The first session of the upcoming Hindman auction will focus on furniture and decorative art. A pair of early 20th-century commodes is one of the highlighted lots. Each commode has a marble top and three drawers. The sides and legs of the commodes are mounted in bronze. The auction will also showcase paintings by Pierre Raser. A French artist, Raser is particularly known for his still life and landscape works rendered in muted colors. Offered in this sale are his two signed paintings titled Nocturne au Pat Jaune and Corbeille de Fruits & Paysage.
Another highlight of the sale is a collection of fifteen green opaline glass objects. Opaline, a form of decorative glassware made in France, was produced throughout the 19th century. However, it was during the reign of Napoleon III that its popularity peaked. A Neoclassical chandelier, a hound sculpture by Christophe Fratin, and several candle stands can be found in the catalog as well. View these items and register to bid online on Bidsquare.
