For a century, Abell Auction Company has skillfully practiced and passionately preserved the American tradition of public auction. Now in its fourth generation and still family-operated, it is distinguished as Southern California’s premier marketplace for fine estate furnishings, art, and jewelry – drawing an international audience of buyers and sellers.
Abell’s weekly general and quarterly fine art and antique sales draw a global following of in-person and online bidders. Located in the nation’s second-largest market, it has successfully fused its century-old brick-and-mortar business model with internet sales while maintaining a key differentiator—its personal touch.
Abell’s skilled professionals are among the best, ranging from appraisers, catalogers, and gemologists to translators who speak Mandarin and Cantonese to accommodate the growing Asian market. So respected is Abell’s reputation for trust, integrity, and the ability to sell and many clients and employees have stayed with the company for decades.
In today’s competitive marketplace, Abell combines the intimacy of a live auction with the global reach of internet sales. These are ingredients for success that come only once in a hundred years.
