SALE INFORMATION

Stair Galleries is delighted to offer property from the Estate of Paul F. Walter, Sag Harbor and New York City, on November 11, 2017 followed by an online auction on November 15, 2017. Walter was a legendary connoisseur, collecting in many fields including Southeast Asian and Indian works of art, Indian and English silver, textiles, the Aesthetic Movement and Contemporary Art. The collection represents Walter’s expansive taste and honed eye, combining simple, modern lines with ancient patinas, and delves deeply into the subjects of architecture, design and eastern philosophy.

Stair Galleries and Paul Walter formed a relationship over twenty-five years ago when Colin visited Walter in his New York City apartment and was intrigued by the eclectic collections of objects and art. In 2008, Stair was asked to sell over 500 lots of property from Walter’s country home on Ox Pasture Road in Southampton. The collections from Sag Harbor and the New York City apartment exemplify the interesting and full life that Walter led, and offer a view into the intellectual and aesthetic vision of a great collector.

All purchases are subject to a 22% buyer’s premium discounted to 20% for cash or check.
