Antique Appraisals with Steve Wesely of Cresent Auctioneering, were held on Tuesday afternoon, September 15th. Being such a pleasant afternoon, we were out on the patio. Twelve individuals participated in this event.
The “First Star of the Show” was a eight inch Sentinal Portable TV set from 1948. It had some condition issues, like its lifting strap was missing, along with many of its internal tubes. However, the picture tube was present. It was the size of a mid sized suitcase. It was covered with a leather look vinyl covering. Estimated value in this condition was $75-150. If put in working condition $500 and up.
The “Second Star of the Show” was a toy Pan Am, propeller air plane. This item was circa 1955. It had almost all of its original parts. The propellers had been replaced, but it had its original wooden wheels. This item was approximately 18 inches long and had a wing span of approximately the same distance. Estimated value of $150-250.
A Brown and Bigalow catalog from 1921 was shown. It had a full month pad, and had a picture of a very attractive Native American girl on it. It was advertising a pharmacy in Duluth. Had just been picked up for $1 at a clearance sale at the Carlton County Fair. Estimated value $25-40. This item was in almost mint condition.
A “Quick Loader” was shown…Presenter wasn’t quite sure what it would have loaded. One of our on-lookers, a pharmacist, in his former life, indicated that it would have been used to fill capsules back many years ago. This item thought to be circa 1900. Estimated value $18-22.
