Items from The Estates of Texas Icons Jimmy Musselman and Onesia Rigney will be Auctioned Online, September 11th-12th

Two important Dallas estates, plus other fine consignments in a wide variety of categories, will come up for bid in a two-day, online and absentee-only auction planned for the weekend of September 11th and 12th by J. Garrett Auctioneers, based in Dallas. Start times both days will be 10 am Central time. Nearly 1,000 quality lots will come up for bid in the two days.

Headlining the auction is the collection of oil magnate Jimmy Musselman. “Mr. Musselman has a knack for finding oil, and he found accidental celebrity when he starred in the movie Big Men, produced by Bratt Pitt,” said Julie Garrett VanDolen, an officer with J. Garrett Auctioneers. “We are honored and privileged to be selling the contents of his Dallas mansion home in the auction.”

The other major estate is that of Onesia Rigney (1940-2020), the renowned interior designer whose husband, the late Frank Rigney, founded Anderson’s Furniture in Dallas in the 1960s. “Ms. Rigney was known for her timeless interiors and for maintaining a portfolio of classical traditional design,” VanDolen said. “We are pleased to offer the contents of her Dallas home.”

Onesia Rigney graduated from Southern Methodist University with a concentration in Interior Design. She was hired as a trainee designer by Anderson’s Studio and was elevated to developing residential and commercial clients. In 1976 she married Frank Rigney and carried on his family business. Ms. Rigney was a member of the American Association of Interior Designers (ASID).

The auction will feature important 19th century oil paintings, a large collection of rose famille porcelain, Reed and Barton Francis I and other fine silver, two pristine Lalique Bacchantes bowls, a Steinway piano, a pair of cloisonné pagodas, rubies and diamonds and designer jewelry by names such as Cartier, Gurhan, Kurt Wayne and Tiffany, plus wonderful decorative items.

Day 1 highlights will feature an oil on panel marine painting by Edward Potthast (1857-1927), titled Blue Boats (circa 1920s), signed lower right and nicely housed in a 14 ¼ inch by 12 ¼ inch frame; and a large, early-to-mid-20th century Italian oil on canvas landscape, signed lower right Belle Firenze (Beautiful Florence), impressive at 47 ¼ inches by 71 ¼ inches (sight, less frame).

Gorgeous French furniture will be offered in abundance, to include these expected star lots:

– An exceptional roll-top desk by Henry Dasson, with detailed cast gilt bronze mounts, reticulated gallery and a tooled leather writing surface, stamped “Henry Dasson 1889”.

– A nice pair of 19th century carved walnut bergères (armchairs having an unusually low and deep seat, with cane woven back and sides), boasting custom designer upholstery.

– An early 20th century parcel gilt settee, with custom chinoiserie motif upholstery and bolsters, 72 inches wide and 42 ½ inches tall.

On to Day 2, where jewelry will also be in the spotlight, with a spectacular Elizabeth Gage pearl and gold necklace, 55 inches long, with baroque South Sea pearls set in heavy molten 18kt gold shell caps to each end and polished gold jump-rings (retail over $160,000) and a pair of diamond solitaire stud earrings, about 3 carats each set in platinum with screw backs (over $86,000 retail).

The Kim Hammergren Collection of Rare Vintage Jukeboxes and Other Items will be Auctioned Sept. 3-4 in Macon, Georgia

Just like the news of Mark Twain’s death, reports of Preston Evans’s retirement have been greatly exaggerated. The longtime auctioneer will find himself conducting yet another major two-day auction event, in Macon, on back-to-back days and at a different venue each day, on Labor Day weekend, September 3-4. The sale will liquidate the estate of Kim Hammergren.

“The past eighteen months have been difficult in so many ways, and my heart goes out to all who have been severely affected by the pandemic,” Mr. Evans said from his home in Macon. “One loss that was especially difficult for me was the loss of my longtime friend, Kim Hammergren. I’m honored to have been asked by his wife Peggy and his children to liquidate his collections.”

Mr. Evans said a huge overflow of items, especially jukebox parts and accessories, will be sold in Auction #1, on Friday, September 3rd, at 1011 Bass Road in Macon. It will feature jukebox parts (including speakers and wall boxes) and jukeboxes that can be restored or used for parts, plus other kinds of interesting items that fans of Preston Opportunities auctions are accustomed to viewing and bidding on. Vintage motorcycles will be a component of Auction #1. A preview will begin at 8 am. The auction will start at 10:30 am (all times Eastern).

Auction #2, the following day, will be held at the former Mercy Grace Church building, about ten miles from the Friday venue. Offered will be a large selection of jukeboxes, Catalin and Bakelite radios from the 1930s and ‘40s, coin-ops, Coca-Cola machines, cash registers, slot machines, arcade games, trade stimulators, advertising items and more motorcycles, by names such as BSA, Cushman, Harley-Davidson and Triumph. Doors open at 7:30 am; the auction starts at 11:15 am.

The Friday auction will be conducted for a live audience only; no online bidding at all. The Saturday auction will be a live event with Internet bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com.

The large crop of vintage jukeboxes includes an excellent example of the Wurlitzer 950 – the “king of jukeboxes” – so rare that one rarely appears at auction. Also up for bid will be a companion to the Wurlitzer 950, an out-of-this-world 430 speaker. Only about 280 of the speakers were produced, in 1942. Both jukebox and speaker were designed by the renowned Wurlitzer designer Paul Fuller. Other hard-to-find jukeboxes from the 1940s-1960s will also be featured.

One of Mr. Evans’s favorite items in the sale is the Mills Panoram movie machine, a forerunner of the early jukeboxes. “It came out around the time that silent movies were prevalent,” he said. “I’ve owned one or two of these machines myself. Some of the film is a little bit risqué for the times.”

Of special interest is an open-top 1920 Acme tanker truck, manufactured in Cadillac, Michigan and once used to haul gasoline from the Michigan oil refineries to gas stations. It shows the logo for MUSGO gasoline, a popular brand from the ‘20s and ‘30s. This remarkable early relic of petroliana is in top-notch condition; even the unusual solid rubber tires were replaced. The truck has been frequently exhibited in parades and other events throughout western Michigan.

The auction will also feature vintage neon signs, including a neon Hollywood sign 16 feet long and 2 feet tall, and a motel sign. “I’ve never seen as many incomparable neon signs as there are in this sale,” Mr. Evans said. Additional items include vintage movie posters for the game room, man cave memorabilia and more. The emphasis, though, will be on jukeboxes – and lots of them.

“Kim and I worked together for years, looking for interesting finds from all parts of the country,” Mr. Evans said. “Kim sold some of his finds, but he was a hoarder like so many collectors are. He amassed a large stash of 45 rpm and 78 rpm records across all musical genres, plus the many jukeboxes and an unbelievable inventory of parts for restoring classic and vintage jukeboxes.”

The boxfuls of 45 and 78 rpm records posed a cataloging challenge for Mr. Evans, who has been working at a breakneck pace getting everything ready for sale. “Some of these records are rare and quite valuable,” he said, “but I just don’t have the time to go through them all. As a result, they’ll be sold in group lots, by musical genre. Record collectors are going to leave with some fantastic bargains.”

“As usual,” Evans said, “we will have options for those who desire better seating opportunities. There will be a big tent set up for the Friday auction, and the Saturday auction will be held inside, with comfortable seating and other accommodations.” There’s no admission charge for the Friday auction; admission to the Saturday auction will be $10 per person, with no perks.

However, the purchase of a color brochure for $25 includes admission to both auction days; $50 includes a brochure, admission to both auction days, seating, and a coupon for lunch; and $100 includes a brochure, admission to both auction days, the best seating and coupons for two meals.

All attendees must register for this auction. People can register through the Preston Opportunities website: www.prestonopportunities.com. Once the registration form is completed, it can be mailed to Karen Braswell, at 110 Clarksville Court, Macon, GA 31210. Her email address is kdbraswell01@yahoo.com. Mr. Evans can be reached via email at presto434343@yahoo.com.

Eating Bananas Vital aides in blood circulation during long journeys

Traveling is fun and exciting, but the journey to reach the desired location is often tiring. Whether traveling by car, bus, train or plane, the fact that it typically requires being seated for a long time can affect the health of the legs. This lack of movement compromises the circulation.

A statement from Doctor Sidney Federmann, nutritional doctor, explains that the lack of movement in the legs can cause Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) of the lower limbs. This disease, according to him, is dangerous because a thrombus can break off and migrate from the veins of the lower parts to the lungs, causing pulmonary embolism, which can be fatal. Pulmonary embolism is the obstruction of one or more blood vessels in the body.
According to a study carried out by researchers at the University of Osaka, Japan and published in the scientific journal, Circulation, sitting for more than five hours straight can increase the risk of pulmonary embolism, by up to 70%. 

Also, according to Dr. Federmann, trips that require sitting for a long time can make it difficult for the blood flow of the lower limbs to return to the heart, especially if there is constipation. The doctor explains that intestinal constipation occurs when there is an accumulation of stool in the large intestine, compressing the veins that carry blood upward, passively, increasing the risk of DVT. This problem is caused by consuming insufficient amounts of foods with fiber and potassium.

When it comes to potassium, bananas are a good option as they are rich in potassium and can provide several health benefits, such as: reduction of fluid retention, blood pressure regulation, and reduced risk of a heart attack. For this reason, according to Dr. Federmann, it is advisable on long-distance trips to consume bananas.

It is known that it’s not always easy to travel with a banana in the backpack or suitcase. The fruit can get crushed, bruised and could dirty other things in the bags. To solve this problem, businesswoman, Gracienne Myers, created Banana Vital – a natural fruit bar that contains only 3 ingredients: green banana, ripe banana and citric acid. According to a nutritional study, commissioned by Banana Vital and carried out by Eurofins (an independent Lab), ripe bananas are a source of fiber and potassium, and also contain antioxidants, carbohydrates and vitamins that offer health benefits. The green banana, on the other hand, helps with the digestion process, being able to control cholesterol and blood sugar levels.

Banana Vital is an on-the-go banana that’s pocket sized, shelf stable, always ripe, and never bruised. The company, which has the capacity to produce 1.2 million fruit bars per month, recently launched Banana Vital Guava, which simply adds guava to its three ingredients.

The patented “Simply Bananas” formula by far makes Banana Vital better than banana. Three simple ingredients in one nutritious bar. Banana Vital is the perfect banana replacement for all traveling needs.
Banana Vital can be found online on website, Amazon, Kroger Marketplace and Faire. It can also be found in stores at Wegman’s, Giant Eagle, select CVS Pharmacies, and select Stripes convenience locations.

The Kiran Nadar Museum of Art 

Established by art collector Kiran Nadar in 2010, the Kiran Nadar Museum of Art (KNMA) is the first privately-funded museum of art exhibiting modern and contemporary works from India and the sub-continent. Located in New Delhi NCR, India’s capital city, KNMA hosts an ever-growing collection of artworks that both highlights a magnificent generation of 20th-century Indian painters from the post- Independence decades and engages with the different art practices of younger contemporaries. 

Sponsored by the Shiv Nadar Foundation, KNMA is focused on bridging the gap between art and the public and fostering a museum-going culture in India. KNMA aims to become a place for confluence, dialogue and collaboration through its curatorial initiatives and exhibitions, school and college workshops, art appreciation discourses, symposiums, and public programs.
