Looking forward to Fall!

On the one hand the end of Summer is a bit melancholic, but I also look forward to the crisp air of Fall, and of course the new season of auctions! Here are September schedules for some of the auction houses I follow, with a few new additions discovered more recently.

Bonhams (US locations)
  • Sept. 13 - Los Angeles - Fine European and Decorative Arts. If you're in the market for good quality traditional antiques, this looks like the auction for you. Nice looking catalogue on-line. This Neoclassical style garden gazebo caught my eye. Beautiful, if but a bit expensive. Shipping needs to be considered too!
 Sept. 13th sale - Lot 4395 - Estimate $10,000 - $15,000
  • Sept. 16 - New York - Estate of Laura Speiser and Private Florida Collection. Estate sales are always promising!
  • Sept. 19 - San Francisco - SoMa Estate Auction. This is their regular estate auction. 
  • Sept. 27 - Los Angeles - 20th Century Decorative Arts. This should be fun!
Brunk Auctions, Asheville, NC
  • September 11th and 12th - General Auction. This looks interesting. Everything from wine, to modern decorative objects to traditional furniture.

The 5 pieces of 20th century Scandinavian art glass form an 'instant collection' and add a jolt of color to the room. They have an estimate at Brunk of $300 - $600.  The Regency style recamier has wonderful curves, and while the condition report says it has a few nicks, it looks to be in pretty good condition. This is Lot 1208 and has an auction estimate of $880 - $1,200.

Christie's New York
  • 30 September - Christie's Interiors sale. The September schedule at Christie's is pretty busy. I like the Interiors sales for affordability and selection. 
Clarke Auction, Larchmont, NY
  • Sept. 13th - General Estate Auction.
Copake Auction, Copake, NY
  • Sept. 25th - General Unreserved Estate Auction. Always good Americana.
Doyle New York
  • Sept. 15th - Belle Epoque: 19th and 20th Century Decorative Arts. These sales usually have a good selection of affordable antiques. Definitely worth checking out. 
  • Sept. 28th - Doyle + Design. This is usually a stylish selection of furniture and decoration with lots of modern pieces. 
There are several auction houses that have yet to post their September schedule or they will start the Fall in October for auctions that include furniture: Dawson and Nye, Montclair, NJ, New Orleans Auction Galleries, Stair Galleries, Hudson, NY, and Wright 21.

  1. Hi Katherine;
    I think the folly is a huge deal if it sells within range. I think the shipping could be manageable, but I'm curious. Come visit my friend's New, Neo Georgian house. It was so interesting to do the research!
