Collectors of art and antiques, and all those wishing in this new year to grace their homes with more sophistication and genteel style, take note—an auction taking place at noon Sunday, Jan. 5, at Clarke Auction Gallery in Larchmont, N.Y., features the contents of a distinguished northern Connecticut estate.

According to a story on the auction at ArtfixDaily.com, the items up for auction from the 12,000-square-foot estate represent the “distinguished eye” of the collector and “decades of acquisition.”

“Whether for the massive assortment of antique Asian objects and furniture, the large selection of Victorian, antique and vintage furniture and design, the classic fine art, or the various degrees of stained glass, bronzes, and other miscellany, the January 5th sale at Clarke will be the highlight ... of the year to come,” the ArtfixDaily.com story says, noting oil paintings from 19th- and early 20th-century artists, including Wesley Webber, Marshall Johnson, Lemuel Eldred and Eugene Berthelon, among others.

“A big part of the excitement generated from the estate relates to the incredibly detailed and extensive assortment of Asian objects, art, and furniture of the estate.  There are over 100 lots of Asian items, a majority of which are antique and vintage Chinese porcelain,” the story says.
