POST AUCTION HIGHLIGHTS FROM DECEMBER 3, 2017 SALE
 
William Jenack auction of December 3, 2017 saw artwork and jewelry as the top lots with many far exceeding their high estimates.
Jewelry that surpassed its high estimate included a 18K yellow gold and opal pendant, the opal exhibiting a nice depth of color and fire, hammered down at $442.00; a pair of 18K yellow gold, diamond, sapphire and ruby hinged hoop hearing sold at $1062.00; an Aesthetic Movement 10K bracelet achieved $265.00; several SevenFriday Industrial Series wristwatches sold above their high estimates at $650.00 and $767.00; a pair of Italian 18K white gold and diamond hinged hoop earrings sold nearly twice their high estimate at $1062.00 and a small cluster full cut diamond ring at $236.00.
Artwork was the winner at the auction with a sanguine chalk drawing of a cherub by Giovanni Battista Cipriani (1727-1783) sold at $1062.00; a 20th century Hungarian school oil on board did well at $1003.00; a lot of 2 Japanese photographs of Princess Teimei and Admiral Togo with signatures sold at $188.00; an oil on canvas of a vase of flowers by David Burliuk (Russian/American 1882-1967) sold nearly twice over estimate at $7670.00; a Continental School (20th century) oil on canvas of hunting dogs with an illegible signature sold nearly 3 times its high estimate to a telephone bidder at $1180.00; a watercolor landscape by Allen Tucker (American 1866-1939) sold twice over its high estimate at $1652.00; and a small oil on artist panel titled “Portrait of Dzieworgnia” by Vlastimil Hofman (Polish 1881-1979) closed at $944.00.
By far the largest amount of bidding in the art arena was generated by 3 Giorgio Morandi (Italian 1890-1964) etchings. The etchings came from a construction worker at the site of a total home remodel of a historic home. The new owners had instructed the workers to dispose of any property left in the house, among that was a portfolio of original artwork and prints spanning the 17th through 20th century of which the Morandi’s were included.
Morandi was known for his monochromatic tonal still life paintings which usually featured an arrangement on table with various bottles and vases. The etchings sold reflected his minimalist approach to his artwork with spare lines and shading. Fierce bidding included in-house participation, internet and phone with phone lines closed for each print. The first work sold known in Italian as “Natura Morta A Grandi Segni” (still life with bottles and vases) sold for $10350.00; next was “Paesaggio-Casa A Grizzana” (landscape with house) at $13570.00 and finally wildflowers at $5290.00, all sold to a single phone bidder.
Other lots of note included a patinated bronze bulldog selling at $826.00; a Lionel #442 illuminated diner at $188.88; a Joannes Georgius Huber violin at $383.00; a lot of 3 albums of Hollywood promotional studio photographs at $472.00 and a fine German violin bow signed E. Herrman (Edwin Otto) at $236.00.
