their youngest ever branch manager in charge of the bustling Ringwood saleroom.
Lee then became Furniture & Works of Art specialist at Sotheby’s handling world-class objects on a daily basis. In 2002 Lee relocated to the US, joining America’s oldest auction house Freeman’s of Philadelphia, heading up their European Art department. Returning home in 2007 Lee took up the same position for Scottish firm Lyon & Turnbull before transitioning to Head of Asian Art in 2010 when the Chinese art market was at the height of its global boom.
Lee moved to the West Country and in 2017 joined Duke’s auctioneers in Dorchester as Managing Director and Head of Asian Art. The move to Dore & Rees in 2021 marks a real milestone in his career, and he will work closely with the team, both new and old, to develop the brand into an internationally-known, thriving regional auction house and community hub for design.
Susan established her jewellery gallery in Harrogate in 2006 and is delighted to be expanding her business and partnering with Dore & Rees. The early part of her career was spent with Christie’s and then she joined Phillips.
Susan has built up a loyal following, offering advice to collectors, buyers and sellers of fine jewellery. She is also active in assisting clients with their jewellery valuations, repairs and redesign requirements. Susan also runs an extensive lecture program at her gallery, which focuses on jewellery history and design. Susan’s passion for jewellery and her intimate knowledge will bring a unique dimension to these joint auctions.
Susan is a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Goldsmiths, an accredited lecturer for the Arts Society, as well as a well-known expert on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.
Susan visits Frome regularly for valuations and auctions and assists clients from her base in Harrogate.
