Fine & Decorative Arts, Militaria and Rock & Roll Memorabilia
On the heels of a single-owner sale, Nye and Company prepares 1,000 lot extravaganza for their June auction, the majority of which come from Tri-State area collections.
A New Jersey collector moving to lower Manhattan compiled an impressive collection of Rock ‘N’ Roll memorabilia, though primarily focused on paintings, prints, photographs and broadsides from Classic music era of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, there are also examples from the ‘80’s too. For local interest and devoted fans there is a fully autographed guitar by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band. Another guitar is autographed by Stephen Colbert and Peter Frampton. Numerous photographs by Ken Regan, Paul Saltzman and Jim Marshall documenting the likes of the Beatles, Bob Dylan and The Who, respectively.
The collection of militaria was acquired over the years from a gallery located on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. This group includes helmets, uniforms and swords primarily of 19th and 20th century English origin.
A Greenwich, Connecticut family sold their homestead. This collection includes an elaborate pair of Georg Jensen two-arm grape motif candelabrum, a Tiffany sterling silver hot water pitcher, and numerous other pieces silver. The family is also selling period furniture, of note is a set of Regency painted and caned dining chairs, a Federal secretary and other pieces. A large Royal Worcester porcelain partial dinner service is being sold in three lots and is very decorative.
There is just too much fine art even mention. English, American, Asian and Continental landscapes and portraits. There is also a pair of carved ivory elephant tusks found in a church closet and a handful of contemporary folk art nautical carvings.
