NEW HAMBURG, Ontario - March 3, 2021 - PRLog -- A Wurlitzer Model 147 military band organ from 1916, rare and beautiful 18th century Dutch clocks and gorgeous painted pine furniture pieces made in Ontario, Canada in the mid-19th century are a few expected top lots in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.'s online-only Music Machines, Clocks & Canadiana auction slated for Saturday, March 20.

The auction, starting promptly at 9 am Eastern time, features four outstanding collections: the Cathy and Gerry Koolen collection of music machines and clocks; the Robert Russell clock collection, the John Wine collection of Canadian furniture and the Ben Lennox collection of fresh-to-market and seldom-seen items ranging from early historic trade signs to rare seltzers.

"We are pleased to be offering Cathy and Gerry Koolen's outstanding collection of Dutch clocks, tower clocks and music machines," said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. "The only thing more honest than their collection is them. Also, the Robert Russell collection of Pequegnat clocks tells the rags to riches story of a Canadian company that truly defied all odds."

The auction is loaded with 645 lots. In addition to clocks, Canadiana and music machines, the catalog also boasts pottery and stoneware, folk art, advertising signs, toys, breweriana and more. Online bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and the Miller & Miller Auctions website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

The Wurlitzer Model 147 military band organ is very rare and is housed in a beautiful oak case measuring 87 inches tall by 84 inches wide. It was originally powered by a steam engine that powered the carousel for which it was purchased. The functioning band organ, with 46 notes, two stops and an assortment of Style 150 music rolls, should change hands for $6,000-$9,000.

All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.

A pair of rare Dutch clocks also carry estimates of $6,000-$9,000. One is a wall clock, very rare, made in the Zaanse region of Holland (near Amsterdam) between 1690-1725 and previously sold at Sotheby's. The other one is an animated tall case clock, made in Amsterdam in 1770, having animated movement with windmills and a man fishing, the clock and dial both nicely restored.
