We are excited to present an array of art and antiques from estates and collections throughout NH and VT. Including a special group of items form a Cornish Colony home along with items from Dorset, VT and Saint Albans, VT estates. 

Due to an overwhelming concern for clients and staff, I have decided there will be no in house or outdooor bidding at this auction. Please call or email to make arrangements for a private scheduled preview prior to June 6th, and plan to either absentee, phone or live bid online via "Smithlive".  I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, its not an easy choice as we all want to get back to some resemblance of normal, however I think we are best served to play it safe at this point in time.
