Pook & Pook‘s Americana & International Session 3 auction is a 442-lot event full of fine art, decorative art, jewelry, and pieces of Americana. The most noteworthy artist included in the auction is Pablo Picasso. An earthenware charger (or large table plate) produced by Picasso in this auction has an estimated value of $10,000-$15,000. The piece is titled Tête De Chèvre De Profil or Goat’s Head in Profile. Produced late in Picasso’s life, the goat’s head atop this charger still conveys the artist’s signature styles.
Those looking for American art should consider Franklin Courter’s portrait of President Abraham Lincoln. Courter produced several portraits of Lincoln in his lifetime. Pook & Pook notes that this lot is in good condition, with only some losses to the original frame.
Some of the most valuable lots in this auction are pieces of jewelry. This includes a pair of 18k white gold diamond & yellow sapphire earrings. They were custom-made by Maryland jeweler Fred Brown. Meanwhile, those who are looking for an Americana lot, which is often a trademark of Pook & Pook auctions, should consider a 19th-century barber pole. The pole contains the red, white, and blue stripes, although Pook & Pook notes that it was most likely re-painted. View each lot and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
