The third day of the Winter Enchantment Auction, presented by Thomaston Place Auction Galleries, will offer over 400 lots of paintings, decorative art, and vintage furniture pieces. One of the key items is a painting by Jessie Hazel Arms Botke. In 1905, Botke worked as a designer for Spierling and Linden Decorators in Chicago. Following her travels to New York, the artist collaborated with Herter Looms, a tapestry manufacturing firm founded by Albert Herter. During this time, Botke’s study of peacocks sparked an interest in birds and flora. Today, the artist is known for her depictions of exotic birds. Peacocks, swans, geese, and flamingos are recurring subjects of her paintings. The offered lot shows a white peacock against a backdrop of flowers.
Collectors will also discover Marilyn Monroe’s round dining table in the catalog. Monroe dabbled in acting in the 1950s. This period marked a turning point in her career. She remains one of the most influential figures in the Hollywood film industry. Monroe purchased the available walnut table on a trip to Mexico in 1962. It decorated her home in Brentwood.
