Online Summer Antiquities Discovery Sale, June 27th
A lovely Moche portrait vessel made between 100 BC and 500 AD, a Late Period Ptolemaic Egyptian bronze sarcophagus of a lizard, and a gorgeous Cypriot alabaster dish from the 4th or 5th century BC are a few expected top lots in Ancient Resource Auctions’ online-only Auction #85, a Summer Antiquities Discovery Sale slated for Saturday, June 27th. “Our Summer Discovery Sale will feature a wonderful selection of authentic, museum quality and well-provenanced items from various cultures, as well as other ethnographic and antique items starting at great values,” said Gabriel Vandervort of Ancient Resource Auctions. “Also sold will be an array of antique and ancient-style reproduction pieces.” The auction is up and online now for pre-bidding. It will go live on auction day, July 27th at 9 am Pacific time and will continue throughout the day. Up for bid are around 325 lots of authentic Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Near Eastern, Holy Land, Byzantine, Asian and Pre-Columbian antiquities, plus fine examples of ethnographic art – something for every level of collector. All lots may be viewed and bid on now, via Ancient Resource Auctions’ bidding platform, at bid.AncientResourceAuctions.com, and on its bidding apps for both Android and Apple devices. Bids can also be placed on Invaluable.com and LiveAuctioneers.com. A link to LiveAuctioneers is at https://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/170624_auction-85-summer-antiquities-discovery-sale/. In addition to online bidding, phone and absentee bids will be accepted.
