Treasured Collectibles in a Pile of Stuff… Las Vegas, Art Restoration Testimonial

Busted up Early American Art Busted up Early American Art

I couldn’t believe the valuable collectibles I found in a pile of stuff a couple of weeks ago! I was amazed!! Besides the unexpected treasures, I also found neglect and bad judgment of packers and shippers had damaged some really valuable works of art… obviously completely avoidable. All it takes to avoid this heartbreak is being careful and doing “it” right… something to watch out for if you are hiring, moving, storing collectibles etc. Check out the short art restoration testimonial from Las Vegas collector at the end if you are thinking you need help with something.

So, when I saw this, I just shook my head in disbelief. I was amazed and jazzed to paw through the pile…

18 photos of the Woodstock Music Festival in 1969 that the photographer, Barry Wolman shot from on stage!! It was so cool to happen upon the photos of Santana on stage and a close up profile of Grace Slick! These were printed by the photographer, signed and authenticated by him.

All 18 photos look like they are in great condition… the thin frames have been banged around and need replacing. BUT Wow!! If you were young and alive back then, “what a trip, man.” Even if you weren’t, what a great piece of 1960s cultural history.  If you would like to give these items a good home, call me and I’ll put you directly in touch with the owner.

Besides the unexpected treasure there was damage to stuff everywhere. I mean, the other art items and collectibles were so banged up it was almost comical. How can anyone be so careless?!?! Stretchers bars broken and the painting mangled; what a way to treat a $15K post World War II Abstract Expressionist Painting.

There was also a $30K French Barbizon painting by one of the best sheep painters, Charles Ferdinand Ceramano… wow, incredible damage… all a result of poor handling, packing and shipping. Add to this the dumb idea of hiding the damaged item and throwing it in a storage unit that heats up in the Las Vegas sun!!
