Stephenson’s April 17 auction brimming with Phila. estate antiques, art

Group lot of 15 European and American wooden pipes with stand, from a collection of 65 pipes to be auctioned. Stephenson’s Auctioneers image

PHILA., Pa. – Philadelphia’s estate specialists, Stephenson’s Auctioneers, will launch into spring with an April 17 Antiques & Decorative Arts Auction featuring 450-lots of quality items. Almost all of the goods – including furniture, silver, artwork and jewelry – came from private residences in prestigious neighborhoods. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

A professionally decorated home in Yardley (Bucks County), Pa. was the source for the trove of fine midcentury pieces that headlines the sale. The owners are moving to Florida and opted to consign their interior-design collection to Stephenson’s before relocating, said Cindy Stephenson, owner of Stephenson’s Auctioneers.

“Over a span of many year, culminating in 1984, the owners hired a Philadelphia design firm, TJ Ashjean Interiors, to decorate their home. They kept the receipts for many of the pieces, and those receipts will convey to the items’ new owners,” Stephenson said.

Among the furnishings obtained from the Yardley estate is an Eero Saarinen for Knoll Tulip table with Bill Stevens chairs covered in Knoll fabric. A fabric swatch in its original Knoll cardboard accompanies the grouping.

 

 

Knoll fabric was also chosen to cover 10 Widdicomb chairs that match a handsome custom-crafted cherry dining table.

 

 

 

 


“The consignors didn’t have children or pets, so everything they displayed in their home – whether functional or decorative – stayed in pristine condition,” said Stephenson. Lighting from the residence, including lamps by Hansen and Daum Nancy (shown below), are already attracting inquiries, Stephenson said.

 

 

 

Within the selection of fine crystal is a set of Baccarat stemware in the Massena pattern, in four or five sizes. Also, there are Lalique figurines and a set of Lalique luncheon or salad plates in the striking Algues pattern, which depicts a stylized swirling sun.

 

 

 

A Southern pottery treasure that came from a different consignor is the Anna Simpson-designed Newcomb College vase in the Moon and Moss pattern, shape 315. Standing 7¼ inches tall, with the designer’s cipher under the base, the vase dates to the mid 1920s and is in perfect condition. Its presale estimate is $5,000-$8,000.

 

 

 

Other featured lots include a hand-tied Persian carpet, a C.E. (Cyrus Edwin) Dallin bronze sculpture of a Native American on horseback, and a selection of exquisitely carved and lacquered Japanese inro. An antique Regina music player is ready to entertain bidders and comes complete with 25 discs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is already interest in a collection of pipes, mostly by Italian and other Continental European makers. More than 65 pipes are included, almost all of which are signed. “Some are of burled walnut, and many are quite beautiful. I can see why pipe collectors would be asking about them,” Stephenson said. The pipes have been lotted into groups and will open the auction proceedings.

Stephenson’s Friday, April 17, 2015 Spring Antique and Decorative Arts Auction will commence at 2 p.m. Eastern Time.

Morphy’s Las Vegas Automobile Auction debut set for April 25

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – More than 40 fresh-to-the-market classic cars are lined up and ready to take the spotlight at Morphy’s inaugural West Coast Automobile Auction, April 25th in Las Vegas. Rare Porsches, Jaguars, ’60s muscle cars and other top-notch vehicles will be offered, each hand-chosen for the boutique event by Morphy’s uncompromising automotive experts, with quality and originality in mind. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

At Morphy’s first automotive auction, held at the company’s flagship Pennsylvania showroom in October 2014, 40 premier vehicles were sold, including a 1987 Ferrari Testarossa that realized $85,800; a 1952 Jaguar XK120 that reached $88,000; and a 1955 Porsche Speedster that commanded $198,000. 

The April Las Vegas auction will follow — and likely exceed — that success, with featured lots such as an extremely rare 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak “Woody” wagon, outfitted with nearly all available options for its model year, including Hydramatic transmission. Additionally, the Woody retains its original canvas top, wood panels, interior details and floor mats, as well as original books and advertising brochures.

“There isn’t a beach in California where this beauty wouldn’t turn heads. It’s quite likely the finest known original example of a standard-model 1948 Pontiac Silver Streak Woody and has only 35,000 original miles on its odometer,” said Bill Windham, VP of Morphy’s Automobile division. But as desirable as this car might be to well-heeled surfers and Malibu millionaires, it has never been used to haul longboards. It has had only two owners, the first being a wealthy family from Cleveland who traveled round trip in the classy station wagon to their summer home in the Catskills. The second owner is the person who has consigned the car to Morphy’s April 25 auction.

“It wasn’t an everyday car by any means, and undoubtedly it was stored in a climate-controlled garage, because it’s in fantastic condition,” said Windham. “It looks brand new.” The Woody is estimated at $150,000-$175,000.

Another standout in the auction is a blue 1955 Porsche 356 Pre-A 1600 Speedster, with a 1964 Porsche 356C motor and vintage livery from its participation in the La Carrera Classic. Held by the same owner since 1975, this rare model has 40 years of maintenance records, rally history, and a factory COA. Estimate: $250,000-$275,000.

This 1951 Chevy 3100 pick-up truck is fully restored to the highest standard with rare options, estimate $40,000-$50,000.

The auction also features several unique motorcycles, including a jaw-dropping, custom-built, 2009 Big Bear Choppers Criss Angel “Believe” tribute motorcycle, powered by an S&S Cycle X-Wedge 114-CID engine, with a dramatic black-and-red-flame paint job and only 25 original miles. It’s entered with a $25,000-$30,000 estimate.

For speed and Italian style, you can't beat this iconic Rosso Corsa 1986 Ferrari 328 GTS with beige interior, 3.2-liter V8 engine and only 16,000 original miles, estimate $85,000-$110,000.

Morphy's April 25 Las Vegas Automobile Auction will start at 12 noon Pacific Time / 3 p.m. Eastern Time, with absentee and Internet live bidding available through LiveAuctioneers.

LONDON – Roseberys London will auction an Andy Warhol masterpiece, The Shadow, in a sale of modern and contemporary prints on Saturday, April. 25. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide absentee and Internet live bidding.

From the mid-1970s Andy Warhol developed a preoccupation with the haunting nature of shadows. A series of variously silkscreened and hand-painted canvases, created during 1978-79 and titled “Shadows,” saw him confront shadows as a subject for the first time, and paved the way for experimentations with the theme.

The Shadow was a fictional radio crime fighter from Warhol's childhood during the 1930s. Here, Warhol himself portrays the hero, and as he glances toward the viewer, a strong light casts his profile in a long, dramatic shadow. Signed and numbered 55/200 in pencil, the screenprint carries an estimate of 20,000–25,000 pounds ($29,755-$37,194)

Another iconic Warhol to be featured in the sale comes in the form of his late 1970s mixed media sculpture Brillo Box, signed in black marker pen. Displayed in a perspex case, the artwork has an estimate of 3,000-4,000 pounds ($4,463-$5,951)

Contemporary artist Takashi Murakami invented the term “Superflat,” the moniker used to describe his work, as well as being a term describing both the artistic characteristics of traditional Japanese art and the characteristics of culture and society in postwar Japan. Takashi Murakami (Japanese b.1962) Superflat Museum. Estimate: 800-1,000 pounds ($1,190-$1,488).

For details call Roseberys at +44 20 8761 2522.
