Lifetime Pagano ‘Rustic Collection’ to Sell in November
This one-owner 1990 IROC-Z Chevrolet Camaro in like-new condition, with 9,315 original miles on the odometer, is set to sell at the auction.
BRISTOL, Conn. — An online-only auction totaling more than 500 lots of Victorian carved- and marble-top furniture, silver and gold coins, sporting goods and other category items will be held in the annual Fall Extravaganza Estates Auction, beginning at noon on Nov. 17, hosted by Tim’s Auction.
Lots expected to draw special attention will include a one-owner 1990 IROC-Z Chevrolet Camaro with 9,315 original miles on the odometer; a Bulgari 18-karat gold-and-diamond bracelet with ancient coin, a monumental Victorian breakfront attributed to John Jelliff and two Japanese World War II swords from the lifetime collection of Daniel Pagano.
The Pagano holding, dubbed the “Rustic Collection,” contains mostly sporting items. Pagano, 67, is a sporting enthusiast from Katonah, N.Y. His collection also features vintage and antique watches, to include one by Bueche Girod.
This Bulgari 18-karat gold-and-diamond bracelet, with ancient coin at the center, appraised for $11,500 in 2005.
The centerpiece of “The Rustic Collection” might very well be a fishing pole reported to have been made for baseball great Babe Ruth, with a brass tag that reads “B. Ruth.” The legendary “Bambino” reportedly took ill and couldn’t accept the pole, and it eventually found its way into Pagano’s collection.
The Rustic Collection” will also feature antique flintlock pistols, hunting knives, mounts, duck decoys, prize trophies, a crossbow, a Western saddle, a bearskin rug, a bear-mounted head and carved bear-themed benches.
The furniture piece attributed to New York master craftsman John Jelliff is a gorgeous triple three-door burl walnut Victorian breakfront with a bust of Jenny Lind at the top, in 10 pieces. It sports original keys, adjustable shelves, finials, wood and glass.
The sale is hosted by Tim’s Auctions.
Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Auctionzip.com. Items can be viewed online at the Tim’s Auction website.
