ACCORDING TO RICH PENN, this Auction Event will offer collectors quite a wide variety of unusual opportunities, all without reserve. “This May, in Des Moines, we’re bringing collectors another first class gathering from Soda Fountain, Country Store and Petroliana collections.”
Penn added, “There’s a wonderful selection of Ice Cream items, including a superb Cushman ice cream scooter, Gas & Oil signs, excellent Coca-Cola porcelain, tin & cardboard signs, Syrup Dispensers, including a very rare Hires “Ugly Boy” urn and a complete set of the three figural Wards Crush dispensers.”
The May 2 – 4 auction also includes neon signs, early stoneware, spool cabinets, a small fleet of children’s wagons and sleds, display cases, furniture, lighting and decorative items.
Penn went on, “But, of course our friends expect all that. There’s more. We have some great Coin-Operated machines; slots, trade stimulators and arcade games, Native American pieces, Black Americana and some other very exciting surprises!” He concluded, “We have a couple very special collections this time. We’ll be selling some great pieces that have our younger collectors in mind.”
