Hammersite Inc., the successor of “Ben Ami Gallery” Auction House established in 1984, is an online fine art and antiques auction house, specializing in Israeli art and Judaica and dedicated to providing investment-grade art to an international clientele of artists, dealers, art lovers and collectors. Founded by Michael Ben Ami and active since 1999, it is the only online art auctioneer in Israel. Today Hammersite has over 16,000 Israeli and international registered clients, which comprise the largest community of Israeli art and Judaica consumers in the world. By marrying 20 years of experience and the renowned reputation of Ben-Ami auctioneers with the global reach and accessibility of the internet, we provide art sellers and buyers with unmatched convenience, value, service, and ease of use. Unlike most art auctioneers, Hammersite holds auctions almost on a monthly basis, yielding prompt revenue for consigned items.
Throughout its history, Hammersite has held many high profile auctions, among which were the Luzzatto family estate sale and the Histadrut collection. It also holds exclusive rights to the estates of prominent Israeli artists such as Yehezkel Streichman and Sionah Tagger. In our years of operation we have sold thousands of items, from Persian rugs to Chagalls, from Janco to Picasso and Rubin.
