Patek Philippe Calatrava Watch and Model of Tiny Alice’s Chantilly Chateau Highlight Fine Estate AuctionFeb 21, 2021 14:00 EST
Patek Philippe introduced the Calatrava dress watch in 1932. This wristwatch is best known for its elegant looks and simple design. The Calatrava continues to be one of the most popular Patek Philippe models. A brushed 18-karat gold Patek Philippe Calatrava wristwatch is among the highlights of the upcoming Fine Estate auction. It features gold brick links, a fold-over clasp, and applied baton hour markers.
Another noteworthy lot is a model of the Chantilly chateau built for Tiny Alice, a three-act play written by Edward Albee. Designed by the United Scenic Artists of New Jersey, the model measures approximately 17 feet long by 3.5 feet high. William Ritman (1928-1984), the set designer for the play’s American debut, also designed sets for several other Albee plays. Furniture collectors will find a Bohemian cabinet designed by Dan Pohl in the auction as well. Inspired by tramp art and Americana folk art, the cabinet is crafted with pine, turned spindles, and bobbins. Multi-hued, transparent paint decorates the exterior with Rococo swirls of paint on the inside. Primarily an oil painter, Pohl took up furniture design after decades of collecting.
