King Galleries to auction rare architectural antiques March 2
ROSWELL, Ga. – On Sunday, March 2, King Galleries will liquidate the contents of Red Baron’s Private Reserve showroom including hundreds of lots of the venerable antique and architectural giant’s favorite items amassed over the past 45 years. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
Red Baron’s head, Bob Brown, is working on some new projects and wants to get away from the retail business. Red Baron’s will continue to maintain their world-famous website as an industry-leading source for commercial bars, store interiors and other architectural elements.
When Brown decided to sell, his first choice was to partner with his daughter, Susan Brown, at her King Galleries auction house, also located in Roswell, Ga. Susan Brown has been heading up King Galleries since its inception in 1998 and has worked tirelessly to grow her auction house into one of the South’s leading houses and a top source for European antiques and decorative arts.
Highlights of this special collaboration auction include a 20-foot-long Brunswick triple-arch back bar from the 1900s, a rare antique American onyx & bronze soda fountain from a New York City soda shop, a Koken barber shop oak coat rack, a 1911 Ford Model T that won a Grand National first prize winner, two Seeburg Select-o-Matic jukeboxes, and dozens more rare collectibles.
In addition, this auction features masterfully carved antique cabinetry including a rare signed Bellanger French Renaissance cabinet, a 19th-century heavy bronze chandelier with winged griffins, a Handel leaded glass floor lamp, a KPM porcelain plaque, dozens of original oil paintings and exquisite jewelry including a Franck Muller women’s 18K white gold and diamond Cintree Curvex wristwatch.
The King Galleries auction will be conducted Sunday, March 2, will begin at 10 a.m. Eastern time.
