In June, Potter & Potter is pleased to conduct the first of two highly anticipated auctions of the Nielsen collection. 400 vintage magic posters, spanning the "golden age" of the artform, from 1880 - 1930 and beyond, will be offered in the first sale. Unique, rare, and unusual images will go on the block, along with classic and iconic designs.
Order your copy of the deluxe hardbound catalog - a coffee table book in and of itself - before they sell out.
