Sotheby's upcoming sale is rife with treasures. Thick with treasures. I imagine they can hardly walk for all the treasures stuffed in showroom awaiting Sunday's Sale. Truly, pour yourself a hot cup of tea and enjoy page after page of amazing antiques. You can view the entire catalog of lots online here. You can thank me later ;-)
Erik Gronning, Senior Specialist and Head of the American Furniture Department at Sotheby's, was kind enough to spend a little time sharing the absolutely astounding history on several particularly special objects that will be featured in the upcoming auction. I've also picked out a few other lovely pieces that caught my eye.
