Founded in 1744, Sotheby's is the world's largest, most trusted and most dynamic marketplace for art and luxury goods. It enables the international community of collectors and connoisseurs to discover, acquire, finance and consign fine art and rare objects. Sotheby's reputation for trust and authenticity is backed by an unparalleled global network of specialists spanning 40 countries. Sotheby's conducts more than 600 auctions annually and offers a cross-category selection of items available for immediate purchase through both its physical shopping experience and its online marketplace.
Sotheby's conducts sales in more than 50 different categories of antiques and fine art. Examples of these categories include handbags and accessories, Islamic art, stamps, English furniture, jewelry and watches, coins and medals, antique sculpture, books and manuscripts, French and Continental furniture, and vintage toys, to name a few. Buyers rely on the expertise of Sotheby's staff to find the finest objects available. The most common way to purchase the Sotheby's inventory is by auction, and there is always a new online auction just around the corner. Immediate purchase of select items is also available through their high-end online marketplace.
Browsing the inventory of Sotheby's online auctions and marketplace is not for the impulse buyer. This is the home of the highest quality, rarest works of art and historically significant antiques. It is a collector's paradise, although it does take deep pockets to win an item at a Sotheby's auction. Anyone can list an item on this platform, although each item is subject to rigorous research and verification to determine its history and, of course, its authenticity.
Sellers wishing to use the Sotheby's platform have four options for their items: auction, private sale, buy-it-now, or sale in their physical stores. Consignors consistently turn to Sotheby's to achieve the highest prices for their exceptional objects. Expert staff is always available to guide a consignor through the basic steps of listing a special item and to help ensure a successful sale.
