Vintage David Webb Azurmalachite Necklace and 19th-Century Monumental Terracotta Fountain Lead Akiba Antiques’ Upcoming SaleFeb 07, 2023 12:00 EST
A blend of azurite and malachite found in nature, Azurmalachite is often banded and used in making jewelry and decorative pieces. The gem, which combines bold blue and deep green hues, is prized for its rarity by collectors. A David Webb 18-karat yellow gold Azurmalachite and platinum necklace is a key highlight of the upcoming sale from Akiba Antiques. The Italian vintage necklace also includes alternating cabochon rubies. Each link is adorned with inlaid Azurmalachite and accented with round-cut diamonds. Another noteworthy Italian lot on offer is a late 19th-century monumental terracotta fountain. It features intricately carved figures with a large circular water holding reservoir. With the fountain nozzle fitted on top, it is designed with metaphorical scenes of dancing putti reliefs and other figures.
An oil on canvas portrait by the well-known artist Thomas Hovenden leads the fine art listings. Titled Reverie, the painting portrays an image of a woman dressed in blue and seated while lost in thought. Hovenden’s artworks have been displayed in various museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Irish American artist and teacher spent a major part of his life in the United States painting realistic scenes. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit LiveAuctioneers.
