Following a strong second-half, calendar year 2011, we at Wickliff Auctioneers are encouraged by attendance and interest in sales of quality items at auction. As has been the case throughout recent economic hardship in the United States, sales of quality items have shown steady demand and resulting good prices. However, the seller’s definition of high quality and the buyer’s definition of high quality are often two different perceptions! We continue to advise our seller clients of the most efficient and financially-beneficial options for the sale of items of fine quality.

Wickliff Auctioneers is poised to meet the desires of our buyers and sellers and, in the first quarter of 2012, will premiere our first House Sale, which will include mid-level, decorator style furnishings and mid-level antique and vintage furnishings and decorative arts, perfect for the decorator on a budget. The House Sale will be an uncatalogued auction; live internet bidding will not be available. Buyers can, however, enter absentee bids and preview the offering in our gallery. Extended preview times will be available to afford all interested buyers the opportunity to see the merchandise. Stay tuned for additional information and dates.

Our next catalogued sale is scheduled for January 21st, and will include fine art, Oriental, American and European decorative arts, and fine jewelry, plus select, additional, items of quality.
