Nye & CompanyTOP RATED
Nye & Company?s Wednesday, December 11th Estate Treasures Auction is bursting at the seams with nearly 800 lots of fine and decorative arts, so it will be split into two parts. A live auction, starting at 10 am Eastern, offers online, phone and in-person participation. Part II begins at 3 pm as an online-only format; bidding is available via LiveAuctioneers.com. Part I will be held online and in the Nye & Company gallery at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield. The auction pays homage to the man who is credited with designing some of the most pleasing interiors in America and is anchored by a large-format KPM porcelain plaque inspired by Peter Paul Rubens?s (Flemish, 1577-1640) 17th century painting Caccia al Leone (?The Lion Hunt?). A private collection from Westchester County, New York features a great deal of sterling silver and fine art. Of note are Tiffany's Persian and Chrysanthemum flatware patterns. Several oil and watercolor paintings depict bucolic New England landscapes and there are lovely portraits as well. The decorative arts include a Gothic desk garniture, a cast bronze polar bear cigar cutter and more. Also offered will be Part IV of the Myrna and Bernard Posner collection of silver and objets de vertu, featuring a selection of sterling silver jewelry and a Tiffany & Company monogrammed belt buckle. The Posners? silver collection consisted of objects that crossed all time periods and varied from decorative objects to more utilitarian pieces. Also sold will be some of the English and French case furniture the Posners. Additional consignments include Baroque style center tables, Georgian furniture, pewter and brass candlesticks, traditional rugs and contemporary upholstered seating furniture in traditional styles. The accessories are numerous and varied, with plenty of items that will be sure to catch the eye, notably the pebble-and-turtleback-glass window fitted as a side table attributed to Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company.
