Tiffany Sterling Silver Flatware and Pierre Lepautre’s Copperplate Engraving Highlight Turner Auctions EventJul 10, 2021 13:30 EDT
When King Louis XIV of France (1643 – 1715) decided to transform his father’s Versailles château into a palace, he commissioned architect Louis Le Vau for the renovation. The king officially shifted the royal court to the Palace of Versailles in 1682. Today, the palace is a UNESCO World Heritage site, particularly known for its sprawling gardens. Pierre Lepautre’s copperplate engraving of the Gardens of Versailles is a highlight of Turner Auctions’ upcoming sale.
Leading the flatware listings is a set of Tiffany & Co. sterling silver flatware. The 47-piece Hamilton pattern set (circa 1930) includes standard place settings along with hors d’oeuvres forks, a pie server, and other pieces. This auction will also feature a painting by Chuck J. Sabatino. Titled Plains Parfleche, the piece demonstrates the artist’s photorealistic style and preference for Native American pottery and artifacts. The sale also features several animation cels from Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937). To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
