The sale includes a complete Bedford New York estate along with several partial contents from Dutchess and Westchester Counties. The Bedford estate had been owned by a German lapidary who collected oriental carpets, paintings and other interesting objects. A relative had been an architect, artist and furniture designer in Germany and the auction will offer several exceptional items all by master craftsman Hans Reul. Approximately 30 estate rugs will begin the sale followed by several groups of paintings including works by Morgan Colt, Augusto Diani, Frederick Waugh and others. A collection of Chinese porcelains, scrolls and bronzes, Japanese Satsuma, paintings and other Asian lots will follow by several blocks of silver. Leading the silver offerings is a rare Southern sterling tea set signed 'H' for Adolph Himmel and stamped Hyde and Goodrich New Orleans. A very large and heavy English sterling reticulated basket by Edward Barnard and Sons, some Judaica, a few Russian pieces, several flatware sets including an exceptionally large and fine hand hammered 800 set, a Royal Danish acorn set and other silver lots will be sold. A selection of signed art glass including small cabinet pieces by Durand, Galle, Tiffany as well as a Tiffany linenfold bronze floor lamp, several signed 19th and 20th century bronzes and a collection of antique gilt picture frames will follow a lot of ten Len Prince and other original photographic prints. Traditional Kittinger mahogany, French Provincial and other continental furniture will probably be eclipsed by the interesting offering of Mid Century pieces including makers and designers Vladimir Kagan, George Tanier, Willy Rizzo for Pierre Cardin, T.H Robsjons-Gibbons for Widdicomb, G. Nakashima and others. A fine polychrome Northwest Coast totem with some age, several carved stone Canadian figures and two exceptionally long skrimmed walrus tusks will be offered and followed by an excellent collection of antique hand colored maps.
