Paris Carousel Sale Catalogue - Marchal collection September 2011

Last few copies of the auction catalogue for the fabulous Paris Sale of Fabienne & Francois Marchal's Fairground Collection- September 28-29 2011.

François Marchal was a schoolteacher in Gerardmer in eastern France, who during the 60s and 70s assembled with the help of his wife Fabienne( who undertook most of the restoration of pieces), a unique collection of the rarest French animals and other fairground effects. The auction at the Drouot in Paris last year grossed over 3million euros and set new records for European carousel pieces. The beautifully produced hardback catalogue runs to 432 pages with mostly color photos of his entire collection interspersed with historic black & white photos of pieces in original situ. Francois sadly died shortly after the auction. I knew him well, had exchanged many pieces with him over the years and was at the sale as a buyer. I purchased the last few catalogues after it finished . Each catalogue includes a set of photocopied Results sheets. Postage via UPS to Europe & N.America is £22 or currency equivalent.
