Customer Question
Hello! I am...

Hello! I am seeking some direction. I have purchased a collection of art work by Charles Egri. He was a commercial artist in the first half of the last century. He did art for several New York magazines. His works are modern , industrial as well a some fantasy and organic styles. I would like to find a buyer or museum. His brother was more famous for the works that he did in Taos in the 50's. Any ideas?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

There are framed pieces and unframed, as well as early sketches.

Thank you for your patience. Here is a list of auction houses that would handle a collection of fine art to sell. They can go either as individual pieces or as a collection but you would talk to the auction house about how you would like to sell. I have provided links to each Auction House for you to look over and fil out the online forms providing a few photos. You will receive back what they feel they would bring at their auction of if the come is unable to help you. If they can not feel they would gain a high value they ay refer you to other options in selling. From what I have read on the artist he was a well known artist in his own right as well as doing exhibits with his brother and sister. I have found no current prior sells on his works of art. The list below is a variety of auction houses to contact from west coast to east coast. You have no obligation to go with one so you may wish to contact each of them and send them photos to se what each has to say on the art works and what the values would be. Auction houses do take a percentage of the sold value and that would all be presented to you in their final offerings.
