Brunk's upcoming auction on March 21, 22 and 23 is chock-full of a mesmerizing mix of treasures, including historic memorabilia, décor, glassware, jewelry and more. Here are the highlights:

The premiere lot in the sale is a very rare and detailed map of Virginia, published in 1808 by Bishop James Madison, a cousin of President James Madison and also president of the College of William & Mary. It is the only complete copy of Madison's map known to exist and has been in the collection of the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation since 1990, who is now selling it to benefit their acquisitions fund.
Estimated $80,000-120,000

This watercolor of Old St. Phillips Church in Charleston, South Carolina was painted by Alfred Huber Hetty, one of the leading artists of the Charleston Renaissance. Between the World Wars, Charleston flourished with an artistic spirit, evident in how the Southern city's charm was captured in architecture, landscape paintings, and watercolor portrayals. This print was completed in 1950 and captures a dreamy vision of Charleston, which Hetty described on his first visit as "heaven."
Estimated $8,000-10,000

This bold statement ring is comprised of a 4.5-5 carat emerald of Colombian origin set in 18 karat yellow gold.
Estimated $8,000-12,000

Dating to the Daoguang period of the Qing Dynasty (1821-50) is this beautiful copper-red glazed pear-shaped vase. Chinese porcelain proliferated during this period as the West became increasingly covetous of Chinese arts. There are two of these vases at the auction.
Estimated $3,000-5,000

This ornate butterfly brooch was designed by Daniel Brush. The body is resin and is embellished with orange and yellow diamonds and 22-karat gold. A former art history professor at Georgetown University, Daniel Brush has a strong following, but perhaps only 20 collectors own his one-of-a-kind pieces. He works alone, and produces at most maybe five objects a year (each with hundreds to thousands of hours investment).
Estimated $3,000-5,000

Estimated $2,000-4,000
