Brooklyn Museum deaccessions choice antique furniture, sending it to Brunk March 20

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Having been founded in 1823, the Brooklyn Museum has been receiving donations of art and furniture for more than 200 years. Museum officials have decided to part with 155 items from the collection, and have selected Brunk to conduct a sale on Wednesday, March 20. The complete catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

One of the highlights is a Virginia Chippendale walnut fitted cellaret formerly owned by American furniture designer Luke Vincent Lockwood. Attributed to an unknown artisan in the Rappahannock River Valley, Virginia region in the 1750-1770 period, the cellaret’s interior can hold 20 bottles. It is estimated at $30,000-$40,000.

Another item donated to the museum by Lockwood is a Virginia Queen Anne scalloped walnut dressing table. Built between 1740 and 1770 in the Rappahannock River Basin, it is described as being in excellent overall condition, though the brasses appear to be early replacements. The table is also estimated at $30,000$40,000.

This William and Mary scrollwork and oyster veneered mirror is from circa-1700 England. The glass is ‘probably original,’ with the mirror plate exhibiting some losses to the silvering. As such, it carries an estimate of $2,000$3,000.

Originally purchased from John Hill Morgan of New York in 1915, a William and Mary daybed is probably Pennsylvanian and from the 18th century. It has contemporary upholstery in a ‘structurally sound’ frame and is affordably estimated at $800-$1,200.

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO – On Saturday, October 21, Turner Auctions + Appraisals will present two sales in succession. The Estate of Marian Hymel, featuring in excess of 150 lots, will commence at 1:30 pm Eastern time, and the Reed Applegate Collection, with more than 120 lots, will begin at 5:30 pm Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding for both will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Born and raised in New York, Marian Hymel (1932-2023) ultimately relocated to Los Gatos, California, where, during the course of three decades, she became a respected dealer in Early American antiques. Standouts from her personal collection include a charming American School portrait of a young child holding a flower and an apple, which has an estimate of $1,200-$1,800.

Antique furniture highlights include a Queen Anne carved maple flat-top high chest, made in Connecticut in the third quarter of the 18th century, which carries an estimate of $2,000-$3,000; and a late 18th-century Chippendale mahogany inlaid oxbow-front desk attributed to Ebner Toppen of Newburyport, Massachusetts. Its estimate is $1,500-$2,500.

The collection of lifelong Californian Reed Applegate (1943-2022) is the product of six decades of effort. Initially a graphic designer as well as an artist, he was able to devote himself to collecting full-time relatively early in his life. He lasered in on contemporary art by Northern Californians, and had a clear penchant for the work of David Gilhooly (1943-2013) – of the more than 120 lots on offer, no fewer than 60 are credited to him. Leading that group is Tall Burger, a 1988 painted bronze standing two feet high, with a cheerful-looking green frog perching atop the stack. Its estimate is $5,000-$7,000.

Earning the highest estimate overall is a colorful untitled 1998 acrylic on paper by Roland Petersen (b. 1926-) that shows two women, both in swimming attire, happily ensconced in their own worlds and not deigning to look at the viewer. The Petersen piece has an estimate of $10,000-$15,000.

Radiating an undeniably Californian sensibility is Untitled: Palm Tree / Glass, an acrylic on paper by Paul Wonner (1920-2008) that has an estimate of $6,000-$8,000. Stark and simple, it depicts a single slim palm tree silhouetted against a pink sky.

NEW YORK – Home furnishings are more than just utilitarian objects to make our lives easier. For hundreds of years, craftsmen the world over have created items for the home that not only perform the service for which they are intended — they do it with style, personality and beauty.

Fine furnishings and decorative arts from the 18th to the 20th centuries are the focus at Jasper52‘s Era of Elegance auction on Tuesday, September 19, starting at 3 pm Eastern time. The sale is now open for bidding exclusively at LiveAuctioneers.

Looking beautiful at more than 240 years of age, this pair of Chippendale George II tables are from a Chicago estate and feature mahogany flip tops revealing a tea table area on one, while the other opens to reveal a card table. The set carries an estimate of $18,000-$22,000.

Antique table lamps add tremendous character to any setting. This Handel Arts & Crafts palm tree table lamp dates to the 1900s and features brilliant color. Made of art glass and bronze, it is estimated at $11,000-$13,000.

From the mid-century modern period of design comes this pair of Asko Laila armchairs finished in sheepskin. Designed by Ilmari Lappalainen for the Finnish company best remembered for its mid-century modern furniture, the pair have been estimated at $19,000-$23,000.
