Louis Icart’s famous Art Deco paintings drew heavily on his experience working in the fashion industry. In the early 20th century, the young Icart moved to Paris for a career in art and illustration. He found luck working on the cutting edge of fashion, which was emerging from centuries of traditional bustles to embrace rising hemlines and flapper sensibilities. A fashionable painting by Louis Icart showing three women in a horse-drawn coach will lead this upcoming sale from Treasureseeker Auction. This 1920s piece comes in its original antique white frame.
Collectors of decorative art and glass items will find a broad selection of Daum pieces in this end-of-summer event. Among the top lots is a Daum inkwell with whimsical insect applications attached. Using a combination of leafy motifs and rich green tones, this inkwell evokes the forest floor. Other key items from the Nancy-based crystal studio include a large cameo glass vase showing a waterside scene, a pair of boudoir lamps, and assorted decorative glass sculptures. Among the offered silver lots, a Buccellati tea service is particularly notable. It comes with a silver teapot, coffee pot, creamer, sugar, and handled tray.
