More than 350 items selected from some of the finest collections in Florida are to be sold by Matheson’s Auctions next month, and there are expected to be some surprises.
Included in the auction will be part of the art collection belonging to the Cuban ambassador to Canada, as well as glass items and objects from a £9 million mansion in Miami.
Matheson’s Auctions has been buying and selling antiques and art for more than 40 years and promises some of the finest pieces for the auction. The sale will include bronzes, jewellery, period furniture and sterling silver.
One item that is expected to attract a lot of attention is a grandfather clock made by Walter M. Durfee in 1890, estimated to be worth around £6,200 to £9,300. The fine art collections are expected to raise the highest prices, with a Julio Romero de Torres oil painting and a piece by Emilio Sanchez Perrier. An antique cabinet by R. J. Horner is believed to be one of the most impressive pieces of furniture, standing six feet and four inches tall. Similarly, an old violin will attract interest from collectors of musical instruments, as it was made by Ernest Heinrich Roth.
While auctions do tend to attract widespread attention, individuals will pay more for items as a buyer’s premium is typically included in the sale price. To discover fine items such as works of art and antique cabinets, visit Lancashire in the UK for a selection of pieces.
