1Batten Road combines functionality and artistic freedom in the ongoing auction, Rare & Unique 20th Century Estate Treasures. While the auction includes 20th-century art and collectibles, its most notable lots are furniture pieces with distinct styles. Among these pieces is a French coat rack from Roger Feraud. The rack is made with curved steel and brightly-colored balls reminiscent of an abacus.
Another lot with a high estimated value is a set of three glass prototypes from industrial designer Russel Wright. Russel Wright was a mid-20th-century designer who, through dinnerware and furniture, helped shape what we now consider modern design. His set includes one pitcher and two beer mugs, each in amber and green mouth-blown glass.
Included, too, is a small table with bent legs by artist Neal Small. Small is known for his work with plastics in furniture and home accessories. His work appears in the Museum of Modern Art and the Smithsonian, among other places. Those interested in any of these pieces can view them and register to bid on Bidsquare.
