The Rumson collection features a nice selection of late 18th and 19th century English furniture, as well as multiple examples of canine-inspired works of art, such as dogs in human dress and others in various pursuits. There is also a fine group of chic upholstered furniture that is often down-filled and in excellent condition – perfect for anyone looking to upgrade and brighten up their home. Accessories abound in the terms of shaving mirrors, small desks, and table and floor lamps. For those who prefer more contemporary works, the collection contains Karl Springer low tables and an after Diego Giacometti "Tete de Femme" floor lamp.
Dovetailing nicely with the Rumson collection is property from the Chaus estate. Bernard and Josephine Chaus were the founders of Bernard Chaus, Inc., which was one of the leading fashion producers of women's sportswear and dresses. Their refined and fashionable eyes can be seen in the objects they collected, such as a pair of modern and stylish Karl Springer low tables and a monumental mahogany extension dining table. The top looks like a sea of wonderfully figured mahogany and it will be the perfect place to gather around in a post-COVID world.
Nye & Company continues to offer another round of fabulous objets d'art from a Short Hills, New Jersey and San Francisco, California collector. The collection is both varied and disparate and features an oil on canvas painting of a somber streetscape by Oscar Rabine, an abstract metal and glass wall-mounted floor sculpture by Pamina Traylor and two abstract glass and bronze works by Alex Gabriel Bernstein. The Birth of Venus, by Daum and Arman, titled "Naissance" is another mixed media sculpture worthy of interest and spirited bidding. Another featured piece from this collection is a Louis XV style bronze and rock crystal chandelier, monumental in size and draped in large rock crystal drops.
People can bid in absentia and online. An online preview is being held through March 10th, at www.nyeandcompany.com, www.liveauctioneers.com, www.bidsquare.com and www.invaluable.com.
