    19th-20th Century Decorative Arts

    Many immortals in Chinese folk culture were believed to be real people. They were elevated to the status of immortals due to their charitable deeds on Earth. In the upcoming 19th-20th Century Decorative Arts auction, presented by Solomon Treasure, the lot with the highest estimated value is a coral sculpture of five female immortals. The five women are shrouded by flowers in this piece carved in red coral. Like this sculpture, the 172 lots in the 19th-20th Century Decorative Arts auction are decorative pieces from disparate places, including China, France, and India. Another Chinese coral sculpture available in this auction depicts a pine tree and a group of scholars. In the last coral piece, flowers surrounded the female immortals. In this piece, the pine tree and its budding flowers are the focus, while small Chinese scholars are nestled throughout its branches. Beyond Chinese sculptures, one of the most notable lots is a silver statue of Michael Jackson. The piece is by Billa Dhand, an Indian artist known for his work with gold and silver sculptures. Produced after Jackson's death and amid the controversies of his personal life, Dhand nonetheless chooses to represent Jackson with his more proud and public persona as the "King of Pop". William Shakespeare also appears in this auction with a bust of his likeness produced by French artist Albert Ernest Carrier-Belleuse. Belleuse was a member of the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts and lived in several countries, including Shakespeare's native England for five years.

    Summer Fine Antique Sale

    Despite its name, the Louis XV style of furniture was influenced more by the king’s long-term companion, Madame de Pompadour, than by the king himself. Furniture became more excessive and ornamental. After years of war, the wealthy patrons of France, including Madame de Pompadour, wanted spectacle. Furniture and decorative art are often a reflection of the cultures in which they’re made. The Summer Fine Antique Sale, a buy-now event offered by Solomon Treasure, includes many pieces that represent the 18th and 19th century in America, France, and other countries.  The sale includes a Louis XV mahogany commode made by German designer Joseph-Ìämmanuel Zwiener in 1885. Zwiener was internationally recognized for his designs and, four years after producing this commode, he was commissioned to do a bedroom suite for Kaiser Wilhelm II. Several pieces from this sale not only reflect the style of the 18th and 19th century but also depict some of its most notable figures. This includes a bust of America’s first president, George Washington, produced by Ferdinand Barbedienne Fondeur in 1880. Another example is a Royal Vienna Porcelain plate depicting Napoleon. Solomon Treasure notes that both the George Washington bust and Napoleon plate are in excellent condition. Those interested in any of these pieces can register to buy online on Bidsquare.
