Specialists of the South lines up prominent estates for auction Aug. 1
PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Over 300 mostly fresh to the market lots from prominent local estates, in a wide range of categories, will come up for bid in an auction slated for Saturday, Aug. 1, by The Specialists of the South Inc., at the firm’s gallery located at 544 E. Sixth St. The action will commence at 8 a.m. Central time.
LiveAuctioneers.com will provide absentee and Internet live bidding.
Offered will be chinoiserie decorative pieces, Art Deco-style furniture, English and French-style furniture, painted furniture, original and limited-edition artwork and five antique snuff bottles.
Furniture items of note will include a pair of Bibendum chairs (above) in the design of Eileen Gray and four Lugano armchairs by Mariani for Pace (below).
Headlining the auction is the living estate of William B. Schneider Sr., whose great-grandfather, a German immigrant named Gustav Bittner, operated a highly successful cabinet making shop in Louisville, Ky., beginning in 1854 and lasting well into the 20th century. Many items in the sale have descended through the family from that time.
The artworks, some beautifully framed, will include around a dozen original oil paintings in varying sizes by Susan F. Greaves (Amereican, b. 1944) and a large limited-edition figural artist’s proof serigraph by Isaac Tarkay (Serbia/Israeli, 1935-2012).
