A silver prize pen in the shape of a quill pen turned out to be very popular during the spring auction. The silver and partly silver-gilt prize pen offered here, lot 21, dates from 1753 and was made by silversmith Jan Aarnout Bos in Amsterdam. Valuation € 7,000 – 9,000.
Among the furniture you will find lot 48, a Dutch mahogany Louis XV top desk.

For collectors of sculptures, lot 68, a white marble statue, immediately catches the eye. This 19th century depiction of Moses shows his right hand resting on the Ten Commandments, his other hand resting on his beard. Fitted with an imposing, three-part red marble plinth, this object has adorned Nederhorst Castle, the early 16th century original by Michelangelo is still in the church of San Pietro in Vincoli in Rome. Valuation € 4,000 – 5,000.
Naturally, this catalog also contains a very extensive collection of Chinese porcelain. Lot 79, a series of five blue and white winged vases, comes from the Kangxi period and was made after the Venetian example. This collection is highly sought after, which is offered to you with a noble origin for € 3,000 – 4,000.
Remarkable is lot 97, two knobbly vases from the Transition period with a colorful decoration of flowers and dragons. Both are over-decorated in England, with one of these the fools are still visible in underglaze blue. Valuation for these two clobbered vases € 2,500 – 3,500.

The auction will end with a collection of paintings, watercolors, drawings, graphics and sculptures. These 125 lots are arranged in alphabetical order by artist and the catalog leads you from Pierre Alechinsky to Arie Zwart. Because the works were made between the 18th and 21st centuries, a good picture is sketched of the developments in art history of the last 300 years.
Some of the artworks will be auctioned without reserve price. You can recognize this by the valuation € ATP (à tout prix).
