We are a family owned and operated company that has been dealing in the procurement, restoration, and sale of valuables for over 20 years.

Origins

We started our business from the ground up. Just as many of our patrons attend "our" auctions, we stared out as buyers and eventually, sellers. This has been an important experience for us because it has given us an informed perspective on how to best meet the needs of our clients.

Soon, we learned to apply our talents and craftsmanship toward restoring the items we purchased. At first, we only restored what we bought for ourselves. Then, as we built up a reputation for our restoration work, we began to restore antiques and collectibles for others.

As the restorations became more complex, they involved more and more research to complete. Over time, that experience set us on a path to master the ability to identify items of value, and determine their worth.

Completing the Circle

Finally, to complete the circle of buying, restoring and selling, we decided to start an auction company. Because we understand the process from both sides of the transaction and valuation, we feel that we can provide our clients with the absolute best expertise and service.
