Chippendale furniture takes its name from Thomas Chippendale, an 18th-century cabinetmaker. He combined Gothic, Rococo, and Chinese techniques to create his furniture with wooded lattices, broad chair seats, and fretwork. The style became popular from 1750 to 1780 in England and the American colonies. Chippendale’s book, The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker’s Director, became the guide book for North American cabinetmakers until the end of the 18th century. A Chippendale-inlaid blanket chest from Chester County, Pennsylvania will be offered in the upcoming Interiors @1600 auction, presented by Freeman’s.
Among the featured fine art and decorative art pieces, a pâte de verre vase and bowl set by Daum stand out. Founded in 1878 by two brothers, Auguste and Antonin Daum, the company is best known for pâte de verre vessels and sculptures. These are made when finely ground colored glass is mixed with a binder, placed in a mold, and then fired in a kiln. The available pieces, executed in pink and green, resemble rose blossoms. Tin toys, flatware, and Persian rugs will also be available. View the complete catalog and register to bid on Invaluable.
