On Monday 1 October we will start the new auction season with a new concept, called 'The Interior Collection'. In this auction you will find all kinds of objects, from pottery to screen printing, to decorate your home.
The catalog starts with over 200 antiques in the fields of silver, porcelain, pottery, furniture, clocks and other Decorative Arts. From lot 208 we offer you a rich range of paintings, watercolors, drawings and graphics, from Old Master to contemporary photographer.
Besides the fact that all objects up for auction are very attractively priced, you will find more than 100 lots that can be sold at any price. You can recognize this by the valuation of € 1 – 1.
Here are some highlights for you:
Amidst the Chinese porcelain you will find various objects from the Kangxi period. We offer you a beautiful terrine with lid (appraised € 2,500 – 3,500), but also a number of beautiful hooded bowls, all marked and decorated (appraised € 2,000 – 4,000 each).
If your eye is drawn to the pair of beautiful pear-shaped knobbly vases, decorated with stylized floral motifs and estimated at € 2,000 – 3,000, we recommend that you also look at the garniture from the same period. These richly decorated, five antiquities are gourd-shaped and hexagonal, with an estimated auction value of € 3,500 – 4,500.
In the Ethnographics section, also called Tribal Art, you will find, among other things, a monumental Nias ancestor statue of a standing man with very long earrings that reach past the shoulders. This beautifully patinated statue is 19th century, 38.5 cm high and estimated at € 4,000 – 5,000. A second statue of Nias is of the same origin, this time of a standing figure with hands in front of the stomach and a fanned-out headdress (estimate € 3,000 – 4,000).
For lovers of old sculpture, there is a high-quality Mother and Child, probably from Mechelen, from the 16th century. Appraisal for this 35 cm high statue is € 2,500 – 3,500.
Two Viennese bronze horses, as always well shot and very detailed, are valued at €2,000 – 3,000. Of the same quality are three different endearing Viennese bronze bulldogs, which together are estimated at € 1,800 – 2,200.
An important bronze mortar with pestle, dated 1596 by Hendrik Wegewart from Kampen, has been valued at € 1,500 – 2,000.
For collectors of antique clocks there is a very good Louis XVI mantel clock, signed 'Ridel a Paris' and crowned by a Diana with a bow and arrow (value € 1,600 – 1,800).
A beautiful Empire mantel clock on which a mother who breastfeeds her child, seated on a recamier, is valued at € 1,500 – 2,000.
A high quality marble and gilt bronze 'Eagle' mantel clock, dated around 1790 and signed 'A.toine Martin a Paris', has a valuation of €1,600 – 2,000.
If you are looking for a beautiful piece of furniture, we would like to point out the impressive mahogany Louis XV top desk. This has been skilfully restored, leaving it in very good condition, but modestly valued at € 4,000 – 6,000.
For shiny eye-catchers in your home, don't forget to check out the pair of silver Augsburg candlesticks. These bear the year letter 1797/99 and were made by Jacob Samuel Allgower (value € 1,800 – 2,200).
If you have space on the walls, you can indulge in the wide choice of framed works that come up for auction. The artists are arranged in alphabetical order, which leads you to Bert van Zelm in Yaakov Agam's catalogue. Almost half of these works are offered without a minimum price, here is a brief summary:
Beautifully framed and large in size are the lithographs by Karel Appel, more refined are the black-and-white photos by Eva Besnyö, which contrast sharply with the photos by Paul Blanca. No fewer than five of his very typical gouaches are offered by Eugène Brands, after which the catalog takes you past Corneille, Jan Cremer and Salvador Dalí.
Striking are the metal geometric figures by Cor van Dijk, all based on mathematical principles and series. You will also find a number of beautiful and highly sought-after pochoir prints by Kees van Dongen in this auction, which contrast sharply with the almost jolly painted ceramics by Ad Gerritsen.
A name like Klaas Gubbels cannot be missed in an auction like this one. From his hand we offer you not only paintings, but also ceramic plates. Another artist in that field is Vilma Henkelman, of which no fewer than 6 objects are included.
Anton Heyboer is represented with early etchings to late drawings, while Lucassen and Lucebert adorn the auction with art from the 1980s.
Two elegant bronzes by the artist Carry op ten Noort are included, each depicting the woman.
Striking are the two necklaces in this auction, designed by Studio Job and Thea Tolsma, the latter makes unique hand-cut necklaces from rubber inner tube.
Of course, the above is only a small selection from the total range of 426 lots. We hope to welcome you during the viewing days, when you can view all objects and our specialists are present to advise you.
We hope to welcome you soon at the auction house!
