When firearms enthusiasts think of buying or selling at auction, they think of James D. Julia. The company’s March 2014 firearms auction was the largest grossing firearms auction ever totaling over $19 million+! The company’s October 2013 sale was a close second over $18 million. The company is the international leader in the rare and investment grade firearms category and routinely offers the finest firearms in the world at auction.
The Rare Glass and Lamp Division is the leader in this genre throughout North America. This division specializes in rare and collectible lighting and glass with occasional fine jewelry and silver. These auctions regularly gross nearly $2.5 million in sales. 2013 was one of our best years in memory, with our two combined auctions grossing $4,600,000. The division is well known for its outstanding offerings of Tiffany, Handel, Pairpoint, Duffner and Kimberly lighting, as well as numerous lesser-known makers of high quality lamp and glass products.
James D. Julia’s Antique Toy, Doll &
Advertising group is one of the four
leading divisions of its type in North
America and regularly establishes
both national and world records. The
department is also one of the oldest
such divisions in the country. In recent
years the division has developed a
focus on unique and unusual items,
including salesman’s samples and
one-of-a-kind items. The division’s
average sale value per lot is usually
one of the highest in the industry,
which in part allows Julia’s to represent
some of the finest collections and
collectors across the nation.
This is James D. Julia’s most expansive division; focusing on Americana, Fine Art, Antiques, Victoriana and Asian items. This unit conducts two auctions per year and has an international reputation for excellence. With sales routinely grossing $3 million to $5 million per auction, this division has established numerous world and national records. Department Head, Tony Greist along with his team, Katya Tilton, Jim Callahan, Martin Willis, Megan Phinney, and Bill Gage (Former Department Head and now Senior Consultant and Sales Rep.) provide an unbeatable combination of experience and expertise. This division handles complete estates and high value individual items in almost any antique collectible category.
