19TH C. Carved Wood Panel Scheak Collection, Brantford Museum #W61
I bought this item in 2011 at Waddington Auctions, this item belongs to Scheak collection of exotic international antiques, acquired by the Brant Museum and Archives in 1993, item was on display at the Museum until they decided to sell the whole Scheak collection it in 2009. Scheak was a charmingly eccentric retired engineer who made a fortune playing the stock market and spent 40 years amassing antiques. He had no descendants and, when he was in his late 80s, hit upon the Brantford museum as a possible home for his collection, which he hoped to keep intact. Many discussions and visits with museum and Brant County officials resulted in a deal that became public in 1993. Panel size 57.5 cm x 9cm x 3.5cm, # W61. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian Antiques\Other Asian Antiques". The seller is "ancient_beads" and is located in this country: CA. This item can be shipped worldwide.
