GLEN COVE, N.Y. – Roland Auctions NY will present its latest in a summer series of specially-curated multi-estate auctions on Saturday, September 10 at 10 am Eastern time. The sale features hundreds of lots of fine and contemporary art, silver, decorative arts, unique Asian items, antique and vintage furniture, rugs, jewelry and lighting. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.
The auction features a strong emphasis on fine and contemporary art, led by a Ker-Xavier Roussel (French, 1867-1944) impressionist painting of nudes in a river landscape setting titled Baigneuses (Bathers). The unsigned, circa-1906-1907 work is estimated at $20,000-$30,000.
Also featured is a Leopold Schmutzler (German, 1864-1941) oil on panel, Woman with Rose. It is signed at the upper right and estimated at $4,000-$7,000. It is offered alongside another Leopold Schmutzler oil on board painting of a girl at a well, which has an identical estimate.
In addition, a lot of attention will be on the Pierre-Auguste Renoir (French, 1841-1919) second plate 1897 lithograph Le Chapeau Epingle (Pinning the Hat), from the edition of 100 printed in black (there is also an edition of 50 printed in sanguine as well as an edition of 50 printed in brown). It carries an estimate of $4,000-$6,000.
Highlights from the furniture choices include a Paul Evans Cityscape Mid-century Modern sculptural two-door wall-mounted sideboard, having brass and walnut juxtaposed dimensional elements and a black lacquer top. Each door folds open and both interior door panels are marked “PE-380.” The Paul Evans sideboard is estimated at $6,500-$8,000.
Fine silver and decorative items are always a favorite at Roland, with this month’s standout being a Buccellati sterling silver centerpiece comprising two shell-form dishes centered with dolphin-form handles. It weighs 56 troy ounces and is marked to the base “Sterling 925.” Its estimate is $7,000-$9,000.
Rounding out the top lots is a pair of late 19th-century bronze Dore allegorical female figures on marble bases. They are depicted clad in partial gilt robes and standing on a serpent and a turtle, respectively. Signed Boaret, the pair is estimated at $3,000-$4,000.
