Shirley Temple and Steiff – ThrowBack Thursday On Estate Sales News

photo-64Slide1

Phoenix Estate Sales starts a sale today in Richmond, VA (we aren’t sure about the fact it is snowing and if they will be delayed) that features among this eclectic sale Shirley Temple dolls and Steiff animals among many antique dolls and doll accessories.

Shirley Temple, child star in Hollywood was a symbol of better things to hopefully come during the great depression of the 1930’s. The original Shirley Temple doll was composite starting in 1934-1935.

The Steiff company was started in Germany in the late 1880’s and created the teddy bear in 1902. Since then, Steiff animals (particularly early ones in good to excellent condition) have become highly collectible.

Here are two photos from the sale featuring Shirley Temple and some Steiff bears. The Owl at the top of this article is Steiff and belongs to your Estate Sales News editor.

All of us that write about estate sales, estate sale companies, estate sale listing websites, along with sellers and buyers use laptops, tablets, desktops, and other computer equipment. Most is not “vintage”.

Your editors’ first computer was a Gateway desktop (it truly took up most of the desk) that worked only in black and white and DOS. What a long way we have come to now even our smartphones. Here’s a throwback from a sale taking place starting, Saturday, January 10th in Georgetown, TX being conducted by The Gypsy Junk Lady Estate Sales that we found on EstateSales.Net.

Christmas 2 Weeks From Today – Estate Sale or Not? ThrowBack Thursday

Vintage ChristmasThis is the last weekend before Hannukah and two weekends before Christmas.  The decision whether to run estate sales at this holiday time is a tough one for estate sale companies.

The area you are located in, the retail shopping available to the community is a consideration. Another concern is how does your staff feel about working so close to the holidays. Each company must make their own decision, but a word of advice to estate liquidators, especially newer ones in the industry, ask them. A cheerful smile and a happy tone in their voice helps create sales. If they are tired or feeling remorse about not being able to share in pre-holiday family events can add frowns to faces and even make some people cranky. This time of year can be stressful for many and hopefully you have give consideration to this before accepting sales. You also want to consider the results your clients may expect.

Again it depends on what part of the country you’re in and the community as well.

Majolica – ThrowBack Thursday For Estate Sales From the 19th Century

Slide1Today Estate Sales News is throwing back to the 19th century to some beautiful earthenware pottery that we call Majolica which was first created in 1851 by Mintons Ltd. in England. It was created for the Great Exposition then and known as Palissy ware. Palissy was a tip of the hat to Bernard Palissy a 16th century potter who used naturalistic and animal motifs with bold splashes of color.

Tin glazed pottery had been made by Mintons for sometime which was opaque, white, shiny, and painted with color. This was in the Italian Renaissance maiolica which they Anglicized to majolica.

Wedgwood began manufacturing majolica 10 years after Mintons and soon numerous smaller Staffordshire potteries around Burslem and Stoke-On-Trent and specialized in green majolica wares. According to Wikipedia majolica was influenced by the design of old “Cauliflower” and “Pineapple” teapots made by Thomas Whieldon.

As time passed European potteries started making majolica and then it was started to be made in the United States in the 1880s’.

Here is the link to the complete article, makers, and more on Wikipedia.

Here are some current samples available at estate sales starting today across the country.
