Exceptional Record Sales

Each sale is comprised of antiques, fine art, modern & contemporary art and furniture, and other material from a combination of estates, private collectors, institutions, and trade consignors. Every auction is internationally and nationally advertised in a variety of publications and media outlets, providing consignors with the best possible exposure for their property.

Neal Auction Company has an accomplished history of presenting and selling important works of art. Our reputation as the market leader for the professional presentation and sale of art and antiques ensures that the highest prices are realized for objects sold under our auspices.


Additionally, the trust and relationships which we have built over the years with museums, cultural institutions, scholars, and private collectors mean that the most likely buyers for such material are assured by our expertise, scholarship, and professional handling and presentation of objects.
