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.

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.
