We are thrilled to bring the Estate of Emily Coxe Winburn to auction for our clients local and far. Mrs. Winburn (known as “Emmy” to her friends) was a fixture of the Savannah social scene: investing her time at various points with the American Red Cross, the Junior League of Savannah, the Chatham Club, the Married Women’s card club, the Colonial Dames, the Trustees Garden Club and the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. As you will see she was a serious patron of the arts and avid collector of orchids and bonsai.

This auction reflects a lifetime of travel, an admiration of art and certainly a fondness for dogs-particularly whippets. Period furniture, fine art, sterling silver, porcelain, Asian art, garden items and carpets punctuate this personal collection. Amongst notable lots are two works by Marion Vinot, an American/French artist that Mrs. Winburn admired and supported, a study of Diego Velazquez’ ‘Las Meninas’ attributed to Frederick W. MacMonnies, a set of 12 Gorham sterling silver chargers, prints by Mark Catesby, a lovely 19th century linen press, a room sized Oushak carpet and a print of a laughing woman by Rufino Tamayo. 

Bidders will also have a special opportunity to take home one of several bonsai offered in this auction- each one a perfect reflection of a woman who had a penchant for everything beautiful and carefully crafted. We hope that you enjoy the sale!
