GENESEO – Dozens of timeless pieces of art will be up for bid from Cottone Auctions on Court Street in September, including original artwork by Spanish-born master Pablo Picasso.
According to a press release from Cottone Auctions, the Fine Art and Antique Auction scheduled for September 25 and 26 will feature more than 700 premier lots including original artworks by Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, and Stephen Scott Young.
From Picasso is a rendering on a plate, titled Woman’s Face. It has two stamps on the underside, for “Madura Plein Feu” and “D’Apres Picasso,” and is expected to bring $10,000 to $15,000. Art pieces by Picasso continue to be in high demand, despite the fact that he produced in abundance.
There will also be rare shelf clocks by Mark Leavenworth and Asa Munger, clocks by Simon and Aaron Willard, Joseph Ives, and Elnathan Taber, collectible antique Asian objects, old lamps by Tiffany Studios and others, art glass, and period furniture.
Asian lots will include jade, porcelain, Satsuma, bronzes, cloisonné, jewelry, hardwood screens, furniture and more. Fine estate jewelry items will feature a stunning star sapphire and diamond ring totaling a staggering 10-plus carats, a Rolex watch, fine brooches and other pieces.
Cottone Auctions says that estate jewelry items are always a big hit with bidders, especially on the floor, where the items dazzle up-close.
Period furniture will include a fine and rare Philadelphia serpentine front sideboard, circa 1790, made from highly figured mahogany with intricate satinwood and bellflower inlay. The piece was purchased from the private collection of Peter Bissell Cooperstown (N.Y.) and was referenced in the book American Antique Furniture (Vol. 1, Edgar G. Miller, N.Y., Dover Publications, 1966, p. 538-540). It comes from the collection of Dr. Warren Hammerschlag (N.J.) and is expected to sell for $15,000 to $25,000.
Bidding will begin at 12 noon on Sept. 25 and at 11 a.m. on Sept. 26, Eastern time.
