Artemis Gallery to host July 20 no-reserve auction benefiting Alzheimer's charity
Ancient Greek Messapian (Southern Italy, Apulian) terracotta ‘trozella’ with high strap handles, circa 5th to 3rd century BCE, 6.75in. high, originally listed at $900; now opening at $450 and estimated at $1,000-$1,500.

BOULDER, COLO.- Artemis Gallery, one of the world’s premier sources of authentic, expertly researched antiquities and cultural art, will conduct a July 20 timed online auction to benefit the Boulder Walk to End Alzheimer’s Disease. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available exclusively through LiveAuctioneers.

“In association with Balfour Senior Living Team, we are donating 100% of the hammer price to the ‘Walk,’ which is the world’s largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support and research,” said Teresa Dodge, executive director of Artemis Gallery.

The auction will start at 12 p.m. Eastern Time (10 a.m. Mountain Time) and consists of 110 lots of fully vetted ancient and ethnographic art. All will be offered without reserve, meaning each piece will sell for the highest bid, regardless of the amount. “Collectors are sure to find some amazing buys in this selection. The catalog is well worth browsing from start to finish,” Dodge said.

Among the top highlights is a Greek Boeotian terracotta horse and rider figure dating to 575-550 BCE. Wonderfully handcrafted in an abstract style, the piece is appealingly decorated with red striations. Standing 4¾ inches tall, it was originally listed at $1,200 and now has an opening bid of $450 and pre-sale estimate of $900-$1,350.

A beautiful example of the most famous form of Ancient Greek Messapian pottery (Southern Italy, Apulia), Lot 8 is a vessel with high strap handles, each adorned with a pair of petite “trozella,” or “little wheels,” as translated from the local dialect. An impressive form dating to circa 5th to 3rd century BCE, it was originally listed at $900 but now has an opening bid of $450 and an auction estimate of $1,000-$1,500.

With a round, cherubic face and tight, curly locks of hair, a 4¼-inch-tall marble bust of Eros (Cupid) comes with an included custom stand that increases the total height of the presentation to 6¾ inches. Formerly in a New York private collection, it was originally listed at $1,000 and now comes to auction with an opening bid of $450 and expectations of reaching $900-$1,350.

A Kusura, or violin-type, marble idol from Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) was made during the early Bronze Age II, circa 2700-2300 BCE. A simplified, anthropomorphic form, it is presented on an included custom stand, with a total height of 3.45 inches. Originally listed at $800, this ancient relic depicting a human shape is now estimated at $550-$825, with an opening bid of $275.

Made of bronze with applied niello (copper/silver/lead sulphate) floral decoration – both inlaid and in low relief – a late-18th-century Japanese Edo Period vase is a handsome design with shapely applied handles. With provenance from the Scollard private collection, Los Angeles, it was previously listed at $350 and now comes to auction with a $700-$1,050 estimate.

A coveted Tlingit hand-carved wooden grave guardian spirit, circa 1940-1950 CE, appears as a standing anthropomorphic figure with an oversize head, large almond-shape eyes. Its deeply carved teeth are nicely accented with blue pigment. The 13¾-inch figure was originally listed at $900. In the July 20 auction, it has an opening bid of $300 and is estimated at $600-$900

“Whether it goes toward face-to-face support, online education programs or worldwide research initiatives to find a cure for Alzheimer’s, the money we raise from this auction will make a difference to someone’s life. That is very meaningful to us,” Teresa Dodge said.

Join the fight for Alzheimer’s First Survivor by bidding on and acquiring an outstanding antiquity or ethnographic artwork in Artemis Gallery’s July 20 no-reserve benefit auction. Start time is 10 a.m. MT / 12 noon ET. Bid absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.
