Golden Gavel’s recent auction of the contents of Greystone Farm, which included the estate of Emerson Davis, one of the original founding families of Stafford, was much like peeling back layers of time, with most every period of collecting uncovered.
The auction attracted interest from around the country and many emails from abroad, according to auctioneer Ralph Labozzo. “We were very pleased to have been selected to auction such a fine and extensive estate,” he said.
Smalls included early pressed and carnival glass (ranging from $44 to $385); a Heisey punch bowl with cups for $220; and a Southbend fishing lure with original box, $1,265.
Prices reflect a ten percent buyer’s premium.
