ALAMEDA, Calif. – Michaan’s will hold several auctions in December 2022, including two on Friday, December 16. The first is the annual Winter Fine Sale, which features fine art, jewelry and antiques, among them vintage Illums Bolighus furniture and a ring with a four-carat diamond. The second is the Coin Auction, which will showcase gold and silver U.S. coins. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Sculptures are represented in the auction lineup by Gloria Victis, a gilt and patinated bronze by Antonin Mercie (French, 1845-1916) that is estimated at $3,000-$5,000. Depicting an angel in flowing robes carrying a man, this sculpture makes an impressive silhouette and masterfully captures the motion of the scene.
