    This fine example of carved Americana brought a great sale!

    Vintage Americana is one category with potential for huge sales.  Just take for example this classic Carousel Rounding Board, elaborately carved of wood and featuring fine detail and bright colors!  Pieces like this can bring in big bucks for collectors and restoration specialists, and it’s easy to see why!

    This piece was in great condition for its age, but needed some care and restoration.  Its sale at $600.00 shows the potential for this genre, as great Carousel and Carnival items can be huge sellers.  The detail of the carvings, the bright colors, and the size (roughly 60″ by 30″) all lent toward a strong sale.  Auction Bay showcased its features, and the buyer did the rest.

    If you have classic American carved art like this, it could bring in the bids on eBay, and Auction Bay Online will help you sell it!

    This piece of Americana sold for a huge $2,312.87 at Auction Bay!

    Here we have a piece of American history!  We knew this fine specimen of antique Americana would bring a good sale, but we were surprised to see how high the bids went!  This is definitely an Auction Bay favorite.

    This vintage piece of patriotic decor was impressive in size, measuring 41″ wide by 18″ tall.  It depicted a majestic bald eagle, the United States’ national symbol, with wings spread wide.  Cut from a single piece of wood, it had impressive detail, from the lines in the feathers to the folds of the furling flags below.  It attracted quite a few watchers, and 13 bids from 5 different bidders, all vying for the chance to add this bird to their collection.  Its final sale reached a whopping $2,312.87!!

    If you know of any artworks like this one, or other specimens of America’s patriotism in art, they could be very valuable.  We’d love to help you sell them, and our listing methods will make sure they get viewed by all the right people to sell for as much as the market will bear!
