DALLAS, TX.- Heritage Auctions
' Tiffany, Lalique & Art Glass Auction Oct. 22 is expected to build on the momentum of its highly successful June event, and will serve as an ideal springboard to two online auctions the following day: Heritage's Automobilia, Transport History and Mechanical Models Online Auction and its Erté Art & Design Online Auction, both to be held Oct. 23.
The auction includes an important selection of more than 100 lots from the property from Valerio Antiques, the storied dealer in high-quality and visually stimulating Art Deco art and objects. After more than 40 years, Antonio Valerio is retiring and passing the business to Martell Gallery.
