The Collectors' Passion-January 23, 2019

Our next auction focuses primarily on Americana and is timed to coincide with Americana Week in New York. This auction is sure to delight all collectors, dealers and institutions alike. The depth and breadth of the merchandise provides opportunities for bidders at a wide range of price points. The auction is led by the private collection of Dr. Andrew and Ziva Dahl. Highlights will include New England case furniture, such as a Chippendale mahogany slant-front desk attributed to John Townsend (Newport, RI, circa 1780-1790); a Chippendale cherrywood dressing table (Colchester, CT, circa 1760-1775). The auction will also include a selection of folk art from various prominent collectors, such as a late 19th or early 20th century miniature folk art chest of drawers, signed Hanson B. Young (PA), an early tabletop cigar store figure and a selection of chalkware and portraits. Property deaccessioned from the NAMITS Collection will include a strong selection of Self-Taught and Outsider art by artists such as Purvis Young, Harriet Wiseman, Sybil Gibson, Justin McCarthy and Jon Serl (whose 1966 oil on board is titled Stilts). The sale also features property from the Tuscaloosa, Alabama-based Westervelt Company. Items include an oil on canvas painting by E. L. Henry, titled Figures on Path, and a watercolor by Maurice Prendergast titled Central Park. Other artists represented include Charles Carl Wimar, George Luks, Charles Schreyvogel, and Leonard Baskin.
