Sloans & Kenyon, LLC

Sloans & Kenyon was formed in 2003, when owner Stephanie Kenyon and two partners bought C.G. Sloan & Co. Now, with 25 full time employees, Sloans & Kenyon holds several major catalogued auctions each year featuring art, antiques, and collectibles. In 2014, Sloans & Kenyon hosted 15 live online auctions with Invaluable.com, where the auction house is a platinum member. The auction house attracts notable art pieces, and in 2009, Sloans & Kenyon sold an 18th century unsigned oil painting of the Grand Canal in Venice for $687,125. It was originally estimated to sell for $6,000 to $8,000, but is believed to be the most expensive painting ever sold in the Washington, D.C. area. Other important sales from Sloans & Kenyon include Frank Lloyd Wright drawings and an 1860s walnut bed similar to the bed in the White House's Lincoln bedroom. Sloans & Kenyon's leading sales departments include art, antiques, and collectibles, but as an estate auction house, they have a wide variety of treasures available. Other specialist departments include silver, English and continental furniture, Americana, jewelry, arts and armor, and books and manuscripts. Services & Staff Each year, Sloans & Kenyon holds between six to eight catalogued auctions, as well as monthly collector's auctions. Bidders may participate in person, by absentee bid, by telephone bid, and with live online bidding through Invaluable.com. An auction schedule is available online, as well as searchable catalogues. For consignors, auction estimates are available free of charge. Consignments may be conducted on site, or photographs of items can be mailed or emailed to Sloans & Keynon. Representatives are available to travel on location if necessary as well, particularly for estates and large collections.
