BLOOMFIELD, NJ.- Following the success of its recent January auction and Americana Week in New York, the resurgence of traditional collecting categories continues to delight, excite collectors and serve as the foundation for Nye & Company’s Estate Treasures auction planned for Wednesday, February 26th, online and in the firm’s gallery at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield. starting at 10 am Eastern time.

Internet bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. The catalog will also be posted to the Nye & Company website prior to Valentine’s Day.

“We are thrilled to be offering property from the collection of Judith Appelgate” said Andrew Holter of Nye & Company Auctioneers. “Judith was well-known in the museum field, auction and art worlds. She has served in a curatorial capacity at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at the DeCordova Musuem. She also had experience working at auction houses and was the owner of Applegate Appraisals, and she was an adjunct professor at a number of universities including Harvard, Tufts, Boston College, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Bard Graduate Center.”

Her collection is the quintessential traditional English country house collection. Featuring a wide variety of 17th through 19th century English and American furniture, silver, early brass, delftware, porcelain, paintings and prints. Of exceptional note is a terrific still-life painting of peaches and grapes by George Henry Hall and a fabulous landscape by the American artist, Eugene Leslie Smythe (1857-1932).

Additional highlights include a superb collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century Continental and English brass candlesticks, a 17th century English oak court cupboard, an American Queen Anne cherrywood chest-on-chest and more. Some country English furniture, such as the Cricket table and Windsor chairs transcend their utilitarian purposes becoming sculpture.
