Shaker items will headline Meissner's April 28 on-site estate sale in New Lebanon, N.Y. The estate of the late Albert “Al” Cassavant will be sold at an on-site auction on Saturday, April 28, at 11 a.m. The auction will be held by Meissner's Auction Service in New Lebanon, N.Y.
In March 1980, Al retired from General Electric, as manager of Naval Ordnance. It was around that time he and Ruth purchased their four-bedroom Colonial-era home. They moved Cottage Antiques into the home and re-named it Tryon House Antiques. They continued to operate the business there for 20 years. It was only forced to shut down due to Al’s poor health.
A preview will be held on auction day, from 9 a.m. until the first gavel comes down at 11 a.m. Everything will be sold as-is, where-is, and all sales are final (no returns allowed). Terms are cash, check and Visa and Master Cards. All purchases will be subject to a 14 percent buyer’s premium (2 percent discount for cash or check). Refreshments will be served. Delivery available.
