Lambertville, NJ: On Saturday, June 16 and Sunday, June 17, 2012 at 11 a.m., the Rago Arts and Auction Center will auction an impressive collection of 20th century furnishings and decorative arts. Among the 1,100 lots are hard-to-find and one-of-a-kind pieces, many coming to us straight from the artists or craftsmen themselves. Day one of the sale consists of Arts & Crafts pottery and furnishings, early 20th century glass, metalwork and prints, concluding with 20th c. ceramics. Day two consists of mid-20th-21st c. modern furnishings, art glass, fine art (including impressive sculpture), lighting, jewelry, tapestries and much more, all by famous makers and designers.
“Every sale finds its own personality,” says David Rago. “This one is particularly rich in glass, from early enameled Gallé to a large collection of Lalique vessels, statuettes, and perfume bottles and many fine examples by contemporary artists such as Toots Zynsky. The auction also includes several important Tiffany lamps, among the best we’ve ever offered, important studio furniture and art pottery.”
