The jewelry section of the sale includes a fine pair of 18 karat white gold semi-hoop earrings, inset with diamond and yellow diamond stones, in geometric and foliate designs. Estimate: $9,000 – 12,000. This section of the auction also includes a 14 karat white gold ring centering a 7.80 karat heart-shaped Ceylonese natural color-change sapphire. The ring comes with an AGL Prestige Gemstone Report that certifies the stone is natural, unheated and untreated. The pre-sale estimate is $5,000 -7,000.
The well-rounded Fine Art section of the auction includes a Fremont Ellis painting, “Winter Tree Grove,” an oil on paperboard. Ellis was a member of the Santa Fe painting group, “Los Cinco Pintores,” in the 1920s, eventually breaking away. Throughout his career, he continued to focus on his beloved Western Terrain. The painting is estimated to realize $2,000 – $3,000. This section of the auction also includes a dynamic modern triptych lithograph by Roy Lichetenstein, “ As I Opened Fire” of 1964.
This explosive lithograph is estimated to realize $1,000 – $2,000. Two other works of note in the Fine Art Section are Max Ernst’s Mask-like glass face, “Elfo 3,” estimated at $2,000 – $4,000; and “Paysage Normandy,” by French artist Maurice de (1876-1958).
The mood-driven oil on canvas is estimated to realize $3,000 – $5,000 in the sale. Pairs are the driving forces for the furniture section of the auction: a pair of California Craftsman John Kapel Walnut Chests of Drawers are estimated to realize $800-1,200. These come from an estate property with several Kapel items on offer. The grain, and the simplicity of design allow for the lustrous tone of the wood to shine through. The second pair of items is by Maruni Studio early folding chairs, Hiroshima, Japan.
The fine oak-framed chairs with red nylon woven mesh strap upholstery are the perfect sculptural acquision for a mid-century lounge. Esitmate: $1,600 -$2,000. This section also includes fine rugs and carpets; silver & lighting. A private collection of Chinese porcelain of Arabic interest will draw international bidders. A Large Chinese Blue and White ‘Arabic Inscribed’ Jar, is estimated to sell for between $1,800 and $2,500.
