The sale catalogue of the collection of American decorator Tony Duquette (1914-1999). Duquette's style was one of baroque fantasy and limitless imagination. He and his wife Elizabeth "Beegle" created the wonderland that is Dawnridge in Beverly Hills, as well as numerous other homes. The residences were filled with an eclectic mix of furniture and decorative objects purchased over the years or given to them by friends. The whole represents a distinct West Coast theatrical aesthetic. The sale catalogue includes 1679 lots as well as photographs of the Duquettes and their collection in situ.
