GLENDALE, Ariz. (June 11, 2019) – An Alaskan prehistoric Mastodon tusk, an antique Edward Farmer jade censer, an original oil painting by Hungarian artist Vilmos Aba- Novak…these are just some of the rare collectibles that will hit the auction block on Friday, June 14 during EJ’s Auction & Appraisal’s Summer Catalog Auction.

A free preview takes place Wednesday through Friday (June 12-14) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with live and online bidding starting at 6 p.m. PT at the full-service auction house, located at 5880 W. Bell Road, in Glendale on the northeast corner of 59th Avenue and Bell Road.

“This is a diverse, high-end collection that comes from multiple estates,” said Erik Hoyer, CEO of EJ’s Auction & Appraisal. “We’re already getting a lot of online interest for the prehistoric Mastodon tusk and other items, and while online bidding is convenient, we encourage people to bid in-person Friday night. It’s a fun atmosphere, you can view the items you want to bid on, and you save with a lower buyer’s premium.”

  • An Alaskan Prehistoric Mastodon Tusk
  • An Antique Edward Farmer Jade Censer
  • A Vilmos Aba- Novak (1894-1941) Oil on Panel
