Spring brings Kamelot’s Garden and Architectural Auction, April 24
Doors open at 9 a.m. Eastern on April 24 and bidding begins at 10 a.m. The public is invited to preview the items April 21-23.
“On the heels of Philadelphia’s Flower Show, our annual Antique Garden and Architectural Auction has become a springtime tradition here and is an established source for both professional and individual buyers across the country,” said Jeff Kamal, president and CEO of Kamelot Auction House. “The sale offers residential gardeners an opportunity to furnish their outdoor living areas with flair and originality, and offers professional designers and seasoned auction-goers rare and very special garden antiques.”
Kamelot Auctions’ 15,000-square-foot showroom is overflowing with unique displays of garden and architectural elements including antique and vintage carved stone planters, urns, fountains and statuary, fine bronze and ironwork furniture, outdoor fixtures, birdcages, stained glass, lighting and a large collection of industrial tables and vitrines.
This annual auction also promises a unique selection of antique architectural iron, including a heavy Furness-style four-paneled iron gate from the 19th century, and an iron balcony from France having exactly the same design as those displayed on the façade of the Louvre.
The auction also will include an exceptional and monumental antique American Victorian iron urn, an Oscar Bach marble and bronze conservatory table, a circa 1885 conservatory table marked “Perth Amboy Terra Cotta Co.,” a pair of 1920s bronze lidded urns on square bases, a pair of Grand Tour sienna marble columns, a Rosa Verona marble bench with lion-form bases, a large antique Colebrookdale verdigris bronze-clad urn, a pair of well-proportioned 19th-century lead putty figures and dozens of life-size marble, iron and bronze statues.
