Charlton Hall Galleries Offers Van Cleef & Arpels Jewelry and More From Estate of Katrina Hickox BeckerOct 16, 2020 11:00 EDT
Several Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry pieces highlight the offerings from the estate of Katrina Hickox Becker, presented by Charlton Hall Galleries. This includes a Van Cleef & Arpels emerald and diamond brooch. At its center is a 3.0-carat Colombian emerald, surrounded by eight smaller emeralds and several diamonds. Also available is a platinum, emerald, and diamond ring from the French luxury jewelry company.
Fine art made available in this sale includes Ralph Eugene Cahoon, Jr.’s Interrupted Picnic. In the piece, a few aristocrats’ leisurely afternoon of fishing and drinking wine comes to a halt once they spot a mermaid. The mermaid looks out at them, befuddled by their quick escape. Also available is The Forger, attributed to Sebastiaen Vrancx. Although largely known for his paintings of battlefields, this piece is one in a series of four attributed to Vrancx depicting everyday life. Vrancx’s works were admired and collected by many of his contemporaries, including Peter Paul Rubens.
A Narragansett pattern serving set is also featured in the sale. First produced by the Gorham Manufacturing Company in 1884, the Narragansett pattern gets its unique look from the casting of real seashells in silver or gold. Because of its intricate design, this cutlery is only used for serving. Decorative art collectors can also consider a Sheraton secretary bookcase. Embellishments atop the bookcase include leaves and tassels. Those interested in this or any other lot can register to bid on the Charlton Hall Galleries website.
