The sale will feature a broad and diverse selection of fine and decorative arts. Real time Internet bidding and absentee bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and the Nye & Company website: www.nyeandcompany.com. Telephone bidding will also be available on a limited basis.
"This auction is going to be a special sale and is sure to delight collectors, dealers and institutions alike," said Andrew Holter of Nye & Company Auctioneers. "It's composed of an exceptionally curated selection of property from private collections, with an emphasis on American and European furniture, sporting art, Chinese ceramics, rugs and contemporary and modern art. Also, a nice group of modern furniture complements the contemporary art."
One of the headliners of the auction is the collection of Winston F.C. and C.Z. Guest. Winston Frederick Churchill Guest was born in England in 1906 and was named after his godfather and his father's best friend and cousin, Sir Winston Churchill. He was raised in the company of great men. His father, Captain the Right Honourable Frederick E. Guest, a grandson of the 7th Duke of Marlborough, was a member of Parliament.
Mr. Guest was not only a devoted student, but also an avid sportsman and Polo Hall of Fame 10 Goal player. He later served as a Captain in the United States Marine Corps in World War II. Many of the Chinese works in the collection were purchased by Mr. Guest in the mid-20th century, following the war, through his close friend Ralph M. Chait, of Chait Galleries, and through C.T. Loo, also a predominant Chinese art dealer of the period.
People can bid in absentia and online. An online preview is being held from October 13th thru October 27th-28th at www.nyeandcompany.com, www.liveauctioneers.com, www.bidsquare.com and www.invaluable.com. For more info, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.nyeandcompany.com.
