The Auctioneers at Pfeffer’s Auctions have been involved in the specialised jewellery and antique auction industry for more than forty years. We provide a hub of excitement for admirers and enthusiasts of jewellery, antiques, and collectables.
We sell a wide variety of jewellery in each auction, including engagement and dress rings, watches, gold and silver, pre loved and antique treasures, liquidation stock and custom made bespoke pieces. Every item is available for inspection before the auction, so you can satisfy yourself that the item you buy is just what you want. It’s also fun to come and browse.
A Little Of Our Story
Pfeffer’s Is A Long-Standing Family Owned And Operated Business.
Shane Pfeffer is the founder and principal auctioneer of Pfeffer’s Auctions. Shane grew up in Biloela and started as a cadet auctioneer with Dalgety’s Auctions in the 1960’s. He moved to Brisbane in the early 1970’s and travelled extensively to the UK and Europe, developing an interest and love of antiques & jewellery that has endured to this day.
Why Pfeffer’s Auctions?
Pfeffer’s have conducted auctions throughout Australia, including as far north as Weipa and south to Canberra. We have seen some big changes in the Auction industry with the introduction and integration of the internet. In terms of inquiry and sales, Pfeffer’s have remained approachable regardless of where you are, in the country or abroad. We encourage you to reach out to us because we believe in strong relationships with our customers. We are proud of our excellent reputation and strive very hard to ensure that all goods offered through our auctions are authentic and match the quality and descriptions stated in our catalogues.
In the early 1980’s, Shane established Fiveways Auctioneers at Woolloongabba, where he met his partner Libby Mooney. In November 1989, Shane & Libby opened their retail business in the Brisbane CBD. In our 30th year in the city, and after hundreds of auctions selling everything from houses and cars to farm equipment, Pfeffer’s now specializes in jewellery, conducting a monthly jewellery auction in Brisbane, with other special auctions throughout the year.
Pfeffer’s is a long-standing family-owned and operated business. These days, Shane’s son, Thomas Pfeffer, helps to operate and maintain new aspects of the business. Having studied gemology and taking an interest in jewellery design and manufacturing, he is always available to assist with any jewellery related appraisals or questions.
Holding forty years of experience and a passion for assessing and selling quality jewellery, our Pfeffer’s Auctions team have established themselves as one of the best in the industry.
We understand not everyone can attend our auctions in person so we offer telephone and absentee bidding — so you don’t have to miss out on the action.
‘Very impressed by the expert knowledge and excellent customer service.’
Love going to these auctions. I always view the pieces before the auction begins and try on the pieces I’m interested in. Pfeffers are so helpful and trustworthy.
Absolutely stoked with all my purchases and the customer service from Pfeffer Auctions. Looking forward to the next auction.
