The family was very good at keeping records, we have many of the original receipts and descriptions. Some highlights include over 100 fine etchings by Tanaka Ryohei b.1933 each one signed, numbered and titled, we will sell them in several different lots and individually. Also lots of pottery by the famed potter Richard Bennett of Great Barrington pottery, Richard known for the Wooden Kiln brought from Japan in the 1960’s. Also we offer several bronze pieces by Gordon Brott 1932-2008 Camden, Maine including a large spread eagle sculpture.
