Since 1924, Alex Cooper Auctioneers has been auctioning estates, fine antiques and collectibles, and Oriental rugs. Based in Towson, Maryland, Alex Cooper holds about 16 auctions annually and also deals in commercial and residential real estate. The family-owned and operated auction house is still run by its 80-year-old president Joseph Cooper, who has remained an active part of the business since he was 21. Alex Cooper Auctioneers makes it easy for online bidders to participate in its auctions alongside its in-house bidders; in 2014 they offered 19 live auctions online on Invaluable.com for fine and decorative arts, antique and quality reproduction furniture, jewelry and silver, firearms, toys and trains, and much more.
The auction house celebrated its 90th year in business in 2014 and has plans in 2015 for a major million-dollar renovation that is intended to reinvent the business, according to the Baltimore Sun. Alex Cooper Auctioneers also has a long history of garnering impressive sales at its auctions. For example, in 2010, a ceremonial Nazi baton with an estimated value between $10,000 and $15,000 received a top bid of $731,600 at auction.
Alex Cooper Auctioneers' skilled specialists have expertise in a wide range of areas, including historical papers, Oriental rugs and tapestries, 20th Century decorative arts, Asian arts, jewelry and watches, and more. From its humble beginnings with five employees, the auction house has grown to employ 48 people, including the children, grandchildren, and nieces and nephews of the original founders.
A full-service auction house that also works with real estate, Alex Cooper Auctioneers can handle all aspects of estate and property sales, from clearing out a home of its belongings to auction preparation to selling the actual house. While auctions, property valuations, and consignments keep the firm busy, the real estate side of the business stays active selling everything from rowhouses to restaurants to hotels.
