If you’re into 20th century design …

then you’ll probably want to check out Heritage Auction Gallery’s June 4 auction offerings at www.HA.com/5021, where the press release boasts ” a wide selection of
American Modernism, with work by names like George
Nakashima, Harry
Bertoia, KEM
Weber, Gilbert
Rohde and Donald
Deskey as well as examples of American Arts & Crafts up through
Contemporary design.”

They’ve got a load of Tiffany lamps, too.

Though the items offered in the catalog are beyond my budget, I enjoy and benefit from reading through the detailed descriptions and perusing the high resolution images on their Web site … I glean knowledge wherever I can, and Heritage’s site is one of many that I can wile away my time soaking up valuable information in the process.
