Featured lots include 2 George Jones astronomical regulator clocks which could well end up being the top two lots of the sale. One, featuring a fully jeweled movement and carved walnut case is expected to realize $150,000-$200,000. The other is housed in a phenomenal oak Herter Brothers case and boasts a quality polished gilt brass movement (est. $75,000-$125,000).

Other clocks expected to do well include an R.J. Horner father time grandfather clock with movement signed Mapin & Webb (est. $75,000-$100,000); a Howard & Davis (Boston) drum head astronomical regulator in excellent condition (est. $75,000-$125,000); and a time globe (circa 1880), patented by Lewis Paul Juvet (est. $15,000-$20,000).

Rounding out the category, other clocks of note include a rare Tiffany Studios pine needle carriage clock, with bronze case and excellent patina (est. $4,000-$6,000); a large Chelsea 8-day ship’s clock with open moon hands and silvered 7-inch dial with black Roman numerals (est. $2,500-$3,500); and a French silk thread bronze Apollo mantel clock (est. $1,500-$2,000).

Stars of the period furniture category include an R.J. Horner 10-piece oak figural lion carved dining room set (est. $75,000-$100,000); a 5-piece J.H. Belter Fountain Elms laminated parlor set with a sofa, two armchairs and a side chair (est. $75,000-$100,000); and a 4-piece marble-top bedroom set with burled panels attributed to John Jeliff (est. $15,000-$25,000).

The Tiffany name and legend will lead the way when it comes time for vintage lamps and lighting to illuminate the room. Two standout examples are a Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) conical daffodil table lamp shade with confetti and fragment glass (est. $40,000-$60,000) and a 20-inch Tiffany Studios signed dragonfly table lamp on a 2-tone faux turtleback base (est. $40,000-$60,000).

Also offered will be a Tiffany Studios 14-inch tulip table lamp (an early electrified oil lamp), with 14-inch domical shade with red striated tulips (est. $30,000-$50,000); a Tiffany Studios desk lamp with turtleback shade (est. $10,000-$15,000); and a 20” Duffner & Kimberly Henry II table lamp (est. $20,000-$30,000).

Decorative accessories will feature a 19th century signed “Fiske” cast iron fountain with stork top (est. $15,000-$25,000); a 7-inch Faberge silver enamel and ivory jar by Anders Nevalainen (est. $8,000-$12,000); a pair of French Empire figural bronze tazas with ebony putti figures (est. $3,000-$5,000); and a rare Tiffany Studios pine needle double inkwell (est. $1,500-$2,000).

Bronze statuary is worth noting. One is a festive bronze and ivory figure of a dancing woman by Dimitri Chiparus (1886-1947), titled Carnival, in excellent condition (est. $35,000-$45,000). The other is a James Gruzalski large bronze bust of an Indian chief wearing a puma headdress, signed, in excellent condition and with a good dark patina (est. $2,000-$3,000).

Also set to cross the block on May 22 is a Regina bow front upright changer music box in a mahogany case with shell carved crest, playing 12 discs 20.5 inches in diameter and signed on the soundboard “Regina 50871” (est. $12,000-$15,000); and a lady’s 14kt gold and diamond ring featuring one old European cut diamond of about 1.5 carats, with VS clarity (est. $4,000-$6,000).
