(Preview Hours: Day of Sale Only 9-11 AM)


Smith School

80 Locust Street (Route 9)

Northampton, MA


Barbara Lewis, co-founder of our company, directed in her will that we sell her possessions at auction. Her collections include stoneware, decorated toleware, baskets, dolls, needlework, and country furniture.

Barbara’s belongings will be complemented by the complete contents of an 18th century Hampden, MA, residence owned by a 90+ year-old collector.

This final auction of George Thomas Lewis & Company will be reminiscent of our very first auctions over 35 years ago. There will be very few absentee or telephone bids, NO Internet bidding, NO preview the day before the auction, and NO reserves. Come early, as there will be plenty of interesting box and tray lots to examine.

Session II will consist of 125+ lots of jewelry, coins, and currency. Each lot will be numbered and sold in sequence. An additional preview will be available for Session II from 1-2:00 PM.

This auction is the FINAL AUCTION of George Thomas Lewis. Effective October 14th, George Lewis will represent Skinner, Inc. as Appraisal and Consignment Consultant in the Western Massachusetts region. He is looking forward to serving estates personal representatives and consignors in his new role with one of the largest and most prestigious auction galleries in the country.
