We are constantly expanding our collector-specific auction repertoire to better suit the evolving tastes of our clients, with a range of catalogues including Prints & Multiples, Art of the American West, Turn of the Century Design, and many more. While well-known for our flagship California & American Fine Art Auctions, Moran’s is also at the forefront in highlighting under-represented artists; our Women in Art and Studio Fine Art Auctions have proven immensely popular and offer works by artists at a wide range of price points, appealing both to the established and emerging collector.
Specialty Collections & Catalogues
Depending on the size, value, and category of your collection, Moran’s can customize an auction catalogue to market your property. Past specialty auctions have included couture and handbags, coins, pre-19th century Chinese art and objects, and vehicles.
We know that our clients’ collections are an important part of their life story. Moran’s has a proven track record in successfully marketing and selling estates or single-consignor collections, and can offer you or your clients the highest level of concierge estate services. From performing an initial walk-through to leaving an estate “broom-clean”, Moran’s offers customizable, boutique services from start to finish, handling the valuation, transportation and logistics, marketing, cataloguing and successful sale of a client’s personal property.
Single-Consignor Capsule Collections
Sometimes, a client’s collection has bidder appeal but doesn’t quite meet the requirements for a stand-alone catalogue or legacy auction. In those cases, we can carve out a portion of one of our standard specialty catalogues to highlight a collection of like objects from a specific collector or estate.
Appraisals & Valuation Services
In addition to auction valuations, Moran’s also offers a wide range of appraisal and paid valuation services, including fair market and insurance appraisals. By retaining Moran’s to evaluate your property, you can be sure that your heirs or trustees will be able to make informed decisions about the equitable distribution or liquidation of assets. Visit our Appraisals page for more information or to request an appraisal.
