MYSTIC, CONN. – Members of southeastern Connecticut’s arts, business and political community were on hand Wednesday, May 18, to welcome Robert C. Eldred Co., Inc, to Mystic. Home to Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium, the resort town and sailing capital is a center for marine art, history and biology.
“Mystic is a lot like Cape Cod. We feel right at home here,” Joshua Eldred, president of the family-owned auction house based in East Dennis, Mass., told guests. The company will display highlights from upcoming auctions, conduct appraisals and receive consignments in the new venue. The gallery is across the street from Mystic Station, served by Amtrak and Shoreline East, and less than two miles from I-95’s Exit 90.
Customer convenience and proximity to New York and Boston were key considerations for management in picking the site. The choice was validated the day of the ribbon cutting, when Eldred’s accepted a consignment of 13 pieces of furniture.
Selections from upcoming sales are shown here. The firm conducts approximately 25 auctions a year. Here’s wishing New England’s oldest auction house a busy summer.
At 5 Roosevelt Avenue, Eldred’s Mystic office is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and by appointment. For information, 508-385-3116 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
