Stunning porcelain depicting Queen Marie Antoinette of France and Navarre & 2 Copper Candelabras!
We had a fantastic experience with Main Auction Galleries! The communication was excellent, and the company that Main Auction Galleries recommended for shipping packaged the items exceptionally well, ensuring that it arrived in perfect condition. The company used for shipping was **********! Our acquisition was a French porcelain plaque depicting Queen Marie Antoinette of France and Navarre and two copper candelabras. Overall, we highly recommend Main Auction Galleries and Total Pack N Ship for their exceptional service. It was truly a pleasure doing business with them, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with them again in the future. 👑 💐

Truly one of my FAVORITE auction houses
It's almost a challenge to write a review for Main Auction Galleries because they do everything so well. Their auctions consistently feature well-curated and unique items for every price point. Payment is easy and I've never had a problem with the shippers on their list. Most importantly, their staff is knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and a pleasure to work with. I couldn't be happier with my winnings.
