Eldred’s will present a single-owner collection with a focus on fine and decorative art in the upcoming auction. A Queen Anne bonnet-top highboy is one of the featured lots. Produced in 1760, this drawer chest is made of mahogany wood. Two fans carved into the top and bottom of the highboy frame ten drawers of various sizes. Queen Anne-style furniture became popular in the 18th century and is characterized by its combination of versatility and Baroque embellishments. Those interested in antique decorative art can also consider a 19th-century Swiss music box. Inside the case is a music set that can play 12 different songs. Bees and butterflies decorate the device’s hammers.
Bidders will also find several bird-themed lots in the catalog, including eight carved Canada geese plaques. Dating back to the early 20th century, they vary in size from five to 11 inches. Another example is a Bellamy-style eagle plaque holding a “Remember the Maine” flag. The 1898 sinking of the USS Maine in Havana Harbor was one of the inciting incidents of the Spanish-American War. Register to bid and view each of the lots on Invaluable.
