Cornerstone Auction Gallery is the longest continuously run auction company in Rhode Island. In the words of owner Bob Fricker "I follow in my father's footsteps, and now my grandson , Jason , has joined us, making this the fourth generation of this family-run business. It's a business built on honesty and integrity. We've been in the auction business for over 50 years because we're good at what we do, and love the work. Some of our same customers have been with us for 30 years! Why trust an amateur in handling your precious collectibles, antiques, and family heirlooms."

Cornerstone is a partnership comprised of Bob Fricker Sr, Bob Fricker Jr. and grandson Jason Fricker. All are involved in the full time running of the business. Bob Sr. and wife Pauline are from Riverside, Bob Fricker Jr. resides in East Providence, Jason and wife Brianna resides in West Warwick, so they have the east and west bay, and everything in between covered! In addition, we feel that we have the best auction staff in the state, a talented group of runners and bookkeepers keep everything running smoothly on auction night.

Cornerstone Auction Gallery has the capability to move an entire household of antiques into their auction hall. Auctions are held at The Ivy Garden (formerly Evelyn's Villa) located at 272 Cowesett Avenue, West Warwick, RI on the third Monday evening of each month. Auction hall is the large ballroom seating about 250 people, at the rear of the building. Cornerstone also holds a number of "on location" estate auctions as well as several non-profit auctions annually for church organizations, youth groups and the Boy Scouts.

We are always looking for quality consignments for our monthly auctions, whether it is an entire estate or just a few items. Estates often need contents appraised be it for tax-related purposes or for the benefit of family members. Cornerstone can professionally handle all of the fine details involved. No matter if your estate is large or small; you will receive the same courteous service.

I let them do what they said they would do which is to be loyal to their consignors, only to find out they gave my pieces away for less than pennies on the dollar. Inside job all the way. I trusted them and they cheated me royally. Don't let it happen to you, never consign with cornerstone auctions!
