News-Antique.com - Aug 31,2016 - IOLA, Wis. — There is a lot of nostalgia associated with vintage radios, and just as much scientific and technological appeal, and collecting fascination. This is expressed and explored in the cover story of this issue titled, “Tuning In To Retro Radios.”
In addition, the ‘In The News’ sections include stories about NASA flight plans sold at auction, legislative proposals aimed at strengthening laws protecting Native American artifacts, locks of Marilyn Monroe’s hair coming to auction, a dispute over sale of a bag used by the Apollo 11 team to collect lunar samples, recent sale of one of America’s longest operating general stores, court-ordered restitution to be paid by a man who removed ancient Native American artifacts from an archaeological site, an Indiana comic shop offering scholarship dollars to students, a new exhibition showcasing transferware in San Francisco, and a Greek Revival antebellum mansion (with a church on the property) in Mississippi up for grabs.
In the columns, Wayne Jordan (Behind the Gavel) discusses relevancy in his latest column. Remaining relevant in business, in an ever-changing world, is not only important – it’s critical for future operation. Meanwhile, Furniture Detective Fred Taylor provides a short history lesson on the evolution of the famous Heywood-Wakefield furniture company, prompted by a reader’s inquiry about a teacart.
Among the special features in this edition, you’ll find a story out of Iowa about a businessman and his long-time fascination with collecting pharmaceutical bottles. It’s an interest that has its roots in bottle digging road trips with his father. Another fascinating feature is an article by Ken Hall about wine collecting. There are a few people who would say they collect wine bottles too, empty ones, after they’ve enjoyed the wonderful fermented grape juice inside. However, the market for collecting fine wine continues to expand, both in number of auction houses hosting fine wine auctions and the number of people looking to amass a collection.
Plus, this issue includes a host of auction and show previews, auction highlights, more columns, a robust calendar of events, and advertisement from national auction houses, show promoters, shops and antiques and collectibles dealers from around the country.
