Peter III was an emperor of Russia in the 18th century, and during his time he established the first state bank in Russia and encouraged mercantilism. Though he is responsible for pulling out of the Seven Years’ War, his reign is largely overshadowed by the fact that he was overthrown by his wife, Catherine the Great, just 186 days after he became emperor, and died soon thereafter. Though his reign was brief, there was time to mint money with his likeness, and one of the rare coins from this period--a 5 ruble gold coin--is available at auction in the Rare Coins, Estates & Collectibles sale offered by DGW Auctioneers Inc. Among the many gold coins and other items in the sale, PAMP Suisse 999.9 fine gold bars, Valcambi Credit Suisse fine gold bars, South African Krugerrands, and Canadian maple leaf gold coins are notable. Beyond gold items are works of art and textiles from China, Japan, and Persia. A 2007 Toyota Avalon XL 4-Door Sedan with just 62,000 miles is also available in the sale. There are also antique and contemporary pieces of fine furniture, full sets of fine dinnerware, several cut tanzanite gemstones, vintage stereo receivers, several lots of fine bottled wine, and more.

In the early 20th century, traditional ukiyo-e prints were in decline, and a new style of Japanese printmaking had taken hold. Artisans used the old techniques to depict new subjects, often traditional Japanese themes that were romanticized to appeal to a Western audience. DGW Auctioneers will soon present a selection of Japanese shin-hanga prints during this July’s Fine Estates & Collectibles Auction. The prints are from Kawase Hasui, a leader of the shin-hanga movement. Among the top lots is Hasui’s Tennoji Temple in Osaka. This shin-hanga woodblock print shows a single figure standing before a snowy temple. They face away from the viewer, blocked by a white-dusted umbrella. The sale also includes Japanese prints by Kasamatsu Shiro, Hiroshi Yoshida, and others. Among the notable jewelry lots in this sale is a Buccellati 18-karat gold and diamond bangle bracelet. This hand-made piece features a total of 30 diamonds arranged in a radiating snowflake pattern. Additionally, a variety of furniture items will cross the auction block. A Louis XV-style transitional trumeau mirror leads this section of the sale. A painted panel arches above a beveled mirror, held together with a gilt frame. A candle would have been placed before this French-style mirror to illuminate dim rooms. Additional lots of interest include handcrafted glass paperweights, sterling silver flatware, and assorted luxury wines. Visit Bidsquare to view the complete catalog and browse other online auctions.
