Scithers Estate Sale

You have two more days to bid on artwork once displayed on walls and shelves in the home of the late George Scithers. The Ebay auction of 47 items ends June 6.

There are art prints of warships (George was a fellow aficianado of the Battle of Jutland), and a copy of Ken Marschall’s “The Final Moments” showing the Hindenberg arriving at Lakehurst. And lots of vintage sf art of the kind once readily available at Worldcon art shows — by Roy Krenkel, George Barr, Don Simpson and Scott Dollens. Getting the most action of all is a unique Rumph mug of Isaac Asimov — it has been bid up to $861.89 already.

Jane Frank of Worlds of Wonder Art is handling the sale. She wrote online:

Nothing has been held back. ALL items given to me to represent have been listed, and with starting prices as LOW as I could make them – given the estate’s desire to sell every item THIS WEEK, and my need to insure that the estate is not short-changed by undervaluing works by artists with proven market value.
