The Auctioneer's View

Our May sale has continued a strong first half of the year for Leonard Auction. Sales across all of the categories were very solid with especially fantastic results in Jewelry, Watches and Fine Art.

We utilized five different online bidding platforms for this sale in additional to our in-house absentee and telephone bidding.  Our consignors saw results that were 16.07% higher than using just a single platform. This equals an additional $73,513 in sales!

We look forward to an exciting June schedule with two auctions planned, including a single owner collection of Asian and Ethnographic Arts.

They say April Showers bring May Flowers – and wow is that true! But here at Leonard Auction, our showers are filled with gold Rolex watches and shiny blue diamonds.

Not only is jewelry one of our favorite categories to sort through, but it is also one of our top selling segments during the auction. 

Whether you have a literal ton of costume jewelry or one or two pieces of fine, we would love to help you sell it online!
