A long-time resident of Florida and a collector has put his antiques, furniture pieces and collectibles in appraisal auctions. A number of items from prominent local estates and collections are set to be sold in an online auction. The auction is scheduled for June 27, Saturday at the Ankiewicz Deer Point Lake Residence, at a suburban Panama City location in Southport.
The auction is scheduled to occur from 8 A.M. central time and is to be conducted online via Invaluable.com and LiveAuctioneers.com by the Specialists of the South Inc. who are located in Panama City. Logan Adams, spokesperson of Specialists of the South Inc. said “Earldine loved collecting old objects, did not have a specific passion, but has collected many sought after items. She has a sharp eye.”
Among the items to be sold by the appraisers through the online auction are also primitive items, ironstone pitchers, reproduction Wedgwood furniture, Mulberry china patterns, Flow Blue, and other replica furniture which has been made with a lot of attention to details and pride. Items to be auctioned also include Ankiewicz’s daughter’s Orientalia collection. The daughter is now deceased and items from this list according to appraisers range from netsukes to Satsuma and cloisonné and snuff bottles. There are also rugs of value in the sale which appraisers are organizing online.
