New York - A colored aquatint engraving of "The City of Detroit," showing the subject as it appeared from the lake in 1837, brought $650 at the Kende Galleries, 730 Fifth Avenue, during the second session of a three day sale of art and furniture belonging to Mrs. J. Stuart White. The print went to a private collector. Another paid $325 for an imperial Russian silver and enamel bowl made by Chirnokoff, and K. Tanaka gave $175 for an imperial Chinese mutton-fat jar. A Swedish silver and enamel coffee service brought $150, also selling to a private buyer. Proceeds amounted to $6,533, making a total to date of $12,000.50.
