Web Wilson will set the stage with a big auction on New Years Day 2009. There will be 100 lots of collector quality hardware going on the Internet auction block and every lot will have an opening bid of $10. Then the bidders will determine just where the collectible doorknob market currently sits, and where it is likely heading.
To register as a bidder for this exciting and interesting auction, visit AntiquesYes.com. Bidding will open on December 26 at 10 am EST. The auction will close on New Year’s Day, beginning at 12 noon. Jump in, have a blast, and let’s see what free market forces will do for all of us.
WebWilson.com produced their first antique hardware auction in 1995 and from the start they have built a reputation for quality, integrity, and record setting prices. They sold the first “doggie” door knob for $3600 in 1996, and a few years later, sold a rare variation of the doggie design for more than $8000. In 2005 Web Wilson’s Internet auctions set the current world record doorknob price when they sold an MCCC Standing Elk knob for $9450.
