SOLD at The Super Auction: Roseville Cherry Blossom

This is the first post in a series on prices realized from The Super Auction held on Febuary 28, 2009 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

This Roseville Cherry Blossom vase was the fourth item sold in the Belhorn Auction Service’s pottery session. After considerable bidding activity the piece sold for $575.

“The piece was a great example of Cherry Blossom line with good color and mold,” stated auctioneer Greg Belhorn. “Our pre-auction estimate was $400-$500 on this mint piece and I think it was well worth the money spent given the quality of this piece.”

Belhorn continued, “We had a number of Roseville pieces in the first Super Auction and after the feedback from both our seller and the buyers in attendance we will be offering more pieces of this iconic art pottery at the next Super Auction. We hold regular pottery auctions around the Midwest and online. Please visit for more details.”

Recap of The Super Auction I

The Super Auction brought auctioneers and buyers from the across the Midwest together for an unique auction event on February 28, 2009 at the Washtenaw Farm Council Grounds in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Over 360 bidders from seven states made the first Super Auction an event to remember. The event started promptly at 10:00 AM and the last item crossed the block a few minutes before 3:00 PM. The event featured collections from across the Midwest and South and had something for nearly every collector and enthusiast. In the five hours of fast and furious selling nearly 1400 lots of pottery, antiques, advertising, ephemera, firearms, sports cards, sterling silver, coins, clocks and collectables of all shapes and sizes crossed the auction block.

“We wanted to have both quality and quantity and the auctioneers of The Super Auction delivered,” stated David Helmer of Braun and Helmer Auction Service and The Super Auction manager. “This event was true collaboration and a team effort in every sense. Each auction company brought their skills and talents to the table and The Super Auction exceed expectations. “

Plans are already underway for the second Super Auction in the Fall of 2009. The location will be the same, as will the auction companies represented. If you are interested in consigning to the next Super Auction please contact one of the auction companies.
