January 20th, 2021 Estate Treasures Auction

Nye & Company Auctioneers, two-day, Estate Treasures auction, featuring property from the Siegmund collection of folk art and the Steve and Stephanie Alpert collection, will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 20th & 21st. The auction is packed with a variety of property from private collections, with an emphasis on American and English furniture, folk art and self-taught/outsider art, American paintings, Chinese works of art and silver and jewelry. This sale will feature a selection of self-taught art from primarily Southwestern artists such as Felipe and Leroy Archuleta, Leroy Ortega and Felix Lopez, and modern furniture from the artist Pedro Friedeberg. The Siegmund collection is a terrific assemblage of folk art objects. For those who prefer traditional decorative arts, there is a superb collection of English and Irish furniture from the estate of Robert K. Johnson of Maine and South Carolina. Headlining the collection are three lots of George II Anglo-Chinese huanghuali chairs, possibly from a set supplied to Sir Henry Gough, an extremely successful merchant who traded with India and China. Nye & Company is pleased to be offering some additional property from the estate of William Hodgins, the highly regarded Boston-based interior designer. There is a wonderful selection of Modern furniture, including a set of four Robert Venturi "Chippendale" chairs for Knoll. Folk art portraiture includes works by Micah Williams, John Paradise, Deacon Robert Pecham, William Kennedy and others. Works are delightfully done by painters such as Everett Shin, John Traynor, Joseph Barrett, Henry Bertoia and Peter Moran. There is also an exceptional double portrait of the brothers, Sheldon and Adelbert Niles Potter, painted by William Worcester Churchill (1858-1926). Part II of a New Jersey private Short Hills and San Francisco collector includes multiple pieces by designer Marco Bicago, David Yurman, Roberto Coin and Tiffany.
