Ryan Beach MRICS, BA(Hons) FAV, FAV Dip, RJ Dip, started his career at Phillips Auctioneers in 1995 after successfully completing a Fine Arts Valuation Diploma, Retail Jewellers Diploma and a Fine Arts Valuation Degree at Southampton.

With the closure of the Phillips regional network and particularly the Cardiff saleroom Ryan took the plunge and established Anthemion Auctions in the March of 2000. We acquired our present premises in 2005, offering us an auction house twice the size of the previous venue with easier access from the M4 on the main arterial road into the centre of Cardiff.

Since opening we have held in excess of 200 auctions offering more than 100,000 individual lots. We have been fortunate to advise thousands of clients on the valuation of Antiques and Fine Arts, Sporting Memorabilia and Collectors items.

Clients come to us via a number of avenues, from local and national advertising and we pride ourselves on word of mouth recommendations, supplied by satisfied clients, solicitors and other professionals alike.

We produce catalogues for all of our auctions, with the Fine sales, Collectors sales and Sporting Memorabilia sales being extensively illustrated, these can be viewed on this and other websites. Our database of buyers and sellers come from all around the world and we pride ourselves on providing a professional service to all of our clients.


Excellent from assessment and then collection. All staff were polite, friendly and efficient.
