The eclectic auction featured a selection of over 500 lots of market fresh furnishings, decorations and accessories, including fine art, antiques, modern design, Asian works of art, estate jewelry, fine silver and Greek, Etruscan and Roman antiquities, all pulled from local collections and estates.

Bidders found it a fun and sustainable way to shop for fine furnishings and accessories.

“We continue to welcome regular clients as well as brand new buyers for each auction,” said company President Andrew Jones.

“Collectors, decorators, young families and influencers are enjoying the fun of auction and buying pieces they love.”

The La Cornue range was the sale’s top lot, while another home décor item – an elegant copper double slipper bathtub – hit $3,750. All prices quoted include a sliding scale buyer’s premium.

Asian works of art, including jades and hardstones, ceramics and metal wares from a private collection, performed well. Most notably, a group of Chinese blue and white porcelain fetched $13,750. Antiquities also generated global interest, particularly a Greek red figure askos from the 4th century BCE that sold for $3,250.

A vintage Garton ‘Kidillac’ pink open-top pedal car accelerated to $1,125, while one of the more whimsical (and affordable) lots of the day – a suite of sunflower form garden furniture – went to a happy bidder for $312.

The DTLA (Downtown Los Angeles) Collections & Estates Auction offered something for every taste and pocketbook.
