Summer estate auction slated for Sept. 10 by Great Gatsby's in Atlanta A fine estates auction featuring hundreds of fresh-to-the-market lots of furniture, plus fine and decorative arts, will be held Saturday, Sept. 10, by Great Gatsby’s Auction Gallery in Atlanta, Ga.
Folks in the hunt for a rug or tapestry will also feel fortunate. The auction will feature a nice grouping of finely woven, 100 percent silk Persian rugs, ranging from a palace-size Tabriz (magnificent at 13 feet by 20 feet) to something more modest (about 8 feet by 10 feet); as well as an early 18th century French verdure Aubusson tapestry (114 inches high by 164 inches wide).
Stained glass windows will also change hands, to include a 20th century American stained glass window crafted out of two- and three-layer art glass by Ken Phillips Studios (48 inches tall by 24 inches wide); and a 20th century American stained glass window titled Koi Pond, crafted of three- and four-layer art glass and artist signed Steven Steltz (44 inches high by 44 inches wide).
Rounding out just some of the day’s expected top lots will be an early 19th century British military officer’s campaign trunk with brass bound strapping; three 19th century needlepoint valances with a central petite point heraldic crest, mounted for hanging; a pair of late 19th century oversized English porcelain hand-painted vases (28 inches tall and 9 ½ inches diameter at the base); and a mid-19th century Continental iron shield with a well-detailed figural battle scene.
