Greetings! In the next few weeks I'll be listing more great items from a couple of private clients who collected diverse and quality items. Remember, when you invest in a good piece -- another one (or thirty) will not pop up immediately -- or be replaced on the shop shelf within minutes. PLEASE BE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH MY 'AUCTION CONDITIONS' BELOW BEFORE PARTICIPATING IN MY AUCTIONS. I've tried to avoid the listing 'diatribes', but for fair trade for all -- I do need to lay out the way I do business ahead of time. PLEASE ALSO NOTE THAT I NOW RUN 5 DAY AUCTIONS ONLY. I am using the 'Buy it Now/Make an Offer' option for several of the better pieces from this client -- her pieces are particularly interesting, and deserve a fair market value/price. DON'T HESITATE TO MAKE AN OFFER, IF YOU LOOK AT MY PAST FEW AUCTIONS YOU WILL CLEARLY SEE THAT I WILL ACCEPT REASONABLE OFFERS!
This auction is for not only a wonderful circa 1860s - 1870s GUTTA PERCHA case/frame, but for a daguerrotype photograph/picture that has an historical context.

The client I'm selling for is a Bartlett -- and she has the family tree all laid out (I think you could also find this by 'Googling' it)... read more
