Antique Clocks, Circus, Grippi, Sybil Gibson
This catalog features a variety of collectibles, antiques and artwork. Included are original artworks from the estate of Salvatore Grippi and an original painting by Sybil Gibson. Also presented is our next session from a large private collection of antique clocks and selections from a substantial amassing of circus memorabilia. The clock collection centers around torsion, anniversary models and cuckoo designs. Examples date back to the 1800?s and include important manufacturers such as Badische, Gustav Becker, Kienzle, Kern & Sohne and others. This session is one of several we will conduct over the coming months as we bring this impressive private collection to market. The vintage and antique circus repository includes souvenirs, programs, posters, an NOS billboard, original photographs, ephemera and much more. Major names such as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey figure prominently, alongside an extensive array of lesser-known troupes and among the offerings are two whimsical original elephant paintings. Further lots in the catalog present a varied array of antiques and collectibles. Of particular interest is an original painting by eccentric artist, Sybil Gibson, done on a brown kraft paper shopping bag. Additional interesting pieces include an original Disney animation cel, a Featherweight Singer portable sewing machine, vintage and antique dolls, and other noteworthy items.
