On July 31st, in the historic CWE (Central West End) neighborhood of St. Louis, Selkirk Auctioneers & Appraisers will hold its Inaugural Auction comprised of a wide variety of quality Fine Art, Asian Works of Art, Continental and American... Jeffers has led a team of seasoned auction and appraisal veterans at a renowned international gallery in Ohio for over twenty years. Known for cutting edge marketing, high quality auctions and outstanding customer service, Garth’s Auctioneers & Appraisers will be the driving force behind (and sister company to) the newly formed St. Louis gallery. Interested bidders will have the opportunity to visit the Selkirk Gallery at 4739 McPherson (previously occupied by acclaimed interior designer, Arlene Lilie) to browse and bid on nearly 600 lots during the daily preview hours from 10am to 5pm... “It has been important to us to not only keep St. Louis collections here,” explains Jeffers, “but to bring in consignments from other markets - fresh material for the avid St. Louis collecting community.
Eight years ago, Nicholas and Angela Snyder fell in love — not with each other but with Leotron, a robot that the couple had built from an old radio, some electrical plugs and a Polaroid camera. "Little did we know that we were both pretty enamored with robots," Nicholas Snyder tells me. "People at her office kept asking where she found it, and she said we made it. ". Since then, the Snyders have assembled more of what they call Nerdbots,... A vintage coffee canister becomes a torso, for example, or an old alarm clock evolves into a wise-looking head. This weekend, the Snyders are eager to show off their custom sculptures at the Kansas City Maker Faire, the family-friendly DIY celebration that takes over Union Station Saturday and Sunday. "People tend to buy our stuff online, so we don't get to hear the stories behind why they picked a certain bot," Nicholas Snyder says. Now in its fifth year, the Maker Faire is "more diverse than it has ever been," says Christy Nitsche, director of programming at Union Station's Science City. Also new this year, KC Film + Media's "script to screen" event includes staged readings of original scripts, special effects and talent casting.
com - Jun 23,2015 - REPAUPO, N. J. – A rare 19th century Chinese gilt bronze with enamel automaton clock boasting elaborate jewel work sailed past its pre-sale estimate of $20,000-$30,000 to finish at $526,750 in a two-day, two-session auction... The clock was the top lot in a sale that grossed just over $1. 1 million. “The owner of the clock said before the auction he'd be happy if he got $30,000 for it, so it’s safe to say he was pleased with the outcome,” said Glenn Sweeney of S & S Auction, Inc. The clock, standing 33 inches tall and 15 ¼ inches wide, featured a mechanical spinning dial on the top, spinning trees and simulated waterfalls. The buyer – a collector who asked to not be identified – said he plans to install the clock in a planned clock museum that’s not yet built, after he gives it a good cleaning and adjustment. The Sunday-Monday cataloged auction featured 320 lots of antiques and decorative arts on May 17 and 219 lots of 20th century modern and design on May 18 (2,500 uncataloged lots also came up for bid). About 250 people attended the auction in person, while over 700 others participated online, through LiveAuctioneers. The Chinese clock was the undisputed star of the May 17 session, but other top lots included a pair of Victorian burl walnut, rosewood and ebonized wood pedestals with porcelain plaques showing hand-painted putti, each pedestal 45 inches tall...
