Three-Day, Semi-Annual Antique Auction
A three-day, semi-annual Antique Auction packed with over 1,800 lots of quality items, including furniture, silver, estate jewelry, fine art, lighting, glass, porcelain, majolica and more will be held May 25th, 27th and 28th by Strawser Auction Group, live in the gallery at 106 East Dutch Street in Wolcottville, Indiana, as well as online through LiveAuctioneers.com. Things will kick off Day 1, Wednesday, May 25th, beginning promptly at 3 pm Eastern time, with 627 lots of fine jewelry, bronzes, furniture, lighting, toys, art and more. “The jewelry came out of a wealthy estate in Chicago and is unequaled in terms of quality,” said Michael Strawser, the president of Strawser Auction Group and the founder of the Majolica International Society. Thursday, May 26th, will be an off-day, then the action will pick up again on Day 2, Friday, May 27th, at 3 pm Eastern, with a large selection of glassware such as Fenton, Carnival glass, art glass and other glassware, as well as ceramics, including 175 majolica and porcelain oyster plates, art pottery and other pieces. In all, nearly 650 lots will come up for bid. Day 3, on Saturday, May 28th, starting at 8 am Eastern, will contain what Mr. Strawser described as “one of the finest selections of majolica we’ve have had in some time, to include the Betsy and Rick Porter collection, which has many rare and important majolica pieces by such makers as Minton, George Jones and others.” Day 3 will feature 560 lots.
