Antique Auctions & Appraisals – from Sacramento to the World

From the Antiques Roadshow on PBS to antique appraisals in Sacramento, San Francisco and beyond, Witherell’s is one of the nation’s most highly regarded family-owned firms. Brad Witherell founded the business in the 1960s with Old West antique auctions in Bay Area communities and was naturally followed by his son, Brian. Together, the father-son team has built an international reputation that benefits clients searching for antique appraisals in Sacramento, San Francisco, Redding, the Central Valley and coastal communities.

California Antique Auctions are Valued Worldwide

Through the use of technology, Witherell's antique appraisers in Sacramento are linked to the world of experts thousands of miles away to provide estimates of potential worth for customers considering online antique auctions that reach global buyers. For example, Brian Witherell is an accomplished Sacramento antique appraiser of art, furniture, china and Old West antiques. In the ‘business’ Brian is considered a foremost Generalist Antique Appraiser. A Sacramento client may anticipate Brian using his iPad, cell phone and vast network of contacts to establish the approximate value of an item using an expert in New York who specializes in a specific niche. As an antiques appraiser in Sacramento, Brian is able to provide almost instant information, on-the-spot estimates and even authentication of items intended for online antique estate auctions.

Sacramento Region is Rich in Antique Collectibles

Sacramento clients are frequently surprised to learn that a family treasure has significant value as an item for an online antique auction from Sacramento that reaches buyers worldwide. Brian Witherell has many exciting stories about items found in closets, barns, basements and under beds that brought customers healthy returns in an online estate auction from Sacramento to worldwide buyers. Make sure to sign up for his BLOG highlighting fabulous finds of Sacramento antiques and beyond. These fun stories happen when Brian and his dad travel to homes in Northern California and San Francisco to appraise antiques for auction and uncover surprising treasures.

Building Trust as Premier Antique Appraisers

Sacramento is home to Witherell’s family business. Brian and his dad, Brad, keep overhead low, leverage the power of technology and enjoy their reputation as trustworthy and experienced antique appraisers for Bay Area and Sacramento clients seeking quality online antique estate auctions. Sacramento’s Witherell team also works with private clients wanting confidential sales and appraisal of antiques. Sacramento clients might learn of the Witherell family’s expertise from the popular PBS program, The Antiques Roadshow where they’ve been guest antique appraisers, or through referrals from satisfied clients from their years as antique appraisers in Sacramento, San Francisco and Northern California. According to Brian, trust, integrity and experience are the qualities embodied in Witherell’s business model.

“My dad and I spend our lives immersed in the world of antique appraisals and estate auctions. Sacramento clients are our friends and neighbors and we travel to the Bay Area, up north and to the Central Valley as well to help people get the most for their treasured collectibles and antiques. We understand both the monetary and emotional value of items entrusted to us in an antique estate auction. The Sacramento region is rich in history and we love being part of it.”
