Sterling silver Georg Jensen brooch, Design 20, estimated at $600-$700 at Jasper52.

Shimmering Splendor: Silver and Gold Auction set for New York June 19

NEW YORK – On Wednesday, June 19, beginning at 5 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will conduct a sale titled Shimmering Splendor: Silver and Gold Auction. Its 152 lots almost exclusively showcase those precious metals in pieces by brand-name jewelers and houses. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

It’s no surprise, then, given the sale title, that the trio of highlights all feature silver and gold. These include a large sterling silver pendant, made in 1939 by Svend Weihrauch for Frantz Hingelberg, estimated at $600-$700. Hingelberg was founded in 1897 in Arhus, Denmark; Weihrauch joined the firm in 1928 as its artistic director and workshop manager, and his leadership put it on the map. The pendant, which has a floral design, is described as being in ‘perfect condition’.

Representing the most popular colors in gold is a circa-1970s Cartier Trinity ring in size 6. The ‘Trinity’ name reflects the fact that the ring consists of three fused bands of 18K gold: one yellow, one white, and one rose. It carries an estimate of $1,500-$2,500.

And the final prize is a silver brooch by the venerable Danish silversmith Georg Jensen, which has an estimate of $600-$700. The undated piece, which has an Art Nouveau design of interlocking leaves, is identified as Jensen’s Design 20 and is stated to be in ‘excellent condition’.
