Original oil paintings by Canadian artist Maud Lewis (1901-1970), marvelous bronze creations by Romanian sculptor Demetre Chiparus (1886-1947), and a group of cold-painted “naughty bronzes” by Austrian artist Franz Xaver Bergman (1861-1935) are just a few of the expected highlights in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.’s online-only Canadiana & Decorative Arts auction scheduled for Saturday, May 14th, at 9 am Eastern time. The auction is an exciting offering of fresh-to-the-market Canadiana antiques, highlighted by folk art and decorative art from the late 19th century through to the 1970s, featuring selections from the Alan Emerson collection. “The Alan Emerson collection ranges from Canadiana to folk art to Pairpoint lamps,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “The quality, authenticity and variety make for a riveting sale.” In all, 407 total lots will come up for bid. The Canadiana category features stoneware and pottery, fruit jars, furniture, oil lamps, trade signs, quilts and folk art. “This sale contains some important folk art,” Mr. Miller said. “The rare Maud Lewis Black Truck painting was traded to its second owners in the 1970s for some grilled cheese sandwiches, and could set a record. Sold separately are three letters from Maud to John H. Kinnear, the artist she gifted it to in 1967.” Black Truck is expected to bring $30,000-$35,000 (in Canadian dollars). Internet bidding will be via the Miller & Miller website (www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com), as well as the popular online bidding platform LiveAuctioneers.com. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted. The major categories include advertising signs, advertising tins, soda advertising, breweriana, petroliana (gas station collectibles), toys, clocks, general store and tools. While this is an Internet-only auction, with no in-person event to attend, bidders can tune in to the live webcast on Saturday, May 14th, to watch the lots close in real time.
