With a robust pre-sale estimate of $100,000-$120,000, the collection of Tiffany Studios panels is easily the expected top lot of the auction. The lot consists of six mosaic glass zodiac panels from the Marshall Field & Company Men's Grill, depicting Aquarius, Libra, Leo, Cancer and two Capricorns; and a grouping of loose favrile glass mosaic tiles, also from Tiffany Studios.

The oil on canvas by Lê Phổ, titled Les Soucia, is artist signed lower right and measures 32 inches by 39 inches (sight). It has an estimate of $50,000-$70,000. Lê Phổ was born in Vietnam and studied at the Ecoles des Beaux-Arts in Paris under the instruction of Victor Tardieu, a friend and companion of Henri Matisse. Lê Phổ's works are highly prized by collectors.

Ruth Francken executed her famous Homme Chair in 1971 when she applied plaster directly to a male model (homme is French for "man"). The cast of his lap was smoothed and finished with lacquered polyurethane, then a base was fashioned from stainless steel tubing. A limited edition of the chair in various colors was sponsored and a black version will be featured in the sale with an estimate of $20,000-$30,000.
