MALVERN, PA., UNITED STATES, April 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MALVERN, Pa. – Just over 300 hand-selected Chinese antiques are up for bid in Converse Auctions’ internet-only Important Spring Chinese Auction, already online at the Converse website (www.ConverseAuctions.com), as well as two additional online bidding platforms: LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Live bidding begins on Friday, May 4th, at 10 am Eastern.

“We’ve spent the last several months gathering the best of the best Chinese antiques for this important online auction,” said Todd Converse of Converse Auctions, based in Malvern. “The items include Ming and Qing dynasty porcelain, Republic Period porcelain, monumental Qing dynasty cloisonné, Hetian jade carvings, a 15th century Tibetan gold gilt Buddha and thangkas.”

The list continues with Chinese Export silver and porcelain, Chinese watercolor paintings, zitan and huanghuali furniture and more. Remarkably, despite the lengthy and impressive list of many categories just recited, the sale’s top lot may end up being a set of eight 1980 Chinese Golden Monkey stamps. The set, being sold as a single lot, has a pre-sale estimate of $12,000-$18,000.

Two other challengers carry $10,000-$20,000 estimates. One is a 15th century bronze, gold and silver Buddha on a three-tiered geometric throne, overall 23 ½ inches tall, from a Tibetan monetary in Lhasa, purchased at a Hong Kong art market in 1986. The other is a monumental pair of phoenix and dragon cloisonné vases, 21 inches tall, having necks with archaic borders, bats on wide panels and a circular reserve on the bottom with flowers and four-character Qianlong mark.

Chinese zitan wood is very dense and makes for wonderfully durable and gorgeous furniture. An impressive 20th century elaborately carved and pierced dragon throne, fit for a king and topped by a large dragon head with his tongue curling down into a fire pearl, 50 ½ inches in height, is expected to command $5,000-$8,000; while a pair of Qing zitan and semiprecious stone cabinets, traditionally tapered in shape and with lovely mirrored village scenes, should rise to $4,000-$6,000.

For zitan fans on a budget, a long carved zitan altar table, 79 inches in length, with the apron carved in facing dragons below the table top and ruyi flowers down the curving legs, carries an estimate of $1,000-$2,000. Also, a pair of mirrored carved huanghuali etageres with various open shelving bordered by carved and pierced meander and flower and tendril patterns, should reach $2,000-$4,000.

Chinese vases are enormously popular because they’re beautiful, colorful and make spectacular decorative accents. The auction has a marvelous selection. A few exceptional lots include:

• A 19th century blue and white trumpet-shaped palace vase with two facing dragons, 24 ¾ inches tall each, painted with an abundant blooming peony garden (est. $3,000-$5,000).
• A Ming dynasty bottle vase with the Zhengde (1506-1521) mark on the front and having a delicate yellow background with decoration in shades of green (est. $2,000-$4,000).
• A Qianlong “100 Children” famille rose vase, the body showing celebrating children holding banners and lanterns parading outdoors, 14 inches tall (est. $1,000-$1,500).
• A 20th century Republic Period monkey and horse vase depicting two horses standing by a stream and a monkey in a nearby tree, with calligraphy on the back (est. $1,000-$1,500).
• A blue and yellow vase, 7 inches tall, with a bright yellow glazed background, with blue flowers and tendril on the neck and body, and lion ring handles (est. $800-$1,200).

A Qing Qianlong cloisonné bird cage with perch, feeders and bird (enameled) inside, with two removable feeding bowls (as is the bird), having a turquoise background with flower and tendril designs on the door and marked on the bottom within by a ruyi border, should make $3,000-$5,000. Also, a pair of fine Yongzheng Chinese porcelain bird bowls, with a female shown nesting while the male bird perches nearby, surrounded by flowers and butterflies, is estimated at $800-$1,200.

Thangkas (Tibetan Buddhist religious paintings on cotton, silk applique, usually depicting a deity, scene or mandala), are desired by collectors. This sale’s got several, including a 40 inch by 25 ½ inch fine silk example having blue Yamantaka with flaming hair, a dragon at the top and skulls and flaming clouds throughout (est. $1,000-$1,500); and a framed bronze thangka, 17 ½ inches by 23 ½ inches, showing a man and woman wearing masks, standing on a beast (est. $500-$800).

A scroll and a screen have identical estimates of $2,000-$4,000. The long hand scroll of delicately painted antlers and calligraphy with jade clip is a staggering 254 inches wide by 10 inches tall (painted area 85 inches by 10 inches), The large fan-shaped stone table screen (22 ¾ inches by 17 inches by 8 ½ inches) has applied stone decoration illustrating a village, river and mountain scene with a bridge, trees, houses, men and clouds. The reverse depicts two game players seated in a garden.

Good things come in small Chinese boxes. A pair of carved and pierced dzi beads with a phoenix on each, stored in a custom leather and suede box measuring just 2 ½ inches by 3 ¼ inches, has an estimate of $300-$500. Also, a Qing Imperial green jade dragon seal in a wooden box, this one a bit larger at 10 inches by 7 inches, featuring a fierce carved dragon top and a carved artist’s mark bottom, encased in a box decorated with an archaic dragon with a flaming pearl, should hit $1,000-$1,500.

An octagonal brush pot (pot for holding Chinese writing brushes), with multi-colored dragons swirling on top of a yellow background amongst cobalt clouds with blue flames, sitting on four feet and marked on the bottom, is estimated at $1,000-$1,500. Also, an antique moon flask, 29 inches tall, picturing reverse dragon swirls in clouds in the middle, spotted dog handles, a tall foot with flower and tendril design and flowers and phoenixes on the sides, should hit $800-$1,200.

A pair of rare antique, carved, polychrome portraits on sections of bone, depicting a Chinese emperor and empress, each with marks on their sleeves, flowers painted in red and cloud patterns on their robes, 11 inches tall, should finish at $800-$1,200; while an eight-piece Rose Medallion set (seven plates and a platter) with pierced borders, in traditional bright colors with alternating reserves of interior scenes and birds and flowers has an estimate of $500-$800.

William Lightner reflects on award-winning contributions to fields of religion and spirituality

Crediting much of his success to his education, William Lightner has gone on to lead a varied and prosperous life.

MARIETTA, GA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — From finance executive to evangelist and public speaker, the Judson University, Illinois, graduate was recently awarded the title of 2018 Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who.

"Judson University was an outstanding college for me because of the higher education setting and their worship of God – they made me into the man I am today," remarks William Lightner.

Graduating the Illinois-based educational institution before joining the military, and later taking up successful careers in professional sales and finance, Lightner has further gone on to travel the globe in his role as a religious evangelist.

Strathmore's Who's Who recognizes Lightner for his years of dedicated hard work in the fields of religion and spirituality. He was selected from over 1,100 shortlisted individuals to take this year's title.

Lightner, also the author of End Time Prophecy Made Easy, has traveled tens of thousands of miles in his religious and spiritual pursuits, all the while serving God in his new-found evangelical role.

"I've traveled tens of thousands of miles to almost 30 different countries over the course of several years," explains Lightner, who has assisted hundreds of individuals around the world, often on a one-to-one basis, in finding comfort in religion.

During his travels, Lightner has also addressed vast crowds typically numbering several thousand at a time. Here, he would teach people to acknowledge fellowship and faith through prayer, allowing them to live what he calls, "a more sound life as a follower of Christ."

Receiving news of his award win, Lightner remarks, "I'm incredibly proud to have been selected as this year's Religious and Spiritual Services Professional of the Year by Strathmore's Who's Who. It's fantastic recognition and a great accolade."

"I couldn't be happier," he adds.

Strathmore's Who's Who is a yearly publication which profiles and features successful individuals from the worlds of education, medicine, research, healthcare, business, law, government, sciences, engineering, and the arts. The predominantly biographical publication honors professionals who have demonstrated leadership and achievement in their respective fields.

Lightner explains, "Strathmore's Who's Who encourages accomplished professionals to network, take part in research, share information, and carry out mutually beneficial business."

The awards also recognize achievement in fields such as elementary and special needs education, emergency medicine, geoscience and geological consulting, healthcare therapy, and literary arts, as well as many others.

First educated at a private Baptist school, Lightner later joined Vestal High School in New York, before completing his education at Judson University.

It wasn't until later in life that Lightner decided to take a break from the mainstream, choosing instead to undertake a six-month training and development process to join a well known religious mission. "They're one organization I've loved doing work for," notes Lightner. "I'm honored to be connected with such a great group."

Now recognized as a popular evangelist and public speaker, Lightner believes that a considerable degree of his success in this area is owed to his passionate and personable nature. "I also believe it's about being powerful with words, which is something I strive to do every day," adds Lightner in closing.

Dog And Cat Meat Consumption Prohibition Added To House Farm Bill

Marc Ching

Dog Meat Trade

Rescued Dog

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today the United States House of Representatives Agriculture Committee approved an amendment offered by Congressman Jeff Denham (R-CA) to place the language of H.R. 1406, the Dog and Cat Meat Prohibition Act into the House of Representatives Farm Bill.

H.R. 1406, authored by Congressman Alcee Hasting (D-FL) and Congressman Vern Buchanan (R-FL), along with 240 co-sponsors from the House, prohibits the slaughter, trade or import/export of dogs and cats for human consumption in the United States – a practice still legal in 44 states.

“I am overjoyed that the House Agriculture Committee has put the language of H.R.1406 into the farm bill and I thank Congressman Denham for his strong support for our cause and for making the amendment” stated Marc Ching, founder and President Emeritus of the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, the sponsors of H.R.1406.

“This is just one small victory in our effort to ban this horrible practice in our country and internationally, but it is an important one and one that could not have been possible without our great team and the strong support we have had from our great authors Congressman Hastings and Congressman Buchanan. There is still a lot of work to do but we are closer now than we have ever been before,” concluded Ching.

The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, founded by Mr. Ching in 2011 has been a leader in bringing global awareness to the international practice of torturing and butchering of dogs and cats for consumption. Mr. Ching regularly travels to Asia where he personally rescues dogs from this trade, often putting his life in jeopardy to do so. H.R. 1406 is the Foundation’s first legislative effort.

The Farm Bill will move forward for a vote on the House floor and then to conference committee where it will be merged with the Senate version. A final bill is expected to be voted on in September.

Nearly 350 lots of toys, comic books and comic art will be sold to the highest bidder in an auction slated for Saturday, April 28, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers.

It’s like being a child again back in 1978, going to Almac’s with my mother to pick out my Star Wars figure for the week. The 1985 Power of the Force AT-AT Driver is sure to be a hit with the force.”

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, April 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CRANSTON, R.I. – Nearly 350 lots of toys, comic books and comic art will be sold to the highest bidder in an auction planned for Saturday, April 28th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, in partnership with Altered Reality Entertainment and Travis Landry. The sale will be held online and in the Bruneau & Co. gallery, located at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, at 11 am Eastern.

The auction will open with 87 lots of vintage Star Wars items, featuring a selection from the collection of David Montauck in Brooklyn, N.Y. The group is highlighted by a 1985 Power of The Force AT-AT Driver, graded AFA 85 and packaged with a Warlock coin – a hard cardback to find, as it only saw limited release in Australia (est. $5,500-$7,500).

“It’s like being a child again back in 1978, going to Almac’s with my mother to pick out my Star Wars figure for the week,” said Kevin Bruneau, the president and auctioneer of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers. “The 1985 Power of the Force AT-AT Driver is sure to be the strongest with the force, but that’s only one of several gems from the Montauck collection certain to get attention.”

One such gem is the 1977 Star Wars Luke Skywalker theater display, exceedingly rare and with an estimate of $2,500-$3,500. Luke stands a towering 8 feet 3 inches tall, striking an iconic pose from the style C one-sheet. The display is constructed of cut plywood, with a laminated image, and originated in Europe – most likely England or Italy. Montauck found it in a theater trash bin.

Other Star Wars highlights will include a 1978 Star Wars Power Passers Duel at Death Star Race Set, graded CAS 85, and Droids Series Tig Fromm, graded CAS 70+. The Montauk collection will also feature an additional 17 Power of the Force graded figures.

The second portion of the catalog will offer an eclectic mix of vintage American toys, led by a CAS high-grade set of ten 1988 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The set will be sold in single lots and all are early production variants. Also sold will be a 1964 GI Joe Action Pilot Dress Uniform set and a Knickerbocker Humpty Dumpty dart gun set, circa 1950s.

The GI Joe Action Pilot Dress Uniform set is from the collection of a previous Hasbro employee in Central Falls, R.I. The individually carded set includes the 7804 dress jacket, 7805 dress pants and 7806 dress shirt. Each piece of equipment is factory sealed in its original cellophane, with a GI Joe helmet form sticker. The set should bring $600-$900.

The third portion of the catalog will offer over 220 lots of Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Modern Age comics and original artwork. “It’s like Christmas in spring,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer who is also a partner in the sale. “This auction is certain to draw collectors out of the woodwork with a great selection of comics and comic art.”

Landry added, “I’m most excited to see the original artwork for page 16 of Avengers #69, the first appearance of the Grand Master, cross the block. To think that page is the actual physical piece of paper on which Sal Buscema and Sam Grainger worked their artistic and creative magic gives me the chills. It’s a true piece of Marvel and all comic history.”

The page 16 artwork was executed around 1969 and carries a pre-sale estimate of $8,000-$12,000. It introduced the Grand Master character to the Marvel universe, later portrayed in an ironically hysterical way by Jeff Goldblum in the movie Thor: Ragnarok. The page is one of four from a collection out of Rumford, R.I. It is a rare piece of Marvel history.

Another piece of rare and highly collectible cover art is lot 165: Volume 2, Issue 2, pages 20 and 21 of DC Comics Justice League, drawn by the illustrators Jim Lee and Scott Williams and signed by both. The action-packed double splash features Batman, Flash, Green Lantern and Superman, facing an onslaught of parademons (est. $8,000-$12,000).

The Golden Age comics will be led by a copy of Timely Comics Sub-Mariner, issue #24 (Winter, 1947), graded CBCS 8.0 (est. $2,500-$4,000). The comic book features just the third appearance of Namora, and a bondage cover. Only one known copy is graded higher, at 8.5. This example, with white pages and an 8.0 grade, is sure to attract interest.

Other comic books in the auction include the following:

• Marvel Comics Strange Tales #110 (July 1963), CGC 4.5, the first appearance of Doctor Strange, Ancient One, Nightmare and Wong (est. $1,200-$1,800).
• Marvel Comics Uncanny X-Men #145 (May 1981), CBCS 9.9, the newsstand edition and featuring a Doctor Doom cover and appearance (est. $1,200-$1,800).
• DC Comics Superman #46 (May-June 1947), CBCS 9.0, featuring the first appearance of Superboy in a title and a Mr. Mxyzptlk cameo (est. $1,000-$1,500).

Oil on canvas painting of a German church interior, signed “P. Andover” (est. $1,500-$3,000).

A two-day Estate Treasures Auction highlighted by the Phillips “Pete” Hathaway collection of fine items from his historic Greek Revival home Ragamont House.

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, UNITED STATES, April 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – A two-day Estate Treasures Auction highlighted by the Phillips “Pete” Hathaway collection of fine items pulled from his historic Greek Revival home Ragamont House in northwestern Connecticut, plus merchandise from other estates and collections, will be held Wednesday and Thursday, April 25th-26th, by Nye & Company Auctioneers, at 10 am both days.

The auction will be held online and in Nye & Company’s showroom located at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield. The April 25th session will be a live auction, featuring 439 lots. The following day will be a timed auction, with 222 lots. For those unable to attend in person, online bidding will be provided by Liveauctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be taken.

The Phillips “Pete” Hathaway collection (lots 255-601, spanning both auction days) is befitting of a man who was raised in a Baltimore home that was filled with gorgeous 18th century English furniture and decorative arts, attended college in Lugano, Switzerland, trained at Christie’s in London and served as head of the 18th Century Continental Furniture Department at Sotheby’s.

Hathaway presided over many of Sotheby’s famous and record-breaking “celebrity auctions,” to include items from the estates of Andy Warhol, Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor and Gianni Versace. In 2002 he purchased Ragamont House, in Salisbury, Connecticut, and embarked on a two-year renovation of the derelict historic landmark.

He designed the home with the same discerning eye he used to outfit his opulent New York City apartment. The many fine appointments included an exotic portrait of the Newhab of Arcot, a watercolor of an Italian Grenadier and his dog (purchased from the Bill Blass collection), figural and abstract drawings, fine Georgian furniture and silver, and Turkish and Bessarabian carpets.

Noteworthy lots up for bid from the Hathaway collection include a partly ebonized pair of 19th century English Regency brass-bound campaign chests, 39 ½ inches tall by 43 ½ inches wide (est. $4,000-$6,000); and a pair of cast-bronze angel wings made in Argentina in the 19th or 20th century (and acquired by Hathaway in Buenos Aires), 44 ½ inches long (est. $3,000-$5,000).

Artwork from Ragamont House will include a watercolor on paper by Allen Blagden (Am., b. 1936), depicting moose antlers and titled Locked Horns (est. $2,000-$3,000); an oil on canvas marine rendering of a sinking battleship by Carl W. Peters (Am., 1897-1980), artist signed (est. $1,200-$1,800); and a graphite on paper by Matt Wood, titled Goya’s Dog (est. $800-$1,200).

The auction will also feature property from a private collection in Montclair, N.J., to include a late 17th/early 18th century Baroque inlaid walnut desk and bookcase, probably northern Italian, 7 feet 8 inches tall (est. $8,000-$12,000); and an American 20th century Gothic Revival mahogany tall case clock with Westminster-Whittington musical movement, 8 feet 5 inches tall and, though unmarked, is of the quality, size and composition of clocks bearing the Tiffany moniker (est. $3,000-$5,000).

Also offered will be property from a New York City gentleman (lots 127-203) that will include two artworks, both estimated at $3,000-$5,000. One is a KPM painted porcelain plaque, 19th or 20th century, depicting General Hindenburg (the namesake of the aerial disaster), 9 inches by 6 inches. The other is an oil on canvas painting by Paul Brach (Am., 1924-2007), titled Chamber.

The auction will also feature a pair of oil on canvas portraits, possibly painted by Patrick Henry Davenport (1803-1890), being offered as one lot (est. $3,000-$5,000); an Empire cherrywood tall case clock, made in America in the first half of the 19th century and having a white painted dial signed Emanuel Meyli of Lebanon, 8 feet tall (est. $2,500-$5,000); and an oil on canvas painting titled Interior of Our Lady in Zwiefalter, Germany, signed “P. Andover” (est. $1,500-$3,000).

A preview and pre-bid began on April 11th and will continue through April 25th. Hours for the preview and pre-bid are weekdays, from 10 am-4 pm; and Sunday, April 22nd, from noon-4 pm.
John Nye had a long and fruitful career at Sotheby’s before he and his wife, Kathleen, acquired Dawson’s in 2003 and started Dawson & Nye. With the move to Bloomfield seven years later, they renamed the business to Nye & Company (Auctioneers, Appraisers, Antiques). The firm is nationwide, but the vast bulk of the business comes from trusts and estates in the tri-state area.
