We are both local and international.

Bethesda Auction dedicates solely to the sale of fine arts, antiques and collectibles offered by a network of local collectors, art dealers, appraisers and other arts professionals.  We strive to present single objects or entire collections before an international audience at a minimal expense for the seller and buyer.


 There are three ways to bid through Bethesda Auction: absentee bids, bidding by telephone and internet bidding through several bidding platforms. Please keep in mind that phone, absentee and internet bidding should be arranged, and registration confirmed, well before the start of each auction session.


Selling through Bethesda Auctions is easy. Call us, email photos of the art your wish to sell, or simply text us the photo of your items. We will promptly estimate your pieces and contact you. Upon accepting consignment we will catalogue, photograph and advertise your items and feature them in the upcoming auction. Finally, you get the sale proceeds check minus seller’s commission after 30 days of the auction.

Our seller’s commission starts at 15% and decreases depending on the value of the piece. Unlike other auctions, we don’t charge sellers separate fees for research, cataloging, professional digital photography, insurance, packing services, marketing and advertising.
