Grand Colonial Home in Woburn is the site of our Precision Estate Sales next sale. The PES Crew has been working hard to value-price and stage the wonderful, eclectic collections and items throughout the home. The Homeowners have a done a fair bit of worldwide travel and have brought back great items from across the continents that they are now making available for this great sale.
As PES shoppers enter the home, they are met with a small, yet elegantly decorated foyer, featuring, just the beginning, of the eclectic art collection that can be found throughout the home. Here, we find a collection of Shan-Merry Seri lithographs, signed and numbered, displayed around a small seating area featuring a half-round scroll-leg hall table and two upholstered scroll chairs. On the table is a lovely ballerina sculpture setting just under a large gold leaf mirror.
The art collection, rather than room by room, let's feature some of the art right up front. There are several Alexander Chen pieces - South Beach, Manhattan Celebration, Central Park Winter & Times Square Parade (this writer's personal favorite). Another favorite is by Peter Max, from his Patriotic Series - Two Liberties Flag & Heart. This piece is surrounded by an entire walls cape featuring the following Titles/Artists. Serenity by Gary Benfield, Busy on the Grand Canal by Markovich, My Beloved by Harold Behrens, La Rousse et la Blonde & L'Interieur Ventien 3 Femmes by Mouly.
