William "Bill" Knight and Glyneth (Armstrong) Knight
Mr. Knight had a distinguished career in the S&L Business.
Mrs. Knight was the daughter of the Armstrongs who built the Lubbock landmark mansion "Tara" at 4th & Slide. The home was later a restaurant and then morphed into the headquarters of oil tycoon Rip Griffin. In 2009 the home was cut in two and moved away in order to expand Slide Road into the northern part of Lubbock.
Sale was held May 18-22, 2014.
Access to the Past teamed up with Anderson Bros. Jewelers to bring you a sale like nothing you ever experienced before. All of the personal property, much of it from the Tara mansion, was sold in the estate sale we conducted.
All of the fine jewelry was sold at Anderson Bros. store in Kingsgate South, located at Quaker & 82nd Streets.
The selection in the home was unbelievable, with fine American Brilliant cut glass, RS Prussia, Havilland Limoges porcelain china, Copeland Spode china, crystal lamps, Victorian and French furniture, Victorian lamps, German grandfather clocks, fine linens, Murano glass from Venice, pottery and porcelain from Italy, Germany and Austria, Victorian bedroom furniture, French bedroom furniture, beautiful Christmas decor, Lalique, Baccarat, Wallace Stradivari sterling flatware, Towle Old Master sterling flatware, two sterling tea/coffee services, silverplate serving pieces, Lladro, Hummels, porcelain birds, Limoges fish platter & 12 plates.
Also fine costume jewelry (in the home), very nice men's clothing XL, 11 1/2 B alligator shoes, ties, belts, etc. Giant heirloom quality triple bookcase unit with storage cabinets beneath, vanity, small swivel vanity chair, fireplace accessories, Hammond C-2 organ with JR-20 tone cabinet from late 1940's, kitchen table with lever to adjust from table height to coffee table height, Russian Santa Claus, love seats, sofas, French chairs in various sizes and configurations, crystal-enveloped floor lamps, fine oil paintings by Chrisman, Blackman, Mote, and others. Beautiful kitchen items, sterling candelabra sets, giant 6' long by 7' tall Henredon painted curio with 1/2" plate glass shelves and overhead lighting (full of eye candy items), Victorian chairs, plant stands, paintings on porcelain, and many other items hand-selected from around the world accumulated over two lifetimes.
Working with the gracious heirs, as well as with Anderson Bros. was a rewarding experience and highlight of my career. Putting together a sale of this magnitude is no easy task, and my sincere thanks go to my fine crew who labored tirelessly over four weeks to bring this all together. We also thank you, our many fine customers, who provided new homes for all these treasures.
