Stay Safe Procedures

Gallery Preview

For everyone's safety, the gallery is open by appointment only. Only one client (or family group) will be in the gallery at a time. Masks are required and we ask that children not be brought along. If you are interested in jewelry please let us know in advance which lots you want to see. Jewelry will undergo ultrasonic cleaning after each handling and the gallery is cleaned regularly thoughout the day.

Auction Pick-ups

Payment and pick-up at the gallery will be available curbside by appointment. We are currently expanding the range of items we can ship in-house and will do so at actual UPS rates, with packing and materials offered free of charge. Additionally, we will offer free storage for 90 days. The gallery remains open and we are available by email and phone if you need further information about any items in this sale.

Free Appraisals

We will still offer free appraisals. The first step is to email images and we will respond within 24 hours. It is usually not necessary to include more than one or two images per item, but do include dimensions. You can forward images to jack@fairfieldauction.com. If an in-person evaluation is needed we can view items at the gallery on a "curbside" basis using gloves and masks. Call for more information.


We are currently accepting items for future sales. The first step to consignment is the appraisal process described above. On-site pick-ups are available, but strict safety procedures apply.

Immediate Outright Purchases

We are always interested in buying quality antiques, fine art, silver and jewelry. Through our network of collectors, dealers and institutional buyers, purchases from $500 to $500,000 can be completed immediately. We can also include clean-out services as part of estate buy-outs. Call (203) 880-5200 or email jack@fairfieldauction.com today if we can be of service.
