Woody Auction LLC, based out of Douglass, will once again meet bidders in cyberspace when it hosts its Pickard and Hand-Painted Porcelain online auction on Oct. 9.
The pieces up for bids have been chosen from the collection of Hosea and the late Lily Harkness and include vases, bowls, platters, and pitchers.
Pickard China was founded in 1894 in Wisconsin by businessman Wilder Austin Pickard; the business moved to Chicago in 1897 and specialized in hand-decorated tea sets. Today, Pickard Inc. continues to operate as a family-owned business, with many older pieces up for auction being valued at several hundred dollars apiece.
