Emerald eyes adorn the Van Cleef and Arpels lion's head brooch, set throughout with fine diamonds. Also in the November sale: estate furniture, Asian art and fine paintings such as "Man with Cockerel" by Fernando Amorsolo. Photographs by Edward and Brett Weston will be offered, as will etchings by Picasso and Diebenkorn and mixographs by Rufino Tamayo.
