An impressive array of antiques, collectibles, furniture, decorative accessories and jewelry hailed from estates in Salem, Hamilton, Swampscott and beyond. (All prices reflect a 15% buyers premium)

A remarkable 3-piece suite of jewelry, previously owned by First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln, wowed auction goers. The set consisted of a pair of yellow gold diamond earrings with a matching brooch, containing 58 old mine cut diamonds with approximately 4.70 carats total weight. Both historically and intrinsically valuable, the jewelry descended in the family of Robert Allen, Jr. A feverish bidding war culminated in a sale to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, with a final price of $24,150

Topping the auction was a painting by renowned Cuban artist Mario Carreño, Concierto de Guitarra, 1946, which brought an astounding $253,000. Carreño, originally from Havana, Cuba, has lived and worked in Spain, Mexico, Paris, New York and Chile. His work, predominantly abstract in style, is highly sought-after.

Bidders swooned over a painting by Cape Cod artist Ralph Eugene Cahoon. Housed in an octagonal metal leaf frame made by the artist, Sirene’s Tonsorial Parlor illustrates Cahoon’s penchant for mermaids as subject matter. This highly collectible painting fetched a final price of $43,700.

Furniture was also in high demand at the sale. An 18th Century Chippendale mahogany chest highlighted the furniture category of this two-day auction. Standing 31” high with four drawers, the piece realized an impressive $34,500. Also featured was a rare 18th Century Italian walnut secretary desk from the Clark family (Clark Thread Company) of Manhattan, NY. The desk, which boasts a checkered inlay writing top with a serpentine front, brought a final price of $24,150.

Surprise headliners of the auction included a pair of 19th Century Belter rosewood sofas, originally estimated $2,000-$4,000, which realized $11,500; a 20th Century Rebecca Cauman sterling silver cranberry glass bowl, estimated $300-$400, which brought $4,945; and a lithograph, Native Son, by Afro-American artist John Wilson that fetched a final $5,460, decimating its original estimate of $250-$350.

“I’m thrilled with the turnout for our first outdoor auction of the season,” comments Frank Kaminski, owner of Kaminski Auctions. “A selection of top-notch consignments, combined with the idyllic weather, really made for an exciting auction.”

Kaminski Auctions’ next takes place May 31–June 1, 2008 and will feature fine art, antiques and collectibles from estates spanning across New England to the West Coast.
