Schmidt's Antiques Inc. Since 1911

Since 1911 Schmidt's has been instrumental in uniting buyers and sellers of Antiques and Art through the process known as Auctions. Buyers can bid with the confidence afforded through our accurate, honest descriptions and meticulous condition reports along with high resolution photography of any item we sell. Bidding can be executed live in-house, online simultaneously or through the Liveauctioneers absentee system, live over the phone or through our own in-house absentee bidding system. We also assist buyers in local and worldwide shipping arraignments of purchases and even drop off small items at the local UPS Store so buyers can avoid additional pick-up charges. We are very happy to have been awarded the "Top Rated Auctioneer" designation that identifies the top 1% of the over 5000 auctioneers who "consistently excels in accuracy, communication, ease of payment, and shipping quality" as rated by our clients. We strive to make the entire process simple, honest and productive for both parties. We can provide appraisal, pick-up, inventory, photography, research, cataloging, advertising and sale of one item or an entire collection. Our consignor payments are always on time, as promised, without excuses. Advertising can be targeted to specific audiences through traditional print media and various online vehicles, we have also developed extensive mailing lists and an active Facebook page to provide up to date information to collectors and potential buyers worldwide. Our facilities and systems have all been designed and purpose built in order to produce high level auctions for the sale of your Fine and Decorative Art, Antique Furniture or Antique Clock and Watch Collection as well as many other genres of Antiques and Collectibles. Cataloging, photography, auction preview and the auction itself are all done within our large gallery to eliminate extra moving and handling of your items and ensure their safety and security throughout the entire process. Contact us yourself to find out what our 100-plus years of Auction experience can do to benefit you.

It’s very nice to deal with an honest auction company
I was very happy with purchase of my print, I was able to get it for a lot less than my max bid, I think that’s very commendable, they were very helpful in making the shipping arrangements also so all in all I’d deal with them again ….. great company thank you

Great buying experience
Great buying experience. I have purchased things from Schmidts antiques many times both in their auctions and at their store. I am lucky enough to live close to them so I probably stop by once a month just to see what surprises I might find. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. You never have to worry about the quality or the provenance of items you get from Schmidt’s. They are one of the best antique/auction houses in the Midwest.
