The Spring Antique Estate Auction will kick off at 10 am Central time and features lifelong collections from three of the finest estate homes across the South. Rare examples of glassware, porcelains, cars, Persian rugs, furniture, early lighting, collectibles, original works of art and hundreds of hard-to-find items will cross the auction block – around 500 lots in all. "This could very well be our finest sale of the last fifteen years," said Dwight Stevens of Stevens Auction Co.
With a pre-sale estimate of $35,000-$50,000, the 1965 yellow GTO could easily end up being the top lot of the auction, but it isn't the only tantalizing car up for bid. A couple others include:
The museum-worthy, Renaissance Revival double carved putti on carved pedestals, designed and carved by a true master in the mid-19th century, overall 74 inches tall, have an estimate of $20,000-$35,000. The .44 caliber US Colt single-action army pistol, Sept. 19, 1871/1872, Jan 1875, has an estimate of $10,000-$25,000 (book value is $60,000).
The historical piano made by Alois Kern around 1870 is a Verdienst Medaille edition piano, presenting a pair of Commemorative Medals of the two having attended. It was presented and shown at The Vienna 1873 and Paris 1878 World's Fairs (est. $10,000-$25,000)
