News-Antique.com - Apr 12,2010 - Dublin, New Hampshire (April 5, 2010)--According to Yankee Magazine’s “Antiques & Collectibles” columnist, Catherine Riedel, in the January/February issue, the childhood memories of sledding makes collecting antique sleds popular. Collectors spend anywhere from $300 to several thousand for sleds in good condition. For the complete article please visit, http://www.yankeemagazine.com/issues/2010-01/home/antique-sleds.
“What makes these sleds so desired by collectors is the hand-painted imagery,” notes Garret Sheahan, generalist appraiser at Skinner, Inc. “It’s typically lively and colorful, connoting a sense of speed, grace, adventure, or beauty.”
Catherine Riedel, a regular contributor to Yankee’s “Antiques & Collectibles” column, works for Boston-based Skinner, Inc., one of the nation’s leading auction houses for antiques and fine art and the only major auction house headquartered in New England. With expertise in more than 20 collecting areas, Skinner provides a broad range of auction and appraisal services, and Skinner auctions regularly achieve world-record prices.
