Alexander Clement is a fine art valuer and auctioneer, published author and contributor to television programmes. He has dedicated his career to the study of art, design and antiques, giving him a unique background and expertise that can be relied upon, whatever your needs.
Since his teenage years, Alexander has been fascinated by art and design. Even before that he spent hours as a young boy seeking out treasures among the antique shops of Surrey with his parents. He studied the History of Art and Design at Staffordshire University where he discovered a particular love of pottery and porcelain. After graduating he remained in Stoke-on-Trent where he won the role of curator of the Royal Doulton Museum which he held for five years.
Attracted to the glamour of the fine art auction world, Alexander’s next career move took him to Phillips Auctioneers in Chester where he ran the Ceramics, Glass and Asian Art Departments. In 2001 Phillips merged with Bonhams and in 2007 Alexander became Director of the Chester saleroom, honing his business management skills as well as a broader knowledge of antique furniture, clocks, works of art, pictures, silver and collectables. After running Chester for six years he left Bonhams to work independently as a valuer and auction consultant. In 2015 he took on the role of Asian Art Specialist at Halls Fine Art auctioneers in Shrewsbury, UK, where he built a fledgeling department up to achieve house record hammer prices for the Battlefield saleroom.
Alexander is now Senior Valuer at Halls and is also available as on- or off-screen expert for your antiques-based television production, a content writer for blogs and magazines or longer form publications.
