Antique Firearms, Chinese Objects, Original Fine Art, More To Be Sold Dec. 3 By Crescent City Auction Gallery In New Orleans
Over 1,100 lots of mostly fresh-to-the-market items – culled from prominent local estates and collections and spanning a wide variety of categories – will be sold on Saturday, Dec. 3, by Crescent City Auction Gallery. The all-day event will be held in the firm’s spacious gallery, located at 1015 Julia Street in New Orleans, beginning at 8 a.m. (CST). Offered will be original works of art (mostly by regional artists, but some by national and international artists as well), fine Chinese objects, antique weaponry (to include two rare and highly collectible antique guns), wonderful estate jewelry, silver, period American and European furniture, objets d’art, chandeliers, Persian rugs, Moorcroft pottery and decorative accessories. “The auction before the holidays is always an exciting one,” observed Adam Lambert of Crescent City Auction Gallery. “We are getting an early start to accommodate over 1,100 items, but we'll probably wrap up around 5 o'clock in the afternoon. This is the last auction of the year, and the quality of the merchandise is truly impressive.” The two antique guns are expected to generate much bidder interest. The first is a scarce Confederate Civil War Whitworth sharpshooter’s rifle, made circa 1860. What will make this weapon so desirable to collectors is the fact that it is stamped “Natchez” on the underside, below the trigger guard. Also, it is in fine condition. The rifle is expected to realize $15,000-$25,000. The other is a very rare V.G.W. Libeau New Orleans-made percussion cap derringer gun, manufactured pre-1845 and with the barrel engraved “V.G.W. Libeau New Orleans” (Libeau is listed as a gunsmith in the New Orleans city directories from 1832-1845, at No. 9 Camp Street). The pistol should change hands for $5,000-$7,000. Also sold will be a Japanese Samurai sword. Original works of art will be served up in abundance. Two works expected to wow the crowd are an oil on canvas by David Johnson (1827-1908), titled Forest Landscape with Stream, unframed and signed and dated lower right (est. $5,000-$7,000); and a large (3 feet by 4 feet) oil on canvas work by George Rodrigue (b. 1944), titled Blue Dog is Happy (est. $25,000-$35,000).…
