"The entire collection, plus items from the barn and carriage house, will be sold. We will also be offering wonderful additions from an 18th century home and other fine estates."
The sale will be packed with fine period country and formal furnishings, to include Queen Anne, Chippendale, Federal, desks, tea tables, candle stands, looking glasses, corner cupboards, dining furniture, sideboards, highboys, lowboys, Colonial objects, folk art, painted objects, early soft paste, a grouping of Asian porcelains, paintings, Oriental rugs, nautical items, clocks and pewter.
In addition to the aforementioned preview dates and times, previews will also be held on both auction days, when the doors to The Murray House will swing open at 9 am Eastern. The previews will continue throughout the sale.
One lot certain to command keen bidder attention is the Simon Willard moon phase calendar tall clock, 83 inches in height (est. $10,000-$18,000)
