No doubt about it, our experts are extremely knowledgeable. But they also have a secret weapon — a backstage library of reference materials covering an abundance of topics from all areas of the antiques and collectibles world. In case you'd like to get your hands on some of these tools of the trade, we've created a full listing organized by category.
Highlights include one of a set of six inherited chairs, made 50 years ago by a furniture designer who also did commissions for Aristotle Onassis; a rare and extensive collection of WWII prison camp materials that posthumously established a glider pilot’s eligibility for a medal from the U.S. Department of Defense; and a drawing and lithograph by iconic American artist Grant Wood, as well as a trunk containing some of his possessions, acquired by the owner from Wood’s aunt and valued at $14,000 to $22,000.
