Andrew Jones Auctions
Andrew Jones Auctions will burst into autumn with Part 1 in a series of auctions dedicated to the John Nelson collection on Sunday, October 24th. The string of sales for the John Nelson collection will be a celebration of the unerring eye of a more than 50-year Los Angeles design and antiques institution, the man behind the eponymous John Nelson Antiques. The collection features Chinese porcelain, paintings, French decorative arts, sculpture, antiquities, Grand Tour objects, European furniture, mirrors and chandeliers. “We are incredibly honored to have been entrusted with this incomparable collection,” said Andrew Jones, President and CEO of Andrew Jones Auctions. “John Nelson was not only a client, but a close personal friend for years.”
Mr. Jones said he’s very much familiar with the story behind the chase and acquisition of most of the pieces in Mr. Nelson’s collection. “I only wish the auction were not happening for many more years,” he said. “I will certainly miss John sitting at the back of the auction room on sale days, bidding passionately and enjoying the cut and thrust of battling it out with other bidders.” Internet bidding will be facilitated by AndrewJonesAuctions.com, Invaluable.com and LiveAuctioneers.com. Safe, physically distanced previews will be held by appointment only at the Andrew Jones Auctions gallery. Plans may change in accordance with Los Angeles County Department of health Covid-19 restrictions. Contact the gallery for details. The gallery is located at 2221 South Main Street in downtown Los Angeles. Absentee bids will also be accepted. To schedule a preview appointment, call (213) 748-8008.
