BOSTON, MA – Following Doyle's successful Inaugural Boston Auction, our second auction, Boston Collects on September 29, 2023, saw competitive bidding and strong results. Held in Doyle's Boston gallery and livestreamed on Doyle.com, the Boston Collects auction featured a wide range of artwork, furniture, Americana, silver, decorative arts and jewelry from collections and estates in the New England area and beyond.
Featured in the sale was Property from the Private Collection of Sylvia Napier. A Massachusetts native, Sylvia lived her life abroad, traveling the world as a collector and antiques dealer. Sylvia owned a beautifully eclectic and world-renowned antiques shop on Kings Road in London that showcased art and antiques from Asia and Europe. Sylvia kept many beloved items in her personal collection, which then travelled to her grand 17th century home in Arles, France and ultimately her historic 1770s house in Weston, Massachusetts. Her collection was assembled with care, love and a discerning eye.
