Pook & Pook Inc. was founded by Ronald and Debra Pook in 1984
Pook & Pook, Inc.’s first sale in 1984 grossed $125,000, a respectable amount for the new auction house run by the Pooks and one part-time employee. The firm had grown significantly by 1999, when Ron Pook sold a Philadelphia piecrust tea table for $1.4 million, making Pook & Pook, Inc. the first auction house outside New York City to break the million dollar mark on a single item. In June of that same year, Pook & Pook, Inc. held its historic William Koch sale, the largest on-site, one-day auction ever held in the United States at that point, grossing over $4.3 million.
Pook & Pook Inc. was founded by Ronald and Debra Pook in 1984 out of the Pook’s thriving antique business, which they began a decade earlier. Located in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Pook & Pook, Inc.’s offices are approximately thirty-five minutes west of Philadelphia, in an old stone inn built in 1761 with an adjacent state-of-the-art auction gallery. Right from its inception, the company’s auctions incited the interest of major museums, estate representatives, and serious collectors.
