WOOLWICH — A collection of rare and unusual items never before placed on the market will be made available at a public auction to benefit Chop Point School at 2 p.m. Sunday, with public viewing beginning at 12:30 p.m.

There will also be a 50-50 raffle, and a raffle of live lobsters. The snack bar will be open and serving lobster rolls, refreshments and more.

The estate collection arrived from Texas and includes an eclectic variety of one-of-kind items. Highlighted among the objects offered is the “Wooten Desk,” widely considered the epitome of desk design and construction upon its introduction in the late 19th-century. The main body of the desk is filled with several dozen small drawers and nooks for papers and small objects. The desk is closed by two massive hinged panels that are as deep as the desk itself, and also filled with even more small drawers and nooks of all sizes.

Rounding out the collection is an array of country and formal furniture (including two interesting Scandinavian beds), tools, safes, a rare antique barber’s chair, spy-era gadgets, radios, unique glassware, china, artwork and more.

There is no “buyer’s premium” and items are sold without reserve, with few exceptions.

This one-time offering is assembled to benefit Chop Point School, a K-12, interdenominational school set on a 55-acre campus bordered by Merrymeeting Bay. The auction will take place in the Tawara Gym on the school’s campus, 425 Chopps Point Road.
