Locati publishes sales results, with strong performances from Asian Arts
Auction in Pineville, Penn.
PINEVILLE, PENN. – The sale of Locati was completed on January 16. Items from a wide variety of categories were offered, with particularly strong results for Asian arts, accounting for seven of the sale’s ten best-selling lots.
“Results for Asian Decorative Arts were strong,” said co-owner Michael Locati. “We experienced lively bidding on several outstanding Chinese cloisonne objects and were delighted to see two unusual silver gilt and jade handles more than triple their high estimate, ultimately selling for $3,500.
“We are excited to bring our services to Bucks County in a newly renovated 6,000 square foot building,” continued Locati, “and plan to expand our services to include a live-to-auction element in months to come…we hope to be a go-to destination for antiques in Bucks County.”
