E.W. King House Tag Sale
November 19, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Bristol Historical Association has scheduled a Tag Sale to be held at the E.W. King house on Saturday, November 19, from 10:00am to 5:00pm. The house is located on the corner of Anderson and Seventh Streets in downtown Bristol. Access to the sale will be from the rear of the building, adjacent to the Ferguson Animal Hospital.
The association recently accepted an offer to sell the historic E.W. King house, a landmark that was constructed in 1903 for Edward Washington King. The house was listed on the National Historical Register in 1999. In the late 1990’s the association began a campaign to restore the landmark into a local house museum but due to funding the plans were changed. As a result the house was placed for sale. The plan for the museum, and the later sale, has been a labor of love for the association and many Bristolians. As a result the BHA will be offering for sale a number of furnishings that have been stored for the planned house museum and other items de-accessioned from their collection.
This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase period Victorian furniture and other furnishings for your collection. Items include Eastlake chairs, settee, marble table, and secretary, a 1920’s Victrola phonograph, White sewing machine, patterned china, glassware, lamps, home décor’, and decorative books. The original partner-desk from the E.W. King firm will also be available at this sale.
