Ashley Jones – Auctioneer & Head of Private and Significant Collections
A proud Salopian Ashley was born, raised and educated in Ellesmere.
Upon completing school Ashley studied History of Art, Fine Art and Design at college before arriving at Trevanion Auctioneers in 2015 as part of the Apprenticeship programme. After a year Ashley quickly developed a passion for antiques and has subsequently nurtured a love of Silver, Jewellery and Asian Arts.
Ashley is a competent valuer and began auctioneering in 2016, something he describes as….’one of the most thrilling experiences of my life!’ Most of his time is spent at Trevanion & Dean (he eats, breathes and lives for antiques!) but Ashley also spends a lot of his time visiting museums, galleries and other auctions to develop his knowledge. Ashley is a member of The Society of Jewellery Historians and The Arts Society.
He is a also a keen traveller and loves to experience different cultures as well as enjoying the more leisurely pursuits of skiing and riding. Ashley is an integral part of the team at Trevanion and Dean where he is often found cataloguing porcelain, glass, works of arts, watches and silver and greeting customers with his usual bon viveur and charm.
