In the fine furniture category, an 18th century North Italian walnut cassone, ornately carved overall in foliate and floral designs and peppered with putti, is estimated to realize $2,000 to $3,000; a rosewood and ebony-inlaid late 19th century Renaissance Revival library table shares the same estimate.

A 19th century seated maiden Italian marble sculpture in a flowing, sheer sheath, signed “A. Fulli,” carries an estimate of $4,000 to $6,000. A second Italian marble work, this one by Vittorio Caradossi (1861-1909), is offered at $10,000 to $15,000, and portrays a classical maiden inquisitively inspecting two doves who have alighted nearby.

The cataloged session of this sale will begin at 3 p.m. March 12, with the uncataloged Discovery Session to follow. Both sessions will be held at the Pasadena Convention Center, 300 E. Green Street, Pasadena, Calif. Bidding is available in person, via phone or absentee, and online through LiveAuctioneers, AuctionZip, Invaluable, and ArtFact.com.
