Are you downsizing, re-decorating, or perhaps settling an estate? Do you own a unique collection, or just one interesting piece?  Selling your personal property can often be a daunting and intimidating process, but it needn’t be. Allow the knowledgeable staff at Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery to guide you through the process of selling personal property at auction.

Auction Valuation

Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery continuously accepts quality items for evaluation and potential consignment to our auctions.

Our staff of experienced specialists offers auction valuations in a wide variety of categories including: furniture, fine art, sculptures, porcelains, crystal, sterling silver, fine jewelry, rare collectibles, and architectural elements – all at no charge to you.

Simply send us photographs of the piece or pieces that you would like to have evaluated for auction.  Photos taken on a smart phone or with a disposable camera are absolutely acceptable. Please be sure to include clear, detailed photos of any identifying marks or damage.

Photos may be sent:

via email to auction@greatgatsbys.com

or

via the postal service to:
Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery
PO Box 660488
Atlanta, GA 30366

We also appreciate any additional information about the object’s history, artist, maker, material, and dimensions, all of which will assist us in arriving at the most accurate assessment. In the evaluation process, we will take into consideration current market trends, rarity, provenance, and overall condition of your item(s).

Once this information is received, our team of specialists will evaluate your items and inform you if they are right for our auction and, if so, what selling prices they are likely to achieve in today’s market.
