“ I’m downsizing – do I keep or sell? Auction or Estate Sale or both?”
“Do I really have to ship my art and antiques out of state to sell them for top dollar?”
Every day, we work with families, estate executors, trust officers, and even museums to help answer these questions. Our goal is to provide integrity, knowledge and solutions – and, when appropriate, discretion. References from our many satisfied private clients are available on request, but Case’s reputation in the world of arts and antiques is well established. In 2007, Case held a single-owner auction in Nashville of the art and antiques from the historic Glen Leven Plantation. Other notable Nashville estates and collections have included the estate of Sarah Hunter Hicks Green (of Devon Farm Plantation), the estate of Margaret Lindsley Warden, and the estate of Dr. Benjamin Caldwell (2017). Case has also auctioned deaccessioned art and antiques for the Knoxville Museum of Art, the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Cheekwood, Belle Meade Plantation, and the Birmingham Museum of Art, and from prestigious private and corporate collections. Case’s catalogued live auctions are marketed worldwide via the internet, print and social media, and Case holds world art auction records for several artists and in a variety of collecting categories.
Our Nashville auction and appraisal office is located in the historic Vanderbilt-Hillsboro Village area, just off Interstate 440, at 2106 21st Avenue South, Suite #2, Nashville TN, 37212. We serve clients throughout Middle Tennessee, as well as in Memphis and West Tennessee, Southern Kentucky, and Northern Alabama including Huntsville and Birmingham.
