Where the wild things are…auction oddities at Paul Fraser Collectibles

It has been another weird, wild couple of weeks here at Paul Fraser Collectibles, as cannibal forks, hippopotamus skeletons and banned sex manuals inextricably attributed to the Greek philosopher Aristotle proceed under the hammer in strange succession.

Auction Unique Collectibles

Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are

An upsurge of interest in the unique collectibles market is evident in the sale price of the cannibal forks alone, which brought £29,440 ($47,353) – an amazing 1,740% increase on their £1,600 ($2,575) presale estimate. On the other hand, maybe cannibalism’s back in vogue… (I know what you’re thinking – not again.)

Hiding amongst these eerie and aberrant artefacts, however, is a real gem: a rare, signed and inscribed first edition of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are, which is to auction at Swann Galleries on January 24.

Check out the unique items Paul Fraser Collectibles currently has in stock to be similarly inspired.
