NEW YORK, NY.- Christie’s announces the sale of 20th Century Decorative Art & Design to take place on Friday, March 11. With 122 lots, the 20th Century Decorative Art & Design sale is expected to generate upwards of $1 million, with styles that include: Art Nouveau, Arts & Crafts, Art Deco, Modernist and Contemporary movements. The auction’s top lot is Tiffany Studios’ remarkable Peony Leaded Glass Bronze Table Lamp, circa 1905 (estimate ($100,000-150,000). With vibrant orange and red peonies and intricate verdant foliage, the work epitomizes Tiffany Studio’s supreme design and technique.
