1042: Beautiful Reproduction Remington Cartridge Board
Measuring approximately 53 inches by 37 inches, including the frame, this beautiful reproduction Remington cartridge board is done by Artist Robert Auth in acrylic paint with the cartridges attached to pressed cardboard. The board is framed with a massive 3 3/4 inch deep wooden frame with gold painted outer edges. The board contains approximately 140 Remington rimfire and center fire cartridges. The cartridges are mostly original with some modern replacements to complete the representative calibers. The background is painted light green and the center features a beautiful painted scene in a diamond. The very top reads "TRADE U MARK" with "CENTER FIRE CARTRIDGES/REMINGTON" over the scene and "BRIDGEPORT. CONN. U.S.A." at the bottom (see illustration). This cartridge board is one of two in this auction and each is an individual work of art and the center painting depicts a hunt in which Robert participated in during his time in Idaho. Accompanying this lot is a copy of the book "Francie's Camera, The Art and Stories of Robert Auth". The book details Robert Auth's life through words and pictures, and illustrates much of his work, including this cartridge board.
