George William Frederick (George III) was the King of Great Britain and the King of Ireland until the union of the two countries in 1801. He continued to rule as the King of the United Kingdom until his death. Under George III, mahogany and ornate Chippendale furniture grew in popularity. One of the key lots in the upcoming Fine Furniture, Decorative Arts & Silver auction, presented by Hindman, is a George III-style brass mounted ebonized bracket clock from the 1790s. It has a signed dial and an eight-day, two-train movement with an original verge escapement. Another highlight is a gold, diamond, and sapphire cigarette case by Tiffany & Co. Cigarette cases remained popular through the 19th century until the mid-20th century.
The auction also showcases pianos made by Steinway & Sons. One of the available items is a walnut baby grand piano from the Estate of Naomi T. Borwell in Chicago, Illinois. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
