Parrot lampSome of this year’s outstanding donations of antiques and collectibles include a Major League baseball autographed by Ted Williams, Eastlake marble-top table, butcher block table, three-section armoire, and a complete dining room set with carved detail that includes a china cabinet with crown glass doors. Look for many items from the President James A. Garfield family, an old Magic Chef stove, a working GE Monitor Top refrigerator, parrot lamp (pictured), pair of Bohemian glass lustres, and a Peking glass bonsai tree. There will be china, glass and silver items as well as vintage clothing, pictures, prints and oil paintings. Everything is sold without reserve. WVIZ will also be swimming in costume jewelry this year. It will be sold in the Auction Store, located at the WVIZ Idea Center in Cleveland.

Viewers can preview auction items or register to bid online or by phone by going to the WVIZ website, http://www.ideastream.org/auction. There are always bargains and great surprises, as well as the unexpected, so join the fun on April 25, 26, 27 and 28.






#1 I Miss ClevelandScott2b2 2013-04-24 21:35

I lived in the Cleveland area for over 20 years before moving here to Tucson, AZ.

I miss Cleveland from time to time, but I especially get "homesick" when I see the yearly notice of the WVIZ auction.

I watched the auction year after year. My favorite part of the experience was seeing Ralph and Terry Kovel and the antiques tables.

Terry, I wish you the best auction year ever.
