Estate Services

Welcome to our website.

For over thirty years Michael Spooner owned Widdicombs of Westboro providing Ottawa with the finest antique and 20th century furniture and accessories.The store was closed in December 2008.

Today Widdicomb’s tradition of offering quality items continues through Michael Spooner and Son Auctioneers, which began in 1979, shortly after Widdicomb’s opening. The auction business was the natural result of Widdicombs clients looking for an easy and efficient way to sell their own furniture, art, silver and other fine household chattels.

All items sold through our auction are digitally photographed and placed on our web site giving your items maximum exposure. All of your items will be auctioned in a timely manner and a cheque will be processed with a fully comprehensive consignor report seventy-two hours after the auction.


All of our sales are at the newly renovated St Elias Hall at 750 Ridgewood Ottawa.Some of the items we sell include, Fine art, Paintings, Rugs, Silver, Bronze, Cars, Boats, Porcelain, Jewellery, Antique and Modern Furniture, plus much more. If it’s in your home or garage we have probably sold it!!
