In May 2005 we held an auction for Patricia and Ralph Price in Port Perry Ontario that was entitled “A Sampling From the Price Collection” and was the beginning of a scaling down of a major Ontario collection of painted country furniture, accessories and folk art. Sadly, Ralph Price passed away in 2006 and Patricia has decided to move closer to her children and grandchildren. The result of this will be a two day auction in September 2007 that will include published pieces and other desirable items that many have coveted for years. As deadlines approach, we were still unearthing treasures that have been packed way for years, Please watch this page for regular photo and copy updates.
The following is a loose order of sale for each day with some categories appearing both days.
