Lambertville, NJ: Rago Auctions is holding a 1300+ lot Unreserved Auction over two days, Saturday, January 18 and Sunday, January 19, 2014 at 10 a.m. None of the lots have reserves, meaning that the high bid – no matter how low – wins the lot. On Saturday, look for 550 lots of Early 20th c. design decorative arts and furnishings, with pottery by Fulper, George Ohr and Rookwood, furnishings by Stickley and Limbert, Scandinavian furniture & fittings, glass by Tiffany and Galle, artwork by Chagall and Dali. 780 lots of 20th century modern will be sold on Sunday, including furnishings by Nakashima, Evans, Le Corbusier, Eames, contemporary pottery by Scheier, lighting by Stillnovo, artwork by Warhol, glass, rugs and more.
“Rago Unreserved is all about better stuff for less money,” says Michael Ingham, who runs the auction. “It’s for everyone who thinks they can’t afford to buy at auction and have never come into Rago. It’s fun. You can buy art and furniture that doesn’t come off a big retail assembly line. It’s better made than most anything from a chain store and it costs less. Come in early and browse around. If you don’t know how to bid at auction, we’ll be glad to show you the ropes.”
