We have been auctioning collectables since 1997. Everything from nostalgic trinkets, to memorabilia, to regional nick knacks, vintage dolls or Victorian porcelain to antique cars to rare wristwatches and craft glass to Fine art. We have a very good grasp on the North American market, its dynamics, trends, pricing… its pulse. We have auctioned items of historical significance, documented provenance, oddities and one of a kind items, as well as entire estates or collections that were a result of a lifetime achievements of very knowledgeable individuals. Collectors trust us. In many cases, we became lifelong friends and keep in touch on a regular basis.
For various reasons, there is a time when a private collection needs to be sold. It can be part of an estate, or the interest of the collector has faded or it changed direction. Here is small example: a Carnival glass collector narrows his/her interest to Northwood (maker) Carnival Glass and exclusively vases. A switch in taste or preference results in a surplus. Such a surplus collection offered to the masses rather than one on one negotiation will see the collector realize more net funds.
