I will do my best to publish every Monday.
Rick Kaplan has been a friend of mine for over 40 years. He owns Treasureseeker Auctions, LLC, in Pasadena, CA, specializing in more affordable items in the Art Nouveau & Art Deco world. They held a Pre-Summer Antiques & Decorative Arts Sale on June 14, 2020. Following are a few of the more notable results.
The top lot of the decorative arts items in the sale was #123A, a pair of large, 21½” tall, Art Deco silvered-bronze wall sconces, circa 1925, by Georges Gori (French). They sold within their estimate of $4,000 – $6,000, realizing $6,400, including buyer’s premium.
A rare Daum Nancy miniature Rain vase, 1½”, also sold within its estimate of $1,500 – $2,000, realizing $2,304, including buyer’s premium. The market for Daum Nancy miniature vases has been cool for a few years, so $2,304 is a pretty good result for today’s market.
An original French Art Nouveau lamp with a lovely Gallé shade, circa 1900, lot #108, sold within its estimate of $1,500 – $2,000, realizing $2,048, including buyer’s premium.
Most major auction houses will not accept your items if they’re under $10,000 each, so you might consider consigning to Rick’s auction. Write to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.For the complete results of the sale, click here. You will have to sign in (free) to see the prices.
