CLEVELAND – Author and antiques expert Terry Kovel will be auctioning antiques and collectibles to help raise funds for public television in Cleveland, and Kovels.com will link to streaming “Auction Action.” The WVIZ/PBS Golden Anniversary Auction is an exciting live television event, starting Thursday, April 20, continuing through Sunday, April 23.

Kovel, a longtime supporter of WVIZ, will be auctioning antiques and collectibles on air and online at the “X Table” on Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

Viewers can enjoy the thrill of live bidding—online or by phone—on thousands of items, everything from antiques and collectibles to toys, wine, restaurant and grocery gift certificates, tickets to theater, sporting events, trips and priceless special events.

Antiques lovers will have lots to bid on. There will be a lot of antique glass—a collection of pressed glass lamps, art glass cruets, many bottles and period paperweights; lots of art pottery, including Roseville and Gouda; Holt-Howard melon bowls; silver; full sets of 20th century dishes, including sets by Minton and Wedgwood; and advertising art that includes signs, tins and Vienna Art plates. Find a collection of 18th century plates from England and a set of hammered Los Castillo silver tumblers from Mexico.

Viewers can preview auction items and register to bid online or by phone (866-393-2525) by going to the WVIZ website, Ideastream.org/auction.
