Amazing Deals on 20th Century Decorative Arts

By , February 22, 2011

At Bonhams, our local favorite auction house, a good sale is coming up next week for 20th century pieces.

Click here for the auction & details.

Here is a taste for you:

Here is a pair of Art Deco style walnut pedestals,  executed in a classical fluted column shape of book-matched walnut.   The highly polished finish would freshen up your foyer, wouldn’t it?  The hammer price is listed at $500-$700.  The pair looks great in the catalog.  Please remember to go to the preview days to see a piece you are considering buying at auction to check the condition.  But even if they need a bit of work, they qualify as a terrific Design Value.

Since green is the fashion color of the year, check out this beautiful Russian style malachite box, formed to look like a book.  Put this on your coffee table in your all-beige room,  and your  room will become instantly chic!  This is listed with a hammer price of  $800-1000, so go for it!

If you haven’t purchased at auction before, check out my previous post  (“Designers Secret Source for Great Values”) to get to know all the secret steps.

Here is a fun little piece for all the DIY people out there:

Isn’t this piece charming?  I can see it in a California bungalow with some new bright and lovely floral prints.  With a hammer price of only $300, you can believe it is going to need some repairs, but even so, what fun this piece could be!
