CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County auction house known for its work on behalf of the city’s wealthy is facing a rash of customer complaints about bounced checks and unpaid bills.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch bit.ly/1bDao7F reports that Ivey-Selkirk Auctioneers specializes in antiques and fine art. The company dates to 1830 and is one of the oldest businesses of its kind in the country.

Owner Malcolm Ivey said that Ivey-Selkirk has canceled an upcoming auction and is conducting business by appointments as it restructures following the sudden departure of seven employees to start their own firm. He declined to discuss its financial condition.

The Better Business Bureau in St. Louis says it has received more than 35 complaints against the company in recent years over late or undelivered payments.
