All-Dairy Antiques Auction a success


– When the last gavel dropped at the first All-Dairy Antiques Auction Sept. 22 in Harrisburg, Pa., 30 unique and rare collectible dairy items had been sold for an impressive $6,300.

The auction was part of the 12th Annual All-Dairy Antiques and Collectibles Show at the All-American Dairy Show, held at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.

Much like the theme for the show, the auction included many items featuring the Guernsey breed, but many different dairy items were sold.

A 14-karat gold Guernsey jug ring was the high seller of the night, bringing in $1,400.

Other high-selling items included a Dazey glass ice cream churn, Brokhoff’s Ice Cream advertising flavor sign and an Adrossan Farms milk bottle.

A White Mountain one-quart ice cream freezer, which still featured its original green paint, was made in the U.S.A. and patented June 2, 1823, sold for $250.

Harry Bachman, Annville, Lebanon Co., served as the auctioneer.

Baker Bonnigson Realty and Auctioneers of Clyde, Ohio, held the Grosjean auction Sept. 19 in Curtice, Ohio.
