The upcoming Fine and Decorative Arts auction, offered by Dirk Soulis Auctions, presents the work of over 50 years of collection. A single owner gathered the available lots from local areas such as Kansas City and St. Joseph, as well as overseas while working in China. One of the available lots in the sale is a set of 32 prints illustrating The Fable of Cupid and Psyche by the “Master of the Die.” The identity of this artist remains unknown, but history notes that he was an Italian engraver from the early to mid-16th century who signed his prints with a small die mark. His work, including the prints offered here, was executed in the style of Raphael.
Also up for bid is a large Gustave Lévy gilded bronze clock. Lévy was a Parisian bronze sculptor and manufacturer in the mid-19th century. His work won bronze medals in the 1862 World Exhibition, as well as a gold medal in the 1878 World Exhibition. The clock on offer is in working order and is listed in good condition. Other highlighted lots include an Erté signed drawing, several antique badges, a set of purple Chinese porcelain beasts, a collection of three Japanese Meiji shrines, and several chandeliers.
