The Charles Martignette collection of American illustration art

My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.

I’m preparing for our 5-week show circuit in Florida and North Carolina, so I don’t have the time to write a more thorough post. I think you’ll enjoy reading about the Charles Martignette collection of American illustration art. Charles put together the finest and most comprehensive collection ever assembled. Heritage Auction acquired the entire collection after his untimely death in February, 2008, and sold it over several years. Total sales for the 4,300 lots of art were $21.68 million.

I’ve been quite busy buying and selling recently, partly because I’ve listed many new items on my website. I really need to buy more, so if you have something great, please offer it to me for sale. I am paying the highest prices of any dealer. My decisions are quick and my payments just as quick. Just snap a photo and email me a jpeg.

I will continue to list more as often as possible. Please click here to take a look.

We’re still very much in business between shows, especially since there are fewer shows nowadays. Please don’t hesitate to email or call. I always strive to offer the finest objects for sale on my website and at every show. There are many items for sale, sold items with prices and free lessons about glass and lamps. And remember to keep reading my blog.
