In addition to the fantastic mechanical musical instruments and motor cars to be offered at the upcoming Milhous Collection auction, there is a wide variety of other collectibles set to cross the auction block. The Milhous Brothers applied the same philosophy to all of their collecting efforts; they bought the best examples and then either restored or preserved them in superb condition for others to enjoy.
Excellent examples include the Black, Starr & Frost Hall Clock, the E. Howard Four-Dial Painted Cast Iron Eight-Day Post Clock, four stained glass panels of The Seasons by Mark Bogenrief, an amazing Route 66 Gas Station Custom Replica, a beautiful and complete 35-Foot Antique Front And Back Bar, and numerous other valuable collectibles, including everything from slot machines and art to antique firearms, signs and models. With most lots being offered without reserve, there is truly something for everyone, including an astonishing, custom-built 46-Foot Custom Carousel with 42 animals, two chariots and a Wurlitzer 153 Band Organ.
