NEW YORK, NY.- The overall total of this week’s 20th Century Decorative Art and Design auctions at Christie’s was $9,104,625. This result reflects the totals from the sales 20th Century Design from the Collection of George and Frayda Lindemann, Important Works of Art by Tiffany Studios, and Important 20th Century Decorative Art and Design.

Philippe Garner, International Head of 20th Century Decorative Art & Design, commented: “We are pleased with the solid results and the energetic participation from international buyers generated by these sales. We were particularly pleased by the strong results achieved for some of the fundamental categories of 20th century design - notably work produced by Tiffany Studios, and French Art Deco. This trio of sales was led by the rare and exquisite ‘Arabesque’ table by Carlo Mollino, which brought an outstanding price of $1,314,500. We now look forward with great anticipation to the landmark Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé sale in Paris in February.”

The sale featured furniture and objects from Mr. and Mrs. Lindemann’s home in Palm Beach, and encompassed iconic works by the most important and successful Art Deco designers and key works from the 1940’s. The auction was led by two desks by Paul Dupré-Lafon, and a ‘Mobilier Gingko’ comprised of a patinated bronze dining table and six chairs by Claude Lalanne (estimate: $200,00-300,000), which sold for $314,500 and established a world auction record for the artist.
