A certain plate, centerpiece, or well-placed serving utensil can alter the atmosphere of the dining room. The Spring 2019 Outstanding Decorative Auction offered by Royal Crest Auctioneers focuses on those pieces, the ones that give pause to the casual observer. Refined decorative arts from each corner of the globe are featured in this collection; attention to detail in everyday items is never limited by borders or materials. Silver Austrian tankards parade beside Danish coffee service sets, and featured brands such as Tiffany & Co. drive the decorative arts beyond mere functionality. This auction includes several unexpected examples of both the practical and the eclectic. Peruvian sterling silver fighting cocks contrast with French Lalique luxury glassware. Porcelain cups and plates capture the faces of Jesus, French maidens, Madame d’Orleans, and Napoleon, taking on a cultural role outside of the dining room. Rococo candelabras, centerpieces, and flatware give way to minimalist Art Nouveau ones. The decorative arts show not fashions and fads but rather changing social values, on which this auction takes the long view. Register to bid on Bidsquare today.
