Antique Advertising Auctions

For the past 30 years, Wm Morford’s catalogued absentee auctions (Mail, Fax & Phone bid) have provided our clients with the very best in quality Antique Advertising items & fine collectibles and continues to be among the most eagerly awaited events in the antique advertising hobby.

Antique Advertising Auctions

With an emphasis on quality, rarity and condition, these sales focus on the higher end of the market, featuring unique and harder to find pieces for the serious and discriminating advanced collector.

Our Company

We are a small, focused, family run boutique style specialty auction house that strives to provide our clients with the highest quality pieces available, along with a level of personal service, guidance and objective advice that has become almost unique in today's marketplace that increasingly seems to be driven by big box, factory style corporate auction houses.

Auction Focus

In addition to quality Antique Advertising, our sales also showcase interesting and unusual pieces from various other specialty collecting categories, often including occupational shaving mugs, salesman samples, comic character items, cast iron toys and banks, coin-op machines, antique games, as well as political items, sports collectibles and vintage Maxfield Parrish items.

Auction Scheduling

We typically run between two to four of our Premier catalogued auctions each year, always showcasing an impressive grouping of top shelf pieces that have been personally and carefully hand selected for you. In addition, we also run several on-line auctions a year under our AntiqueAdvertising.com brand.

Upcoming Events

Our Wm Morford Premier Auction #96 has been tentatively rescheduled for July 2020. Printed catalogs will be mailed to our paid subscribers in June.
