Lynbrook, NY, USA, July 18, 2023 — A complete portfolio of four screenprints in colors by Andy Warhol titled Skulls, three fabulous pieces by Philip and Kelvin Laverne (including an incredible wall plaque), and a Paul Revere sterling silver pepper pot are just a few of the more than 500 lots folks will be able to bid on in Weiss Auctions’ online-only estates auction scheduled for Tuesday, July 18th.
The auction, with a 10 am Eastern start time, will have bidding available on Weiss Auctions’ newly redesigned bidding platform (weissauctions.com), as well as the other online platforms.
The Warhol Skulls portfolio, from 1976, comprises the complete set four screenprints in colors on Strathmore Bristol paper, full sheets, each measuring 40 inches by 30 inches (sight, less frame) and each pencil signed by Warhol and pencil numbered (“26/50”). The portfolio, published by Andy Warhol Enterprises, Inc. (N.Y.) has an estimate of $125,000-$175,000.
The Philip and Kelvin Laverne pieces include a wall plaque with a wonderfully well-done image of a Chinese village, 17 inches tall by 60 inches long and signed lower center (est. $40,000-$60,000); an etched bronze coffee table in an unusual and rare geometric pattern (est. $8,000-$12,000); and an end table in an Oriental motif, 18 inches in diameter (est. $6,000-$8,000).
The Paul Revere sterling silver pepper pot, about 5 ½ inches tall and weighing 129 grams, is hallmarked at the bottom with four “PR” initials in block letters, along with the letters “F W E” (est. $20,000-$30,000). It was Revere’s habit to inscribe or engrave the family name of the purchaser at the bottom of his items; “F W E” is believed to be for William and Elizabeth Farrell.
