Following the whimsical fairy lamps are curated lots of European and American silver, including an impressive Tane Orfebres sterling tea set, a selection of estate Oriental rugs, Asian porcelain and decorative arts, and a mixture of modern and traditional fine furniture. The auction also showcases fine jewelry in a variety of mediums, highlighted by a charming 18KT gold strawberry brooch laden with rubies and diamonds.
