Tom, I thank you for trying . My concern is no more people get burned. Selling and or Buying from them can put yourself and others in a bad light. I would like to see them caught and forced to make restitution. My own personal situation with this company may never result in any form of payment or return of Mdse. Just knowing they are out of business will make me happy.

Fred, Since you say my information is "useless" I've removed it from your Post. Good luck on finding these people.

Comment by Fred Silva on November 14, 2016 at 8:33am

Not sure if this can be posted here? This I found out Today. This is for all of us collectors who bought anything from Nette Auctions. 

Thank You 



For those forum members who are not aware of this, Nette Auctions closed their business and emptied their warehouse in the middle of the night on Tuesday  November 1st. All phones have been disconnected, including cell phones numbers of the owners. A sign was placed on the door stating "do to unforeseen circumstances we are closing are business."  No forwarding address or contact numbers. An e-mail address was left.

Needless to say they have left many clients unpaid from previous auctions, including a friends widow who auctioned his collection with them and never received payment. The auction was in March of this year. I was not aware she had not been paid till Saturday. To say I was upset when she called and told me she hadn't been paid was the understatement of the year.

I had recommended Nette because I had done business with them two years before and had not had any problems or heard of any problems.  Up until early October they had been running many auctions online thru Live Auctioneers and at their business showroom in Danbury, Connecticut.

My friends widow is now out the collection and the money. From what I have found out so far in my research she is not alone. There are many people who have complained to the better business bureau on the length of time it took to get paid. Also their are collections that were to to auctioned that have now disappeared.

Any member on the forum that has any information or can offer any help to those who are a victim of this company I would greatly appreciate it.

BOO! and goodnight.

Kat, whenever you make a mistake you can click the Bold blue "X" in right margin and it goes away.

Comment by Kat Miller on October 29, 2016 at 10:47pm

Thank you, Tom! That gives me a very good start on what I should do an internet comparative search on. Much appreciation.

Comment by tomsantiquesetcetera on October 28, 2016 at 12:01am

It looks like it's made of resin, impact molded. Rococo style. Dual cameos (relief). Very nice.  This technology came on the market in the 1950s-60s and continues to this day. Couldn't find any comparables like yours to determine value. Lots of Rococo style mirrors on line; prices range from $50. to $500. USD.  I'd GUESS yours is towards the high end.

Comment by Kat Miller on October 27, 2016 at 8:19pm

I inherited a storage locker of items. This mirror is one of many vintage/antique/collectables. It's approx 6 feet wide and 4'3" high. Any insights are appreciated. Thanks.

I found this beautiful piece of pottery and I heard something inside of it. I dumped it out and it was a bone (could be somebody was too lazy to put it in the trash,idk)!  I have no idea if it is old or new. It had black worn out felt  on the bottom that I tore off. It says "Made In Italy" and something else that I can't make out. It's 10 1/2" tall. Does anyone recognize what this is? 

Comment by Betty Proper on October 6, 2016 at 6:38am

Tom, "unless it has been rewired" is my whole point: Lamps may be rewired.  Thus, a "newer" cord/plug does not provide a definitive answer as to the age of an electrical appliance of any sort.  Other details, such as the ones that you pointed out about this lamp, must be used in age determination.
