This week, we have the pleasure of offering you a chance to own some truly amazing items.
The Dominican Sisters of SIENA CENTER have asked ATR to liquidate thousands of items that are no longer in use at the convent.
Liquidation of amazing collectibles that have been stored for many years.
Items dating from the 1700s to Current. (A handful even older!)
Amazing Religious collectibles- Reliquaries, Host Makers, Fonts, Kneelers, Candlesticks, Rosaries, Books, Statuary, Artwork, and more.
Incredible collection of paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and posters. Oil paintings dating to the early 1800s, modern art pieces, local artists works, listed artists, and plenty of great pieces done by some of the sisters over the past 150 years.
