Home For The Holidays: A Baby Boomer’s Christmas “Oh, there’s no place like home for the holidays, ’Cause no matter how far away you roam, When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze, For the holidays, you can’t beat home, sweet home!” “(There’s No Place Like) Home for the Holidays” Al Stillman & Robert Allen, 1954

By Donald-Brian Johnson

he turkey’s in the oven. The ornament-bedecked tree is knee-deep (at least) in brightly-wrapped packages. Festive stockings, stuffed with Santa’s bounty, overflow the mantel, and cascade to the hearth. On the stereo, Bing croons a carol. Glowing candles and twinkling lights bathe the room in holiday sparkle. And, each and every table, shelf, and ledge is filled with seasonal décor items. Coy ceramic angels and jolly spaghettiware Santas jostle for elbowroom with heirloom Nativity sets and light-up plastic carolers. There are soap-stencils on the windows. Mistletoe lies in wait over every doorway. Is there any doubt about the holiday in question? Of course not: it’s Christmas! “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” Yes, it’s Christmas, as babyboomers like myself knew it in the 1950s and ‘60s, and Christmas as many still observe it today. Nostalgia never tugs more tightly than during the holiday season. It all begins just around


Thanksgivingtime, as we scrounge through basements and attics, closets and garages, in search of decorations stored oh-socarefully away last January. But memories are short, and the search seems endless. How on earth could we misplace a tree? (After all, it’s a tree!) And weren’t we going to put everything in one place last year? Or at least make a list? (Oh yes, we did make a list. But we packed it.) And there’s where we hid that last chocolate Easter egg no one could find. Hmmm. Not bad. As we unpack each box of cherished decorations, we also unpack a multitude of memories. The years melt away, as we unwrap and marvel over each “old friend.” There’s that Madonna with the broken halo. Remember when, in the excitement of opening a particularly longed-for present, a stray arm sent her flying from the coffee table? A little “Elmer’s” though, and she was “just as good as new” (or so Mom said). And, there’s the well-worn “Santa” hat. Dad always donned it when doling out presents, proclaiming the gift inscriptions with great gusto (“From Santa and the Missus”; “From Rudolph and the Elves”). The more anticipated the gift, the more drawn-out its presentation. Was that by chance? Probably not!

All these memories, and many more like them, form your own, your very special and specific, holiday heritage. And Christmas is the time to celebrate that heritage. . .those uniquely-yours family traditions. Christmas is the time to remember. “The Merriest Christmas Ever!” After World War II, “decorating for the holidays” became big business. Dad took care of the “outside work,” braving the elements to string colored lights along the eaves-troughs, then hoisting an unwieldy plywood Santa up to the roof, there to be safely tethered against the chimney. Mom’s domain was indoors, and there were plenty of homemaking magazines eager to help her dazzle with “the best Christmas ever.” Most augmented their regular issues with holiday edition “specials,” trumpeted as “The Most Memorable Christmas Issue Ever Produced!” and “The Most Famous Christmas Issue Of All!” Here are just a few of the topics featured in the December 1955 American Home: “Start With What You Have at Christmas” “‘Expensive’ Decorations From the Dime Store!” “No Space Too Small for Christmas Spirit” “A Christmas Crèche Is a Beautiful Custom” “The Fireplace That Says ‘Won’t You Stay?’” “Look - A Shiny Red Tree!” “Verily, Merrily, Our Christmas Tables” “Christmas With a Country Flavor” “This Christmas Will Be Different!” After being worn to a Christmassy decorating frazzle, Mom could then move on to

Sparkling stars, seen through the limbs of a forest fir, prompted Luther to place candles on the branches of a tree at his own home, recapturing the starry effect. For baby-boomers, three treetypes of the 1950s and ‘60s elicit warm feelings: • Traditional Towering Green. Limbs laden with tinsel, dripping (Continued on page 2)

Home For The Holidays or realistically tree-like. But, under a rotating color wheel, it looked terrific! The Lights. In 1917, Albert Sadacca, (15 at the time), invented the “safety Christmas light,” prompted by a candlelit tree tragedy in New York. Albert’s invention became the cornerstone of the NOMA Electric Company, the world’s largest supplier of holiday lighting. Another baby boomer favorite: “bubble lights,” tubes of fluid attached to globular plastic lighted bases. Introduced just after World War II, “bubblers” have fallen in and out of favor, (early tubes sometimes leaked, or refused to produce bubbles), but less troubleprone modern versions have enjoyed a resurgence.

with ornaments and ungainly colored NOMA bulbs, were the hallmarks of the ‘50s “green tree.” Artificial trees were first introduced in 1950 by the Addis Company. Their other best-seller: toilet brushes. • Flocked. A staple of the 1960s, the intended overall effect of a snow-covered tree in the moonlight was enhanced by hundreds of tiny twinkle lights peeping through artificial snow. White flocking was the norm, but eerily phosphorescent blue trees and Pepto-Bismol pink trees also had their fans. For the especially ambitious, home flocking kits were available. • Aluminum. The silvery aluminum tree with its pompom branches came with built-in disadvantages. It couldn’t tolerate electric bulbs and wouldn’t hold many ornaments.

SHOPS & CENTERS Collector Anecdotes And Antics name at least four television shows that I will watch this week alone on the subject of antiques and collectibles (“American Pickers,� “Antiques Roadshow,� “Pawn Stars,� and “Toy Hunter�). Whether or not I agree with how these shows portray the monetary fascination of the objects shown does not matter. What does matter is that never before in the history of the trade have younger generations been so passionate about the future of the antiques and collectibles market. I consider shows like “Toy Hunter� and “Pawn Stars� to be a representation of this trend. Furthermore, I came of age at a time when the Internet was just beginning to transform not only the way we buy and sell the objects we hold so dear, but also how we choose to interact with fellow collectors and enthusiasts alike. I graduated high school in 1995, which is the same year a

Welcome to Collector Anecdotes and Antics! This is my very first column for Antiques and Auction News, and I want to take some time to thank the editor, Karl Pass, for giving me an opportunity to write for this fine publication. This is a very special column for me, and one that I feel very passionate about. It

the vital experiences and viewpoints shared from those post-baby boomer generations who will carry on the trade long after the current generations are gone. One of my primary goals for writing this column is to bridge the gap between past and present generations by defining what and how younger generations collect, why we buy, and how we view the overall market. Analyzing the collecting habits and influences from my generation is the key to understanding, not only where the overall market is headed, but also why and what we choose to collect. This in turn will greatly help other generations learn what items appeal to us most and also understand the pseudoscience and reasoning behind why we choose to buy certain objects instead of others. (Note: it isn’t always because of passion or nostalgia.) As I write this column, I can easily

is my sincere hope that readers will enjoy this column just as much as I enjoy writing it. At first glance, this may seem like just another ongoing column about the state of the antiques and collectibles trade, but I assure you that it is not. When I first approached Karl about doing this project, I emphasized that this column would be about my experiences within the trade, as viewed from the perspective of what most historical pundits would consider to be a by-product of the post-baby boom generation commonly known as Generation X. At 37 years of age, I am part of the generation that embraced the digital age, helped define the term e-commerce, and made Nintendo a household name. In my opinion, one of the most important influential aspects missing from most publications focused on antiques and collectibles is

Doors open at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 1, with bidding starting at 11 a.m. The public is also invited to preview items from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 31. J. Levine Auction & Appraisal is located at 10345 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, Ariz., (southeast corner of Scottsdale Road and Shea Blvd.). “We’re featuring the ‘best of the best’ with a focus on fine art, bronzes and sculpture, Orientalia, estate jewelry, 18thcentury silver, and more from affluent estates throughout Arizona. Many are high profile, museum-quality offerings you would not expect to see in Arizona.

Items expected to cause a bidding frenzy include a controversial painting by Lyonel Feininger that Levine said could go for $10,000 or $10 million. The painting, “Untitled: Figures in the Street,� has been debated among art experts as to whether it is real or fake. Levine went to great lengths to prove its authenticity and while the jury is still out regarding its value, the highest bidder will receive all of his research documents. Other items include a signed copy of the Gadsden Purchase (estimated value between $15,000 and $20,000); a rare amethyst and diamond cross dating to the late 18th century, and passed down purportedly by descendants of the Austrian Royal Habsburg family (valued between $10,000 and $20,000); a Chinese spinach jade marriage bowl dating to the late 19th or early 20th century (valued between $8,000 and $12,000); and more.

Six valuable and diverse world coin collections will all be vying for primacy in Heritage Auctions’ World and Ancient Coin Signature Auction, taking place at the Waldorf-Astoria in Manhattan, in conjunction with the New York International Numismatic Convention (NYINC) on Sunday and Monday, Jan. 5 and 6, 2014. “This is as striking and varied an auction as I can remember,� said Cristiano Bierrenbach, vice president at Heritage Auctions. “It’s a perfect storm of collections that, taken together, represent some of the very best international and ancient coins in existence.� The RLM Collection, Part III - of Brazilian Gold - is the third and final part of Dr. Roberto Monteiro’s impressive Brazilian coin cabinet, presented in its own section under Brazilian coins. Part III of the collection spans the Empire to Republic period of Brazil, covering 100 years of Brazilian history. A classic rarity, the 1822 Coronation 6400 Reis of Pedro I kicks off the collection and a 1922 10000 Reis, of which only six were minted, closes it. The Hans Cook Collection of British Gold, beginning with Edward III (1327-1377) and ending at George VI (1937), represents every monarch of the

600-year span (as well as the Cromwell and Commonwealth issues). The collection illustrates the history of British coinage in gold. “This is an incredible accomplishment,� said Warren Tucker, vice president of Heritage. “Many of the coins represent the finest known of their type, with several other rare varieties that will entice collectors of British numismatics worldwide.� The Isaac Rudman Collection of Guatemala is one the finest grouping of Guatemalan rarities to ever be sold at auction. Rudman’s set surpasses legendary collections such as Norweb and Eliasberg. While many pieces in the collection are only known to exist in quantities numbering less than 10, perhaps most notable is the 1824 8 Escudos issued under the Central American Republic. “The Hammel/Rudman 8 Escudos of 1824 is a masterpiece of numismatic art and widely regarded as the most beautiful coin of Latin America,� said Bierrenbach. “The combination of the design and condition makes this a legendary piece.� Canadian coin collectors are abuzz over the offering of

The MacLeod Collection of Canadian Dollars, the finest collection of Specimen, Proof and Prooflike Dollars ever assembled. Many examples qualify as the finest known for their respective dates, such as the key 1947 George VI Specimen Dollar, Blunt 7 graded Specimen 68 by PCGS. Rarities from more than 20 countries populate the impressive Collection of Donald E. Bently, being sold for the benefit of The Bently Foundation. This offering is a small piece of the Bently Collection, which is one of the largest collection ever consigned to Heritage. Collected by type, highlights include multiple ducats of Poland and Transylvania as well as a simply remarkable British 1701 “Fine Work� 5 Guineas, graded MS64, a certain candidate for the finest known of its kind. The Formosa Collection is a painstakingly assembled grouping, which took more than three decades to put together and is hotly anticipated by type collectors. Business strikes, proofs and pattern coinage of all metals make this diverse trip through numismatics. With many highlights to its credit, a particular noteworthy item is a unique 1862 Indian silver type set in gold. The set, once in the collection of King Farouk of (Continued on page 7)

Early Owego Antique Center Underwrites Screening Of “The General” The Early Owego Antique Center is pleased to announce it is underwriting the Broome Theater Organ Society’s presentation of the silent film classic “The General.” Produced in 1926 and starring Buster Keaton in one of his most strenuous and comedic roles, “The General” was the most expensive film made at the time. It cost roughly $750,000 to make the film, and it was loosely based on the famous Civil War locomotive chase, which included an actual steam locomotive and cars that plunged off a bridge. The film will be shown on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 29, at 2 p.m. at the Forum Theater in Binghamton, N.Y. Adding to the excitement on the screen will be the authentic accompaniment of master theater organist Jim Ford, playing on the Forum’s 1926 Robert Morton 24-rank theater pipe organ.

Join the fun this holiday season and take advantage of this opportunity to experience “The General” on the big screen. With a live theater organ providing the sound effects and highlighting the emotions and comedy onscreen as only a huge and mighty instrument can, the event will be a treat for young and old alike. The Broome Theater Organ Society is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to preserving, promoting and presenting the Theater Organs of the Southern Tier of New York State. The Early Owego Antique Center is a multi-dealer antique extravaganza hosting over 80 dealers on 21,000 sq. ft. of clean and well lit space in the heart of downtown Owego, N.Y.

Original Curt Swan Auction Comics Cover Art Of Superman And JFK As Clark Kent Steals The Show At Hake’s

Harding and Coolidge ‘real photo’ campaign jugate, $29,601.

An extraordinary treasure to comic art collectors, Swan’s eye-filling cover art for Action Comics #309 is believed to be the only surviving original art from the issue DC Comics tried to recall in the week following President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Coincidentally, the issue’s storyline, which included all of the members of the “Superman family,” focused on The Man of Steel’s friendship with President Kennedy, disguised as Clark Kent. “While there was nothing at all disrespectful about the comic book’s portrayal of JFK as Clark Kent, a comic book is still entertainment, and its release might have seemed inappropriate at a

time when America was grieving over the death of its president,” said Hake’s General Manager Alex Winter. “Although DC Comics did its best to recall the issue, the distribution process was already too far along for it to be stopped. As a result, Action Comics #309, and the cover art we sold, will always have a connection to history.” In claiming top lot honors, the Swan cover art became the second-highestpriced item ever sold by Hake’s. On September 27, 2007, the Pennsylvaniabased firm auctioned a pair of rare, giant display dolls of Walt Disney’s Mickey

Richly visual, historically significant, and unique in the dictionary sense of the word, the original Curt Swan cover art for Action Comics #309 helped rewrite the record books at Hake’s when it closed at $112,015 on day three of the company’s Nov. 19 to 21 auction. The sale achieved $1,346,848, making it the highest-grossing Hake’s auction since the company’s launch in 1967.

Museum Of The Shenandoah Valley Acquires Rare Shearer Desk Desk Made In 1808 By John Shearer Was Previously Unrecorded And Features Hidden Note The Museum of the Shenandoah Valley (MSV) in Winchester, Va., has purchased a rare 19th-century desk made by one of the Shenandoah Valley’s most recognizable and eccentric early artisans. Crafted in 1808 by John Shearer (active ca. 1798-1818), the desk was acquired by the MSV on Nov. 16 at Brunk Auctions in Asheville, N.C. This desk by John Shearer was recently acquired by the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley. Photo courtesy of Brunk A u c t i o n s , Asheville, North Carolina.

According to MSV executive director Dana Hand Evans, the desk is a fine example of John Shearer’s work, and it perfectly tells the quirky cabinetmaker’s story. Shearer, who is known to have worked in Martinsburg, Va., (now West Virginia), typically signed his name multiple times on his objects, and he also often inscribed them with political sentiments or other thoughts. The elaborately carved MSV desk is no exception. Signed, dated, and inscribed in numerous places, the desk also features a hidden note that Shearer wrote and pasted into a tambour compartment. The note documents the desk’s story and references characters in Shearer’s life. There may be as few as 54 known objects by Shearer in private and museum collections, including those of Colonial Williamsburg and the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts (MESDA). The desk just acquired by the MSV was previously unrecorded. In the family of Charles H. Folwell of Mount Holly, N.J., during the 1930s, the desk may have descended from the original owner (Philip Stuber) through the Neill family of Hagerstown, Md. At the MSV, the desk joins a circa 1818 Shearer walnut sideboard, the only one by the artisan that is known to exist, which the MSV acquired in 2010. Prior to their acquisitions by the MSV, both the Shearer desk and the sideboard were in private collections and not accessible to the public. The desk’s inlaid details include a shield, chains, anchors, and medallion. One inscription reads, “Lord Nelson and Victory.” Another inscription on the underside of the newly acquired desk reads, “Made by Shearer Joiner from Edinburg 1808 in the fall.” An inlaid panel on a drawer panel reads, “By Shearer to Stuben.” The desk is inscribed “Martinsburg” in several places.

printmaker between 1915 and 1945. His etchings, highly prized, are an offshoot from his work as a commercial illustrator. The two etchings in the auction are both drypoint and sandpaper ground. One is titled “Bay Windows” (1929, Edition 104) and shows a snowy Manhattan street scene. The other, titled “Stoops in Snow” (1930, Edition 115), also shows figures walking in New York’s

The lengthy note reads: “I made this desk for an Honest Dutchman of the name of Philip Stover in Frederick County Maryland Close by the River in the year 1808 - the same year that I made John Mitchell’s desk close by Late’s [?] Mill [?] in the same County, but a biger Rascle as well as fool Is not to be found in this county than this John Mitchell. The running doors that is in this desk was made for this very Rascle’s Desk Jno. Mitchell My Name is John Shearer joiner from Edinborough North Britan Not forgetting a Sarha Skags the Bigest Whor in this county lived there at that time.” According to MSV director Evans, the MSV has established an endowment for the sole purpose of presenting exhibitions and building the museum’s collection. Evans notes that while the MSV is young and lacks the purchasing power of many larger, more established institutions, this careful planning has made possible such significant acquisitions as the Shearer desk. These acquisitions are milestone achievements for the museum, says Evans, for they bring important objects of valley history home and place them on display in the MSV, where all may view them. “The MSV is focused on acquiring objects that have a solid provenance, are relevant to the valley’s history, and tell engaging stories,” comments Evans. “This desk was a home run on all counts, and we couldn’t be happier.” Following minor conservation, the desk will go on view in the MSV as quickly as possible. Those who visit the MSV to see it may also be interested in a book, “The Furniture of John Shearer, 1790-1820,” which is available for purchase in the MSV store. Written by Elizabeth A. Davison, the book was published by Alta Mira Press in partnership with the MSV, MESDA, and the Daughters of the American Revolution Museum. The MSV is located at 901 Amherst Street in Winchester, Va. The MSV complex, including the museum, the Glen Burnie house, and six acres of gardens, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The museum is open year round, the gardens are open April through October. The house is now closed until 2014 for a comprehensive preservation project. For additional information, visit snowy streets. Both are pencilsigned by Lewis. Assorted artwork, estate jewelry, sterling silver, 20 bronze sculpture, Oriental rugs, two baby grand pianos, music boxes, rare books, and various other decorative accessories will be offered, as well. A wide variety of English and American furniture of numerous styles and from numerous time periods will be in the sale, too. For more information, visit or call 860-246-244.
