Go to Auction
Wed, 04 Nov 1998 22:59:58 -0500
This auction house is: Gilbert Auction House near Effort, Pa. Yes, I have seen
flower vases there, but I don't remember what they went for. Most of their
McCoy items are in excellent condition. As I said in my first post I don't
collect McCoy, so don't pay much attention. I will be more alert now that I see
so much interest in McCoy.
