April22_02_pics.jpgIthaca, NY—Worth Auctions, located in Dryden, NY, announces the launch of their next auction catalog.    

This catalog features a variety of collectibles, antiques and artwork. Antique newspapers and original vellum indentures dating from the 17th century will be sold among other interesting offerings. Also presented is our next session from a large private collection of antique clocks and selections from a substantial amassing of circus memorabilia.           

The clock collection centers around torsion, anniversary models and cuckoo designs. Examples date back to the 1800's and include important names such as Aaron D. Crane, Hauck, Bowler & Burdick, Anton Harder, Schlenker & Posner, John Wanamaker and others. This session is one of several we will conduct over the coming months as we bring this impressive private collection to market.   

The vintage and antique circus repository includes souvenirs, programs, posters, original photographs, signage, antique postcards, cast metal toys, ephemera and much more. Major names such as Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey figure prominently, alongside an extensive array of lesser-known troupes.       

Further lots in the catalog present a varied array of antiques and collectibles. Particularly interesting are several original vellum indentures drafted in the 1600's and bearing original signatures, seals and other historically interesting elements. Also included are an original painting by Salvatore Grippi, a sizeable stamp collection and antique newspapers dating back to the 17th century, including content on colonial America, revolutionary America, the Lincoln Assassination, slavery-related entries, the sinking of the Titanic and much more.

Complementary material will be offered in future sessions throughout the spring of 2018.
