The auction featured a wild and wonderful collection of objects assembled from estates and collections across Ohio, Naples, Florida and other locations – 381 lots in all. Up for bid was beautiful, high-quality furniture, as well as lighting, glass, estate carpets and more. Already Neue Auctions is gearing up for its next big event: a May Modern auction slated for Saturday, May 28.
With a pre-sale estimate of $6,000-$8,000, the Baignoire de Cartier ladies' watch was the sale's expected top lot, and it did not disappoint. The watch, having a gold link bracelet with a double clasp closure, featured a diamond pave bezel surrounding an ellipse shaped dial with a silver matte finish and gold Roman numerals, a diamond winder and quartz movement.
The Chinese foo dogs on stands, depicting a female with a cub and a male with a ball, each one seated, wearing a teeth-bearing expression, 42 inches tall, were the auction's runner-up lot. Also in the Asian category, an ink and color on paper Korean Chaekgeori six-panel screen, Modern, each panel 70 inches tall by 17 inches wide, rose to $3,998.
Following are additional highlights from the auction. All prices quoted include a 23 percent buyer's premium. Online bidding was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com.
While the Baignoire de Cartier was the star of the watches and jewelry category, other lots also did well. A ladies' 18kt yellow gold Patek Philippe watch, bracelet form, with a blue dial and a Patek Philippe stamp to the clasp and an adjustable bracelet, went for $3,198; and a Konstantino 18kt yellow gold and diamond Roman coin necklace, circa 2010-2018, the faux Roman coin surrounded with pave accent diamonds, found a new owner for $4,612.
Neue Auctions is following this sale with a May Modern Sale on Saturday, May 28th; then an auction featuring the superb Asian & Antiques Collection of Dr. Marvin Drucker on Saturday, June 25th. Both sales will be online-only and will start promptly at 10 am Eastern time.
