HADDONFIELD, N.J. -- A grand dining room overlooking the fairways of Tavistock Country Club became an antique appraisal shop and auction house Friday night as the Camden County Historical Society staged its Special Evening of Antiques for the benefit of its educational programs and in tribute to long-time board member, Haddonfield's Richard H. Hineline. Society president Richard Pillatt discusses two of the rare World War I posters that were among the auction's offerings. Also see larger photo

Peacock Clock
Local resident Lynn Dalton gets an appraisal of one of two early 20th-century peacock night lights she owns. The large night lights, once common in the 1920s and 30s, are now rare. This one of brass and crystal was, according to the appraiser, in extremely good conditon and worth about $1,200 (See larger photo). Readying their own items for appraisal line are Janet Ganther of Pine Hill, Cheryl McClain of Somerdale and Carol Schell of Gloucester Township.

The room
The evening included dinner as well as the antique appraisals, auction and gift shop sale in the Coulter Room. The far glass walls look out on the rolling links of the one of the region's most renowned golf courses. See larger photo
