Our June sale offers over 500 lots for the discerning collector, dealer, or homeowner seeking furniture, artwork, and decorative objects spanning the 20th and early 21st centuries. The warmth of natural wood, pop of colorful prints and paintings, and textures of ceramic vessels and sculptures come together to brighten any room. Let us help you find something that will breathe new life into your interiors. When you collect a piece of history, the story is yours to continue.
Art Nouveau lots include a spectacular Tiffany Studios favrile vase with swirled design as well as art glass from Gallé, Daum, and Lalique. The Arts and Crafts Movement is represented by a rare Roycroft sideboard purchased by the grandparents of the consignor while honeymooning in upstate New York in 1910. Hermès Art Deco sterling silver wine coolers and flower vases set in Puiforcat sterling silver bases come from the collection of a New York City gentleman. An Erik Gunnar Asplund “Senna” lounge chair illustrates the transition from Art Deco to Scandinavian Modern, and Modern and Midcentury Modern are exemplified by the designs of George Nelson, Ray and Charles Eames, Harry Bertoia, Le Corbusier, Percival Lafer, and Richard Schultz. Scandinavian Modern highlights include a rare office suite by Bodil Kjaer and the designs by Hans J. Wegner executed by Johannes Hansen. Studio furniture lots include a rare Judy McKie “Dragon Table,” a round George Nakashima coffee table and Wendel Castle’s “Starry Night Table.” We also feature the incredible marquetry work of Silas Kopf, and a four-panel folding “Peacock” screen by Virginia “Ginny” Blanchard. Not to be overlooked are a number of lots from the cabinetmakers of Thomas Moser. A Picasso Madoura “Tete de Femme Couronnee de Fleurs” ceramic pitcher leads the studio pottery lots, which also include a rare early exhibition piece by Emilio Scanavino, pieces from the final inventory of Otto Heino, and a “CUUT” vase by Claude Conover. Italian glass collectors will find works by the Murano glassmakers of Venini, Barovier & Toso, Pauly, and Seguso. In Post-Modern and Contemporary you will find a fabulous “Les Branches” mirror by Hervé van der Straeten and a bronze-base coffee table by Michel Mangematin. We are also excited to be offering a rare Vassilakis Takis “Signal” kinetic light sculpture. Artwork includes a signed color lithograph of Alexander Calder’s Horse and etchings by Picasso.
