Bond Street Auctions Auctioneer Adam Levinsohn to feature collection from cruise ship artist, jewelers at its 10th Annual Labor Day Estate Auction in Sarasota.
Online PR News – 30-June-2020 – Fort Lauderdale,Florida – Popular auction house, Bond Street Auctions, will feature exclusive collections from cruise ship artists and jewelers at its 10th Annual Labor Day Estate Auction, says its auctioneer, Adam Levinsohn.
Bond Street’s Labor Day Auction has become one of the most sought-after annual events in the auction world, attracting a global audience of high profile dealers, collectors, and other influential auction goers. The auction house is now planning for its 2020 event and will feature popular cruise ship art and jewelry that are in high demand among its high-net-worth clientele.
“Our annual Labor Day Estate Auction will be held at the Ritz Carlton in Sarasota this year. We are thrilled to announce that we have now started accepting consignments from cruise ship artists and jewelers for this high-profile event. And we are planning to choose 15 of these exquisite pieces to complement our premium collection of inventory that will be featured on the day,” remarked Levinsohn.
“Over the years, we’ve seen that these items are in high demand among our exclusive network of clients. Cruise ship artwork, for example, has been featured in our estate auctions many times, especially those by coveted artists like Peter Max, Isaac Tarkay, and Pino Daeni. We are highly experienced in selling these items. Therefore, we would like to invite these artists and jewelers to partner with us, so we can take their premium work to a high-net-worth audience who understands and appreciates them.”
With the unexpected onslaught of COVID-19, the cruise ship sector has been severely affected over the past few months. And earnings of artists, artisans, and designers who primarily depend on cruise ship auctions and galleries to sell their work have faced a sharp decline. Getting their work across to potential buyers has become a struggle, and this is expected to continue for a while as industries face a painfully slow recovery from the pandemic. This has led many of these professionals to seek new avenues to market their work.
“We understand the challenges faced by cruise ship artists and jewelers in these difficult times. So, we have started accepting consignments from them to help them quickly access our large network of dealers, collectors, and other noteworthy clients through our live and online auctions. Currently, we are accepting submissions through our Bond Street website—bondstreetauctions.com. Due to the high demand from our clients, we will soon launch a dedicated site—cruiseshipconsignment.com—to make things easier for these artists and designers,” said Levinson.
“We also invite private cruise ship art and jewelry collectors who would like to liquidate some of their collections. Right now we are getting a lot of inquiries from buyers of high-value merchandise that have been purchased from reputed cruise ship auctions such as those run by Park West. These are authentic and premium items that buyers are looking to liquidate due to various reasons now. So, we will be offering a free evaluation for cruise ship passengers that consign their items with us to auction. Promotions will run for the entire summer, so this is a great time to start the conversation,” Levinsohn explained.
