Please see Robert F. Trent, Heart and Crown Chairs, New Haven: New Haven Historical Society, 1977, pl. 17, p. 48. $1,500-2,5001James (1912-1999) and Kathryn Abbe shared a love for art, antiques and photography. Each had well-established careers, James, as a pho-tographer and later as a well known dealer in Folk Art and Americana. He was known for his excellent taste and was a pioneering advocate for Folk Art, The emphasis should be on the Art and not the Folk he would say. Kathryn, a photographer and an identical twin, is the author of several books; her work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries. Each had a great eye, and when they worked together, the result was often splendid. They liked the juxtaposition of one object with another and the effects of light and shadow. Our January 22 sale features some of the best works from the folk art collection that they built together. Starting the sale off will be a Black Painted Queen Anne Heart and Crown Arm Chair with a classic shaped and pierced crest-rail and graceful arms that shows more than 250 years of usage; it was made in Connecticut in the fi rst-half of the 18th century (lot 1).Prominent among the pieces is a rare 18th century Polychrome Painted White Pine Countertop Figure of a standing gentleman (lot 18). A pair of early folk art paintings of twins, circa 1815, is powerful for the sitters stern expressions and edginess (lot 3) that brings to mind photographer Diane Arbuss haunting work Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967.The Abbes loved carved and painted wooden and metal fi gures. A painted wood, tin and iron fi gure of a rooster (lot 4), probably used as a roof ornament, is a whimsical accessory to any home. A portrait of a Girl in a Rocking Chair by Asahel Powers (lot 15) is an excellent example of Powers work. As an untrained artist Powers had a diffi cult time making items appear to be anchored to the fl oor; the young girl appears to be fl oating.PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF JAMES AND KATHRYN ABBE Additional Information and Condition Reports at Kenoauctions.com 52344Painted Wood Tin and Iron Figure of a Rooster American, 1830-1890 H. 22 in.; W. 25 in.Probably once used as a roof ornament.$1,500-2,5002Gilt Copper Weathervane Depicting a SteerProbably L.

It survives with its original glass and frame intact.We also have a family reunion of sorts with a double portrait (c. 1828) by the renowned deaf-mute artist John Brewster Jr. Portrait of Marcia Bowman Winter (b. 1824) and William Drew Winter (b. 1820) of Bath, Maine (lot 52). It is serendipitous that two of their siblings, Sarah and Wealthy Winter, also painted by Brewster at about the same time, were recently discovered at the family homestead in Maine. They are depicted in another double portrait in this sale consigned by direct descendants of the sitters (lot 49, front cover).It is an honor and pleasure for Keno Auctions to offer for sale the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Isbell. People collect for a variety of reasons; the Isbells assem-bled a fabulous Americana collection because of their passion for each piece. Over three decades they sought out the best examples of high quality Colonial American furniture and folk art using the criteria of quality, rarity, condition and provenance as their guide. Two examples of Queen Anne furniture, each from mid-18th century Massachusetts, rank high on the scale in terms of the Isbells standards. The Queen Anne diminutive mahogany table with rectangular drop leaves (lot 53), is constructed of the very best quality highly fi gured mahogany, with powerful, yet graceful cabriole legs. One of just a few Queen Anne tables in the world of this small size, it also retains much of its original fi nish. The Cox-Pickering Bonnet-Top mahogany high chest (lot 40) displays vertical proportions, a crisply scalloped skirt and shell-carved drawers and an impeccable pedigree; the piece descended directly from Timothy Pickering (1702-1778) the prominent merchant of Salem, Massachusetts.Philadelphia Chippendale furniture from the 1760s is well represented in the collection by two pieces, each purchased by the Isbells more than 20 years ago. 37The Dr. and Mrs. Robert Isbell Collection37Anne Pratt Armstrong (American)Winter in Shushan, New York Circa 1900 Oil and mica on canvas 18 x 25 inches Provenance: Private Ohio Collection; Olde Hope Antiques, Inc., New Hope, Pennsylvania, 2009$3,000-6,000THE COLLECTION OF DR.

At that time, Maine was still a part of Massachusetts and he served as a representative to the Massachusetts legislature the First Congregational Pastor in Bath. He married Abigal Alden (1750-1826) in 1768. Francis and Abigal The following lot comprises a portrait of Wealthy and Sarah Winter, sisters of Marcia and William Winter (whose portrait will be offered as lot 52). The present owners of lot 49 are direct descendants of the Winter family. Keno auctions is honored to offer these sibling portraits in the same auction. 49Winter had four children, including Samuel (1789-1835). He married Sarah Bowman (1793-1828) in 1814. They had seven children, including the four depicted here in lots 49 and 52. Thier mother, Sarah Bowman (whose portrait, also by john Brewster, Jr., is still in the family collection) died just six days after giving birth to her seventh child.Thier father, Samuel Winter, a seaman, distiller and leader of the local Whig Party, was regarded as a notable citizen. He died in 1835; his orphaned children were adopted by family members.The Winter Family homestead remains with the direct descendants to this day. Until now, this portrait hung on the wall across from a portrait of their mother, Sarah Bowman, since it was painted circa 1827. The portrait of William Drew and Marcia Bowman Winter (offered as lot 52) was sold by the family some years ago and thus the portraits were separated. It is serendipitous that these two portraits are reunited for the fi rst time in more than thirty-fi ve years.Provenance: Descended directly in the family of the sitters to the present owner. $40,000-80,00024 Additional Information and Condition Reports at Kenoauctions.com505151Panelled Maple and Pine Valuables ChestNew England, 1690-1720 H. 21 in.; W. 19 in.; D. 12 in.

This chest is an extremely successful example of the form in the beauty and execution of its design, and the selection of richly swirled dense mahogany. The proportions are superb; the narrow case is balanced by the generous overhanging top. In addition, the carved claw-and-ball feet are boldly carved expression of the design element, with well-articulated talons gripping the carved ball.Please note: Typical of Boston practice, the top is attached to the case sides with a slid-ing dovetail, the drawers have fi ne dovetails and the drawer bottoms are chamfered and received into the drawer front and sides. The claw-and-ball feet are tenoned up through the case (rather than just being glued on the underside and secured with additional glue blocks in the standard manner. This through-tenon method was a more laborious means of construction, yet yielded a stronger bond with the case.). $50,000-80,00010250 Additional Information and Condition Reports at Kenoauctions.comProperty of a New York Lady103Yellow Painted Semi-Hollow Copper Fish Weathervane on Iron Rod with Yellow Painted Copper DirectionalsAmerican, late 19th / early 20th century On iron rod with yellow painted copper directionalsH. 33 in.; W. 12 in.; L.

The design of this pair, with tubaned fi gures on tripod bases comprised of acanthus leaf carved cabriole legs ending in bold claw and ball feet, is very dramatic and appropriate for what one would expect to be produced for a home in 18th century England, or its American colonies.Wood analysis by Henry Alden confi rms that the wood of the tables is bass-wood, also known in Eng-land as lime-wood. This hardwood was popular with carvers in England because of its close grain. Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721) did most of his fl ower and fi gure carvings for St. Pauls Cathedral and Windsor Castle in lime-wood. Bass-wood was also often used as a secondary wood for craftsmen such as Japanners.An additional report by Jennifer Mass, Senior Scientist at Winterthur, confi rms the presence of seven paint layers executed in period techniques including smalt, verdigris and bronze powder paint.H. 28 in.; W.

The series refl ected popular American sentiments of the times, when many saw pastoralism as the ideal phase of human civilization, fearing that imperialism would lead to decadence and inevitable decay. The series was acquired by The New-York Historical Society in 1858 as a gift of the New-York Gallery of Fine Arts, and comprises the following works: The Course of Empire - The Savage State; The Course of Empire - The Arcadian or Pastoral State; The Course of Empire - The Consummation of Empire; The Course of Empire - Destruc-tion; and The Course of Empire - Desolation.The series of paintings depicts the growth and fall of an imaginary city, situated on the lower end of a river valley, near its meeting with a bay of the sea. The valley is distinctly identifi able in each of the paintings, in part be-cause of an unusual landmark: a large boulder is precari-ously situated atop a crag overlooking the valley. Some critics believe this is meant to contrast the immutability of the earth with the transience of man.

They love the juxtaposition of modern with traditional ranging from symbolism to widely varying textured painted and weathered surfaces. Their appreciation of form, color and texture is exhibited in their collection of exceptional painted furniture, weathervanes, redware pottery, hooked rugs and wood carvings. Over a period of about 30 years, dealer and consultant Mary Beth Keene, then working at Wayne Pratt Inc., expertly guided and advised them on the very best of their acquisitions. Typical of the quality of several weathervanes in the collection is the wonderful gilt cop-per peacock, circa 1865, (lot 121) and the leaping stag, attributed to Harris & co. Boston (lot 123). The Queen Anne Salmon-Painted Chest of Five Drawers, made circa 1795, (lot 122) and attributed to Samuel Dunlap of New Hampshire, is the collections mas-terpiece. This bold form, a case of drawers raised on graceful cabriole legs, most remarkably retains its original salmon red paint, and the oval pressed brasses are also original. Not only is it a sublimely beautiful object in remarkable condition; it is a rare Rosetta stone for Samuel Dunlap furniture. The equivalent in vintage car world would be a beautiful 1959 Ferrari Testarossa racing car which has survived with its original paint. The Kleins assembled a spectacular group of Windsor armchairs with an emphasis on great form and excellent surface. It is rare to see such a fi ne group of exam-ples in one collection (lot 50).Joanne and Jeffrey Klein are the perfect example of a couple who simply bought what pleased them and as a result formed a truly wonderful collection. It is an honor and a pleasure to offer these pieces at Keno Auctions.

The normal pattern for bid-ding increments will be as follows:Low Estimate Increments< 999 $50s$1,000 1,999 $100s$2,000 4,999 $250s$5,000 9,999 $500s$10,000 29,999 $1,000s$30,000 49,999 $2,500s$50,000 99,999 $5,000s> $100,000 at auctioneers discretionThese increments may vary during the course of the auction at the discretion of the auctioneer.Estimates Pre-sale estimates are provided to encourage competitive bidding. These esti-mates may not be relied upon as any predictions of the selling price and may not be considered to be any opinion or representation regarding the value of the property. Keno Auctions shall not be responsible or liable for any differ-ence between a pre-sale estimate and the actual selling price for any lot. Reserves Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is a confi dential minimum price set by the seller below which the lot will be not be sold. The reserve will not exceed a given low pre-sale estimate at the time of the auction. Regardless of whether there is a reserve, the auctioneer may reject any bid and withdraw any lot for any reason. In order to comply with the sellers reserve on any lot, the auctioneer may open bidding by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may bid further on behalf of the seller (i.e. a bid from the book held by the auctioneer) up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. If a lot is not sold, the auctioneer will announce that fact (normally by stating that the lot has been unsold or passed).Property of Keno Auctions / Guarantees Should Keno Auctions own any lot in whole or in part or have a fi nancial inter-est in any lot equivalent to an ownership interest, the catalogue will clearly iden-tify any such property as the Property of Keno Auctions.
