Von Dutch, 'Big Daddy' Ed Roth in Auction
Thursday, November 10, 2011
You don't run into a Rickman every day, let alone one pinstriped by the master himself, Von Dutch. That makes this one virtually priceless if you're a fan.
Are you a fan of Von Dutch and “Big Daddy” Ed Roth? Who isn’t? Then pay attention. A bunch of Von Dutch and “Big Daddy” originals are up for auction this weekend at Bonhams’ Classic California Sale.
A variety of items are going on the block, from motorcycles like a Von Dutch Bonny and Rickman to classic Roth illustrations like the Mustanger and the Rat Fink. There’s plenty more cool stuff, too, from a Sturm Ruger Mark I pistol customized by Von Dutch to personal items. Many of these will be available to the buying public for the very first time. How cool would it be to have an original Ed Roth drawing in your office or shop? It’d be too freakin’ cool.
Long live 'Big Daddy' Ed Roth.
If you’re interested, get over to the Petersen Automotive Museum this Saturday for Bonhams’ Classic California Sale. But bring your checkbook or your platinum card, ‘cuz I saw the estimated values on some of these pieces and they aren’t going to come cheap. Hard to put a price though on work that might be recreated but can never be duplicated as Von Dutch and Ed Roth were a breed apart.
