Terri Peters & Associates’ online-only auction slated for Saturday, October 14th, at 10 am Eastern time, is bursting with more than 450 lots, from the 17th century to mid-20th century.

Examples include an 1880s Russian Faberge burl wood box, originally used as a men’s cigarette case and with a Leningrad label on the box; a superb Tiffany & Company bronze and marble mantle clock from circa the 1920s, all original; and a 17th century German faience lobed blue and white dish, decorated in under glaze blue.

Additional expected top lots include an original Andy Warhol ink drawing (not a print), signed by the Pop Art icon and titled Drawing Shoes, a subject that fed into his shoe and foot fetish; an original signed Wassily Kandinsky (Russian 1866-1944) gouache on paper (again, not a print), dated 1937 and with the Paris gallery label; a spectacular antique Chinese teakwood rose medallion arm chair, elaborately decorated with mother of pearl inlay; a rare 1920s Sinclair / Mottville caned ocean liner deck chair with thatched split seat; an original painting by Alfred Vickers (Br., 1810-1837); and a Salvador Dali signed litho.
