All told, our January Unreserved Auction was a huge success. Few auctions offer the depth of variety afforded by our Unreserved Auction, and it’s always a thrill to see so many varied works of art come up for sale. A big thank you goes out to all of our consigners and bidders; it’s always a pleasure and we hope to see you all at our next Unreserved Auction, April 15, 16, & 17th.
