This April, Sotheby’s offers a variety of vintage furniture, silver collectibles, and ceramics from as early as the 16th century. One highlighted piece of furniture is a pair of kingwood and Chinese lacquer bookcases. The pair was created through the combined effort of father-son duo Jean-Charles and Claude-Charles Saunier around 1765. Both pieces were made in the late Louis XV-style.
Another leading lot is a Victorian silver punch bowl from Hunt & Roskell. Founded by Paul Storr in 1819, the firm specialized in ornate centerpieces, tea sets, and jewelry. After exhibiting at the Crystal Palace in London in 1851 and subsequent shows through the 1860s, Hunt & Roskell rose in popularity around the world. Their silverware is known for intricate floral and vegetal motifs and scrolling patterns. The sale also includes an Italian silver flamingo sculpture by Mario Buccellati, a 20th-century artist known for his texture-engraving technique.
