Buccellati Jewelry and Japanese Shin-Hanga Prints Available With DGW AuctioneersJul 30, 2022 13:00 EDT
In the early 20th century, traditional ukiyo-e prints were in decline, and a new style of Japanese printmaking had taken hold. Artisans used the old techniques to depict new subjects, often traditional Japanese themes that were romanticized to appeal to a Western audience. DGW Auctioneers will soon present a selection of Japanese shin-hanga prints during this July’s Fine Estates & Collectibles Auction. The prints are from Kawase Hasui, a leader of the shin-hanga movement. Among the top lots is Hasui’s Tennoji Temple in Osaka. This shin-hanga woodblock print shows a single figure standing before a snowy temple. They face away from the viewer, blocked by a white-dusted umbrella. The sale also includes Japanese prints by Kasamatsu Shiro, Hiroshi Yoshida, and others.
Among the notable jewelry lots in this sale is a Buccellati 18-karat gold and diamond bangle bracelet. This hand-made piece features a total of 30 diamonds arranged in a radiating snowflake pattern. Additionally, a variety of furniture items will cross the auction block. A Louis XV-style transitional trumeau mirror leads this section of the sale. A painted panel arches above a beveled mirror, held together with a gilt frame. A candle would have been placed before this French-style mirror to illuminate dim rooms. Additional lots of interest include handcrafted glass paperweights, sterling silver flatware, and assorted luxury wines. Visit Bidsquare to view the complete catalog and browse other online auctions.
