A 1942 Harley-Davidson military motocycle is a very special highlight of June's Estate Auction. The limited production Harley 42XA (estimated at $20,000-25,000), was engineered to counter BMWs used by German forces in WWII. Also offered is a 1972 Stutz Blackhawk from the estate of Beverly Hills socialite Susan Whittaker. Made famous by Elvis Presley in 1970, the Blackhawk ($20,000-30,000) is a classic American luxury car. Another classic in the sale is the Sunbeam Tiger, a V8 sports car designed in part by Carroll Shelby of AC Cobra fame and assembled in the UK. Following the sale of these exciting vehicles, which will open the June auction, the spotlight is on fine jewelry. Precious gemstones set in platinum and gold, jade and coral, and many elegant timepieces will be sold. A luminous 62-carat star sapphire ring and an emerald-cut diamond of over 3 carats are among the many exceptional rings. Art Deco diamonds and romantic Victorian jewelry suites, pearls by Mikimoto and elegant black jade from Gump’s, ladies’ gold wristwatches, and collectible estate pocket watches are featured. Retro and contemporary designs are also in the assortment of fine bracelets, rings, brooches and necklaces. American artists featured in this auction include Chicago surrealist Gertrude Abercrombie and the singular contemporary Napa Valley painter, Ira Yeager. Jesus Rafael de Soto of Venezuela, and Mexican artist Jesus Reyes Ferreira (also known as Chucho Reyes) are among the international names in June’s Fine Art assortment, with works by European artists such as Gianni Pisani (born 1935) and Paul C.F. Jobert (1863-1942). Rosenthal china, Royal Danish silver, and Saint-Louis crystal will be offered. Diverse collectibles include stamps and coins, Native American artifacts, and a handcrafted Kiade “Riva” model boat. Ancient Cypriot pottery jugs, a Steinway grand piano, and furniture ranging from Directoire to Chinese rosewood are also in the June auction, alongside Chinese porcelains, snuff bottles and scroll paintings, and Japanese art and collectibles.
