The Potomack Company auction house, based in the Washington, D.C. area, serves an international clientele of collectors, estates, historic institutions and museums.
Estates such as those of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Superior Oil (now part of Mobil Oil) founder/philanthropist W.M. Keck, Secretary of State Colin Powell, politicians and business leaders have chosen Potomack to sell their collections, as have museums, the Society of the Cincinnati, corporate art collections and owners of historical material, including letters of our Founding Fathers. In turn, buyers come to Potomack to acquire a piece of those historical lives and important works of art.
