Cranston, RI, USA, March 10, 2024 — Four important single-owner collections – of museum bandboxes and hatboxes; figural creamers; massive original baseball-themed murals; and police equipment – will all come up for bid on Monday, March 18th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, online and live in the gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, starting promptly at 10 am Eastern time.

Kicking things off at 10 am will be lots 1-39, the collection of historic bandboxes and hatboxes deaccessioned from the Rhode Island School of Design Museum. Eager bidders will be able to experience a wide variety of hatboxes, with their vibrant colors and unusual patterns.

From well-known makers such as Hannah Davis to boxes lined with 19th century newspapers, the auction features the historic wallpapers and designs of the Victorian era and the magical world of hat storage. Estimates are modest; that will ignite bidding wars.

A circa 1850 Andrew Jackson bandbox, covered in a rare “Old Hickory” commemorative War of 1812 pattern featuring president Andrew Jackson walking beside a horse overlooking a landscape over blue field, is certain to attract bidder interest. It has an estimate of $600-$800.
