DALLAS - Aug. 31, 2021 - PRLog -- Two important Dallas estates, plus other fine consignments in a wide variety of categories, will come up for bid in a two-day, online and absentee-only auction planned for the weekend of September 11th and 12th by J. Garrett Auctioneers, based in Dallas. Start times both days will be 10 am Central time. Nearly 1,000 quality lots will come up for bid in the two days.

Headlining the auction is the collection of oil magnate Jimmy Musselman. "Mr. Musselman has a knack for finding oil, and he found accidental celebrity when he starred in the movie Big Men, produced by Bratt Pitt," said Julie Garrett VanDolen, an officer with J. Garrett Auctioneers. "We are honored and privileged to be selling the contents of his Dallas mansion home in the auction."

The other major estate is that of Onesia Rigney (1940-2020), the renowned interior designer whose husband, the late Frank Rigney, founded Anderson's Furniture in Dallas in the 1960s. "Ms. Rigney was known for her timeless interiors and for maintaining a portfolio of classical traditional design," VanDolen said. "We are pleased to offer the contents of her Dallas home." Ms. Rigney was a member of the American Association of Interior Designers (ASID).

The auction will feature important 19th century oil paintings, a large collection of rose famille porcelain, Reed and Barton Francis I and other fine silver, two pristine Lalique Bacchantes bowls, a Steinway piano, a pair of cloisonné pagodas, rubies and diamonds and designer jewelry by names such as Cartier, Gurhan, Kurt Wayne and Tiffany, plus wonderful decorative items.

Day 1 highlights will feature an oil on panel marine painting by Edward Potthast (1857-1927), titled Blue Boats (circa 1920s), signed lower right and nicely housed in a 14 ¼ inch by 12 ¼ inch frame; and a large, early-to-mid-20th century Italian oil on canvas landscape, signed lower right Belle Firenze (Beautiful Florence), impressive at 47 ¼ inches by 71 ¼ inches (sight, less frame).

Online bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com, with phone and absentee bids also accepted. In-person previews will be held on September 9th and 10th, from 10-5 Central time each day and the jewelry on display from 10-3 each day. Appointments will be held in the J. Garrett Auctioneers gallery at 9203 Diplomacy Row in Dallas. COVID-19 protocols will be strictly enforced; masks are required.
