Keystone State Auctioneers Inc. and Fairchilds Fine Art to Offer Academy Award-winning Jack Palance California Estate Auction

On October 12-14, 2007, Keystone State Auctioneers and Fairchild’s Fine Art will be offering at public auction an outstanding collection of art and antiques owned by actor and legend Jack Palance. Palance amassed the hundreds of pieces of art, furniture and antiques spanning three centuries of time and nearly every continent on earth before his passing. The fact that the massive collection belonged to actor and legend Jack Palance makes it an even more special event.

Jack Palance (born Volodymyr Palanyuk on February 18, 1919) is an Academy Award-winning American actor. While modern movie audiences know him best as the character of Curly in the City Slickers movies and his exciting presence in Ripley’s Believe It or Not, his career spanned half a century of film and television appearances.

The three-day event will begin on Friday, October 12, 2007 and run through Sunday, October 14. His massive accumulation of art and antiques is currently housed at the Holly-Brooke Ranch in Tehachapi, California. In this fantastic auction appealing to the arts and antiques community as well as film history collectors, more than 2500 items (approximately 1,400 lots) will come under the hammer with no minimum or reserve.

Jim Chamberlin, president/CEO of Keystone State Auctioneers Inc. said, “We are proud to offer you the entire contents of Mr. Palance’s amazing collection. This is truly an auction that you will not want to miss. It is very rare to be invited onsite, where our celebrity clients live, to hold an auction. In most cases, the items are removed to an auction house. We are pleased and excited to be involved.”

Keystone State Auctioneers Inc. is a member in good standing of the Pennsylvania and National Auctioneers Associations and over the last ten years has held over 700 auctions. Chamberlin adds, “Specializing in premium auction service to elite and specialized clientele such as celebrities, athletes and executives has been an exciting growth area for our corporation.”
