Auction Ends Tonight!

The SDCA Health Auction ends with some fabulous pieces, including some new last-minute additions!

Thank you to the many donors who have made the SDCA Health Fund auction the best ever! Tonight is the last night, and there are many wonderful items to close it out. And we have some last-minute additions that will be going up today. Check them out—and to bid—on the auction Facebook page:

If you are not on FB, you can still see the items at this link, but contact us if you need a proxy bidder.

Tonight’s items include:

Sculpture: Here is your last chance to bid on an Eve Pearce ceramic! Plus we have a Ralph Allen Massey sculpture, the rare “Alert Deerhound.” We are also very proud to be able to offer a one-of-a-kind Leslie Hutto piece she made just for this auction!

And just added: Another beautiful acrylic Ralph Allen Massey sculpture, “Deerhound at Rest!”

Books: How often do you find a first edition of Cupples’ Scotch Deerhounds and Their Masters or a second edition of Scropes’ The Art of Deerstalking? Here’s your chance! We’re also offering the coffee-table, photo-filled book, The World of Deerhounds in the New Millenium, which covers Deerhounds around the world from 2000-2015.

Stunning Jewelry includes an Orla Gorlie silver Tudor brooch, an antique Victorian silver thistle brooch, a La Spada silver pendant, and a gold Deerhound head pendant with a diamond eye!

Prints & Drawings: There’s a lot of prints, photos, and a drawing, a couple more Pat Ferris prints, and a rare opportunity to get original drawings of Deerhounds from the creation of the Disney movie Brave.

Paintings: Here is your last chance in the auction to get a Nan Kilgore Little piece, this an oil painting in a hand-finished frame. And, of course, tonight we offer not one but two paintings by Aaron Coberly—the original painting for our clothing design (clothing will be offered when the auction is done) and another painting (pictured above) he did from a photo by Kikko Kåhre.

And just added: “Winnie,” a signed wood or linoleum block done by Annie Fitt!

And that’s not all! We are also offering a handling lesson with sighthound handler extraordinaire Lesley Potts, sharply discounted OFA eye exams offered by our own Dr. Michael Blair, 2 sets of 2014 specialty ornaments/notecards/notebooks, 2 sets of handmade, washable throws made by Gabi Schneidman, a Tyge tile ceramic dish made for the 2001 specialty, and another felted head study in a circular frame made by Pawfelts.

And just added: A handmade Deerhound and thistle tile by Sarah Regan Snavely!
