  • Auction of English & Continental Furniture & Decorative Arts, Including Old Master Paintings & Drawings on October 25, 2017 in New York
  • Featuring Property from the Estate of Anne Marie Aberbach and the Collection of Anne Eisenhower

NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle held an auction of English and Continental Furniture and Decorative Arts, and Old Master Paintings and Drawings on October 25, 2017. The sale presented a broad selection of furniture and decorative arts, including Georgian silver, porcelain, mirrors, clocks, chandeliers, tapestries and rugs. Old Master paintings and drawings offer landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance to the 19th century.

Highlighting the sale was an impressive Neoclassical micro mosaic and specimen marble top centered by a scene of the Birds of Pliny, diameter 43 1/4. Intense competition drove the bidding far over its estimate of $12,000-18,000 to achieve $50,000.

A feature of the sale was property from the Estate of Anne Marie Aberbach. This exceptional collection comprised elegant French furniture and decorations assembled by Anne Marie Aberbach and her husband, music publisher Julian J. Aberbach, who worked with Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Edith Piaf. Highlighting the collection was a transitional Louis XV/Louis XVI commode à la grecque that reflects the very high quality work of the French cabinetmakers Simon Oeben, maître in 1769, and his brother, Jean-François, who was named ébéniste du roi in 1754.

The sale also offered property from the collection of acclaimed interior designer Anne Eisenhower. Her collection comprises stylish furniture and decorations ranging from a pair of impressive Regency style giltwood consoles supported by dolphins to a whimsical zebra-painted folding table designed by the legendary decorator Albert Hadley.

Paintings in the sale featured Travelers on a Road, Winter by Italian artist Stefano Bruzzi (1835-1911), which fetched $40,625, far over its estimate of $8,000-15,000. Property of a New York Museum, the work was a fine example of the artist’s much-admired landscapes with figures.

Old Master drawings sold strongly at the auction, with an Italian School 16th century depiction of the Lamentation over the Body of Christ soaring past its estimate of $1,000-2,000 to achieve $20,000.
