Summer Smorgasbord At DuMouchelles

From Antiques and The Arts Weekly – August 12, 2022 – DETROIT, MICH. — On July 21-22, DuMouchelles hosted a two-day sale featuring fine and decorative art, antiques, furniture, estate jewelry, ceramics, art glass and crystal and more.

It was a veritable buffet for bidders, offering something for just about any collecting interest — everything from an important Benjamin Franklin signed document to whimsical sculpture.

For example, estimated just $300/500, Jane Poupelet’s (French, 1874-1932) bronze “Rabbit Crouching,” 3 by 41⁄4 inches, hopped to it, selling for $10,540 on the first day. Born in the Dordogne countryside, a set- ting that inspired her and had a great influence on her artistic work, Poupelet used to play out- side with clay and make sculptures of the people and animals around her, choosing to surround herself with rural animals, such as rabbits, chickens and donkeys, among others.
