Ira Koger, a successful real estate developer, and his wife Nancy had a love of art and music that translated seamlessly into a legacy of philanthropy. Mr. and Mrs. Koger were active members of many cultural boards and charities throughout the Southeast, particularly in Savannah and Jacksonville. They were both fond of 18th century furniture, Asian ceramics, and American Impressionism, as well as symphony musical performances. Their collection reflects a lifetime of study, care, and discerning taste. Although they are no longer with us, their daughter inherited part of their collection, which is what you see consigned here.
Highlights include a George III sterling silver oval tray probably by Robert Sharp, London, 1795 belonging to Sir Hugh Bateman in its original fitted box, a six volume set of Robert Lockhart Hobson’s “The George Eurmorfopoulos Collection”, an eleven volume set of Kodansha Ltd.’s “Oriental Ceramics, The world’s Greatest Collections”, Beatrice Whitney Van Ness’s oil on canvas “Young Woman with a Wide Brimmed Hat”, and objects of technological interest such as a vintage stock ticker, a large standing brass telescope and a sextant that formerly graced their daughter’s library overlooking the Atlantic ocean.
Enjoy the auction!
