May 25th, 2022 Estate Treasures Auction

Nye & Company

Nye & Company Auctioneers will kick off a two-session, online-only Estate Treasures auction on Wednesday, May 25th, with a 50-lot sale titled Property from a Private Collection. This highly curated sale features exceptional American, English and Continental furniture and fine and decorative art. The Private Collection sale is a terrific assemblage of early American and English furniture and 19th/20th century French furniture. There are also two rare Gothic Revival hexagonal marble top center tables, one of which is attributed to Alexander Jackson Davis and was potentially made by Alexander Roux, the well-known New York City cabinetmaker. There also two elaborately carved cornucopia armchairs attributed to John Henry Belter. The collection also features some superb fine art, ranging from two grand scale 17th/18th century Italian Old Master paintings depicting Abraham and the Three Angels and the Expulsion of Hagar and Ishmael. The collection moves through the decades and includes an early Joseph Whiting Stock portrait of Martha Otis Bullock, which was once part of the personal collection of the highly regarded Connecticut dealers Arthur and Marguerite Riordan and retains the distinction of being one of, if not the highest price, ever paid for a Stock portrait at auction. The Chic and Antique Estate Treasures auction is anchored by a large collection of Arts and Crafts / Mission style furniture by Stickley and Roycroft out of a private New Jersey collection. For those that prefer furniture from the 18th century, there are two exceptionally carved bedsteads with testers. One has carved paw feet and can be attributed to Duncan Phyfe (or one of his contemporaries). The second is believed to be from the cabinetmaking center of Salem, Massachusetts. The sale also includes two 18th century John Durand portraits on canvas of a young lady and a gentleman. Another painting worth noting is by the American French Impressionist Edward-Alfred Cucuel.
