You’ll never see another sale like this. This estate took a lifetime to amass this collection - traveling in remote ethnographical hotspots from around the world. And…he collected them in person - in the jungles, amongst the tribes he spent time with. This is commonly known as field-collected, as opposed to items made for the tourist trade. So come journey through this sale. Very exciting. Very eclectic.
There is an epic number of Museum-worthy artworks, objects, oddities - all for sale in just a few short days. And…not to be outdone... an impressive collection of very luxe furniture, fine jewelry, an enormous crystal and glass collection, unusual plants, planters, garden decor, tools - all to be included in this impressive sale.
To be upfront… we have agreed to reasonable reserves on some of the rare ethnographic items and artwork due to their scarcity and difficulty collecting them. All the rest is fair game. We’ve also added one small staff member’s estate. Miss you Beryl. There is a preview the day before for the extended family and email subscribers. Items pictured may be removed from the sale by the estate beforehand or during the estate/family preview.
PLEASE NOTE: There is nice parking on the side streets with a 1/2-block walk, or you can choose to park in the field behind the home. Just watch the weather report - could be a bit muddy and/or chigger-y. Only one lane of cars can go in and out of the field parking, so apply your patience in appropriate doses.
