Unique to the Australian marketplace, The Auction Salon presents over 1,000 items every week at an online auction that takes place each Thursday and is on view in Melbourne each Wednesday.

This long-running auction features Furniture, Jewellery, Luxury, Art, and Objects & Collectables every week and attracts a broad range of new and loyal vendors and buyers, from interior designers through to seasoned collectors. It is a treasure trove of items to browse, with something to suit every taste.

The Auction Salon process is rapid, from consignment through to settlement.

Our team accept consignments on Friday and Monday by appointment. Then, photography and cataloguing takes place on Tuesday, viewing online and in person at our Melbourne saleroom on Wednesday, and of course, the online auction on Thursday. Items are available for collection on Fridays. All vendors will receive their funds 7 days after the auction.

Due to the nature of this auction, we are unable to provide condition reports for any items, though our team remains on hand to assist with any enquiries you may have.

Make sure you are following us on social media @leonardjoelauctions and are subscribed to our newsletter so that you don’t miss a catalogue. We look forward to welcoming you to our next Auction Salon.

Happy browsing!
