Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Kadir ARSLAN, a talented Istanbul-based artist whose incredible paintings deserve wider recognition.

NEW YORK, NY, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fine Art Shippers is pleased to introduce Kadir ARSLAN, an Istanbul-based artist whose incredible paintings were exhibited at the recent edition of ARTAnkara International Contemporary Art Fair held in Ankara, Turkey on March 14-17. Kadir ARSLAN is a very talented artist, and we would like to recommend his work to anyone who is looking for high-quality contemporary art with a twist!

As an international fine art shipping company with agents and offices throughout the world, Fine Art Shippers has the honor of working with many prominent artists whose works are held in the permanent collections of the leading museums in the United States and abroad. We ship fine art for them, support in organizing gallery exhibitions, do art installation works, and provide them with a wide range of other services. Besides, we love to help young and upcoming artists whose incredible talent is unquestionable. We assist them with art logistics and do our best to spread their art and innovative ideas around the globe. One of these artists is Kadir ARSLAN, and we are delighted to share his work with the world.

Kadir ARSLAN is a Kurdish artist who lives and works in Istanbul, Turkey. Born in 1986, he has been fascinated with art all of his life, a passion that began with drawing on notebooks and schoolbooks in his early years. When ARSLAN was in primary school, his art teacher recognized the boy’s talent and encouraged him to join the talent exam, which marked the beginning of his artistic journey.

After graduation from Nevit Kodalli Fine Arts High School in Mersin in 2005, Kadir ARSLAN continued his education at Çukurova University in Adana, where he studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts for four years. ARSLAN’s career started right after his graduation from the university when the young artist opened his own studio in Istanbul. However, due to a car accident in 2010, which led to serious health problems, Kadir ARSLAN had to leave art for five years. He returned to painting only in 2015. The same year, ARSLAN opened his studio in Istanbul again and began working as a professional artist full time.

Kadir ARSLAN specializes in acrylic, ink, oil, and mixed-media paintings, with a focus on portraits. The artist believes that art has its own soul and character, and this is exactly what inspires him to create his absolutely stunning artworks. Besides, ARSLAN’s paintings have many symbolic references to Middle Eastern culture and history, which makes them special and undoubtedly very interesting.

At Fine Art Shippers, we wish Kadir ARSLAN a lot of success and all the best in his endeavors! He is an amazing artist, and his work deserves wider recognition and greater awareness outside of Turkey. Very recommended!

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig Scores Huge Win as Water Balloon Patent Award is Upped to $24.5 Million Plus Attorneys’ Fees

ZURU Bunch o Balloons

A federal judge doubled an award to $24.5 million for a toy company that won a case against Telebrands. Telebrands infringed patents on a water balloon device.

The court’s decision to double the underlying verdict is a testament to the well-planned and executed multi-day jury trial by the DBL patent litigation team.”

— Thomas Dunlap, Founding Partner

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a leading corporate and intellectual property law firm with offices across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and China, announces a significant victory in a high-profile patent lawsuit. Recently, a Texas federal judge doubled a jury award to $24.5 million and added $4.75 million in attorneys’ fees and expenses for a toy company that won a case against Telebrands Corporation. In doing so, the judge found that Telebrands infringed two patents on a water balloon device. The judge also found that Telebrands’ intentional copying of the patented product and obstructionist tactics throughout the litigation rendered the case “exceptional.”

Inventor Josh Malone of Tinnus Enterprises invented a unique toy that he called “Bunch O Balloons,” which allows someone to fill as many as 100 water balloons in approximately 60 seconds. After introducing his invention on Kickstarter.com, Bunch O Balloons went viral online, raised nearly $1 million in funding, and received mountains of praise from the national media, including Time, People, Sports Illustrated, the Today Show, and Good Morning America.

Bunch O Balloons is protected by numerous U.S. patents, and is produced by toy manufacturer ZURU pursuant to a license with Tinnus. Before ZURU could bring a commercial version of the toy to market, Telebrands copied the product and released an “As Seen on TV” infomercial-style ad campaign blitzing the U.S. consumer market. Telebrands called its product “Balloon Bonanza.”

In 2015, Tinnus and ZURU, who are represented by Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, sued Telebrands, claiming that Telebrands’ Balloon Bonanza product infringed their patent. In that lawsuit, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig won a preliminary injunction for the plaintiffs that prohibited Telebrands from selling Balloon Bonanza.

In response, Telebrands released a new product called “Battle Balloons” that made only minor changes from Telebrands’ previous Balloon Bonanza product. As a result, Tinnus and ZURU filed a second lawsuit against Telebrands in 2016, alleging that Battle Balloons also infringed their patents.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig also represents Tinnus and ZURU in that case. In this second lawsuit, the plaintiffs alleged that Telebrands deliberately copied Bunch O Balloons to produce Battle Balloons. Both products attach to a hose and fill multiple water balloons at once by channeling the water into the balloons. Tinnus’ and ZURU’s Bunch O Balloons product has repeatedly been the number one selling toy in the United States. Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig obtained a preliminary injunction against Battle Balloons and defended the preliminary injunction before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Despite Telebrands’ scorched-earth litigation tactics that the Texas court would ultimately find to be improper, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig ultimately prevailed at a jury trial on the merits in November 2017. At that trial, the jury found that the plaintiffs’ patents were valid, that Telebrands wilfully infringed the patents when it sold Battle Balloons, and that plaintiffs ZURU and Tinnus deserved $10.25 million in lost profits and $2 million in royalties. The trial team led by Tom Dunlap included partners Cortland Putbrese and Brian Koide and attorneys Eric Olavson and K.C. Harrison.

Recently, U.S. District Judge Robert W. Schroeder III, the judge who presided over the trial, issued a 64-page opinion in which he added to the plaintiffs’ trial victory by doubling the jury award to $24.5 million. Judge Schroeder also awarded plaintiffs $4.75 million in attorney fees and expenses, and denied Telebrands’ motions for a new trial. It appears this is the most this judge has ever enhanced a jury verdict award in a patent infringement case.

In reaching this decision, Judge Schroeder criticized Telebrands’ conduct in the case. “After Balloon Bonanza was enjoined, Telebrands only made superficial changes to the product’s housing and renamed it Battle Balloons,” Judge Schroeder wrote. “In reality, Battle Balloons was functionally identical to Balloon Bonanza.” The court also noted several instances of litigation misconduct by Telebrands, including the filing of an emergency motion that a magistrate judge found was not an emergency and the filing of several other non-meritorious motions. The court concluded that Telebrands’ “excessive motions practice demonstrated an intent to delay and obstruct this action.” The judge also noted that Telebrands further failed to timely comply with discovery requests and attempted to reargue issues that were already decided by the court.

Despite these tactics, Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig persevered, obtaining a final judgment of approximately $30 million for Tinnus and ZURU. “We are extremely pleased with the outcome. The court’s decision to double the underlying verdict is a testament to the well-planned and executed multi-day jury trial by the DBL patent litigation team,” noted partner Tom Dunlap.

Retailers Bed Bath & Beyond, Fry’s Electronics, The Kroger Company, Sears Holding Corp., and Walgreen Co. were also named in the suit, and they are responsible for paying a small portion of the damages, according to court records.

The patents at issue are U.S. Patent Nos. 9,242,749 and 9,315,282.

E L Weeks

Outdoor figural oil on canvas rendering by Edwin Lord Weeks (American, 1849-1903), 24 inches by 20 inches in a gold gilt frame and signed “E. L. Weeks” lower left ($82,600).

The Houdon busts both sold to a single European buyer, bidding by phone. Clients did fly in from Europe and there was strong interest well into the six figures.”

— Matt Cottone

GENESEO, NY, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two rediscovered marble busts by the French 18th century sculptor Jean-Antoine Houdon (French, Versailles 1741-1828 Paris) sold for a combined $1.475 million at the Fine Art & Antiques Auction held March 23rd by Cottone Auctions, online and in the firm’s gallery. The busts were the top achievers in an auction that featured just over 300 lots, totaling over $3 million in sales.

Both busts were recorded in the FRICK Art Reference Library in New York in 1932 and had been passed down through the descendants of the Honorable Irwin Boyle Laughlin (1871-1941), an American diplomat serving in the State Department from 1903-1932 who acquired them in 1926 from the Paris dealer Paul Gouvert. They were rediscovered, remarkably, at an estate in Geneseo, where Cottone is based. The busts had been previously overlooked in a 2000 estate appraisal by an auction house in New York.

"The Houdon busts both sold to a single European buyer, bidding by phone" said Matt Cottone of Cottone Auctions. “All of the major Old Masters dealers at TEFAF Maastricht were on the phones. Clients did fly in from Europe and there was strong interest well into the six figures. We heard rumors the busts are going into an institution’s collection, but nothing’s been confirmed.”

The busts, reductions in Serevezza marble, represent Jean-Jacques Rousseau (which gaveled for $778,800) and Georges Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (which brought $696,200. They stood 11 and 11 ½ inches in height, respectively, including the socle. Each was signed and dated (one 1788, the other 1789) and both are recorded as having been exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1789. "Aux portraits que tu en fais, je les reconnais ces charmants modéles… nos sublimes J. J. Rousseau et Buffon." The busts were catalogued in-house by Michael Parsons.

Laughlin formed an extensive collection of French eighteenth century drawings while ambassador to Spain, with help from Agnews Gallery, London. The collection was of outstanding quality, and included over three hundred drawings by Fragonard alone. Laughlin built his home in Washington, The Meridian House, by John Russell Pope, in the Louis XVI style, and assisted in the planning of the West Building of the National Gallery of Art.

The auction overall featured fine art, Tiffany lamps, 20th Century Art and design (which was sold on behalf of the David Anderson Grandchildren’s Trust in Buffalo, New York, as well as fine decorative arts, furniture and Asian objects. For those unable to attend the sale in person, online bidding was offered by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and the Cottone Auctions website.

Following are additional highlights from the auction. All prices quoted include the buyer’s premium.

One other lot reached the six figures. It was a rare set of nine Chinese blue and white Eight Immortals bowls, each one 2 inches tall and 4 ¼ inches in diameter and carrying the 6-character Daoguang character reign mark (1821-1850). The bowls were decorated with the eight immortals in clouds over swirling waves, with the center interior depicting the three star gods ($118,000).

An outdoor figural oil on canvas rendering by Edwin Lord Weeks (American, 1849-1903), 24 inches by 20 inches in a gold gilt frame and signed “E. L. Weeks” lower left, went for $82,600; while an oil on canvas winter scene by Aldro Thompson Hibbard (American, 1886-1972), 40 inches by 50 inches and purchased directly from the artist’s wife, also signed, realized $43,600.

Staying with fine art, an oil on mahogany panel depiction of a man in a hat by the Filipino artist Fernando Cueto Amorsolo (1892-1972), done in 1927, signed and 16 inches by 13 inches, made $26,000. Also, an oil on canvas winter landscape by John Fabian Carlson (Swedish/American, 1875-1947), signed, 30 inches by 40 inches in the original frame, changed hands for $22,400.

Several beautiful Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) lamps illuminated the room before finding new buyers. They included a Bamboo table lamp, ($85,500); a leaded glass and patinated bronze Arrowroot table lamp with a 14 inch shade ($62,500); and a Turtleback table lamp, ($44,800).

Other outstanding Tiffany Studios creations also came up for bid, like the fine and rare decorated Cypriote vase, manufactured circa 1899, 9 inches tall, with the rough surface textures resembling the decomposed surfaces of Roman glass buried for centuries ($36,600); and the circa-1910 side table, boasting a brownish-green patina and handsomely made from quarter-sawn oak ($31,800).

Also sold were a Steinway Model B piano with ebony veneer, ($35,500); a late 19th century Serapi rug measuring 12 feet by 10 feet ($17,100); and a rare Steuben Aurene & Millefiori decorated vase, 14 inches tall, decorated with leaf and vines and a ruffled top and signed “Aurene Haviland”. The vase hammered for $6,500.

Next up for Cottone Auctions is an Art & Antiques Auction slated for Saturday, May 18th, also online and in the Geneseo gallery. Already consigned is a rare “Theo A. Kochs” (Chicago) salesman’s sample barber chair. Consignments are currently being accepted. To inquire, please call (585) 243-1000 or send an e-mail to matt@cottoneauctions.com.

Experts to Offer Information on Brand Protection & Anti-Conterfeiting

Jeremiah Pastrick

Intellectual Property and Brand Protection Experts Will Provide Valuable Insights and Guidance on the American Knife & Tool Institute's website.

They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the issue that has a tremendous impact on our industry, as well as a lot of other U.S. businesses.”

— Mark Schreiber, President CRKT, Chair AKTI Anti-Couinterfeiting

CODY, WY, UNITED STATES, March 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) is pleased to announce that two experts in the fields of intellectual property and brand protection will be guest contributors on the nonprofit’s website. With the global cost of counterfeits projects to reach almost $2 trillion by 20221, AKTI and its members recognize that creating thriving businesses in today’s marketplace requires a toolkit to address this issue. Information, insights and helpful tips on these topics will be provided by Denise Mosteller and Jeremiah Pastrick in the new resource section titled “Brand Protection.”

"When I first started working in the IP field Google didn’t exist,” said Denise Mosteller. “The idea that we would need to worry about counterfeits being sold online, or on something as big as Amazon, was inconceivable. We used our computers to write reports, not purchase products. In the brand protection world, things are constantly changing and evolving, and we need to do the same. I am excited to share my experience and skills with AKTI. “

Denise Mosteller holds a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Indiana University and has over 22 years of investigation, brand management and intellectual property experience. Ms. Mosteller has participated in countless criminal and civil investigations and enforcement actions involving everything from individual online sellers to global Chinese manufacturers. During her career Denise has worked with both federal and state law enforcement agencies to facilitate the arrest of numerous counterfeiters.

“The globalization of trade has brought with it tremendous capacity to expand markets and grow business opportunity but with that blessing has also come the curse of increased piracy, counterfeiting and IP theft,” said Jeremiah Pastrick. “Understanding how to develop, secure and protect your business’ intellectual property is an essential 21st Century business skill. I’m thrilled at the opportunity to assist AKTI and its members in these endeavors.”

Jeremiah Pastrick has worked in the field of intellectual property development and protection for over 15 years. Mr. Pastrick received his B.S. in public management from Indiana University in 2001 and graduated from Indiana University School of Law in 2006. He served as both Vice President of a consulting firm specializing in international intellectual property (IP) development, protection and anti-counterfeiting as well as IP counsel to a wide range of global IP owners.

“We’re very excited to have Denise and Jeremiah provide information to our members and others on a regular basis on our website,” said Mark Schreiber, President of CRKT and chair of AKTI’s Anti-Counterfeiting Committee. “Together they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the issue that has a tremendous impact on our industry as well as a lot of other U.S. businesses.”

The first “Brand Protection” article on the website will be “Intellectual Property 101” and can be viewed soon at www.AKTI.org.

The Wigwam Auction – a celebration of the country’s Great Basin Native American heritage – was held by Holabird Western Americana Collections in Reno, Nevada.

RENO, NV, UNITED STATES, March 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A spectacular lithograph on paper signed by the important Native American artist Tommy Wayne (“T.C.”) Cannon (1946-1978), titled Waiting for the Bus, Andarko Princess, sold for $12,500 at a five-day Wigwam Auction – a celebration of the country’s Great Basin Native American heritage – held March 7th-11th by Holabird Western Americana Collections in Reno.

The auction was conducted in Holabird’s gallery located at 3555 Airway Drive (Suite #308) in Reno, as well as online via iCollector.com and Invaluable.com. Headlining the event was the Moe and Mary Royels Great Basin Wigwam Collection. The items in the Royels’ collections reflect the rich history the state of Nevada enjoys in the unique place known as the Great Basin.

The Wigwam Collection is a fantastic array of Native American collectibles, art and artifacts. A number of items (mainly dresses) were made especially for Mary Royels, plus a few for Moe, by local Paiute friends. The collections included baby baskets, beaded baskets, art depicting early man in the Great Basin by William Moore, stone artifacts, moccasins and stone projectile points.

The T.C. Cannon litho, from 1978, was the auction’s top lot. Depicting a woman seated on a bench waiting for a bus, it was signed, numbered (#24/125) and embossed by the artist. The print was housed in a double mat frame, 37 inches by 30 inches. Another litho of the same work is on display at the Smithsonian Institute. Cannon, from Oklahoma, was a member of the Kiowa Tribe.

Day 1, on Thursday, March 7th, featured rare vintage bottles (165 lots); saloon items (9 lots); cowboy collectibles (34 lots); firearms and weaponry (26 lots); gaming collectibles (10 lots); and numismatic items, to include books, checks, coins, dies, ephemera, medals, “so-called” dollars, tokens and more. Over 500 lots – a full auction by itself – crossed the auction block on Day 1.

Day 2, March 8th, was packed with 550 lots of Americana, to include advertising, art, books and directories, calendars, Gold Rush, postal history, militaria, political lots, Wells Fargo & Express, silverware, flatware, non-mining stock certificates, toys and World’s Fair. A group of ten orange Republic of China 6% two-year secured gold loan treasury notes from 1919 gaveled for $6,562.

Day 3, March 9th, contained Part 1 of the Native Americana, to include artwork, apparel, gloves, moccasins, accessories, jewelry, trade beads, artifacts, pipes, dies and baby baskets. Also sold that day were 52 lots of artwork (including the T.C. Cannon litho), for a grand total of 604 lots.

Day 3 included an outstanding vintage Navajo Squash Blossom necklace boasting 16 beautiful turquoise nuggets from the #8 mine in Eureka county, Nevada ($2,500); and a high-quality serigraph by Franz Scholder, titled Indian with a Gun, #49/80, artist signed and 22 inches by 33 inches ($1,875). Scholder’s artwork is distinctive, colorful and very popular among collectors.

Day 4, on Sunday, March 10th, featured Part 2 of the Native Americana, to include pottery, baskets, dolls, books, photographs, postcards, rugs and weavings, ephemera and collectibles. Also offered were transportation (244 lots) and railroadiana (184 lots) – 301 total lots in all.

Day 4 featured a large, historical and possibly ancient cooking basket, 15 inches in diameter, not ceremonial, used for everyday cooking, found in northwest Nevada 50 years ago, never buried ($3,125); and a hand-woven Navajo rug with a tribal design, 39 ½ inches by 44 inches, made by America’s Natives from the Russell Foutz Indian Room in Farmington, New Mexico ($2,875).

A collection of 40 red Imperial Chinese government railway 100-pound bonds, issued in 1911 by the Hong Kong & Shanghai Banking Corp. in London, hammered for $2,625. Also, an unissued, unsigned and uncancelled first mortgage 10% gold loan in the amount of $500 for the Gilpin County (Colo.) Tram Railway Co., with all ten coupons, printed circa 1871-1873, made $1,625.

A large, circa 1900-1910 Mono basket, 19 ½ inches tall, intended for utility or cooking but never used and probably made for sale to the Anglo market, displaying zig-zag patterns and classic Paiute four bi-symmetric starts, achieved $2,625; and a historic and possibly ancient flat cooking basket, 25 inches in diameter, possibly from Steamboat or McDermott (N.D.) realized $1,875.

A large, circa 1900 winnowing basket, 28 ½ inches long by 21 ½ inches wide, with open basket twining, utilitarian (but never utilized), a pine nut harvest relic from the Great Basin, finished at $1,750. Also, a camp-size, vintage Washoe water pack basket “Tus” in a sacred red ochre color, 20 inches tall, 12 inches diameter, with close twined willow and hemp handles, reached $2,000.

Day 5, on Monday, March 11th, will be dedicated to minerals (13 lots) and mining collectibles (578 lots). The mining portion will contain artifacts and assay, books, explosives, maps, mine lighting, signs, spoons, mining stocks, ephemera and collectibles – a dream day for collectors.

Top lots from Day 5 included a lavish hardcover prospectus ad accompanying map for the Keystone Silver Mining Company in Reese River, Nevada, from 1865, in pristine condition ($2,000); and an 1884 stock certificate for the Harmony Borax Mining Company (Death Valley, Calif.), early #23 for 18 shares, issued to a Mr. William T. Coleman, with signatures ($2,500).
