Leland Little's art and antiques sale offers Edouard Cortes's The Pantheon

As we've reported, Leland Little (LLAES Ltd) is holding a sale of fine wine, jewellery, art and antiques on March 18-19.

Leland continues to have strength and consistency in their fine art offerings, leading off early in the sale with Edouard Cortes's (French, 1882-1969), The Pantheon (est. $12,000 to $18,000). LLAES Ltd. is excited to offer two fresh to the market Elliott Daingerfield (North Carolina/New York, 1859-1932) works - Allegory (est. $5,000 to $7,000) and Sunset at Blowing Rock (est. $7,000 to $10,000).

Another lot to watch is Elizabeth Verner's (South Carolina, 1883-1979), Flower Vendor (est. $5,000 to $8,000). This work is signed "E. O'N Verner" on the lower right. The verso retains the mailing label from the Studio of Elizabeth O'Neil Verner. This should make an excellent investment.

A work by John Coughlin (New York, 20th century), Leatherheads (est. $1,000 to $2,000) has garnered much interest. Other very strong lots of note are a pair of still lifes by George Goodman (est. $4,000 to $6,000) and Eugene Thomason's (North Carolina, 1895-1972), Still Fishing (est. $2,000 to $4,000).

The Mid-Century Modern Furniture Department at LLAES Ltd. continues to grow. Offerings include lots such as Milo Baughman's Mid-Century bedroom suite, six pieces (est. $2,000 to $2,500) and Philip & Kelvin LaVerne's "Chan" cocktail table (est. $3,000 to $5,000).

American Furniture will be lead by an important North Carolina inlaid corner cupboard from Davidson or Guilford County, N.C., circa 1820 (est. $15,000 to $25,000) and a North Carolina Federal semi-tall chest of drawers, circa 1800-1820 (est. $1,000 to $3,000).

Fine Silver will be strong as usual, with offerings such as the George III Irish sterling silver jug (est. $600 to $900), a set of four silver gilt salt spoons by Paul Storr (est. $400 - $600), an Elkington silver-plated and cut-glass epergne (est. $2,000 to $3,000), and a set of 12 American sterling silver julep cups by Manchester Silver Co. (est. $1,000 to $2,000).

A highlight of note includes the offering of a fresh to the market collection of very rare 19th-century Italian pole puppets. Proceeds from the sale of these lots will benefit the American Dance Festival of Durham, N.C.
