Auction Description

The Americana Collection of Frank Gaglio by New England Auctions

Dear Friends, Colleagues and Fellow Collectors,

It is with a profound sense of joy and anticipation that we extend to all a warm welcome for the unveiling of our cherished family Americana collection. Within this group of unique objects lies not only the tangible artifacts of the past but also the intangible threads of human connection and shared experience that have woven themselves into the very fabric of our lives.

Our journey of collecting has been a family affair, ignited by chance encounters and bound by a love for history and artistry. While attending an antiques show in Hudson, Ohio, fate intervened, introducing me to my beloved wife, Kathleen Molnar. Her discerning eye and unwavering passion for antiques illuminated our path, leading us to hidden gems and a shared excitement for the next exciting find…often in basement shops like Mary O’Connor’s in Strongsville, Ohio. One such discovery was a ‘Tree of Life’ quilt….an $85 purchase that is now pictured in an iconic quilt book and would become a cherished heirloom, symbolic of Kathy’s keen intuition and unyielding spirit. Kathy was a true weekend ‘antiques warrior’! Our daughter, Ciara Nicole, honed her collecting skills at a young age, selling drawings at antiques shows to fellow dealers like Pat and Rich Garthoeffner to buy vintage teddy bears and painted baskets. At age 15 she created our logo for Barn Star Productions. Today she leads her own graphic design firm, Moonlight Media Group, LLC, preserving the legacy of bygone eras.

Transcending mere acquisition, this collection is a testament to the enduring bonds of many friendships forged during our adventures. Each object carries its own unforgettable story. My introduction to the business began with my cousin, Leo Wilensky, who sent me throughout New England to sell betty lamps and milking stools. Through Leo I was introduced to the legendary Roger and Ruth Bacon. Visiting their home was akin to stepping into the artist Grant Wood’s ‘American Gothic’ setting, but with a great deal more of the New England charm and pilgrim spirit. One memorable moment occurred when Roger donned wooden Dutch shoes and, along with Ruth and other relatives, began to dance to the clapping of hands and joyful laughter, all while humming three different tunes at the same time! His earlier training in Shakespeare was evident in this bigger-than-life character. That was the beginning of many incredible friendships to come.

As we embark on our next chapter, parting with our collection is bittersweet. We have been humbled by the privilege of stewarding these treasures and now entrusting them to the kindred spirits who share our reverence for them. To each of you who grace our sale, we extend heartfelt gratitude and the hope that these special items bring you as much joy and inspiration as they have bestowed upon us!

With warm regards,

Frank, Kathy and Ciara Gaglio, Rambo and Rocky (in Heaven!)

BIDDING INFORMATION

1) New England Auctions runs live and online auctions, at times concurrently. All purchases represent a contract of sale between the winning bidder and New England Auctions.

New England Auctions cannot be held responsible for internet issues or outages as it may affect an auction. At New England Auction's discretion, we reserve the right to not accept a bid or to withdraw an item for any reason. The buyer will be the highest bidder as acknowledged by the auctioneer, who has sole discretion. Any dispute over the auction process is decided solely by New England Auctions and will be deemed final and binding. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder, particularly regarding online bidding, to pay careful attention to the process. New England Auctions will not refund or rescind a sale in which the winning bidder claims to have won a bid mistakenly or unintentionally. If you accidentally win a lot, you are still liable for payment as we are liable to the consignor. Non-paying bidders or bidders that do not abide by these terms will not be allowed to bid at future auctions and may jeopardize their ability to participate in Live Auctioneers, Invaluable or Bidsquare auction sites. First-time bidders at our auction may be required to register with us and must present a valid license or form of ID along with a physical address that matches the bidder’s identity. Arrangements can be made to bid on your behalf as an absentee bidder or to execute phone bids. All absentee and telephone bidders are required to sign, agreeing to our terms and provide credit card information. Phone bids are offered on a first-come, first-served basis and must be arranged in advance of the sale days.

GUARANTEES

2) There are no warranties of any kind, including but not limited to representations of age, origin, condition, restoration, dimensions, authenticity, provenance, or authorship. Any condition reports, artist, authorship that are part of an item's description are the opinion only of New England Auctions and do not represent facts or guarantees that may substitute for research and inspection of items by the bidder. New England Auctions makes no guarantees that any item of a mechanical nature, ie. clocks, watches, music boxes, slot machines, wind-up toys, etc., is in working condition when it leaves our premises, regardless of whether it was working prior to the auction. All rugs are strictly sold ‘as is’ with no guarantees to age, origin or condition. There will be absolutely no refund on rugs. Fine jewelry is guaranteed only regarding gold content and authenticity of diamonds. Authenticity and grade of diamonds and all other stones are not guaranteed. New England Auctions makes every effort to describe items being auctioned accurately, however, written and oral descriptions should in no way be considered a guarantee or accurate. There are inherent imperfections in old and antique items. Any estimates listed with auction items are solely based upon an approximation of the range within which an item may sell for, as determined by New England Auctions, and in no way represents the value or selling price of those items. All items are available for your examination prior to bidding. Your bidding will signify that you have examined the items, or that you have chosen not to examine them. We encourage in-person inspection as well as questions or requests for additional information or images. New England Auctions will not be held responsible for any errors or omissions pertaining to items listed in the catalog.

Written and signed testimony in dispute must be presented within 21 consecutive days of the sale date from at least one recognized expert, agreed upon by the auctioneer, of the artist or object in question. Judgment by an expert based on images is not acceptable. Negative judgement must be absolute, not "possibly", before there is any rescinding of the sale of a disputed item. Disputed item must be received at our Branford location in the original condition that it was sold, within 30 consecutive days of the sale date. Any damage or alteration, shipping damage, cleaning, however minor, will disqualify an item for a refund. The agreement to rescind the sale is at the sole discretion of New England Auctions. If agreement is made, New England Auctions will refund the buyer an amount of the purchase price plus sales tax, if applicable.

SALES TAX

6) All sales are subject to Connecticut sales tax unless the buyer holds a valid tax exempt/resale certificate (from any state) and submits a signed and dated State of Connecticut Sales & Use Resale Form with their tax-exempt information prior to release of the purchases, even for tax exempt bidders who will be having their items shipped out of state. This form is available at newenglandauctions.com and must be updated every 12 months. We do not collect sales tax on items shipped to other states unless a particular state's sales tax nexus has been met in that state. Sales to out-of-state buyers without a resale certificate, that are picked up by the buyer's representative, will be charged Connecticut sales tax unless the representative is a licensed commercial shipper and provides a Bill of Lading with their DOT # at the time of pick up.
