Attention shoppers, Doyle New York is having one of their “At Home” sales this Wednesday. While the sale has a huge range of lots, the best ones are by far the decorative accessories. Below are The Decophile’s picks:
This whimsical sketch for a set design by Cecil Beaton is sure to go way above the estimate considering the Museum of the City of New York recently had a very well received retrospective of the artist's portraits. "Set Design" by Cecil Beaton. Lot 5, estimate $2,000-$4,000.
Groups of framed botanical prints are a fool-proof way to fill up large walls. This set of studies would look great framed simply in thin white wood with little or no matting. Set of five Floral Studies from Phytanthoza Iconographic, 1736-48 after Johann Weinmann. Lot 67, estimate $300-$400.
- Such a chic little twig table! The scale of this table would work best with a loveseat as it is too petite to be used with a full sized sofa. Gilt-Bronze and Glass Low Table. Lot 86, estimate $250-$450.
Screens are a fabulous way to add architectural interest to a room (not to mention, a great place behind which to hide things). French Decoupage Three-Panel Screen. Lot 88, estimate $1,200-$1,800.
Breathtaking Breakfront! George III Mahogany Breakfront Bookcase, 19th century. Lot 158, estimate $1,000-$1,500.
Elevate your dining or living room with these beautiful glass frames! Keep in mind, they need new mirrors which will add a couple hundred dollars to the total cost. Pair of French Style Gilt-Wood Framed Mirrors. Lot 174, estimate $3,000-$5,000.
The perfect start to a collection of blue and white china! Delft Blue and White Five Piece Garniture; Together with a Delft Covered Jar. Lot 225, estimate $600-$900.
Use this set of mixed-and-matched glassware to create a bohemian and eclectic table setting. Set of Twelve Venetian Glass Goblets. Lots 285, estimate $1,000-$1,500.
Let there be light! The gilt starburst backplates of this pair of sconces are so dramatic. While these could be taken to an electrician to be electrified, I would leave them as is. Nothing is more romantic than a candle-lit dinner (just be careful not to burn your house down). Pair of Neoclassical Style Gilt-Brass Starburst-Form Candle Sconces. Lot 288, estimate $200-$400.
