Byce, iGavel enter an agreement

Byce Auction & Realty recently entered into an agreement with iGavel, an online auction site based in New York City.

The auction website is dedicated solely to the sale of fine arts, antiques and collectibles to an international audience. Sales are in a traditional auction catalog online, with each lot accompanied by a number of images and clear descriptions.

The company also displays items at a gallery in New York City so customers can experience the products firsthand. The partnership will allow Byce Auction to work as iGavel’s Northeast Ohio associate.
