Important Winter Estates Auction, Jan. 21-22
Crescent City Auction Gallery will ring in the New Year with an Important Winter Estates Auction, scheduled for the weekend of January 21st and 22nd, online and in the gallery at 1330 Saint Charles Avenue in New Orleans. Start times are 11 am Central time on Day 1 and 10 am on Day 2. More than 800 lots will come up for bid over the two days. Featured will be numerous local and regional estates, including property from the estate of Lisa Montgomery of New Orleans and property from the collection of Ronald Ralpheal Levert, the proprietor of Godeau’s Antiques in Baton Rouge. Items will range from fine jewelry (including diamonds and pearls) to vintage couture (Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Prada, Celine, Gucci, others). But the sale will also be top-heavy with the quality merchandise people have come to expect from Crescent City Auction Gallery: fine French and American period furniture, original works of art by noted local and regional artists, wonderful decorative accessories (many of them from France and elsewhere across Europe), clocks, candelabra, a nice selection of bronzes and more. Exhibition previews will be held daily (except on Saturday and Sunday), by appointment only, in the Crescent City gallery, starting on Wednesday, January 12th. An evening preview will be held Tuesday, January 18th, from 5 pm - 6:30 pm Central time. To schedule a preview appointment, call 504-529-5057 or send an email to email@example.com.
