shaft atop which sits an urn-shaped pedestal adorned with regal cartouches and carved floral swags. Two figures with drape cloths, a male and a female, stand atop the pedestals. The torcheres were made in 1889 and stand 11 feet high.
Yet another lot sure to get paddles wagging is a pair of flamboyant Gothic throne chairs fit for a king and queen in black walnut. The stylized twist columns support the seats, which are separated by pierce-carved arm rests formed from integrated winged lions. The seats, 11 feet high, were formerly in a castle in Bavaria. They later graced a mansion in the U.S. that overlooked Chesapeake Bay, Maryland.
A fun piece fit for commercial or home use is a completely restored country store, with a front and back bar in oak that would be perfect for a restaurant or even a country kitchen. The back bar has glassed storage bins, cabinetry and a clock mounted in the fascia.
A great piece of Americana, also from the Yellowstone Club, is an original grape wine front and back bar with stained glass canopy, handsome and expansive at 12 feet high by 18.5 feet wide. Other lots to be sold from Yellowstone include a complete cased knife display, comprising four sections, which are virtually untouched; a pair of gorgeous companion rococo consoles in gilt wood with cabriole legs and a heavily carved tri-glass-door bookcase featuring figural depictions of Atlas and lions, which stands 7 feet tall by 7 feet wide by 25 inches deep.
In addition to the Yellowstone items, Red Baronís has gorgeous jewelry, such as a 35ct emerald pendent on a 14kt yellow gold fishbone chain; two restored and working carousels; a fabulous inlaid Monarch pool table with original iron lion legs; and many fine examples of classic commercial pieces, such as a carved walnut jewelry store with paw feet (to include a back case with glass shelving, two curved cases, two long cases and three short cases); a fine mahogany American pharmacy from Knight Soda Fountain Co., Chicago; and a splendid soda bar with intricately carved crown, foliate detail and pierced woven pattern.
There are several classic vehicles sure to pique any car enthusiast's curiosity, as well as futuristic, one-of-a-kind automobiles like the 1959 Tornado, with its sleek body that illustrates Americaís fascination with futuristic rocket-inspired, mid-century design.
