Millea to auction selections from Doris Duke Estate, Nov. 21-22
MADISON, N.J. – The New Jersey auction house Millea Bros. has announced it will conduct a second auction featuring property from the Doris Duke Estate, as well as other consignors, on Nov. 21 and 22 at the Morristown Armory in Morristown, N.J. The 980-lot sale consists of Asian, Modern design and couture on day one and fine and decorative arts on day two. Internet live bidding will be through LiveAuctioneers.com during both sessions.
Last May 2nd and 3rd, Millea Bros. auctioned a diverse array of art and antiques from the Doris Duke Estate in an 850-lot sale. All of the articles auctioned came from Ms. Duke’s principal residence, the New Jersey country property Duke Farms. The variety and global nature of the auction contents revealed their owner to have been not only a discriminating collector but also an open-minded individual.
“She was interested in different cultures of the world, not just the traditional English and European pieces,” Millea Bros.’ co-owner Michael Millea told Auction Central News prior to the May event. “With the money she had, she was a world traveler in a time when traveling for a woman was not as easy as it is today.”
A full preview of Millea’s Nov. 21-22 auction will appear soon on Auction Central News. To contact Millea Bros., call 973-377-1500. The fully illustrated catalog is available to preview online at www.LiveAuctioneers.com. Sign up now to bid absentee or live via the Internet during the sale.
