Welcome to Simpson Galleries. My name is Ray Simpson and Simpson Galleries is Houston’s oldest Fine Art and antique auction house.
Today I’d like to explain the definition of the word auction. An auction is a public sale of goods or property to the highest bidder. In our case, the goods and property that we sell primarily focus on antiques, fine art, decorative arts, and designer furniture.
Our sales are held quarterly and include a wide range of merchandise from paintings, furniture, collectibles, fine china and sculpture. Previews are always offered prior to the sale and are open to the public. Our marketing materials are print and online based with bidding available via online telephone and absentee. By offering on multiple bidding platforms, we are able to maximize the potential value of your items.
Our auctions are consignment based, meaning that the public can send us information about the individual items or collections that they own for us to review and estimate their value. From there, your items will be photographed, cataloged, marketed and auctioned. We hold a preview period prior to each auction which is open to the public and available to you both in person and online.
We want to streamline the auction experience and have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to appreciate the most out of your collection. With an international base and thousands of customers, it has been possible for our third-generation auction house to remain Houston’s best. To get started visit our website at SimpsonGalleries.com or call the gallery at 713-524-6751. We’ve made it easy to send us your information and we look forward to hearing from you soon foreign
