YPSILANTI, Mich. — A diverse group of collections hailing from across the Midwest comprise the 337-lot New Year’s Day Gallery Sale at Schmidt’s Antiques on Monday, January 1. The complete catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Looking like it was inspired by Disney’s character design for the lead in Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book is Boy & Bear, an 11 by 11.5in bronze sculpture of a small, mop-headed boy riding atop a friendly bear by Marshall Fredericks (1908-1998). He was commissioned in 1954 by the J. L. Hudson Company to create a welcoming sculpture for its newly opened Northlands Mall at Southfield, Michigan. The $8,000-$12,000 bronze comes from the estate of Richard P. Kughn, former owner of Lionel Trains Inc.

San Francisco’s Nob Hill remains one of the most expensive areas of real estate in the world, owing to the presence of fine hotels, Michelin-starred dining, museums and historic mansions dating to the late 19th century. This large (35 by 39in) oil-on-canvas portrait of a young boy holding his King Charles Cavalier spaniel while outfitted in something of a dress-like item was from the Nob Hill portrait studio of ‘Jones, Wooll & Sutherland / 312 Montgomery St. SF’ and is dated to 1850-60. The portrait is estimated at $2,000-$3,000.

The perfect item for fans of Italian history, this likely Venetian sedan chair features a pagoda roof design and is in generally good, partly restored condition. It is estimated at $3,000-$4,000.

Two Lalique chandeliers are waiting for new homes. A 1960s Champs Elysees crystal chandelier features six lights and a molded sycamore leaf design; the Chene crystal chandelier has three lights and a single-tier molded oak leaf design. Also from the Dick Kughn estate, both are estimated at $8,000-$12,000.
