8-Alaeno (la.) Upp»r D*« MolnM Thundoy, Sept. 30, 1965 Margaret Mary Goecke Bride Here Sept 18th On Sept. 18 in the St. Cecelia's church Margaret Mary Goecke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edw. H. Goecke, became the bride of Jerome H. Dunbar, son of Mrs. James Dunbar of Forest City and the late James Dunbar. The nuptial mass was performed by the Rev. Thomas Knox of Eldora, a friend of the groom. Acolytes were Vincent Esser Jr., Donald Courtney, Mark Nltchals and Joe Goecke. The bride was attended by Mrs. Clifford Esser, her sister, as matron of honor. Susan Nitchals and Frances Goecke were bridesmaids. Marl Lynn Dunbar, niece of the groom, was flower girl. Michael Dunbar, brother of the groom was bestman. James and Francis Dunbar were groomsmen. Soloist was Miss Florence McGuire accompanied by Sister Virginia Marie. A dinner and reception for 170 guests followed the ceremony at the K of C hall. Mrs. L.W. Nitchals and Mrs. Amos Bohnenkamp were hostesses. The bride is a graduate of St. Joseph Mercy school of Nursing in Mason City and is employed at Mercy Hospital there. The groom attended Mason City Junior college and will be resuming his studies at Ft. Lewis college in Durango, Colo. FROM THE ATTIC... ... TO THE VAULT (Y«vr Hrtty - And Your Neighbor'!) By Dick Palmer I think most collectors love an auction whether an active bidder or not and it takes but one exposure to start you watching the ads. It was only by chance, however, that 1 learned about the Gene Harris-conducted antique auction at the local K. C. hall. Mr. Harris has built up a well- deserved following of collectors and dealers. I was quite impressed by the general quality of the material available as well as the organization and auction itself. There was ample opportunity to examine all items before and during the sale with a break for lunch and several brief pauses when the bidders could bring to the sales table any items they particularly were interested in. This would be most helpful to anyone pressed for time as the entire stock consumed several hours of bidding. During my early inspection, I noted two glass items, one carnival, Uiat I particularly wanted and somewhat to my surprise I was able to obtain both without exceeding the price tag I put on my desires. The carnival dish that caught my eye was a basic delicate violet glass with a golden orange base. In the light, it has a golden irri- descence without the heavy-type finish I don't like. There was a small chip on the base which actually is noticeable only if you pick it up. Many collectors are quite particular on this point but I can see no reason for concern if neither the beauty or utility is effected. To me, it was the outstanding piece of the carnival selection and fortunately it was not marked or the price would have been out of range. There is a prestige factor in marked glass yet it does seem to me that the extra value that demand seems to dictate is out of proportion to most of the real reasons for collecting. The mark really adds nothing to the display of the piece and often you have to search for it. Two footed bowls in green, wishbone pattern, marked N, sold for $13 each, which is not high for marked. I believe a dealer got these. An unusual jelly with blue stem and base and a green bowl went for $10 and a marked candy dish in purple brought $15. Mr. Harris declared a bargain the purchase of a napkin holder in green. These odd pieces were produced, of course, in more limited quantities and thus respond to serious collector de- man. A bluish footed bowl in the famous Peacock pattern went for a modest $12.50 and a bowl and three saucers, Tree of Life, in marigold brought $5.50, reflecting the more limited interest in this most common color grouping. Some of the shade variations here are worth looking for, however. - o - Competition was quite spirited for the offerings In Mary Gregory. You can't really tell by looking at a person what he is likely to collect. I doubt if any one would have expected the rather carelessly dressed, 250 (at least) pound gentleman to walk out of there tenderly holding a beautiful matched pair of vases in cobalt blue and a delicate little tumbler in cranberry, total price - $62.50. An attractive pair of tumblers in light blue were purchased by a local collector. Another fine piece went to a local home. This was a most attractive hand-painted pitcher with the original label from the Pickard studios of France. The vase was signed by the artist. It is nice to know that this fine item remained here. This lady reads this column so I will report this "find." As a result of the day's activity, 1 took a casual look at the china closet and noted a pile of plates on the top shelf. For some reason, the other member of the family had failed to note this little collection. Poking around can be quite revealing. At any rate, there was a nice little plate with a green and white flower design, signed, and with the Pickard label. It and other selected items are no longer buried on the top shelf. - o - Plates and china items seemed to attract considerable interest with a portrait plate with vague markings bringing $12.50. Spirited competition usually means that some dealers are involved and that, In turn, means a market demand. Several of these china Items went to a Mason City dealer. A very- attractive Waterbury delft-type china clock was knocked down at $35. - o - I have noted Iwfore that the child's toys of yesteryears are much sought after today. A cast Iron stove with a small pancake griddle which once delighted some future homemaker of American sold for $30. This type of miniature is most welcomed on the what-not shelf but I suspect that there would be less enthusiasm at having the genuine article in the kitchen. And Ire fore you throw away grandfather's old glass paperweight take note. One dealing with the Topcka railroad has now taken the place of someone's $9.50 Yes, my grandfather had some glass paper weights. Yes, as far as I know they were thrown away, unless the other member of the family has them tucked away somewhere.
