Today's Photo Montage begins and ends with the iconic photo of longtime attendees, both now deceased, Espen Christensen and Dale Butterworth, both then living in the vicinity of Portland, Maine. When the photo was taken, Espen, who appears on the right side of the photo, was over 100 years of age and Dale was in his late nineties. There is nothing quite like a photo of two men who began attending the sale when they were middle aged to accent the longevity and tradition of this classic American event.

We will be posting regular updates to the auctions, including some incredible items not yet listed in the coming weeks. We look forward to seeing you all in Nashua for great auctions and a great time.

The name of the original owner, one "W.A. Richards", is imprinted in gold leaf beneath the lip of the cup. There are some hard water stains, but the mug is otherwise excellent.

Just Added to the Auctions

jpg_file Lot 500. An extremely rare and important REMNANT OF A SIXTEENTH CENTURY SAW. This carved and dated walnut handle saw is missing some of the lower portion of the handle, but many details are contained in the remaining part, including the date, most likely of its making, "1696", a carving of a coat of arms, a guild logo and the initials "IP", most likely those of the original owner. A compilation of the substantial amount of research undertaken has been compiled and is available by clicking HERE. We are delighted to be able to offer this once in a lifetime opportunity to own what may be the one of the few remaining hand saws produced in the Sixteenth Century. From the Collection of Norm Nilsson, Franklin, Pennsylvania. (GOOD+).(3,500.00 - 7,500.00) Length: 21 Inches.
