Tonya Cameron’s June 7 sale: Tiffany gold to the Lone Ranger’s Silver
SAUGUS, Mass. – Tonya A. Cameron Auctioneers will bring estate decorative art and quality vintage collectibles to the auction block on Tuesday, June 7, in a 291-lot- sale featuring Internet live bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com.
A diverse mix, the auction inventory includes fine and contemporary art, bronzes, lighting, sterling silver and clocks, as well as European and American porcelain and a selection of American and Continental furniture. A host of decorative accessories from fine New England homes rounds out the art-related offerings.
Two bonus categories have been added to the sale: ship models and nautical charts and maps; and toys, including an excellent collection of early Lone Ranger collectibles.
Jewelry is a category for which Tonya A. Cameron has become well known, especially after her hugely successful spring sale featuring vintage pieces by Chanel and other coveted brands. The June 7 auction contains a beautiful selection of both estate and costume jewelry, with highlights including a Tiffany 14K gold and diamond “bee” pendant. It is estimated at $400-$600.
Artworks are led by a George Lance oil on canvas still life, 21 x 17 inches, est. $2,500-$3,500; and a Victor Dubeuil, trompe l’oeil oil on canvas, 8 x 10 inches, est. $4,000-$6,000.
Decorative art highlights include a luxe 19th-century lapis lazuli clock with jeweled and pate-sur-pate face dial, est. $3,000-$5,000; and a French Sevres gilt ormolu porcelain-top table, 30 inches tall by 19 inches wide, est. $3,000-$6,000.
Several ship models are to be auctioned, each entered with a very affordable presale estimate. A planked model of a fishing schooner, 29 x 30 inches, is expected to make $150-$200.
Estates and private collections were the sources of the many desirable tin toys and Western items cataloged in the June 7 sale. A black Americana favorite, a Ham and Sam “The Minstrel Team” tinplate windup toy could reach $400-$800.
An original 1940s Lone Ranger and Silver punch-out book is estimated at $500-$800; while a complete Lone Ranger Frontier Land in very nice condition carries an estimate of $300-$500.
