Items from the estate of Elfriede and Martin Miller of North Dakota and a private collection out of New Jersey, plus a fine assortment of other quality antiques – over 300 lots in all – will come up for bid in an Antique Auction slated for Saturday, April 22nd, beginning at 9:30 am Central time by Woody Auction, online and live in the Douglass, Kansas auction hall at 130 East Third Street. “An auction of so much hand-painted quality is a rare opportunity, but that’s exactly what is presented in this auction,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction. “Limoges and Royal Bonn are two categories that are strongly featured in this auction, as well as other fine makers such as Muller Frères, Royal Bonn, Wave Crest, Lladro, La Verre Francois and Moser. All lots are being offered without reserves.” The April 22nd auction will be preceded by an online-only auction on Friday, April 21st, beginning at 8 am Central time. The traditional in-person auction, with online bidding available, will be held the following day. “We guarantee that in both events no one will be disappointed,” Mr. Woody said, adding “there will be no buyer’s premium for those in attendance on April 22nd who pay with cash or check.” A live preview will be held on Friday, April 21st, at the Woody Auction hall in Douglass from 1-5 pm Central time. Internet bidding is available at www.liveauctioneers.com/woody-auction-llc. Be sure to register at least 48 hours in advance of sale. Absentee bids will be accepted with a written statement indicating the amount of the bid. The deadline is 12 noon, Thursday, April 20. All absentee bids will be charged a Buyer’s Premium of 15 percent of the selling price plus shipping (the BP is 10 percent when paying by cash or check). For your convenience, you can fax your absentee bid to 316-746-2145; or e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone bidding is available for lots with a low estimate of $500 or greater (low estimates are found on LiveAuctioneers.com). Email your phone bid list to email@example.com by noon on April 19th; include your name, full address, a primary phone number, and a backup/secondary phone number.
