The auction will offer a variety of fine and decorative arts with a concentration on sporting art, ceramics, silver and jewelry. Real time Internet bidding and absentee bidding will be provided by the platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and the Nye & Company website: nyeandcompany.com. Telephone bidding will also be available on a limited basis.
"This auction is going to be a special sale and is perfectly timed to pick up a fantastic treat for the holidays," said Andrew Holter of Nye & Company Auctioneers. "It's a curated selection of property from private collections, with an emphasis on American and European furniture, sporting art, studio ceramics, contemporary and modern art, silver and fine estate jewelry."
Mr. Holter added, "The studio ceramics from the Alpert collection is one of the auction's major expected headliners. Their collection is wide in scope and deep in categories and is well balanced between both American and European artists."
The sale features an exceptional ceramic bust titled Erupt by celebrated ceramist Ken Little. The Polish-born artist Victor Spinski is also well represented in the collection. His trompe l'oeil works are a delight to experience both visually and tactilely. His 1994 Garbage Can is exceptional in scale and quality.
Another Spinski work from 1994, Box of Bones, is the type of piece that can be found in one of the many public collections housing his work. Lizbeth Stewart, David Furman, Warren Mackenzie, Michael Cleff, Joe Mariscal and Ken Ferguson are also in the sale.
For those who are looking to acquire something shiny and bright for the holidays, the auction offers a magnificent selection of estate jewelry. Of particular note are three exceptional rings. One is a platinum diamond and ruby three-stone ring; another is an emerald and diamond ring; and finally, a cornflower blue sapphire and diamond ring. For those who prefer more whimsical pieces, there is a delightful Tiffany & Company diamond, platinum and gold frog form brooch.
