New Hamburg, ON, Canada, March 20, 2023 — Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. will be a hive of activity later this month, with a Canadiana & Decorative Arts auction on Saturday, March 25th, followed the very next day by a Historic Lamps & Lighting auction.

“The March 25th sale offers collectors of Canadian heritage a chance to ‘drink from the cup’,” said company president Ethan Miller. “An important basket of fresh to the market material is hitting the market at once. A case in point: the Skip Kerr collection. When Skip wasn’t building the go-to online resource for ‘made in Canada’ Pequegnat clocks, he was hunting for them.”

Mr. Miller said many of the Pequegnat examples Skip fought the hardest to acquire will be featured in this sale. He added, “There are also contributions from Toronto’s beloved optometrist Marty Osler. Marty could easily be considered Canadiana’s poster child. He adds flavor to the mix with contributions ranging from fine Canadian furniture to Canadian folk art and militaria.”

As expected, the day’s anticipated top lot is an oil on board painting by the acclaimed Canadian folk artist Maud Lewis (1903-1970). Titled Traffic Jam, the 11 ½ inch by 12 inch early and humorous work depicts a cow blocking a car from getting by. It’s a bit out of sync with Lewis’s repertoire, but is a rare and important example of the breadth of her work (est. $30,000-$35,000).
