    Vintage Native American Squash Blossom Necklace and Jacques Gabriel Painting Come to Auction

    Leading Orion Antiques’ New Beginnings auction is a vintage Native American squash blossom necklace. The sterling silver neckpiece comes with 11 U.S. Morgan dollar pendants. The pendant has an ornate border with stars and an image of Lady Liberty. According to the lot description, the chain with hook clasp is in a good condition. Once a symbol of wealth and status, the first squash blossom necklace was likely made in the late 1870s or early 1880s by the Navajo people. Typical features include silver beads with a horseshoe-like pendant at the bottom called the Naja. Another significant lot in the upcoming sale is the canvas artwork Walking in Public by Haitian painter Jacques Gabriel (1934 - 1988). Born in Port-au-Prince, Gabriel studied at the New School for Social Research in New York. His works have been showcased in America, Italy, Jamaica, and the Museum of Modern Art in Paris.

    Kinetic and Illusionary Works by Ronald Mallory and Yaacov Agam Highlight Orion Antiques’ Upcoming Auction

    Artist Ronald Mallory (1932 – 2021) was regarded as one of the founding members of the kinetic art movement in the world. He worked extensively in New York City and Milan and later moved to San Miguel de Allende. His mercury and acrylic works are considered iconic and have been showcased in major collections and museums globally. Mallory’s wall hanging sculpture titled Kinetic Mercury is a key highlight of this upcoming sale, presented by Orion Antiques. The steel and glass motorized artwork is signed and dated 1970 on verso. His kinetic art, consisting of moving parts powered by a motor, symbolizes a sense of formless mobility in space and time. Yaacov Agam’s kinetic Agamograph is another work of interest. In this piece, the Israeli artist portrays an illusionary image with a three-dimensional perspective. Agam is renowned for creating works that transcend the obvious. The sale also features Haitian artist Joseph Thony Moise’s oil on panel Village Scene. In his Realist-Expressionist style, the artist depicts a rural scene with underlying social themes that characterize life in Haiti.

    Orion Antiques to Offer Purvis Young Paintings and Wedgwood Porcelain

    A lifelong resident of the Miami, Florida area, Purvis Young was a self-taught artist who offered the art world a completely fresh perspective. He was unrestricted by formal training or conventions. Instead, he depicted his disenfranchised Black American community with grace and humanity, executed his works on found pieces of cardboard and scrap wood, and displayed paintings on chain link fences surrounding abandoned lots. Several works on paper by Purvis Young will soon come to auction with Orion Antiques. Among them is a figurative scene completed with black oil paint on paper. Human-like squiggles dominate the page, as do tiny crosses and fluid circles along the bottom edge. The catalog also offers fine art from Joseph Thony Moise, LeRoy Neiman, and J. G. Brown.   Ceramics collectors will find several notable items in this sale, including a pair of Wedgwood blue and white porcelain urn lamps. These pieces bear the brand’s iconic “Wedgwood Blue” in a deep cornflower shade. The color was developed while founder Josiah Wedgwood was experimenting with Jasperware. Decorated in a Neoclassical style, these lamps feature swooped laurels and detailed Greco-Roman figures along the sides. Other notable lots in this event include a set of Imari-style tableware, Chinese carved jade sculptures, and Kachina dolls by Alex West.
