Important Nippon Porcelain Auction
In the world of advanced collectors of Hand Painted Nippon Porcelain there are few, if any, who do not know of Fred Tenney and his spectacular collection. Born in the small town of Harrison Maine, Fred bought his first piece of Nippon for $3 at a barn sale decades ago and has been collecting ever since. Fred was active from the very beginning of the INCC and served as its president on more than one occasion. Fred’s outstanding collection of over 500 individual pieces includes important examples from a multitude of categories. Examples from Fred’s collection can be found in every book published on the subject. The consummate collector, if ever there was one, Fred’s reputation in the world of Postcard collecting is similar to that in the world of Nippon. His collection of historic and important real photo postcards is one of the most important in that field. In his 27-year professional career, Fred Tenney earned the reputation as one of the country’s most respected rehabilitation professionals earning numerous awards, recognition and accolades. Jackson’s International is pleased to present this important collection which offers a truly once in a lifetime opportunity for those, who like Fred Tenney, are passionate about Hand Painted Nippon.
