Session 1, starting at 10 am Eastern, will kick things off with estate firearms, ammunition and militaria – about 90 lots in all. Session 2, at around 11 am, will contain approximately 575 lots, with highlights coming from Warwick, N.Y. to the heart of Manhattan. These will include fine art, Mid-Century Modern, fine jewelry, coins, a collection of stoneware, sterling silver and more.

Online bidding is via LiveAuctioneers.com/Estate-of-Mind and Auctionzip.com (ID #11093).

Certain to pique bidder interest is the rare volume written, illustrated and published around 1913 by Edward S. Curtis (American, 1868-1952), titled The North American Indian. Curtis was a photographer and ethnologist whose work focused on the American West and Native American people. He was largely forgotten upon his death, but interest in Curtis's work has since revived.

Also expected to do well are the Pablo Picasso ceramic decorated vase (or pitcher) for Madoura Pottery, 12 ½ inches tall, executed circa 1955; and an oil on canvas painting signed by the Old Lyme Association artist Gershon Camassar (Conn., 1908-1995), done around 1950/60, titled Gallagher's Farm (circa 1950). This is just one of five paintings by Camassar in the auction.
