Auctioneers Note: It is with great pleasure to have accepted the contract to handle part two of the Burbridge Foundation Collection (the first having been held at Sotheby’s, NYC in the fall of 1996, shortly after the death of Robert Burbridge in 1994). This collection demonstrates the keen eye of Robert Burbridge, who began scouring the country for antiques in the 1950’s. On a wintry mid-western evening in 2017 I was astonished to see what Burbridge had amassed in his 15,000 sq ft warehouse. Scores of paintings, rows of bronzes, marble and sculptures. Exploring with a flashlight I rediscovered one remarkable object after another. Ranging from an Indian motorcycle, a statue of Dionysus, a Clymer printing press, chandeliers, Russian art, and more. It was a delight to explore. For the convenience of the sale the collection was shipped in 3 moving trucks to our gallery. I invite you to discover for yourself this collection which has been in storage for over 25 years.

Robert Oscar Burbridge (1907-1994): Among Mr. Burbridge's many successes was the "Tamperpruf" Badge System used all over the world from World War II through the Korean War for government security and identification, including Cape Kennedy. In addition, Mr. Burbridge cornered the market on the manufacture of security decals during the 1940's and over the decades expanded into decals for parking at universities and other institutions.
