Willis Henry Auctions, Inc. is a Massachusetts based auctioneer of fine arts and antiques that has been conducting sales in a wide variety of art categories for over twenty five years. During this time, the company has gained an international reputation for expertise and successful sales, and in turn has seen its catalogs become research tools for collectors and dealers alike. Each year, Willis Henry Auctions holds a special auction of Shaker-made items including furniture, accessories, tools, manuscripts and art. These sales have garnered international attention and have generated several world record prices. In 1990, a Shaker work counter (see right for more information) achieved a record price of $220,000. A Shaker manuscript written in 1842 set another record when it received a winning bid of $17,050. Such results have established our firm at the forefront of the Shaker market. In addition, the company conducts several sales each year featuring fine Americana. These sales contain a broad spectrum of American art, furniture and accessories from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. Presently this category holds our personal record price. In 1996, an oil on canvas society painting by William Merritt Chase, executed circa 1895 enticed a final bid of $265,000 including buyer's premium (see right for more information). American Indian art auctions and ethnographic sales are also annual events. Finally, estate sales featuring 19th century furniture and decorative accessories, including oriental rugs, fine paintings, porcelains, silver, and jewelry are held approximately every two months.
