A Tiffany Studios Dragonfly table lamp will lead a 20th century design auction at Skinner in Boston on June 28.
Valued at $60,000-80,000, the design was among the first to be offered by the maker during the early 1900s. This example dates to around 1910.
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) opened Tiffany Studios in New York in 1878 after seeing the collection of stained glass at the V&A Museum in London and becoming convinced he could improve on the form using modern techniques.
A Minguren table made by Mira Nakashima is valued at $35,000-45,000.
Mira is the daughter of the groundbreaking carpenter and furniture designer George Nakashima and took over the running of his studio after his death.
The lot is built from maple burl and cherry and features the free-edge execution that was designer's hallmark. A Minguren II coffee table by George Nakashima sold for $197,000 at Sotheby's in December last year.
The sale will feature pieces by designers ranging from Mies van der Rohe to Pablo Picasso.
