In 1978, Lloyd and Ruth Ralston got their first antique toy collection for auction, and it's been a success story ever since. Now run by Glenn and Liane Ralston, they hold 8 to 10 auctions a year and have a large and loyal worldwide clientele.
Lloyd Ralston Gallery has been one of the busiest and best auction galleries since its inception. The primary focus has always been full-color, professionally- described, cataloged auctions of vintage collectible antique toys, trains, soldiers and die cast vehicles.
Always family owned, it is located in Shelton, Connecticut. The 10,000 sq. ft., showcase-lined gallery has seating for 100 people. Fully air-conditioned and heated, it offers a comfortable atmosphere for attending bidders. The hours are 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday or by appointment.
When you contact us at Lloyd Ralston Gallery, you are speaking directly to a helpful and knowledgeable owner who is ready to assist you. Their goal has always been to maximize consignor's profit while also making the auction friendly and easy for the buyer.
