Next Tuesday, May 5th, Bonhams will be selling the final pieces of Herter Brothers furniture from the Warner Brothers Studios collection.
Staci Smith from Bonhams has provided me with the following summary which is followed by photographs of the pieces in the sale as well as the complete press release with detailed information.
Herter Brothers highlights in the upcoming sale include an American Renaissance carved, inlaid and polychromed maple mirrored cabinet (est. $30,000-50,000), three walnut and ivory-inlaid ebonized side chairs (est. $15,000-20,000), and a pair of American Renaissance carved walnut armchairs carved with large herons, male masques and festoons (est. $15,000-20,000).
Additionally, we will be offering pieces commissioned by Herter Brothers from other designers, supporting the long-held theory that Herter Brothers not only supplied furniture to Thurlow Lodge, but also served as interior designers.
The sale will take place at 580 Madison Avenue on May 5th at 10AM and 1PM EST
A full-screen, high-resolution slideshow of the furniture is available here. Press release is below.
