European furniture manufactured in the 1750s and 60s was popularly basketed under the Chippendale style. This type of furniture harmoniously blended three different design orientations: Gothic, Modern (Rococo), and Chinese. In a time when furniture trends were only named after monarchs, the Chippendale was the first-ever to find an identity after a cabinetmaker, Thomas Chippendale. A set of twelve Chippendale-style mahogany dining chairs will be available in the upcoming auction of Vintage & Contemporary Decorative Arts & Furnishings, presented by Nadeau’s Auction Gallery. Each chair features two arms and ten sides, all with slip upholstered seats.
The event also features a 148-piece set of Gorham sterling flatware. The offered Camellia collection includes salad forks, dinner forks and knives, butter knives, pickle forks, meat-carving tools, ladles, and several other pieces of table cutlery. A leather-top executive desk designed by John Scalia is also available. The desk was commissioned for a London-based furniture firm, Schmieg & Kotzian. A selection of sterling silver cutlery, antique wooden furniture, and other lots are on offer as well. Visit Bidsquare to browse the full catalog and to register to bid.
