Yardely Antiques’ next online auction will be ending this month: Day 1 (historical ephemera and books) will end Sunday March 17th starting at 4 PM and Day 2 (estate jewelry, collectibles, clocks, lamps, Art and more) will end Monday March 18th starting at 10 AM. Please see https://www.invaluable.com/auction-house/yardley-antiques-9zlkpgjbd9 .
Day 1 of my auctions will always include: early aviation ephemera and other historically significant books, brochures, postcards, posters, manuals and more. Other collectible field featured will me early automobiles, space related items, travel books and antique photography.
Day 2 of my auctions will include: estate and vintage (mostly costume, some silver and gold) jewelry and watches, original drawings, paintings, sculpture and other Art, vintage and antique lamps and clocks (including grandfather, wall and even a signed Tiffany mantle clock).
Overall periods will range from mid-late 1800’s, via Art Nouveau and Art Deco to Mid Century Modern and some more vintage pieces.
All packing and shipping of jewelry, small collectibles (glassware, porcelain and ephemera) will be handled in-house. All other items, such as clocks, lamps, furniture and large, valuable and/or fragile items will be handled by my local shipping store and shipped to you via USPS or FedEx (whichever is least expensive). I can also recommend white-glove shipping by David Vannoy (ask for his contact info).
- All shipped items valued over $100 and not made of glass (which is not insurable) will be insured against loss or damage.
- Returns will not be accepted, all items are sold as-is. I describe my items in detail and the photos will show any damage. Most of my items sold are antique and will have some expected wear or loss, due to age and use. Please ask questions before bidding.
Because antique furniture, collectibles, lamps and other items were most often unsigned (or they have lost their labels over time) it can be difficult, if not impossible, to accurately determine the exact age, maker or provenance of each piece.
However, I always do my best to describe every piece to the best of my knowledge and experience and I have been in the antique business for many years.
