The daughter of legendary woodworker George Nakashima, Mira has overseen the family’s storied New Hope, Pennsylvania furniture studio since her father’s death in 1990. From instantly recognizable chairs and coffee tables to more unusual table lamps, all of the works in Freeman’s April 4 sale represent the height of the Nakashima firm’s artistic achievement under Mira’s supervision—as well as Geoffrey Halaburt’s close relationship to Mira, with whom he worked throughout the design process. A connoisseur of design and craftsmanship, Halaburt’s personal collection reflects his impeccable taste.

Lot 288 in the April 18 Asian Arts sale features a pair of impressive Japanese six-fold "Tiger" screens by Okoku Konoshima (Japanese b.1877-d.1938). Painted in 1902, the year of the tiger, they are a twist on traditional Japanese screens. With the tigers painted boldly against a shimmering gold leaf ground, they show the influence of Western realism and abstraction.
