Amesbury, MA, USA, May 3, 2024 — An Auction Extravaganza featuring Part 3 of the Burbridge Foundation Collection out of Oklahoma City, plus other desirable items from prominent local estates and collections, is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th, starting promptly at 11 am Eastern time, by John McInnis Auctioneers, online and live in the Amesbury gallery located at 76 Main Street.

More than 650 lots will come up for bid in two sessions. Session 1 (lots 1-398) will feature decorative arts, paintings, bronzes, sculptures, porcelains, enamels, clocks, furniture, lamps and chandeliers. Session 2 (lots 399-658) will showcase jewelry, silver and Asian art and objects. Internet bidding will be hosted on the two platforms, LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com.

The Burbridge Foundation Collection demonstrates the keen eye of Robert Burbridge (1907-1994), who began scouring the country for antiques in the 1950s. The Part 1 sale of the collection was held at Sotheby’s in New York in the fall of 1996, two years after the death of Mr. Burbridge. The remainder of the collection has been in storage for the better part of 25 years.

“Decades ago, when I first met up with Mr. Burbridge at his 15,000-square-foot warehouse in Oklahoma City, I was astounded at the quality of the items and the vast array of merchandise,”

said John McInnis of John McInnis Auctioneers. “There were scores of paintings, rows of bronzes, marble and sculptures. Exploring with a flashlight, I rediscovered one remarkable object after another.” For the auction, the collection was shipped in three moving trucks to Amesbury.
