"2021 started off with a bang of a Pop Culture auction, and we are happy to follow that up with a fun, eclectic mix of antiques," said Bruneau & Co. president Kevin Bruneau. "There is certainly something for everyone."
Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm's Director of Pop Culture, added, "This is the auction where if you need a couch, Chinese vase and necklace for your wife, you can get it all in one day. Everything in the sale is fresh from various New England estates."
A couch he's referring to is one made by Paul McCobb (Mass., 1917-1969) for Custom Crafts, Inc. The cream tweed upholstered fabric couch is supported by a wood base and measures 28 inches tall by 76 inches wide by 34 inches deep. A label on an inner cushion is marked, "Designed by Paul McCobb Custom Crafts, Inc." The couch has an estimate of $100-$200.
Chinese vases offer more of a selection. A pair of Qing Dynasty chartreuse raspberry calligraphy porcelain vases, each one 9 inches tall, has a pre-sale estimate of $1,000-$2,000. The flared rim bottle vases decorated with two calligraphy cartouches and two landscape panels in a raspberry glaze have a fine smooth foot and a clean end to the glaze lines. They're marked Qing Dynasty.
