NEW YORK, NY.- Sotheby’s presents Decorative Arts Week in New York this April, consisting of five auctions encompassing a wide array of treasures: everything from 19th Century furniture, to Regency Silver, to Oushak Carpets and European Decorative Arts from the famed Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. The week of events offers an unrivaled opportunity for collectors and designers alike to shop for unique pieces for the home, and will culminate with the exciting third annual installment of Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse. All presale exhibitions will be open to the public in Sotheby’s New York galleries beginning on 9 April.

European Decorative Arts from Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts 12 April 2016
This exciting auction includes a selection of European furniture, objects and textiles from the Gothic period to the 19th century, including an important Oushak "Small Pattern Holbein" Carpet from the 16th century (estimate $600/800,000), a mid-18th century German Rococo polychrome-decorated and parcel-gilt commode from Dresden or Potsdam (estimate $70/100,000), and fine Venetian furniture from the Rosens' personal collection, which furnished both the Rosen House and their New York townhouse at 34 West 54th Street. These pieces are now being sold to provide funding to care for the Rosen House and the many treasures found there, including intact rooms from European villas and palaces, some of which are decorated with 18th century hand-painted Chinese wallpaper. The house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, will still be furnished with notable antiques collected by the Rosens on their extensive European travels and will continue to welcome thousands of visitors each year.

Collections: European Decorative Arts 13-14 April 2016
The Collections: European Decorative Arts sale encompasses a large and varied selection of furniture and decorative art. The opening session on 13 April will be exclusively dedicated to the renowned Manhattan-based dealer, H.M. Luther, who has held a place of prominence in the art and antique market since 1947. A highlight of the group is A German Rococo Carved Giltwood Console Table circa 1735 (est. $30/50,000). The core aesthetic of H.M. Luther has always been characterized by Neoclassicism subtly punctuated by the inclusion of objects of various styles and geographies, and this style will be showcased through the curated selection of pieces to be offered. Following this special session, the auction on 14 April is highlighted by a fine collection of 19th century furniture and decorative arts from a private Beverly Hills collection. The sale will also feature other select groups of private property of European, English and 19th century furniture.

Collections: Silver, Vertu, Ceramics, and Russian Works of Art 15 April 2016
Sotheby’s will offer a superb selection of American, European and English silver and vertu, ceramics, and Russian works of art, with an emphasis on private collections, including several single-owner sequences. Silver and vertu highlights include an important pair of Regency candelabra by Paul Storr, a set of twelve plates from the Orloff service of Catherine the Great, and a rare Irish Celtic revival yacht trophy (estimate $20/30,000). The sale will also feature a fine selection of 18th-and 19th-century European ceramics including Chelsea ‘Hans Sloane’ plates, a pair of Meissen Kakiemon candlesticks from the Japanese Palace as well as a collection of large KPM and Sevres-style vases. The fine selection of pre-revolutionary Russian Works of Art includes ceramics, enamels, icons, and Fabergé. The highlight is a single-owner sequence of forty-two lots of cigarette cases, including those by Fabergé, Khlebnikov and Mikhail Perkhin.

Designer Showhouse Exhibition 9-16 April, Auction 17 April
This April, Sotheby’s will present At Home, their third annual Designer Showhouse & Auction in New York as part of Decorative Arts Week. Twelve interior designers and design firms from the tristate area and the West Coast will each create one room of a home constructed within the fifth-floor exhibition space of Sotheby’s Manhattan headquarters. Selecting works from an array of Sotheby’s departments, including 20th Century Design, English & Continental Furniture, Ceramics, Fine Arts, Prints, Silver, and Photographs, the designers will juxtapose the contemporary and the traditional to create diverse out-of-the-box spaces that embody the essence of modern-day luxury living. The Showhouse will be open to the public 9 – 16 April, along with Sotheby’s Decorative Arts Week exhibitions, culminating in a dedicated auction on 17 April 2016.

Saturday At Sotheby's: Wanderlust Online bidding open 4-16 April
Saturday at Sotheby’s: Wanderlust is a timed onlineonly auction of furniture and decorative arts dedicated to the life and spirit of the traveler. Organized by country – and from destinations as farreaching as China, Russia and Finland – the pieces offered in this auction are both mementos of past adventures and portable objects crafted for a nomadic lifestyle. Silver highlights include an early George III small-scale epergne with its original leather travelling case and a 19th century English snuff box mounted with a micromosaic of the Colosseum – a souvenir that would have been acquired while on the Italian Grand Tour. A sedan chair, a campaign chest of drawers for wartime camps and Orientalist 19th century sculptures will also be offered.
