Property of a direct descendant of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, the contents of the Brick House at Coolidge Point, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts

In

1871 Thomas Jefferson Coolidge bought “… a wild promontory surrounded by the ocean”

known as Goldsmith’s Farm. The 116 acres cost $12,000.00, which is approximately $262,500.00 today. It has long since been known as Coolidge Point. Continuing a family tradition of civic-minded philanthropy and conservation, much of the land has been gifted and preserved. In 1824 Bostonian Joseph Coolidge, Jr. (1798-1879) visited Monticello and was introduced to Thomas Jefferson’s granddaughter, Ellen Wayles Randolph. They were married May 27, 1825 at Monticello and lived in Boston. Mr. Coolidge was involved in the China trade at August Heard & Co. His son Thomas Jefferson Coolidge (1831-1920), Jefferson’s great-grandson, was a successful businessman. He was involved in textiles, including the Amoskeag Mills in Manchester, New Hampshire, as well as banking, railroads, electricity, and the United Fruit Company. Like his greatgrandfather, he served as U.S. ambassador to France in 1892. In 1904 Coolidge retained his friend Charles F. McKim, of the New York architectural firm McKim, Mead & White, to design and build a summer home called “The Marble Palace”. It was known for its massive Ionic columns and was continuously used until its 1958 demolition. Among the contents of the Brick House, a former family residence on Coolidge Point, are furniture, rugs and decorative items removed from the Marble Palace, many of which are presented here. Thomas Jefferson Coolidge acquired most of the Jeffersonian armorial porcelain also included in this sale.

The Thomas Jefferson “J” Chinese Export Service Lots 49-72

Presented here are 25 lots of the storied circa 1790 Chinese Export “J” dinner service, long associated with Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), the third President of the United States. While historians have yet to discover documentation that links Jefferson to this particular pattern, the “J” dinner service is included in Margaret Brown Klapthor’s Official White House China (1984), considered the definitive guide to Presidential china patterns, and it has been on display as Jefferson’s service at Monticello, the White House and other American State Department facilities. Jefferson’s 19th Century descendants also firmly believed it was his service and sought to re-acquire it, a few generations after Jefferson’s grandchildren had auctioned off most of his personal belongings to pay down the $100,000 debt he had left at the time of his death. At the center of all the pieces is a gilt script “J” enclosed within a shield with a blue outline studded with thirteen gilt stars, surmounted by a knight’s helm set on a garlanded arabesque. The deep blue rims are trimmed with a gilt fleur-de-lis border.

New England tonalist landscape painter Edward Mitchell Bannister was one of the first American Black men to win an important national art award, when he took first prize at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. Bannister, born in New Brunswick, Canada, took a job at sea shortly after the death of his mother in 1844. He settled in Boston around 1848, where he became a barber and

learned to paint, though his formal studies were limited. Bannister often remarked that the judges at Philadelphia Exposition were so indignant a Black man had won they wanted to “reconsider” the award, but his fellow competitors upheld Bannister’s prize. The painting, “Under the Oaks”, was later sold in Boston for $1,500, a considerable price at the time. (Intriguingly, the painting has not been seen since the turn of the century.) Bannister’s reputation grew rapidly following the Exposition, and more awards and honors soon followed, allowing him to work exclusively as a painter. By 1869 or 1870 he and his wife had moved to Providence, Rhode Island, where they were prominent members of the Black American cultural and political communities. Bannister co-founded the Providence Art Club and was an original board member of the Rhode Island School of Design.

ELDRED Massachusetts, 1848-1921 In our opinion, probably a work by the artist based on the style of the piece, however, the work lacks a signature, marking or adequate provenance to fully ascribe it.

E.

AFTER LEMUEL D. ELDRED 20th Century In our opinion, a work made in the style of the artist listed, but not by the artist. Often used to describe a direct reproduction of an original work of art.

Ascribing Date of Origin If a date and location are included in a heading, it is our opinion the piece is essentially of the period and was made in the area indicated. The inclusion of the world “style” in the heading indicates the piece was made at a later date as an intentional reproduction of the earlier style.

All bidding by telephone is solely at the risk of the bidder. ONLINE BIDS: Eldred’s shall not be held responsible for any failure to properly execute bids placed online. All online bidding is solely at the risk of the bidder. 9. CONDITION: If for any cause whatsoever any article sold cannot be delivered, or cannot be delivered in as good condition as the same may have been at the time of sale, due to a failure or damage on the company’s part, the sale will be cancelled, and any amount that may have been paid on account of the sale will be returned to the purchaser. EXCEPTION: Eldred’s will not be held responsible for damage to picture frames or lampshades. 10. SALES TAX: All purchases are subject to the Massachusetts sales tax (currently 6.25%) unless the purchaser: A) possesses a Massachusetts sales tax exemption or resale number and registers that number with the company, B) is an out-of-state vendor who meets all the requirements of Massachusetts Department of Revenue GLC 64H 1(5) and Directive 89-10 and registers with the company prior to each purchase, or C) has purchases shipped out of state (with the exception of Connecticut and New York) directly from Eldred’s by a bona fide shipping agent. Connecticut residents picking items up in our Mystic branch or having purchases shipped to their Connecticut address are responsible for CT state sales tax (currently 6.35%).
