General Information:
We have been buying and selling antiques of every description for over 33 years. Our personal reference library numbers over 8000 volumes. Our professional network includes experts in every specialty. We keep abreast of auction results and market trends affecting antique values all over the world. We are able to appraise antiques in nearly every category, including fine art, jewelry, American and European furniture, silver, ceramics, glass, toys, photographs, sporting memorabilia, and all kinds of decorative and vintage objects. We do extensive research on all items to make sure no item of importance is overlooked, or misidentified. Many years ago, our research led to the rare and important discovery of a library table made by the Boston firm Erving and Casson. This table was an inauguration gift to President Abraham Lincoln from his cabinet. We donated it to the White House where it is displayed. We proudly hang our letter of thanks from First Lady Betty Ford and White House Curator Clement Conger in our office.We have a long association with auction houses and auctioneers both inside and outside Connecticut. We have sold or brokered millions of dollars worth of antiques at auction throughout our 37 years in business. We will either place your item where we feel it will bring the highest return, or orchestrate a single estate auction for you, incorporating packing, moving, advertising and cleanup.

Benefits: Auctions can be an efficient and timely way to liquidate large amounts of personal inventory, which, if consigned, could take months or years to sell. Auctions often stimulate "bidding frenzies" for unusual or rare pieces, resulting in more money than dealers or collectors would normally offer.

Estates: Auctions can save beneficiaries hundreds or thousand of dollars. If an entire estate is sold at auction, the receipts from the sale can be used as an appraisal to satisfy the IRS. This streamlined process not only saves time and money, it can eliminate family disputes over value.

Marketing: We have with great success orchestrated the sale of important estates by combing online website listings, printed adversting and live internet bidding. Regional markets differ. We have also brokered many rare and important items that were determined best sold outside New England in specality auctions at long established auction houses located both in and outside of the USA.

Rates: We structure competitive commission rates which are different for each estate and are calculated by the value of the merchandise, the work and marketing costs involved.
