Founded in 1947
Eldred’s has been owned and operated by the Eldred family for three generations. Founded in 1947 by Robert C. Eldred, Sr., Eldred’s is the oldest continuously operating auction house in New England.
Headquartered on Cape Cod’s historic Route 6A in East Dennis, Massachusetts, and with a satellite gallery in Mystic, Connecticut, Eldred’s is both a New England tradition and a destination for collectors from across the United States and around the globe.
Throughout the years we’ve handled many impressive consignments, have routinely broken records for the highest prices ever realized at auction in a variety of consignment areas, and have been at the forefront of online auction technology. While auctions have changed dramatically since our inception, Eldred’s remains true to its commitment of personalized, expert service.
