The Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction will feature nearly 1,000 lots – a curated mix of fine and decorative arts spanning from the 18th century to the present day, including an exceptional selection of property from the Stanley Weiss collection, folk art from the Maggie Cohen collection and superb early American furniture from a private Connecticut collection.
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.
Headlining the auction is property from the well-known and highly regarded Rhode Island collector, Stanley Weiss. For over 30 years, Stanley developed an eye for the early American aesthetic, with an emphasis on the Queen Anne through the Neoclassical periods. His passion and enthusiasm for quality craftsmanship and figured wood are evident in each piece he owned.
Highlights include a superb, late Federal carved mahogany card table from Salem, Mass. The table exhibits classic design elements that are often associated with Samuel McIntire and his son. Another eye-catcher is a Federal mahogany bowfront clothes press dated April 24th, 1802 and likely made in Boston. Estimated at $2,500-$5,000, the piece offers a lot of bang for the buck.
Another fine piece from New York is a brass-inlaid dolphin base card table. This spectacularly carved table is conservatively priced at $1,500-$2,500. Back up the coast, there is a Federal card table from Portsmouth, New Hampshire, with delicate long slender reeded legs, rich brown color and an inlaid frieze.
