Our March 2019 Auction, with live online bidding and lots closing tomorrow, includes some spectacular antique and vintage drink ware and accessories. Even if you don’t partake in hard beverages, these one-of-a-kind finds are of extremely high quality, beauty and style. If you haven’t outfitted a spot in your home yet, here is your chance!
First start with the bar itself. Perfect for the task is this English Mahogany Butler’s Tray on Stand, (Lot 541, estimate $200-400).
The butler’s tray form was developed in Britain in the 1700’s; the name is self explanatory. Made to be portable and flexible for the butler to serve from, today it is a handsome addition in warm mahogany to the modern house. Our tray dates to 1800.
Designed to create an impressive display, next consider these incredible decanters from the early 20th century. (Lot 280, estimate $100-200).
Decanters come in many styles and sizes. These are of multi-faceted form and have incredible light reflecting properties. Likely from the early 20th century, they have an Art Deco or International Style feel. They also feel great in the hand.
To add some color and sparkling beefy substance, examine this Cranberry glass decanter (Lot 281 estimate $100-200). Large in scale and heavy in weight, this finely cut piece will enhance your bar set up by just being there, and make pouring that cocktail for a friend extra fun.
Next add this very large set of Wheel Carved Crystal Glasses, (Lot 274, estimate $500-800, with a starting bid of $50!), they will surely inspire mixology experimentation, and are finely carved with various botanical species for your inspection.
Above it all, why don’t you choose this elegant Henri Matisse linocut print to hang over the whole arrangement? It can be a gorgeous signal that it’s time for fun! (Lot 100, estimate $800-1200).
Auction begins tomorrow at 12 noon, hope to see you online, even better if you grab a cocktail…..bottoms up!……..
