Can you give me a new device, and how to sell it, and where? I’m looking to sell as soon as possible.

Delia Sep 17, 17:19 UTC

I just commented - for the smaller piece - that it, and this might appeal to Leslie Hindman Auctions, Toomey Auctions or Wright Auctions, all in the greater Chicago area. Each can discuss timelines for consignment, sale and settlement.
Let me know if you have additional questions.

Are there any options in the Detroit area?

Delia Sep 17, 19:08 UTC

DuMouchelles is a pretty reputable auction house

Delia Sep 17, 19:09 UTC

Though they're not known for MidCentury Modern and Frank Lloyd Wright, which can be a bit of a specialized audience...

Brian mccandliss Sep 17, 19:17 UTC

Do I need to have the pieces moved to the actual auction houses?

Delia Sep 17, 19:25 UTC

If you sell through an auction house, they will usually expect the seller to absorb the cost of shipping to the auction house; the buyer is responsible for getting the items from the auction house to wherever the buyer is.
