17th - 20th Century Antique Museum Collection

Auction Details

This auction entails museum quality lots collected from multiple prestigious private collections and antique museum collections across the world. Our "Museum Collection" is a special event that we exhibit a few times per year to highlight lots of the highest quality. This collection was formed from multiple private collections, including that of Chief Joe Dan Osceola of the Seminole Tribe and others that have selected to remain anonymous living in (New York, Lima, Paris, Rome, Palm Beach, Houston, Virginia, San Francisco). There is a mix of lots from Chinese, Japanese, African, Indian, Inuit, American, Native American, and South American cultures ranging in the form of collectibles, artifacts, sculptures, estate jewelry, weapons, paintings, and more. Full disclosure is that these items were not consigned or purchased from public museums like the MET or Smithsonian, because sales of their exhibits are prohibited.
