Consigned from the family of Templeton Crocker’s butler is a group of fine Art Deco objects from Crocker’s iconic San Francisco Penthouse designed by Jean-Michel Frank and Jean Dunand, perhaps the most important Art Deco residence in The United States. Of particular interest are three pieces of lacquered metalware by Jean Dunand and a desk lamp by Maison Desny of Paris.
Twentieth Century objects to be sold include metalware by Jean Dunand and a lamp by Maison Desny of Paris. A Michael Powolny figure depicting Winter for The Wiener Werkstatte and a collection of forty-five French exhibition posters featuring Chagall, Picasso, Miro, Modigliani and Van Gogh should also do well. Two Art Deco bronze and ivory figures, a Tiffany Studios bronze floor lamp, two rare Rozenburg porcelain Art Nouveau vases and a Pablo Picasso 10” plate for Madura will also be sold.
