"Antiques are a great buy at the moment," says antiques dealer Russ Goldberger, "and our 30% sale makes it even more attractive to purchase now."
Rye, NH (PRWEB) December 09, 2011
Russ and Karen Goldberger will again offer a 30% discount on all antiques, folk art, and decoys on their website, http://www.rjgantiques.com, from December 9 through January 2, following highly successful year-end sales in the past two years. In addition to the discount, all items purchased during the sale are shipped for free in the Continental United States.
As always, the Goldbergers take great care in fully describing and guaranteeing all objects offered for sale from their website. Among the "best buys" in this year's sale, Russ Goldberger notes a miniature doll's sled and a pair of Mason Tackeye Mallard Decoys.
"The sled is a beautiful example in nearly perfect original condition," Goldberger notes. "Only 14" long, there is still paint on the iron runners, which usually wears off because these sleds were actually used to pull dolls around. This one was probably made in South Paris, Maine, and dates to 1860-1880. Originally priced at $3,450, during the sale, this item is less than $2,500."
For beginning decoy collectors, Goldberger favors a nearly mint Mason Tackeye Mallard Pair. "These are natural rigmates. Mason Decoys were packed twelve to a box -- eight drakes and four hens -- so it is very unusual to find a hen that came out of the same box as a drake. They are nearly mint in original paint. Marked $2,850 on our website, at the 30% discount, they are less than $2,000, which is half of what they would have sold for five years ago."
Pioneers in selling antiques and folk art on the internet, the Goldbergers have seen sales from their website expand dramatically in recent years. "We do a small number of antique and decoy shows each year, but a majority of our sales -- both to past customers and to new collectors -- now originate from our website," Goldberger notes. "Our annual year-end sales have been particularly successful. We offer extensive descriptions, multiple high-quality images, and of course our unconditional guarantee to help buyers make decisions with confidence. Combined with regular email newsletters and a continually updated Facebook page, http://www.RJGAntiques.com is one of the most active antiques and decoy websites on the internet."
