I know I have been remiss in my duties! I mean to say that I am so sorry that I didn't publish these auction goodies sooner. They are great and they have all been sold- as a matter of fact, the auction is nearly set for the June event and there should be some great old 'barn' items in it including saddles and shafts of an old cart.
But these caught my eye and they didn't go for too much this time- although a couple of pieces of Ivory scrimshaw from the early 1800's did sell for over $2000.
This adorable cabinet from 1910-30 sold for $75.00. I think that is a real bargain because it is solid oak and it was in perfect condition ( even though my picture is fuzzy). It had an interesting cage type shelf on the upper left, and a glass front on the bookcase. These were made a lot of the time by Sears and sold through a catalog.
This beauty went for about $350. Solid Oak with a black and white marble top. The mirror was beveled, but the struts that held the mirror to the base were a little bug eaten. Still, that would be an easy fix. A dealer bought this and he'll have it in his shop for at least $1000.
I don't need dishes, lord knows I don't have any room to store them, but I really thought about bidding on this complete set.It had creamer and suger with lids, cream soup bowls, a pedestal petit four standing plate, gravy boat, platters and dinner size dishes. So sweet! I think it went for under $100.
Print of a watercolor under glass with a great framing job! Not a Tim Cox, but similar- it went for... wait for it....
So there it is in a nut shell. There was a lot of good stuff there this time and the prices were pretty good for the buyers. I didn't get as many pictures as I'd have liked but they have given me a little more responsibility at the Auction house- I'm managing the Preview Staff and some other stuff- so I am a little more ' under the glass' theses days.
