ABERDEEN, Miss. - eMusicWire -- Beautiful carved and root built Thai furniture from a Texas estate, antique furnishings from an estate home in Eutaw, Alabama, and items decommissioned from a private museum in New Orleans will all come up for bid the weekend of January 14th and 15th by Stevens Auction Company, online and live in the Aberdeen gallery at 609 North Meridian Street.

The Friday, January 14th session, starting at 4 pm Central time, will feature items from the estate of Philip Parker (1946-2000), who dotted his east Texas Greek Revival home with antiques and other pieces. Mr. Parker owned an oil field services company in Iraq and became a world traveler. He made frequent trips to Thailand, where he purchased wonderful furniture items.

These will include highly detailed carvings on a teakwood tree trunk that have to be seen to be believed. Carved animals, birds and flowers cover every inch of this 48 inch by 96 inch creation (estimate: $5,000-$30,000). A companion piece is the large, carved teakwood stump with detailed monkeys, elephants, alligators, water buffalo, deer and more (estimate: $5,000-$10,000).

What Dwight Stevens of Stevens Auction Company described as "the most unbelievably carved teakwood bench we've ever seen" – with an eagle, an elephant, a monkey, snakes, deer and more, 9 feet long – has an estimate of $5,000-$10,000, while a large carved teakwood bench with elephants on all sides, 36 inches tall and 77 inches in length, should command $3,000-$6,000.

Day 2, on Saturday, January 15th, has a start time of 10 am Central and will contain an eclectic mix of merchandise in a wide range of categories. The Chillcutt home was filled with gorgeous antique furnishings, including many fine 19th century Old Paris porcelains. Also offered will be cast iron benches, tables, large garden pots, clocks, chandeliers, 19th century lighting and more.

The day's two expected top lots are both vehicles, very different from one another. The first is a vintage 1935 Ford fire engine, completely restored, with everything intact and running perfectly (estimate: $15,000-$30,000). The other is a lovely 2006 Mercedes Benz SL hardtop convertible, white with a panoramic roof and just 75,000 miles on the odometer (estimate: $15,000-$20,000).

Online bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com. An open house preview will be held at the gallery on Friday, January 14th, from 10 am until 4 pm Central time. To learn more, visit www.stevensauction.com.
