Featuring, The Bob & Delores McCash Collection Bob and Delores were collectors before the era of price guides or collector books. They purchased quality, often unusual antiques while traveling around to antique stores and auctions in the 1950's to the 1970's. Delores kept meticulous notes on each of their acquisitions, after the purchase, she would research, inventory, and tag each piece.
