Three-Day Chic and Antique Estate Treasures Auction, October 25-27
Nye & Company Auctioneers will hold a three-day sales extravaganza on Wednesday through Friday, October 25th-27th, starting at 10 am Eastern time, featuring American, English and Continental furniture, an extensive selection of silver, jewelry and a wide selection of fine art and prints. This will be an online-only auction, with no live gallery bidding.
The officially titled Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction features a little more than 1,000 lots – a curated mix of fine and decorative arts spanning from the 18th century to present day, including a selection of items from the Stanley Weiss Collection, property consigned by a Princeton, New Jersey collector and items from private collections mainly in the tri-state area.
Highlights from the Princeton collector include a 1929 Steinway Model M piano, estimated conservatively at $4,000-$6,000, poised to sell within range or higher; a large number of rugs and carpets in a variety of styles and designs; and a pair of Irish Georgian part ebonized and parcel-gilt looking oval looking glasses. These are attractively estimated at $1,000-$2,000.
Another group of property is coming from the collection of the late Donald S. Morrison of Short Hills, New Jersey, now owned by his descendants. Headlining this group is a pair of Queen Anne walnut side chairs made in Philadelphia between 1740-1760. They are estimated at $20,000-$40,000 and should be a fan favorite.
