Big multi-estate sale planned for April 1-3 by Philip Weiss Auctions Philip Weiss Auctions will host a massive three-day multi-estate sale April 1-3 in its spacious gallery located at #1 Neil Court in Oceanside, N.Y. Hundreds of quality lots will cross the block.
Sunday, April 3, starting at 10 a.m., will be a full day, packed with quality collectibles. Ocean liner memorabilia will include Emmanuele Luzzati’s 9-piece hammered brass panel “Bacchanalia” from the bar and grill of the SS Stella Solaris (93 inches by 98 inches); a scarce first-class deck plan from the Titanic; and over 2,500 lots of ocean liner paper and post cards.
Other ocean liner items will include an R.M.S. Olympic travel vanity, several large framed ship’s portrait signs, tins, ship servers, silver pieces and material from the Bushnell collection. Nautical items will feature prints, paintings and more. Railroad and transportation lots will include lanterns, calendars, ephemera, prints and more. All that plus many stamps and coins.
Sunday will have a nice selection of estate coins. One lot expected to do well is a set of 1883 Hawaiian coins (all four values, higher grade). Stamps will include a sheet of atomic bomb stamps, signed by all members of the Enola Gay flight crew. The aviation material will include many signed pieces, by names like Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh and other flight pioneers.
On Thursday, April 21, at 2 p.m., Philip Weiss Auctions will conduct a fine estate sale. Already consigned is a phenomenal single-owner silver collection, original artwork (to include an oil on wood by Ilya Bolotowsky, signed and dated on the bottom edge), a pair of Minton pate-de-sur-pate plates by Tiffany & Co., a Xanti Schawinsky acrylic and synthetic fiber assemblage, a signed Tiffany Favrile bowl, a St. Gaudens bronze relief plaque, and a Tiffany lamp and vase.
