Ohio auction to clear out several buildings full of antiques

CARROLLTON, Ohio – Garner Auctioneers LLC will conduct a two-day auction with multiple sale rings at the Robert W. Lozier farm May 27-28. Lozier amassed diverse collections with thousands of items over his lifetime. The sale will be held on-site at 5064 Kensington Road, Carrollton, Ohio, and will begin at 9 a.m.

Lozier was an avid collector of horse drawn carriages, country primitives and antiques. He was a farm equipment dealer for 60 years, which took him from Iowa and Wisconsin to Alabama and Georgia, as well as the East Coast. During these equipment-buying trips, Lozier would visit every antiques establishment he could along the way. He hauled his purchases home to his farm and ultimately filled his huge two-story barn, as well as seven garages and sheds.

Garner Auctioneers plans on running two and three auction rings each day of the sale in hopes of keeping the sale of two days. A third auction date may need to be added to clear out this enormous estate.

Just a few of the featured items are: Two Conestoga wagons (one from the 1700s); a museum-quality Prairie Schooner wagon (1700s) in original condition; an outstanding horse-drawn hearse; four farm box wagons, including a John Deere; single and two-seat restored Albany sleighs; Civil War-era McAllen saddles and several horse-drawn implements and carriages. Obscure items such as horse and goat treadmills and a wall plaster machine that mixes water, hog hair, plaster together will also be sold.

Lozier collected thousands of antique wrenches, which he displayed on boards. He also collected hundreds of arrowheads, nearly 200 antique dolls and baby buggies, as well as Keen Kutter and Winchester items.

Other desirable collectibles to be sold include old advertising tin signs, circus posters, barn lanterns, carriage lamps, wooden washing machines, wooden advertising boxes, sleigh bells, lightning rods, cracker barrels, walking plows, corn shellers, a large Winchester flashlight collection and much more. All of Lozier’s diverse collections except his guns will be sold at auction May 27-28; his gun collection will be sold at a later date. A 10 percent administrative fee is in effect for this sale.
