Carlo Bugatti (Italian,1856-1940). Orientalist ebonized wood hanging wall cabinet with elaborate inlaid decoration. The lower shelf rests on a stepped support and is flanked by four graceful columns with bone inlaid capitals, under a profusion of star-shaped decoration. Broad, graphic strips of inlaid copper break up the central decoration and lead the eye to the upper shelf, the edge of which is decorated with a pierced border over copper shields.

Provenance: From the Estate of Horst Rechelbacher, Osceola, Wisconsin.

Horst Rechelbacher, the founder of Aveda and Intelligent Nutrients, was a pioneer in the field of safe and eco-friendly cosmetics. The same curiosity that led him to explore ways to improve the beauty industry led him to travel the world, collecting rare and beautiful objects as he went. This sale features selections from that lifetime of eclectic and inspired collecting, including furniture by Carlo Bugatti, Gabriel Viardot, and Josef Hoffman; artworks by artists ranging from Old Masters to Salvador Dali to Arman; an impressive collection of Indian sculptures; and much more. Be sure to explore our timed-only online auction of other fascinating objects from this collection that will be posted in mid-August.
