Freehold, NY – The Carlsen Gallery’s annual “March Madness” Auction takes place on Sunday, March 28, at 10:30 a.m. The popular auction event will offer choice contents from the Berkshire Women’s Society Home, located in Pittsfield, MA, in addition to other quality antiques and art offerings. This 1840’s brick mansion was dedicated to women’s services and has been in operation for over a hundred years. Many of the original furnishings of this elegant residence are included.
Additional fresh country furniture and accessories being featured are from a Clinton Corners, NY untouched farmhouse, which has been in the same family for generations. Fancy goods and furniture from a very well appointed Tivoli, NY residence are an additional attraction for the informed buyers who regularly attend Carlsen Gallery’s quality auctions. A decade-long signature of Carlsen sales is the strong presence of “estate fresh” objects not seen in the antiques and art marketplace for many years.
The March auction features their usual fare of fine antiques including period, formal and country furniture; Civil War memorabilia, including a rare uniform and kepi which come to us from a direct descendant of the war; important oil paintings by listed artists; historical prints; Sterling silver; bronzes and sculpture; oriental carpets; clocks, and a rich selection of country and formal accessories and estate jewelry.
Additional highlights of the March 28 auction are two collections of the highly sought after Rose Mandarin and Rose Medallion porcelain; collections of Civil War memorabilia from the direct descendants of two Civil War soldiers including uniform, sword, letters, books, belt buckle, etcetera; a magnificent Bassett & Warford tall case clock, from Albany, NY, circa 1805; a Catskill Mountain House collection that includes local postcards, and more; stoneware; quilts, samplers and textiles, among other items of distinct appeal.
