Show Us How You ‘Briggs Auction’!

One of the best parts about working in the auction business is getting to know our many customers and their unique auction style. Certain items speak to certain people, and we’re always so curious to find out what an item’s fate is!

In this edition of SOLD!, we take a glimpse at how some of our customers have given their auction finds new life by integrating them into their homes, shops, and ultimately, their lifestyle.


Purchased in our June 2018 Fine Estates Auction, this G.W. Sweigart sign has found a home in a Chester County farmhouse.

Sold in a more recent auction, this swan-handled cutting board serves as simple and subtle statement piece for a bare kitchen wall.
We love before-and-after photos, especially when they feature a stunning transformation like this Morris chair.
Sold in the June 2018 Fine Estate Auction, this Michelle Holzapfel Bread and Cheese Board found its place at the table, making for a great conversation piece.
A local shop owner uses this bronze horse sculpture to stylize his offerings.
This primitive rooster weathervane has a room with a view – and matches both the interior and exterior style of this local farmhouse.
Household items aren’t the only thing that customers swoon over! One bidder told us that he had been looking for this exact model Jeep Grand Cherokee – and found it right here at Briggs Auction.
Combining styles is this bidder’s favorite thing to do – the pie safe, cherub, and ship’s wheels blend perfectly in our opinion!
