Sotheby's 20th Century Design

It's a beautiful Tuesday here! How about where you are? Tomorrow in New York, Sotheby's will hold a 20th Century Design auction. There are many iconic pieces, but I just chose a few as my favorites. I absolutely love these claret jugs... this little lamp...and this early sofa by Edward Wormley... The claret jugs, of sterling silver, glass and ebony, were created in 1893 by Christopher Dresser. The lamp is by Olga Lee circa 1952 and the Wormley by Dunbar sofa is circa 1948. See more beauties at Sotheby's, and have a great day!
