A Peek at Penny Marshall’s Personal Collection of American Arts and Crafts

24 February 2016

Our Early 20th Century Decorative Arts Auction on February 27th features a cache of American Arts and Crafts from some of the most influential makers of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Prominent among these many fine works are 48 pieces from the private collection of actress and director, Penny Marshall. Penny Marshall, best known for her role as Laverne DeFazio in the popular 60’s/70’s sitcom, "Laverne and Shirley", acted in dozens of television shows and movies and directed such beloved classics as “Big” and “A League of Their Own”. What many people don’t know is that this three-time Golden Globe Nominee is also an avid collector of American Arts and Crafts with a keen eye for quality and value. Marshall collected ceramics, furniture, and lighting fixtures from many premier designers and makers, including Saturday Evening Girls, Handel, Pairpoint, and Stickley (Gustav, Brothers, and L.& J.G.).

Discover more items from the personal collection of Penny Marshall here. Or come preview these items all this week from 12-5pm. Doors open at 9am on February 27th.
