ABOUT LARK MASON AND iGAVEL
In 2003, long before the recent proliferation of online auction sites, Lark Mason had already established iGavel Inc., the online international network of independently owned regional auction salesrooms, specializing in the sale of fine and decorative arts. With his stellar reputation as a leading expert, appraiser, and television personality on the PBS series The Antiques Roadshow, Mason’s innovative approach for online sales-with uniform buyer’s premium rates, vetted sellers, published condition reports, and a guarantee for items sold in the two-week auction process-set a new standard and remains unique among Web-based auction companies.
A native New Yorker and a former director of Sothebys.com, Mason is the owner of his eponymous auction house, which specializes in Asian art and recently sold a painting for more than $4.3 million, a record-breaking price for Lark Mason Associates and one of the highest amounts of any work of art sold online. That result was not an anomaly. In 2014, five other members of the iGavel consortium also had record-breaking results: Elders sold a Chinese scroll for $1.1 million; Everard, an oil by Gabriele Münter for more than $250,000; Litchfield County, a pair of Chinese vases for nearly $250,000; Nye, a Louis XIV cabinet for nearly $100,000; and Witherell’s, a horn-veneered center table for $90,000.
