Only the best is what one can expect from the forthcoming holiday auction of Casa de Memoria, which is the 18th of this venerable house.
With 220 lots to be auctioned, the event will certainly bring in the collectors from the social set of Manila as well as the low-key billionaires who want to add something different to their treasures.
While the holiday auction is set for 9 November 2019, the preview has already started last 24 October and will last until 8 November at Palacio de Memoria. The collection features a diverse array of collectibles which can be Christmas gifts for loved ones if one does not decide to keep them for one’s personal pleasure and gratification.
This year-end auction will be like no other, According to Camille Lhuillier, general manager, ““The extensive offering for the season is perfect for those of you who are looking for that special gift for oneself, or for something unique. This is our first Christmas at the Palacio, and we are working to create a full pre-war experience as well as a series of activities that come with our Holiday auction.”
Miguel Rosales, CDM’s Head Curator, provides perspective for Living in the Present, Auction 18: “Manila has become extremely discerning in its choice for holiday giving. The Lhuillier family, which manages the house, is extremely pleased with an expansive offering for 2019. We have had a very good turnout for our Christmas auctions, with a wide range of lot prices that will have pieces for every home and style.”
Casa de Memoria is delighted to provide an eclectic selection appealing to the tastes and style preferences of buyers with its consigned collection. Highlighted is esteemed abstractionist Fernando Zobel y Montojo with a serigraph called “Orilla XV” (Lot 170), focusing on the Spanish river Jucar. Calling the series “Orilla” or shore, the work captures the river’s continuous flow in abstracted color.
