Upcoming Auctions June/July

Summer doesn't mean that the auction offerings slow down. Here's my pick of auctions coming up, and feel free to send in one's that you know of in your area.

Clarke Auction Galleries

The next auction at Clarke Auction Galleries in Larchmont, NY is June 28th at 6pm. It''s titled 'Antiques and Midcentury". The midcentury items look pretty interesting.

The chairs on the left are described as midcentury and seem a bargain with an estimate of $100 - $150 for the pair. The Borsani style sideboard on the right has an estimate of $600 - $900.

Christie's New York

The next Christie's Interiors sale in New York is July 22 and 23. This is the sale that has a lot of decorative items and prices that are more accessible to the average person. The catalogue is not up yet on the web site.

If you're nostalgic for the 1950's version of the American West, the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum Collection sale may be just the auction for you. Roy's first boot have a modest estimate of $3,000 - $4,000!

Copake Auction, Copake NY

The next unreserved estate sale auction at Copake is July 24th. Always good bargains to be found, particularly if Americana is your thing.They also have usually a good selection of decorative items. This tray table looks rather nice. No estimates are up yet.

Doyle New York has a Doyle@Home auction July 22. This is the decorative sale of lesser priced items. Almost always good finds. The on-line catalogue is not posted as yet.

I recently saw an ad for this auction house, which bills itself as the New Jersey alternative to New York auction houses. It looks like they have some interesting offerings. Their next sale of Furniture and Decorative Arts is July 15 and 16. These chairs from their last sale look pretty cool and sold for $654.

 New Orleans Auctions

The next New Orleans auction will be held July 17th and 18th and has a good selection of antiques. They are happy to provide condition reports.

Stair Galleries, Hudson, NY

The next auction at Stair is scheduled for July 24th and will be of American, English, and Continental Furniture and Decoration. We went to the Stair auction that was held June 26th, and not only was it fun to go, but many items went within or below the estimate ranges. We noticed a fair amount of phone and internet bidding, which might be a good alternative to an absentee bid if you can't attend in person. That way you can be opportunistic if something interesting comes up. 

The next auction at Wright 21 is July 10th and is titled Mass Modern. Always cool modern offerings at Wright.

Have some fun checking out the on-line catalogues and see if something catches your eye this July.
