Auction will feature large collection of  Victorian antiques

Woody Auction will soon host the first part of a two-part auction series of a collection of Victorian antiques it refers to as “monumental.”

The collection comes from the estate of the late Ron Blessing of Kearney, NE. Part I of the auction will begin at 9:30 a.m. Sat., Oct. 29, with a preview from 1 to 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28, both at the Woody Auction facility in Douglass.
In-person, absentee, phone and online bidding will be available. Woody Auction encourages those wishing to participate to register at least a day or two in advance of the event.

“Early on, he developed a love of silverplate items, especially pickle castors and brides baskets,” a description of Blessing and his history of collecting antiques reads on the liveauctioneers.com website. “Ron’s ultimate desire was to turn his Kearney warehouse into a fully displayed showroom of the finest antiques available and to host large dinner parties surrounded by the whole Victorian atmosphere. As with many collectors, Ron’s tastes evolved with French Cameo art glass becoming another passion. Consequently, he managed to acquire some of the most sought-after pieces in the country.”

Buyers present at the Oct. 29 auction will enjoy a % buyer’s premium when paying by cash or check. Large furniture items must be picked up in Kearney or shipped via a professional shipper by Dec. 8 of this year.
