BACK IN THE DAY….PEDAL TO THE METAL

Back in the day, post Word War II children delighted in the opportunity to drive their toy pedal cars just like mom and dad did in their car or truck.  Modeled after the real cars then seen on the roads, these toys allowed children to ‘pretend play’ for hours outside while enjoying the fresh air.

Today’s fast placed, technologically driven world of tablets, smartphones and other computer devices seems to be the only way to get a glimpse of what used to be, and to reflect on the awesomeness of these fine, detailed toy automobiles.  That is until now!  Vintage pedal car interest has grown in the past few years, and is becoming one of the most desirable, fastest appreciating toy collectible today.  Whether restored or left as found, these cars are now displayed and admired in homes as well as restaurants across America.  They’re great conversation starters and memory enhancers!

Team Legacies is excited to bring to the auction block many, iconic pedal cars and fire trucks on October 7.  It’s a rare opportunity to offer a varied selection of these classic toys. Come join us at the auction, take that trip down memory lane, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll be top bidder and these gems will be back on the road again, turning heads as they pass by!

A Glimpse of Yesteryear’s Nostalgia & Lore

For well over a century, men, women and their families have traveled, vacationed or lived in the South Jersey area.  The Pine Barrens and  Sea Shore have always had so much to offer.  The region still allures people to it’s sandy beaches, the marinas for boating, fishing, & crabbing, and the Pine Barrens for hunting.

This upcoming auction will rekindle memories for those who can appreciate the local heritage. Vintage local items that have been handed down from generation to generation of kin are now available to the public at auction. The successful bidder will take them home and start a new chapter to share with others!

  • Shown above is the actual hotel guest register of the National Hotel under the proprietorship of Mary Enfield Ryder. The register begins in 1928 through 1932!  Each sheet shows the name of the guest(s), where they were from, date & room number.  The real photo post card shows the National Hotel in the left hand corner.
  • Sampling of local ephemera shown above.

During the colder weather, when fishermen couldn’t fish, many carved waterfowl and fish decoys for hunting and decorative use.  Included in the October 7 auction are decoys from Point Pleasant, Forked River, Ship Bottom as well as other unidentified folk art.  In addition to the decoys, we are also offering a large selection of wooden fishing lures.

Shown below are a few decoys that will be auctioned off on October 7.

And one of the greatest fish stories ever told, isn’t a fish story at all.  If you live in South Jersey, then you no doubt have heard of the Jersey Devil folk lore. Beginning in 1735 to this day legendary stories of the Jersey Devil  have been shared as to its sporadic sightings and how it terrorized those living throughout the Pine Barrens region.  Whether you believe in its existence or not, this creepy cast iron ring holder (shown below)  is a great conversation piece, and could be yours!

In addition to the local lure offered, we will also be auctioning vintage Toys, Trains (pre-war), Dolls & Banks; Pottery & Glass; Folk Art & Primitives; Railroadana; Maritime; Ephemera; Signage; Sterling Silver; Costume Jewelry; Breininger Redware; decorative items to enhance your Home and so much more.

Come join us, for fun and conversation, on Saturday, October 7.  Maybe you’ll go home with a piece of South Jersey history.  Food will also be available for purchase by Chef Rich.

Everyone is welcomed…

Yesterday’s Redware, Designed by Lester Breininger, Offered at Auction

Founder of Breininger Pottery, Lester Breininger, was a ninth-generation Pennsylvania Dutchman. It was during the 1960’s when Breininger purchased a red clay dog figurine and had asked a teaching colleague if he could create a match so that he would have a pair.  His colleague suggested that he enroll in one of his classes and form one on his own under his guidance.  Well the rest is history, Lester Breininger was captivated.  He mirrored potters’ techniques and forms used centuries ago.  He dug clay from along the Tulpehocken Creek near Womelsdorf, PA. and before long, he mastered the techniques used by early potters, and the designs of early redware pottery.  Hence his work today is referred to as reproduction redware.

We at Legacies Old & New are pleased to offer a fine selection of Breininger Pottery at our October 7 auction.  Each piece is signed and some pieces note the weather at the time of  creating the figure i.e. ‘rain.’

Below is a Sampling of Breininger Redware Pottery on the Auction Block!

TOY-FEST at AUCTION part 2 — Oh Those Little Toy Guns!

We will be ushering in the New Year with an astonishing mix of antiques and collectibles from all eras, unlike anything that we’ve offered before.  We’ve hand picked items from homes in Washington, Barnegat, Tuckerton, West Creek, Berkeley, & Manahawkin, NJ as well as Catasauqua, PA.  The multi-estate auction will be held at the Eagleswood Fire Hall on Saturday, January 9 beginning with the auction Preview at 8 a.m.

The last blog showcased some of the old Tin Litho toys that we’ve uncovered in a dusty old attic dating from the early 1920’s to the end of the 1950’s. The time span was the greatest period for “hands-on” toys.   The era has long passed, but many of the toys are still around, and work as well as the day they were bought.

Today we will showcase some of the other outstanding, vintage toys on the auction block like the “…little toy guns…no sting no hurt no one…just a bang, bang rolling off your tongue…” (Carrie Underwood, Little Toy Guns).  Playtime was time spent on pretending and using your imagination while having hands-on with these great toys. I’ll bet many of you played cowboys and Indians with those little toy cap guns!  How many of you can recall the Lone Ranger with Tonto, Roy Rogers with Trigger, Dale Evans with Buttermilk, and Bullet too, as well as Hopalong Cassidy!  Well they will all be at the Fire Hall waiting to go home with their new owners! Once home you can play like nobody is watching! Oh, if the toys could talk!
