Past Sales / Archive
Our Past Sales Archive Pages contain examples of some of the most
interesting and important pieces we have sold since we introduced this
webpage over 20 years ago.
It represents a select cross-section reflecting the level
/ caliber and types of
antiques that we are seeking to buy. If you
have similar antiques and collectibles you want to sell please contact
A few notes on the past sale prices that have been removed.
Some of the past sale result prices found in the past
sales archives are going on 20 years
old and may not be relevant in today's market. Many of
the specific antiques & collectibles that we deal in have fallen in value.
In a few instances values have risen. If you find the thing you
have and there is no price listed with the ad, you can try asking what I think.
How I respond will depend on how you ask.
Prices for individual pieces, as well as
broad categories fluctuate over time, and contrary to popular
belief it is not always
up. In fact many specific sub categories within a given
category are currently selling for half or less of what they use
to in the hey-day. The list is long, from
toasters and eggbeaters, to certain antique tools, pencil
sharpeners, sewing machines, surveying instruments and more. The reasons for the
drops in value are varied and complex. It is not just
because of the internet, or eBay, or the economy. It is all those reasons
and others combined.
Use the values you see with caution and seek
confirmation elsewhere. Double Check. I will not be responsible for any perceived
or real loss you may incur using the information found on
this website. If you sell that thing you were looking up for far
more than you thought it was worth because of what you find here, and feel grateful, send my
