The Michael J Kittredge Collection auction offered by Rafael Osona Auctions features many furnishings from the Kittredge family estate “ACKlandia” on Nantucket Island. After amassing a large fortune in the candle business, the Kittredges formed the Kittredge Foundation, supporting many Massachusetts hospitals and schools, and cultivated a large decorative arts and furniture collection. In keeping with the Nantucket style of the Kittredge estate, the auction includes many objects with maritime origins and themes. Highlights are a pair of cast bronze gangway planks, a yacht binnacle compass by the Louis Weule Co., and Salvatore Colacicco’s detailed oil painting of Nantucket Harbor in the 1850’s. For the complete auction catalogue and bidding registration go to Bidsquare.
