BEACON, N.Y. — On June 27, Hudson Valley Auctioneers conducted an unreserved auction, featuring property from multiple estates from all categories. Among the Midcentury Modern decorative arts and objects, as unusual as a gilt reliquary, a Reed & Barton 950 Martelé silver tea set emerged for $6,250. Meant to emulate Gorham’s Martelé silver line, the Reed & Barton set used a higher silver standard (950/1000) and is far rarer than the Gorham examples. The set included a small pitcher, creamer, sugar bowl, a hinged teapot on a stand, a coffee pot and a covered bowl. More on this sale and its eclectic offerings in a future review. Prices quoted include the buyer’s premium as reported by the auction house.
