Cordier’s Spring 2016 Antique and Fine Art Auction in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania will feature a single-owner pre-ban ivory collection, an array of sterling silver and a stunning selection of jewelry including cufflinks. The auction will be held at Cordier’s auction house in Harrisburg on May 21 and 22.


The two-day auction will begin with jewelry, coins and silver.  More than 200 lots of jewelry will include over fifty pairs of cufflinks including precious and semi-precious stones and figural designs which are certain to please buyers.  Other jewelry offerings will be an 8.91 CTW diamond duette ($8,000-12,000) and a coral and emerald pin representing Buddha.  In pocket watches, an 18 karat Vacheron Constantine and two 18 karat Patek Philippes ($1,500-2,000 each) will be offered.  A gleaming array of silver includes more than a dozen flatware sets from Reed & Barton, Wallace, Towle, Roger & Bro., Alvin, and Gorham.  Also across the block will be numerous lots of Tiffany, Whiting, Kirk, and Steiff.


More than 100 lots of a single-owner, pre-ban ivory collection includes figures, tusks, snuffs, netsukes, and a 24 inch tall carved ivory figure of a phoenix in foliage ($2,000-3,000).  A single-owner Waterford collection that was featured in an issue of Waterford Reflections will feature more than 30 lots including a 19 inch covered urn vase.  Glass will also feature a Royal Flemish lidded vase ($2,000-3,000).  In other collectibles will be two fully restored vehicles: a 1984 Monte Carlo and a 1986 Chevrolet S-10 pick-up truck.


Art will include a Peter Lik (Nevada / Australia, B. 1959) photograph print entitled “Santorini Terrace” ($2,000-4000) and a screen print entitled “Campbells Soup Can on Shopping Bag” by Andy Warhol (New York/Pennsylvania, 1928-1987) estimated at $700-1,000.  Furnishings include a beautifully inlaid J.C.
