"We're proud to have been chosen to offer six important collections of antique furniture, Asian works of art, decorative and fine art above all other California auction houses," said company president Andrew Jones. "The arbiters of style that assembled these collections have put their signature on the aesthetic thread of each while reflecting the character of the individual owners."
Turkish-born Kalef Alaton (1940-1989) is widely regarded as one of the biggest influences on the Californian residential interiors in the 1980s. His feel for antiques and ability to mix styles, colors and textures was unparalleled. He created elegant, timeless interiors, including that for Yasuko and Maury Kraines of Beverly Hills, with a focused aesthetic on fine English antiques.
Mr. Alaton's selection of occasional tables of exotic woods, some inlaid with Italian hardstones, included a William IV goncalo alves table surmounted by a decorative inlaid hardstone top and centered by the Doves of Pliny (est. $4,000-$6,000)
The collection also includes a number of monumental Chinese jadeite and hardstone carvings, highlighted by a spectacular pagoda censer (est. $6,000-$8,000)
