CAMBRIDGE, MASS. — A mid-Eighteenth Century silver-clad carved figure of St Michael Archangel led the charge at CRN Auctions on Saturday, March 12, selling for $114,000 including premium.
Thought to be from Guatemala, the 31-inch-tall sculpture, along with other Spanish Colonial artifacts including silver, comes from the collection of a Connecticut couple who resided in Latin America beginning in the 1960s. A fixture of Latin American art, St Michael Archangel is generally shown brandishing the sword he uses to slay the Devil, often represented as a dragon.
A complete review of the sale will follow in a later issue.
