SPECTACULAR 35TH ANNIVERSARY ANTIQUE AUCTION
Flying Pig AuctionsTOP RATED
YES 35 YEARS! (First Auction - August 1980)... I know my Dad who cofounded Stantons and passed away this January, would be proud of this one! It's an old fashioned honest to goodness loaded to the gills Country Auction! The late Stuart Magdefrau also passed this year and his unreserved collection forms the nucleus of this one... 30 years ago we would see collections like this (hardly any anymore)... Stacks of pantry boxes in orig paint & or patina; Cobalt dec stoneware in profusion; The best baskets; Painted furniture in every form; Tole, treen, ephemera & much more... We're honored that the Magdefrau family chose us to begin the process of recycling Stuart's collection... Also, wonderful estates specifically set aside for this 35th Anniversary Auction from the MA North Shore (Salem, Swampscott & Newburyport); Spectacular (paralleling Magdefrau) unreserved country collection from Agawam, MA plus local homes incl Hampden & Longmeadow, MA & just over the line into CT (Somers, Ellington & Stafford Springs) all contributed in making this an Auction NO ONE should miss. Important Formal Period Furniture & Fine Art too; We hope to see ALL our old friends out for this celebration! Everyone who registers for a bidding number will be fed free all day long... Coffee & donuts in the morning; Hamburgs & Hot Dogs & beverages all afternoon long! Spend the Day! Well over 500 lots... This one will be FUN!!!
