Jackson’s International to offer entire inventory of high-end antique shop in no-reserve sale

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa—Jackson’s International Auctioneers of Cedar Falls, Iowa, will offer the entire inventory of Katelman Antiques of Omaha, Neb., in a one-day, on-site sale to be held Aug. 15 beginning at 10 a.m.

Katelman Antiques has been providing its clientele of private collectors and decorators with the finest in European art and antiques since 1972.

Acquiring and maintaining a quality inventory wasn’t left to chance; in 1979 founder Rick Katelman began what would eventually amount to 30 expeditions to Europe in search of the ultimate in Continental antique furniture, fine art and lighting to be imported to his Omaha headquarters.

Rick Katelman and his wife Sue developed loyal client relationships through the three and a half decades of providing the finest art and antiques available. And now, upon their retirement, as a “thank you” to those faithful clients, they have decided to offer at auction their entire remaining inventory on a no-minimum, no-reserve basis. “What better way to say thanks,” said Rick Katelman, “than to let our customers get a once-in-a-lifetime deal at an inventory liquidation auction.”

The Aug. 15 inventory clearance will feature over 300 pieces of remarkable, room-ready 19th century European and American furnishings, an outstanding selection of 19th century European elegant lighting including over 75 chandeliers, over 50 original oil paintings circa 1750-1950, a diverse offering of decorative arts, and over 100 pieces of exceptional 19th century French architectural antiques.

A special two-week on-site preview will take place beginning Aug. 1 at Katelman Antiques, 144 S. 39th Street, Omaha, Neb.

The entire auction inventory may be found online at www.jacksonsauction.com. Absentee, Internet and telephone bidding are available.
