Heritage Auctions, the largest collectibles auctioneer and the third-largest auction house in the world, has announced it is expanding its San Francisco office to accommodate its growing staff and services. The new office, located at 603 Battery Street, is within walking distance to the city’s Embarcadero and eastern waterfront and financial district.
“This expansion will allow us to grow our staff immediately,” said Alissa Ford, Director of Fine & Decorative Arts in the San Francisco office. “We already offer an array of services and we are now seeking more specialists to serve our growing clientele in the region.”
The new space will allow Heritage San Francisco to hold larger exhibitions of fine art by well-known artists as well as frequently-changing displays.
The office already offers clients specialists in the areas of Arms & Armor, Fine & Decorative Arts, including California and Western Art, Modern & Contemporary Arts, Entertainment and Music Memorabilia, Fine Jewelry and European Art. Growth areas will target Comics and Original Comic Art and U.S. Coins.
A Grand Opening is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m., Oct. 26 and will coincide with a special preview of the firm’s American Art Signature® Auction.
“We are growing to enhance and accommodate more specialists and services,” Ford said. “We are pleased to be San Francisco’s go-to auction house.”
