Palm Beach Antique to Modern Estate Auction
Neely Auction will be holding their Winter Palm Beach Antique to Modern Estate Auction on Sunday, January 27th at 12pm. The sale will feature 258 lots of furnishings, fine art, sculpture, decor, lighting and sterling silver. As always, some truly unique finds accompany more commonly sought after designs. Some one-of-a-kind finds include a 19th century gynecological exam table, a portable apothecary cabinet, 1940's steel lap guitar attributed to Hank Williams as Hank the Drifter, 1940's to 1970's American Western film posters, and a 1930's "Mountain Man" nickel slot machine. Sculptural styles to suit every taste include American bronzes by Herb Mignery, hammered copper avian sculptures by Roy Butler, Sergio Bustamante's whimsical cubism, brutalist wall art by Curtis Jere, and a realistic sculpture of a woman by Mark Sijan. Porcelain Lladro figurines, Murano art glass, French bronzes, and a large bronze, nearly life-sized horse statue will be sold to the highest bidder. Furniture designers include Paul Evans, Milo Baughman, Maitland Smith, Karl Springer, Falster Mobelfabrik Denmark, Enrique Garcel and Palecek. Unsigned pieces such as Thebes style chairs and Hollywood Regency style mirrors and seating are not to be missed. Formal French, Italian and American furnishings to be sold are a compliment to a more traditional home. Fine art by Bill Mack, Gino Hollander, Losi Cinello, Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnson for Disney, Maurice Meyer, Chuck Jones for Warner Bros Inc, Manuel Munoz Ruiz, Jack Leyine, and more. Diminutive portraits on porcelain, dimensional dioramas made with Victorian lace, and oriental decorated plaques are among the unexpected pieces of art.

Foreign currency will also be auctioned.
