About Us


Established in 1991, Brisbane Auction Galleries is accepted as Brisbane’s leading auction house.

Developed from Lewis Antiques, a family collaboration of Peter Lewis (antique valuer and dealer) and Larry Miles (restoration expert and City and Guilds examiner) from 1981-1991. 

Brisbane Auction Galleries was established, utilising the knowledge of the father and son-in-law team to  maximise the client base and create a service, which was then untapped in the Brisbane Market with focus mainly in the antique and art field . 


Conducting more than 300 specialty auctions, we have assisted our clients in selling treasured items including, but not limited to antiques, art, jewellery, vintage vehicles, memorabilia and Australian historical treasures. 

In 1986 with the backing and support of Mr John Lynch and Sir David Longland, both highly regarded throughout Australia in their respective fields,  Peter  was appointed as a valuer for the Commonwealth Government Taxation Incentive Scheme for the arts.  A position which he still holds today, making Peter one of Australia’s most qualified valuers of Antiques and Fine Arts.

Training, knowledge and professionalism are key values at Brisbane Auction Galleries. Peter, who originally trained under the watchful eye of Mr Jack Healey has taken his experience in the field to train new auctioneers within the industry.

With endorsements from all of those mentioned above as well as Mr Douglas McTaggart (dec’d) Peter, has had the trusted privilege of working with Brisbane’s finest family lawyers, Barristers and Queens Councils, as well as conducting sales and valuations of private estates and Heritage Listed Properties, such as Toorak House of Hamilton.

Peter’s knowledge has also presented him with opportunities to work along side fellow experts in judicial matters.

Be assured that the team at Brisbane Auction Galleries will be able to assist in confidence, any requirements ascertaining to the valuation or sale of antiques, fine art, estates and treasured items.
