I will do my best to publish a new post every Monday.
Bonham’s, the UK’s third-largest auction house after Sotheby’s and Christie’s, has decided to expand its reach within the United States with the purchase of the venerable Massachusetts-based auction house, Skinner Inc. I shouldn’t have been surprised, but I was. I’ve been buying at Skinner’s for decades, and remember Mr. Skinner. I shouldn’t have been surprised as Bonham’s bought Butterfield’s Auction in California in 2002. Now I’m curious about some other auction houses, like Doyle New York, for example. If they’re acquired, it will no longer be a surprise.Click on the following link for Bonham’s announcement. P.S. Bonham’s is trying to become a powerhouse. On March 22nd, Bonham’s purchased another auction house, this time Denmark’s leading auction house, Bruun Rasmussen. Click here for the announcement.
No shows until October 20, 2022, when we’ll exhibit at the Baltimore Art, Antique & Jewelry Show. Two weeks later we’ll exhibit at the Antiques + Modernism Show in Winnetka, IL, starting on November 4, 2022.
