Description

Rachel Davis Fine Arts was founded in July of 1987 and a commercial gallery opened in May 1992. We began auctions of works on paper in October of that year, and added auctions of paintings in March 1996. Later in 1996, we began auctioning rare and out-of-print books. In 2001 we branched out to become a full service auction house including furniture, jewelry and decorative arts.   www.racheldavisfinearts.com/
