Have a Duesenberg appetite and a Pinto budget? Well, you can still get your Fred and Augie fix during Morphy Auctions’ Dec. 8-10 sale when a pair of mugs formerly belonging to the Duesenberg brothers cross the block.
The Thursday, Dec. 8 session will be ushered in by 150 lots of occupational shaving mugs. Among the rarest mugs are examples depicting boxers, a veterinarian treating an ailing horse, and a sea captain’s ship, but the entry that is expected to attract the most interest is a pair of mugs that belonged to the Duesenberg brothers, who produced automobiles but actually began as bicycle manufacturers.
“Each of the mugs has a picture of one of the Duesenberg brothers on a bike. The mugs will be sold as a single lot together with a letter of authenticity and other documentation. It’s a great archive,” said Morphy Auctions CEO Dan Morphy.
The estimate is $10,000-$15,000.
