Early Bird Estate Sales is super excited to let all you treasure hunters get in on the treasure TROVE that awaits you at this special event! Take the time to scroll through the many pictures, you will see what we mean. You will not want to miss the fun at this home that contains a lifetime collection from a couple who shared a love of adventure and who both were blessed with a keen set of eyes for those unique pieces of history. From primitive to positively delightful - this Shalimar home literally has a surprise in every square foot of the home. The charming and unique home is also for sale! We asked our client to share some history about the remarkable contents of the home and this was her delightful response:
"Mom and Dad met and married in Panama the Canal Zone during WWII. She had moved there at 6 when her Dad got a job on the locks as a master electrician. Most of the Royal Daulton Toby jugs and figures were bought at the commissary down there from the 30's and 40's. The two portraits with gold frames were done by an artist in Germany and they are of my grandmother
and grandfather from photos. Pop Pop is probably 6-7 and Gramma is 15. Mom and Dad had a 35 year career in the Air Force. One assignment was Germany during the late 40's early 50's when Dad flew the Berlin airlift. There are some watercolors of the German "zuchspitz" ( like the alps) done by Herr Kefferlein. They were also stationed in Spain for 4 years from 60-64. So there will be things bought over there. There are a couple of framed pictures that are posters from the Prado. They had a process at the time where an artist Gessoed over then to make them look like oil. Framed there as well. The carved heads are basque. They retired 43 years ago in Shalimar. Mom and dad loved to go antiquing. Dad would usually refinish old pieces. He collected old tools. Mom collected everything from antiques to flea markets to craft fairs. The copper is from Germany, Indiana and Alabama and then she stopped buying it. The silver tea service was from my great grandmother in Pennsylvania where my grandmother was born and raised so it should be about mid 1800's. Not English but none the less Americana. Lamps were converted pieces that mom bought and had electrified by my grandfather from the 50's. The wooden cookie molds are old."
Can't wait to see you at our sale. Setup was 3103.
