Objects in the single-owner estate represent 6 continents: Europe, North America, South America, Australasia, Asia and Africa. The collection comes from Dale and Patty Vining, avid collectors who picked up exotic pieces during Dale's 17 years as an agricultural attaché at four overseas U.S. embassies, from 1964-1981.

During their travels, the couple picked up pieces from Europe, including Denmark, Spain, Switzerland, Holland and Germany. When the couple spent time in Asia, they acquired stunning pieces from Malaysia, Bali, Bangkok and Hong Kong. As Dale was assigned to embassies in Kenya and Nairobi, they continued collecting here as well as in Egypt, Mexico, New Zealand and of course, their homeland, America.

The sale will be held on February 27. Check out the full catalog on Barnebys here.
