THE COLLECTORS' SALE
Create an original, cultured space and define your sense of style with curated pieces from Salcedo Auctions’ popular June sale, The Collectors’ Sale, featuring a rich array of Philippine and international art , furniture, décor, jewelry, rare books, prints, and maps. The auction, consisting of over 300 lots, will be held on Saturday, 3 June, 11am at Three Salcedo Place.
For the inveterate host, soften the sheen of ornate silver against a backdrop of Art Deco marble furniture and an abstract painting by Gus Albor. Crystal accents from Daum, Charles Schnieder and František Halama add dimension to any chic, monochromatic spread, while unique accents such as a sterling palitera or a Murano chandelier double as conversation starters.
Estate gemstones in vintage cuts and settings refresh the wardrobe; and a statement accessory serves as an investment in style—whether it be a rare diamond peacock brooch or a Birkin (or two) from the house of Hermès. For the man of the house, the geometric lines of a graphic salakot, a classic table lighter or carved bastons introduce a sophisticated swagger to a gentleman’s corner.
Fine prints and drawings from National Artist Jose Joya, Mauro Malang Santos, and Salvador Dalí, among others, refresh an empty nook for every change in season. Abstracted shapes and color field compositions are uniquely paired with the primitivism of fine Ifugao bululs. Classical sculptures and intricate cartography that pay homage to bygone eras set the stage for plotting adventures when paired with oversized furniture such as a pair of butaca armchairs; while a sophisticated late 19th century narra comoda adorned with bone inlay finds a perfect complement in the post-impressionism of Galo Ocampo, the festive cubism of National Artist Ang Kiukok, and the stunning drapery of National Artist BenCab.
