Treadway Auctions Returns to Cincinnati June 3rd

Dirk Van Erp table lamp, San Francisco, CA. Mica, copper, 18″h x 20″ dia., impressed mark. Estimate: $25,000 – $35,000

The first newly reorganized Treadway 20th Century Art & Design auction has been announced for June 3rd. Founded in 1977 by Don Treadway, the Treadway Gallery began their auction business in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1987 Treadway expanded into Chicago, teaming up with John Toomey, and continued to hold sales there through 2017. With the influence of the internet changing the need to be in a major metropolitan area, Don Treadway and his daughter Drew made the decision to return to holding their sales in Cincinnati for the first time in nearly two decades.

This upcoming sale features an exceptional collection of European Art Nouveau glass built over 30 years by a Los Angeles couple, including rare and early works by Emile Galle. A trio of original Joan Miro paintings should draw serious interest worldwide.  The paintings were liquidated by the Denver Art Museum in the mid-1950s, and consigned by the daughter of the original owner, along with a very unusual and rare Tiffany Paperweight lamp. In that area, this sale boasts a very fine selection of Tiffany lamps, glass, and rare Tiffany & Co. silver and mixed metal pieces.
