Preparing for our September auction…

Our last auction was a HUGE SUCCESS!  The highlights were definitely the Eastern Lumber Co. photograph album (sold for $1700), the Victorian mahogany partner’s desk (sold for $1500), and the Merklen Bros. lamp table (sold for $700).  We had a terrific gallery in the auction house as well as nearly 200 online participants!  Many of you have asked how you can see the full auction results online.  Simply click on the blue Proxibid on the right to go our online auction listing, click on the gray “Show Archived Events” banner toward the bottom of the page, and then click on the auction results you’d like to view.

But, as is the nature of our business, we are already preparing for our next auction on the 11th of September.  It will feature: a large selection of antique furniture including a Berkey & Gay dining set, Stickley chair, and other nice Arts & Crafts pieces; a gorgeous collection of green Versailles Fostoria glassware; Royal Doulton toby jugs; assorted silver, china, and pottery; several antique photograph and trade card albums; swords; musical instruments; vintage Barbies & accessories; antique rugs; and so much more!
