Jeffrey S. Evans & Assoc.
Gallery Location & Shipping Address:
Jeff Evans is the former president and senior auctioneer of Green Valley Auctions, Inc. (1979-2008) and the head of Green Valley's catalogued auction division (1995-2008).
While he was still a senior in high school Jeff became sole owner of Green Valley Auctions, which had been founded in 1967 by his parents Leighton and Kathryn Evans.
Effective January 1, 2009, after thirty years of ownership, Jeff and wife/business partner Beverley Evans withdrew their catalogued auction division from Green Valley Auctions and launched their new company, Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates, Inc.
From their state-of-the-art auction gallery, built in 2009 within walking distance of the old location, Jeff and Beverley continue to conduct the quality catalogued auctions of early glass and lighting and fine antiques that brought national attention to Green Valley Auctions over the years.
The company logo is inspired by the decoration found on the circa 1800 Shenandoah Valley of Virginia hanging cupboard that brought the highest bid price in the history of Jeff Evans' catalogued auctions. Boldly painted by Johannes Spitler in red, white and blue, and featuring a six-point buck bounding diagonally across the door panel, the cupboard achieved a record price for American painted furniture when it sold on November 13, 2004 for $962,500.
