The 20th Century Decorative Arts department at Stamford Auction Rooms showcases an extensive range of decorative interiors, glass, bronzes, ceramics, furniture and sculpture from the period.
With pieces from the Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Modernist and Art Deco periods as well as popular 20th Century British pottery collectables, and works by contemporary ceramicists and studio potters such as John Ward, it makes for a spectacular auction. Jessica is delighted to be offering some very big names in the art world such as Banksy, Damien Hirst Eduardo Paolozzi, Duncan Grant, Roy Lichenstein and Peter Blake and said ‘I am a big art collector myself, and so it is very exciting to have some contemporary works in the July auction – I hope people will be as interested as I am to see how they fair on auction day!’
Art Deco Bronzes
Art Deco bronze figural sculpture by artists such as Demetre Chiparus, Josef Lorenzl, Jaroslaw Horecj, Marcel Andre Bourain, Gauthier and Duberry have soared in value in recent years, and the examples Auctioneer Jessica will be selling under the hammer do not disappoint, with some of the examples up for grabs pictured below on a Jacques Emile Ruhlmann style rosewood sideboard.
Art Deco jewellery & mid century glass
Jessica feels that the current market is also very active for French glass makers such as René Lalique, Sabino Art glass, Baccarat and Holmegaard with superb examples to be sold in her July 31st specialist auction.
Among some of Stamford Auction Rooms other interesting lots is a Faberge gold vesta case with ruby cabochon, a stunning Art Deco aquamarine, diamond and ruby brooch and a quantity of some run Fornasetti ceramics and a tray – be sure to view the online catalogue and watch the auction live – even if you don’t bid, it will certainly be a show-stopping sale!
