The Auctioneer's View

Our February sale, while slightly smaller by the number of items offered, continued our strong start to 2022. Sales across all of the categories were very solid with fantastic results overall for the Charles Vickery collection.

We utilized five different online bidding platforms for this sale in additional to our in-house absentee and telephone bidding.  Using multiple platforms ensures an industry best sell-through rate for our clients.

What a sale!  Obviously one of the major focal points in our February auction was the Charles Vickery collection with the top oil selling at an incredible $7,500!! We’ve had the honor of auctioning several artist’s estate collections this past year including Charles Vickery, Ray Kobald, Lewis Henry Meakin and William Hubacek.  We love to help re-home estate treasures! If you have anything you would like us to consider, feel free to contact us!
