Excellent ServiceI purchased 3 lots from the February 28, 2021 Auction of differing dimensions that most would consider difficult but a little patience paid off. It took a month to receive the items, some of which was extremely fragile, but all items as described and in perfect condition.

Definitely a Five Star Auction House!I'm always delighted when an antique in one of the categories I collect is coming up for auction at Thomaston Place. First of all, I know that item will be of the quality I expect vetted by their thoroughly accurate descriptions and numerous clear, well photographed catalog images. Any questions are answered promptly and completely. The actual auctions run quickly, efficiently, and fairly. Invoicing is prompt and payment procedures are quick and easy. I am particularly impressed with their fine reasonably priced in house packing and shipping department. Have purchased several fragile items all of which arrived in absolutely perfect condition. I forgot to mention that the quality and variety of art and antiques offered at Thomaston Place is second to none. Thomaston Place Auction is at the top of the list of my favorite auction houses!
