PAST AUCTIONS

Chippewa Spinners from 1910
Lure Bidders to Canadian Auction

Fishing lure collectors had a field day at Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd., in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada. Three green Chippewa spinner lures made around 1910 by the Immell Bait & Tackle Company of the United States brought a combined CA$24,780, and a clever Canadian-made circa 1930 Lurette No. 2 “living bait lure” was reeled in for CA$3,750—a record price for the lure.

French Furniture and Decorative Arts
Make a Strong Showing

The Bruneau & Company auction showed strong results for French furniture and decorative arts when compared to years past. “Competitive bidding brought the French Neoclassical bronze figural group to a private collection in Egypt, followed by a pair of parquetry inlaid bombe chests to Canada. You never know where things are going to end up,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Company specialist.
