New Hamburg, ON, Canada, January 27, 2020 -- A Canadiana, Pottery & Folk Art auction featuring the collection of the late Don Pero – a quiet but passionate collector of old school primitives, from pottery to furniture to folk art – will be held on Saturday, February 8th by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd., online and in the gallery at 59 Webster Street in New Hamburg, Ontario.
"Don Pero had an appetite for the items he collected, all of which were authentic and important," said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions. "Everything he collected had flair. For decades he was a patron of one of Canada's most renowned dealers – Ron O'Hara. Don quietly absorbed some of Canada's rarest historic objects. Now, these many objects will be sold without reserve."
Also offered will be the lifetime collections of John Wine and Jim Fleming, pioneer collectors of pottery and folk art, respectively. The 640 curated lots of historic artifacts in the sale include primitive and fine furniture, early pottery, fine art, folk art, historic objects (to include advertising and ephemera, military items and toys) and decorative arts (to include lamps and lighting, bronzes and statues).
Nearly all the lots in the auction carry a strong Canadian theme. An expected top lot is a large wood carving by the inventor and Canadian artist Yosef Drenters (1931-1983). Titled Mother and Child, the figural wood carving is 6 feet tall and has a pre-sale estimate of $12,000-$15,000. It was gifted by Drenters to the current owner in 1973. All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.
A rare, signed Canadian Wagner Ginger Beer bottle, stamped "Jos Wagner Maker Berlin Ont" just above the lower edge, 8 ½ inches tall, is expected to hammer for $5,000-$7,000. The same estimate has been assigned to a handle-less cup and saucer attributed to The William Eby Pottery (Conestoga, Ontario, 1855-1907), featuring a blue and green slip decoration over a lead glaze.
