Online Auction - The Nasatir Estate

This is our second sale of the items rescued from our warehouse after the March 3rd tornado. We are selling the items for the Administrator of the Estate of Joan Valerie Nasatir. Luckily, the boxed items had not been unpacked yet, so those items survived the tornado. We are also selling furniture, sterling silver and crystal and some very important art pieces.  

Valerie was a food writer and a restaurant reviewer and her husband Mort was in the music industry. They met in 1953 in New York and married on Christmas Eve that year. Mort started his record industry career at Decca Records, later becoming Presidents of MGM Records, NARAS (Grammy's) and publisher of BILLBOARD Magazine. Mort and Valerie acquired some very nice items and we are pleased to conduct this online auction.

Works From the Private Collection of Paul Harmon Auction

 

Important message from Patti Baldini: Our building was destroyed by  the devastating tornado on March 3rd. However, over the course of the next 6 days, we managed to save quite a few key pieces of the artwork in this auction including the Bald Eagle painting signed by the seven astronauts of the Columbia. 

Franklin, Tennessee native Paul Harmon has hired us to sell art works from his private collection. Harmon is a Tennessee treasure with works on display across the world.

Our most prominent artwork piece is an original acrylic on paper. In 2003, before the launch of the ill-fated Columbia STS-107, Paul Harmon was asked to create an art image to commemorate the mission. We are selling the original and historic rare painting all of the astronauts signed before the Columbia disaster on February 1, 2003. This is an important offering not only because of its historic significance, but also because it survived the tornado. 

Perhaps Paul said it best:

 "My work is a personal journal of my life. It is therefore both serious and frivolous. Joyous and melancholic. Spiritual and erotic. The continuity is in the fact that it tracks a real life" 

You can find his books Crossing Borders and Inner Voices online. We are selling an autographed copy of each book in our auction, which also survived!

Nashville Tornado - March 3, 2020

Devastating Tornado Destroys Baldini Auction Facility...Time to Relocate

The following excerpt was written shortly after the March 3rd tornado in Nashville. In case you're wondering...YES we are still in business. Although we do not have a building, we can still come into your home or business to catalog and create our online catalog and produce a successful auction for you. So, call us if you need some help!

The Nashville tornado has been devastating and unforgiving for so many families and businesses across the Middle Tennessee area. Baldini Auction Company is no exception. Our building is a complete loss; however, we’re very lucky no-one was in the building when the tornado hit.

On a personal note, I have felt very devastated, displaced and in disbelief. My first image of the devastation was from this video my son-in-law shot. I was in shock. Other than my wonderful and loving family who will always come first, my business is my life-blood. I have been completely humbled by all of the love and support from my customers, clients, friends and auction family who have reached out to see if I needed help.

As soon as we could access the property, I took two of my fellow auctioneers, James and his son Joe Spencer along with Richard who works for a dear past client, to the site. These men were tossing cinder blocks like I toss sticks and they never complained. They are my truly my super heroes and I can’t thank them enough. Even through my tears they kept my spirits high. After some time, they created a walkway for me so I could safely navigate the area and identify salvageable items. We did manage to save some important files, some of the Paul Harmon art, and other items, and we drove away with three truckloads.

The next day, my girl squad of Marie, Mary Francis and Cyndi rescued more items. I couldn’t keep them away and I am thankful for their persistence and hard work. We safely rescued more items I never thought I would see again. I will post much more about this story in an upcoming blog along with some amazing photos from our recovery efforts.
