Woodbury, CT – On Sunday, February 10th, Thomas Schwenke’s Woodbury Auction held its’ Mid-Century, Country & Decorative Arts Auction. Despite the Blizzard of 2013 which dropped thirty inches of snow the day before, a large crowd was present for the sale, and internet sales were brisk with many bidders choosing to bid from home. According to Schwenke, over 53% of the sold lots went to online bidders. Schwenke said “. . . we were tempted to postpone the sale due to the pending storm, but Thursday we placed a bet that the storm would end Saturday morning and that by Sunday at sale time most people would be moving around, and it turned out to be a winning wager.”

Furniture and American country items were strong performers in the sale. A very fine Georgian mahogany oval gate leg wake table saw active competition and finally hammered to a determined bidder in the room for $3,840, while an interesting set of six French Art Nouveau chairs fetched $1,560 to a phone bidder. In the Mid-Century Modern category, a set of six Herman Miller dining chairs sold for $1,845 to the internet; a Baker 1950’s breakfront went to the internet for $1,965, a phone bidder won a Gilbert Rohde game table for $660, and a Herman Miller Rosewood Credenza had numerous phone and internet bids and eventually sold in the room for $1,440.

An oil on canvas of the Isle of Capri by Guido Odierna sold to an absentee bidder for $1,440, and a Rubino abstract bronze sculpture hammered at $819 to a very pleased bidder in the room. Two small abstract oils on canvas by Charles Green Shaw went to an in house bidder for $643 and $585, respectively.

A collection of Oriental rugs saw heated bidding from the room, phone and internet. Top rug lots were a large 19th century palace size rug which went to a phone bidder for $2,400, and another large room size Persian rug from a Greenwich estate which was sold to the internet for $3,567.

Schwenke’s next sale is an Americana, Folk Art & Decorative Arts Auction on Sunday, April 14th featuring a collection of folk art and Americana from a New York estate, property from The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Atlanta, and a select group of period furniture removed from 1100 Park Avenue in New York City. Additional consignments for this sale are being accepted through March 6. Phone inquiries should be directed to 203-266-0323 and further information is available on the internet at the firm’s website www.woodburyauction.com.
