The past few months have been so very challenging for so very many, and I know that for some in particular - it has been heartbreaking.
We do send sincerest wishes of comfort and strength to all whom have been impacted by the medical and social strains in this new era we are all living in.


A by-product of our new set of circumstances, is the fact that this auction (and the pre-sale exhibition) will be conducted according to very careful standards relating to social-distancing. Having said that, do please be in touch with us for all and any questions relating to bidding or anything else we may assist you with.

Wishing each of you well,
Daniel E. Kestenbaum
