On Wednesday August 28th, Christies will hold an Interiors auction at Rockefeller Center in New York City. As we browsed through the catalogue we noticed some stand out pieces, which we imagine to have rich stories and histories. All the objects in the auction are one-of-a-kind, making them that much more unique to designers and collectors. Below we’ve selected a few of our favorites. (See the full auction here.)
An American silver gilt dressing table mirror, Marked for Dominick & Haff, 20th Century, monogrammed, marked ‘Sterling’
A pair of Chinese export metal-mounted white glazed jars and covers, late 19th/20th century
A pair of George III brass-mounted table-top terrestrial and celestial globes.
The terrestrial globe is inscribed ’A new correct…containing the latest discoveries by Tho…of Axminster 1768′
An early Victorian Ormolu and gilt-metal mounted ebonized hardwood inkstand, Second Quarter 19th Century
