Outstanding auction house

Exceptional, totally professional, helpful and friendly in every aspect of the business. Not surprisingly, I enjoy both buying and selling with Theodore Bruce. Review by David C. on 18 Oct 2022

This is a great auction house

Unlike many auction houses I have dealt with Theodore Bruce is ethical. They describe things accurately, are honest with the bidding system and are very professional and courteous to deal with. In my experience they have been great. Review by Jenny B. on 7 Oct 2022
