Spring is coming and so are auctions in the United States:

1. Wright Modern Design, March 23rd, with a large selection of American designers. Some fine European pieces too. Since the chair is the emblem of this blog, these two Alvar Aalto Model 21 have caught our eye. Not in pristine condition, but clearly pre-war models sourced in the U.K. See also several pieces by Pierre Jeanneret from Chandigarh (Wright offered some already last year): it will be interesting to see how they fare compared to last week’s Artcurial auction.

2. For Eames lovers, Wright Eames Auction on April 8th. Given the size of Charles and Ray Eames production and the number of knock-offs, we always found it a challenge to identify good Eames vintage. A catalogue raisonné would definitely help. We can trust Richard Wright to assemble a great selection for us. Looking particularly forward to a nice vintage ESU model.

3. Treadway-Toomey Galleries Auction, March 7th,  with two fine lots of a K.E.M. Weber armchair by Lloyd Manufacturing. See our previous post on Weber.

4. Rago Arts is inviting consignements for its Modern Auction on April 25th.

5. LAMA is also inviting consignments for its Spring Auction.
