499 - The Christmas Special: art, jewelry, silver, design & antiques

17 December 2017

The auction season will be concluded with this very extensive interior auction. The catalog, consisting of no fewer than 508 lots, contains various private collections in the field of art, silver, jewellery, design and antiques.

The auction will start with a collection of silver objects, of which lot 10 immediately catches the eye. This extensive silver dinner set consists of 146 pieces and is suitable for 24 people. The attractive valuation for these plates and place settings in first grade silver is € 20,000 – 30,000.

Among the jewels you will find a special gold, silver and diamond pendant/brooch. This lot 73, set with approximately 3 carats of old-cut diamonds, is a true looker during your Christmas party. Various interesting lots have also been included for investors, including the separate high-quality diamonds. Appraisals for lot 78 to 80 ranging from € 6,000 to € 12,000.
This period of the year is of course very suitable for marriage proposals, which, for example, lot 81 and 82 would suit very well. The popular use of a solitaire engagement ring dates back to 1477, the year Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to his beloved Mary of Burgundy. Appraisals for these range from €7,500 to €12,000.
We are proud to present the collection of watches in this auction, of which lot 168 is a highly sought-after collector's item. This 18 carat gold pendant watch belongs to Jaeger LeCoultre's signature 'reverso' series. This object on a dark blue cord strap, whose case is set with brilliant cut diamonds, is offered to you with a valuation of € 10,000 – 15,000.

We are particularly pleased with the range of design objects in this auction, especially the designs made for Le Bon Marchee in Paris. These impressive pieces, the fencing with accompanying windows and lamps, will decorate your interior very gracefully. The valuations for these lots 247 to 250 are € 3,000 – 5,000 each.

This auction also contains a complete collection of 17th and 18th century tiles, with flowers, birds, mythological and biblical subjects as decoration. Valuations range from €500 to €5,000.

The auction will conclude with a collection of art and sculptures. These 198 lots are arranged in alphabetical order by artist and the catalog takes you from Affandi to de 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 and this auction offers something for everyone.

Of course, the above is just a selection from the entire range. We therefore invite you to the online catalog here .

We hope to welcome you in our saleroom soon!
