Case Antiques, Inc. Auctions & Appraisals

Case Antiques, Inc. is based in Knoxville, Tennessee, where our gallery is located, with a satellite office in Nashville, Tennessee – but our reach is worldwide. We conduct cataloged auctions of investment-quality art and antiques under the stewardship of knowledgeable professionals, including three accredited appraisers on staff. We accept consignments of objects of value: single items, large estates, or collections deaccessioned by museums, colleges or universities and other institutions. We work closely with trust officers and estate attorneys, estate executors or other individuals responsible for dispersing estates, as well as museum curators, private collectors seeking to refine or upgrade their collections, and individuals who are downsizing.

John is an accredited member of the Appraisers Association of America (AAA), the oldest professional association of personal property appraisers in the United States.

Nice Merchandise and Great Communication but Shippers Very Expensive
The auction house provided good information very quickly. My one issue is that the 3 shippers they recommend are very expensive. I wrote to Case complaining on this and they responded immediately and they were helpful. The shipping is out of their hands unfortunately and the high cost is an issue and will have to be factored in with my future bidding. Otherwise, I couldn't be happier with Case.
