By: Nye & Company Auctioneers
A Chic and Antique Estate Treasures Auction will begin immediately following, at around 11 am, and continue on into Day 2. Real time Internet bidding and absentee bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com and the Nye & Company website: nyeandcompany.com. Telephone bidding is available on a limited basis.
The Private Collection sale is a terrific assemblage of early American and English furniture and 19th/20th century French furniture. Highlights include an early Philadelphia tilt-top scalloped-top tea table that retains a rich, old surface. There are also two rare Gothic Revival hexagonal marble top center tables, one of which is attributed to Alexander Jackson Davis and was potentially made by Alexander Roux, the well-known New York City cabinetmaker. This table relates closely to the Belmead center table, which sold at auction for $235,000 in September 2000.
There are also two elaborately carved cornucopia armchairs attributed to John Henry Belter, the cabinetmaker who was an early pioneer of laminating wood for extreme effects in his designs. For those who prefer more opulent furniture of the later 19th/early 20th century, there is an ormolu-mounted cylinder-front desk by the highly regarded cabinetmaker, Francois Linke. There is also a signed Henry Dasson Parisian lacquered mahogany bonheur du jour.
The collection also features some superb fine art, ranging from two grand scale 17th/18th century Italian Old Master paintings depicting Abraham and the Three Angels and the Expulsion of Hagar and Ishmael. The wide-ranging collection moves through the decades and includes an early Joseph Whiting Stock portrait of Martha Otis Bullock, which was once part of the personal collection of the highly regarded Connecticut dealers Arthur and Marguerite Riordan and retains the distinction of being one of, if not the highest price, ever paid for a Stock portrait at auction.
