Oak furniture,country store items among Hewlett offerings
LE GRAND, Calif. – Longtime California antique dealer Glen Brown is to the point where he is letting go of his private collection.

For several years Brown ran a high-end antique shop; he also put his time in on the road driving to shows. Recently, he sold his antique store, retired and moved to Arkansas, and then moved back to California. He may move again. But, he’s not moving with his collection again. It’s impossible, he has concluded.

His collection will cross the auction block on Jan. 13 at Hewletts Auctions.

Brown always bought the best he could find. “Glen was a very nice man and a very knowledgeable dealer,” one lifelong acquaintance said, “but he was hell to bid against at an auction.”

His interests include American oak furniture, general store advertising and utilitarian items (including bean bin counters, showcases and antique scales) and anything unique. Expect a lot of these things at the auction.

A particularly note-worthy collection of art glass pickle castors will be sold, in addition to a variety of clocks, spool cabinets (including a Merricks round top model) and a country store backbar.

In a sale that will have nearly anything one man (or woman) needs, it includes at least one good practical antique for those facing a cold winter: a coal-fired, copper and wood bathtub.
