For over twenty plus years, Wm Morford’s catalogued absentee auctions (Mail, Fax & Phone bid) have specialized in providing our clients with the very best in rare and unusual vintage Antique Advertising items and related collectibles. During this time, our auctions have grown to become among the most anticipated and talked about events in the antique advertising collecting field.
A typical Morford auction will feature a broad selection of scarce and beautiful vintage adverstising signs, early tins (including store bins, tins, boxes and packaging), as well as early signs, posters, cabinets, serving trays, display pieces and advertising smalls. In addition to our antique advertising specialty, our sales typically will also include a nice sprinkling of items from other various collectible categories as well (often including such items as occupational shaving mugs, miniature salesman samples, trade signs, comic character toys, coin-op machines, political items, sports collectibles, early toys and games and vintage Maxfield Parrish items).
We generally run from three to five auctions each year, showcasing fresh to the market discoveries that have been personally and carefully hand selected for you from established collections and our network of leading dealers and pickers throughout North America.
