Perched high above Montclair, New Jersey with million-dollar views of New York City, comes an unrivaled jewelry collection. Pieces with tantalizing estimates include works by such notable designers as Cartier, Tiffany, David Yurman, Hermes, H. Stern, Judith Ripka, Kieselstein-Cord, Paul Morelli, Penny Preville, Roberto Coin, and pieces by Paloma Picasso, Elsa Peretti and Schlumberger for Tiffany. There are a ridiculous amount of gold rings and necklaces, and examples from the Georgian, Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco periods.
Approximately a dozen pieces of Flora Danica by Royal Copenhagen are the highlight of the porcelain offering from a local estate. The family is also selling period American furniture and decorations, including Asian works of art and silver. Fine art, rugs and Chinese Export Porcelain are also part of this traditional collection.
Victorian gold mourning jewelry comes to auction from a private local collection, some marked VR for Queen Victoria. Pieces from Harding Township, Short Hills, Essex County and other locales flesh out the robust auction.
Reader’s Digest is selling approximately 150 lots that previously hung in their Pleasantville, New York offices. Prints, watercolors, lithographs and photographs are estimates to sell. The pieces are framed, itemized and labeled on verso with the company description and i.d. number.
Newark Museum is selling a group of fine art in this round of property approved for deaccesson.  The sculpture and paintings feature an abstract work on canvas by George Mathieu, (French, 1921-2012), among other fine works.
In early 2010, Nye and Company relocated to Bloomfield, New Jersey making them more easily accessible to New York City. Our location moments off major interstate arties (Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, Routes 80, 280, 287) and State Routes 3, 46 and 23, is easily found by the large-format banners on the façade.
