News-Antique.com - Aug 17,2011 - Rosemary McKittrick is a storyteller. She tracks auctions worldwide and brings you stories behind things that sell. Her stories are about people who’ve inspired, entertained, led or scorned their way through history and the objects that touched their lives.
Stories are an important link to the past.
It could be Harry Houdini, Bob Dylan, Truman Capote, Amelia Earhart, Babe Ruth or William Randolph Hearst. Rosemary tells their stories through the handcuffs they've owned, books they’ve written, songs they’ve sung, planes they've flown, empires they’ve built and homeruns they’ve hit—all of which sold on the block.
Their stories open a window to the past. Rosemary takes a deeper cut on their lives in her weekly column.
You'll find a collection of 850+ archived columns on this site that appeared in publications worldwide over the last 22 years.
When the bidding stops and the hammer falls, the value of an item is set. The buyer, not the seller, sets the price. This simple distinction cuts through all the chitchat about what art, antiques and collectibles are really worth.
If you're looking for simple, straightforward talk and actual prices you've come to the right place.
