Andrew Jones Auctions, which has navigated through a yearlong pandemic with a series of successful online-only sales, will keep its winning streak going with a 300-lot Design for the Home and Garden auction on Sunday, March 28th, starting at 11 am Pacific time. Live previews at the Los Angeles gallery will be held by appointment only.
The auction is packed with antiques, fine art, antiquities, early works of art, rare books, silver, garden furniture and sculptures from sources such as the estate of Keith McCoy, the Evelyn Nathanson collection, the estate of June Ebensteiner, the collection of Raymond Enkeboll, the estate of Ruth Harvey and private collections from Beverly Hills, Montecito and San Francisco.
“We actually considered changing the title of the sale to Design for the Garden and Home since we came upon this wealth of garden sculpture, furniture and ornaments,” said company president and CEO Andrew Jones. “Just the right time for spring and summer outdoor living. That said, the selection of fine art, design and antiques is remarkable as well. This sale is not to be missed.”
The amazing garden offerings feature works of Italian Vicenza limestone, including a set of ten fanciful, life-size Commedia dell’Arte figures (est. $3,000-$5,000 each), a set of four allegorical models of virtues (est. $15,000-$20,000), a set of six whimsical figural groups of putti, lambs, goats and dogs (est. $3,000-$5,000 each), a pair of monumental Continental limestone urns (est. $10,000-$15,000); and a breathtaking Italian Neoclassical style Carrara marble bench (est. $15,000-$20,000), all from the manicured grounds of a Beverly Hills Collector. The section also includes a plethora of garden furniture from Brown Jordan, including a pair of rockers designed by Walter Lamb (est. $3,000-$5,000), among other items.
The array of fine art includes paintings, prints and sculpture from Old Masters to contemporary works. The collection of Evelyn Nathanson features pieces by Vu Cao Dam, Dietz Edzard, Suzanne Eisendieck, William Samuel Horton, Jean Jansem and Haynes King. Three oils on canvas by Jacques Martin-Ferrières will also come up for bid, including Henri IV et Le Pont Neuf, 1918 (est. $6,000-$8,000), as well as two works by the Spanish artist Emilio Grau Sala.
