Event Description

Skinner to Auction European Furniture and Decorative Arts, featuring Fine Silver


BOSTON, Mass. – March 25, 2010 – Skinner, Inc. will host an auction of European Furniture and Decorative Arts, featuring Fine Silver on Saturday, April 10th at 10 a.m. in Skinner’s Boston gallery. Nearly 1,000 items will be up for bid, with about half the offerings representing lots of fine silver.

The auction’s cover lot is a Tiffany & Co. sterling fruit bowl with bacchante handles, attributed to one of Tiffany’s most celebrated designers and chasers, Eugene J. Soligny. Estimated at $15,000 to $20,000 the bowl is monogrammed EBO for Ella Belzer Ottmann, daughter of Emily Belzer and Jacob Ottmann, a prominent German-American businessman who founded the J. Ottmann Lithographic Company. Other silver highlights include an important George III silver-gilt flagon made in London in 1792 by John Schofield. The monogram, AF, is topped by a coronet of a British prince, either Prince Augustus Frederick or Prince Adolphus Frederick, both sons of King George III and Queen Charlotte. The flagon is estimated at $3,000 to $5,000.

Also featured is an extensive collection of World War I orders and medals representing such countries as Russia, Turkey, England, and Romania. Estimated at $1,500 to $2,000 the medals and orders came from the estate of David Scotti of Providence, RI. A good group of bronzes will be offered including a Pierre Eugene Emile-Herbert bronze figure of Oedipus, Oedipe, estimated at $5,000 to $7,000. A pair of finely painted KPM porcelain plaques after works by Gerrit Dou, estimated at $6,000 to $8,000, highlights a selection of ceramics.

Furniture including chairs, chests, tables and case pieces from England, France, Germany, and Italy will also be offered.
