    The auction is July 14th, here in Midtown at 11am and on-line for the world, and perhaps most importantly, the champagne viewing reception is July 11th until 8pm. For anyone in New York that night, you are invited to stop by for champagne, snacks, tour of the gallery and event to network with other antiques pros, and potential clients for you, collectors, buyers, and dealers.
    Here is the catalog, and the fine furniture starts with lot #81.

    If you are coming by, message me please directly through here so I can make sure you receive the red carpet.
    Thank you,
    Charles

    Jivvy the research is my favorite

    Might be worth reevaluating lot #50 with the artist Jean-Pierre Serrier in mind.

    Auction house must have changed the numbering since your post because I think you mean lot #0019?
    Excellent advice!

    Thank you for the attention and expertise. What did you think of the English furniture? Those pieces are my favorite, the chest with a hidden drawer, the sideboard has hidden drawers too. I love that hidden compartment design.

    Thank you very much. I am being serious when I point out that our temp, who concluded their time with us today, as planned all along, wrote up this one. No excuse for the rest of the team, me guilty too, of not catching this.
    "tea pods."

    Darn spell check; you just can't trust it. It would be a good name for a tea infuser though. :)

    Wish us luck. The auction is tomorrow. A lot of dealers have registered; I am most encouraged by the collectors and art and antiques enthusiasts though. They are vital. I hope to very soon make a social media proclamation that "dark furniture is back!"

    Thank you. I love it too. The auction did well in fact. The early English furniture exceeded estimates, so the clients were very happy. The William and Mary chest had a bidding war between 2 dealers, someone on the floor, and someone else from Mass. And just as soon as I thought my attachment to early dark wood English furniture had concluded, someone contacted me yesterday about 3 pieces of very very early English furniture that looks like it could have come from a St. Mary Magdalene's style of English church.
