Antiques & The Arts Weekly: Fine Art, Design, Jewelry: Abell’s Top Lots Spell Quality In All Categories

LOS ANGELES — A strong,
408-lot sale broke out at Abell
Auction on October 18, bringing
to the fore a mix of fine art,
design and jewelry that brought
in a total of just over $2 million in
gross sales.
Taking the top of the sale was a
small, 8-by-10-inch original “Fips,
Mouse” by Andy Warhol (1928-
1987), synthetic polymer paint
and silkscreen ink on canvas,
that sold for $87,000. Warhol created
a series called the “Toy
Paintings” and exhibited them at
the Zurich gallery of Bruno
Bischofberger in 1983 in an exhibition
titled “Paintings for Children.”
During that exhibition,
each work hung at the eye level
of a toddler, forcing any adult
viewer to crouch to see them.
Warhol said the works were
inspired by his collection of childhood
toys.
Joe Baratta, senior vice president
of business development
and evaluation at Abell was
pleased to bring the original to
the market.
“We sell a lot of Warhol multiples,
but in my history here we
have never sold a painting,”
Baratta said. “Even though it
was a modest size, it’s a good
price for a Warhol original.”
Six works by Scottish artist
Philip Jackson (b 1944) were sold
from the estate of Lee Phillip
Bell, co-creator of The Young and
the Restless and The Bold and the
Beautiful. Jackson has numerous
public commissions throughout
the United Kingdom and serves
as the Royal Sculptor to Queen
Elizabeth II. Highest among his
works in the sale was the largest,
a standing masked figure in
bronze, 97 inches high, that
brought $53,125. Only two of the
artist’s works have ever sold
higher at auction. Behind at
$46,875 was “The Sentinels,” a
group of three standing bronze
robed figures, each 26 inches
high.
“Those were outstanding prices,”
Baratta said, noting that the
majority of them sold to a single
international collector.
In furniture, a “Nuage” or
“Cloud” coffee table by Guy De
Rougemont (b 1935) in brass and
plexiglass brought a good price at
$81,250. Rougemont’s first cloud
table was created per a commission
by French decorator Henri
Samuel in the 1970s.
Perhaps the most notable furniture
in the sale was a suite of
seven Sam Maloof designs from
the estate of Lynn Altman that
were sold to benefit art acquisitions
at the Huntington Library,
Art Museum and Botanical Garden.
Leading the group at
$25,000 was a set of 12 walnut
dining chairs produced in 1966
with spindle backs. Behind at
$16,250 was the dining table,
also in walnut and made a year
later in 1967. Taking $13,750 was
the last piece of the dining suite,
a three-piece walnut buffet made
in 1962. The gross on Altman’s
Maloof works totaled $81,875.
“The market for contemporary
furniture and graphics continues
to be strong,” Baratta said. “I was
pleasantly surprised by the prices
for certain things.”
All prices reported include buyer’s
premium. For information,

Antiques & The Arts Weekly: Rougemont’s Cloud Table Floats High At Abell

LOS ANGELES — Bidders
pushed contemporary artist/
designer Guy De Rougemont’s
(b 1935) “Nuage” or “Cloud”
coffee table to $93,750 at Abell
Auction’s October 18 sale.
Rougemont first created the
design in the 1970s as a commission
for decorator Henri
Samuel, who had seen a line of
cloud-shaped sculptures that
Rougemont had produced in
the late 1960s.
The Plexiglas and brass
example at Abell was not illuminated,
though Rougemont
was known to include illumination
in some of these
designs. It had come to sale
from the Gelbart Family Trust
of Beverly Hills, Calif., and
sold to an online bidder.
A sale review will appear in a
future issue.

ABC 7: Hundreds of items that once belonged to filmmaker and actress Penny Marshall will be auctioned online

LOS ANGELES — During her life, we knew Penny Marshall mainly as a comedic actress, and later, as a celebrated director. But she also had another talent and she spent decades working on it. Marshall was a collector. And when it came to collecting, you could say Penny was in a league of her own.

Marshall had a collection of baseballs. The director of “A League of Their Own” and “Big” actually had, by her daughter’s account, more than 50 different collections of various things.

“She collected quilts and Beacon blankets and ribbon ladies and memorial arts and every kind of kitsch and dishes and Bakelite. You name it!” said Reiner.

Now, more than 300 items from Marshall’s estate are heading for an online auction on Sunday, September 13th. Abell Auction Company says there may be something in your price range.

“So you’re able to buy items that range anywhere from $50 to upwards of $40,000,” said Joe Baratta, Abell Auction Co.

The daughter of the star of TV’s “Laverne & Shirley” is now working to honor her mother, who died in 2018. The two started talking a decade ago about all of Penny’s belongings… with many pieces already donated to art museums, sports museums and universities, all at Marshall’s request. Reiner hopes the items now up for auction go to people who will love them like her mother did.

One lighting item that caught my eye. It had a sign that said: “Electrocution in progress when lit.”

“For a time, my Mom was fascinated with serial killers,” laughed Reiner.

Marshall had a room just for her collection of ships and boats. I asked Reiner if her Mom was a hoarder. “Perhaps. It’s a form of mania in the most creative of ways that then she turned into really wanting to have an impact as opposed to just hoarding it.
For instance, with her art collection, Marshall liked to champion the work of the unacknowledged.

Her tastes were eclectic, for sure.

“For someone who wore sparkly tennis shoe Converse all the time and, you know, sports clothes, she had the most feminine boudoir-lamped room you’ve ever seen,” said Reiner. “And it was very beautiful.”

Hundreds of items that once belonged to filmmaker and actress Penny Marshall will be auctioned online next Sunday.

This sale isn’t for Marshall fans looking to score kitschy monogrammed “Laverne & Shirley” sweaters. The “L” in this auctions stands for lamps. Lots of them.

“The lamp collection is so beautiful and they were around my whole life,” Marshall’s daughter Tracy Reiner told the Daily News by phone from her New Mexico home. “It was like a museum.”

The ornate assemblage of more than 200 lights is much more classic than one might expect from Marshall, the zany “Big” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” director, whose daughter remembers her mom roaming around their ornate Los Angeles home in funky sneakers.

While she conceded it’s unlikely that collection will stay together, Reiner said “That would be amazing!” if one collector bought the whole lot.

One of the big-ticket items Reiner and her family is ready to part with is a painting by Donald Roller Wilson that has been a conversation piece for the show business personalities who visited Marshall’s Southern California home over the course of several decades.

“I grew up with everyone in the comedy world discussing that painting,” she chuckled. “I want someone else to talk about it now.”

That wall-sized piece is expected to fetch upward of $35,000.

The auctions includes multiple paintings, many with a classic Americana bent and several of which feature dogs. Marshall had a half-dozen pups that her canine-loving daughter can recall.

Another historic keepsake up for grabs is a 50-inch New York Daily News rolling newsstand cart valued at $300.

Tracy’s uncle — filmmaker Garry Marshall — once worked for the Daily News’ sports section and she suspects that cart was his at some point.

Reiner, whose father Rob Reiner was married to Marshall from 1971 to 1981, has been holed up in New Mexico since the pandemic began and has decided to stick around. While she has some of her mom’s stuff there, it won’t all fit.

“I thought I was going to do a little renovation and the world shut down,” she said of her home.

Reiner said she’s wondered if her mom’s collection of lamps, paintings, furniture sculptures and trinkets was some form of hoarding, but thinks too much thought and “passion” was put into the acquisitions for that to be the case. She has a hard time calculating what it’s all worth and is glad to let Abell Auction Co. deal with that side of things.

“My mom didn’t collect stuff just to sell it, and she wasn’t done,” Reiner said.

Marshall died in December 2018 in Los Angeles. The Bronx-born Yankees fan was 78.

Parting with her mom’s treasures might not be easy for Reiner, but as an actress who’s done dozens of films and TV shows, the 56-year-old performer has learned to roll with the punches. That includes being beaten out by Penelope Ann Miller for a role in 1990′s “Awakenings,” which she says, without missing a beat, was her favorite of the films her mom directed.

“That’s a movie, when I saw it and they were doing the test screenings, I just thought, ’Wow,’” she recalled.

Reiner admits it was “awkward” not getting the part in her mom’s movie, but she wasn’t worried she’d missed her shot at the big time.

“We’re a famously nepotistic family,” she concedes.

Part of the reason for that, Reiner said, is because you can yell at family on set without anyone quitting or getting in trouble. Penny first hit the spotlight in brother Garry’s series “The Odd Couple,” and he subsequently cast her in “Laverne & Shirley,” which made her a star.

Tracy managed to score parts in “A League of Their Own,” “Apollo 13,” “That Thing You Do,” and “The Princess Diaries,” but won’t be remembered as the zaniest Reiner on film.

“They’re all very funny and I cried in 20 movies,” she joked.

The Abell Gallery will host an an auction preview by appointment on Saturday at its Los Angeles facility, a day before the Abell.com online auction goes live.

While Reiner isn’t sure how much the auction will make, she said Marshall’s family “will continue following her map,” which has included contributions to charities supporting Negro League baseball, girls baseball, the military, veterans with traumatic brain injuries and retired sports figures and artists.

Items can be previewed online now.

Marshall is most beloved for her role as Laverne DeFazio on the award-nominated television sitcom “Laverne & Shirley” (1976-1983), for which she received three Golden Globe nominations.

She wanted others to remember each artist’s era and work, and championed each collection into some recognition. The collections of my mom and her dear lifelong friend Carrie Fisher were to revere the unseen artists.”

Notable auction items include a pair of Handel Native American motif table lamps (est. $5,000-7,000); Tiffany Studios bronze smoker’s floor lamp (est. $2,000-$3,000); Donald Roller Wilson painting “Libra” (est. $35,000-$40,000); Annie Leibovitz double photograph of famous directors (est. $5,000-$7,000); Bigelow Kennard & Co. eight stained glass screens (est. $6,000-$8,000); Daum Nancy Majorelle fixture (est. $1,500-$2,000); Pairpoint Puffy San Remo table lamp ($800-$1,200); boat form fire mantel ($800-$1,200); and a folk art collage painting ($4,000-$6,000).
