Part one of our 5th Annual Holiday Auction focuses on the festive table and entertaining with fine china, silver and crystal. Pieces date to the 18th through 21st centuries, lavish antiques to sleek midcentury modern with examples from around the world. Also offered to set the holiday scene, art both fine and decorative, antiques and other home decor.

Two collections of note are represented in this sale. We continue with more Chinese export porcelain from Phil Siebert’s amazing collection as well as his fine British, European, Asian and American table wares.

From Kenneth Beachler we present a wonderful group of antique glass tumblers with early American and European examples. We also begin to offer pieces from his stellar lifelong fine art collection.
More from both of these talented collectors will be offered in future auctions this season.

Highlighting the area of fine art in this sale are two signed lithographs by Thomas Hart Benton dating to the 1940s. There are also pieces from Joichi Hoshi, Jan Miller, Leonard Woodruff, Henry Holden Lauzon and several Dutch painters including Berend Jan Brouwer, W.C. Nakken and Wim van Norden.

As for antiques and home decor, look for primitive furniture, folk art, studio art pottery and glass, Southwestern and Navajo silver with turquoise, textiles, lighting, clocks and kitchen ware.

Some of the makers you will find include Lalique, Tiffany & Co., Baccarat, Waterford, Carlo Moretti, Dominick Labino, Wedgwood, Ginori, Rosenthal, Pillivuyt, Weiningen, Le Chamberlain Limoges, Russel Wright, Eva Zeisel, Dansk, Heath, Beaumont, Buccelati, D’Argenta, Reed & Barton, Tane, Lunt, Casetti, K. Uyeda, Dan Dodson, Chimney Butte, Mauveil, Aladdin and more.

This is not a timed auction. It will operate just like a normal live auction. All bids are submitted to the auctioneer online. We will have an audio feed of the live auctioneer where the auctioneer will control the pace of the auction and when the lots will be declared SOLD! We will open the first lot at 10am and accept bids from multiple online platforms and absentee bids. We will give fair warning when bidding slows on that item and then the auctioneer will declare that lot SOLD! and open the next lot for bidding. You can bid in advance or wait until the lot opens and bid in real time. It is safer to enter your max bad in advance so that you don’t miss your lot when you forget the auction or don’t bid quick enough and we close the lot. The auctioneer will control the pace of the auction. There is no countdown timer and no time extensions. Once the auctioneer says SOLD we will move to the next lot in the auction.
