The Auctioneer's View

Our January sale provided a strong start to 2022. Sales across all of the categories were very solid with some fantastic surprise lots in Asian Arts and Fine Arts.  The highlight of the sale was a Chinese Ming style bronze Guanyin statue that was consigned by a local picker. Three bidders; one from the Chicago area and two from China competed for the unique piece that had a final bid of $47,500. A Picasso ceramic plate, consigned by a collector in France, also performed very well with a final bid price of $21,250 against a pre-sale estimate* of $5,000 – 7,000.

We utilized five different online bidding platforms for this sale in additional to our in-house absentee and telephone bidding.  From tracking the bids on each platform, we generated sales that were 13.57% higher than using a single platform.  This increase in bids contributed an additional $58,269 in auction sales for our consignors!
