Born in Wisconsin and raised on a farm, Daniel Kirchner came to collecting at an early age. When he was 12, he went to an auction in Ellsworth, which launched a lifetime hobby and an enjoyable pursuit that lasted over 50 years. Mentored by several antique enthusiasts who sought items of earlier times, Mr. Kirchner developed a similar appreciation, focusing on decorative arts of the 19th century. On the hunt even before he could drive, Mr. Kirchner would visit local auctions, flea markets, estate sales and antiques and secondhand shops, dropped off by his parents who would pick him up an hour or so later.

In accounting by trade, Mr. Kirchner relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 1976. He took along with him a number of his valued collectibles from Wisconsin, some then in his possession for over 40 years, and continued the hunt in California for treasures that pleased him.

Now, having retired several years ago and downsizing to a new home, Mr. Kirchner is ready to pass along the alluring decorative collection he amassed, beginning as a boy and continuing for over half a century.
