The Chinese porcelain vase came into the sale with a $100/$300 estimate and ended up being the overall top lot. It was probably early 20th century and was nicely decorated with a landscape of a scholar boating on a lake to view the autumn moon. It was predominantly painted in underglaze cobalt; copper red was used for the trees and moon to emphasize the season and the time of day.
The late 19th century pair of Aesthetic Movement leaded glass windows easily bested its $1,500-$2,500 estimate to finish at $7,995. The rectangular form windows were arranged with a panel of blossoms on leafy branches over a stylized floral panel, then fitted into wood frames. They each measured a stout 80 inches by 23 ½ inches (that's glass only; as framed, 84 inches by 27 inches).
The early 20th century carved and painted carousel animals – a camel and a giraffe- were both professionally restored and were originally assigned estimates of $3,000-$5,000. Both climbed past the high figure with help from their presumed provenance. The 51-inch-tall camel was attributed to Charles Looff, while the 69-inch-tall giraffe was attributed to Herschell-Spillman.
Internet bidding was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Telephone and absentee bids were also accepted. All prices quoted in this report include a 23 percent buyer's premium.
A fine pair of Satsuma vases, Roleau forms finely decorated with an imperial scene with various male and female figures in a palace setting, each 9 ¾-inch-tall vase boasting a signature and an inscription, fetched $3,444 against an estimate of $1,000-$2,000. Also, a modern, 13-inch-tall Chinese blue and white porcelain vase, densely decorated with an underglaze scene of a porcelain village with customers shown purchasing porcelains, made $2,706 (est.$100-$200)
