  • Auction of English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 10am
  • Special Section of the October 30 Auction of Old Master Paintings, Russian Works of Art and English & Continental Furniture, Silver & Decorative Arts

NEW YORK, NY -- Doyle's auction on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 at 10am will present a broad selection of elegant English and Continental furniture and decorative arts, including Georgian silver, porcelain, mirrors, clocks, chandeliers, tapestries and rugs. The selection of Old Master paintings and drawings will offer landscapes, still lifes, portraits and religious subjects by European artists from the Renaissance to the 19th century.

Paul Sormani (1817-1877) was born and trained as a cabinetmaker in Venice, then moved to Paris where he specialized in furniture in the Louis XV and Louis XVI styles and was commissioned by Empress Eugénie to create furniture for the imperial palaces. Following Sormani’s death in 1877, his widow, Ursule-Marie-Philippine Bouvaist, and his son, Paul-Charles, continued to produce furniture. The lockplate of this elegant secrétaire is marked with their stamp, Vve. P SORMANI & FILS. (est. $10,000-20,000).

A George III sterling silver covered soup tureen by Thomas Robins, London, 1810, is a classic example of the robust designs associated with Regency silver that reflected the prosperity of 19th century England (est. $7,000-10,000).

Old Master Paintings / Russian Works of Art

Also featured in the October 30 sale are sections devoted to Old Master Paintings (More) and Russian Works of Art (More).
