Saco River Auction Co. to celebrate with New Year’s Day sale
BIDDEFORD, Maine – Saco River Auction Co. will open 2012 with an antique auction that will have plenty of reminders of the passage of Old Man Time. Featured will be a Gilbert 30-day Regulator factory clock in a 49-inch walnut case, a vintage Hamilton ladies platinum and diamond wristwatch, and a Ford Motor Co. advertising wall clock with rotating light feature.
LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding for the 446-lot auction to begin New Year’s Day at 2 p.m. Eastern.
The Gilbert Regulator is in working order and has an estimate of $2,000-$3,000. The diamonds in the Hamilton ladies watch total 3.18 carats. It also has a $2,000-$3,000 estimate.
Often seen hanging on the wall at auto dealerships, the lighted wall clock that advertises Genuine Ford Parts has rotating slotted disks around the dial that gives it a flashing feature. Now a scarce collector’s item, this electric clock has a $500-$700.
Also going up for bids are an Edison cylinder phonograph with an 18-inch morning glory horn, a five-piece lot of Tiffany Studios bronze desk accessories set in the Zodiac pattern, an 1880s automaton Asian figure that smokes a pipe, a Handel table lamp with brown Handel glass shade, an oil on canvas painting of tall ships engaged in battle, a pair of George and Marth Washington portrait prints in oval gilt frames, a windup tin litho Dogpatch Band and a 21-inch Lalique Angelique crystal covered vase.
