Another extraordinary collection Martin Auctioneers, Inc. was instrumental in selling was the "Brooke Carriage Collection" at our 26th Annual Spring Auction in May 1997. Here are some highlights:
This auction featured "the two best examples of English road coaches still in existence," as stated by the late Tom Ryder. It took place at the Seabrook farm on April 27, 2002.
Our large two-day auctions of Coaches, Carriages, Sleighs, Appointments and Antiques are events you don’t want to miss!
Each spring and fall we conduct auctions in Pennsylvania at the Lebanon Fairgrounds (www.lebexpo.com). These auctions typically draw 400+ horse-drawn coaches, carriages, and sleighs, and several thousand lots of horse-related equipment, agricultural items, equine collectibles and various antiques.
Held inside a 30,000 square-foot building, two lively auctions run simultaneously part of the day. Everything selling Friday is pre-consigned and catalogued.
Just sit back and relax in our reserved seating or bleacher area and get ready to bid as each item is brought across the auction block. After each item is sold, it is placed in a secure area until purchases are paid.
Outdoors and under a tent, up to six auctioneers sell simultaneously throughout the day. Bring lots of friends to help with the bidding!
The day starts with rows of horse drawn carriages, sleighs, and wagons. At the same time selling begins in the field rows with antiques, farm machinery and equipment, carriage & wagon parts, non-horse related items & collectibles and continues through the day. Trucks and trailers sell at noon.
Mid-morning, several auctioneers get underway with our tent sessions including riding and driving equipment, tack, horse related items, livery, and western memorabilia along with a large selection of saddles, harness, and harness parts.
