CRANSTON, RI.- A selection of three rare Tiffany Studios floor and table lamps from a private collection out of Houston, Texas, plus the contents of the Pawtucket, Rhode Island Preservation Society Joseph Spaulding House are just a taste of what’s in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ upcoming Estate Antiques & Fine Art Auction on Saturday, September 22nd.

The auction will be held online and in Bruneau & Co.’s gallery, located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, beginning promptly at 10 am Eastern time. More than 450 lots will come up for bid, with online bidding via,, and, or by downloading the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay.

“You name it, this sale has it,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer. “From Chinese and Egyptian antiquities to Art Nouveau illustration and Modern Art, there is something for every collector. I can’t wait for those three Tiffany lamps to cross the block.”

All three are beauties. They include a Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) allover Dogwood floor lamp, 63 ½ inches tall with a 22 inch diameter shade boasting variegated iridescent white Favrile glass petals (est. $90,000-$120,000); and a Tiffany blown glass table lamp with a 20 inch diameter Poppy shade of multi-colored Favrile glass (est. $80,000-$120,000). Both are impressed and circa 1910.

“It is with great satisfaction that my team and I were able to publish a catalog with such diversity,” said Bruneau & Co. company president and auctioneer Kevin Bruneau. “After the last selection of Tiffany in a prior auction, I was honored to be able to handle a second collection with such unique qualities. It was truly a joy to put this sale together. I expect it will do well.”

The auction will open with a 1929 Ford Model A closed cab pick-up truck and a 1922 Ford Model T wood body depot hack truck. The latter, with green painted fenders and hood, a wood panel body and vinyl roof, has an inline four-cylinder engine. It’s had a fairly recent restoration and shows off a nicely finished body and detailed engine compartment (est. $8,000-$12,000).

Other fine art highlights will include an Impressionist oil on canvas painting of a Mediterranean harbor by Norris Rahming (American, 1886-1959); an early classical portrait painting of a girl by Charles Wesley Jarvis (American, 1812-1868); and a nocturnal landscape painting of a village by Robert Bruce Crane (American, 1857-1937).
