Clars Auction Gallery已经成功举办Bay Area auctions of Fine Art, Decorative Objects, and Jewelry超过40年，在处理高品质资产拍卖方面凭借专业的知识和经验拥有卓著信誉。
Clars Auction Gallery got its start in the auction business in 1948 with Harvey Clar, an Oakland, California native who at 18 began conducting industrial auctions, including machine, woodworking and automobile dealer and repair shops. His skill and reputation grew over the next few decades as he conducted a wide variety of commercial and industrial auctions as well as the occasional estate auction. The demand for his services in evaluating and auctioning personal property, such as fine art, furniture and jewelry, continued to increase, and in 1972 Harvey Clar and his wife established their auction gallery in Oakland.
Clars Auction Gallery的经营历史始于1948年，由Harvey Clark开启。Harvey Clar出生于加州奥克兰，18岁就开始举办各类工业拍卖，包括机器、木工和汽车经销商及修理工厂。经过举办各种各样的商业和工业拍卖会还有不定期的资产拍卖会，他的技能和声誉在随后的几十年里不断增长。随着他提供的诸如艺术品、家具和珠宝等资产评估和个人财产拍卖服务需求不断增长，在1972年Harvey Clar和他的妻子在奥克兰成立了自己的拍卖行。
In 1996, Harvey Clar sold the estate auction gallery business to Oakland resident Redge Martin. Mr. Martin has a Bachelor’s Degree from Cornell University and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley. After graduate school, he worked for Ford Motor Company, Dole Foods, and Butterfield & Butterfield Auctioneers. Mr. Martin serves as CEO of the Gallery, as well as one of the main auctioneers and specialists.
1996年，Harvey Clar将资产拍卖业务出售给同样来自奥克兰的Redge Martin。Martin先生拥有康奈尔大学的学士学位和加州伯克利大学的MBA硕士学位。研究生毕业以后，他曾先后任职于福特汽车公司、都乐食品以及Butterfield & Butterfield拍卖行。Martin先生目前是Clars Auction Gallery的CEO，兼任主要拍卖师和专家。
Under his stewardship, Clars Auction House has grown in reputation and prominence, and is considered the West Coast’s premier auction house. It works with buyers and sellers throughout the world. In mid-2004, the gallery began offering simultaneous internet bidding on many of its lots.
在Martin先生的管理下，Clars Auction House的声誉和知名度不断提升，被认为是西海岸首屈一指的拍卖行。拍卖行为世界各地的买家和卖家都提供服务。在2004年中旬，拍卖行开始为其大多数拍品提供网络同步竞拍。
