Offered for auction in the watch category is a Rolex women’s watch. This Oyster Perpetual Datejust watch is crafted in lavish 18k white gold with diamonds. The stunning timepiece is composed of silver sunray finish dial with diamond hour posts and surrounded by 46 brilliant cut diamonds. The box and all original papers are included.
A featured high-end jewelry piece is a showstopping 9.95-carat tanzanite and diamond ring. This stunner is a 14K white gold ring with 2.5 millimeter wide band. The featured tanzanite stone is an ethereal violet blue surrounded by 16 brilliant cut diamonds. The main stone is graded I-1 to I-2 in clarity measuring 14 x 11 x 8.70mm. The total carat weight of the diamonds is 1.34 carats.
For the ladies a hot lot to consider is the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Mirada. The sophisticated handbag is a deep burgundy color made of patent leather trimmings with golden hardware and a secure tuck lock. The design is classic retro and includes the monogramed LV design throughout. The shoulder strap is removable so that it can be worn over the shoulder or just carried with the top handle strap. The purse is one of six Louis Vuitton handbags up for auction.
Numismatics will not be left out with the large collection of rare and collectible coinage featured in the auction. A highly sought-after piece is a 1924 $20 U.S. Saint-Gaudens gold coin. Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the U.S. $20 gold pieces of 1907-1933 are considered by many to be the most awe-inspiring coin ever produced by the U.S. Mint. The obverse features a striding Liberty with flowing gown, and the American eagle in flight on the reverse. The 1924 issues were struck at the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia over 80 years ago.
For antique collectors a nostalgic piece is the 1920s Herschell carousel horse. The wooden painted horse is mounted on a brass pole stand with a wooden base for easy display. The horse is hand-painted in its original patina with shabby chic-style pink horse, a brown saddle and blue decorative pad and breast collar. These antique carousel horses were made by the Herschell Co. in Tonawanda, N.Y. The company is well-known for the quality and attention to detail in every piece made.
Another fine antique to consider is 1900s French bronze clock. The ornate antique gilt clock is in mint condition. The style is reminiscent of French Versailles and features a timely Valentines theme of frolicking cherubs and lovebirds.
Additional auction highlights include a Rolex Submarine stainless steel watch, antique Ithaca calendar wood mantel clock, hanging two-sided flange Coca-Cola sign, Seeburg Select-O-Matic jukebox and much more.
