Ron Fox, owner of Fox Auctions , tells of the greatest business compliment he ever received. For decades, the greatest name in American antiques has been Israel Sack. In 1988, Fox Auctions had a Colonial silver tankard in their live sale, in St Louis.
Mr. Israel Sack was interested, and personally had a private viewing of the piece prior to the sale. He informed us that he would send a representative to St Louis for the live bidding. The night before the sale Mr Sack called Ron. He said, “I have thoroughly checked you out young man, and you have a Sterling reputation.” He went on to directly give his six-figured bid saying he was confident it would be handled honestly and professionally. Our business has always be handled in that manner, with honesty and ethics.
