Sunday at Sotheby’s – well not really!

Really not Sunday but visited on a Friday.

I often stop at Sotheby’s just to look at what is on exhibition. It is one of the many free things to do in NYC.

Similar auction houses are Christie’s, Doyles and Bonham’s as well as several others scattered around the city. Often there are several floors that can be visited.

Today, I focused on the following:

 

Sotheby’s is pleased to offer a superb selection of Russian works, including decorative pieces of furniture and important  bronzes from distinguished private collections.

Furniture – not sure they are Russian but all had tags. 

 

 Painting and Art Work 

 

 

 

Important European Silver, Vertu, and Russian Works of Art

 .. AND …

 The small photographs are mine  but click the Titles for a better view  from Sotheby’s.
