Showplace Antique + Design Center presents the resplendent Fine Silver Collection Part 4 & Other Estates auction. The collection contains over 350 lots of outstanding artistry in such categories as silver, fine art, furniture, Asian arts, and decorative arts as well as fashion and jewelry. A treasure trove for decorators and private collectors, the auction holds an array of pieces that would complement any designer home.
Objects from the silver collection harken back to eras in which pieces were filigreed and personalized with family crests, polished and passed down for generations. Many silver items were made over two hundred years ago by master craftsman and include several tea services, pendants and pillboxes from this era.
Showcased items also include a magnificent 19th Century English silver centerpiece in the Baroque manner, marked Horace Woodward & Co. Ltd., as well as an early 19th century hinged paperweight with flecked rock crystal and agate. Other categories include several Pre-Columbian pieces, ornamental jewelry, and designer clothes by such luminaries as Escada and Valentino.
Rounding out the auction is the furniture component with a selection of excellent mid-century pieces such as a modern Italian sideboard with an enameled metal decorative mount. This unique auction is timeless in its very incorporation of multiple design styles and eras. To view the complete catalogue and bidding registration go to Bidsquare.
