Cordier Auctions & Appraisals

David and Sandra Cordier had been collectors for years when they began their business in 1980, while living in Halifax, Pennsylvania. Initially the Cordiers exhibited at area venues such as Black Angus near Reading, Pennsylvania, and the Eastern National Antiques Show held twice yearly in Harrisburg. In 1988 the Cordiers opened a permanent display at Northgate Antiques Mall in Carlisle and, as they became established, began to exhibit at regional shows such as Atlantic City, New Jersey, Baltimore, Maryland, and New York City. As the depth of their interest and knowledge increased, the Cordiers began developing a small market in original art from the 19th and early 20th centuries. While there are several contemporary art galleries in the greater Harrisburg area, the fine antiques establishments displayed very little, if any, original art from the period. This prompted the Cordiers to open a gallery located in Camp Hill. As the Internet and its impact on the antiques and collectibles industry grew, Cordier Antiques expanded into that venue. In 2000, Ellen Miller joined the company to oversee that component of the business in addition to other responsibilities. Realizing the significance of both traditional and online auctions, David Cordier became a licensed auctioneer in 2006 and began establishing Cordier Antiques & Auctions as the premier auction house in Central Pennsylvania. Currently, Cordier Antiques holds dozens of onsite, estate, real estate and multi consignor auctions each year in additional to twice yearly catalog auctions of select antiques and fine art. Cordier Antiques & Auctions was voted “Best Of” by Harrisburg Magazine in 2004 and has been Reader’s Choice for many years. David Cordier currently writes “At Home with Antiques” for the Harrisburg Patriot News “At Home” magazine. From 2002 through 2006, Mr. Cordier also wrote a bi-weekly feature column “Eye on Antiques” for the Patriot News that focused on antiques and related events in central Pennsylvania. Cordier Antiques & Auctions underwrites The Antiques Road Show on WITF public television.
