HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. - Impressive collections of fine and decorative arts alongside rare and fine wines will be offered at Leland Little's Nov. 29-Dec. 1 Winter Estate Auction. LiveAuctioneers.com will provide the Internet live bidding for the sale, which features estate jewelry, silver, Asian jade, fine art, furniture and other fine and decorative arts.
Highly anticipated objects in the fine and decorative arts session include a rare Chinese carved jade lidded urn, a still life by Peter (Pierre) Nilouss (1869-1943), a stunning 4.16ct Edwardian diamond solitaire, two works by Alfred Stieglitz (American, 1864-1946), and two works by Edward Steichen (American, 1879-1973).
A strong representation of North Carolina objects is led by an important late 18th-century china press, a circa-1800 Hepplewhite cellaret, a Chester Webster stoneware jug, and original Benny Carter folk art.
The rare and fine wine session offers more than 300 lots, including six lots of Chateau d'Yquem, a case of 2002 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, and 30 lots from Pride Mountain Vineyards.
Leland Little commented, "We are privileged to continue our positive momentum from the 2012 auction year with this outstanding sale that represents an exciting range of inventory from prominent local and regional collections."
