    William Mason Brown (American, 1828-

    1898)

    STILL LIFE WITH WATERMELON, FRUIT AND

    CALLA LILLIES

    Signed with conjoined initials lower left W M Brown

    Oil on canvas

    Unframed

    19 3/4 x 16 in.

    A letter from Dr. William H. Gerdts authenticating this

    work accompanies the lot.

    $20,000-40,000

    Provenance: Purchased in New York in the 1950s by a

    prominent theater entertainment family

    Thence by descent

    We are grateful to Dr. William H. Gerdts, Professor

    Emeritus of Art History, Graduate School of the City

    University of New York for preparing the following:

    I have examined the vertical painting of watermelon,

    grapes, and an apple, situated in a landscape, and

    signed WMBrown. This is the artists typical signature,

    but more, the painting is very much in Browns manner.

    Comparisons with other works by him--the manner in

    which he highlights both green and purple grapes; the

    larger watermelon with the roughened interior, though

    not with the deep cuts sometimes found in his work; the

    beautifully rendered apple; and not only the use of dir[t]

    and stony ground plane, but that particular formation of

    ground plane, is very typical of Brown and can be found

    in numerous other works painted by him which situated

    his fruit subjects in the out-of-doors. In my opinion this is

    a work by William Mason Brown.

    Cameleon Books, Chesterfi eld, Ma, Jan. 2011, p. 53-54,

    color illust. p. 54.

    Regarding the reluctant bride, Ms. Hoppin notes on

    page 53 of her book, The World of J. G. Brown

    Brown left the brides hesitation open to interpreta-

    tion. She could be pondering either the prospect of

    a loveless marriage or the loss of personal freedom,

    her expression made more poignant by her exquisite,

    and lavishly rendered bridal ensemble, with its rich

    sheen, transparent veil, and detailed fl oral headdress.

    A topical discussion in the news of the day reported a

    decline in marriages. ....The womens movement, with

    its press for rights equal to those of men was partly

    to blame.......Here Browns interior portrays a woman

    measuring many current issues of the day.

    Norman Rockwell (American, 1894-1978)

    A STUDY FOR MATERNITY WAITING ROOM

    Pastel, charcoal and pencil on paper

    14 x 36 in.

    $40,000-80,000

    This work appeared in a spread in the Saturday Evening Post, July 13, 1946

    Maternity Waiting Room fi rst appeared in the Saturday Evening Post in July 13, 1946.

    It has also appeared in Norman Rockwells America published by Readers Digest in the

    1970s. Over the years, this illustration has become the image most commonly associ-

    ated with a waiting room in the post World War II era that marks the beginning of

    the baby-boomer generation. It is no wonder that this illustration appeared on the

    cover of a highly acclaimed book that examines the history of the fathers role in

    child birthing: Make Room for Daddy: The Journey from Waiting Room to Birthing Room

    (2009).

    In the 1940s, Richard Swyers was an account manager at advertising agency Batten,

    Barton, Durstine & Osborn in New York City. His brother-in-law was Mead Schaeffer,

    a fellow illustrator at the Saturday Evening Post and good friend of Norman Rockwell.

    38

    Norman and Mead socialized at their homes in West Arlington, Vermont regularly

    and often talked shop. At one of these get-togethers, Norman mentioned to Mead

    that he would like to paint a maternity waiting room scene. Both illustrators used

    locals for models, but Norman wanted a more urban setting for his illustration and

    West Arlington did not have many local men dressed in suits at the time. At Meads

    suggestion, Norman called Richard Swyers to see if he could arrange for some

    employees from Batten, Barton, Durstine & Osborn to pose for the illustration.

    A date was set, and Norman travelled to New York City to visit the offi ces of Batten,

    Barton, Durstine & Osborn. Normans visit was announced in BBDOs newsletter, the

    Pink Sheet. When at BBDO, Norman walked with Richard from offi ce to offi ce and

    peered at the would-be models as they worked. If Norman thought the employee

    would be a good model, he was asked to pose. While there, Rockwell had the

    models pose and took many photographs; one of those models was Richard, who is

    nervously shredding a magazine in the fi nal work (far right).

    After the fi nal double page illustration appeared in the Saturday Evening Post, the

    drawing was given to Richard in appreciation for his efforts, and the drawing was left

    to his children upon his demise.

    Provenance: Gift from the artist to the grandfather of the present owner.

    Thence by descent

    Exhibitions: The work was recently publicly displayed for the fi rst time (November

    2009- May 2010) at the Norman Rockwell Museum as part of the travelling Behind

    the Camera show.

    Literature: Norman Rockwell, A Defi nitive Catalogue, Text and Catalogue by Laurie

    Norton, Moffatt, The Norman Rockwell Museum at Stockbridge, Stockbridge,

    Massachusetts, pp.794-795

    Rockwell was commissioned to do this work and enlisted men from Batten, Barton,

    Durstine & Osborn advertising agency in New York City to be his sitters.

    The sitters are: Ken Brown, Arthur Kammerman, Paul Metzger, Henry Klein, Warren

    Lynch, Harry Payne, Henry Miner, George McAndrew, Charles Kitt and Richard

    The Drake Family Carved and Painted Joined Chest with Drawer

    Attributed to the Deacon John Moore (1614-1677) Shop Tradition, Foliated Vine Group,

    Windsor, Connecticut, circa 1675-1690

    H. 31 in.; L. 50 in.; D. 20 in.

    $100,000-150,000

    This joined chest is a masterpiece and very rare survival of its form. With it extensively carved surface, oak lid, sides

    double paneled over a single panel, back fi nished with three panels and fi nished molding on all four sides, it is the most

    elaborate and fully developed Connecticut River Valley three-panel chest known. It has survived in remarkable condi-

    tion, retaining its original surface and much of its original painted decoration.

    This chest was possibly originally owned by John (1622-1688) and Hannah (Moore) Drake (1633-1686), of Windsor

    (later Simsbury), Connecticut. It might also have been a wedding gift for their son, Enoch Drake (1655-1698), who

    married Sarah Porter (1655-1730) on November 11, 1680. This chest descended to Enoch and Sarah Drakes son,

    Enoch (1683-1776) and his wife Elizabeth (1685-1717) and next to their daughter, Elizabeth (1707-1802), who mar-

    ried John Gillett (1707-1808). It continued through successive generations of the Gillett, Ward and Riddle branches of

    their family directly to the current owners.

    Although John Drake was himself a woodworker from the Drake family tradition in Windsor, this chest is believed to

    be the work of Hannah (Moore) Drakes brother, Deacon John Moore (1614-1677), a pioneer and settler of Windsor

    who established a multi-generational family woodworking tradition. In 1630, he emigrated from England with his

    father Thomas Moore (1584-1645), along with three puritan ministers -- the Reverends John White, John Warham

    and John Maverick and other congregants to establish a religious community in Dorchester, Massachusetts. In 1635,

    they relocated their community to land north of Hartford on the banks of the Connecticut River, which they named

    Windsor, after Windsor, Berkshire, England. Deacon Moore was very active in Windsor, serving as Deacon of the First

    Congregational Church as well as selectman from 1653 to 1674. He was also responsible for building the school house

    and the meeting house, among other town contracts, for which he was paid in land grants. He secured land on the

    West side of Windsor (now Simsbury), for his sister Hannah and brother-in-law John Drake.

    This chest is part of Deacon Moores foliated vine group, so named for the distinctive ornamentation consisting of

    symmetrical patterns of fl oral motifs and vines. Approximately 30 boxes are known that stem from this group as well

    as a table at the Connecticut Historical Society and two joined chests. One of the aforementioned chests in a private

    collection displays a four panel front. The other example in the collection of Old Sturbridge Village from the Moore

    shop was possibly made by Nathaniel Gaylord (1656-1720), who was trained in the craft tradition. The present chest

    and the Old Sturbridge Village example are very similar in their three paneled form and foliate ornamentation, although

    this one is more elaborately carved and paneled in addition to being fi nished on the back. For additional information

    on Deacon John Moore and his work, see Joshua W. Lane and Donald P. White III, Fashioning Furniture and Framing

    Luke Beckerdite, pp. 178-188.

    Provenance:

    Originally owned by John (1622-1688) and Hannah (Moore) Drake (1633-1686) or by their son, Enoch Drake (1655-

    1698), who married Sarah Porter (1655-1730) on November 11, 1680

    To Enoch and Sarahs son, Enoch Drake (1683-1676), who married Elizabeth Barber (1685-1717)

    To their daughter, Elizabeth Drake (1707-1802), who married John Gillett (1707-1800)

    To their son, Jabez Gillett (1738-1818), who married Anne Loomis (1741-1795)

    To their son, Horace Gillett (1779-1868), who married Rachel Austin (1781-1849)

    To their son, Horace Cornelius Gillett (1806-1876), who married Sarah Ann Watson (1814-1879)

    To their daughter, Ellen Caroline Gillett (1842-1920), who married Lorenzo Ward (1826-1890)

    To their daughter, Edith Clara Ward (1875-1958), who married Joseph Bingham Riddle (1862-1964)

    Thence by descent in the family to the current owners.

    Fancy-Painted and Gilt Card Table

    Attributed to Thomas Seymour (1771-1848), the decoration attributed to the school of

    John Ritto Penniman (1782-1841), probably executed by Joshua Holden (1781-1852)

    Boston, Massachusetts, 1808-1812

    H. 30 5/8 in.; W. 35 7/8 in.; D. 17 3/8 in. (closed)

    $50,000-100,000

    Literature: Mussey, Robert and Christopher Shelton, John Penniman and the Ornamental

    Painting Tradition in Federal-Era Boston, American Furniture 2010, edited by Luke Beckerdite,

    Hanover and London: The Chipstone Foundation, 2010, Fig. 10, p. 9.

    Remarkably surviving with most of its original painted decoration intact, this sophisti-

    cated card table represents the combined effort of two of Bostons most pre-eminent

    craftsmen of the Federal era - the cabinetmaker Thomas Seymour (1771-1848) and the

    decorative painter John Penniman (1782-1841). It is one of the earliest extant examples

    of its form with a top that rotates around a threaded iron pivot rod to reveal an inner

    well for cards and game pieces. The Moroccan leather on the upper edges of the rails

    indicates that it is also the work of one of the immigrant morocco leather tanners that

    Seymour employed to add elegant enhancements to his furniture. It was made between

    1808 and 1812, during a period in which Thomas Seymour made his fi nest work in

    collaboration with highly skilled craftsmen.

    This table is illustrated and discussed in the article John Penniman and the Ornamental

    Painting Tradition in Federal-Era Boston, written by Robert Mussey and Christopher

    Shelton and published in American Furniture 2010 . Mussey and Shelton attribute

    the table to Thomas Seymour on the basis of its fastidious construction, square shap-

    ing of the legs, paneled therm foot design, and distinctive use of kerfed and bent glue

    blocks on the underside. The painted decoration is attributed to Pennimans shop on

    the basis of its shared similarities with the only extant piece of his signed work, a pier

    table inscribed Painted in M __ 1809 by John P__niman currently in the collection

    of the Nichols House Museum in Boston. In 1809, Penniman rented space in Thomas

    Seymours warehouse on Common Street. That fact combined with the pier tables

    distinctive hardware, use of ash as a secondary wood, and construction details attribute

    it to Thomas Seymours shop.

    As seen articulated on the supports of the aforementioned pier table, the pres-

    ent card table displays painted acanthus leaved on the legs perhaps inspired by the

    Ornament for a Tablet & Various Leaves illustrated as pl. 2 in Thomas Sheratons

    Cabinet-Makers and Upholsterers Drawing Book (1802). Penniman painted his acan-

    thus leaves with rounded tips and curl at the ends, in different shades of brown oil

    glaze applied in multiple layers with short fl uid brushstrokes, to create the illusion of

    shadows and depth. He also used pale or drab gray paint to simulate shadows on the

    right and below his leafage and panels, to give his work dimension and the illusion of

    a light source at the upper left. The latter technique is a signature detail found in all

    of his work. The interior wells of this card table appear to retain remnants of their

    original dark gray paint - the same shade used for the borders on the rest of the

    table - beneath the layer of blue paint.

    This table stems from the same suite of furniture as four painted and gilded birch

    fancy chairs, one of which bears the stenciled name Holden. One with original

    painted decoration is in the collection at Winterthur Museum and is marked I on

    the underside of the chair and on the caned seat frame. It also displays $6 written

    in pencil on the inner surface of the rear seat rail. Another in a private collection on

    loan to the New York State Museum is marked II and inscribed Holdens. Israel

    Sack Inc. formerly owned the aforementioned chairs and two others. They are ref-

    erenced in Israel Sack, Inc., American Antiques from Israel Sack Collection, Volume VII:

    1818, no. 5011, IX: 2439, no. 5011, X: 2705, no. 6341. One with an upholstered seat is

    illustrated in a Kinnaman & Ramaeker advertisement in The Magazine Antiques

    (March 1985): 506.

    The chairs exhibit virtually identical painted decoration to this table - a stylized shell

    surrounded by leaves, acanthus leaves on the legs with prominent central veins,

    roundels, distinctive shadowing in two shades of gray, and use of several shades of

    brown glaze. The name Holdens found on one of these chairs perhaps refers to

    Joshua Holden (1781-1852), a Boston chair maker and painter. He appears in Boston

    tax records in 1807 working in partnership with Asa Jones and later worked from

    1808 to 1811 as an independent craftsman on Washington Street, close to Thomas

    Seymours furniture warehouse. As Thomas Seymour often commissioned other

    craftsman to make furniture which he later sold, he perhaps had Holden make or

    decorate this suite of furniture. Given that the painted decoration closely relates to

    Pennimans oeuvre, the artisan who executed it was clearly familiar with his style and

    was likely trained or employed by him at one time.

    Provenance:

    This table has the same family history as a bombe chest-on-chest originally owned

    by Captain Edward Allen (1737-1803), a merchant of Salem, Massachusetts, that

    sold at Sothebys, Important Americana, January 23-4, 2009, sale 8512, lot 174. In

    1759, he married Ruth (1728-1774), the widow of Israel Gardner and daughter of

    Gamaliel Hodges, and sister of the wife of Richard Derby. After her death in 1774,

    he married Margaret Lockart (d. 1808) of North Carolina in 1778. He and his fam-

    ily lived in Salem at a house located at 125 Derby Street, at the corner of Hardy

    Street, which stands today. He had ten children: Edward (1763-1845), who married

    Anna Fisk (1770-1826) in 1798; Sarah, who married Stephen Webb in Salem in 1779;

    Ruth Hodges (1759-1849), who married Thomas Porter of Topsfi eld in 1785; Alice

    (b. 1765), who married Captain Josiah Orne (d. 1825) of Salem in 1786; Alexander

    (1778-1804); John (1779-1814); Sally (d. age 7); Jordan (1781-1797); Nancy (1784-

    1806); and Betsy (1787-1827). Although not originally owned by Edward Allen, this

    table came into the family house through one of his descendants. The house and its

    contents were inherited by Teresa Lovering Merriam (b. 1880) of Nahant, who never

    married and died without issue in the mid 20th century. At her death, she gifted her

    house and its contents to the parents of the present owner. As one of the children of

    Frank Merriam (1850-1924) and Teresa Beatrice Lovering Merriam (1854-1877), she

    presumably inherited the house from her parents.

    Queen Anne Red Stained Maple Drop-Leaf Dining Table

    New Hampshire, 1780-1820

    the oblong top fl anked by D-shaped hinged leaves above a frame with a molded

    edge on cabriole legs ending in wafer pad feet.

    H. 26 1/2 in., W. 16 3/4 in., D. 47 in.

    $6,000-9,000

    Provenance: Leigh Keno American Antiques (1995),

    New England Private Collection

    This Queen Anne drop-leaf table has a distinguishing ankle that is characteristic of

    New Hampshire furniture. As noted in Walter A. Backofens book, Some Queen

    Anne Furniture from New Hampshires Federal Period, the cabriole leg... with a

    prominent ankle spur or hock is particular to New Hampshire construction[1]. The

    ankle hock design was likely produced more quickly and cheaply than any alterna-

    tive with comparably aesthetic appeal[2]. By stopping the turning just as the foot

    emerges, the craftsman creates this type of foot with a pronounced ankle hock. All

    subsequent fi nishing would then be hand work, in which edges might be softened

    and material carved away to blend the square-edged hock into the back of the round

    foot. A number of examples in Backofens book share this characteristic leg including

    two tall chests of drawers from Grafton and Concord and two slant-front desks from

    Andover and Weare[3]. Two of these examples, the Concord chest of drawers and

    the desk from Andover, are similar to the currently offered table as their maple sur-

    faces are lightly washed with a thin red-stain further indicative of a New Hampshire

    origin [4].

    A Diminutive Federal Mahogany Upholstered Settee

    The carving attributed to Samuel McIntire (1751-1811)

    Salem, Massachusetts, circa 1800-1811

    h. 35 1/2 in.; l. 73 in.

    $40,000-80,000

    Provenance: Christies, New York, October 19, 1990, lot 328;

    With its exposed mahogany arms and crest rail, this sofa represents a version of

    the camelback sofa form unique to Salem, where it fi rst appeared in the 1790s and

    became one of the most desirable furniture forms associated with Samuel McIntire

    (1751-1811). His examples dating to the early nineteenth century were articulated

    with a distinctive basket of fruit and fl owers carved into the crest panel with a star

    punch ground, beneath a molded edge of alternating C-scrolls with chip carved

    edges. McIntire carefully conceived the basket to fi t snugly into the arch of the crest

    panel, giving it a tilted perspective to heighten the three-dimensional effect and

    accommodate a vantage point from above. No two baskets found on extant sofas

    are identical, suggesting McIntire did not copy a stock design but rather sketched out

    each design before executing it. The spiral acanthus rosette on the scrolled ends of

    the arms was inspired by classical ceiling motifs from antiquity illustrated in architec-

    tural pattern books, such as Matthias Darlys Ornamental Architect, or Young Artists

    Instructor (London, 1774). McIntire used this type of rosette for virtually all of his

    sofa commissions. Two surviving receipts from the shop of the Salem cabinetmakers,

    Elijah and Jacob Sanderson, one dated July 31, 1802 and another dated February 3,

    1802, indicate that McIntire was paid 1.07.0 pounds for Carving Sofa & working the

    top rail

    Retaining an old surface and originally upholstered in black horsehair fabric, this

    example is one of the most diminutive of its form. It displays McIntires virtuoso

    carving in its complex array of fruit and fl owers and scrolled arms accentuated with

    rosettes and waterleaves. Very similar carving is found on a camelback sofa made for

    the double parlors of the brick townhouse McIntire designed in Salem in 1804 for

    John and Sarah Gardner, Elias Hasket Derbys nephew and his wife. While the carv-

    ing is the work of McIntire, the sofa may have been made by Nathaniel Safford, who

    provided a great deal of new furniture for the house in 1805. Referred to today as

    the Gardner-Pingree House, this commission has long been recognized as McIntires

    fi nest surviving work.

    Less than a dozen other camelback sofas attributed to McIntire with baskets of fruit

    and fl owers have been identifi ed. These include one in a private collection sold at

    Sothebys, January 17-9, 1997, lot 917, one at Winterthur Museum, one in the col-

    Essex, Massachusetts, one in a private collection in Baltimore, Maryland, one in a pri-

    Federal Mahogany Card Table

    The carving attributed to Samuel McIntire, Salem, Massachusetts, 1805-1810

    This card table is nearly identical to a mahogany card table with carving attributed to

    Samuel McIntire (1757-1811) in the collection of the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley

    that is illustrated in Samuel McIntire: Carving an American Style by Dean Lahikainen.1

    Representing his work after 1805, both tables prominently display centered on the rail

    a lavishly-carved and oversized basket of fruit and fl owers, McIntires signature orna-

    ment, which he rendered with a ribbed melon as the most prominent piece of fruit and

    bunches of grapes at the sides. Following his common practice, he elongated the basket

    to fi t the table rail and oriented it tilting toward the viewer, who would have been look-

    ing at it from above. McIntire was carving baskets of this type up until the end of his life,

    as indicated by a September 21, 1810 receipt charging the cabinetmaker William Hook

    $4 for 4 baskets.2

    McIntire also ornamented these tables with carved edges of the top, acanthus carved

    rounded corners, and delicate reeded legs. They are further fi nished with carefully

    selected vibrantly fi gured veneers on the rail. A third virtually identical table from a

    private collection is illustrated as a Masterpiece in The New Fine Points of Furniture by

    Albert Sack.3

    A Fine Painted Federal Figured Maple Work Table

    Possibly from the shop of Thomas Seymour, possibly with John Seymour, the painted

    decoration school of John Penniman, Boston, circa 1805

    With locking sewing bag slide. Old fruit Jar label on underside of drawer LENT BY /

    N.F. LITTLE

    Made of lively curly maple with fl oral motifs painted on the apron sides, this elegant

    table relates to a very small group of worktables attributed to Thomas Seymour

    (1771-1848), possibly made in collaboration with his father John (1738-1818), with

    painting attributed to John Penniman (1782/3-1841). Its superior craftsmanship,

    distinctive foliate painted apron, and locking sewing bag slide are characteristic of

    the Seymour shop. This table also retains its original lions ring brasses of a pattern

    favored by the Seymours. The painted decoration is attributed to John Penniman,

    the most important decorative painter working in Boston during the Federal period.

    In 1809, he rented space in Seymours warehouse on Common Street and the two

    craftsmen collaborated on a number of furniture commissions, including this group of

    worktables. Pennimans naturalistic representations of the fl owers on this group, prob-

    ably observed from life, were intended to simulate a ladys fancy fl oral needlework.

    These renderings have since allowed for the identifi cation of fi fteen different species,

    all grown during that time period in New England.

    For other worktables from the group, see one made of birds-eye-maple in a private

    collection that descended in the family of Ebenezer Storer of Boston. It displays a

    top elaborately painted with a large cluster of fl owers, including a magnolia, iris, day

    lily, blue gentian, and trumpet vines, and a front and sides with monochrome brown

    It has been suggested that this chair was made for John Brown (1733-1785), although

    there is no written or other evidence to support this. This chair would have been

    custom-made for a client. Alfred Donaldson, in his 1921, History of the Adirondacks

    has written that Brown was known to be of average height but weighed in at a

    portly 300 pounds. John Brown was the richest merchant in Providence, Rhode

    Island. Until 1771 he was in business with his three brothers and with them was

    largely responsible for bringing Brown University to Providence. The Brown brothers,

    then John Brown himself after 1771, had extensive trade relations with Philadelphia,

    Boston, Newport and New York, and ordered furniture from Philadelphia and from

    John Goddard in Newport to furnish his houses. In 1786 he built the magnifi cent

    mansion in Provenance, now the headquarters of the Rhode Island Historical Society.

    The Lansdell K Christie Queen Anne Carved, Inlaid Veneered and Gilt

    Walnut High Chest of Drawers

    Boston, 1730-1750

    H. 81 1/2 in.; W. 40 in.; D. 21 1/2 in.

    $60,000-100,000

    With its bonnet top, gilded fi nials, fi gured walnut veneers, carved and gilded shells,

    mariners stars, and fl uted pilasters, this high chest relates to a small group of high

    chests and dressing tables made in Boston between 1730 and 1750. Their fashionable

    design and elaborate construction required the collaboration of a cabinetmaker, gilder,

    carver, turner and inlay maker. Collectively, they represent the height of Queen Anne

    craftsmanship stemming from Boston cabinet shops of the early to mid-eighteenth

    century.

    This chest exhibits shell and leaf carving that is very similar to the work of John

    Welch (1711-1789), the most prolifi c Boston carver of the pre-Revolutionary period.

    Similar carving attributed to Welch with shells scrolled volutes separated by gouged

    bulbs and overlapping leafy carving with angular termini appear on a set of eight side

    chair that descended from Charles (1698-1758) and Grizell (1709-1796) Apthorp of

    Boston, as well as on a tall-case clock in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago,

    and on the frames of the John Singleton Copley portraits of Jeremiah Lee and Isaac

    Smith.1

    Other high chests from the group include one sold in the Flayderman Sale, American

    Art Association, Anderson Galleries, New York, January 2-4, 1930, lot 437, one at the

    Metropolitan Museum of Art, one at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and one in

    the Kaufman Collection.2 Of these, only one -- the Museum of Fine Arts example

    -- is signed and dated 1739 by its maker, Ebenezer Hartshorne, a joiner working in

    Charlestown between 1729 and 1743. A dressing table at the Metropolitan Museum

    of Art and two others in the collection of Historic Deerfi eld are also part of this

    group.3

    The design of these case pieces evolved from Japanned predecessors. The gilded nat-

    uralistic shells were retained while the japanning was replaced with fi gured matched

    walnut veneers. This chest differs from the others in the group in its highly arched

    pediment, compressed shells against a foliate-carved ground, and inlaid stars on the

    case sides only. The shells on the Kaufman and Flayderman examples are rounded

    and rendered on a plain ground while the Metropolitan Museum example displays a

    half shell with a lobed profi le. All three have fl atter pediments and inlaid stars on the

    scroll board and sides. These varying details suggest the chests in this group represent

    the work of multiple shops.

    The present high chest - as is typical of the best examples of the period - exhibits

    brilliantly matched fi gured walnut veneers which are cut from the same fl itchs of

    wood for both the top section and bottom section, including the veneer on the sides.

    Queen Anne Inlaid Walnut Dressing Table

    Boston, Massachusetts, 1740-1760

    The decorative inlay of the drawer fronts and the radiating fan inlay of the scooped

    central drawer distinguish this dressing table from other examples; it is a feature char-

    acteristic of urban Massachusetts cabinetmaking. A high chest of drawers with similarly

    inlaid scoop drawers is illustrated in American Furniture at Winterthur (Downs,

    no. 190) a dressing table in the Bayou Bend Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts

    Houston demonstrates this elaborate decorative treatment as well (Warren, et al.;

    p. 43). A third dressing table, attributed to Boston and currently in the collection at

    Yale, exhibits several similar features as well (Ward, pp. 205-206). The inlaid fan is an

    early feature, slightly predating the later carved rococo fans and shells.

    Federal Mahogany Inlaid Sofa

    Northern New England, circa 1810

    The rectangular back over down-curving arms terminating in ring-turned and reeded

    bulbous arm supports over a fl ame birch inlaid panel, the sofa raised on four ring-

    turned, reeded and tapering front legs and four square back legs.

    The curved handholds, bulbous and reeded arm supports, presence of vibrant panels

    of veneer and bulbous and reeded legs are all characteristics of Portsmouth sofas;

    this sofa combines all of these elements with a graceful curved back and diminutive

    proportions. A full-size sofa with comparable elements is illustrated in Portsmouth

    Furniture: Masterworks from the New Hampshire Seacoast, (Jobe, cat. 105, pp. 375-

    377.)

    The over-the-rail upholstery on this small sofa prevents a detailed discussion of all but

    the underside construction of this sofa, which confi rms to the construction techniques

    associated with Portsmouth chairmakers : The leg and arm support at each front cor-

    ner are of one piece; the top of each arm support is round-tenoned into the curved

    Research reveals that a cursory examination of estate inventories of the Federal period

    before 1810, from all of the primary urban centers, indicates that sofas, couches and

    settees were luxuries. Most were owned by well-to-do individuals. By 1825, however,

    ownership of these seating forms was much more widespread. They were typically

    placed on the fi rst fl oor of large homes, in the parlor, or drawing room, the purpose

    of which Thomas Sheraton wrote was to concentrate the elegance of the whole

    housethe highest display of richness of furniture.

    Red Mens Lodge

    (Improved Order of Redmen)

    h. 60 1/2 in., w. 17 in.

    $10,000-20,000

    Provenance: Consigned by an upstate New York chapter of the Order

    of the Red Men, where it has been in their lodges for the last century.

    According to member Jim Putman who has been a Member since

    1941, The Teroga Redmens Club was fi rst formed circa 1938 and

    originally met at the Oddfellows Hall ( called The Grange) on Main

    Street in Johnstown, N. Y.. The Club was formally established in 1944

    when it moved to 16-18 Housac Street, its present location.

    In a telephone conversation between Mr. Putman and Leigh Keno on

    December 15th 2011, Mr. Putman described how the present Carved

    and painted Indian fi gure had been at the Lodge since his fi rst meet-

    ing and he recalls the Indian being used with its red light bulb lit at

    meetings through the years. The tribe would gather around it in a

    circle for a council meeting, symbolic of the Native American practice

    of meetings having been held around around a fi re. This fi gure was

    used for special meetings at the lodge until recently and Mr. Putman

    recalled that it had never been taken outside of the lodge (hence its

    excellent condition).

    He recalls that it came from one of the tribes of the Society of Red

    Men which proliferated in upstate New York and across the country

    in the 1940s.

    The Improved Order of Red Men, the consignor of the present lot,

    is Americas oldest fraternal organization. It is a national organization

    that is known as the Totem of the Eagle. According to their web-

    site, they were originally chartered by congress and the origins date

    back to 1765. After the war of 1812, the name was changed to The

    Society of Red Men which was changed again in 1834 to Improved

    Order of Red Men.

    Local lodges, like the Upstate New York Chapter which owns this, are

    called tribes. The patriotic members that belonged to these tribes,

    concealed their identifi cation and worked underground to help

    establish freedom and liberty in the early colonies. Because of the

    secrecy of the organization, a secret password was required that only

    members knew, which was T.O.T.E. Hence, the word TOTEM

    painted on the chief s headpiece. Past members of note include

    Warren E. Harding and both Franklin and Teddy Roosevelt.

    The organization patterned themselves after the Great Iroquois

    Confederacy and its democratic body. Occasionally, Native American

    costuming is worn at various public affairs. Their primary beliefs

    include love of and respect for the American fl ag, America and the

    democratic way of life, helping our fellow men through organized

    charitable programs, and perpetuating the legends and traditions,

    customs and ceremonies of a once vanishing race. Alzheimers

    research is the national charity project of the Improved Order of Red

    Men. Since 1991, the organization has giver over two million dollars to

    the Alzheimers Association.

    Other Notes: The metal pole with red-colored GE lightblub was

    added probably circa 1930.

    This pocketbook was probably owned by Nathaniel Richards (1712-1788), an inn-

    holder and saddler of Roxbury, Massachusetts. A highboy and matching lowboy made

    by Benjamin Frothingham (1755-1790) of Charlestown, Massachusetts may have also

    been worked on by Nathaniel Richards, who was a joiner for Frothingham, as his

    name appears in chalk on the bottom of the long drawer of the high-chests lower

    case.

It is widely believed that these treatments are permanent; buyers should assume that treatments may not be permanent and stones may require additional care over time. These treatments have been accepted by the jewelry trade. Keno Auctions, its employees, or representatives make no opinions or warran-ties regarding these enhancements/ treatments. All Jewelry is sold as is with no representations of enhancements, treatments or assumption of liability is assumed. This includes all weights, measurements, carats and clarity.
