There were fourteen lots that sold for $500 or more at a July 2019 vintage and antique cast iron cookware auction.
Simmons and Co. Auctioneers held a two-day cast iron auction in Richmond Missouri on July 26 and 27, 2019. 726 pieces of vintage and cast iron and aluminum were sold. The pieces were from a long-time collector.
I followed along with the auction on Proxibid; I wasn’t able to attend this auction in person. I did manage to restrain myself from making any purchases. I’ve written before about the perils of bidding online during a live cast iron auction; the price of shipping being just one factor.
There were fourteen lots that brought $500 or more at the auction. All fourteen lots were sold to on-site (vs. online) bidders.
Without further ado, here they are!
