Canadiana & Folk Art Auction, April 17
An online-only Canadiana & Folk Art auction featuring the lifetime Canadiana collection of Marty Osler will be held on Saturday, April 17th, at 9 am Eastern time, by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd., based in New Hamburg. Online bidding will be via LiveAuctioneers.com and the Miller & Miller website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. In all, 306 lots will cross the auction block. In addition to Canadiana and folk art, categories will include furniture, paintings, pottery, stoneware, tools, toys and banks, architectural and nautical. There will be no in-person event due to COVID-19, but bidders can tune in to the live webcast on auction day to watch lots close in real time. Telephone and absentee bids will be accepted. “Marty Osler is a true collector. You can see his passion for history and the human experience reflected in the objects he acquired,” said auction adviser Peter Baker, adding, “We discovered great things that haven’t seen the light of day for thirty years and many are of museum quality.” A safe-viewing preview (where all COVID-19 protocols will be in place and observed) will be held April 14th, 15th and 16th, from 1 pm-5 pm Eastern time in the Miller & Miller Auctions gallery at 59 Webster Street, New Hamburg, Ontario.
