Ok you guys ready for this ????

14K-18K as it sits right now which is cool BUT I have to find a buyer. The guy that looked at it is contacting some of his buyers to see if anyone of them are interested in it. He said I could put it up at auction here at a local upper class auction and would get 8K min for sure...

Will let you know how it all goes over the next couple of days...

This I will say was a good luck of the draw....Its all a gamble this one just payed off BIG TIME.

Congratulations! Thats a nice score. I new it had value,  being hand carved and hand painted. Did your guy confirm your huntch that it is indeed a bar? And from Germany? My biggest question from the start was how does the average German citizen have a bar of that value in their home? I like the research end of this hobby alot is all I'm saying. I hope you get close to the high estimate. Awesome score, congrats again.

Thanks for the update. That is really great. Even on the low end. Good luck finding that buyer.  ;D

I have to wait a couple of weeks to get the full details on it. I know it was made by a company that was owned by 2 brothers that did it together. Each piece was unique within itself. They started in the mid 60s till the late 80s when one of them passed and the Company just stopped when that took place.

Like I said will have more details in a couple of weeks.

 Try selling it to one of the tv production companies for one of the storage auction shows , they should value it at $ 20,000 to $ 30,000 .    ::)

I found a coffee table and 2 end tables in a locker in Houston. They are the same design carved and painted mountain scene and are covered with glass. From what i can tell from things i found in the unit the guy was in the army stationed in Germany in the 60's. I have not been able to find out much information about them. I will try to post pictures.

will try to post pictures.

Pictures would be good. Meanwhile this seven month old thread lives again thanks to Texas. Also we haven't heard from Lockerfreq about the outcome of his sale during that time. Guess he's too busy selling Zumba gear in Virginia....maybe he'll branch out to Texas.

As I post this three Texas members are online...what are the odds ?  Tclane, vwbusman1 and krausehouse.
