Publisher’s Message: Moving Right Along

Normally, February might not be in focus yet; however, we moved the annual “Show Focus” section from January to allow show organizers a little more time to gather information about the availability of venues, the ability of dealers to travel, and the mood of the antiquing public as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.

Fakes I’ve Known

Since many of us can’t or shouldn’t go “antiquing” like we did, I’m going to tell you about more fakes and reworked pieces of antique items I’ve seen in the past.  Some of these stories are old, but the problems still are around us.  When you again can go...

October 31, 1632: The baptism of master artist Johannes Vermeer. He produced masterpieces, but relatively few total paintings over his lifetime. Vermeer’s A Young Woman Seated at the Virginal (a keyboard instrument) auctioned for $30,140,259 at Sotheby’s in 2013 (news.artnet.com, 8/19/13). For many years, it was doubted that Vermeer was the painter of it, but after a decade of research, it was determined to be his work. ... See MoreSee Less

October 26, 1881: Wyatt, Virgil and Morgan Earp and Doc Holliday rendezvoused with Ike and Billy Clanton, Billy Claiborne and Tom and Frank McLaury at the O.K. Corral—well, close by—for the most famous gunfight in history. The Earps went to disarm the Clanton gang, but when the smoke cleared, Billy Clanton and Tom and Frank were dead. Virgil, Morgan and Doc were wounded. A borrowed 10-gauge shotgun Wyatt used to shoot “Curly Bill” Brocius who was in the party that killed Morgan Earp was auctioned for $375,000 at Heritage Auctions in February 2020. Two months after Morgan was wounded at the famous shoot-out, Ike Clanton (who had run from the showdown) and a group of men fired through the window in and door and killed Morgan while he was playing billiards. Wyatt was also wounded in the back. When the law did not give him justice, Wyatt deputized men and hunted down and killed some of the ambushers. (Others were in jail for other offenses.) Ike Clanton was killed six years later while being arrested for cattle rustling and going for his rifle.A Colt .45-caliber revolver owned by Wyatt Earp sold for $225,000 at J. Levine Auction in 2014. ... See MoreSee Less

October 21, 1956: Carrie Fisher, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, was born. She will always be remembered as Princess Leia, and her Slave Leia costume worn in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi will not be forgotten. It brought $96,000 at Profiles in History in 2015. Leia’s little protector R2D2 stood very tall at Profiles in History in 2017 when it rolled to $2.76 million, the most paid for a Star Wars® collectible. It was used in the first three films (cnbc.com, 6/29/17). ... See MoreSee Less
