At Auction: Paddles ready?

Saturday, June 07, 2003

History goes up for auction nearly every month at Dargate Auction Galleries, 214 N. Lexington St., Point Breeze. But it's not often that one auction brings together such a diverse collection of artifacts, including pieces from pop music legends, a controversial Pittsburgh playboy and estates from Sewickley to Cleveland to London.

At the auction June 14 and 15, you can bid on Bob Dylan's 1979 Grammy (estimated to go for $50,000 to $75,000), Michael Jackson's signed moonwalking shoes ($30,000 to $40,000) and architectural items from Lyndhurst, the razed East End mansion of Harry Thaw, who became famous for marrying Evelyn Nesbit, "The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing," and shooting his rival, architect Stanford White. The auction begins at 10 a.m. both days with a preview from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday. Information: 412-362-3558 or www.dargate.com.
