Boston museum has a hand in Ancient Resource LLC sale Sept. 18
GLENDALE, Calif. – Ancient Resource LLC will hold its fifth Ancient and Pre-Columbian Antiquities sale on Saturday, Sept 18. LiveAuctioneers will provide the exclusive bidding service for this Internet only auction.
The auction will feature goods from ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece as well as other Classical Ancient and Pre-Columbian cultures. Highlights include a collection of ancient Roman glass deaccessioned from the Boston Museum of Art; a wonderfully preserved Egyptian mummy hand; and a rare collection of Hellenistic and later terracotta and limestone molds. While these remarkable pieces are rare, they are expected to sell for reasonable prices.
Classical items are consigned from the collection of Cecil Best, a collector from the UK, who sought out many fine works of art in the 1920s through the 1950s. Fine bronzes, faience and wooden artifacts were all represented in his collection.
Rounding out the classical lots is a fine assortment of jewelry from the Egyptian through the Roman periods. All necklaces and rings retain their beauty and are wearable to this day.
A lovely collection of polychrome, stone and pottery Pre-Columbian artifacts, figures and jewelry will also be presented.
Live Internet bidding will commence at 11 a.m. Pacific. More information can be found at the Web site, www.AncientResourceAuctions.com, and bids can be placed through its LiveAuctioneers catalog at https://www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/22469 .
