Salcedo Auctions’ The Well Appointed Life: An Auction Weekend

Now on its second year, Salcedo Auctions’ The Well Appointed Life: An Auction Weekend returns to the Rockwell Tent on 19–20 September 2015 with an even larger array of art, jewelry, timepieces, collectibles and investment quality pieces that will be going under the hammer. From 5–19 September, the Kirov Lounge and Model Unit, and the lobby of the new 8 Rockwell Building at Rockwell Center will be transformed into a preview gallery of all the lots to be auctioned from The Well Appointed Life’s four sale categories—Important Philippine Art, Connoisseur Collection, Fine Jewelry & Timepieces, and Rare Automobiles.

A selection of items that reflect a lifestyle attuned to aesthetics, design and style, The Well Appointed Life promises to be a venue for even the most discerning of individuals to find pieces of significance. Important Philippine Art will feature, among its many highlights, Fernando Zóbel’s gestural monochrome, Arganda (1961) from his Serie Negra or ‘Black Series;’ Vicente Manansala’s Candle Vendors (1977), with its impressive transformation of perspective and the artist’s signature transparent cubist style;  Jorge Pineda’s Las Buyeras (1903), an intriguing speculated early version of his eponymous award-winning entry to the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair; The Tempest (1965), a very rare thickly impastoed abstract expressionist oil by Jose Joya; and a highly coveted BenCab canvas painting from his celebrated Larawan series.  The Connoisseur Collection includes a spectacular diamond hourglass from De Beers, fine china from Hermes and Limoges, a first-edition Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, a 27-inch gilded Sevres vase from the iconic former royal porcelain manufacturer, and a signed print from the Catalan Surrealist, Joan Miró. On the heels of the Noli Me Tangere sold at last year’s The Well-Appointed Life auction, an even rarer book by National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal, a first edition El Filibusterismo, is among the connoisseur offerings – the first time that this piece of Philippine history is coming to auction.

Also part of this sale is a special sub-category dedicated to Philippine Tribal & Ethnographic Art, including a fine early 20th century figurative house panel in wood with heavy encrusted patina and a decorative Ifugao warrior figure from the late 19th century representing artifacts that are of importance to the legacy of our heritage. A fine and rare, platinum perpetual calendar Patek Philippe, limited-editions from Audemars Piguet, Graff, Richard Mille, and a highly desirable vintage Rolex Daytona Ref. 6263/0 are highlights of the Jewelry & Timepieces offering together with scintillating diamond jewelry and pieces from international houses Bvlgari, Mauboussin, and Van Cleef & Arpels. For the true car aficionados, this year’s Rare Automobiles will see a 1967 Shelby GT 500 “Eleanor” in impressive condition go under the hammer, among other collectible motorcars.

The Well Appointed Life caters to clients who find joy in the art of living well. The objects Salcedo Auctions will be offering this September serve as a reflection of this lifestyle. The movement of art, artifacts, and other valuable collectibles through Salcedo Auctions’ doors allow the stories of each piece to be passed on to the next generation.

As an internationally-recognized auction house, Salcedo Auctions enjoys a reputation of trust and confidence that is reflected by its sterling lineup of partners: Lexus, Rockwell, and Philippine Tatler. Working closely with specialists who curate each sale––which have broken world records––The Well Appointed Life: An Auction Weekend promises to be the lifestyle event of the season.
