“This sale is a great opportunity for new and seasoned collectors alike,” said Luis C. Lopez-Morton, chairman and managing director.  “There are some very interesting paintings and decorative objects that would be a great addition to any collection,” he added. A painting by Columbian artist Jaime Carrasquilla featuring his signature tuba and the beautiful “Sylvan Spring” by the highly collectible Frank Montague Moore (F.M.Moore), are among the interesting paintings to be auctioned that evening. Religious art includes an 8-foot painted Cathedral panel, a French 14 Stations of the Cross and a life-sized Sacré-Coeur statue of Christ.               

“We have a beautiful 19 piece collection of ladies jewelry, including rings, bracelets, necklaces and a pendant” said Patricia Kuehnert-Gillespy, manager of Morton Kuehnert.  “They feature gold, silver, diamonds, rubies, Columbian emerald, pearls and sapphires.  And a full length Ranch Mink coat and a three-quarter length Fox Fur on auction will look great with the jewelry,” she added.               

Kuehnert-Gillespy also said the 20 Royal Doulton figurines (each auctioned separately) are an ideal gift for a daughter or granddaughter “to cherish for a lifetime.” Other assorted treasures include carved African ivory, Dresden porcelain, Majolica, Rookwood, Roseville Bushberry, Sterling Silver Ortega pitcher, a pair of early 20th century iron gates, Nolan Ryan printers proof by Leroy Neiman and numerous lithographs and oils.
