he was drawn to the stories of Fire Marks—these were an old form of fire insurance where if you hadn’t purchased a Fire Mark and your house caught on fire, well the fire brigade just wouldn’t show up. He collected many of these and was also a member of the Fire Marks Association. He collected Cigarette tins, Fire Mark tins, salesman samples, slot machines, old carnival and fun house items, and Desert Rose place settings, an eclectic collection indeed.
It would only reason to hold an auction in his honor. His highly intriguing, varied, and outstanding lifetime dedication to collecting is bound to hold many treasures for others. The Antiques and Estate Auctioneers will make this auction easy and convenient to attend in a spacious gallery with a large digital screen display, or live-internet bidding available straight from your own home. Do not miss this rare opportunity to participate in Cleveland’s history. The gallery is located at 44777 St. Rt. 18 in Wellington, OH 44090 and can be contacted at 440-647-4007.
