Brooklyn Museum deaccessions choice antique furniture, sending it to Brunk March 20

ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Having been founded in 1823, the Brooklyn Museum has been receiving donations of art and furniture for more than 200 years. Museum officials have decided to part with 155 items from the collection, and have selected Brunk to conduct a sale on Wednesday, March 20. The complete catalog is now open for bidding at LiveAuctioneers.

One of the highlights is a Virginia Chippendale walnut fitted cellaret formerly owned by American furniture designer Luke Vincent Lockwood. Attributed to an unknown artisan in the Rappahannock River Valley, Virginia region in the 1750-1770 period, the cellaret’s interior can hold 20 bottles. It is estimated at $30,000-$40,000.

Another item donated to the museum by Lockwood is a Virginia Queen Anne scalloped walnut dressing table. Built between 1740 and 1770 in the Rappahannock River Basin, it is described as being in excellent overall condition, though the brasses appear to be early replacements. The table is also estimated at $30,000$40,000.

This William and Mary scrollwork and oyster veneered mirror is from circa-1700 England. The glass is ‘probably original,’ with the mirror plate exhibiting some losses to the silvering. As such, it carries an estimate of $2,000$3,000.

Originally purchased from John Hill Morgan of New York in 1915, a William and Mary daybed is probably Pennsylvanian and from the 18th century. It has contemporary upholstery in a ‘structurally sound’ frame and is affordably estimated at $800-$1,200.

Meissen Schneeballen vases lead our five auction highlights

Pair of Meissen Schneeballen Vases, $25,000

ROSEVILLE, Mich. – Meissen schneeballen vases modeled with snowballs of porcelain flowers and foliage were first created in the 1740s. However, most examples date from the mid-19th century, when the technique was revived.

The examples offered by Stefek’s Auctioneers on December 6 were typical revivalist pieces embellished with parrots and finches. Both single 2ft 2in (66cm) tall baluster-form vase and cover, estimated at $2,000-$4,000, and a pair of smaller 20in vases, estimated at $8,000-$12,000, had some of the condition issues to which these pieces are prone. Nonetheless, they generated plenty of bidding. The pair of smaller vases earned $20,000 ($25,000 with buyer’s premium), and the single large schneeballen vase realized $13,000 ($16,250 with buyer’s premium), respectively.

Harry Clarke, ‘The Colloquy of Monos and Una,’ $98,600

DUBLIN – The Colloquy of Monos and Una was one of a series of Art Deco-influenced watercolors created by Harry Clarke (1889-1931) for an expanded edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s collection of stories, Tales of Mystery and Imagination.

Clarke had provided some images to the London publisher George Harrap for a 1919 edition with black and white illustrations. However, the 1923 printing included many more illustrations, including eight color plates for which Clarke was paid a further £100 by Harrap.

The Colloquy of Monos and Una was conceived by Poe as a dialog between two lovers reunited after death (when he wrote it, his wife was suffering from the tuberculosis that would eventually kill her). Clarke chose to depict the protagonists floating together in the underworld in theatrical dress of the period.

In 1924, a year after the book was published, Harry Clarke sold several of the illustrations he created for Tales of Mystery and Imagination to the Crawford Art Gallery. This 16 by 12in (40 by 30cm) pencil, ink and watercolor was the best-contested work at Adam’s Auctioneers Important Irish Art sale on December 6. A detail was used on the front cover of the catalog.

Coming by descent to the vendor from the barrister Albert Ernest Wood (1873-1941), who lived at Marino, Killiney, Ireland, it was estimated at €20,000-€30,000 but hammered for €70,000 and sold for €91,000 ($98,600) with buyer’s premium.

19th-century Wooden Case Containing English Civil War Relics, $8,450

HARWICH, U.K. – This 19th-century glazed wooden case containing musket balls, ceramic fragments, and three complete clay pipes carries a raised plaque that is inscribed with the phrase ‘English Civil War Relics from the siege of Newark 1645-1646 found at the site of the camp of troops of the Earl of Lincoln nr. Clay Lane Newark’. It measures 2ft (60cm) across.

This collection of relics from the English Civil War appeared at TimeLine Auctions in Harwich, England on December 5, where it was eagerly contested, exceeding its £200-£300 estimate to hammer for £5,000 and sell for £6,750 ($8,450) with buyer’s premium. It was part of an old collection of antiquities and relics collected by the Gilstrap family, who were wine merchants in Newark, Nottinghamshire, England.

The Third Siege of Newark began on November 26, 1645. King Charles I’s army had been destroyed at the Battle of Naseby, and Newark was one of the last Royalist towns capable of resisting a Roundhead army of 17,000 soldiers. The siege lasted six months and inflicted great hardship before the king surrendered on May 6, 1646, followed by the surrender of Newark itself two days later.

MARLBOROUGH, Mass. – Though largely forgotten today, Lillie Langtry (1853-1929) was probably England’s first superstar, moving effortlessly from high society to the stage – unheard of in those days – and back, from fortune to fortune, and by all accounts, from affair to affair. Her colorful life likely gave rise to what would become the modern British tabloid industry, so enthralling was her beauty and so thrilling her escapades.

Coming from modest beginnings on Jersey, the self-governing British Crown Dependency off the northwest coast of France, Langtry would marry into money and exploit her remarkable good looks to escalate into high society, nightlife and elbow-rubbing with royalty. At the urging of her friend Oscar Wilde, she took to the stage, stunning her society compatriots, who were aghast at the prospect. But like most things in her life, Langtry excelled at acting and was an immediate hit, starring in all sorts of productions at a time when the stage was the pinnacle of acting.

There was big money to be made in America, so Langtry took her team on the road and performed extensively in the United States throughout the 1880s, a period generally considered to be the peak of her career. During her American sojourn, she somehow managed to get herself invited onto the presidential railcar (think Air Force One for the steam age) of President Chester A. Arthur, who had the good fortune of being vice president when President James Garfield met an assassin’s bullet at a Washington, D.C. train station.

This hand-painted panel from Arthur’s railcar was presented to Langtry by the president himselfno doubt smitten in the same way that the British public was with the actress. Langtry took the panel and mounted it in her own, opulent private railcar, the LaLee (Winnebago for flirt), which she used while touring in America. So heavy was the car that it often required two locomotives to negotiate steep uphill grades. Her use of the car is documented in a fascinating article from Cowgirl magazine.

The panel comes with the following inscription: Removed from the Locomotive (sic) Lalee / Transatlantic tour of / Miss Lillie Langtry 1887 / A Gift April 1887 from the / State Train of Chester Arthur / President of U.S. America. No provenance was given by Bonhams Skinner as it came to auction December 5, but it carried a modest $600-$800 estimate. Furious bidding sent the panel into orbit, landing at $11,000 ($14,080 with buyer’s premium).

Circa-1790 King’s Lynn glass beaker given to Captain George Vancouver, $3,650; and a Queen Anne heavy baluster wine glass, $12,750

MORETON-IN-MARSH, U.K. – Explorer and naval captain George Vancouver set sail from King’s Lynn, Norfolk, England in April 1791 aboard HMS Discovery to survey the Pacific Northwest coastline of North America. During his travels he circumnavigated the Canadian island now known as Vancouver Island, and later published his findings in the 1798 three-volume book Voyage of Discovery to the North Pacific Ocean.

This 5in (12cm) glass beaker was probably made in King’s Lynn as a souvenir of his embarkmentAlongside the central image of the three-masted Discovery, it is engraved with the legend ‘Captain George Vancouver, Fair Winds and God Speed.’ A rare survivor with obvious crossover collecting appeal, it hammered for £2,200 and sold for £2,900 ($3,650) with buyer’s premium against an estimate of £500-£800 at Kinghams Auctioneers on December 7.

It was a much earlier 18th-century drinking glass which, against the same estimate, hammered for £7,500 and sold for $10,125 ($12,750) with buyer’s premium at the Kinghams sale. It was one of the Queen Anne heavy baluster wine glasses that are so admired by collectors. The example in the auction was a particularly pleasing form with a single air drop to the bowl and an egg-shaped tear to the stem. It sold to an online buyer using thesaleroom.com.

ASHEVILLE, N.C. – A tale of two exceptional pairs of 18th-century chairs – one made in London, the other in Philadelphia – played out at Brunk Auctions on November 16, November 17 and November 18. Both pairs made six-figure sums on the second and third days of the North Carolina sale.

A pair of George III giltwood open armchairs were being deaccessioned from ‘an important Southern institution’ with an earlier provenance to the collection of Edwin Herzog of New York and Charleston. Inspired by patterns for ‘French easy chairs’ in Thomas Chippendale’s Gentleman and Cabinet Makers Director, the design is one associated with the architect James ‘Athenian’ Stuart (1713-1788) and attributed to the fashionable London cabinetmakers John Gordon and John Tait.

Similar Stuart-Gordon chairs with palmette medallion carvings were made for John Spencer, 1st Earl Spencer (1734-1783) at Spencer House in Westminster. When the current earl Charles Spencer sold some of the furnishings from the house at Christie’s in London in 2010, pairs of chairs from two suites dated circa 1758-1765 were offered — those in the exotic West Indian hardwood sabicu and others with a white-painted and parcel-gilt finish ‘in the French manner.’

The pair at Brunk were probably from a set from Nuneham Park in Oxfordshire, commissioned by the British diplomat and general Simon Harcourt (1714-1777), 1st Earl Harcourt. He held close ties to the Spencer family. According to the auction house, they were in a fine state of overall preservation and retained most of their original gilt surface. Estimated at $30,000-$50,000, they hammered for $120,000 ($153,600 with buyer’s premium). The eight armchairs in the Christie’s Spencer House sale were sold in pairs for sums between £145,250 (about $181,450) for those in giltwood up to £802,850 (roughly $1 million) for a pair in sabicu.

On November 18, a pair of Philadelphian Queen Anne walnut ‘compass seat’ side chairs hammered for $220,000 ($281,600 with buyer’s premium) against an estimate of $40,000-$60,000.

Made circa-1740-1760 to a sophisticated design that includes shell carving to the backs and the legs, the two were from a set of at least nine chairs probably made for Dr. Thomas Graeme (1688-1772). A well-to-do Scotsman from Balgowan in Perthshire, he rose to prominence as port physician of Philadelphia during the period when overcrowded boats of German migrants were arriving in the city. The large estate he purchased in Horsham, Pennsylvania became Graeme Park.

For almost a century after his death, the set of chairs remained intact at Graeme Park. However, they became separated in 1865. One of these two chairs – the example with early and probably original needlework upholstery – remained in the family until it was first sold at Sotheby’s in 1983. It was most recently sold at Christie’s New York in September 2013, when it hammered for $40,000.

It was only reunited with its mate (later covered in pink silk) in January 2017 when the owner bought another chair, also at Christie’s, for $50,000. This one shared the same early history, but had left Pennsylvania for New York in the late 19th century. In total, four chairs from the set are now accounted for, with another in the collection at Colonial Williamsburg.

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO – On Saturday, October 21, Turner Auctions + Appraisals will present two sales in succession. The Estate of Marian Hymel, featuring in excess of 150 lots, will commence at 1:30 pm Eastern time, and the Reed Applegate Collection, with more than 120 lots, will begin at 5:30 pm Eastern time. Absentee and Internet live bidding for both will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

Born and raised in New York, Marian Hymel (1932-2023) ultimately relocated to Los Gatos, California, where, during the course of three decades, she became a respected dealer in Early American antiques. Standouts from her personal collection include a charming American School portrait of a young child holding a flower and an apple, which has an estimate of $1,200-$1,800.

Antique furniture highlights include a Queen Anne carved maple flat-top high chest, made in Connecticut in the third quarter of the 18th century, which carries an estimate of $2,000-$3,000; and a late 18th-century Chippendale mahogany inlaid oxbow-front desk attributed to Ebner Toppen of Newburyport, Massachusetts. Its estimate is $1,500-$2,500.

The collection of lifelong Californian Reed Applegate (1943-2022) is the product of six decades of effort. Initially a graphic designer as well as an artist, he was able to devote himself to collecting full-time relatively early in his life. He lasered in on contemporary art by Northern Californians, and had a clear penchant for the work of David Gilhooly (1943-2013) – of the more than 120 lots on offer, no fewer than 60 are credited to him. Leading that group is Tall Burger, a 1988 painted bronze standing two feet high, with a cheerful-looking green frog perching atop the stack. Its estimate is $5,000-$7,000.

Earning the highest estimate overall is a colorful untitled 1998 acrylic on paper by Roland Petersen (b. 1926-) that shows two women, both in swimming attire, happily ensconced in their own worlds and not deigning to look at the viewer. The Petersen piece has an estimate of $10,000-$15,000.

Radiating an undeniably Californian sensibility is Untitled: Palm Tree / Glass, an acrylic on paper by Paul Wonner (1920-2008) that has an estimate of $6,000-$8,000. Stark and simple, it depicts a single slim palm tree silhouetted against a pink sky.

SUDBURY, Mass. – The so-called “Four Indian Kings” were not the first native Americans to visit to Great Britain. However, their well-chronicled journey to London in 1710 did produce the earliest known surviving portraits from life of the native people of North America.

As part of a diplomatic visit organized by Pieter Schuyler, the mayor of Albany, to court support against the French, the delegation had travelled from New York to seek an audience with Queen Anne. Accompanied by British army officers were three Mohawk chiefs from the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) alliance and one Mohican from the Algonquin nations. They were received in London as diplomats and were transported through the streets of the city to St. James Palace in Royal carriages.

To commemorate the visit, Queen Anne commissioned John Verelst (1648-1734), a Dutch artist residing in London, to create official portraits. Such was the interest of the European public, his images, now in the Public Archives of Canada, were soon engraved and sold as prints.

The three Mohawk were: Ho Nee Yeath Taw No Row of the Wolf Clan, called King of Canajoharie; Tee Yee Ho Ga Row (King Hendrick); and Sa Ga Yeath Qua Pieth Tow of the Bear Clan (Peter Brant). The Mohican chief was Etow Oh Koam of the Turtle Clan who was mistakenly identified in his portrait as Emperor of the Six Nations.

Sa Ga Yeath Qua Pieth Tow and Tee Yee Neen Ho Ga Row were the subjects of two mezzotints offered for sale by Tremont Auctions on August 6 as part of the dispersal of items from the library of Winfield Robbins (1841-1910) of Arlington, Massachusetts.

The earlier of the two images, measuring 8.5 by 6in and dated circa 1710, is from a set of four bust portraits produced in the Amsterdam workshop of the German-born publisher Peter Schenk the Elder (1660-1711). The full title reads Coning vande Maquas alias Coning Brant. The sitter, shown with his distinctive chest tattoos, died soon after he returned from London. He was the grandfather of the 18th-century Mohawk leader Joseph Brant.

Other impressions of this print survive in the Royal Collection Trust and other important institutional collections. Estimated at $2,000-$3,000, it sold at $16,000 ($20,320 including buyer’s premium).

The mezzotint entitled Tee Yee Neen Ho Ga Row is from the set of full-length images of the Four Indian Kings by the Anglo-French engraver Jean Simon. Entitled Tee Yee Ho Ga Row Emperour of the Six Nations, it shows the Mohawk leader in European attire carrying a beaded wampum belt. Considered a third state of this engraving, printed circa 1755, it too was estimated at $2,000-$3,000 and sold at $12,000 ($15,240 with buyer’s premium).

Both prints were previously part of the library amassed by Robbins. During his travels to Europe, Robbins collected some 150,000 prints, most depicting now-forgotten European aristocrats, which he later left to his hometown. After recent approval was given to deaccession, selections from this extensive collection will be offered by Tremont Auctions in upcoming sales.

CINCINNATI – A striking selection of 18th- and 19th-century silver and furniture achieved exceptional prices during the March 30th American Furniture, Folk & Decorative Arts auction at Hindman.
