guyette and deeter



Lombard, Illinois – Jon Deeter and Zac Cote, as well as the entire Guyette & Deeter team, would like to thank everyone who made the April 25th and 26th auction in Lombard, Illinois one of our most successful in the company’s 40-year history in the auction business. 

The sale grossed over high estimate at $6.3 million with 15 lots bringing in over $100,000 and 105 lots selling for over $10,000.  The company set new world record prices for 10 artists and added 5 decoys to the top 100 decoy lots ever sold at auction.

The auction was headlined by Session I of the Alan and Elaine Haid collection of Darien, Connecticut and Hamilton, Ohio.  Many of the important pieces from the Haid collection had never been offered at auction and were pursued by new and seasoned collectors alike. 

The sale also featured the collection of Jim and Patti Aikin and the second offering of Oscar Peterson carvings from the Dave Fannon collection.  The Haid, Aikin, and Fannon collection totals were all over their respective high estimates.

Session II of the Haid collection will be offered in Guyette and Deeter’s Easton, Maryland auction on July 26th and 27th.  Quality consignments will be accepted for the July auction until June 1st.  Email Jon or Zac, or call the St. Michaels office to have your items included in this sale.
