CHESTER, N.Y. – William Jenack Estate Appraisers and Auctioneers will conduct a fine art and antique auction at their New York facility and with online bidding through LiveAuctioneers.com on Sunday, March 11, commencing at 11 a.m. Eastern. This is going to be an eclectic sale featuring fine art, furniture, Japanese artwork, taxidermy, Oriental carpets and rugs, bronzes, fine wood carvings, glass and pottery.
The artwork will be perhaps the strongest part of the sale with large desert scene with rocks and a snake painted by Douglas Arthur Teed, an oil on canvas of a village with covered bridge executed by Thomas R. Curtin, a masterfully executed watercolor of figures in period dress by Pietro Gabrini, a oil on canvas still life of seafood by Henry Leon Mabboux, and a bronze titled Coquette by Erte, #35/375, with original documents and receipts.
For the collector of Japanese objects Jenack will be offering several lots of carved ivory netsukes and okimono, several pieces of porcelain and pottery including a fine Imari charger, signed and of the Taisho period; a nicely painted and gilt decorated Satsuma vase, also of the Taisho period; large Imari vase, signed; and a fish bowl covered with cranes that are enameled and gilt decorated.
The auction is also going to include an estate collection of taxidermy that has to be seen to be believed, all from one room in a home here in Orange County, N.Y. The pieces will include a rare “grand slam” arrangement of full-body mounts American species bighorn sheep on a mountain with custom oak paneled base standing over 10 feet tall; a full-body alligator measuring over 8 feet long, a full-body mounted Roosevelt Elk, which may be a record breaker, standing 10 feet 5 inches tall and 8 feet 10 inches in length with a huge 12-point rack. The other specimens include white tail and red deer, moose, lynx, bobcat and snakes.
In the collectable arena there is be offered a collection of exquisite wood carvings by a master at his craft, Ward E. Hermann (American, New York 1935-2009). Included in this area is a carving of a mallard duck in flight, a mallard duck decoy, hummingbird, blue wing teal hen and drake decoys, and many others. The workmanship is so fine that one could not initially tell if there are taxidermy or carvings, they truly have to be seen in person to appreciate the quality.
