Auctionbarn can assist if you inherit an estate, chose to downsize or sell an art collection. Established in 1998 in Burbank California, Auctionbarn has evolved into a trusted and popular company to assist you, the client, in deciding how to sell your collection.
When it comes to estate sales and auctions, some people find the process complicated. Our staff will work with each client to make sure you understand the process. Auctions are held bi-monthly making it easy for you to sell with regularity – often an estate or collection can be combined in a themed auction such as Asian Art, Gallery Art or period collections.
Our promise to you
A decision regarding the liquidation of an estate or a lifetime collection may seem overwhelming. Caution must be exercised to avoid a quick or uninformed decision that may lead to the disposal of your assets for values far less than their true worth.
With one call to Auctionbarn, we will help you make the best choices for realizing the greatest potential value from your collection. Our staff will evaluate your items and determine whether they have a place in the global market through one of our online or live auctions.
We handle estates of any size and also welcome individual items of value. We seek antique furniture and decorative arts, porcelains, art glass, antique oil paintings, modern & contemporary fine art, estate jewelry, fine French, Continental & American antique furniture, Asian art, antique & modern sculpture, mid-century furnishings, clocks, books and antique silver. We will also evaluate other categories of significant or historical importance and rare, unusual items.
An initial evaluation can take place either at your home, at our offices, or you can submit items for consideration by email. Our staff will help you determine the estimated auction value of your items. In addition, we will walk you through our consignment agreement and auction process so you are comfortable in your decision.
After that, we handle the details. We photograph, research, and catalogue your items, complete final estimated values and market them to our extensive global market of buyers. Within thirty days of the auction date you will receive the proceeds of your sale..
