Atlanta, GA, USA, May 13, 2023 — A monumental Art Deco style bronze jardiniere sold for $26,620, a Cartier style 18kt yellow gold and diamond panther collar necklace finished at $20,520, and a brass plaque depicting a stylized face by Roy Lichtenstein realized $14,520 in Ahlers & Ogletree’s three-session April Estates & Collections auction held April 20th, 21st and 22nd in Atlanta, Ga.
The Art Deco style bronze jardiniere, 54 ½ inches tall, was after a vase by Pierre Lenoir (French 1879-1953) and Marcel Guillard (French 1896-1932), for Etling, Paris. It was sculpted as two semi-nude, draped maidens standing back-to-back, supporting an ovoid urn between them, resting on a rectangular base and having allover verdigris patination.
The heavy 18k yellow gold and diamond panther collar necklace, made in the manner of Cartier, contained about 364 round brilliant cut diamonds, weighing approximately 10.00 carats of SI-2 clarity and H-I-J average color. It had a bead prong set into the center of “walking jaguar” motif links with both high polish and matte finishes and a tension clasp.
The brass plaque by Roy Lichtenstein (American 1923-1997) was titled Modern Head Relief (1970) and had a copper plate en verso with an etched signature and edition number “70/100”. It measured 24 inches by 17 ¾ inches. Lichtenstein was a leading figure in the new art movement of the 1960s. His work defined the premise of pop art through parody.
