Robin S.R. Starr from American & European Works of Art will be on-hand to evaluate paintings, prints, sculpture, and photography for Skinner’s 2018 auctions. She is looking forward to seeing examples by listed, sought-after artists, as well as iconic works of fine art photography from the 19th through 21st centuries, with market interest over $1000, and note that in the current market, Post-War and Contemporary is particularly strong.

Louis C. Tiffany Red Favrile Exhibition Vase, (Sold for $33,210)



Jane Prentiss from our 20th Century Design department is seeking to round-out her spring auction with examples from Tiffany Studios, signed Italian and Scandinavian design lamps, and furniture by George Nakashima, Hans Wegner, Sam Maloof, Philip and Kelvin Laverne and Judy McKie.

A generalist, with a focus on American Furniture & Decorative Arts, Chris Barber will be evaluating folk art, early ceramics, blown and historic glass, early metalwork, silver, and furniture. 

The region’s history of trade with China in the 18th & 19th century and Japan in the late 19th century have led to local auction finds for desirable examples.  Judith Dowling, Director of Asian Works of Art will be seeking Ceramics, metalware, and paintings from China, Japan, and South East Asia for spring auctions.

Adam Tober will be looking at bowed stringed instruments – violins, violas, and cellos – as well as fretted instruments such as Martin and Gibson guitars and mandolins.
