What Is Selkirk Auctions & Appraisers Known for?
Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers has been a full-service fine art and auction firm since 1830, which makes it officially one of the oldest family businesses in the US auction industry. Led by professional appraisers and certified experts, the company specializes in evaluating and auctioning items across a wide variety of categories. These include objects of modern and contemporary art, antiques, jewelry, furniture, militaria, tobacciana, musical instruments, and many more. The choice is so vast that it seems that you can find an Atlantic treasure there!
The auction house is famous for its exclusive lots featuring the original masterpieces by iconic artists. Over centuries, it has been the treasury for St. Louis’ upper crust. In 2007, Selkirk Auctions sold the painting by the remarkable American painter Frederic Edwin Church for a record-breaking $2.5 million. In 2010, they auctioned the first edition of Ernest Hemingway’s “A Farewell to Arms.” As for some latest achievements, the company sold the collection of etchings by Pablo Picasso and James Whistler in 2015. Fine Art Shippers handles high-dollar art regularly, so shipping such amazing art and antiques for Selkirk Auctions will be a particular pleasure for our entire company.
