Pook & Pook returns with another auction filled with unique collectibles, furniture, and decorative arts. Their Americana & International auction will be split into two parts. Lots 120-565 will be auctioned on October 4th, and the other lots will be auctioned the following day.
A Wilhelm Schimmel carved eagle headlines the auction’s most valuable lots. The German company is known primarily for their pianos. That is why this particular eagle stands out as from their regular offers. The bald eagle, America’s national bird and symbol is celebrated for its speed, agility, fortitude, elegance and impressive wingspan captured well by this sculpture.
One of the most eye-catching lots in this auction is a blue Staffordshire pitcher. Painted into the pitcher is the scene of Marquis de Lafayette visiting the grave of Benjamin Franklin in a distinct blue color. Additional Staffordshire pieces are also available.
One affordable and distinct decorative art piece is a telephone and clock sculpture by Marcia and Bill Fink. The surreal piece shows three clocks balancing on a baby doll’s head. Below the head, as if it were the doll’s body, is a telephone. The ruffles of a skirt and petite legs continue the illusion that the phone is the doll’s body.
