By providing appraisal services like Free Appraisal Day, we help the general public understand the value of their possessions. We also conduct in home appraisals, or “house calls”, where we provide a verbal assessment of a single item or an entire house. Our team will also review your items digitally via email, and provide appraisals for estate or insurance purposes. Year round, we travel throughout New England and beyond to conduct appraisals and attend fairs that assist nonprofit organizations with fundraising.
Our consignment services are designed to guide families, individuals, and institutions through the process of selling their heirlooms and prized possessions. Our thoughtful, discreet approach has resulted in an expanding base of families and institutions who entrust their treasures to us. At Thomaston Place Auction Galleries we focus on creating the best possible experience for each consignor. This is achieved by providing restoration support, thorough research, broad marketing reach, and no up-front costs to the consignor.
Our efforts to discover, research, and present fine art and antiques to the buying public have helped us earn the respect of dealers, collectors, and museums worldwide. We provide extensive information and support to our customers because we believe that an informed customer bids with confidence! We offer easy auction participation due to multiple bidding formats: live bidding, phone or absentee, and online bidding. In our auction catalogs and on our website you will find detailed descriptions and photographs of each available item. And at live auctions we offer descriptive details from the auction podium about items for sale. We round out the buying experience by facilitating packing and shipping for long distance buyers.
