William Rouse is a co-owner of Chiswick Auctions and a recognised antiques specialist throughout the industry. William’s antiques knowledge is wide ranging, but his particular interest is in ceramics, both Oriental and European.  Being a member of the English Ceramic Circle and historically a friend of the Percival David Foundation of oriental ceramics (now at the British Museum), with an interest in handling museum objects and keeping his professional development active.

William has worked in the antiques world for 25 years. Shortly after leaving college and working for a prop hire company, he was introduced to buying at auction houses.  An auction house in Ealing gave William a position for a number of years, where humbly starting with house clearances he ultimately became an auctioneer.

William then went to work at Christie’s South Kensington, in the valuations department, where he travelled covering the whole of Great Britain and Europe. Handling fabulous object d’art gave William a great insight into the life of the wealthy and the bijou’s they like to buy and sell. William was responsible for the ‘Montague Sainsbury Sale’ a big single owner sale which was the highlight of Christie’s sale season that year.

Finally in 2007 William joined forces with Tom Keane and bought Chiswick Auctions.
Tom left the business early 2013 and William is now partnered with Leigh Osborne, taking the business to new heights!
