An oil on board genre painting by William Aiken Walker (Md./S.C., 1838-1921), a Chinese Ming dynasty Junyao purple splashed footed pottery bowl, a set of 12 Mintons for Tiffany scenic porcelain bird plates and an English circa-1915 single-trigger, double barrel shotgun manufactured by Westley Richards will all come up for bid Saturday, September 16th. They’re just a taste of what will cross the auction block at Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ Fall Antiques, Fine Art, Firearms & Asian Auction, online and in the gallery at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, Rhode Island. Internet bidding will be available through Bidlive.Bruneauandco.com, Invaluable.com, LiveAuctioneers.com and Bidsquare.com. Phone and absentee (left) bids will also be accepted. The nearly 500-lot auction has a 12 o’clock noon (Eastern) start time and will be preceded at 10 am by a live-only DiscoverIt sale (no online bidding at all). But the 12 noon auction event is the undisputed headliner. “The fall afternoon auction should be an exciting one, featuring a diverse collection of Asian art not usually seen in our estate auctions,” said Kevin Bruneau, company president and auctioneer.
