“There is no perfect piece of art. Every piece in its own unique way is the embodiment of flaws from an artist and that is what creates art.” This is a popular notion among the admirers of art. However, Dan Dailey, an American visual artist has come very near to perfection. The 11 different sculptures and drawings featured in 20th Century Design Unsold Lots, display the artist’s imaginative power and hard work. One of Dailey’s items, a large fabricated music sculpture is an elegant piece, estimated at USD 17,920. The artist is making all the items even more special as a part of the sale will be donated to a non-profit education center.
Amongst the 160 lots offered by Rago, monk bird tobacco jar from Martin Brothers has the highest estimated price of USD 57,600. Belonging to Robert W. Martin, the jar is made out of ebonized wood and salt-glazed stoneware from 1899 in England. The next item on the list is quite intriguing as the maker is regarded as the father of the American craft movement. The lot is a Conoid dining table by George Nakashima, who was an American woodworker, architect, and furniture maker. To find more on such fabulous items visit .
