Collection of James Emele

Jim Emele is a well-known dealer/collector who has been active for over 35 years. He and his wife have closed their shop in Upper Dublin, PA, downsized, and are doing selected shows throughout the year. A few months ago Jim called me and asked if I could sell the remaining property in their shop and home, and what you see in this 400 lot offering is all of that, being sold with no reserve, along with some additions from several other collections. Jim bought good things for his inventory and for his home, we are honored to bring it to you at auction. This sale features no less than 8 corner cupboards, 6 in cherry, one architectural beauty in walnut, and one in faux tiger maple paint. There are 2 cherry Dutch cupboards with 12 pane tops, and one in softwood, and another blind door stepback. Case furniture is highlighted by a pristine 2 pc walnut PA Queen Anne highboy, cherry and walnut high chests, several Chippendale, Hepplewhite, and Sheraton bureaus, punctuated with period chairs, benches, dry sinks, good hardwood and paint decorated blanket chests, chairs, mirrors, and more!! In addition, an attractive offering of oak Victiroan furniture will be sold including stack boocases, a good hall rack, and 2 large pedestal DR tables.
