Can you recommend an auction house or auction houses to send these to?

...not just this linen set, but all them in our collection

Hi Abigail,
You might have some luck with South Bay auctions on Long Island. They recently sold the quilt collection of quilt dealer, Laura Fisher, so they have a good handle on early textiles.

I checked with South Bay Auctions and several local auction houses in and near Arizona and no one will accept these. Any other suggestions?

You might try Litchfield Auctions in Litchfield, Conn or Roland Auctions in NY
