Dallas, TX, USA, February 25, 2021 -- Items from the collection of the internationally recognized interior design firm Loyd-Paxton, plus consignments from other estates including an incomparable collection of rare David Webb jewelry with other fine makers, will be sold the weekend of March 20th and 21st by J. Garrett Auctioneers, online and absentee only. Start times both days are 11 am Central time.
“The Loyd-Paxton name is one that exudes glamour and mystique to anyone in the antiques and fine arts industries over the past five decades,” said Julie Garrett VanDolen, an officer with J. Garrett Auctioneers. “The two artists, Loyd Taylor and Paxton Gremillion, brought unparalleled design and extraordinary furnishings to the exploding design mecca of Dallas and beyond.”
Loyd-Paxton created brilliantly imaginative environments of distinctive originality. Inspired by their multifaceted talents and dedication to art, the iconic duo designed memorable and timeless environments. Items in the auction not to be missed include monumental carved jade towers, rare cloisonné and never-before-seen relics brought over as the Chinese cultural revolution began.
The ever in-demand Loyd Taylor will continue to focus on his design clientele, while J. Garrett Auctioneers has the pleasure of auctioning the Loyd-Paxton Collection. The auction will be full of bold color and rare treasures -- the epitome of glitz and style Loyd-Paxton is famous for and which they incorporated into every interior. The collection is the sale’s undisputed headliner.
But there are other fine items to consider as well. The collection of David Webb jewelry will be complemented by pieces from other makers such as Patek Philippe, Cartier, Seaman Schepps, Van Cleef & Arpels, Verdura and Bvlgari. Other highlights include a fine Columbian emerald ring, a multi-color diamond cuff, Mikimoto pearls and a vintage coral and diamond necklace.
J. Garrett will also offer rare Hermes Kelly bags, an exceptional set of Louis Vuitton luggage in red Epi leather, vintage Chanel and many other couture pieces from a private Texas collection. A private collection of 18th and 19th century antiques and art will also be sold, including fabulous Baccarat, Old Sheffield silver, Royal Academy oil paintings and finely cast bronze chandeliers.
The David Webb jewelry will be spread across both auction days, with items that include a gold and diamond link necklace featuring 5-6 carats of diamonds totaling 248.3 grams (est. $25,000-$30,000); a companion to that, a pair of gold and diamond ear clips (est. $4,000-$5,000); and a rare and brilliant enamel and ruby double fish brooch in the original box (est. $12,000-$20,000).
Bvlgari jewelry will be headlined by a platinum diamond necklace boasting 12 carats of brilliant cut diamonds (E-F color, V-S clarity) with an 18kt white gold clasp (est. $25,000-$26,000); and an 18kt diamond and pearl Celtaura bracelet inspired by the jewels of the ancient Celts, having 10 carats of diamonds and 9 8.5mm white pearls (est. $32,000-$35,000). Both lots are in Day 1.
