Day 1, July 26th, will be a single-owner session, with fine items from a private New Jersey family that has been avidly collecting for decades. After furnishing several tri-state area homes, the family is offering items they've decided they can now live without.
Of note is lot 4, a maquette for Moses Transcendent by Leon Underwood. The abstract figural work has impeccable provenance. Another work is lot 214, a large colorless crystal figural rooster designed by Marc Lalique circa 1953. Lot 211 is by R. Lalique: an opalescent molded Tulipes vase.
The family included numerous examples of lighting in the auction, which include chandeliers, sconces and lamps. There is also a wide variety of traditional furniture, antique porcelain, whimsical bookends, empty frames and more, such as lot 47, a Suzanne Kasler designed brass-mounted Monaco chest for Hickory Chair.
A wonderful oil on canvas of a dancer, lot 12, by Wu Jian, titled Pure Ages, depicts a ballerina highlighted against a dark background. The dramatic composition is extremely eye-catching by a sought-after contemporary Chinese artist. Arts and Crafts pottery, Asian ceramics and fine art round out the group from the well-heeled New Jersey family.
The second day could be titled The Decorator's Eye, as it is largely comprised of two consignments. The first is a group of new or nearly-new contemporary Giorgetti furniture. The exquisitely designed Italian furnishings largely came to auction from storage and much of it had to be removed from its original packaging in order to prepare it for auction.
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. Phone bidding will also be available on a limited basis.
