EVERYTHING BUT THE HOUSE is honored to partner with a private museum institution for an auction of art and cultural pieces.

Bid June 19-25, 2017

In 1876, the son of a prominent Midwestern family attended the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition and was bitten by the collecting bug. From then into the early 20th century he collected globally, assembling a variety of art and cultural artifacts, including rare Asian antiquities. Upon his death, the collection remained in his family for a time before being given to a local museum in 1938.

Today, the museum’s focus has shifted, and the collection is less relevant to its mission as a whole. After 80 years of storing the pieces, the museum is deaccessioning them. Proceeds will be used to enhance and preserve the museum’s mission-relevant collection.
