Collection of Lester and Barbara Breininger

Pook & Pook, Inc. will sell the collection of Lester and Barbara Breininger of Robesonia, Pennsylvania on November 11 and 12, 2011. The Breininger?s have been vibrant and active members of their Berks County community since 1960. As ninth generation Pennsylvania Germans, they spent the greater part of their lives promoting the accomplishments of other Pennsylvania Germans and their decorative arts. As avid collectors and researchers, their scholarship was evidenced in the knowledge that Lester would impart to friends and acquaintances. Lester was also well known for his redware reproductions and teaching groups of young student potters. Over many years, the Breiningers amassed a huge collection of local pottery, paintings, textiles, fraktur and pewter. The 940 lot sale is a rich variety of these pieces.
