Art Auctioneers

Services: Appraisers, Antique & Art Auctioneers & Estate Liquidators

Michaan's Auctions takes pride in having our finger on the pulse of the antique auction and fine art auction marketplaces. Our antique and art auctioneers keep abreast of antique auctions from around the world to ensure that our appraisal values remain true to the current market.

Although our network of buyers and sellers is international, our primary market remains in Northern California and the San Francisco Bay Area.

In addition to performing art and antique appraisals and auctions, we are high volume estate liquidators. We provide a full spectrum of services to estate consignors, maximizing the return on the entire estate - not just the pieces that lend themselves to art and antique auctions. Michaan's Auctions manages every aspect of estate liquidation, making the process easy and efficient.

In addition to our monthly antique auctions,we offer monthly estate auctions to aid in the liquidation of the total estate. Estate auctions are distinctly different from our high-end antique auctions, providing a means to liquidate a massive volume of property of varying value.

Weekly appraisal events are also held that offer free appraisals of art and antiques to the public.

Our monthly antique auctions offer a wide variety of property, reflecting the full range of the art and antique auction experience. Property for auction includes but is not limited to fine art, decorative arts, estate jewelry, timepieces, stamps, coins, antique furniture, Asian antiques, ceramics and metalware.
