Edmund Wattis Dumke and Carol Dean Browning Dumke were descendants of two notable 20th century families in the Western United States. They were both generous philanthropists, horse enthusiasts and art collectors.
Carol's father, Val Browning, was an enthusiastic collector of art, jewelry, decorative arts and Old Master paintings.

The collection up for bid includes items from Val Browning's estate not donated to the museum, plus other acquired items purchased by Ed and Carol over a lifetime of collecting art. Most were displayed in Ed and Carol's long-term home in Sun Valley.
Important silver pieces include a pair of Regency sterling covered vegetable dishes (est. $8,000-$12,000);
Also in the collection are works in glass and ceramics, including a Gabriel Argy-Rousseau pate-de-verre vase (est. $6,000-$8,000);
Fine art offerings range from two oils on canvas by George Delfgaauw, titled Barges on a Canal (est. $800-$1,200)
