For the first time Harringtons will hold an auction at the 5th floor of Century City Mall on November 12, 2016, 2 p.m., Makati City. The highly anticipated Harringtons Lifestyle Auction billed as “Treasures of the Century” is simply a commercial event but to discerning buyers, bidders and avid collectors, it is a serious yet an artful business of bidding.
Harringtons Lifestyle Auction understands this sentiment and takes auctions to a whole new level by elevating it into an experience. The upcoming auction of antique furniture and art pieces is no exception. The auction features extensive collection of vintage sets of furniture and sophisticated artworks by acclaimed and prolific artists. The extensive collection of excellent, authentic and well-curated collectible pieces include works by national artists Abdul Imao, Napoleon Abueva and Victorio Edades as well as paintings by Benedicto Cabrera, Romulo Olazo and Jorge Pineda.
Highlights of Harringtons’ “Treasures of the Century” auction include over fifty remarkable and prized vintage items owned by avid collector and national hero Jose Rizal descendant Dina Velasco. A vintage “Escritoire” desk in solid tigerwood and teakwood will be among the items that will be auctioned off. Velasco, who collects precious collectibles as a hobby, knows and understands the beauty of auctions. “We enjoy the history behind each purchase. It’s great to be surrounded by things that go back centuries. I’m wonderfully amazed at the thought that most of these objects have travelled far and have been passed through generations before landing in my home. I think it’s terrific,” Velasco mused in an interview with Living Annual.
Other auction highlights include captivating art wood mosaic pieces by Bagac Wood Mosaic Artists, a group of people from Bagac, Bataan who used to be farmers. Despite dealing with the difficulties of poverty, the group opted to pursue art not only to make a living but also to make a name for their hometown. Another highlight of the upcoming Harringtons auction is artist Eduardo Castrillo’s intricately designed Crucifix. The 18”x29” delicately sculptured bronze Crucifix depicts the artist’s Christian.
