Dating back to Ancient Greece, agate is made of silica, quartz, and chalcedony. Typically formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks, agates are found in a variety of colors and grains. The upcoming New York City Estate auction, presented by Showplace Antique + Design Center, will feature a pair of Willy Daro brass table lamps accented with translucent agate geodes. Each lamp includes three concealed sockets. The auction will also showcase several jewelry items, including a pair of 18-karat yellow gold cufflinks and a platinum, diamond, and ruby ring. Both of these lots were designed by Boris LeBeau. A Turkish tri-toned gold bracelet with a high-polish Florentine finish is another highlight.
The sale showcases an oil painting titled Flower Market La Madeleine after Edouard Léon Cortès, depicting figures walking along a street by a Parisian flower market. Another featured oil piece is Man Riding Donkey by Gaetano Mormile. It shows an elderly man holding a green umbrella while talking to a young girl.
