— Dan Morphy, President of Morphy Auctions

DENVER, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagine a selection of fine and decorative art whose quality is so superior, it all might easily have come from mythical Downton Abbey or the grandest of Newport estates. That’s the impression collectors might get while browsing through Morphy’s June 18-19 auction catalog. The expertly curated, fresh-to-market selection of 2,500+ lots would please even the most discerning art connoisseur.

There are so many highlights within the immense array of Tiffany Studios and European cameo glass lamps featured in the Tuesday opening session, collectors will find themselves spoiled for choice. A stunning Tiffany Studios Daffodil table lamp with its vibrant spring palette is a wonder to behold when illuminated. The floral shade rests on an outstanding Tiffany Studios Pineapple lamp base. Its repousse glass sections within a reticulated openwork frame render the appearance of jade cabochons, making the base a virtual artwork in itself. The ultimate embodiment of Tiffany artistry, this show-stopping lamp is expected to make $120,000-$160,000 at auction.

“The Tiffany name represents the crème de la crème of the American art glass tradition,” said Morphy Auctions’ president, Dan Morphy. “More than a century has passed since Tiffany Studios first produced its spectacular lamps, and they’re still in a class of their own. There are far more buyers pursuing them than there are sellers willing to part with their treasured lamps, so there’s always a demand for choice examples.”

Among the many other Tiffany table, floor and ceiling (chandelier) lamps on offer in the June sale is a superb Tiffany Dragonfly lamp laden with heavily rippled glass and gorgeous cabochon jewels. It has a small Tiffany tag inside the shade and is stamped “TIFFANY STUDIOS NEW YORK 368” on its base. It comes to auction with a $75,000-$90,000 estimate. A profusely decorated Tiffany Poppy lamp could reach $60,000-$80,000, while a charming Black-Eyed Susan lamp carries a $42,000-$50,000 estimate.

An exceptional lineup of cameo glass includes many coveted Daum Nancy and Galle designs, led by a monumental 31-inch-tall Galle scenic table lamp. The dome shade depicts a breathtaking scene of trees and mountainside houses overlooking a lake. The matching cameo-glass base displays large trees and purple mountains connected by a bridge. One of the finest European decorative entries in the sale, it is estimated at $45,000-$60,000.

Another masterpiece is the 17½-inch Daum Nancy enameled cameo vase with a top-to-bottom autumn scene of tall trees and golden foliage in a waterside setting. Signed and bearing the company’s Cross of Lorraine mark, it is estimated at $15,000-$20,000.

Morphy’s has made its mark in the Amphora market time and again with long-held collections of utmost quality. Within the grouping of Amphora pieces chosen for the June 18 session are two monumental circa-1900 vessels with a fantasy theme: a rare 18¼-inch Sea Dragon vase, $9,000-$12,000; and a 17½-inch Dragon vase with several identifications, including the Imperial Amphora mark. Estimate: $10,000-$15,000

The Wednesday, June 19 session opens with a gleaming selection of old American and European silver. A 197-piece assembled set of Tiffany “Olympian” pattern sterling flatware weighs approximately 313.5ozt and includes many serving pieces. The set will cross the auction block with a $30,000-$50,000 estimate. A large American silver punch bowl decorated with a fantasy scene of sea monsters surrounding a ship measures 22¼ inches in diameter and weighs 312.7ozt. The lot is accompanied by a 1944 issue of Life magazine that contains an article on the high-profile sale of the contents of Lynnewood Hall, the Philadelphia Gilded Age mansion of business tycoon Peter A.B. Widener. The punch bowl is illustrated in that article. Estimate: $30,000-$40,000.

The fine jewelry and watches category opens with two exceptional rings. An 18K white gold and diamond ring features a richly hued oval cabochon natural Burmese ruby that weighs 13.20 carats. Accompanied by an AGL Prestige Gemstone Report, it is estimated at $28,000-$32,000. The other ring is a Tiffany & Co. design, platinum with a 13-carat oval, cushion-cut Mandarin garnet; four oval-cut diamonds and six straight baguette-cut diamonds. With a total weight of 12.1 grams, it could command a high bid of $25,000-$30,000. An elegant 14K white gold, emerald and diamond necklace, gross weight: 36.3dwt, is estimated at $20,000-$40,000.

Mantel and long-case clocks will follow.

An extensive offering of American, European, Canadian and Asian fine art spans many genres. Jean Beraud’s (Russo-French, 1849-1935) oil-on-canvas painting The Deposition of Christ is signed and dated 1892. Measuring 44 by 57 inches (sight), it is presented in a substantial carved and gessoed giltwood period frame. Estimate: $40,000-$60,000.

The auction was held online and in Miller & Miller’s gallery at 59 Webster Street in New Hamburg, Ontario. It was actually a two-day, two-session affair.

The auction overall went incredibly well. It was a diverse offering covering a number of categories that can sometimes warrant their own dedicated sale.”

— Ben Lennox

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A stunning pair of Handel Birds of Paradise table lamps lit up the room for a combined $20,650, two rare clocks by the Canadian clockmaker Pequegnat together made $12,165, and an oil on canvas forest scene by Canadian artist Homer Watson rose to $8,625 at a sale of art, antiques and clocks held June 8th by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.

The auction was held online and in Miller & Miller’s gallery located at 59 Webster Street in New Hamburg, Ontario. It was actually a two-day, two-session affair, held June 7th-8th, featuring over 700 lots of collector-grade art, clocks, fountain pens, lamps, art glass and objects of historical interest from world-class makers. June 7th was dedicated solely to rare, collectible fountain pens.

The Saturday, June 8th session was led by a representative collection of clocks from the Arthur Pequegnat Clock Company, plus many other fine offerings. The top-selling Pequegnat was an extremely rare “Nelson” tall case clock, one of only a few known ($8,625). The clock, 81 inches in height, boasted a mahogany case, a beveled glass door and correct “twin dolphins” door key.

Another Pequegnat clock – this one a rare and vibrant “Black Grecian” shelf clock – featured fancy scroll work in the case surrounding the dial and on the base, and had the early “Pine Cone” bezel. The clock, which brought $3,540, had been partially restored, with the case painted black with faux marble painted columns and plinths. The feet and bases retained their original finishes.

The Handel “Birds of Paradise” table lamps were two star lots of the auction, fetching $10,620 and $10,030. Both featured domical shades in “chipped” and “sand finished” glass, and were decorated with two pairs each of exotic “birds of paradise,” one with blossoming peonies, the other blossoming branches. Both had striking colorful signed shades 17 ¾ inches in diameter.

The oil on canvas painting by Homer Ransford Watson (Canadian, 1855-1936), depicted a forest scene featuring a group of subjects gathered in a clearing. The 24 inch by 18 ½ inch work (sight) was housed in the original frame and was signed “Homer Watson” lower left edge. The painting exhibited some craquelure (fine cracks to the surface), typical of Watson’s “heavy” oil paintings.

“The auction overall went incredibly well,” said Ben Lennox of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “It was a diverse offering covering a number of categories that can sometimes warrant their own dedicated sale. We were fortunate to attract outstanding consignments Bidding was spirited on all fronts, with items being sold to the floor, on the phone and via the three online platforms.”

Lennox added, “The majority of Pequegnat clocks fell within estimate, while a few blew past their high estimates. Prices realized for fountain pens on Friday were quite strong. Strength in the market continues on the high and middle market. We’re elated to be able to continue bringing sought-after antiques and collectibles to market while pleasing our consignors and buyers alike.”

Following are additional highlights from the auction, which grossed just under CA$400,000. A total of 763 lots came up for bid, including 151 lots from the Friday evening fountain pen sale. Around 100 people attended the auction in person. Online bidding was via LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and the Miller & Miller website — www.millerandmillerauctions.com. All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.

A National Model 3 cash register, the wooden inlaid model coveted by collectors, in untouched original condition, as featured in the book The Incorruptible Cashier, realized $5,310. Also, a Baccarat close-packed millefiori paperweight, made in France and incorporating canes featuring various figures, to include a monkey, squirrel and birds, signed and dated (“B 1847”), hit $3,000.

— Travis Landry

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, June 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fine art coexisted in peaceful harmony alongside Asian objects at Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ antiques and fine art auction held on Thursday, June 6th, as a fine Chinese Qing Dynasty miniature bronze censer changed hands for $8,125 to take top lot honors, while paintings by Antonio Cirino, Giuseppe Castiglione and Jeremiah Wilson also performed well.

The auction featured 325 lots from estates across New England, online and in the Cranston gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue. The sale started at 12 noon, while a live-only pre-sale auction, featuring around 150 lots and with no internet bidding, started at 10 am. Online bidding was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Bidsquare.com, Invaluable.com and the Bruneau website.

“The auction performed well across the board,” said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer. “It was a thrill to see surprises like the censer and Jeremiah Wilson landscape.”

Kevin Bruneau, president and auctioneer of Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, added, “I knew from the beginning when I picked that censer out of the China cabinet in the client’s home it was special. For its diminutive size it was of a very fine quality.”

The Chinese Qing Dynasty miniature bronze censer was diminutive in the truest sense of the word, as the palm-sized object was less than two inches tall and about 2 ½ inches wide. It was exceptionally detailed throughout and featured a swelled and lobed body with intricate taotie lug handles on four small pad feet. The underside of the censer bore the six-character Qing mark.

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

An Impressionist oil on canvas winter landscape painting by Antonio Cirino (R.I./Italy, 1889-1983), depicting a meandering stream through a snow-capped forest, with a small walking bridge in the background, went to a determined bidder for $2,812. The signed work was accompanied by personal correspondence between Cirino and his family, Christmas cards and other ephemera.

A genre painting of a beautiful young lady by Giuseppe Castiglione (Italian, 1829-1908), titled Meditating the Reply, sold within estimate for $2,125. The work, signed “G Castiglione” lower right and displayed in a 24 inch by 20 inch frame, showed a young woman in lavish attire, seated at a table draped with an Oriental tapestry pondering her response with a quill and paper in hand.

An oil on canvas naturalist painting by Jeremiah Wilson (Calif./Pa./Canada, 1824-1899) showing a lakeside farm with windmills as a farmer tended to his cattle and sheep in the foreground under a pink-purple sky, and a castle in the distant background, rose to $2,375. The painting, housed in a 40 inch by 61 ½ inch frame, was signed and dated (“J. Wilson 1859”) lower left on the rockery.

A Chinese Hu oxblood sang de boeuf porcelain vase from the Qing Dynasty, cemented into a circa 1920 lamp base, overall 14 ¼ inches tall, changed hands for $2,000. The vase had a flared rim over a square swelled body on a rough foot, with a puddled celadon glaze to the underside of the foot. Sang de boeuf (French for oxblood) is a rich deep red glaze, created using copper oxide.

Other noteworthy lots included a vintage French Louis Vuitton original monogram style leather and wood hat box, made in the 20th century and monogrammed “P” on the sides ($2,250); and a complete set of 2016 factory-sealed Small Lie painted cast vinyl figures by the American artist and designer known as KAWS (b. 1974), published by Medicom Toy (Tokyo), 11 inches tall.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers Host Children’s Day at Downtown Clearwater's Osceola Courtyard

Children enjoying a sack race at the Children’s Day festivities by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers.

We bring families together to celebrate on days like today and we help when times get tough and families need answers to the difficult questions of raising children and running a family.”

— Glendy Goodsell, ED Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, June 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On June 8th, perfectly timed between afternoon thunderstorms, Osceola Courtyard in Clearwater was filled with over 300 local parents and children for El Dia del Nino – Children's Day. Families enjoyed hula hoops, water balloons, dancing, music, and all the fun that such a day brings. The event was organized by the Scientology Volunteer Ministers Florida chapter and included participation from non-profits: I Am the Group Foundation, Shihan School of Survival Martial Art, Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parent Association, Tabernacle of Divine Glory Ministries, and Grupo Folklorico Mahetzi who opened the event with traditional Mexican costumes and dances. Children’s Day was founded in Mexico and spread throughout Latin America to set aside a day promoting the importance of children and family values.

“We recognize that children truly are the future,” said Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Minister Center in downtown Clearwater. “We bring families together to celebrate on days like today and we help when times get tough and families need answers to the difficult questions of raising children and running a family.”

While kids had fun with the balloon artist, face painter, and arts and crafts, parents got educated on all the vital work that the participating non-profits do in our community. They also learned about the Scientology Handbook subjects such as: How to Resolve Conflicts, Marriage, Children and The Components of Understanding, all of which can be studied in free online courses at www.volunteerministers.org.

The highlight of the event occurred in the team games of the egg relay, three-legged and potato sack races, and the water balloon toss.

To find out more about the Scientology Volunteer Ministers, take a tour at 101 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater or call 727-467-6965.

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

The Scientology Volunteer Minister (VM) program was launched more than thirty years ago, in response to an appeal by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Noting a tremendous downturn in the level of ethics and morality in society, and a consequent increase in drugs and crime, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.” The program has adopted the slogan: “Something Can Be Done About It”. At the Scientology Volunteer Ministers center in downtown Clearwater, VMs are trained in the 19 chapters of the Scientology Handbook, basic first aid and safety techniques.
