Anticipation is the watch word of the week.  The catalog is completed, everything is tagged and carefully packed up.  The crew is confirmed, as is the chef and bartending service.  We are ready to go!  I love this week as it gives us time to reflect on over two months of accumulation.  I recall house calls from Boston to Truro,  the interesting people I have met and the precious objects which have joined our November 19th Lineup.  The hard work is complete, now the real fun begins.

We have over 260 lots of everything from 19th Century Kitchen Primitives, to Antique Georgian Silver and everything in between.  Paintings are strong in this sale, my personal favorite is Lot #1, a small 19th C. Oil on Canvas of a shipwreck dated '73 (1873).  We also have dozens of "organic" lots.  These are items from Plymouth, Massachusetts and New England, from wonderful 19th Century Primitives with Southern New Hampshire provenance, to a 17th Century Deed from a Cape Cod Indian Sachem.  The details of this important lot can be found in a fantastic story in the November 13th Edition of "The Old Colony Memorial", by Emily Clark.


  For the silver magnates, over 500 Ozt of Sterling silver spanning 200 years and many famous makers awaits their bid.  In this category a beautiful 19th Century flatware set by "Dominick & Haff" is a true standout, 90 pieces of over 150 Ozt Sterling Silver.  The true show stopper has to be the pair of British Silver Tea Caddies.  Hand chased, with ram finials, WOW!

Please join us for a wonderful night out, Tuesday, November 19th at 83 Court Street, Plymouth MA.  We have a great sale with Beer, Wine and food prepared by Chef Stephen Coe of BOKX109.  Competitive bidding and opportunity await.  See you at the auction!
