Mantiques! Auction, September 14th
A 1950s double-sided, five-foot diameter Oldsmobile dealer sign, a fully restored 1942 Wurlitzer Art Deco-inspired “Victory” jukebox and an early 20th century Burry-patented stock ticker machine are just a few top lots in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.’s next Mantiques! auction, planned for September 14th. It will be Miller & Miller’s second Mantiques! auction. The first one, held nearly a year ago to the day, on Sept. 15, 2018, was a rousing success, as men, and the women who love them, turned out in full force, in person and online. It was a one-stop shop for folks looking to equip their man caves in style and fashion. The top lot was a 1950 Plymouth woody station wagon (CA$35,400). This year’s auction will be more of same. The Saturday event will be held online and in Miller & Miller’s gallery at 59 Webster Street in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada. The headliner is the lifetime collection of the late Ivan Hamilton. In all, just under 600 lots of manly memorabilia will come up for bid. Categories will include advertising, signs, automobilia, petroliana (including gas pumps, air meters and ephemera), coin-ops, militaria, railroad collectibles, aviation and sports memorabilia. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Miller & Miller Live and HiBid.com. To learn more, visit www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com.
