BLOOMFIELD, NJ.- An online-only Estate Treasures Auction focusing primarily on English and American Furniture and the traditional collecting aesthetics is planned for Wednesday, April 15th by Nye & Company Auctioneers, at 10 am Eastern time. Internet bidding will be facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and the Nye website.

“In accordance with the New Jersey State mandate, we can’t open our doors to the public,” said Andrew Holter of Nye & Company Auctioneers. “However, we plan to deliver clients a seamless online experience, one with accurate condition reports and images for all lots offered. We will be closely monitoring our website account and the two online bidding platforms. The overall goal is to continue to deliver fine art and culture to our clients in a safe and socially distanced manner.”

The auction is headlined by property from a private New York City and Southampton, New York collection. The collection reflects quintessential English Country House décor, with fabulous examples of George III and Regency furniture acquired from the top dealers, such as Hyde Park Antiques, Mallett, Philip Colleck and Clinton Howell Antiques & Fine Art.

Highlights include a Regency inlaid mahogany desk with paw feet, elegantly proportioned and ebony inlaid, standing proudly on paw feet; a Regency ebony inlaid and burr oak sofa table that would be the perfect centerpiece for any office or living room; and a Regency figured mahogany breakfast table with a top made from book-matched crotch mahogany that’s almost electric. The movement of the grain is simply tantalizing.

If one’s tastes run along a more modern aesthetic and line, but still rooted in the Classics, another lot to consider is a 1960s Philip and Kelvin Laverne mixed metal “Romanesque” low-table. Decorated with Classical Roman figures, this exceptional table is the perfect balance between the traditional and the modern.

Fine art enthusiasts will be delighted with the offerings. A superb painting from the estate of Ralph and Roberta Carpenter in Newport, Rhode Island depicts the Venetian Canals and was likely painted by a follower of Johan Riechter in the 18th century. The painting is wonderfully detailed and this is the perfect way to experience Italy during these trying times. From the same collection is a little jewel of a painting likely done by a Follower of David Teniers. This work features figures in a marketplace and would be a perfect complement to the Laverne low table.

The sale also features a monumental pair of Bizen Kara Shishi (temple lions) made by one of Japan’s leading artists working in the traditional Bizen techniques. Mori Togaku has been at the forefront of the Japanese art world for nearly 30 years. In fact, in 2001 Togaku was awarded the Japan Ceramic Society’s prestigious Gold Prize. He was the first Bizen potter to ever receive such a highly regarded award. The large-scale lions are superb representations of Shishi and could easily ward off evil spirits. The artist was able to capture the movement of the lions in a snapshot moment of time. The pair are muscular, tense and ready to protect.
