O ur two autumn decorative arts sales are now open for online bidding: European Silver, Furniture & Ceramics closes Wednesday, October 20th, and STYLE: New York Thursday, October 21st.
The European Silver, Furniture, & Ceramics auction presents a distinctly English country house feel with classic William & Mary, Queen Anne, Georgian and Regency furniture, silver, and clocks including an important pair of mahogany commodes in the manner of William Vile, a rare month-going tall-case clock by Daniel Quare, and masterpieces of early Georgian walnut and burr walnut case pieces, eminently suited for the unfolding autumnal season. The sterling reputation of Georgian silver is maintained by pieces from the collection of Bruce Dayton and Ruth Stricker Dayton, and also the refined choices from a Private Canadian collection, while the Joseph Segal collection from Vancouver displays Regency and Early Victorian magnificence, including a pair of equestrian figures from the 1862 World’s Fair. The brilliance of fall colours is reflected by a scarlet japanned bureau cabinet attributed to Giles Grendey from Warwick Castle, and a magnificent and rare pair of Queen Anne red verre églomisé pier mirrors. Unusual and innovative French and Continental works also appear, among them an exceptionally rare pair of signed Spanish Neoclassical Commodes made in Barcelona, examples of complimentary Spanish and Spanish Colonial Silver, and a wide variety of tables, seat furniture and lighting perfect for embellishing a warm interior for the long nights ahead.
