MARIANNA, Fla. – The estate of Donna Phillabaum, a longtime Florida resident who owns many antiques and collectibles, will be sold Saturday, June 23, at the owner’s home. The auction will be conducted by the Specialists of the South Inc., based in Panama City, with Internet live bidding provided by LiveAuctioneers.com.
Her estate comprises over 300 lots of items in a rainbow of categories. Collectors will have a field day, with Roseville pottery, glass and china, massive collections of phonograph records, matchbooks and Coca-Cola bottle caps, ephemera (to include antique valentines, advertising items and blotters from various companies, beautifully kept in albums), first-edition books and a vintage Pennsylvania Railroad lamp from Urbana, Ohio.
One item sure to attract attention is a framed 30-by-40-inch tapestry that came from the house of the former owner of the Eagle Theater in Blountstown, Fla. Phillabaum, who purchased the tapestry at auction in the early 1980s, believes the piece originated in Germany.
