Ranch & Coast: Abell Auction Company

Everyone knows estate sales are one of the surest ways to score exceptional items. That’s especially true with Los Angeles-based auctioneers Abell, who have handled covetable belongings from the likes of a former U.S. president and Hollywood celebrities.  “Abell is a treasure trove for Southern California’s top decorators, designers, collectors and small dealers,” says Abell Auction Company CEO Don Schireson. “We present our clients with a constant influx of fine and decorative art, modern and antique furnishings, fine jewelry, and 20th century design.” Abell, which has a staff that includes translators for the growing Asian market, features furniture by famous designers like Paul Evans, Paul McCobb, Charles Eames, Walter Lamb, and Finn Juhl. One recent standout item was a Philip and Kelvin LaVerne cabinet that sold for $35,000. Abell’s February auction will showcase a wall installation by iconic glass artist Dale Chihuly. (323.724.8102)
