MT. CRAWFORD, Va. — Standout examples of 18th- and 19th-century glass, plus a two-day sale of Americana focused on Virginian and Southern antiques, are the featured categories at Jeffrey S. Evans & Associates Thursday, November 30, Friday, December 1 and Saturday, December 2. The catalogs are now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

Regarded as the only known examples, a pair of pillar-molded, quart-sized conical bar decanters are believed to be the product of Pittsburgh-based manufacturer Bakewell, Pears & Co. Its 1868 catalog contains illustrations resembling the pair, which was then an extremely difficult shape to produce. The lot is estimated at $3,000-$5,000.

From the same private New York glass collection comes this pair of loop / leaf vases in brilliant deep violet blue, also probably Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in origin, from the 1845-1860 period. Standing 9in in height and looking as good as the day they left the factory, the pair carries an estimate of $2,000-$4,000.

The Prior-Hamblin school of painting refers to brothers-in-law and portrait painters William Matthew Prior and Sturtevant Hamblin of Maine. Working in the mid-19th century, they collaborated in a portraiture business and had many admirers who closely mimicked their style, making individual attribution often impossible. These large-format portraits of a boy and girl feature three-quarter views of the children and are made extra-compelling by the lot’s inclusion of what appears to be the boy’s whip and the girl’s dress. Kept as a pair for more than 150 years, they are together estimated at $30,000-$50,000.

Two interesting examples of Americana round out the highlights. The sale includes a Kentucky delegation American Flag from the 1860 ‘Wigwam’ Republican Convention in Chicago — the political party’s first, where Abraham Lincoln was nominated. The lot notes contain a fascinating backstory on the flag’s discovery in 1974. It is estimated at $10,000-$15,000.

Probably from the shop of famed cigar store display carver Thomas V. Brooks (1828-1895) comes this circa-1870 American Indian chief. Standing 82in in height, with slightly restored coloring, the display has an estimate of $30,000-$50,000.
