Tom Ford for Gucci sterling silver handcuffs lead our five lots to watch

Tom Ford for Gucci sterling silver handcuffs

MIAMI – Probably the most bizarre and controversial item to ever bear the Gucci name comes to market Tuesday, February 20 at Pandora Auctions.

Maurizio Gucci (1948-1995) was the scion and heir to the Gucci fortune created by his grandfather Guccio Gucci (1881-1953). In 1970, Maurizio met Patrizia Martinelli at a party and the couple soon wed, with Patrizia becoming a socialite in New York City thereafter. Eventually the couple returned to Milan, with Maurizio straying from the bonds of marriage. In 1985, he announced their marriage was coming to an end. Patrizia divorced Maurizio in 1994 and was awarded annual alimony of $1.47 million. But when she discovered her ex-husband was planning to remarry – which would have halved her court-ordered alimony under Italian law – she engaged a broke and desperate pizzeria owner to murder Maurizio, which the man carried out in 1995.

She was arrested and convicted in 1998, receiving a 29-year sentence for her role in Maurizio’s death. As a macabre nod to these events, Gucci – under the creative direction of designer Tom Ford – released a solid sterling silver pair of handcuffs, marked GUCCI and MADE IN ITALY. Clearly a nod to Patrizia’s conviction, the handcuffs were displayed in Gucci boutiques worldwide. It is unclear how many sets were made, but when they come to auction, they perform admirably. Pandora estimates this pair at $25,000-$50,000.

1960s Cartier Owl-Form Bejeweled Pin

LINCOLN PARK, N.J. – The animal-themed jewels that proved so popular in the Victorian era enjoyed several revivals in the 20th century. The Art Nouveau movement found much of its inspiration in the forms and lines of nature, while the Art Deco period ushered in Cartier’s famous big cats. And in the post-war era, there was a much more whimsical menagerie, inspired by the cartoons of Warner Brothers’ Looney Tunes and Walt Disney. If jewelry had hitherto sought to impress, imply status, and convey meaning, these were simply worn to bring a smile.

After falling from fashion, 1960s animal pins and other related novelties are, like so much retro chic, now back on point. This signed Cartier owl pin in 18K gold with a turquoise body, diamond-festooned feet, and sapphire eyes will be offered at Willow Auction House on Thursday, February 22 with an estimate of $3,000-$4,000. It is part a sale featuring more than 400 lots from the estate of New Jersey collector Angela Gross Folk.

Mid-1930s Political Poster for Huey P. Long-affiliated Candidates

NEW ORLEANS – Huey P. Long (1893-1935) was and remains a controversial figure in American politics, a political power story unlike any other. His fiery brand of Southern populism led to his election as governor of Louisiana, and ultimately to the United States Senate, before dying from internal bleeding after being shot by a disgruntled relative of a local judge gerrymandered out of his reelection chances.

Born impoverished in the hinterlands of northern Louisiana, Long passed the bar and practiced law largely on behalf of the poor before running for office. His meteoric rise to power remains unparalleled in American politics, characterized by his impassioned speeches on behalf of the disempowered and destitute. Long helped secure Franklin Roosevelt’s 1932 presidential victory by building a coalition of Southern Democrats, but was snubbed by the Roosevelt Administration, perhaps in recognition of Long’s potential as a political opponent in future elections.

Following Long meant believing in Longism – his radical populism that relied on the government to provide assistance to the downtrodden in society. Louisiana politics splintered into two factions: Longism and Anti-Longism. Many pro-Long candidates were well-supported by his political machine, as seen in this mid-1930s political poster coming up for bid at Neal Auction Company on Tuesday, February 20. Long had been assassinated in 1935, some months before the poster was printed, and Oscar K. Allen had died of a brain hemorrhage shortly after winning the special election to replace Long in the U.S. Senate. Other Long-aligned figures appear on the poster, including his brother Earl Long (then the state lieutenant governor). In rough but presentable shape and framed, the poster carries an estimate of $600-$800.

Seven-volume ‘The Birds of America’ by John James Audubon

John James Audubon’s ‘The Birds of America’ seven-volume set dating to 1840-1844, estimated at $20,000-$30,000 at Brunk Auctions.
John James Audubon’s ‘The Birds of America’ seven-volume set dating to 1840-1844, estimated at $20,000-$30,000 at Brunk Auctions.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – Legendary naturalist and ornithologist John James Audubon (1785-1851) had an affinity for birds even as a boy, and as a young man declared that he would illustrate every bird in North America – no mean feat. He developed a system of wires to pose deceased bird specimens as he painted them, then worked with assistants to add background vegetation imagery for the completed work.

The Birds of America was first published as a series in sections between 1827 and 1838, in Edinburgh and London, and was sold by subscription. It was printed by Robert Havell Sr. and Robert Havell Jr., resulting in this first set being known as the Havell Edition. It was oversized and printed on handmade paper.

As Audubon’s work became more widely known, later editions emerged, such as one coming up for sale at Brunk Auctions on Wednesday, February 21. Published By J.J. Audubon and J.B. Chevalier between 1840 and 1844, its seven volumes hold 500 lithographs, and each volume includes Audubon’s list of subscribers. They are bound in three-quarter dark green leather over marbled boards, with gilt lettering and spine decoration. Coming from the North Carolina estate of Barbara Chatham, the seven-volume set is estimated at $20,000-$30,000.

AUSTIN, Texas – A United States 50-star flag that had been flying on the morning of September 11, 2001 when two commercial airliners struck both World Trade Center towers will be offered at Austin Auction Gallery on SundayFebruary 25.

Discovered by an unknown first responder, the flag was recovered at the World Trade Center complex in the rubble near WTC Building 3, then known as The Marriott World Trade Center and originally the Vista Hotel. The flag was then signed by numerous first responders, many including their unit names and badge numbers, along with then-Mayor of New York City Rudy Giuliani, who signed during an inspection tour of the carnage.

The flag is clearly tattered and retains gray matter from the debris plume created by the collapsing skyscrapers. Measuring 44 by 73.25in, the flag carries an estimate of $10,000-$20,000.

WINDSOR, Conn. – Among the most contested lots at Nadeau’s January 1 sale was a set of miniature watercolor and gouache portraits credited to a follower of the German court painter Lucas Cranach the Elder (1472-1553). Once thought to be from the 16th century, they are now dated to the 19th century. Nonetheless, estimated at $3,000-$5,000, they hammered for $47,500 and sold for $60,800 with buyer’s premium. Complete results are available at LiveAuctioneers.

The subjects, mounted in two carved giltwood frames measuring 8 by 12in, are familiar images from the Cranach oeuvre. Two of the portraits depicted the reforming theologians Martin Luther and John Calvin, and the other two showed Johann the Constant and Johann the Steadfast, electors of Saxony and important figures in the early Lutheran church. Cranach and his workshop produced many formulaic printed and painted portraits of the subjects, with whom the artist was well acquainted. However, they were also much-copied in the Victorian era.

This quartet (one signed at the upper right and dated 1543) carried a label to one of the frames for a Christie’s sale of the collection of Lord Michelham – a reference to Herbert Stern, 1st Baron Michelham (1851-1919). A British financier, philanthropist and a member of the Stern banking family, his spectacular homes in London and Paris were filled with an impressive collection of works of art. As big spenders, Michelham and his wife, Geraldine (1882-1927), enjoyed a privileged relationship with the art dealer Joseph Duveen. Two sales from his collection were held by Christie’s after Michelham’s death: a sale at Strawberry Hill House in May 1926 and another at 20 Arlington Street, London in November 1926. These pictures could have been part of one of these sales.

Another lot that sold well above its estimate was a Cartier Art Deco desk clock. The epitome of inter-war glamour, it was estimated at $3,000-$5,000 but hammered for $52,500 ($67,200 with buyer’s premium). Housing a movement by the European Watch and Clock Co, the deluxe case combined a dial of French hallmarked 18K gold, mother of pearl and blue enamel and a geometric frame of polished nephrite and lapis lazuli. Bidders were alerted to an old stapled repair to one of the lapis pillars, but were undeterred.

A Tiffany Studios oil lamp in the Moorish style took $45,000 ($57,600 with buyer’s premium) against an estimate of $10,000-$20,000. A trip to the Middle East was de rigueur for European and American artists of the mid- to late 19th century, and Louis Tiffany’s travels to Algeria and Spain from December 1875 to February 1877 were a major source of inspiration for his art. The Moorish influence is particularly evident in the firm’s earliest leaded glass lamps dating from the 1890s.

Also offered with an estimate of $10,000-$20,000 was a 6ft 3in high bronze by the Argentinian-born abstract sculptor Alicia Perez Penalba (1913-1982). Although untitled in the catalog, this large-scale cast by the Susse Fondeur, Paris is known as Voyageur des Nuits (Night Traveler). Conceived in 1958, a decade after Penalba had made France her home, it was made in an edition of nine. This patinated and gilt cast on a roughly hewn marble base came for sale from the New York estate of Israeli artist and sculptor Dina Recanati (1928-2021). The bronze hammered for $37,500 ($48,000 with buyer’s premium).

PARIS — Legend has it that Charles Arpels (of legendary Van Cleef & Arpels fame) saw a lady friend stashing her lipstick and other cosmetics in an ordinary cigarette tin for a trip out on the town. He went to work, designing what would become known as the vanity case, a must-have for any well-dressed woman on the go. Today, these Art Deco-era vanity cases are highly sought-after by contemporary collectors, as Tajan demonstrated with its Collecting Beauty sale, which took place on December 5. Complete results are available at LiveAuctioneers.

The sale’s top lot was a 1925 Van Cleef & Arpels enameled lapis lazuli, rose-cut diamond, platinum and 18K gold vanity case. Signed Van Cleef & Arpels Paris and numbered 27797 and 7050, the case carried a French assay mark and the Strauss, Allard & Meyer maker’s mark. Estimated at €25,000-€30,000 ($26,960-$32,350), it hammered for a remarkable €76,000 ($81,960, or $99,175 with buyer’s premium).

A 1927 Cartier enamel, ruby, lapis lazuli and 18K gold vanity case performed similarly, selling for €67,000 ($72,080 or $87,210 with buyer’s premium). The case was signed Cartier Londres New York and was numbered 8787 and 6144.

Headquartered in Paris, Alfred Langlois was an independent maker of vanity and cigarette cases, often for Van Cleef & Arpels, who signed an exclusivity deal with him in 1932 and eventually took over his firm. This 1925 vanity case featured mother-of-pearl, enamel, lapis-lazuli, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, jade, a diamond, platinum and 18K gold. Bearing both a French assay mark and Alfred Langlois maker’s mark, it sold for €45,000 ($48,410 or $58,570 with buyer’s premium).

NEW YORK – On Saturday, December 9, starting at 8 pm Eastern time, Jasper52 will present a sale titled The Art of Luxury: Designer Jewelry & Watches. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? The three highlights of the 465-lot sale might make your dreams a reality. All are by Cartier, and all feature 18K white gold and white diamonds.

Inaugurating the sparkling parade is a Cartier 18K white gold and diamond Orissa necklace, estimated at $66,000-$79,000. It features 280 round brilliant-cut diamonds of VVs1 clarity and E color, together weighing 9.17 carats, and it comes with an original Cartier box and a Cartier service paper from the New York City boutique.

Equally stunning is a Cartier 18K white gold and diamond large Waves ring that has an estimate of $26,000-$31,000. The size 8 1/4 ring is graced with 4.30 carats of round brilliant-cut diamonds of VVs1 clarity and E color – 86 stones in all. The piece also comes with an original Cartier box.

The final standout is a set of Cartier 18K white gold and diamond drop earrings that carries an identical estimate. Designed for pierced ears, the pair, which has a highly geometric design, is comprised of 30 round brilliant-cut diamonds of VVs1 clarity and E color that together weigh 4.50 carats.

LARCHMONT, N.Y. — Clarke Auction Gallery rode a Halloween-themed sale to monstrously good results, with several fine art and decorative items scaring up excellent numbers well above their estimates on October 15. Complete results are available at LiveAuctioneers.

The Spooktacular Estate Sale was headlined by a Tiffany Studios Daffodil lamp from a Danbury, Connecticut estate. With minor cracks in the original shade, the 20in lamp hammered at $42,000 ($53,760 with buyer’s premium) against an estimate of $20,000-$30,000.

Henry Koerner (1915-1991) was an Austrian American painter and graphic designer whose works ranged from fine art to illustrated covers for Time magazine and American propaganda posters for the Office of War Information. After the war, Koerner continued to work for the U.S. government, but would also embark on more personal works, such as his acclaimed Showboat, which recently sold at Heritage Auctions for $262,500 including buyer’s premium. A newly discovered study for Showboat, created by Koerner and authenticated by his son, was a featured lot in the sale, with highly competitive bidding driving the final price to $40,000 ($51,200 with buyer’s premium) against an estimate of $3,000-$5,000.

Two Cartier Art Deco-era designs sold for more than double their top estimates. A Cartier rock crystal and diamond desk clock with its original leather-bound hard case was estimated at $10,000-$15,000 but hammered at $38,000 ($48,640 with buyer’s premium). A Cartier enamel with agate desk clock and barometer made $30,000 ($38,400 with buyer’s premium), doubling its high estimate.

A very interesting three-quarter-length portrait of an Elizabethan gentleman, attributed to the circle of the court painter George Gower (circa 1540-1596), hammered for $32,000 ($40,960 with buyer’s premium) against an estimate of $3,000-$5,000. Although in outwardly poor condition, the cracks to the panel had been cradled and several areas of paint loss were confined to the costume, where restoration could work wonders.

Equally, while the name of the subject dressed in the circa-1580 fashion was not identified, the Latin inscriptions and the heraldry (a shield of three gold escallops and two chevrons on a red ground) will give the purchaser some clues. Flanking the sitter are vignettes of cherubs and the words Quot capita, Tot sententiae (so many men, so many opinions) and the wistful lines Nemo ex omni parte beates (There is no perfection so absolute) and Eft virtus rara qua non fortuna guberuah (Rare is the virtue that’s not ruled by Fortune).
