NEW YORK — An Ivan Da Silva Bruhns rug from the estate of Sire Records founder and art collector Seymour Stein outperformed expectations at Capsule AuctionsArt & Design event on September 27. The complete auction results are available for review at LiveAuctioneers.

Bruhns (1881-1980) was a French-Brazilian artist who was largely self-taught in the art of rug-making, disassembling Oriental examples to study the methods of hand-knotting that he would ultimately incorporate into his designs.

This rug, measuring roughly 3ft by 5ft, was estimated at $5,000-$8,000 but ultimately hammered at $24,000 ($31,200 with buyer’s premium) after dozens of bids from the floor and the internet.

Well cared-for lamps from Tiffany Studios are always strong performers, as Capsule bidders demonstrated with their pursuit of a 10-light Lily table lamp. Estimated at $5,000-$7,000, it sold for a respectable $11,500 ($14,950 with buyer’s premium) after a lengthy bidding battle.

Founded in 1898 and still family-run, Gracie Studio is an American manufacturer of wallpaper and fine furniture with a focus on nature – such as plants or vines incorporated into the designs. Two chinoiserie folding screens with garden scenes sold well above their estimates of $400-$600, hitting $3,800 ($4,940 with buyer’s premium) and $3,600 ($4,680 with buyer’s premium), respectively.

Interestingly, one of the top lots of the sale, a Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) Viasge et Hibou (A.R. 407) owl earthenware vase from his Madoura partnership, passed after not meeting the reserve. It had been estimated at $25,000-$30,000.

NEW YORK – The immortal Jeffrey Lebowski, better known as the Dude from the equally immortal 1998 film The Big Lebowski, was on to something when he observed that a well-chosen rug can really tie a room together. Pick the right textile–and don’t feel like you have to place it on the floor, you can hang it on the wall if you think it looks better that way–and you will elevate everything else in the whole setting. A rug can bring out harmonies in your decor that weren’t nearly as emphatic or pronounced before it entered the scene.

On June 8, Jasper52 will stage a sale of Mid-Century to Modern Rugs, with bids opening at 5 pm Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers. The auction presents 553 lots’ worth of possibilities. Here are three of the most notable.
