FAIRFIELD, ME – NOVEMBER 7, 2014. For over 45 years, auction veterans James D. Julia, Inc. have consistently presented quality offerings of fresh-to-the-market, top shelf goods in all four of their specialty divisions. Their November toy & doll auction continues that tradition with one of their finest assemblages in recent memory. While the company is no stranger to revered collections, bidders will be treated to perhaps more options and even greater diversity than in previous years.
In addition to copious individual and small group consignments from collectors from across the United States, this exciting auction contains three large collections including two key estates.
At this writing, the Julia staff just completed negotiations with a massive collection from St. Louis of Mary Jane and the late Richard Miller, the latter a wealthy banker whose collection of advertising signs, posters and display items contains many extremely rare examples. In fact, the truck has just returned and the phenomenal collection includes large scale early movie posters, lithographed paper signs for soda, tobacco, early medicinal products, etc., syrup dispensers, trays, and much more including rare and collectable toys. If high quality advertising that boasts strong condition is your passion, you won’t want to miss this auction.
