The other is housed in a phenomenal oak Herter Brothers case and boasts a quality polished gilt brass movement (est. $75,000-$125,000).

Rounding out the category, other clocks of note include a rare Tiffany Studios pine needle carriage clock, with bronze case and excellent patina (est. $4,000-$6,000); a large Chelsea 8-day ship’s clock with open moon hands and silvered 7-inch dial with black Roman numerals (est. $2,500-$3,500); and a French silk thread bronze Apollo mantel clock (est. $1,500-$2,000).

The Tiffany name and legend will lead the way when it comes time for vintage lamps and lighting to illuminate the room. Two standout examples are a Tiffany Studios (N.Y.) conical daffodil table lamp shade with confetti and fragment glass (est. $40,000-$60,000) and a 20-inch Tiffany Studios signed dragonfly table lamp on a two-tone faux turtleback base (est. $40,000-$60,000).

Bronze statuary is worth noting. One is a festive bronze and ivory figure of a dancing woman by Dimitri Chiparus (1886-1947), titled Carnival, in excellent condition (est. $35,000-$45,000). The other is a James Gruzalski large bronze bust of an Indian chief wearing a puma headdress, signed, in excellent condition and with a good dark patina (est. $2,000-$3,000).

Also set to cross the block on May 22 is a Regina bow front upright changer music box in a mahogany case with shell carved crest, playing 12 discs 20.5 inches in diameter and signed on the soundboard “Regina 50871” (est. $12,000-$15,000); and a lady’s 14kt gold and diamond ring featuring one old European cut diamond of about 1.5 carats, with VS clarity (est. $4,000-$6,000).
