Ingo Maurer was a lamp designer famously known as the ‘poet of light.’ Maurer often made lamps from broken crockery, holograms, incandescent bulbs, and tea strainers. The upcoming Nye & Company auction presents a mid-century modern Ingo Maurer spiral table lamp. The 1960s table lamp features a combination of light and technical innovation.
The auction also offers a 20th-century Lavar Kerman Persian rug with a millefleur pattern. Intricate flowers cover the entire carpet. Lavar Kerman rugs have a high knot density, contributing to their popularity. Another highlight is a 20th-century Neoclassical ‘Clive Console’ from the Lillian August collection. The console table reflects the interior designer’s interest in patterns and colors. The clean, archival design of the table matches August’s mission of creating comfortable, elegant rooms that suit modern-day houses and fashion.
A Wurlitzer multi-selector jukebox model 500 is among the auction’s leading lots. The jukebox design includes rotating cylinders and fine metalwork. The upcoming Chic & Antique Auction will also feature Chippendale, Art Nouveau, and George III furniture pieces; crystal chandeliers; and glass table lamps from Tiffany Studios. Composite Classical Woman sculptures by Lorenzo Dal Torrione will be available as well. Interested collectors can explore the entire listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
