Bonnet Top Secretary with Star Inlay, a pair of Napoleon III Gilt Decorated Side Chairs, a 19th C. Regency Mahogany Side Cabinet, and a paint-decorated Italian Commode with serpentine Front.

A selection of Gold and Silver Jewelry with stones such as vintage Georg Jensen , 14k Gold Rings with Diamonds and other stones, and Navaho and Zuni silver with turquoise including a squash blossom necklace will also be available.

Handmade Estate Carpets such as a Persian figural example, a 19th C Agra carpet, an oversized Kirman, several Tribal Carpets, and others being catalogued.

A highly decorative Richard Ginori tall pedestal is another highlight of this sale.

Of special interest is an early 19th Century map of the world after the voages of Cook, nicely present and framed.

Lighting highlights are a six-foot high Duffner & Kimberly Floor Lamp & Shade from a Yonkers estate, two Steuben Aurene Table Lamps, a signed Auguste Moreau Art Nouveau Bronze Lamp, a Signed Edgar Brandt lamp base, and more being unpacked as this is published.

We’ve just officially moved into the new building and have saved our best art and pieces for our Grand Opening Auctions,” said Ronan Clarke. “Between our Opening Reception Saturday Night, Our Eighth Fine Art Auction on Sunday, and Monday’s great Estate Auction, I know it’s going to be a tremendous three days.”

Clarke will be auctioning these estates Monday September 13th at 6:00 pm. Full onsite previews at its new 2372 Boston Post Road building will take place Friday 12 noon to 8:00 pm, Saturday, 12 noon to 9:00 pm, and Sunday, 12 noon to 2:00 pm.
