This critically acclaimed, historically significant collection of controversial racial depictions of African-Americans is set to be available for sale by noted collector and scholar, sociologist Jan Faulkner.  Since 1954 this collection has grown to include hundreds of items – most in mint condition.  Each item in the collection was hand selected, researched and documented by Faulkner.

In 1982 and 2000 this rare collection was exhibited at the Berkeley Art Center and the Macon, Georgia Art Museum, establishing its importance in the historical arena. An award-winning documentary on this controversial subject matter was produced by Marlon Riggs in 1984 and international research continues on its sociological impact on contemporary life.

The February sale will include many functional, museum quality items:  cookie jars, tobacco tins, toys, lamps, kitchenware (shakers, utensils, fabric items) etc.   Many are extremely rare and some never before shown in public.  Many items were produced in the U.S. by noted artists, illustrators and manufacturers and the prices are firm.

In the first of several public sales, this rare offer provides a special opportunity for history buffs, collectors, sociologists and educators to obtain a unique piece of important history.
