Is

there anything better than summer on Cape Cod?

In these long summer days, when the sun sets over the marsh across the street from us, we are reminded how lucky we are to offer world-class auction service, right here on Cape Cod. This sale includes so much that is quintessentially representative of Cape Cod: a copper sperm whale weather vane from Nantucket, dozens of painted scenes of this breathtaking peninsula done by members of the art community that has flourished here for a century, and a prominent collection of John F. Kennedy material, including the pen he used to sign the order establishing the Cape Cod National Seashore. And just like the Cape has so many visitors from far-flung places, this auction also includes items from across the country and around the globe, most notably the important Folk Art & Americana Collection of Carl and Sonia Schmitt, of Walla Walla, Washington, and items from the Estate of Minor Myers, Jr., of Mystic, Connecticut. Whether you are just down the street or hundreds of miles away, we hope you will visit us this summer for our Americana Auction. We’d love to see you and show you our little piece of Cape Cod.

They

were, first and foremost, wonderful people – tall, imposing, energetic, enthusiastic, curious and knowledgeable, with big smiles and throaty laughs. I met them in May of 1986 at a sale of Americana and American folk art at Sotheby’s. For some inexplicable reason, I thought Sonia’s name was Ursula – which I called her, repeatedly, through our walk-about the Americana exhibition. Finally, with a big smile, Carl said, “Nancy, why are you calling Sonia ‘Ursula’???”. Big laughs all around. We became friends. They had retired to Walla Walla, Washington – just the sound of Walla Walla was exotic, something I had never encountered before. In fact, Carl seemed to me to be the very embodiment of a frontier man from the Pacific Northwest. They both seemed larger than life – radiating warmth and enthusiasm. They were fascinated and reverential and proud of the history of American creativity, artistry and inventiveness. They loved and were serious collectors of antique cars. And they loved serious antique Americana. They traveled to the East Coast, attending auctions and visiting dealers who presented the material they loved. They were captivated by American 19th Century weather vanes – a molded copper “Goddess of Liberty” made at the Cushing and White Company of Waltham, Massachusetts was purchased in 1986, one of their first acquisitions, followed by a majestic, anatomically correct carved wooden sperm whale weather vane from Nantucket. The Schmitts loved many more categories of Americana. They collected 19th Century fire memorabilia, cigar store figures, gameboards, folk art portraits, schoolgirl samplers, political banners and advertising posters. In addition to Carl and Sonia’s love of 19th Century Americana art and artifacts, they treasured the richness of America’s natural world. They founded the Blue Mountain Trust, to preserve the farmland and forest around their retirement home in Walla Walla, and while living in California, they explored the California coastline from Monterey to Mendocino – developing a special interest in marine life and history. This interest started the Schmitts

collecting an extraordinary group of marine art – treasures within this category are a ship’s figurehead in the form of a winged mermaid, from the school of renowned Philadelphia carver William Rush; Nantucket baskets; sailor’s valentines; a China trade painting depicting the anchorage at Whampoa; and an extraordinary group of scrimshaw articles including a 19th Century whale’s tooth engraved by James A. Bute while he served aboard Charles Darwin’s H.M.S. Beagle. There are panbone plaques engraved with whaling vessels, yarn-winding swifts, elegant whalebone baskets, bodkins and pie crimpers, and a beautiful lap desk, executed in 1840, for Captain Douglas, inlaid in ivory with an American eagle, stars and patriotic motifs. Finally, there is a splendid group of children’s toys, even a doll’s bedstead fashioned from whalebone. A feeling of excitement and joy and knowledge and discernment is palpable in the Schmitt’s collection of Americana and Marine Art.

Judith Foster Saunders and Clementina Beach opened their academy in Dorchester around 1803, one of many such schools that opened in the Late 18th and Early 19th Centuries. Saunders had already operated a school in Gloucester and was known for her exceptional skill in teaching needlework. The school ran until about 1834, possibly longer, and advertised for enrollment consistently through 1827. An 1810 census indicates forty people resided in the school’s home at the corner of Adams and East Streets in Dorchester. Saunders & Beach was noteworthy for the silk embroideries created by its students, some of which are in the permanent collections of Winterthur and Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts.

1018. CARVED AND PAINTED WOODEN BAND ORGAN FIGURE Paris, Circa 1900 By the Ludovic Gavioli Company. Made for the band organ used at the Hippodrome Carousel in Revere Beach, Massachusetts. Full figure of a standing woman dressed in a parade uniform with her right arm raised in a salute and her left hand reaching downward and clutching a baton decorated with American flags. Figure stands on its original round painted wooden base. Original base mounted some time ago to an old square base painted black. Figure retains its amazing untouched original surface and has exquisitely rendered details throughout. The uniform consists of a three-corner hat topped with carved feathers, a jacket with original lime-green paint and beautifully articulated collar, sleeves and buttons, epaulets at the shoulders suspending multiple carved rope patterns that loop around the figure’s chest, white gloves, tight white pants, and beige high-heeled boots with scalloped tops and carved hanging tassels. The jacket, pants and boots all have elaborate and magnificently executed gold leaf patterns which add to the visual interest of the piece. The life-like precision of the piece is enhanced by its delicately carved facial features, painted rosy cheeks, and wrinkles in the clothing at elbows, waist and knees. Height of figure and original base 37.13”. Overall height inclusive of added base 42.75”. Width at base 10”. Depth at base 10.5”. 20,000/30,000 Provenance: Hyland Granby Antiques, January 30, 2007.

Ludovic Gavioli (1786-1875), considered one of the greatest of all band organ makers, founded the Societe Gavioli et Cie. He worked in Modena, Italy before moving to Paris in 1845. Ludovic’s son Anselme (1828-1902) took over the business in 1863. Anselme’s son, Ludovic II (1850-1923), continued manufacturing organs until 1912, when the Gavioli Company closed its doors. The firm spanned four generations of family involvement, had more than 300 employees and operated branches in Waldkirch, Germany, London and New York. In A Pictorial History of the Carousel by Frederick Fried (N.Y.: Bonanza Books, 1954) there are photographs of two Gavioli band organs mounted with figures similar to this example. Further information about Gavioli “French Fairground Organs” can be found in The Golden Age of Automatic Musical Instruments by Arthur A. Reblitz (N.H.: Mechanical Music Press, 2001). The Hippodrome Carousel in Revere was built in 1903. The carousel platform originally had three horses abreast but was later extended to accommodate five horses abreast, a configuration unique to this carousel. The carousel was equipped with a Gavioli organ on which this figure was mounted. The Hippodrome Carousel operated until May 1973.

1032. DENT 30-DAY ASTRONOMICAL REGULATOR #1277 CLOCK Circa 1860 Very clean and almost futuristic in its appearance. Retains its original delicate ebonized case with glazed panels on the top, sides and front. Front panel aperture has a swing-over brass dust cap, allowing the clock to be wound through the case, thus keeping out impurities in the air. Three brass mounting screws and a threaded brass key locks the glazed portion of the case to its backboard and bottom support. Original silvered beat scale mounted to backboard. Astronomical format dial with outer minutes ring enclosing subsidiary seconds and hour dials. Magnificent Dent movement with beautifully finished damascened plates with chamfered top corners. External deadbeat escapement with jeweled pallets. Stop-work is provided and the wheelwork has five crossings. The long crotch is split to avoid damage. Has beat regulation and the pallets are protected by stop pins. Retains its original “Dent style” mercury-filled steel canister pendulum with steel pointer. Typical of Dent pendulums, this example is fitted with a brass ring that can slide up the pendulum rod to help as a fine regulation adjustment. Also retains its original “Dent style” pulley and weight. Dent 8-day regulator clocks are quite rare and desirable; 30-day versions are even rarer and more prized. This clock was so accurate that at one point it was used as a master clock and was provided with electrical contacts used to send signals to slave clocks. This system was dismantled when the clock returned to normal regulator use. Height 57.75”. Width 12”. Depth 8.88”. 18,000/25,000 Provenance: Hyland Granby Antiques, February 14, 2002. Edward John Dent (1790-1853), credited with more significant innovations than almost any clockmaker of the 19th Century, is regarded as one of the greatest horologists of all time. His most famous achievement was the clock for Westminster Tower, fondly referred to as “Big Ben”. After learning the trade from his cousin, master watchmaker Richard Rippon, Dent founded his own company in 1814. The firm’s reputation for accurate chronometers earned it commissions from the Royal Navy, Robert FitzRoy, captain of the H.M.S. Beagle during Darwin’s famed explorations, and David Livingston, who took a Dent chronometer on his explorations of Africa. In 1814 Dent constructed the first Standard Astronomical Clock for the Admiralty. He and his firm would go on to supply Standard Clocks throughout the 19th Century to Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Belgium, Russia, Japan, the United States and the Royal Observatory at Greenwich, which was used to keep “Greenwich Mean Time”, the time to which all others in the British Empire were referred. Edward John Dent died in 1853 and the business was inherited by his two stepsons, Richard and Frederick. The two brothers and their descendants continued the Dent business separately and competitively until 1920, when they merged to form E. Dent & Co. Ltd. More information on Dent and similar regulator clocks can be found in “Edward John Dent” by Vaudrey Mercer (The Antiquarian Horological Society, 1977).

Cushing & Sons “Catalogue No. 9” lists an identical Grasshopper weather vane on page 17. The catalog listing indicates the form was number 410 and was copyrighted in 1883. Provenance: Sotheby’s Important Americana Auction, June 22, 1992, Lot #47.

A gilded grasshopper weather vane by coppersmith Shem Drowne has sat atop Boston’s Faneuil Hall since 1742, an enduring emblem of the city. Although numerous legends on its history and symbolism exist, the most probable is that it was modeled after the grasshopper weather vane that tops London’s Royal Exchange, built in 1565 by Sir Thomas Gresham, whose coat of arms incorporates a grasshopper. As the Royal Exchange helped London become the center of international finance, the grasshopper motif became a symbol of commerce. By topping Faneuil Hall with a grasshopper weather vane, Peter Faneuil was probably intending to attract the same spirit of commerce to his city and his new marketplace. The design was then replicated by later manufacturers, including L.W. Cushing. The weather vane manufacturer that became Cushing & White, then L.W. Cushing & Sons, was founded by Alvin L. Jewell in 1852. A.L. Jewell & Co. operated in Waltham, Massachusetts until Jewell’s accidental death in 1867. The company, including its molds, and patents, was then purchased at auction by Leonard W. Cushing and Stillman White for the purported sum of $7950. Under Cushing, who had been a civil engineer, and White, who had been a machinist, the company continued to thrive and the two added more designs to Jewell’s line. In 1872, Cushing bought out his partner and his sons joined the firm, thus the change in name to L.W. Cushing & Co. and finally L.W. Cushing & Sons.

Arrah Lee Gaul Pennsylvania, 1883-1989 Lots 1130-1136 Arrah Lee Gaul was an original member of the Philadelphia Ten, a group of female artists who exhibited together from 1917 to 1945. Gaul was born in Philadelphia in 1888, a member of a long line of Philadelphians whose ancestors fought in the Revolution. She studied at the University of Pennsylvania and at the Philadelphia School of Design for Women, where she eventually became the head of the art department. (The school changed its name to the Moore College of Art and Design in 1932). She was the first woman to have a solo exhibition at the Philadelphia Art Club, and her work was also on display at the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design in New York, the Beaux Arts Gallery in London and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She traveled extensively, often with fellow artist Jane Peterson, capturing landscapes and portraits of locals from Philadelphia to the Mediterranean to the Far East. Considered a guiding force in the Philadelphia art scene for many years, she was designated the official artist of the city’s Sesquicentennial celebration.

1219. SHERATON SIDEBOARD ATTRIBUTED TO THOMAS SEYMOUR Circa 1805 In mahogany and mahogany veneer. Top with satinwood banding along edge. Case with three drawers across top, all with cock-bead molding. Below the drawers, a central compartment is flanked by bottle drawers and paneled cupboard doors. Drawers with lion’s-mask pulls with circular wreath-molded bails. Tapered reeded legs. Height 42.75”. Width 74”. Depth 22”. 25,000/35,000

Born in Dorset, England, in 1738, John Seymour is believed to have spent much of his early career doing carpentry and repair work for the Axminster parish church and making furniture for wealthy landowners. He immigrated to the United States with his wife and six children in 1784, first moving to Portland, Maine, and finally settling in Boston in 1793. By that time, Thomas Seymour, John’s fourth child, was 22 years old and had been working as his father’s apprentice. The prosperous city’s elite were avidly seeking high quality items to furnish their luxurious new homes, and the Seymours, though they struggled to gain patrons for several years, eventually found great prosperity. As a port city, Boston also had ample supplies of exotic woods the Seymours used in their elegant and fastidiously crafted pieces. In the early years of the 19th Century, Thomas founded the Boston Furniture Warehouse and introduced new forms and techniques, including applied moldings and lyre bases. The business suffered during the 1807 embargo and the War of 1812, and John died in 1818 at a Boston almshouse. Thomas gave up his business in 1817 and retired in 1824. Source: Peabody Essex Museum

(hereinafter referred to as Eldred’s) has exercised reasonable care to catalog and describe correctly the property to be sold, but neither Eldred’s nor its consignors warrant the correctness of description, attribution, authenticity, or condition of said property. No statements shall be deemed such a warranty or representation or an assumption of liability with respect thereto, but are to be construed as opinions only. Bidders are encouraged to personally examine all property to be sold prior to the beginning of the auction. 2. Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered. 3. Eldred’s reserves the right to withdraw any property before the sale. 4. DETERMINATION OF HIGHEST BIDDER: The highest bidder accepted by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. In the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer may determine who is the successful bidder or the auctioneer may re-offer the article in dispute and his decision shall be final. 5. REJECTION OF BIDS: The auctioneer reserves the right to reject any nominal raise or any bid or raise which, in his opinion, is not commensurate with the value of the article being offered. At his discretion, he may also reject any nominal raise or any bid that he may determine as having a detrimental effect on the item in question or the sale as a whole. Eldred’s may refuse to issue bidding privileges to any person not in good credit standing with Eldred’s, or to any person who is deemed by Eldred’s in its sole discretion, to be disruptive of or harmful to established auction practices, either before or after the acceptance of bids or the fall of the hammer. 6. TITLE: Except as herein otherwise provided, title will pass to the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer, and the property is thereafter at the purchaser’s sole risk and responsibility. 7. PAYMENT: On title passing to the highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer, and subject to all the conditions set forth herein, such bidder will thereupon pay the full purchase price.

bidding by telephone may be allowed by the auctioneer at his discretion. A deposit of 10% of the anticipated top bid is required.

Any advice or opinions provided by Eldred’s or its employees are given strictly as a courtesy and are not a warrant of condition, attribution, authenticity, or description of said property. All bidding by telephone 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.

ABSENTEE BID FORM 1.

Please clearly print the lot number, the item description and the highest amount you are willing to pay. Please follow the bidding increments outlined in this catalog. Carefully check your bid form. Although we attempt to confirm the description against the lot number, bids are posted by lot number.

2.

All bids should be received prior to the day of the sale. Submitting your bids in a timely manner avoids the chance of a posting error. In the event of identical bids, the earliest received by Eldred’s will take precedence. All bids are kept in strict confidence.

3.

On the day of the auction, a member of our staff will act as your agent and bid for you, attempting to obtain the lot(s) for you for the lowest possible amount. If you have indicated the highest amount you are willing to pay, you should not be disappointed if you lose an item. Many times you will actually buy it for less than your bid.

Are you a new bidder with Eldred’s? Yes:

No:

If so, please also complete our Buyer Pre-Registration form.

4.

A 10% deposit is required. If you are successful, the amount of your deposit will be applied toward your invoice. If you are not successful, the full amount of your deposit will be returned promptly to you.

5.

A buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price of each lot, to be paid as part of the purchase price. The buyer’s premium is 20% of the final bid price up to and including $500,000, and 10% of the final bid price over $500,000. All invoices must be paid in full within seven (7) business days of the close of the auction.
