Melrose Treasures Estate Sales was started in 2012.
I became fascinated with a wide range of antiques & collectibles while growing up in New England. Since the 1990's, I have owned several antique stores in the Boston area and Los Angeles. I am an expert in antique silver and can identify and appraise silver from all over the world including antique French silver which uses the most complex hallmarking system in the world as well as the spectacular works by Russian Imperial silversmith in Moscow and St Petersburg. Over the past 20 plus years, I have developed a passion for jewelry & watches including antique pocket watches. On my quest for knowledge, I found myself attending Estate Sales on a regular basis where I could find treasures that most, even the estate sale companies did not have the experience or knowledge to identify as such which lead for me to say "Good for me, not good for their clients". It was during this time that I realized I could probably do a better job helping family's heirs & beneficiaries liquidate their estate.
My wife Elena speaks fluent Russian and Ukraine. She is an integral part of Melrose Treasures, handling most of our marketing and new business and you will find her at every sale.
