The sale will be held online as well as in the Nye & Company gallery at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield, starting at 10 am Eastern time. The catalog will be available for preview, from October 18th-30th, on the Nye & Company website (www.nyeandcompany.com)
For those who like sparkling objects, there are approximately 30 pieces of fine jewelry from a prominent New Jersey estate, including two large carat solitaire diamond rings. Coming from another collector is a rare and attractive Breguet stainless steel triple calendar wristwatch with moon phases and champagne dial.
Also offered will be Part III of the Myrna and Bernard Posner collection of silver and objets de vertu. Highlights include a large selection Chinese, Indian and Persian figural pieces of silver, as well as more traditional English and American works.
The decorative arts and furniture categories start in the late 17th and early 18th century with a terrific figured maple and birchwood ball foot chest of drawers, probably crafted in Newport, Rhode Island. The chest appears to retain its original ball feet which is a remarkable survival.
Also being featured is a terrific early 18th century hutch chair table coming from the well-known collection of the estate of Eric Martin Wunsch. Mr. Wunsch was an early and highly respected collector of early American furniture, silver and Old Master Paintings. Also from the Wunsch collection are a few rare cast iron firebacks and stove plates from Pennsylvania and New York.
Wonderful fine art will feature two superb works by Julian Onderdonk (Texas/New York, 1882-1922) and two fantastic Impressionist Paris street scenes by Antoine Blanchard (French, 1910-1988).
