POST AUCTION HIGHLIGHTS FROM APRIL 2, 2017 SALE
 
William Jenack’s sale of April 2, 2017 saw many lot far surpassing their high estimate. The main top seller were in fine art, Chinese porcelain and coins.
Art that sold well include a lot of (5) graphite sketches by Laurence Stephen Lowry sold for $1121.00, a Hungarian School graphite and watercolor signed Bela Kadar sold at $767.00, an oil on canvas by Oscar Ricciardi sold for $649, a Chinese School ink and wash on paper hammered down at $1180.00, a small oil on panel titled “Yuletide Anxiety” by Stevan Dohanos sold well above it presale estimate selling at $1534.00, a Chinese ancestor painting also surpassed its high estimate selling for $1062.00, another small oil on panel of a Hudson River Sloop by George Nemethy more than tripled its high estimate finally hammering down at $2242.00 to an internet bidder. But by far the most exciting bidding event was for a small oil on panel titled “Broadway Winter’78” by Isthak Jack Holtz with a presale estimate of $1000-$1500, the opening bid came in from the internet at $3100.00 then the action went to the audience, then to the phone and ultimately to a bidding war on the internet with two platforms going back and forth until one side gave in and it finally hammered down at $24,780.00!!
Chinese porcelain also performed much better than expected with many pieces far exceeding their high estimates. A small blue and white decorated vase bearing a Ch’ien Lung mark more than doubled its high estimate selling at $383.00, a pair of garlic form vases doubled their high estimate selling at $442.00, a Ming style vase tripled its high estimate hammering down at $590.00, a bottle form vase in the famille rose palate also bested its high estimate selling for $472.00, a pair of small covered jars with archaic script bested their high estimate closing at $236.00, a blue and white decorated stem cup far out did its high estimate at $649.00, a blue and white decorated brush pot also crushed its high estimate selling at $826.00 and a small yellow glazed bowl obliterated its high estimate of $150.00 hammering down at $826.00.

Other lots of note was a Wurlitzer Model 1015 juke box nearly doubled its high estimate, after a battle between an in house bidder and an internet bidder, finally sold to the internet for $5900.00, a pewter Art Nouveau bat form candelabra, Hugo Leven Design for Kayserzinn, doubled its high estimate selling for $2008 and a massive Lladro porcelain of St. Michael hammered it way to $4130.00.
