Robert (Bob) and Mary Fraser were dear friends, passionate collectors and all-around wonderful people. It’s bittersweet to bring their lifelong collection to auction as we, and the antique community, will truly miss them. Their exceptional collection will be auctioned alongside that of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Glaser, of Greenwich CT.  Claire Tracy and Frank were avid collectors of country Americana since the 1960s, and for the last 20 years their passion was decorating their historic country Greenwich home with the appropriate primitive antiques. It is the perfect complement to the Fraser collection.
