Keith Haring's unique pop art emerged from the New York City graffiti subculture of the 1980s. His popularity grew from his spontaneous drawings in Manhattan subways – chalk outlines of figures, dogs, and other stylized images on blank black advertising spaces. The untitled acrylic on paper from 1987, signed, 12 ½ inches by 8 ½ inches, is expected to sell for $6,000-$9,000.

George Louis Viavant was a Louisiana artist who was inspired by the bayous, marshes and lagoons of Southern Louisiana. He painted the birds, fish, and small game that he knew from hunting on the family land outside New Orleans. His watercolor on paper in the auction, titled Nature Morte: Crawfish, measuring 13 ½ inches by 7 ¾ inches, should realize $4,000-$8,000.

The 89-piece set of Herend porcelain dinnerware in the "Rothschild Bird" pattern is estimated to reach $3,000-$5,000. The Herend Porcelain Manufactory was founded in Hungary in 1826. It specialized in luxury hand-painted and gilded porcelain and was purveyor to the Hapsburg Dynasty and aristocratic customers across Europe. Many of its patterns are still in production.
