Bertoia Auctions announces date change for spring Kaufman sale

VINELAND, N.J. (ACNI) – The sale date for Bertoia Auctions’ third installment of the Donald Kaufman antique toy collection has been moved back by one week. Originally scheduled to take place on April 9-10, 2010, the event featuring 900 automotive toys and an introductory selection of comic character toys from the late Mr. Kaufman’s collection will now be held April 16 and 17 at the Bertoia gallery in Vineland, New Jersey.

“We made the change to avoid a conflict with the renowned Toymania show in Paris, which draws many of the leading antique toy dealers and collectors,” said Bertoia Auctions’ owner, Jeanne Bertoia. “We didn’t want to have a situation where toy buyers with an interest in both events were inconvenienced or had to make a decision between the two.”

Sessions I and II of the Kaufman collection, held March 19-21 and Sept. 25-26 of this year, brought in $7.2 million (inclusive of 15% buyer’s premium). Bertoia’s is offering the legendary collection in a series of semiannual sales that is expected to extend into late 2010 or possibly into 2011.
