I just want to say thank you for the work you performed on the recent auction of my Gerard Barry paintings and diary. I’ve never sent anything to an auction house, and did not expect much. You presented the paintings extremely well, and I believe your work established a provenance that led to surprisingly high prices at auction. I’m so glad I chose Witherell’s.

What’s Your Treasure?

Witherell’s is on the road in California, and may be coming to a town near you in 2020! You can book a free appointment with Brian Witherell to show him your treasures, heirlooms, curiosities, and oddities.

It has been said in the past that Sotheby’s was a bunch of auctioneers trying to be gentlemen and that Christie’s was a bunch of gentlemen trying to be auctioneers. You sir, are both a gentleman and an auctioneer!
