George III Giltwood Brackets in the Adams Taste at Michaan’s Auctions
Giltwood brackets make an elegant decorative
statement in period interiors. Estimated at $5,000 to $8,000, this pair of George
the Third giltwood brackets is one of several rare auction lots in the Neoclassical style
of Robert Adam. From a prominent family of architects and designers, Adam was a leading
tastemaker in 18th century England. A pair of grand oval mirrors, also after Robert Adam,
is another top highlight of the December 8 auction. Estimated at $30,000 to $50,000,
the mirrors are rare and amazing for their genre.
