"There is always a special flare when it comes to putting together a specialty auction," said Bruneau & Co. president Kevin Bruneau. "Modern and contemporary design is a hot category that brings a bunch of funky stuff to the market. It will be great to see what the Wendel Castle box hammers for."

The Wendell Castle box in question is a carved wood jewelry or storage box with a curvaceous biomorphic lid. The box is incised 'WC' and dated "72" on the right side. It measures 9 ¾ inches by 14 ¼ inches and has a pre-sale estimate of $2,500-$4,000. Wendell Castle (Kan./N.Y., 1932-2018) is considered the father of the art furniture movement. His pieces are highly collectible.

Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer, predicted the auction "is sure to bring Modern collectors out of the woodwork, not just in Rhode Island but beyond," adding, "From being able to offer a Walter Dorwin Teague sled radio and a two-piece Vladimir Kagan sofa and ottoman is an exciting opportunity. It makes auctioneering the sale that much more enjoyable."
