This April, Elstob & Elstob will present the upcoming Fine Art, Antiques & Jewellery auction. Among the highlighted lots is a tiger orchid brooch by Tiffany & Co. Paulding Farnham, Tiffany’s designer, created 24 of these orchid brooches for display at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle. The enamel brooches were highly admired and helped to win a gold medal in jewelry for the company—the first such award ever given to an American firm. The available piece from 1890 features yellow, brown, and orange enamel petals.
Another key lot is an Omega Speedmaster bracelet watch from 1961. Initially intended as a sports chronograph, the second Speedmaster generation became the first watch to be worn in space and was certified by NASA for use in 1965. The auction also features an oil painting by Ernest Higgins Rigg, titled Taking A Rest. A member of the Staithes group of artists, Rigg is known for his oil landscapes, portraits, and coastal scenes. Interested collectors can explore the full listings and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
