An Important Private Collection of Art Deco Masterpieces is led by a pair of ‘Col de Cyne’ sconces by Armand Albert Rateau, an exceptionally rare and fine example never before seen at auction. Masterworks of 20th Century Decorative Art: An Important New York Private Collection showcases great designers from the 1920s and 1930s, including works by Armand Albert Rateau, Jean Dunand and Pierre Chareau.
