Rarities At Noel Barrett

Lot number 1374 at yesterday's fantastic Noel Barrett auction included two rare Dorfan light fixtures. I talked with a very experienced, long time collector who told me that, while he knew about these lights from Dorfan catalogs, he had never seen examples of these lights before. This lot sold for $4K. There were plenty of other interesting items at the auction. It was a great opportunity to see some real rarities.

It's York week and this year the semi-annual TCA Spring trainfest is sandwiched in between two significant tinplate train auctions, the Noel Barrett auction yesterday, and the Bertoia auction next weekend. Hey guys, spread 'em out a bit, will ya?
