NEW HAMBURG, Ontario - Aug. 27, 2021 - PRLog -- Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. will hold back-to-back auctions the weekend of September 11th -12th. The Saturday, September 11th event will be a Toys & Nostalgia sale, featuring the Bryan Beatty collection. The Sunday, September 12th sale will be an Advertising & Historic Objects auction, featuring the Scott Vanner breweriana collection.

Both auctions are online-only and will have a start time of 9 am Eastern time. The Bryan Beatty collection of toys and communication-related memorabilia includes a well-rounded offering of cast iron and tin litho toys from the Victorian to the Atomic era. Mr. Beatty's collection also includes many radios, microphones and typewriters, with examples spanning the 20th century.

"The Bryan Beatty collection is a brand that will outlive this auction," predicted Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. "His guiding principle can be summed up in these three words – condition, condition and condition. Unlike most university professors, Bryan used the breaks between lectures to search for toys and nostalgia. He collected like he taught – academically."

Scott Vanner's collection of Canadian breweriana includes a large assortment of beer trays and assorted advertising from the 1890s to the 1940s. A generous offering of live steam models will also be sold, the highlight being a finely engineered 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive. Other categories in the collection that will be sold include advertising signs, bicycles and comic books.

The items in Mr. Vanner's collection are "just the way collectors like them," Mr. Miller said – "one hundred percent fresh to the market." The 7 ¼ inch gauge steam locomotive could easily end up being the top lot of the two days, as it carries a stout pre-sale estimate of $15,000-$20,000 (all prices quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars). It previously sold at Christie's in 1985.

The steam locomotive is a well presented 7 ¼ inch gauge model of the Great Western Railway 4-6-0 locomotive and tender No. 1011 ("County of Chester"). It was rebuilt and reboilered by F. West and Lee Green and comes with a brazed superheated copper boiler with fittings, including water and pressure gauges, safety, blower, twin injector, whistle, clack and blowdown valves.

Internet bidding for the 875-lot auctions will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, plus the Miller & Miller website: www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com. Bidders can tune in to the live webcast both days to watch lots close in real time. To learn more, visit www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com.
