A Mid Summer Buy Now Sale Event of Mid-20th Century Furniture, Collectibles & MoreJul 31, 2019 16:00 EDT - Aug 31, 2019 00:00 EDT
Some auctions present lots from one country or civilization, while others, such as the Midsummer Buy Now Sale presented by Ambianic, offer pieces from all over the world. Ambianic specializes in mid-20th-century art, and their midsummer auction is no exception.
One of the most distinctive collectibles is a British lighter inspired by Alfred Dunhill Limited. The lighter has a strange, durian-like color and texture. This effect is achieved with silver-plated brass and shagreen leather. Decorative Arts make up the majority of lots in this auction. Among the pieces with the highest estimated value is a stone and copper sculpture from Rancho Santa Fe, California. Little is known about the sculpture’s origins, but it has a modern, abstract aesthetic. Ambianic notes that the piece will require professional handling for moving and installation.
Meanwhile, the most notable furniture item in this buy-now auction is a Mexican Modernist wall unit made with mahogany and goatskin. The piece has a sculptural, minimalist design except for a door which contains a traditional Japanese-inspired painting. Buyers will have the opportunity to purchase mid-century items from Mexico, England, America, and elsewhere at one buy-now price. Lots in this auction are primarily fine art, decorative art, furniture, and collectibles. View each of these lots and register to buy on Bidsquare.
