For this auction we're combining the estate of a former Wellesley
family with a partial estate from Proctor, Vermont and adding
in a fantastic collection of vintage movie posters from a drive-in
movie theater in Indiana that closed in the 1960s. We're very
excited to be offering our finest selection of furnishings as
well as a choice collections of smalls and ephemera. 2007 was
a great launch year for our business, and we're kicking off
2008 in grand fashion. Come join us and discover more of the
treasures we always seem to be uncovering!
We're featuring a fine selection of 19th century furnishings
from the Empire and Victorian periods as well as Victorian and
Edwardian clothing including several christening gowns, a fabulous
Victorian whalebone corset, and several vintage furs. We have
a rare 1930s Boy Scout eagle scout sash w/39 Type A merit badges
as well as a vintage Girl Scout sash with merit badges and other
patches. In addition we’re offering an exceptional collection
of vintage movie posters from such movies as L'il Abner,
How the West Was Won, and None But the Brave and actors
such as Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Joanne Woodward, Anthony Quinn,
Doris Day and many more. In all, there will be more than 6 dozen
posters, many of which are in remarkable, fresh condition. On
top of that, we have some very nice dolls and toys including
a Simon & Halbig, a Steiff mohair monkey, and a great little
tin litho friction toy with a mohair bear. Our ephemera will
include a great collection of 1870s railroad passes, three Platinum
Age comic books, a great 1857 Sewing Needle display labeled
H. Milward & Sons Patent Helix Needles and children's books
including a very rare title The Wonderful Adventures of Mr.
Rabbit & Uncle Fox illustrated by Carton Moorepark. The
Above listing is a mere fraction of what we'll be selling.
