Continuing the Trend: September Decorative Interiors Highlightsshirley
Proudly putting forward another set of highlights as we approach the sale of the latest sumptuous selection of home décor and interior lots in the September Decorative Interiors Sale by Victor Mee Auctions taking place September 20th online at 2pm.
Having announced our latest offering of antique treasures going under the hammer in our Decorative Interiors Sale on September 20th, we are thrilled to, once again, bring you a small selection of some of our favourite pieces that contribute to the stunning catalogue of unique, rare and exceptionally beautiful furniture and interior details.
It’s not news that we delight in hosting our interior sales. They bring out a flair in the team, making us feel inspired and creative. We’re proud of each and every sale we host and each one nods to a different aspect of specialism for us. The interiors sales, though, are really fun to orchestrate. Nothing makes its way into the catalogue without passing the meticulous eyes of auctioneer, Victor and his talented son, Bryan who pride themselves on being a step ahead of the trends and, moreso, in knowing what our buyers want before they know it themselves.
Here’s a sneaky peeky of some of our favourite cherry-picked lots you can expect in this exciting event later this month…
LOT 92 – RARE PAIR OF EARLY 20TH C. CHESTERFIELD SOFAS
You’ll find Chesterfields appearing in most of our interiors sales. There’s good reason for that. They’re one of our most cherished interior pieces. They’re timeless, enduring, classic, sophisticated and they’re highly coveted by buyers. It would actually be remiss for us not to seek out the exceptional Chesterfield for inclusion in these sales. Lot 92 is going as a pair. Looming at 200cm, low seated, curved arms, deep tufted buttons, perfectly aged, it is quite the stunning pair they make. Estimate on these is €1500 -€2500.
LOT 84 – ELM FARMHOUSE TABLE
Another entry you will see time and time again at our sales is the quality table. This one is exceptional. Elm is one of the more rugged woods, hard-wearing and long lasting, hence why this antique table boasts still a smooth-as-silk scumbled top very little evidence of its life. Featuring drawers either side of the frieze, lot 84 gives homey vibes. It’s not a pretentious table. It’s a table to serve the Sunday roast upon and it goes to auction with an estimate of €600-€1200.
LOT 79 – MAHOGANY BUREAU CHEST OF DRAWERS
This military style bureau chest of drawers has a luster that isn’t oft seen in modern pieces of furniture. Crafted from mahogany, it features an array of drawers in various sizes, the most interesting being the pull-down writing slat in the centre with a leather skiver. This chest is more than just a place to keep your t-shirts. It’s elegant, attractive and functional and comes with an estimate of €350-€650.
LOT 227 – WALNUT WRITING BOX
Lot 227 is an Edwardian walnut and ebonized writing box and cuts a very striking figure. On brass mounts, it comes complete with two inkwells and semi-precious stones as well as its key. It is simply quite stunning whether to be used as a functional or a decorative piece. Estimate on this is a mere €150-€250.
LOT 97 – WALNUT DRAWING ROOM CHAIR
This 19th C carved walnut armchair is in impeccable condition. Its original proud blue upholstery is unblemished. It is also intricately detailed, as is the peripherals of the chair; the legs sculpted flawlessly and the tacked buttons line its edges uniformly. This is a statement piece. It is a exquisite statement piece. And goes under the hammer with an equally exquisite estimate of €150-€250. A must watch lot in this sale.
LOT 72 – 20TH C. WALL PLAQUE
We don’t often see items such as this appearing on the market. Lot 72 is a stunningly beautiful neo-classical plaster wall plaque. Angelic white, it depicts a Grecian scene; children, cherubs perhaps, playing amongst a floral background. It is arresting, but still delicate, nay romantic. Estimate on this piece is €120-€220.
LOT 78 – CHILD’S PENNY FARTHING BICYCLE
There’s little to depict that “old school cool” more than a piece like this. Lot 78 is a rare early 20th C child’s penny farthing bicycle. It is compact enough to fit into an interior space and brings with it an element of quirk and “vintage” that is so heavily sought after by contemporary buyers. Contributing to the specialness of this item, we think, is the wear evident on the little seat and the worn wooden handlebars. Little people have ridden this bicycle. One look at it or a hand run along the back wheel and the mind is cast backwards to a time long passed. It’s quite adorable, quite whimsical and quite a treasure. Estimate is €600-€1200.
LOT 502 & 503 – MID-CENTURY BANK OF WOODEN INDEX DRAWERS
Lots 502 and 503 are individual sets of wooden index drawers on raised legs. They feature original chrome handles and deceitfully deep drawers that stretch into the units, providing more than enough space to store whatever trinkets the lucky buyer might choose to use them for. Not being sold as a pair, there’s two chances to get your hands on these lots which will be, we predict, one of the most sought after pieces appearing in this sale. The estimate on each lot here is €300-€600.
LOT 210 – ART DECO TANNED LEATHER CLUB CHAIRS
The art deco style promoted the sophisticated clean and flexible lines that are so evident in lot 210, this pair of exceptional quality tanned leather club chairs. They are a very handsome pair with a shell top shape, elegant black trim and tacked button back. Supple, worn to the perfect degree of fading and comfort, the go forward for sale with an estimate of €600-€1200.
