Antonio Jacobsen, also known as the “Audubon of steam vessels,” painted over 6,000 ships in his lifetime. Clients chose Jacobsen both for his commitment to accuracy and his low cost, charging a rate of about five dollars per piece ($130 today, when adjusted for inflation). A profile of a sailing ship by Jacobsen, titled The American Bark, is among the highlighted lots in John Moran Auctioneers’ upcoming California Living event. Produced in 1909, the painting comes to auction in good condition with no evidence of restoration under blacklight.
American decorative art collectors will find a Gustav Stickley oak serving table produced sometime between 1907 and 1912. The table comes with three short drawers, a long drawer, and a rectangular undershelf. The late 1900s were a productive time for Stickley, when his company, The Craftsman Workshops, was held in high regard around the world. Also available to bidders are several Tiffany lamps, including a turtleback-style desk lamp in green, blue, pink, and gold. Register to bid on this or any other piece by visiting the Invaluable
