Crystal River, FL
Sale January 11,12 & 13, 2008

Professional Appraisers & Liquidators will host a massive three day estate sale on January 11,12 and 13 of antiques, fine art and collectibles from local estates originally from New York

When many retirees pack up and head to Florida for sunny retirement they often bring the treasured items they have accumulated over many years. Some soon decide to “downsize” after moving and the results can make for interesting auctions. Charlie Fudge, owner of Professional Appraisers & Liquidators in Crystal River, has been working for over six months with a number of local area estates originally from New York to assemble the inventory for a three day sale of antiques, fine arts and collectibles to be held without reserve.

The eclectic inventory will include a wide variety of Victorian period furniture and a great selection of 19th and 20th century art glass including Fenton baskets and lamps, Mary Gregory, Moser (pair of portrait vases), Carnival Glass, Heisey, Cameo Glass, Victorian bride’s baskets, Vaseline Glass and brilliant period cut glass. Included in the porcelain selection will be hand painted Limoges, Majolica, Flow Blue, RS Prussia, Nippon and a hand painted 19th century porcelain spitoon. Pottery from Weller (jardiniere and pedestal in Baldin pattern), Roseville, Hull, Van Briggle lamps and vases, four Boehm bird plaques and hundreds of Royal Doulton and Hummel figurines will cross the block along with silver from Towle (Rambling Rose service for six), Gorham (Buttercup service for eight and English Gadroon sterling service for twelve), Oneida (Statehouse sterling service for six) and a number Kirk/Steiff repousse serving pieces.

Keeping time during the sale won’t be problem with any of the dozen or so gold pocket watches, gingerbread clocks, a French dome clock, a gilded bronze French figural clock and several more timepieces being offered. Keeping the peace won’t be a problem either with a small collection of guns including an early 19th century matched pair of dueling pistols, numbered 1 and 2 and World War II German Luger in fine condition with clip and original holster along with several other antique pistols.

Art will be an important part of the sale (over 75 lots) with a nice collection of paintings and prints including prints by Maxfield Parrish, Wallace Nutting and Louis Icart, artist signed pastels by Robert Chandler and paintings by such listed artists as Toby Binder, Axel Einarsson, Lottie Watkins and Sanley Degraff plus an oil on board by one of Florida’s famous Highwaymen, R. L. Lewis.

The prime selection of Victorian furniture will include a late 19th century marble top French sideboard made of walnut, kingwood and walnut burl with ormolu mounts and beveled mirrors, a walnut and burl Renaissance Revival hall tree with umbrella racks and drip pans, several pieces of ebonized Aesthetic Movement furniture, an usual flame mahogany Rococo Revival couch and a fine late century bowfront oak china cabinet.

The sale will begin Friday January 11 at 6:00PM and will continue Saturday and Sunday at 1:00PM. Preview is Friday 10:00AM – 6:00PM and Saturday and Sunday 10:00AM – 1:00PM. The Sunday portion of the sale will be carried live online by Proxibid.

Professional Appraisers & Liquidators is located at 811 SE Highway 19, Crystal River, FL, 34429. Absentee and phone bids are welcomed. For more information contact the auction at (352) 795-2061, (800) 542-3877, email to or visit the website at

Of course, one of the reasons why this area of Ohio has remained so
persistently branded as a pocket of joblessness is
its failure to recover from the death of the steel industry and also because

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what
youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?

I've listened to this a dozen or more times and still find it delightful and sooooo original in concept. Both the content and presentation of news are drastically different from what it used to be. I want to mention a part of the Prime Law (Twelve Visions Party) which is part of Neothink.
