Decorative Arts, Jewelry And Premium Silver

Saturday, June 16th at 11:00 am The Saturday auction is a prize for the collector of 19th century works, featuring Japanese Satsuma pottery, silhouettes with named artists and sitters, and a variety of blown glass. However, the sale is not lacking for the modern, and features brand names in the form of furniture and fashion with pieces by John Hutton, Victor Magistretti, and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, as well as Salvatore Ferragamo, Hermes, and Barry Kieselstein-Cord. The porcelain selection sports full services by Lenox in the patterns ?Gold Wheat? and ?Stanford?, which complements the single, hand-painted works of the porcelain artist George Leykauf. The brilliant selection of Waterford shows stemware in the patterns of ?Colleen?, ?Lismore?, ?Alana?, and ?Castletown?, which could easily accompany any number of the silver flatware offered. After exhaustive research, the silhouettes were attributed to their rightful artists and sitters, including the works of Auguste Edouart, John Wass, and Isaac Todd depicting general surgeons, merchants, and family members. Saturday also features a wide variety of Native American art in the form of prints, pottery, and weavings with works attributed to the individual artists and their tribes.
