Martha to Auction Prop Studio Items

It's the kind of thing Martha Stewart fans and collectors dream of: going through the various prop libraries that are used to furnish and style those beautiful photographs in her magazines and decorate her television sets. For the first time, Martha will be auctioning off numerous items from the television studio prop library: hundreds of items that were used on the sets of Martha Stewart Living and The Martha Stewart Show.
From vintage glassware to antique dinnerware, from milk glass to woodware, hundreds of items will be up for auction through Kaminski Auctions in Beverly, Massachusetts, beginning May 5th and ending the following day. Absentee (online) bidding is already open for the items listed and live bidding will begin at 10 a.m. on May 5th at the auction gallery at 117 Elliott Street in Beverly, MA. A portion of the proceeds raised from the auction will benefit the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York.

I've highlighted some of the items below, to give you a sense of what will be on offer. Click here to see the full listing. So exciting!
A group of planters and vases.
A group of antique Yelloware mixing bowls, English Transferware serving pieces and dishes, and light-blue milk glass plates, bowls and teacups.
Frosted pink Fenton goblets.
An antique butcher block, which was once used by Martha at Turkey Hill!
Wooden pestles and mortars.
This is one lot of many featuring the cookbooks of the many chefs and authors Martha has featured on her show over the years.
Antique Limoges Beauvais dinner plates.
Copeland Spode Jewel Creamware.
A large, wood-framed print of a Martha Stewart Living magazine cover, measuring 55" by 43". There is a Martha Stewart Weddings print as well with the same dimensions.
This autographed toboggan is one of several signed pieces. Martha also signed a cutting board and a swivel kitchen chair.

Happy bidding!

I like the wooden mortar sets.

In looking through the items on auction there are still many lots without any bids against them. I believe it may be do to the "uneven" groupings (some items of value many not). As the auction is for a charity, I hope bidding increases.

Andrew, I'll probably be there. Would you like me to alert my people to your display here?

Andrea, what I would really love is if you took some photos for the blog! If you're allowed to. Perhaps just the gallery itself and, if you're able to, some of the objects up for auction.

Hi Andrew. If I go, I will be a guest of guests and not likely taking pics, myself. Happy to share whatever I might post, however!
