The grandmother had great taste and a very eclectic eye. We would have gotten along very well. There weren’t too many people there and only a couple of them were real bidders. I bought two ships figure heads. They were restaurant decor in Bloomfield Michigan until it redecorated in the 1950's. They are old and may be real because they had been in the restaurant since before World War II. She is over 6 feet tall and he is a little shorter.
I also bought a table of framed items. I bought the remainder for about a dozen items for $10. Included in the group was this photograph of Winston Churchill. It is signed and dated Feb. 1935. The signature looks like those that I found on the internet. I haven’t taken it out of the frame yet to see if the signature is in ink or printed. However in an envelop attached to the back was a little note “With Mr. Churchill’s compliments.” This could get real interesting.
