Description: Offered for your consideration two extremely nice mold made ceramic Pre-Columbian Teotihuacan Artifacts , circa 200 to 800 AD, from the private collection of Professor Hesso Von Winning. On display stands the bust on the left has nice detail in the eyes and nose area and on the right more detail in the bust and an elaborate headdress, both are displayed on custom stands. These pieces usually were parts of pottery or full figures. Both have original certificates of authenticity from their original auction. ( G1 ) ****************** BIOGRAPHY OF Hasso von Winning, : was a distinguished scholar of Pre-Columbian civilizations, notably West Mexican cultures. The German Archaeologist responsible for the Discovery of much of the ancient city of Teotihuacan. Professor von Winning's extensive fieldwork was supported by his analysis of thousands of ceramic tomb fragments and glyphs. Analyzed and catalogued over a span of more than thirty years. He also wrote much on the subject including the main reference for Mexican Pre-Columbian art entitled, "Pre-Columbian Art of Mexico and Central America. Upon his death, his private collection went to auction. **************** HISTORY OF Teotihuacan: is an ancient sacred site northeast of Mexico City, Mexico. It is a very popular side trip from Mexico City, and for good reason. The ruins of Teotihuacán are among the most remarkable in Mexico and some of the most important ruins in the world. Teotihuacán means "place where gods were born," reflecting the Aztec belief that the gods created the universe here. Constructed around 300 AD, the holy city is characterized by the vast size of its monuments, carefully laid out on geometric and symbolic principles. Its most monumental structures are the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. Evidence from their murals indicates that the Teotihuacános were formidable warriors and that their aim in warfare was not conquest of territory but the capture of prisoners who were sacrificed to avert the end of the world. It appears that the primary deity at Teotihuacán was a female, called the "Spider Woman" by scholars. There are also depictions of other female deities, including a Water Goddess. According to archaeoastronomer John B. Carlson, the cult of the planet Venus that determined wars and human sacrifices elsewhere in Mesoamerica was prominent at Teotihuacán as well. Ceremonial rituals were timed with the appearance of Venus as the morning and evening star. The symbol of Venus at Teotihuacán appears as a star or half star with a full or half circle. For reasons that are not known for certain, the inhabitants of Teotihuacán gradually abandoned their great city around 700 AD. Scholars believe the decline was probably caused by overpopulation and depletion of natural resources. About 50 years after its abandonment, Teotihuacán was destroyed by fire, leaving some of its greatest monuments buried under millions of tons of earth. It is possible that the city was deliberately burned by its former inhabitants, or by invaders that regarded the religion of Teotihuacán as a false . It was the Aztecs who gave Teotihuacán its name, when they arrived here in about 1320. The name means "City of Gods," and they believed the gods had gathered here to create the sun and moon after the last world ended. Teotihuacán was highly revered by the Aztecs and used as a pilgrimage center. Already astonished at the size and sophistication of Mexico City (Tenochtitlán), we can only imagine the reaction of Fernando Cortes and his men when they stumbled upon the great ceremonial center of Teotihuacán in 1520. Legend has it that one of the reasons the Aztecs were defeated so quickly by the outnumbered Spaniards was that they mistook him for Quetzalcoatl, who was expected to arrive from the Atlantic in the form of a bearded white man.

Teotihuacán means "place where gods were born," reflecting the Aztec belief that the gods created the universe here.

Its most monumental structures are the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon. Evidence from their murals indicates that the Teotihuacános were formidable warriors and that their aim in warfare was not conquest of territory but the capture of prisoners who were sacrificed to avert the end of the world. It appears that the primary deity at Teotihuacán was a female, called the "Spider Woman" by scholars. There are also depictions of other female deities, including a Water Goddess. According to archaeoastronomer John B. Carlson, the cult of the planet Venus that determined wars and human sacrifices elsewhere in Mesoamerica was prominent at Teotihuacán as well. Ceremonial rituals were timed with the appearance of Venus as the morning and evening star. The symbol of Venus at Teotihuacán appears as a star or half star with a full or half circle. For reasons that are not known for certain, the inhabitants of Teotihuacán gradually abandoned their great city around 700 AD. Scholars believe the decline was probably caused by overpopulation and depletion of natural resources. About 50 years after its abandonment, Teotihuacán was destroyed by fire, leaving some of its greatest monuments buried under millions of tons of earth. It is possible that the city was deliberately burned by its former inhabitants, or by invaders that regarded the religion of Teotihuacán as a false . It was the Aztecs who gave Teotihuacán its name, when they arrived here in about 1320.

Teotihuacán was highly revered by the Aztecs and used as a pilgrimage center. Already astonished at the size and sophistication of Mexico City (Tenochtitlán), we can only imagine the reaction of Fernando Cortes and his men when they stumbled upon the great ceremonial center of Teotihuacán in 1520. Legend has it that one of the reasons the Aztecs were defeated so quickly by the outnumbered Spaniards was that they mistook him for Quetzalcoatl, who was expected to arrive from the Atlantic in the form of a bearded white man.

L22 POSSIBLE PITTSBURGH 1920s CAST ORNATE CARAMEL SLAG GLASS SINGLE BULB LAMP

Lot 22: L22 POSSIBLE PITTSBURGH 1920s CAST ORNATE CARAMEL SLAG GLASS SINGLE BULB LAMP

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are pleased to offer this gorgeous, ornate 1920s cast metal base brass patinad caramel slag glass paneled 18 inch diameter library reading lamp. Originally thought to be an Empire lamp, we find ourselves in a conundrum. A close examination of the internals reveals a single bulb socket, which differs from the standard Empire 18 inch shade 2 bulb configuration, as well as most of the 20s period large table lamps. Also, there is the 3 stanchion shade support which belies the classic dual rod style, and we believe is a era 1930s replacement. We have examined over 400 slag glass paneled lamps, and alas, cannot exactly match either the base or the Byzantine oval crown floral medallion pattern shade. The closest base match we found is an S-1321 1/2 Electrolier, by Pittsburgh Lamp & Glass, found on Page #67 of Better Electric Lamps of the 20â¿¿s and 30â¿¿s / by L-W Book Sales, albeit with the 2 bulb socket. Hairline to one panel. Other possible suspects could be Lightolier, Millers, and perhaps Royal Lamp. Even without the finial, this is an exceptionally fine lamp with incredible Persian influence shade & lappet crown.

It is said that warriors embedded rubies in their skin to give them courage and protection when they went into battle. The ruby was also considered to be a talisman to ward off danger, evil and even bad dreams. Because rubies were symbols of power, emperors and kings and other members of royalty favored wearing them. It is said that rubies set in rings should be worn on the left hand for protection, and to provide the wearer with the energy to make good and wise decisions. Some sources also attribute healing powers to rubies, which are said to assist blood circulation and to detoxify the body.

L62 SWISS HD CARVED 1930s BLACK FOREST WALNUT GOAT, PINE INKWELL PENHOLDER SET

Lot 62: L62 SWISS HD CARVED 1930s BLACK FOREST WALNUT GOAT, PINE INKWELL PENHOLDER SET

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are very pleased to offer this distinctive hand carved Black Forest Walnut scarce figural goat + pine tree inkwell & hollowed log pen holder group, finished during the 1930s in the lovely village of St. Gallen, Switzerland. The towns location is unique, as it borders Germany, Austria and the Principality of Liechtenstein. This hardwood carving has fine details, and the hollowed base log may actually be wide enough to double as a pipe holder on a gentlemans desk. The name and foundation of St. Gallen stem from the Irish missionary monk Gallus who founded a hermitage here around 612. From 747, the then St. Gallen monastery was already following Benedictine Rule, which required the contemplative study of books and accordingly also stipulated the presence of a library. In the Middle Ages, the town developed into an important hub of culture and education in Europe. Later, the St. Gallen embroideries attracted international recognition and brought prosperity to the town. The most famous landmark is its Baroque cathedral with the Abbey Library, which houses some 140,000 documents â¿¿ in part hand-written and over a thousand years old. The library probably also has Switzerlandâ¿¿s most beautiful Rococo hall. The entire Abbey precinct was declared a UNESCO world heritage site in 1983.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are pleased to offer this Antique Framed Original Hand Colored Aquatint Engraving. This is Le Depart after Carle Vernet engraved by Philibert Louis Debucourt in the early 1800s. Carle Vernet was trained by his father, Claude-Joseph. He won the Prix de Rome in 1782 and the Legion of Honor in 1808 with one of his battle scenes. His paintings depict historical events and daily life with accuracy in detail but ideally portrayed. Vernet was also a horseman, riding until his death and often depicting the animals in his paintings. Debucourt, was born in Paris in 1755, and became a pupil of Vien. He executed a few plates in mezzotint, such as the Heureuse famille, the Benediction de la mariee, and the Cruche cassee, after his own designs. Most of his work was, however, in aquatint. He became the leading maker of multi-plate color prints, combining washes of aquatint with line-engraving. He used a number of different techniques, but most involved three color plates, and a fourth key plate, outlining the design in black. Some of his work was satirical, such as La promenade publique, an aquatint of 1792 showing a crowd in the gardens the Palais-Royal. As well as work from his own designs, he made aquatints after Carle Vernet, including the Horse Frightened by a Lion, the Horse Frightened by Lightning and the Strayed Huntsman. Debucourt died at Belleville in 1832..... G208Investment grade art, posters, silver from Cashiers NC estate collection all carefully appraised and reviewed, formal appraisal available for $50.

Nimmo, 14 King William Street, Strand, London: 1892. Professionally framed, measuring 22.25 x 18.75 in the frame. This was a Series of beautiful British chromolithographs of porcelain produced by the famous French manufacturer Sèvres.

Lot 68: L68 ANTIQUE FRAMED c.1807 ORIGINAL PARIS EDITION PIRANESI COPPER PLATE ENGRAVING

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are pleased to offer this Antique c. 1801-1807 Rare Original Paris Edition Engraving by Giovanni Battista (also Giambattista) Piranesi b.1720 â¿¿ d.1778. In excellent condition, professionally framed and matted, measuring 36 x 28. Piranesi was an Italian artist famous for his etchings of Rome and of fictitious and atmospheric prisons. Piranesi also became a successful antique restorer and dealer. He worked with entrepreneurs like Gavin Hamilton, setting up a showroom in his workshop for visiting British aristocrats and wealthy gentleman tourists. After his fatherâ¿¿s death, his son Francesco successfully published some of Piranesiâ¿¿s unfinished works, completed new volumes of his own works and reprinted earlier volumes with additional plates of his own. Francesco and his brother Pietro were both heavily involved in revolutionary politics so when Rome fell to the Neapolitan and British forces the Piranesi family left Italy for Paris, under official protection. A year later, in 1800, with nearly all the plates from Piranesiâ¿¿s studio in their possession, the two sons set up a printing firm, the Chalcographie des Freres Piranesi, in Paris and produced a 25-volume set of prints that came to be known as the First Paris Edition. By 1809 Francesco Piranesi was deeply in debt and when he died in 1810 the French government impounded the copper plates. Further editions were produced up to 1835 when the firm of Firmin-Didot acquired the plates. They continued to issue impressions until 1839 when the plates were bought by the Camera Apostolica in Rome. The plates are now housed in the Calcografie Nazionale in Rome.

Lot 72: L72 CHINESE 1870s QING DYNASTY HD CARVED GESSO / ENAMEL PAINTED STANDING BUDDHA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are very pleased to present this spectacular and valuable hand carved, possibly Sandalwood, Chinese (in lieu of the Tibetan) standing Buddha, almost assuredly from the latter Tongzhi (1862-1874) to the early Guangxu reign of the Qing Dynasty (1875-1908). This extraordinary early Gesso sealed statuette features the classic longer face Buddha with the close cropped curly hair, in deference to the rounder Tibetan facial characteristics + crowned hair & headdress. The body enamel that resembles Cinnabar Lacquer, is a handsome deep finish, that has been noted from the mid 1800s. Most all the period Buddhas such as ours, carry the symbolic medicine bowl in the left hand, signifying health & happiness offered to all, but there is one other subtle distinction between the Chinese & Tibetan examples, and that is most of the Tibetans have supremely ornate robes overall, while most of the traditional Chinese forms carry well decorated lapels & sashes, with more subtle robe fabric patterns. Another finish feature that dates this wonderful Buddha to the 19th century, is the understated Lotus Leaf base, and plinth with stylized rather than full head sinuous dragons. After the turn of the century, the perception of statuary, especially those for the export market, became extremely busy, using every good luck symbol in the vernacular, and therefore, the greater the level of decoration, generally the newer the item. This is a very special Qing Dynasty Buddha. G99Investment grade art, posters, silver from Cashiers NC estate collection all carefully appraised and reviewed, formal appraisal available for $50.

L82 CHINESE BRONZE DIPPED CAST METAL 1910 IMPRESSED BASE VOLUPTUOUS FEMALE DEITY

Lot 82: L82 CHINESE BRONZE DIPPED CAST METAL 1910 IMPRESSED BASE VOLUPTUOUS FEMALE DEITY

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: This is a very fine and quite voluptuous bronze dipped case metal ca. 1900 to 1915 Chinese / Tibetan female Deity with an impressed base leaf symbol, and a solid bronze seating rim, accented with lotus leaves. This highly provocative statuette does not fit the classic mold for the Goddess Guanyin, especially as she has the full figured Tibetan face & forehead dot representing the Seat of the White Bodhichitta in the crown of Chakra. Nonetheless, Guanyin, carrying her sacred Lingzhi fungus, is to be found in a number of unique interpretations, saluting her inner beauty. This exceptionally sexual rendition of a Goddess may actually be another persona, but we are unable to identify her. Perhaps our expert buyers will know. In any event, this is a truly special statuette. G98Investment grade art, posters, silver from Cashiers NC estate collection all carefully appraised and reviewed, formal appraisal available for $50.

Lot 83: L83 ANTIQUE FRAMED RARE BLOCH HAND COLORED COPPERPLATE ENGRAVING - FISH STUDY

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: We are pleased to offer this Antique Framed Rare Original Bloch Hand Colored Fish Study Copperplate Engraving. From the finest ichthyology color plate set ever produced, a monumental and beautiful work that continued to be a primary reference for the naturalists into the 19th century and is still admired today for its sumptuous illustrations. The plates reproduce the bright natural coloring of the fish, some of which were heightened with gold, silver or bronze to imitate the metallic sheen of scales. Professionally framed and matted. Measures 26.75 x 19.5 in the Frame. Marcus Elieser Bloch was born in Anspach, Germany, and began his career as a doctor in Berlin. Later in life, at the age of 56, he turned to the study of fish. Following the practice of other naturalists during the Enlightenment, he collected specimens locally and through correspondence, and involved himself with a network of scholarly contacts in Central Europe. His first scientific work of importance won him a prize from the Academy of Copenhagen. This was followed by his pioneering major work on fish, Icthyologie, or histoire naturelle, generale et particuliere, in which he described over 200 species for the first time accompanied by hand-colored copperplate engravings.

L84 FRAMED ANTIQUE 1892 HAND COLORED AND GILDED CHROMOLITHOGRAPH - SEVRES

Lot 84: L84 FRAMED ANTIQUE 1892 HAND COLORED AND GILDED CHROMOLITHOGRAPH - SEVRES

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: This rare hand colored and hand gilded chromolithograph is from the scarce and fine The Soft Porcelain of Sevres, With an Historical Introduction by John C. Nimmo, 14 King William Street, Strand, London: 1892. Professionally framed, measuring 22.25 x 18.75 in the frame. This was a Series of beautiful British chromolithographs of porcelain produced by the famous French manufacturer Sèvres. Soft-paste porcelain, or Porcelaine de France, was manufactured by Sevres during the 18th century until hard-paste, or Porcelaine Royale, permanently replaced it in 1804. The prints capture the rich colors and gold tones of painted and gilded cups, saucers, tea services, vases, jardinières and other decorative objects. The examples of Sevres include royal commissions such as a tray for Madame du Barry, the mistress of Louis XV, and commissions for aristocrats such as Baron Alphonse de Rothschild. The complete set of 50 plates, representing 250 watercolors categorized by period, type and style of original Sevres pieces, was originally issued over a year-long period in ten installments. It was a reference work for decorative arts designers and collectors, making it one of the earliest scholarly works on 18th Century antiques. The examples of Sevres in the prints are attractively arranged in brilliant colors either as singles, pairs or groups, making the chromolithographs fine works of art in their own right. The set⿿s value as a reference and decorative work is still recognized today. Research Consulted: The Encyclopedia of Antiques. rev. ed.
