LOS ANGELES, CA.- On June 13, 2011 at Bonhams & Butterfields in Los Angeles, the firm will offer Fine European Furniture and Decorative Arts. Highlights from the 550-lot sale will include property from the 16th through the 20th centuries, with a focus on English, French, Italian, Spanish and German works. Highlighting the auction is a strong selection of more than 20 clocks by prominent makers such as Christopher Gould, one of the most important clock makers of the late 17th century, as well as property from the Estate of noted Hollywood figures, Tim Whelan and Miriam Seegar, among others.

Andrew Jones, Los Angeles Director of European Furniture and Decorative Arts at Bonhams & Butterfields said of the sale, “The spring auction boasts a good balance of 17th-19th century furnishings, porcelain and silver, as well as a robust offering of tall case, mantle and decorative clocks. Bonhams & Butterfields is to offer collectors a unique selection of property from across Europe.”

Among the marquee lots of the fall auction is a William and Mary walnut marquetry tall case clock by one of the most important makers of the late 17th/early 18th centuries, Christopher Gould (est. $20,000-40,000). The piece was once featured as lot 29 of the famous Wetherfield Collection clock auction on May 1, 1928 and is inscribed on the dial by the maker.
