Of Eagles and Presidents - Reporting on the First of Two Sales of the Creutzburg & Martin Collection

O’Hare, Kurt

I have a special place in my heart and in my life for Chet Creutzburg and David Martin who, in my early days of collecting American themed transferware, became friends and teachers. They, along with fellow collector Nick Routson, introduced me to Hayden Goldberg and Curtis Brown and explained their collection to me in some detail over dinners in Brooklyn. So when I learned they were preparing to pass on their collection to a new group of collectors, I had to be present for the sale.
