For those who spend their lives exclusively on land, it can be a challenge to hear the call of the sea. It is wild, untamed, and usually out of reach. The charm of the Summer Eclectic Auction offered by Selkirk Auctions lies in the dozens of authentic nautical objects that help bring the sea into the home.
The first and leading lot is a 20th century Swedish binnacle- a wood and brass stand that holds a ship’s navigational instruments. This colorful and complex artifact invokes the romantic antiquity of old ships; as do several dramatic ship’s wheels. Numerous pieces of dark, heavy furniture also match the navy décor. All of this sailing memorabilia is supported by works of fine art, furniture, and sculpture—including several fashionable figurines from Giuseppe Armani.
