This sale is taking place in a large, 4 story Chevy Chase home that is FULL of original art, women's designer clothing/shoes, a large collection of fine jewelry (only a fraction shown in photos), hard to find collectibles, books and more!
There are so many treasures in this home, we have added an extra day to the sale!
The owners were prominent Washingtonians/philanthropists, including an accomplished artist! A native Washingtonian, the matriarch graduated with a BA from George Washington University and a MFA from the Corcoran School of Design. She was an accomplished and prolific artist, who showed her work infrequently and only then in small venues. This is the first time her life's work can be appreciated in full. She produced paintings, drawings, collages, silk screening and sculpture. Her art was influenced by great masters, travel, architecture, everyday life and a deep appreciation for the beauty of the dance.
The house is brimming with original art and paintings and includes a full art studio. In addition, the owners were avid readers, so there are dozens and dozens of books.
There is a very extensive, wonderful collection of women's designer and couture clothing, shoes, handbags, scarves and more. Designers include: Judith Lieber, Donna Karan, Valentino, Gucci, Issey Miyaki, Fendi, Etro, YSL, Armani, Ferragamo, Stuart Weitzman, Adrienne Vittadini and others. Clothing sizes 6-8/Small/Medium. Shoes size 8.5-9AA. The photos of the shoes and clothing represent just a fraction of what is available.
A large selection of fashion and fine jewelry will be available for sale. 14K, 18K, and silver from designers such as Paul Morelli, Tiffany, Hidalgo, Penny Preville, Movado, Hermes and more, as well as delightful contemporary and vintage costume jewelry.
This is a full house! We are still making our way through the home finding treasures.
