CLARKSTON, Mich. – The ice bucket will be chilled and the hors d’oeuvres will be waiting for a virtual cocktail party on December 6th. That’s when Chamberlain’s Auction Gallery will be hosting its Holiday Champagne Auction, with Internet live bidding through LiveAuctioneers. A 233-lot evening event commencing at 7 p.m. Eastern, the auction will feature a carefully chosen selection of exquisite antiques and vintage collectibles whose quality would please even the most discriminating collector

Among the highlights to be auctioned are 19th-century French clocks, a pair of signed Tiffany & Co. Favrile candlestick lamps (est. $3,000-$4,000), Pairpoint lamps, and fine 19th-century furniture. A circa-1770 George III green and gilt japanned long-case clock is signed on its face: “Robert Gratrese, London.” It is estimated at $7,000-$9,000.

An array of 18th and 19th-century paintings will cross the auction block at Chamberlain’s, including a David Burliuk (Ukranian, 1882-1967) oil on board titled “Flowers.” It measures 24 by 20 inches and is estimated at $7,000-$9,000. Another top painting is a signed, 26½ by 14¼ in Vincente Palmaroli (Italian, 1834-1896) oil on board titled “Beautiful Woman.” Estimate: $5,000-$6,000. An outstanding 19th-century Italian hand-carved wood sculpture with pedestal of a nude, titled “Figure Seated on Dragon,” stands 63½ inches tall. It is expected to make $5,000-$6,000.

A stocking stuffer no lady would refuse is the pair of 18K white gold drop earrings with snakelike pave-diamond dangles grasping two large rubies with a total ruby weight of 11.59 carats. The estimate on these most unusual earrings is $17,000-$19,000.
