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!

Plus we’re offering a nice selection of Fulper and Stangl pottery, and a Boehm figurine too!

Decades after William Fulper founded Fulper Pottery, he appointed Martin Stangl vice president of the company in 1924.  Also at that time the company expanded by constructing “Plant No. 2” a few blocks from the original Fulper Factory.  Plant No. 2  produced Fulper Pottery’s newly developed Fulper Fayence art and dinnerware lines. The Fulper Fayence dinnerware was America’s first open stock solid-color dinnerware. This line ultimately became Stangl Pottery, and for many years was advertised as “Stangl Pottery, made by Fulper Pottery.” Throughout the 1920s Fulper Pottery Artware continued to be produced at the original factory, however by 1926, demand for the Stangl Pottery products had increased to the point that a third production facility was acquired in Trenton, New Jersey! After 1935, the company continued to be Fulper Pottery, but produced only Stangl Pottery brand dinnerware.

3 GENERATIONS’ WORTH OF TROLLEY TREASURES

In the late 1800’s many cities turned to electric-powered streetcars.

We’re pleased and excited to offer these unique items to you through auction.

Pictured here is a Silk Embroidery on Taffeta done with the skillful hands of  Anne Dandridge Aylett (Alexander), ca 1700’s.  Ms. Aylett was the second cousin to our country’s First Lady, Martha Washington (on the Custis side of the family)!  Yes, Martha Washington (Dandridge) who was also known as: “Lady Washington,” “Martha (Dandridge) Custis Washington,” and “Martha Custis.”  Makes you wonder if Martha and Anne were in the same room during its creation and had any discussions regarding this one of a kind work of art!  This is Americana at its best!  You’ll never see another one!

Anne-Aylett Anderson and Martha Washington information can be found on ‘Geni.’

To add to the spirit of our Americana mix, we will be selling a hand made doll house from the late 1800’s, in it’s original paint and interior wallpaper.  1800's Dollhouse

And items from the 1900’s and 2000’s are, as in the past, exceptional in quality and there’s something from each decade.  Featuring, Furniture and area Rugs, exquisite Pottery, Clothing, costume Jewelry, Toys, Dolls and items for the Sportsmen!  Just in, a large collection of Transit and miscellaneous Signage!  Stay tuned for further details!
