Copeland jewelry box tops Arts and Crafts treasures at California Historical Design March 23-24

Silver and enamel box by Elizabeth Copeland, estimated at $15,000-$20,000 at California Historical Design.

ALAMEDA, Calif. – A fine example of the work of the Boston Arts and Crafts enameler Elizabeth Ethel Copeland (1866-1957) leads the lineup at California Historical Design this month. The hand-hammered silver and enamel jewelry box carries an estimate of $15,000-$20,000 as part of the Saturday, March 23 and Sunday, March 24 sale titled Stickley Arts and Crafts Auction. The catalog is now open for bidding on LiveAuctioneers.

Simply signed with the raised initials EC and dated to circa 1905, this 4.5-by-3.5in casket is a relatively early example from the prime period when Copeland was first exhibiting. Famously, she had hidden away her artistic ambitions for years while working at her family’s dairy farm, but in 1901, at the age of 35, attracted the patronage of the Arts and Crafts artist and benefactor Sarah Choate Sears. In 1906 Irene Sargent, writing in The Keystone, had commented: “The traditional figure of the enamelist is masculine. Miss Copeland working at her furnace possesses attractions quite other than those belonging to the woman who paints a portrait or who illustrates a book.” Her signature technique, which created an enamel surface resembling cabochon gemstone, is seen to good effect on this well-preserved box.

Some choice examples of American Arts and Crafts furniture on offer include a Gustav Stickley roll-top desk that descended in the same Milwaukee family for four generations. Originally selling for $115 in 1904, this model, number 713, was one of the most expensive in the Gustav Stickley catalog. This furnishing, with an ‘excellent original finish’, is estimated at $8,000-$12,000.

Also dated circa 1905 is a Roycroft Double Morris chair, estimated at $15,000-$20,000. Again, retaining an ‘excellent original finish’ according to the lot notes, this chair was formerly in the collection of Christopher ‘Kip’ Forbes and last sold at Rago in October 2012.

The staying power of Stickley furniture is virtually unmatched

ALAMEDA, Calif. — Fine furniture from the Stickley family of craftsmen are the featured category in California Historical Design’s Arts & Crafts auction scheduled for Saturday, December 9. The catalog is now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

The five Stickley brothers — Gustav, Leopold, John George, Albert, and Charles — were stars of the early 20th-century American Arts & Crafts movement. Launched by Gustav (1858-1942) in 1900, Stickley hand-crafted some of the most iconic designs of the period, highlighted by his famous Mission style and brother Leopold’s Cherry Valley designs via his own brand, L. & J. G. Stickley.

The sale includes 57 Stickley lots, led by an early 1902 Gustav Stickley oak and hammered copper bridal chest. Completely original and still bearing the red Stickley decal, the chest is estimated at $15,000-$20,000.

Bernard Maybeck (1962-1957) was a Berkeley, California native, architect and furniture designer who left a similarly large legacy to the Arts & Crafts movement. The sale includes three Maybeck items by his own hand, plus two additional items from homes he designed. A love seat, settee and a hand-carved table are all estimated at $25,000-$35,000 each.

Begun as therapy for sanitarium patients, Marblehead Pottery grew to become a production-based earthenware company focused on hand-decorated items. This floral-motif vase dating to circa 1910 is from early in the company’s history and is described as being in “perfect condition.” It is estimated at $2,500-$3,500.

CHICAGO — Back-to-back same-day sales are scheduled for Hindman on Tuesday, November 14. The day begins with Modern Design at 11 AM Eastern time, showcasing 250 curated lots from top names across the world of design. Following at 4 PM Eastern time is Early 20th Century Design, which boasts names such as Tiffany Studios, Handel, and Gustav Stickley. Both catalogs are now available for bidding at LiveAuctioneers (Morning, Afternoon).

Hans J. Wegner (1914-2007) was a leader in mid-century Danish design, bringing the clean and often austere look into homes worldwide. The morning session has seven Wegner lots, topped by the iconic Papa Bear lounge chair and ottoman. Also known as the AP Stolen model no. AP-19, the duo features classic teak with fine upholstery and carries an estimate of $8,000-$12,000.

Famed glass studio artist Jon Kuhn (b. 1949-) is also well represented by six lots. Kuhn’s cut-glass approach is designed to accept and then redirect inbound light back to the viewer in unexpected and remarkable ways. His 1995 work Cubed to the 7th features seven art-glass cubes encased into a larger rectangular glass enclosure, producing his trademark lighting effects. The lot is estimated at $15,000-$20,000.

The morning’s top lot is a circa-1965 mirror by Line Vautrin (1913-1997), the famed metalworker whose jewelry and decor items are highly treasured by collectors and designers alike. The lot is sold with a certificate of authenticity issued by the Comite Line Vautrin, and is estimated at $50,000-$70,000.

The afternoon session includes a small selection of Tiffany Studios items, dominated by a magnificent stained leaded glass window Musician in the Cove. Dating to circa 1890, the window features a woman playing a stringed instrument with a view of the shore behind her shoulders. The 73.5 by 44in piece is estimated at $15,000-$30,000.

Stickley furniture and lighting collectors will find plenty of opportunities as well. A sideboard by Gustav Stickley (1858-1942) known as #901 Eastwood, NY is made of fumed oak with iron hardware. Measuring 39.5 by 50 by 23in, it carries an estimate of $8,000-$12,000.

Noted industrial designer Walter Dorwin Teague (1883-1960) is remembered for helping create the concept of industrial design, along with other luminaries such as Raymond Loewy and Henry Dreyfus. His groundbreaking designs for Kodak; Texaco; the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad; and Steuben / Corning Glass are among his career highlights. This set of Embassy glasses for competitor Libbey Glass totals 18, along with two related glasses. The lot is estimated at $3,000-$5,000.
