It not often that one gets to witness the selections from a seasoned collector like Peter Tillou. Litchfield Auctions present a survey of antiques drawn from the sixty-year career of the legendary international dealer in their upcoming Day I – Asian Arts & Peter Tillou Collection Auction.
A portrait by America’s foremost portraitists is featured in the auction. Gilbert Stuart is known to have produced portraits of the first six Presidents of America. A Portrait of Thomas Taylour, 1st Earl of Bective (1724-1795), wearing the star and sash of the order of St. Patrick is a highly valued painting. From a wide variety of Asian antiques, the 19th c. Chinese Mangpao nine dragon robe is offered. The heavily embellished silk robes were worn by the ministers during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The auction will offer also clocks, Chinese ceramics, bronzes, fine art, and more. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
