PLAINFIELD, N.H. – Billed as an “Auction Extravaganza,” Bill Smith’s post-Labor Day sale on September 13 was all of that, bringing the firm’s best finds from this summer. There was art from a Sunapee home, estate jewelry, silver and European antiquities, antique automobiles, even a couple of John Deere tractors. Pairing up to bring the sale’s top price was a two-piece lot comprising a French miniature commode and bronze nude that was bid to $413,000, including buyer’s premium. The French marble top miniature commode had ormolu mounts, and the nude female bronze figure was 10 inches high atop a wooden pedestal base. Watch for a full review of this sale to follow.
