Teasing the season in time for the holidays, Casa de Memoria’s Auction Segundo features 235 lots of “giftable” art and antique pieces set for November 26.
Being true to its name, the Lhuillier-run auction house will be home this season to important “history pieces,” from the 18th-century painting of the “Annunciation” after Barocci (Lot 158), down to Baccarat crystal figures of the Three Magi (Lot 147). Casa Segundo also includes celebrated European porcelain and crystal brands, as well as historically-important Philippine prints, Chinese export porcelain, other Orientalia, and more.
A total of 235 Lots is now open for preview starting November 2 until the 25th. Featured below are some of the highlight Lots, meticulously selected by Miguel Rosales, The Casa’s creative director:
