The Molar Series

Submitted by Lois Sumberg, Gallery Council member

Molar Series by Wendell Castle

Molar Series by Wendell Castle

I’m always astounded by the variety of really, really nice stuff people give us every year for the Art & Treasures Sale. And this year is no exception. Names like Limoges, Lalique, Lenox and even, yes even, Wendell Castle. Some generous donor gave us a white Molar Chair and Cloud Table designed by this famous Rochester icon. Click here to watch “Antiques Road Show” episode with Castle pieces (and also note the updated appraisal value)!

I often wonder why people give us what they give us, but I’ve come to the conclusion they no longer view the items they donate as treasures and are willing to part with them.* So much the better for the people who come to the Art & Treasures Sale! Here’s a small sampling of what will be for sale.

Jade carvings: Asian jade and stone carvings
