Bruneau & Co. two-session auction, Feb. 15
Bruneau & Co.’s next major auction, slated for Saturday, February 15, will be a two-session affair, with bidding available online and in the gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island. Session 1, beginning promptly at 10 am Eastern time, will feature an important single-owner collection of steam engines, cast-iron and other pre-World War II toys and other items. Session 2, starting at 12:30 pm, will feature Bruneau & Co.’s normal mix of antiques, fine art, decorative arts, silver and more, to include an outstanding collection of English, German and French Majolica; a collection of four Russian icons and a silver and gilt copper crucifix from the St. Peter’s and St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Providence, R.I. All are 19th century or earlier. “Handling the single-owner collection of steam engines and early mechanical toys in Session 1 brings me back to my days as a machinist,” remarked Kevin Bruneau, president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. “It’s certainly one of the most interesting collections we have handled in some time. I will be curious to see where the market is in 2020.” Online bidding will be offered by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com, plus the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. To bid by phone, the number is 401-533-9980. To learn more about Bruneau & Co.
