Pook & Pook, Inc.

The firm of Pook & Pook Inc. was founded in 1984 by Ronald and Debra Pook. Located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, approximately thirty-five minutes west of Philadelphia, Pook & Pook’s offices reside in an old stone inn built in 1761. The auction company grew out of the Pook’s antique business, which they had started a decade earlier in the same location. Right from the start, the auctions at Pook & Pook were a draw for major museums, estate representatives and serious collectors. Believing in the personal service provided to clients, Debra and Ron lead by example as they work closely on researching, photographing and handling the fine antiques offered during their high-energy auctions. Today Pook & Pook, Inc. holds up to twelve auctions a year, each of them unique. The Period Furniture and Decorative Accessories Auctions include a wonderful selection of high end antique furniture, fine art, folk art, oriental carpets and period accessories. The Decorative Arts Sales feature a range of items including furniture, art and accessories. Fun and fast paced they offer bidders the opportunity to take home unique pieces for reasonable prices. While all of Pook & Pook’s auctions include art, a wide range of artistic styles can be found at the Fine Art Sales, where twice a year the firm puts on smaller auctions that only offer fine art and sculpture. Every year since the company was first founded, Pook & Pook has also put on at least one specialty sale featuring items from a non-profit institution or a single consignor sale featuring an estate or individual collection. All of the different sales offered through Pook & Pook give both buyers and consignors a range of buying and selling opportunities. The valuable customer and consignor base has continued to expand and now includes over 30,000 individuals, businesses and non-profit organizations. Many of Pook & Pook’s customers have been attending Pook & Pook’s auctions since that first auction back in 1984. With its nationally renowned appraisal services and distinguished auctions, the firm grew to its present level with a staff of expert appraisers, auctioneers and experienced support staff. Ronald and Debra Pook, and their knowledgeable staff, have been committed to the field of antique furniture, decorative accessories and fine art now for more than thirty years. As the firm grows in their new state of the art headquarters, more and more museums, educational institutions, trust and estate representatives, and serious collectors are utilizing the various expert services offered.
