PRLog - Feb. 3, 2012 - HATFIELD, Pa. -- (HATFIELD, Pa.) - Stephen L. Flood could never be referred to as a "low key" person. He was a man that lived life "large". He knew what he wanted out of life in the way he lived and the items he surrounded himself with in his personal and professional life. On Feb. 15-16, the Alderfer Auction Center in Hatfield, Pa., will conduct an auction highlighting many fabulous items from Mr. Flood's estate.

   Stephen Flood was born in 1943 in Wayne, Pa., and, after attending Devon Prep School, Villanova University and Wilkes College he began a varied and colorful career as a soldier, banker, financial officer and business owner. His businesses were as juxtaposed as antique military auction house (Pennsylvania) and lobster wholesaler (Maine).

   In his personal life, Mr. Flood's love of history compelled him to surround himself with items, relics and artifacts that represented periods in American and world history. These items included guns, flags, uniforms, fine antique furniture, high-quality china and porcelain, as well as fine art. The ability to obtain these high-quality items was aided by his position as CEO of the antique military auction house.

   The military collectibles will include head gear, awards and silver, needlework, firearms, edged weapons and historical documents. Decorative arts will feature bronzes and other artwork, a collection of Staffordshire transfer ware, a collection of Russian icons, stoneware, silver, mounted animals and furniture.

   This Alderfer event will offer the public a chance to purchase these items and continue the historical legacy of appreciation and preservation that Stephen Flood came to know throughout his life. The auction will begin promptly at 10 a.m. (EST). Previews will be held Monday and Tuesday, Feb. 13-14, from 9-5, and Feb. 15-16 from 8-10 a.m.

   Bidding may be done in-person, at Alderfer's gallery facility in Hatfield, online (through artfact.com/alderferauction), as well as by phone and absentee bid. For more information, log on to www.alderferauction.com.
