WHERE: W.A. Smith Auction Gallery in Plainfield, NH

 Since his recent passing, we have moved the antiques and sporting collection of Charles "Buzz" Eichel from Manchester, VT to our gallery in Plainfield, NH for the convenience of sale. Buzz, a prominent lawyer, was a respected member of the Manchester, VT community. His love for the outdoors led him to become the longest standing US ski patroller, serving Bromley Mountain for many years. His love for fishing gained him the title of Trustee Emeritus of the American Museum of Fly Fishing. He also had an acute eye for antiques and with his wife Annaick, owned and operated Owls Head Antiques, which specialized in fishing and sporting. There will also be selected items from another Manchester, VT home to round out the sale. Though the emphasis is sporting related, you can also plan on a desirable selection of antiques, art and accessories. This is truly a unique collection and will make for a pleasant day of bidding. Delivery service available.
