On Saturday, April 24th, Kamelot Auction House, one of Philadelphia’s premier auction companies, will host the annual Antique Garden and Architectural Auction. This perennial April sale is one of the most important garden-themed antiques markets in the nation, and attracts private collectors and top dealers internationally. Doors open at 9am on Saturday April 24th and bidding begins at 10am. The public is invited to preview the items on April 21, 22, 23. All are welcome.
“On the heels of Philadelphia’s Flower Show, our annual Antique Garden and Architectural Auction has become a springtime tradition here and is an established source for both professional and individual buys across the country,” said Jeff Kamal, President and CEO of Kamelot Auction House. “The sale offers residential gardeners an opportunity to furnish their outdoor living areas with flair and originality, and offers professional designers and seasoned auction-goers rare and very special garden antiques.”
Kamelot Auctions’ 15,000 square foot showroom is overflowing with unique displays of garden and architectural elements including antique and vintage carved stone planters, urns, fountains and statuary, fine bronze and ironwork furniture, outdoor fixtures, birdcages, stained glass, lighting and a large collection of industrial tables and vitrines.
This annual auction event also promises a unique selection of antique architectural iron, including a heavy Furness-style four-paneled iron gate from the nineteenth century—purported to have been an original feature of a historic Philadelphia area estate, and an iron balcony from France having exactly the same design as those displayed on the façade of the Louvre.

- An exceptional and monumental antique American Victorian iron urn
- An Oscar Bach marble and bronze conservatory table
- An antique conservatory table circa 1885, marked “Perth Amboy Terra Cotta Co.“
