Bertoia Auctions announces date change for spring Kaufman sale

VINELAND, N.J. – The sale date for Bertoia Auctions’ third installment of the Donald Kaufman antique toy collection has been moved back by one week. Originally scheduled to take place on April 9-10, the auction event featuring 900 lots of automotive toys and an introductory selection of comic character toys from the late Mr. Kaufman’s collection will now be held April 16- 17 at the Bertoia gallery in Vineland, N.J.

“We made the change to avoid a conflict with the Toymania show in Paris, which draws many of the leading antique toy dealers and collectors,” said Bertoia Auctions’ owner, Jeanne Bertoia. “We didn’t want to have a situation where toy buyers with an interest in both events were inconvenienced or had to make a decision between the two.”

Sessions I and II of the Kaufman collection, held March 19-21 and Sept. 25-26 of this year, brought in $7.2 million (inclusive of 15 percent buyer’s premium).
