BID

As a buyer, you can trust that nobody works harder than Garth's to bring to market a greater selection of the kind of merchandise you're looking for: desirable, quality antiques and art that strengthen the fine reputation as a collector or a dealer you've worked so hard to build.

 

Whether you wish to browse the auctions lot by lot online, by flipping through our state of the art digital catalog, by reviewing the high-quality, printed color catalog, or by examining items in our gallery during the extensive preview hours, Garth's offers you detailed descriptions, photos and condition reports (among the most trusted in our industry). 

 

Garth's also guarantees you a competitive bid system whether you are able to visit our gallery and bid in-house, or you need to bid remotely from the convenience of your home, office or favorite vacation spot. Be assured that Garth's absentee, phone and internet bidding systems are organized and simple to use. 

 

How Do I Bid?

Bidding is the opportunity to pursue your passion. Auction bidding is fast-paced, lively and, ultimately, a lot of fun. Once you browse a catalog, identify items of interest, gather information and condition reports from our appraisers, and you are almost ready to bid. 

 

Welcome! If this is your first auction with Garth's, we are pleased you have chosen to become one of Garth's valued clients.
