Our appraiser cannot stop admiring two rare French bronzes: a style favored by appraisers and upper crust collectors. Contrast that with flamboyant Flapper-era beaded purses and a Borneo headhunter’s ceremonial shield decorated with human hair. We close with the poignant story behind a World War II medic’s jacket and an exquisite Persian rug.
