Stephenson’s Auctioneers and Appraisers of Southampton (Greater Philadelphia), Pa., will present a Spring 2010 Antique and Decorative Arts Auction on Friday, April 16 that is so large and diverse, selling will begin at 2 p.m. Eastern, two hours earlier than usual.

Rather then picking a handful of highlights, Stephenson’s owner and auctioneer Cindy Stephenson noted the interesting and unusual collections that are included in the quarterly specialty sale.

“We have one estate of a railroad collector and somewhat of a hoarder,” said Stephenson. The collection includes telegraph senders and receivers, advertising, railroad locks, lanterns, badges and uniform buttons. There’s even a set of Deagan plate chimes for use in a railroad dining car.

Of interest to automobilia collectors is a selection of colorful, early enameled-porcelain license plates.

Many of the antiques in the sale are from the four-story Pottstown, Pa., home of a doctor, whose unmarried daughters are now also deceased. Included are several nice Pennsylvania cupboards and approximately 15 Persian carpets.

Bronzes include a 19th-century French bronze statue of a woman, sculpted by Emile Pinedo (est. $1,000-$2,000); and a French bronze and ivory figure of a child puppeteer, by Omerth (est. $800-$1,200).

The auction will include approximately 50 lots of artwork, many by listed artists. More than 100 lots of fine jewelry will also be sold.

A collection of cut glass has been consigned by a Bucks County, Pa., collector who is downsizing, said Stephenson.

Christ Home for Children, a longtime Philadelphia charity, is among several consignors of Native American artifacts, which include a Zuni bear figure fetish, Joseph Lone Wolf seed jar, a double gourd pot and two display boards (about 4 by 6 feet each) mounted with numerous items including a purse belong to a Cheyenne chief’s wife.

Among the unusual collectibles to be auctioned are a 1950s-vintage Mr. Peanut costume worn on the Atlantic City Boardwalk to promote Planters nuts, and a collection of more than 200 German tobacco trading cards from the 1930s, all bearing Nazi propaganda. The cards are in very good condition.

The April 16 auction will be conducted at Stephenson’s auction (stephensonsauction.com) facility at 1005 Industrial Blvd., Southampton, Pennsylvania. Preview inspections are scheduled for Thursday, April 15, from 1-5 pm; and Friday prior to the sale from noon till 2 pm.
