AUCTION JULY 16-17, 2011 Atlanta, Georgia


Dear Friends,

It’s Summer. Time for vacations, fireworks, fun in the sun--on the boat or at the beach, lounging by your pool, and enjoying a more relaxed season with family and friends. So, with that, we welcome you, our friends, to join us at our Summer Extravaganza, July 16-17, 2011. For many, many years, you have joined us for our auctions and festivities, or perhaps, this is your first. Regardless, there are a few things you should know... We have been often imitated but never duplicated. We are the Original, the Biggest and the Best. We have more bars than the Great Golden Movement Auction of the 1980’s. We have more pool tables, game room furnishings and slot machines than the famous Roy Arrington Victorian Casino Auctions of the 1990’s. We have more furniture, more collectibles, more lighting, more food, more fun, and more excitement, than anywhere else in the world. We are the only place you can find a Tiffany window, a monumental mantel or fountain (your choice), and a marching band under the same roof. We have what you are looking for and what you never knew you wanted but quite possibly need. The catch is...you really have to be here in person to fully experience the fun, excitement and action. So grab your check books and hop on a train, plane, bus or car (we have all of those, too!) Get a friend or get a group and make your way to Atlanta, GA for a weekend of treasure hunting and our greatest adventure yet. See you soon! Good Bidding, FP10524. superb, monumental 18th century painting of Botticelli’s “Springtime.” From a private home in Florence, Italy.

Highly Rare

Stalactite: An average growth rate is 0.13 mm (0.0051 inches) a year. The quickest growing stalactites are those formed by fast-flowing water rich in calcium carbonate and carbon dioxide, these can grow at 3 mm (0.12 inches) per year. Every stalactite begins with a single mineral-laden drop of water. When the drop falls, it deposits the thinnest ring of calcite. Each subsequent drop that forms and falls deposits another calcite ring. Eventually, these rings form a very narrow (0.5 mm), hollow tube commonly known as a “soda straw” stalactite. Soda straws can grow quite long, but are very fragile. If they become plugged by debris, water begins flowing over the outside, depositing more calcite and creating the more familiar cone-shaped stalactite. The same water drops that fall from the tip of a stalactite deposit more calcite on the floor below, eventually resulting in a rounded or coneshaped stalagmite. Presently it is illegal to quarry stalactites or stalagmites in the U.S. and in most other countries, as it can leave the environment of the caves unstable. Lucky for you, you can own them!

AC7255. Highly unusual and rare pair of stalactites.

As an innovative artist, Louis Icart (1888-1950) is unmatched as his career was a success for some forty years. In the 1920’s, he captivated the free spirited Parisian art scene with his juxtaposition of traditional forms within the avant-garde Art Deco movement as he explored and perfected various etching techniques. In his female subject, Fanny, who later became his wife, he was able to capture the elusive combination of innocence and experience that would become his signature. His works were widely collected throughout his life, and today his etchings are highly collectible. Red Baron proudly offers a select few of the works of this elite artist. Full list is available, please call for details.

The $100 Misunderstanding...

once again we wish to clarify our longstanding policy regarding the $100 admission fee to this auction. This meager stipend is simply a deposit, to be fully credited towards any purchase of merchandise you may make at the auction. You may consider it a reservation for seating space at our extravaganza. Now, some of you have speculated that this request for a deposit was to insure that freelaoders, and voyeurs were kept at a distance and also to provide us with some last minute petty cash for our luxuries. While these rumors are declassĂŠ--insulting--and quite frankly, very disturbing, they are also (needless to say) 250% true. However, for this event--we will offer 2 for 1 admission---so, bring a friend!
