There is a flurry activity right now around an auction item on eBay with the simple title of "antique carved folk art dog". Obviously by looking at the carving, the speculation is that it is a heretofore undiscovered work by either Wilhelm Schimmel or Aaron Mountz (a real expert could tell, but I always get them confused! Personally, I feel the market for both are more than a little overinflated, but that's just my opinion...) Fueling the fire is that the eBay seller is listed in PA, where both worked I understand.
Seems like the right collectors have caught on to it fairly quickly as it has already been bid up to almost $ 2,000.00 within the first day of the initial listing. Will be interesting to see where it finally lands at.
Update: Sold for $ 4,329.98!
