Wright Marshall

Wright Marshall Fine Art was an auction house with salerooms in Knutsford and Beeston Castle, Cheshire. The firm was founded through a merger in 2014 between auctioneers Frank Marshall of Knutsford and Wright Manley of Beeston.

The parent company was placed into administration in June 2019 when its rural auction mart ceased trading and the fine art auction business closed after no buyer could be found.
