In-Person Bidding is Temporarily Unavailable
Our auctions are free and typically open to the public. However, post-pandemic, we have yet to resume bidding in person. This will likely change in the near future. The auctions last approximately 6-8 hours and attendees are free to come for one lot or stay for the entire sale. There is ample seating and standing room on the auction floor and the surrounding rooms. At the opening of each lot, the auctioneer will announce the lot number and starting bid. To place a bid, raise your paddle and await acknowledgement from the auctioneer. The lot will close after the auctioneer has issued a Fair Warning and Last Call, at which time he will indicate the winning bidder and hammer price.
To register for in-house bidding, please complete the Bidder Registration Form or, visit us at our showroom 20 Beach Street, Bloomfield, NJ 07003 where we will be happy to register you. Upon arrival, you will need to provide state-issued photo identification, a valid credit card, and any applicable tax documentation.
Live auctions are held for “Estate Treasures,” and “Collectors’ Passion” Auctions. “Discovery” Auctions are online only (no live auction).

We strongly encourage you to request a condition report on any lot you may have interest in. Please be aware that all property is sold ‘as is’ and should be viewed in person or by a professional before the sale to assess the condition fully.
Please feel free to fill out the attached Condition Report Request form and email it to [email protected].
Nye & Company specialists will prepare condition reports as a courtesy. However, they should not be viewed as a substitute for physical examination by you and or your professional advisor. Nye & Company specialists are not trained restorers/conservators, and the report is not as detailed as a comprehensive report that a professional advisor would create. We will do our best to make reliable observations on the work, which we hope will be helpful to you, we strongly recommend you enlist the help of a professional advisor to prepare a more complete report. While we try to photograph items as accurately as possible, please note that digital photography and images, especially when viewed through computer screens, may present colors that differ slightly from the colors of the object when viewed in person. We also wish to respectfully remind you that the Nye & Company warranties pertaining to the property are limited and outlined in our Conditions of Sale and do not extend to condition.
