Gene Shapiro Auctions Sale Results
This past Saturday’s sale at Gene Shapiro Auctions featured a rich array of Russian and International fine and decorative art.
As at previous auctions, Gene Shapiro presented a spectacular group of icons for sale, among these a monumental calendar icon that sold for $33,600 (est. $23,000-27,000)
Porcelain works also attracted great interest at auction. Figurines proved popular with buyers, particularly those from the Gardner Factory in Moscow. The late 19th century Figure of a Jewish Man, for instance, sold for $6,600 (est. $1,850-2,250)
The next auction to be conducted by Gene Shapiro will take place in May 2013. Consignments of Russian, American, European and Latin American fine and decorative art, well as books and militaria are currently being accepted until the middle of March.
