Owner Ronan Clarke commented on this sale: “While it would be hard to top the results of last month’s Cropsey auction, I believe that our June catalog is actually stronger end-to-end with the Wiggins and Berthelsen oils, the large 19th C. bronze putti, the Martino Gamber “Rita” chairs, the American Empire and period French antiques as well as the Judaic art.”

Onsite Previews will be held Saturday-Sunday, June 11-12, 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm and Monday, day-of auction, 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm. Clarke’s full catalogue can be viewed at
