STILLWATER, Minn. – Jay Anderson Auction’s 22nd annual New Year’s Eve auction will begin with more than 170 lots of Asian art and antiques to be followed by about 300 lots of Victorian, country, fine art, lighting, mirrors, clocks, formal, oak furniture, rugs and glass. The auction will begin Saturday, Dec. 31, at 8 a.m. Central, which will be in prime time for Internet bidders in Singapore, noted auctioneer Jay Anderson.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

Of great interest early will be a fine 26-inch Chinese carved ivory warrior/deity, which has a $3,000-$5,000 estimate.

A pair of carved ivory elephant tusks that depict 20 human figures in each has already attracted multiple bids. Standing nearly 4 feet high, the pair has a $5,000-$10,000 estimate.

Anderson expects to be finished with the Asian art by 10 a.m. and that many more highlight will follow.

A highly carved rosewood and marble-top hall tree by Cincinnati’s Mitchell & Rammelsberg should earn $6,000-$9,000. Topped by a carved stag head, the hall tree stands 108 inches high. In original finish, it also features fine leaf and oak branch carving and shell pans.

Because the reverse-painted Exeter-style shade on the signed Pairpoint table lamp is in mint condition—no chips—bidding could exceed the $1,500-$2,500 estimate.

Clock collectors will compete for an 1880s New Haven No. 10 Jeweler’s Regulator in good running condition. Its walnut case measures 77 1/2 inches high and 16 1/2 inches wide. It has a $2,500-$3,500 estimate.

The auction will take place at the National Guard Armory, 107 Chestnut St. E., in Stillwater.
