Auction Summary, June 27th

06-22-2022 Hits:31 Blog Theo De Haas

 

Hudson Valley Auctioneers, located at 432 Main Street, Beacon, New York will present a 500 lot unreserved antique and estate auction with absentee, phone  and online bidding through Liveauctioneers.com on Monday June 27th at an early start of 3:00 PM EST. 

The sale begins with a fine collection of Chinese bronzes, pairs of porcelain vases, carved jades, Kesi badges, watercolors, porcelain painted tiles, an 8 panel porcelain candle screen and other artifacts.  A selection of furniture throughout the sale ranges from a nice selection country to several standout Mid Century examples and Victorian rosewood and marble top tables. Two midtown NYC estate cleanouts offered up quite an extensive collection led by a Philadelphia 18th century Windsor armchair, a good Virginia pierced tin pie safe in blue, lots of decorated stoneware, an early painted barber pole, whirligigs, early iron and tools, architectural fan elements, vanes, decoys, textiles and other American provincial home objects. A Garrison collector contributed an excellent group of 19th century frames. mirrors, woodenware, gilt bronze and Empire, Federal and Restoration furniture 

From a Somers estate a collection of early firematic helmets, lanterns, badges, bells, a Mills 5 cent slot, a Gottlieb ``Fun Park" pinball, a large Old Dutch Cleaner enamel sign, lots of cast iron garden items and a steel medical cabinet should garner man cave interest. A fascinating story if true regards an English traveling medical cabinet from an old Hasting on Hudson estate purportedly owned by Dr. Samuel Mudd. Old labeled Baltimore bottles lead a bit of credence but aside from urban legend there is no proof. 

Lighting and clock enthusiasts will be happy with the large selection of 19th and 20th century timepieces and selection lamps and chandeliers, mostly Art Deco, Mid Century and 19th century bronze examples.  Mid Century pieces include a remarkable set of six bent wood Charles Eames dining chairs with rare Evans Products labels, a Borge Mogensen secretary desk, a Ritva Puotila Finish 1972 rug, three Mies van der Rohe chairs with Danish labels, two Joe Colombo office carts, Erik Hogland glass, Herbert Krenchel bowls, a WMF punchbowl, Woodard mesh chairs and works by Lalique, Icart, Hagenauer, Curtis Jere and Julia Glickens.

A nice group of sterling silver flatware and hollowware,  American silver coins, a small but select collection of estate jewelry, silver and bronze Judaica from an old Polish family as well as Tiffany, Christophle and a large tea service will be featured mid sale. 

Several china services and various fine porcelains and glass include services of hand painted Limoge, Masons, Noritake as well as Waterford, Baccarat and other standards.

Other items of interest include a large selection of Persian rugs including several room size and a collection of Native American Crystal style weavings.  The day's art selections include works by Leon Job Vernet, Michel Jacobs, Bill Schmidt, Erte, Armando Martinez, Rosetta Bohnert, Crawford Young, Henry Hitchings, Edward H. Pohl, J. Arnold, Manuel Chong Neto, Jan Zack, Yvonne Cheffer-Delouise, and several by Dianna Altman among the many.

In house previews are Sunday 6/26 from 1pm-5pm and Monday from 12 noon- 2:30pm or by appointment.  Absentee and phone bidding is available.

Some Notes on Bidding through Live Auctioneers

Why was I not approved as a bidder after I signed up?

Bidders with little or no bidding history will not automatically be approved, so if you are new on this platform please call us to confirm contact information & agreement of all posted terms of sale.

Bidders with little or no purchase history might be approved, but will only be approved with a bid limit reflecting their past purchase pattern, so if your past purchase shows as follows:

We will approve you without any issue.

Think of it as buying a car without any credit history, please do not expect to be approved without a limit without any purchase or buying history.

That said, if you feel you need a higher limit, call us and submit credit card information. Once we receive the credit card details (sometimes we also request a copy of your driver's license), we can increase, or remove the limit.

Which takes us to another subject of confusion:

Why do I have to submit my Credit Card if I already submitted it to Live Auctioneers?

You may have submitted your credit card details to Live Auctioneers, however we have no access to that information because we are not signed up with their direct payment system.

There are various reasons for that, which we won't get into, but suffice to say, your credit card filed with Live Auctioneers is not usable to us.

Note we are “Hudson Valley Auctioneers”, a small auction house that uses “Live Auctioneers”, a large world wide platform to stream the auction, though the names are similar, we are not the same company by any means.

Which brings us to another important point:

Why does the big blue “PAY NOW” button not work after I receive my invoice?

As aforementioned, we did not sign up with Live Auctioneers direct payment system, so if you are successful on any items purchased at one of our auctions you will receive an invoice generated by Live Auctioneers with a summary of your purchases, followed by a big blue “Pay Now” button, this button will not function!

Instead of getting the message that “this auction house does not participate in direct payment” you receive an error message such as “Link Expired”, which obviously confuses a lot of clients who just keep clicking on a non functioning link.

Instead you need to call us with payment details, you can submit credit card details over the phone, send it by email (in two parts for security reasons) or, if planning to pick it up in person, pay directly when you arrive at the gallery.

Please note that we also accept cash, checks & wire transfers.

Is there a discount if I buy from you directly, or if I pay with cash?

There is not, while we certainly allow bidding on the phone, and accept left bids, the premium will be the same.

Right now we have approximately 16,000 bidders from over 30 countries approved for our auctions, offering a discount to make them change platforms would invite chaos, so the premium will be the same, regardless of method of bidding or payment.

Can I pick up my items in person? Can I preview items in person?

Yes, and yes, call us at 845 831 6800 for any information.

Do I have to pay tax if I pick up in person if I’m from out of state?

Yes, any bidder that buys from a state other than New York has to pay the sales tax on any item picked up in person, UNLESS they have a valid resale number, please note that if you have a resale number we need a copy of that certificate on file, as well as a signed ST120 (we have those for you)

So if you receive an invoice that does not show tax because you are in let’s say New Jersey, tax will apply if you decide to pick up in person, so make sure to bring a copy of your resale certificate if you have one, if not, be prepared to pay the tax.

Note that all bidders from New York will have tax added to their invoice, which we remove if you have a resale on file with us.

Note that all resale numbers will be verified through SALT validators in New York or the appropriate sites for out of state dealers.
