Schmidts Antiques Inc. Since 1911

Now celebrating our second century in the Auction business!

Since 1911 Schmidts has been instrumental in uniting buyers and sellers of Art and Antiques through the process known as Auctions. We strive to make the entire process simple, honest and productive for all parties. For individual sellers and estates we can provide appraisal, pick-up, inventory, photography, research, cataloging, advertising and sale of one item or an entire collection. Our consignor payments are always on time, as promised, without excuses. Advertising is targeted to specific audiences through traditional print media and various online vehicles, we have also developed extensive mailing lists and an active Social Media presence to provide up to date information to collectors and potential buyers worldwide. Buyers can bid with the confidence afforded through our accurate, honest descriptions and meticulous condition reports along with high resolution photography of any item we sell. We also assist in local and worldwide shipping arraignments of purchases and even drop off small items at the local UPS Store so buyers can avoid additional pick-up charges. Our facilities and systems have all been designed and purpose built in order to produce high level auctions for the sale of your Antiques and Fine Art Collections. Contact us yourself to find out what our 100-plus years of Auction experience can do to benefit you.

We have been conducting online auctions for over 20 years and are proud to have a customer rating in the top 1% of the over 5000 auctioneers currently using the Liveauctioneers selling platform. Customer service and reputation are extremely important, and we value all of our client relationships.
