From the 1750s to date, the Chippendale style has been popular in furniture design. It is characterized by simple and elegant designs, a departure from the French Rococo style. Its popularity helped Thomas Chippendale become one of the leading cabinetmakers of the 18th century. The upcoming DuMouchelles auction features a Chippendale-style mahogany dining set from the 1920s. The complete set includes a table with claw feet, two armchairs, four side chairs, a sideboard, and a china rack cabinet with four glass doors.
Over 350 lots will be presented in this sale, including jewelry, decorative art, weavings, and furniture pieces. A pair of 14-karat white gold and diamond earrings is especially highlighted. Each diamond is set in a halo motif. Flatware and tea services will also be available, as well as a Persian Tabriz wool rug woven with a Biblical scene. It shows Lot’s wife being turned to stone as Lot and his daughters proceed away from Sodom. View the complete catalog and register to bid on DuMouchelles.
