Catalog now online: Antiquities, Ancient & Pre-Columbian Art Live Auction on September 14
Egyptian Bronze Sarcophagus for Snake. Length 15.4 cm, width 5.4 cm, height 5.8 cm. Estimate $3,500 - $4,000.
BOULDER COUNTY, CO.- In a collecting category as highly-specialized as ancient antiquities, the most valuable asset an auction house can possess is not a 2,500-year-old Egyptian statue or a rare Pre-Columbian artifact – it is integrity, reputation, and expertise. On September 14th, 2012, Antiquities-Saleroom.com, a fully-owned subsidiary of Artemis Gallery Ancient Art, will offer 240+ lots from ancient Egypt, Greece, Rome, Italy, the Near East, Fast East, as well as Pre-Columbian Art from the Ancient Americas (Mexico, Central and South America). This one day live auction will be hosted online exclusively on the LiveAuctioneers.com bidding platform. Bidders can choose to bid live on the day of the sale or leave absentee bids anytime up until the day before bidding begins.

“All items offered for sale in this auction have been legally acquired and are legal to sell, and are guaranteed authentic/as described. We believe an antiquity will find its correct price in the market almost every time if it is offered with the assurance that it is authentic, legal to purchase and meets the timeline qualifications for UNESCO and various national treaties,” said Teresa Dodge, Managing Director. “What’s more, everything Antiquities Salerooms offers for sale is a true piece of ancient art that is guaranteed as described or your money back.”

The first part of Antiquities-Saleroom’s September 14th auction is devoted to the more classical side of antiquities and includes a nice mix of Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Luristan and Chinese objects. Among the highlights offered for sale is a HUGE Egyptian Faience Wedjat Eye from 11th – 7th century BC that carries an impressive provenance and was once sold by Bonham’s. Also available is An Egyptian Bronze Oxyrhynchus Fish dating to Late Period, 26th - 30th dynasties (ca. 664 - 342 B.C.) last sold by Christie’s in 1997. Additional Egyptian bronzes include An Osiris Statue Amulet and A Bronze Snake Sarcophagus!

“I am enthralled with ancient Egyptian art and have been since childhood” commented John Paul, a customer since 2005. “I used to buy antiquities from various on-line vendors, including eBay, but was paralyzed with fear that my purchases were not authentic. Since I was introduced to Artemis Gallery I decided to almost exclusively buy from their Antiquities-Saleroom platform because they stand behind their promise that no sale is ever final unless I am 100% happy. They have removed my hesitation to invest in ancient art & artifacts.” Unlike so many galleries out there John Paul can feel comfortable knowing that Antiquities-Saleroom.com / Artemis Gallery Ancient Art will NEVER sell an item “in the style of” and ancient piece of art; absolutely every item they sell is authentic and belonging to the period of antiquity specified.

There is a fantastic selection of Imperial Roman items that will be offered including A Pair of Roman Bronze Square Door Plates from the second century AD and a amazing Size 9 finger ring featuring an Agate Portrait of Dionysus dating to the Second Century AD. Additionally, there are offerings of Greek Attic pottery from Athens’ Classic Era (525-450 B.C.), as well as several desirable Chinese pottery examples from the Han, Tang and Ming Dynasties. Most notable is a nearly 2 foot tall statue of a 17th – 18th Century Japanese Standing Figure of Shomen Kongo.

The second part of the Antiquities-Saleroom’s live auction features a wide variety of authentic Pre-Columbian and Tribal Art. The selection of art from the ancient Americas includes ceramics from West Mexico, the Mayan territories and most of the major cultures of Peru, Costa Rica and Panama; plus many examples in stone and metalwork, including effigies made of gold. Some of the Pre-Columbian highlights include A Large Aztec Obsidian Ceremonial Blade from 1400 AD, a simply phenomenal Pre-Columbian Vera Cruz Stone Serpent Scepter dating to 400-600AD, and An Incredible Quimbaya Gold Group featuring a solid gold mask and three nose rings.

In the Native American Art section, there is a nice selection of authentic pieces including A Native American Plains Hide Shield, An Acoma Pueblo Polychrome Water Jar, and a A Sioux Beaded Baby's Bonnet 1880's.
