"Don Pero had an appetite for the items he collected, all of which were authentic and important," said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions. "Everything he collected had flair. For decades he was a patron of one of Canada's most renowned dealers – Ron O'Hara. Don quietly absorbed some of Canada's rarest historic objects. Now, these many objects will be sold without reserve."
Also offered will be the lifetime collections of John Wine and Jim Fleming, pioneer collectors of pottery and folk art, respectively. The 640 curated lots of historic artifacts in the sale include primitive and fine furniture, early pottery, fine art, folk art, historic objects (to include advertising and ephemera, military items and toys) and decorative arts (to include lamps and lighting, bronzes and statues).
Nearly all the lots in the auction carry a strong Canadian theme. An expected top lot is a large wood carving by the inventor and Canadian artist Yosef Drenters (1931-1983). Titled Mother and Child, the figural wood carving is 6 feet tall and has a pre-sale estimate of $12,000-$15,000. It was gifted by Drenters to the current owner in 1973. All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.
A rare, signed Canadian Wagner Ginger Beer bottle, stamped "Jos Wagner Maker Berlin Ont" just above the lower edge, 8 ½ inches tall, is expected to hammer for $5,000-$7,000. The same estimate has been assigned to a handle-less cup and saucer attributed to The William Eby Pottery (Conestoga, Ontario, 1855-1907), featuring a blue and green slip decoration over a lead glaze.

Also, A circa 1940 CBC Radio Canada sign, depicting the original logo for CBC Radio Canada from 1940-1958 and designed by Ecole des Beaux Arts student Hortense Binette, 61 inches by 48 inches, has an estimate of $1,500-$2,500.
A lovely Waterloo County painted corner cupboard made in Preston the second half of the 19th century and retaining its red and mustard grained painted finish, 40 inches tall by 81 inches wide, has a pre-sale estimate of $4,000-$6,000. Also, a decorated utility bowl attributed to the Pottery of Adam Biernstihl (Bridgeport, Ontario, 1867-1900), an earthenware bowl with a decoration of a bird pecking at feed in green slip over a buff base, should find a new owner for $1,500-$2,000.
The original artwork category is plentiful and will be led by an oil on canvas painting of a horse by the Canadian photographer and painter J. J.

An oil on canvas painting by Canadian artist Manly MacDonald (1889-1971), titled Spring Willows by a Mill, signed in the lower left corner and measuring 19 inches by 25 inches (sight) is expected to change hands for $3,500-$5,000; while an oil on canvas by Homer Watson (Canadian, 1855-1936), probably painted around 1910 near Kaufman Flats, Doon and titled Cattle by Stream in Woods, 16 inches by 12 inches (sight) has an estimate of $2,500-$3,500.
Rounding out the fine art category, a mixed media painting (including gouache and conte) on Crescent Illustration Board by Harold Town (Canadian, 1924-1990), signed and dated ("March 21, '78"), 15 inches by 15 inches (sight), should fetch $2,500-$3,500; and a Modernist abstract sculpture executed circa 1970 by Walter Yarwood (Canadian, 1917-1996), made from painted cast aluminum and on a wood base, 14 inches tall, signed, has an estimate of $2,000-$3,000.
