Estate auction featuring fine, decorative art offerings scheduled for Nov. 27

OCEANSIDE, N.Y. – An important multi-estate auction is scheduled for Nov. 27, starting at 1 p.m. by Philip Weiss Auctions. Featured lots will include a monumental Francois Linke 4-door dore bronze mounted cabinet with ram’s head and lyres, and a large-size original oil painting attributed to Girlando Marsiglia (N.Y., 1792-1850).

“Girlando Marsiglia was one of the 15 founders of the National Academy and a renowned Hudson River School painter,” Mr. Weiss pointed out. “The work we are selling comes with an actual daguerreotype of Marsiglia – an astounding fact by itself – plus a sterling silver box that was brought to America by him in 1828 and later engraved in 1885. I can’t overemphasize the importance of this lot.”

The sale will also feature a galaxy of fine decorative accessories, to include a mirror plateau with French ormolu mounts by G. Bointaburet (Paris, circa 1880); a pair of F. Barbedienne bronze plaques; a 19th century gilt bronze plaque with dancing putti; porcelains; an Argy-Russeau powder box; a collection of Mettlach and Satsuma; Sevres pieces; and 19th century Oriental porcelains.

Other decorative accessories will include hand-painted plates; a gilt and signed bronze and enamel box; pottery and art glass; hand-painted and enameled vases; a monumental gilt bronze center piece; many French porcelains; Oriental rugs; and a monumental gilt French Trimue mirror with top center painting. Also sold will be clocks and a collection of vintage phonographs and cylinder players.
