Headlining the jewelry portion of the auction is property consigned by an Upper East Side estate, including a 6.1-carat Marquis platinum and diamond engagement ring with removable gold cocktail jacket in a ribbed basket weave pattern; and a 3.24-carat brilliant-cut platinum engagement ring; both accompanied by a G.I.A. certificate and will make quite the statement.
The estate also includes a large portion of gold jewelry, fine and decorative arts from such designers as Hamilton, Ronson, Erte, Icart, Soyer and more. There's a nice painting by Arthur B. Davies, a personalized drawing by Eric Sloane of Roslyn, New York, and a beautiful unsigned oil on canvas nude. The William IV tables complement the books and other tabletop collectibles.
A family that spends more time in Ibiza, Spain than their home in New York consigned some equally exotic jewelry, such as a Rolex 18kt gold lantern charm watch, a rare survivor, as this type of watch was frequently damaged during use; as well as accessories like cuff links, watches, fountain pens, lighters and hat pins, plus a be-jeweled lapis lazuli and gold hinged casket box.
A direct descendent of the founders of the A&P Supermarket chain consigned several pieces for the holiday auction, some of which include several Art Deco gold-and-diamond line bracelets, a Tiffany tonneau diamond-mounted ladies watch and a lovely Cartier buckle bracelet with rubies.
For those more interested in fine art, an Andy Warhol uncut double image of the Washington Monument wallpaper is a rare image. Another Warhol is the Sunday B. Morning serigraph of Mao in Blue, stamped on the verso. The market is very strong right now for anything Warhol.
