1,200 lot discovery sale hides trove of 19th century New England artists

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. –  Affordable paintings, antique prints and contemporary works by listed artists are featured along with country Americana in the July 27 & 28th Skinner Discovery Auction. Skinner holds estate furniture, antiques & collectibles auctions in Massachusetts monthly at its Marlborough gallery at 274 Cedar Hill Street. These auctions attract a wide range of attendees who enjoy the monthly two-day 1,200 lot offering of American, European, and Asian furniture, decorative arts and collectibles.

Representations of maritime art in various media and New England artists compliment the 19th, 20th century offerings in Wednesday afternoon’s session, which starts at 2 p.m.. Country American furniture, stoneware, textiles, metalwork are featured on Thursday, beginning at 10 a.m., as is a collection of American brilliant period cut glass and European painted bisque figures and figure groups.

According to Vice President and Senior Appraiser, Kerry Shrives, “Skinner’s Discovery auctions offer opportunities to bid on, and buy, quality, affordable antique furniture and decorative works of art.” Shrives continued, “These sales present a chance to own items designed and crafted in New England in the 18th and 19th centuries. And, pieces of American history can’t be purchased at the store.”

While buyer’s inadvertently come across treasures in Skinner’s monthly Discovery auctions, for collectors who know exactly what they’re looking to buy, Skinner’s lot alert lets them know when items of interest are up for sale. Keywords entered on the site will turn up matching searches to the collector via email.
