The JoHN NELSON COLLECTION, PART IV | 1


J

John Nelson

ohn Nelson was born in Seattle, Washington, in 1937, into a first-generation Greek family. He was the youngest of eight boys with one younger sister. John’s father died when he was six-months-old leaving his mother, who barely spoke English, to raise nine children. In his youth, John worked several jobs to help the family. He was a newspaper boy, elevator operator, and even grocery delivery boy at times. He eventually attended Menlo College in Atherton, California, to study art history. While a student at Menlo College, John went with classmates on a trip to Europe. This would begin a lifetime of travel and art appreciation that saw him return to Europe over seventy times in the following sixty-five years. Soon after his trip to Europe, John decided to strike out for Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, he worked as a bartender and a busboy before he started working for a used furniture store. During the same period, he met Robert Rounds and the two remained together as business partners and life partners for fifty years and five days until Robert’s death in 2007. John and Robert would drive to yard sales on the weekends, buy old furniture which Robert would restore, and then sell it on the side yard of the used furniture store at which John was working. They saved the proceeds from these sales until they had enough money to travel to Paris and begin buying antiques. In 1965, with a $5,000 loan from Bank of America, John and Robert started John Nelson Antiques. From its modest beginnings in the side yard of a used furniture store, John Nelson Antiques grew beyond their wildest imagination. For forty-five years, the duo traveled the globe buying antiques for the store and for their homes. The magical blend of business and pleasure gave them a life full of riches but more importantly full of friends and tales from around the world. Whether it was dinner parties in London with Princess Margaret or drinking with the waiters after hours at Café de Flore in Paris, John and Robert had a flair for enjoying life. John always stressed to his family “keep your eyes open and observe the world. There is so much to see, never stop looking”. John Nelson died on June 14, 2021.

2 | ANDReW JoNeS AUCTIoNS


I first met John and Robert in 2003, when I had been tasked with reopening the Furniture and Decorative Arts department for Bonhams and Butterfields in Los Angeles. My initial undertaking was to introduce myself to the army of antique dealers in Los Angeles. I received a cool reception at the first store I visited. Polite but cool. Next door was John Nelson Antiques. I braced for a similar welcome when I introduced myself to John Nelson and Robert Rounds but was pleasantly surprised with an enthusiastic greeting followed by a chat about the future and then they asked me ‘who do you know in Los Angeles?’ Just your neighbor and yourselves was the answer. ‘Well come on then’ John said as he gestured out the door. John and Robert proceeded to walk me up and down Melrose Place and Melrose Avenue introducing me, like an old mate, to the dealers at the heart of the antiques area of the city. That kindness was the start of a long friendship, which brings us to the sixth of several auctions, an event that I had hoped would not happen for many more years. The series of sales will be a tribute to John’s unerring eye for quality and whimsey. The final auction will be the private collection from his home overlooking the Pacific ocean. I will miss John in many ways, his wicked sense of humor, his straightforward approach to life and his humbleness. It will not be the same, when standing on the rostrum, without him sitting at the back of the auction room, back to the wall, bidding so passionately with obvious joy in battling it out with other bidders and seeing the twinkle in his eye when he won.
