March 7 - The Naomi Lindstrom Bead Collection

Naomi Lindstrom (1924-2014) was a collector of the purest sense. A longtime flight attendant for Pan Am, she traveled the world rubbing elbows with sheiks and presidents, all the while collecting what she loved along the way. What has been described as the most significant collection of world beads in the United States, international and ancient pieces from her prized bead accumulation will now be offered at Michaan?s Auctions on March 7, 2016. Ms. Lindstrom?s passions lead to a respected knowledge, as she conducted bead lectures in both London and New York, exhibited at the San Francisco Museum of Craft and served as a docent for over twenty-five years at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum. Accompanying the bead collection at auction will be additional selections from her one-of-a-kind, single owner collection. The offering presents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own rare and beautiful items such as fine Song dynasty porcelains as well as oceanic and pre-Columbian figures.
