Auction house Paddle8 will continue their original Gentleman’s Accessories sale, curated by the acclaimed antiques buyer Alan Bedwell, who hand-picks rare luxury items for the Bergdorf Goodman and Ralph Lauren.
Paddle8 launches its third themed auction. The sale is a nod to the year ahead on Paddle8, with works offered from the categories of contemporary art, photography, neo-pop, post-war editions, and works by today’s leading Indian and Chinese artists. The auction is a collaboration with the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), to which Paddle8 will donate a share of its commissions from sales. Paddle8 will also use the money to upgrade its engineering team. In particular, a release stated that the money raised will go toward improving the bidding functionality on its site. Citing steady increases in Internet traffic and bidding, the release explained that Paddle8 will now turn its attention to the site’s mobile version.
Below are some of the items in the sale, which ends at the end of October:
