Dealers clean house for Antiquities-Saleroom's April 19 Antiquities and Ancient Art Discovery Auction
Set of 3 Egyptian Faience Ushabtis, Third Intermediate Period, Ca. 1090 to 663 BCE. Est. $600 to $900.

BOULDER COUNTY, CO.- For their upcoming April 19 auction, Antiquities and Ancient Art Discovery Sale, Antiquities-Saleroom thought the idea of a spring cleaning type sale would be an excellent way to help clear out sister gallery Artemis Gallery’s warehouse, plus have a few other dealers to join in on the fun. With all lot priced under $350, this special sale features authentic examples of ancient and ethnographic art, as well as prehistoric artifacts - most priced below dealer cost! Examples include classical antiquities from Egypt, Greece and Rome, the Near East, the Far East, plus Pre-Columbian art from over a dozen ancient American cultures. You’ll also find really fine and fun examples of ethnographic art, as well as out-of-this-world items like meteorites!

According to Teresa Dodge, Executive Director and co-founder of Antiquities-Saleroom, the April 19 auction includes more than 300 lots of ancient and ethnographic art from cultures all over the world, as well as several interesting fossil and mineral specimens. “All lots in this auction are priced to move, so this is a sale for collectors and dealers alike.” Dodge points out that the April auction showcases more than three dozen published examples from the private collection of Byron Farwell, as featured in the book, "The Farwell Collection" published in 1953 by Franklin P. Johnson, University of Chicago art historian and archaeologist. Byron Farwell was a young Army captain stationed in Italy during WW II, and pieces presented in this book were personally excavated by him in 1944/45 in Ordonia, Italy with the Italian government’s blessing. You can’t ask for much better provenance than that!

Aside from the published Greek pieces from Mr. Farwell, there are also a large number of Egyptian and Roman antiquities, including examples in stone, bronze, pottery and glass, many examples from the Middle East and Far East, especially India, Tibet and China, as well as more than 75 lots of Pre-Columbian artifacts.

And to keep things interesting, and just a little bit different from what Antiquities-Saleroom usually offers at auction, you’ll also find several fine Inuit Eskimo stone carvings, 18th century Delft tiles, early Spanish Colonial silver spurs and carved wooden Santos, many Native American Paleo Points / Arrowheads lots… even six lots of JFK memorabilia! This auction truly has something for everyone!

And like everything offered for sale by Antiquities-Saleroom, all auction lots have been legally acquired, are legal to resell and are guaranteed to be as described. “We do not sell replicas or anything ‘in the style of’ any ancient culture. What’s more, no sale is ever final if the buyer isn’t happy. We want satisfied customers who are happy with what they buy… so they will come back and buy more!” Dodge said.

Antiquities-Saleroom’s Ancient and Ethnographic Art Discovery Sale auction will start at noon EST on Friday, April 19, 2013. Bids may be placed through a variety of methods - absentee (including absentee online), by phone (by prior arrangement) or live on auction day through For additional information about the auction, please call Teresa Dodge directly at 720-502-5289, or send her an email at
