John and Kathleen Nye acquired Dawson’s after his long and fruitful Sothebys career. They began Dawson and Nye in 2003, and with the move to Bloomfield seven years later, renamed the business to Nye and Company. Though they maintain relationships all over the country, the bulk of business comes from the Trust and Estate community in the Tri-state area.
Knowing the competitive nature of the New York Metropolitan Area, Nye and Company strives to work closely with private clients and their representatives providing the most thorough and cost-effective auction service possible.
Augmented by a modern website featuring online catalogues and store inventory, our traditional auctions and proven track record allow us to service some 500 clients annually, including celebrity estates, major corporate and unique private collections. Nye’s deep-seated roots in the art world provide this regional auction house with the stature and national reach of a much larger firm.
