One of the more intriguing items up for bid is a rare, 18th century tiger maple drop-front desk on a stand, made in New England with a fitted country interior over one drawer over a separate base, with a simple apron and finely turned legs. It has a conservative estimate of $800-$1,200.

"The tiger maple desk on stand is a very interesting piece to me," said Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. auctioneer and the firm's Director of Pop Culture. "I would imagine it is not often seen in American furniture collecting. I can't wait to see where the hammer falls on this one."

An ornately carved, heavy life-sized bust of Maria Theresa (Austrian, 1717-1780), is of the only female ruler of the Habsburg dominions, ruling from 1740 until her death. The 27-inch-tall bust, atop a 39 ¼ inch three-piece marble and pudding stone pedestal, features cross jewelry, a dainty laced trimmed dress and curled hair adorned with a tiara. The lot should achieve $2,500-$4,000.
