The Roots Of Many Modern Conveniences Can Be Found In This CollectionOf Models n July 4, 1836, President A n d r e w Jackson authorized the construction of a patent office building in Washington, D.C. It was designed to celebrate American invention, technical ingenuity, and the scientific advancements that the patent process represents. In 1840, the Patent Office moved into the south wing of what is now the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s historic main building. Some 200,000 models were originally displayed in cases nine feet high in the grand galleries on the third floor of the building, which was completed in 1868. American patent law in the nineteenth century required the submission and public display of a model with each patent application. These scale models in miniature illustrate not only the imaginative fervor of the era but also the amazing

craftsmanship required to fabricate these often intricate works of art. Many of the models were constructed by specialized makers in workshops located near the Patent Office. The exhibit i o n “Inventing a B e t t e r Mousetrap: Patent Models From The Rothschild Collection” on view at the Smithsonian American Art Museum through November 3, 2013, features thirtytwo models illustrating the wide variety of nineteenth-century patented inventions submitted by inventors from across the United States. All of the models on display are from the collection of Alan Rothschild, whose holdings of 4,000 patent models is the largest private assemblage of American patent models anywhere. The models in the exhibition are grouped by category, including domestic life, leisure, and machinery. The models are complemented by drawings, illustra-

tions, a rare early patent signed by George Washington, and a fullscale model of a “better” mousetrap with questions about its advantages and disadvantages over more conventional mousetraps. The installation also include a case of “mystery models,” each accompanied by a clue, which allows visitors to guess their purpose. The exhibition is on display in the museum’s Allan J. and Reda R. Riley Gallery. Charles Robertson, deputy director emeritus of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and specialist in American decorative arts, is the curator of the exhibition. In 2011, Alan and Ann Rothschild generously donated twentyfive patent models to the museum for its permanent collection. Visitors who can’t get enough of these amazing miniatures of the mind should visit the website for the Rothschild Petersen Patent Model Museum at www.patent The Rothschild Petersen Patent M o d e l Museum i s the largest privatelyowned viewable collection of United States Patent Models in the world. The collection spans America’s Industrial Revolution. The Rothschild Petersen Patent Model Museum collection is currently located in a custom-designed facility in Cazenovia, New York. Alan Rothschild - an inventor himself - has constructed an impressive facility to display hundreds of the models, along with a workshop/laboratory where the remaining models are stored, studied and cared for.

The winning bidder was Sir Henry Wellcome, founder of Wellcome Pharmaceutical Company (now known as Glaxo Smith Kline). After Wellcome’s death, the collection was broken up and thousands of models were sold off by a succession of private owners. Alan Rothschild acquired the remainder of the original collection in the 1990s from aerospace engineer, Cliff Petersen, and 1 8 5 0 ’ s , over 100,000 visitors came to the building e s t a b - each year to view the models and lished the other artifacts and curiosities on Rothschild view.

decades. By 1880 over 14,000 patents were being issued annually. Eventually, many highly skilled model-making shops grew up around the Patent Office Building to meet the demand for ever more sophisticated inventions.

ing this era. Though not specifically mandated, the size of the models was traditionally no larger than one cubic foot. They were not required to be working models but only to demonstrate the feasibility of the patent requested. Many of the applications, including a number whose models are in this exhibition, were for improvements to earlier inventions. The large majority of the patents granted, however, were not deemed practical for commercial production. The law was modified in 1870, and the submission of models became optional, although many inventors continued to provide them. By 1880 the submission of models was prohibited unless they were requested by the Paper Bag Making Machine, Inventor: Edgar Stocking, 1881, Rothschild Patent Model Collection.

Commissioner of Patents. By this time a professional corps of specialized patent examiners was fully capable of approving patents on the basis of detailed drawings and descriptions alone. Thus came the end of an era in America’s creative and technological history, but the models remain as a unique testament of their inventors’ imagination and the amazing skill of the craftsmen who produced them. To avoid potential light damage, the drawings and other works on paper in “Inventing a Better Mousetrap: Patent Models From The Rothschild Collection” are reproductions of the historic originals. The Smithsonian American Art Museum has published two books that relate to the themes of American ingenuity and the history of the U.S. Patent Office that may interest visitors to this exhibition.

While the birth date of cranberry glass is in dispute, and everyone from Italians to Germans to Bohemians lay claim to its creation - some

by putting a copper oxide in the molten glass. Still many others insist that true cranberry glass was developed when British glassmakers in the mid-eighteenth century discovered that adding gold chloride to their mix would turn the glass the beautiful shade of deep pink. But whoever first created it, no one can argue that cranberry glass embodies both mystery and sophistication. It became wildly popular during the Victorian era, when everything from beakers and wine glasses to cruets and candlesticks graced the tables of gentry throughout the world. So (Continued on page 7)

searched quickly and found that the dealer had popped it out of the frame and mixed it in with some sheet music. His plan was quite obvious, get the two lots for very little and then he would have a real bargain. So, the dealer bid on the frames and he paid about $50 for them. I was furious, so I ran him up on the print, eventually prevailing at a strong price, as I wanted it for myself. He left with an expensive frame and I left with a very expensive print. Not sure who learned the lesson! Such behavior is unfortunate because when it happens, we all get painted with the same brush as “those sneaky dealers� who will rob you blind. I remember talking to my old friend, the late Johnny Neidinger, who commented on how a bad experience with a dealer will foul

dealers, there are a few who are bad eggs, and an even smaller number who are really rotten. My first experience with this was many, many years ago at a country sale way out near State College, Pennsylvania. The prize was a Nathaniel Currier print of President James Knox Polk from the pre-Civil War period. It was part of that series of prints done by Currier showing the Presidents. The print was in its original frame and looked nice except that the auctioneer had it lumped into a big box of junk prints from the 1950s. So we waited and watched, and so did everyone else. It was not a great sale, so folks were chasing after every lot of potential value. In the middle of the morning, I watched a dealer walk up and rifle through the prints. Next thing I notice, the frame is empty! I

Turns out that a potential buyer was emailing people saying that he had “talked to the auctioneer� and a certain prize item in the sale was badly damaged. My friend had never heard of this guy, and the piece was perfect. It was an example of how the Internet, in particular, has become a place for all sorts of such shenanigans.

This week’s item is a J & J Taylor Lightweight/ Traveling Safe, dating from 1870-1900. It’s 20 by 22 by 30 inches. James and John Taylor, both brothers, emigrated to Toronto in the 1850s and in 1855 established the first Canadian safe making business, in Palace Street,



became an extension of Front Street, and 27 Palace Street became 107 Front Street East, occupied by McMillan and Williams, Flour and Feed. Sometime before 1903 street numbering on Front Street East was changed and number 107, on the southeast corner

of George Street, was renumbered as 129 Front Street East. Such safes were often used for valuables and important papers when traveling abroad or from state to state within America. Value: $200 to $300.

The Original York Antiques Show “The Original 158th Semiannual York Antiques Show And Sale� is scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, February 3, 4 and 5, 2012 at Memorial Hall East, located within the York Fairgrounds Convention and Expo Center in downtown York, Pennsylvania. This extremely popular event will feature 96 carefully-screened exhibitors in room settings offering a truly impressive and outstanding variety of antiques. According to show manager Melvin L. Arion, the merchandise at York will run the full gamut, including 18th- and 19th-century period American and English furniture, as well as country pieces in original paint, fine early porcelain and pottery such as Chinese Export and Staffordshire, Oriental carpets, quilts, hooked rugs, samplers, and other textiles, to estate jewelry, Native American pottery and weavings, early kitchen and fireplace items, and much more. Arion does an exceptionally good job of making certain the scope of the merchandise offered will be as broad as possible so that just about any visitor can find a “new� treasure!

In addition, all major credit cards will be accepted. Visiting this show, considered by many to be one of the premier antiquing events in the midAtlantic region, is the perfect antidote to the post-holiday, mid-winter blahs! Because of the continuing success of this York show, there’s little dealer turnover, giving visitors the chance to really get to know the dealers from whom they’re buying. However, due to the recent retirement of a couple of the participants, two exhibitors will be returning to York, both having done the show at some point in the past: Robert Snyder and Judy Wilson of Wiscasset, Maine, and Don Heller from Portland, Maine. Show hours both Friday and Saturday are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is free. The building is smoke-free. Food will be available. Admission is $10 per person, $9 with this article or an ad. For more information, visit or call Arion at (302) 542- 3286 or during the show only at (717) 718-1097.

popular was this desirable shade of glass that even novelties such as bells, shoes, and rolling pins were made of it! In the 1940s and 1950s, both Fenton and Pilgrim glass factories recreated cranberry glass, not as reproductions, but as a revival of the collectibles from a bygone era. Though the pieces were “new,” that didn’t mean the same care and craftsmanship wasn’t put into their production. In fact, Fenton’s manufacturing process required no less than 26 artisans to create a single piece! Today cranberry glass is a rare and valuable treasure and can be found in many pat-

Morphy Auctions Opens Real Estate Division Headed By Dave Stewart Addressing the need for a jump-start in the current real estate marketplace, Morphy Auctions of Denver, Pennsylvania, has launched a new division focused on the timely sale of real property and contents, with quick settlement payouts to sellers. The division is headed by Boston native and licensed auctioneer Dave Stewart, who has been a Morphy Auctions associate for the past five years. Morphy’s will be conducting on-site auctions of homes and business properties and their contents under the Morphy Auctions banner, offering all of the marketing Dave Stewart, head of Morphy’s new Real benefits currently available to their antiques and fine art consignors. Estate division. Morphy Auctions image.

“We’ll create the same types of strategic marketing campaigns we’ve always used to publicize our antiques sales. This includes a strong emphasis on web marketing and listing on AuctionZip, which is the No. 1 site for onsite real estate sales,” Stewart said. A special real estate section will be available for potential bidders to peruse on the Morphy Auctions website. At the local level, 2 by 3 foot signs will be posted ahead of time on every major intersection in the vicinity of a given auction. Stewart said the benefit to an onsite real estate auction is that everything is sold, and quickly.

“We create an urgency to buy. A consignor’s house is sold with no contingencies for financing or inspection, although any potential bidder has the option of arranging for an inspection prior to auction day. The property is auctioned ‘as is,’ which is desirable to a lot of people.” Home or business contents will be sold country style, or via the “clerk on the fly” method in which items are offered as the auctioneer passes through the venue, room by room. Bidders will be required to present a pre-specified deposit in the form of cash, cashier’s check or personal check, with settlement to occur as soon as 30 days after the


sale. Sellers may be “pleasantly surprised” to see how much money they pocket, Stewart said. “Morphy’s will be charging a very competitive commission rate that is as little as 50 percent of the going rate,” he said. CEO Dan Morphy said he believes his company’s new service will be embraced by the community. “We’re offering a turnkey solution that will appeal to anyone who’s leaving the area due to job relocation, has inherited an estate or is in a downsizing mode, perhaps to enter an assisted-living facility. Our new division will

Morphy recalled. “I had been wanting to launch a comic book division in-house, and during that conversation with Brian, it became clear to me that the smartest and most direct path to our goal would be a collaboration with Sparkle City. They’re an energetic, extremely knowledgeable company with a tremendous database of comic book buyers.� “On the other side of the coin, Morphy’s has the physical gallery and marketing team to promote and produce successful live sales,� Morphy continued. “It’s an exciting combination that could prove very successful, given collectors’ insatiable interest in rare comics.� Morphy’s first auction dedicated exclusively to comic books will be a 700 to 800-lot event held either in April or May. “My goal is to have two, if not three, sales per year devoted exclusively to vintage comic books and also original comic book art, a subcategory that has a long collecting arc ahead of it,� Morphy said.

remedy those prior failings by bringing to light a variety of well documented examples drawn from private and institutional collections, most of which have not been previously displayed in a public venue. The Evanses will define and compare the terms counterpane, coverlet (coverlid) and white-work quilt (wedding quilt) by delineating the characteristics of each style including construction aspects, decorative techniques, and original usage. They will also explore the cultural background of the three styles including the overall and specific symbolism seen in each. By surveying original source materials

With the widely publicized $2.1 million auction price achieved recently by a rare copy of Action Comics No. 1, some investors are contemplating a shift of focus from gold and silver to paper. Vintage comic books - once considered a niche collectible for nostalgic boomers - have become a potent alternative to stocks and bonds. In recognizing this trend, Morphy Auctions in Denver, Pennsylvania, recently forged an alliance with the specialist company Sparkle City Comics, of North Bergen, New Jersey. Morphy’s, with the expert oversight of Sparkle City, will launch its new Comic Book division during a February 9 to 11, Toys & Advertising sale that features 200 prized comics from an original-owner collection. The top lot, a 1963 The Amazing Spider-Man No. 1 in 8.5 condition, is expected to realize $25,000 to $30,000. Other anticipated top lots include a 1963 X-Men No. 1 and a 1963 Tales of Suspense No. 39 featuring the first appearance of Iron Man. The association between Morphy’s and Sparkle City came about when the latter company’s principal, Brian

Embellished with a variety of stitched and woven ornamentations ranging from formal and structured to naĂŻve and whimsical, the examples included in the exhibit represent the diverse cultural tendencies of the region. By their very nature, these domiciliary works of art have been underappreciated in the larger discipline of textile collecting and study. This exhibition will endeavor to

like court records, estate inventories, diaries, ledgers and daybooks, the curators desire to present a compelling context for white work within the material culture of bed coverings in the Shenandoah Valley. The exhibition runs from February 1 to May 12, 2012. Plans are to produce an accompanying catalogue documenting the exhibit. An opening reception will be held at the museum on Saturday, February 11, 2012, from 4 to 6 p.m.

wrote, including his family life; his travels (to the United States and Europe); and his activity as a social reformer. Dickens was particularly concerned about poverty and prostitution, and collaborated with the philanthropist Angela Burdett-Coutts to address the plight of “fallen women.” Dickens’s fascination with dramatic performance, which manifested itself in his participation in amateur theatricals and public readings, and the impact of this interest on his literary technique, is examined in the exhibition.

Morgan through February 12, 2012, celebrates the bicentennial of the great writer’s birth in 1812 with manuscripts of his novels and stories, letters, books, photographs, original illustrations, and caricatures. Sweeping in scope, the exhibition captures the art and life of a man whose literary and cultural legacy ranks among the giants of literature. “It is difficult to imagine a novelist of greater importance in the English language than Charles Dickens,” said William M. Griswold, director of The Morgan Library & Museum. “His books are touchstones of literary history and his characters - from Tiny Tim and Oliver Twist to Ebenezer Scrooge and Uriah Heep - are some of the most vividly drawn in all of fiction. The Morgan is delighted to mark this important Dickens anniversary year with an exhibition that celebrates his extraordinary creativity and fascinating life.” “Charles Dickens at 200” will focus primarily on Dickens’s novels and their relation to his various activities and collaborations - literary, artistic, theatrical, and philanthropic - from The Pickwick Papers (1836), his first book, to Our Mutual Friend (1865), the last he completed. (The Mystery of Edwin Drood remained incomplete at the time of Dickens’s death in 1870).
