Leading the way was fine silver, featuring a selection by Buccellati that included bowls, Rigato flatware, candelabra, sack form vases and a group of seven shell form dishes that sold for $11,875. Georgian silver mixed with William van Erp Arts & Crafts silverplated serving ware, and a Puiforcat Royal pattern flatware service for twelve hit $18,750.
All prices quoted include a 25 percent buyer's premium.
"The collection had a consistent thread of quality throughout, which led to solid results overall," said Andrew Jones, president and CEO of Andrew Jones Auctions. "From fine silver to Continental antiques, Chinese ceramics to European porcelain, all genres realized strong prices."
Furniture and decorative arts included a late 18th century Louis XVI extension dining table that fetched $9,375, while a pair of Louis XVI white painted fauteuils, also from the late 18th century, knocked down for $4,250. A lovely Heriz rug in a pallet of reds and blues soared past its pre-sale estimate of $600-800 to finish at $6,000.
An 18th century Chinese coromandel lacquer eight-panel screen, decorated with a sweeping landscape interspersed with pagodas and pavilions, made $11,875. Chinese ceramics ranged from domestic wares to export pieces such as the four-piece group of Rockefeller pattern tableware that realized $8,750 and the white crackle glazed bowl left the room for $5,000.
European porcelain had a banner day with an extensive service of Royal Copenhagen Flora Danica porcelain tableware that was offered in twenty-four lots, all together totaling $118,750. The collection also included pieces by Herend, Limoges, Meissen, Mennecy and Sevres.
