Vast Hollywood memorabilia collection of TCM host, movie historian Robert Osborne includes 1936 Oscar® + book signed by 383 Academy Award® winners, other stars

The Osborne collection is vast, with a timeline that documents the motion picture industry from the 1930s through present day.”

— Grant Zahajko, Owner of Grant Zahajko Auctions

DAVENPORT, WASH., USA, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — To millions of movie fans, Turner Classic Movies (TCM) host Robert Osborne (1932-2017) was not just the ultimate authority on Hollywood’s entertainment industry, he was also very much a part of it. His urbane demeanor and calmly authoritative voice made him a compelling presence on television. At the Academy Awards® and other red carpet events, Osborne was a bona-fide A-lister, right alongside the stars he chronicled in his lifelong career as a movie historian.

Osborne’s passion for motion pictures was part of his DNA. “It was both his work and his hobby,” said Grant Zahajko, owner of Grant Zahajko Auctions, the Davenport, Washington, company commissioned to sell Osborne’s personal collection of Hollywood memorabilia. The October 10 auction is “a living representation of Mr Osborne’s distinguished career,” Zahajko said, and was amassed over 50+ years. The archive is owned by Osborne’s three nieces. Remote bidding will be available worldwide via phone or Internet.

The collection’s headliner is the 1936 Oscar® statuette awarded to acclaimed art director Richard Day for his work on the 1935 film The Dark Angel, starring Fredric March and Merle Oberon. Day was nominated for 20 Academy Awards® between the years 1930 and 1970, and won seven, including Best Art Direction for A Streetcar Named Desire (1951) and On the Waterfront (1954).

“The sale and purchase of Oscar® statuettes is strictly controlled by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts (AMPAS®), however in those rare instances when they are made available in the marketplace, as is the case with the Oscar® from Mr Osborne’s archive, it’s very exciting for collectors,” Zahajko said. Last year Gregory Peck’s Oscar for the 1947 film Gentleman’s Agreement sold for nearly $500,000, and in 1999, Michael Jackson paid $1.5 million for David O. Selznick’s 1940 Gone With The Wind Oscar®. Richard Day’s Oscar® is offered with a $70,000-$100,000 pre-auction estimate.

Another premier item in the auction is Osborne’s personal copy of the 1979 book he authored titled 50 Golden Years of Oscar®: The Official History of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. For decades, Osborne sought and secured the autographs of Oscar®-winning stars – Best Actor and Actress, and Best Supporting Actor and Actress – on pages pertaining to the films for which they had won their awards. Additional pages feature the signatures of other category winners and nominees. The book contains at least 383 signatures, including those of Katharine Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman, James Stewart, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Bette Davis, Lord Laurence Olivier, and many other screen legends. The 294-page book is expected to sell for $20,000-$30,000.

The Osborne collection is vast, with a timeline that documents the motion picture industry from the 1930s through present day. There are thousands of stars’ photographs and signed letters; publicity, still and wire-service photos; press kits, early movie magazines, lobby cards and more. An original three-sheet movie poster from the 1949 Gary Cooper film The Pride of the Yankees, in unused, like-new condition, is entered with a $4,000-$6,000 estimate. An autographed photo of Babe Ruth in Yankee pinstripes, swinging a bat, has a $7,000-$9,000 estimate.

The auction will take place on Oct. 10, 2019 at Grant Zahajko Auctions’ gallery, 510 Morgan St., Davenport (suburban Spokane), WA 99122. Start time: 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET. Absentee, phone, and live-online bidding available through Grant Zahajko Auctions’ bidding platform: https://bid.gzauctions.com . Tel. 509-725-5600, email info@gzauctions.com.

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Part of the astounding single-owner collection of Alexander Murray of New York City, including more than 50 pieces of one-of-a-kind, hand-made textiles spanning 250 years of Japanese history, will come up for bid at an auction scheduled for Saturday, October 26th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, online and in the Cranston gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue.

The offerings in the Bruneau catalog represent 52 exquisite examples. Also offered will be over 250 Japanese scroll paintings and over 20 bronze and iron antique Buddha figures.

The Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, New York featured these very kimonos as part of its Lethal Beauty Exhibit of Samurai Weapons and Armor from October 12th through January 4th, 2015. The Nippon Gallery in New York City exhibited the offered collection of kimonos as part of its Essence of Kimono exhibition in July and August of 2013.

The textiles collection is unmatched in its breadth and diversity, representing every type of weaving, dyeing and decorative technique in silk, cotton, hemp, ramie and wool.

“Asian arts have always been a specialty of mine, and this sale hits me right in the sweet spot,” said Kevin Bruneau, president of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. “Plus, Alex is a great guy to work with and we couldn’t be prouder to represent the collection. High fashion has come to Bruneau.”

Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and specialist, added, “Auctioneering this sale is certainly going to hold some surprises, especially when it comes to the scrolls. I’m very curious to see what pops and what doesn’t. I’m sure out of 253 scrolls there are bound to be some gems.” Mr. Landry added that the original paintings have pre-sale estimates ranging from $50-$10,000.

Kimonos promise to be a major attraction. A circa 1890 Meiji Period hand-painted Furisode kimono, lined with a striking brocade and boasting a 49 ½ inch wingspan, is estimated to bring $2,000-$3,000. The hand-woven light blue silk crepe five crested kimono is decorated with yuzen dye flowers rendered with multiple tones and depth accentuated by embroidery.
