Collections and Ephemera Online Auction, April 25th
Neue Auctions’ online-only auction of collections and ephemera on Saturday, April 25th, will be packed with 340 lots of books, library furnishings, Natural History and ornithological (bird-related) prints, works on paper, assorted estate goods and a single-owner collection of collectible knives. There will be no live bidding and the start time is 9 am Eastern. “In this strange and grim time of COVID-19, we need to reach for and retain the parts of our former life wherever we can,” said Cynthia Maciejewski of Neue Auctions. “Luckily, we still have online auctions, and the trade in ﬁne and rare and interesting goods can continue. We’re doing our best to manage selling and shipping to customers as well as serving our consignors.” Maciejewski said the April sale is bigger than originally planned. “We put everything scheduled for the May auction into the April sale just to be safe, because the future is so uncertain,” she commented. “Our tagline – ‘Auctions Evolved’ – is certainly coming true as we recreate our business model to continue working while social distancing. We’re living in a different world.” Internet bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Bidsquare.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. Virtual gallery previews will be held via the Neue Auctions website, at www.neueauctions.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted.
