All of us at James D. Julia Auctioneers want to wish you and your family the very best this holiday season! If the past couple of months have been any indication, 2016 will be a very busy year here at Julia’s.
Our first auction will be on February 3, 4, and 5th, and feature over $4,200,000 of Fine Art, Asian and Antiques. Artists featured include Martin Johnson Heade, John Singer Sargent, Howard Terpning, Abbott Fuller Graves, Antonio Jacobsen, Waldo Peirce, Marguerite Zorach and many, many others. We have important weathervanes, several bronzes (including one attributed to Edjard Munch), and an 18th century powder horn owned by Oliver Buttrick (1 of 52 known Minutemen at the Concord Bridge). It is shaping up to be an incredible auction!
Our March Firearms auction is scheduled for the middle of March. Julia’s is known as the largest auctioneer in the world for rare and collectible firearms. We already have over $10,000,000 of consignments for this incredible auction. Great firearms from the personal collections of Steve Ardia, Paul Tudor Jones II, Herbert Hyatt, the Estate of W.G. “Bill” Stewart, the Dr. Robert G. Cox Estate Collection, the Rod Fuller Estate Collection, and the Larry Baer Estate Collection.
We recently completed our Fall Rare Lamps, Glass and Fine Jewelry Auction. It was one of the most successful auctions in recent years at over $2,400,000. We saw strength in many areas including Cameo, Tiffany, Leaded Glass Lamps. We had a strong offering of Fine Jewelry as well, with a low estimate of almost $200,000.
We want to thank all of our bidders, buyers and consignors for their continued support. If you haven’t had the opportunity to work with Julia’s, we would welcome the chance to meet you!
