51 Atlantic Highway, Thomaston
Now through Thursday, September 12, Thomaston Place Auction Galleries presents “Vintage Accents”, an online only auction offering a diversity of decorative pieces sourced from Maine estates that can add the perfect design punctuation to any home or collection – and all items with modest opening bids. This sale is a continuation of the recent “Maine and Beyond” feature auction, with many items originating from the same consignor collections. It is being conducted simultaneously on three online auction sites: Thomaston Live, LiveAuctioneers, and Invaluable.
This 462-lot sale includes an incredibly diverse selection of artwork (many pieces by Maine artists), early automotive collectibles, fine furniture, folk art, lighting, art glass & porcelain, marine items, silver, contemporary & antiquarian prints, Asian items, carpets, and many great decorative accents.
Highlighted items include: artwork by Waldo Peirce, Alan Magee, Jean Hans Arp, Montague Dawson, Eric Hopkins, James Rivington Pyne and many others; 1920s Michelin man items; an Aesthetic period bamboo etagere; an Edwardian picnic set; a large carved Meerschaum pipe collection; a pair of Dresden porcelain pug dog figures, and a set of Luna Garcia pottery plates.
Items to be sold can be viewed online now at any of the three auction websites. Participants can register and place pre-auction (or absentee) bids from now to the start of the live auction. When the live auction begins, at 10:00 EST on September 12, registered participants may bid live online as each item comes up for sale.
