WORD OF MOUTH: FINE FURNITURE + DECORATIVE ARTS AUCTION

Not to be missed.

December 6, 2017

Baccarat, Lalique and Georg Jensen are among dozens of big-names on the block at Shapiro – who has had a run of successful Spring auctions – next week. This summer looks just as hot with Tuesday’s completely lovely collection of proper pieces (furniture, lighting, porcelain, pottery and silver), that will elevate any space, and create a more layered, civilised look. There are beautiful Georgian silver trays, claret jugs, clocks, vases, bowls, scent bottle, garnitures and more. There’s Napoleon wall sconces. Italian marble sculptures. Also, bronze figures. Marble pedestals. Peking vases. Victorian tea caddies. Limited edition cutlery sets by Georg Jensen in to-die for patterns.

Expect Art Deco, Louis XV, Napolian III, Neoclassical and Rococo furniture styles. Plus, commodes, cabinets, consoles, fauteuils, mirrors, paintings like you see in the world’s grandest houses but equally lovely wherever you live. Oh lovely, Flemish and French tapestries, too. A must.
