About the Auction

Our winter auction offers an enchanting inventory of artwork, antiques, and Americana to dazzle the eyes and warm the spirit of worldwide collectors and prospective buyers. As always, we have gathered these items from estates and collections throughout the Northeast.

On Friday, we will offer a large selection of American antiques and folk art, including paintings by outsider artist Bill Traylor, outstanding portraits by 18th and 19th c. itinerant artists, early painted and country furniture, weathervanes, theorems, hooked rugs, treenware, pewter, samplers, mocha ware, stoneware, baskets and Shaker made items.

On Saturday, notable paintings by Pietro Longhi, James Buttersworth, Thomas Moran, Friedrich Nerly II, Robert Gifford, Eugene Boudin, Edward Nichols, and Charles Webster Hawthorne lead the fine art category that also includes an Italian micro-mosaic portrait from the Vatican Studio. For the historically minded, a unique, intricately crafted quilt of British and American patriotic symbols, likely made from Civil War era uniforms will be of interest as will a 1795 appointment signed by President George Washington. Furniture runs the gamut from a Chinese inlaid rosewood display table used at the 1933-34 Chicago World’s Fair - A Century of Progress International Exposition. to a circa 1800 cherry and pine tall clock by Nathan Hale (son of American Revolutionary War patriot Nathan Hale). A diverse marine selection includes ship paintings, ship models and an outstanding collection of early barometers. This day will also include selections of fine antique furniture, Chinese artifacts, tea caddies, early German glassware, oriental carpets and early silver.

Sunday we focus on 20th c. art and decorative items. Artists featured include Jessie Botke, Andy Warhol, Frederick Judd Waugh, Ralph Cahoon, Jr., Karl Buehr, James Fitzgerald, William Thon and Waldo Peirce; plus three modernist sculptures by Vasa. Furniture highlights include a dining table once owned by screen legend Marilyn Monroe, two Steinway pianos, and custom pieces by Thos. Moser, Nils Jonsson, and Mies Van Der Rohe. The pottery & glass category will offer pieces by the Martin Brothers, Thomas Bezanson, Doulton Lambeth, Picasso, Meissen, Daum Nancy, Herend and others. From the jewelry and watch group, there will be a 1.6 carat diamond and platinum ring and a men’s Rolex Submariner wristwatch. Additionally, we will present selections of British made carved historic figures, advertising items, estate silver, and Japanese artifacts.
