In the first session of the upcoming Three-Day Auction, Charlton Hall Auctioneers presents a selection of fine arts, Asian antiques, and jewelry. Featured is an oil on board piece by William Melton Halsey. The 20th-century artist was one of South Carolina’s leading Modernists, recognized for his vibrant paintings, collages, and sculptures. Halsey derived his style from a Post-Cubist tradition of exploring nature and abstraction through color and lines. Eventually, his work included personal expressionism, often characterized by the use of bold textures. Other highlights of this auction include a pair of 1845 porcelain vases from Edmé Samson. The pottery manufacturer is known for mirroring the designs of Chinese Export porcelain until production stopped in 1969. Each vase is accented with scrolling acanthus handles.
The auction offers sculpture and decorative art as well. A Viennese rock crystal cornucopia is among the featured lots. The 19th-century horn is carved with hounds, game, and fowl. The entire cornucopia is supported by a stag on a domed crystal. It reflects the culture and style of Renaissance art. Explore the full listings and register to bid online on Invaluable.
