Hindman hosts Atlanta Collections Auction
A Fine Louis XV Style Gilt-Bronze-Mounted Tulipwood Salon Table, Circa 1900. Height 33 x length 85 x depth 36 inches. Estimate: $15,000.00 - $20,000.00.

ATLANTA, GA.- Hindman announced the auction of fine art, photographs, books and manuscripts, Asian, American and European furniture and decorative arts and silver from prominent estates and collectors, including the Estate of Charles S. Ackerman. The auction, featuring almost 600 lots, will take place on Thursday, September 19 at 10AM (ET) at the Hindman galleries located at 668 Miami Circle NE, Atlanta.

In addition to reaffirming its visible presence in the vital Atlanta arts community, Hindman is particularly pleased to have been chosen to offer property from the Estate of Charles S. Ackerman at auction. Charles S. Ackerman, the founder and chairman of the storied Atlanta commercial real estate firm Ackerman & Co, has long been recognized as one of the visionaries of Buckhead's modern skyline. A graduate of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, as well as the Emory University School of Law and Georgia State University's anthropology school, Ackerman was intimately involved with civic and cultural institutions. His affiliations included serving on the board of directors of the Buckhead Community Improvement District and the national board of governors for the American Jewish Committee. He was also the founder of the Real Estate Apprenticeship Program for African Americans and chairman of the board at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University.

Highlights from the diverse collection include a painting by Francois Brunery (Italian/French, 1849-1926) entitled The Latest Gossip (estimated at $8,000-12,000), an etching and aquatint by Jasper Johns (American, b. 1930) titled 0-9, 1975 (estimated at $7,000-9,000), a first edition of Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind, (estimated at $1,500-2,000), and a selection of Tibetan Thangkas dating from the 18th through the 20th centuries (estimated at $500-$2,000).

From the Estate of Deanna Vondrak will be several American Renaissance and Aesthetic pieces of furniture, attributed to such makers as Herter Brothers, George Schastey & Co. and Pottier & Stymus. Vondrak was a well-known authority on American 19th century furniture and decorative arts, and for many decades placed exemplary pieces in well-known museum and private collections.

The auction continues with impressive offerings of European furniture and decorative arts from collections, estates and various owners, highlighted by a fine Louis XV gilt-bronze-mounted kingwood and tulipwood salon table (estimated at $15,000-20,000), a William IV Irish silver tea and coffee service (estimated at $2,500-3,500) and a selection of Chelsea and Derby 18th century porcelain figures from a Southern Collection.
