Timepieces, Erotica and Decorative Arts

Treadway Toomey Auctions is pleased to offer items from the Estate of Candice B. Groot. This important single-owner collection spans much of the late 19th through 21st centuries and includes fine timepieces, erotica, fine taxidermy, automata and decorative arts in addition to exceptional modern and contemporary art and ceramics. The collection will be offered for sale in four auctions throughout 2016 with proceeds benefiting the Virginia A. Groot Foundation, a nonprofit arts organization. Please Note: Many items in this collection are of an erotic nature. Images in this online catalog may be inappropriate for minors and the gentle of heart. Important Note: Due to federal law restricting interstate commerce on the sale of ivory and other endangered species, lots 428 through 534 can only be sold through intrastate commerce. Only Illinois residents with a valid State ID will be allowed to participate in the following lots. Please keep in mind interstate transport is prohibited by law.
