Charles began his career at Christies in London and established his own auction house, Hansons, in 2005. Along with sales of items from historic houses, including Kedleston Hall, Bishton Hall and Sudbury Hall, Hansons have been privileged to see a wide range of exciting objects go ‘under the hammer’, including a rare and fine Chinese Qianlong vase selling for a wonderful £650,000.
Charles launched Hansons London in 2018 building on the success of his Derbyshire auction centre. Charles opened the doors to his salesroom in the beautiful setting of the Normansfield Theatre in Teddington in January 2018. Driven by a passion for history, Charles’s unwavering enthusiasm and passion has contributed to the ongoing success of his business.
