s 2020 fades, and with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I find myself in a season of reflection, contemplating the many things we have to be thankful for in a seemingly thankless year. To start, I am thankful for our staff, whose tireless efforts and adaptability as we transitioned to and from working remotely allowed us to maintain our usual full auction schedule. I am also incredibly proud that, while there were some sacrifices, we were able to keep our staff intact and employed during the height of COVID-related closures. I am also thankful to you, our faithful clients, as your continued patronage has allowed us to navigate our 73rd year of business. Finally, I am thankful that we were able to pull together such a diverse and well-rounded final cataloged sale of the year. In this Fall Sale, we are fortunate to offer several wonderful estates, including an eclectic Provincetown Estate, the Estate of Carl and Mary Breyer of central Massachusetts and the Kelton Collection of Marine Art and Artifacts. Rounding out the sale is a fine selection of material culled from collections and homes all around New England. I think we are all eager to get 2020 in the rearview mirror, but I am excited to report that we have a great start on 2021 auctions, with some wonderful consignments already in house and many more in the works. We continue to reshape our traditional auction schedule, and in 2021 we will hold our first Winter Marine Sale and winter/spring Paintings Auction. There is also some more exciting news to come regarding the expansion of our staff, offices and auction schedule. Thank you again for your helping us “survive� 2020. We wish you well and look forward to a more positive 2021.

Joshua Eldred President

AMERICAN SCHOOL 19th Century Portrait of two children and their dog in a bucolic setting. Inscribed verso “By Benjamin West Salem Mass”, believed to be an erroneous attribution. Oil on canvas, 34” x 42”. Unframed. 500/1,000

Accompanying notes and research indicate the painting was purchased in the 1960s by Virginia Bliss Keith of Somerset, Massachusetts, from antiques dealer Mason Cleveland, who had purchased it at an auction in Falmouth, Massachusetts. The work is compared with several others by or attributed to Joseph Whiting Stock (Massachusetts, 1815-1855), noting similarities in facial features, the stylized dogs seen in the paintings, and the roses held by the subjects. The inscription on the reverse could be an attempt to falsely attribute the painting to artist Benjamin West (Pennsylvania/ United Kingdom, 1738-1820), known for historical and allegorical scenes and considered to be the first American artist to gain international fame. Another artist named Benjamin West (Massachusetts/California, 1818-1854) was born in Salem, Massachusetts, and though there is little information about him, he is known for ship paintings rather than figural portraits, making it unlikely this is his work.

SAMUEL STILLMAN OSGOOD Massachusetts/California, 1808-1880 Portrait of Anna Quincy Thaxter Parsons. Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 30” x 25”. Framed 41” x 36”. 2,500/3,500 Provenance: Northeast Auctions, Portsmouth, New Hampshire, November 5, 2005, Lot #308. A New Hampshire Collection of Paintings. Boston-born Samuel Osgood painted this portrait of Anna after 1831. In 1830, Osgood, a former sailor, survived a ship afire 350 miles off the American coast. In 1831 he returned to Boston from study in England and started painting portraits there in earnest, submitting “Portrait of a Lady” in both 1831 and 1832 to the Boston Athenaeum exhibitions. Anna Quincy Thaxter Parsons was the daughter of Anna Quincy Thaxter (1791-1879) and Nehemiah Parsons (1773-1848), a former mariner and merchant on Boston’s Long Wharf. Anna was a clairvoyant, whose specialty was reading a person’s character, often just from a letter. She was also a women’s rights activist who regularly visited Brook Farm, the utopian commune in Roxbury, where some artists and many of Boston’s intellectuals lived in the 1840s. Anna and her mother and several sisters were early hikers in the White Mountains and they are credited with naming Cathedral Ledge, Echo Lake and White Horse Ledge, well-known sites in the area that were painted by White Mountain School landscape artists.

145

Anna was a friend of Samuel Stillman Osgood’s wife, the poet Frances Osgood, and their letters to one another survive. Sadly, Samuel and Fanny lost their young daughters within a short time. Fanny, too, died young. The family’s touching gravesite at Mt. Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts, includes a monument with a lyre with broken strings representing each lost soul. Anna is also buried at Mt. Auburn.

The Kelton Collection Eldred’s is pleased to offer maritime art and artifacts from the Kelton Collection over a series of auctions this year, including the thirty-nine lots presented here. Richard Kelton was intrigued by the search for speed and trade that happened between the United Kingdom, America and China in the 19th Century. An integral part of this trade were the ships that transported the goods and people, the “Packet” and “Clipper” ships, each vying to be the fastest. Known as the “Clipper Ship Era”, this period in history began in 1843 with the demand for rapid delivery of goods from China and England, continued with the demands of the California Gold Rush, and ended with the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. With these selections, we see an important group of Nathaniel Currier prints, depicting the most famous American ships of the period. These prints documented and captured their importance and preserved their history. The ship portraits by American, British and Chinese artists shows the different styles the artists used to portray these ships, often depicting them upon arrival in a specific port or coast. With the advent of the steam age many of these ships were sold, wrecked or broken up as they were unable to keep pace with the newer steam vessels.

The clipper ship Telegraph is seen here arriving at Whampoa for the first time, with Thomas Hunt’s floating home depicted at her stern. She was launched at the shipyard of J.O. Curtis, Medford, Massachusetts, for Phineas & S. Sprague & Co., Boston. In May 1851, under the command of Captain Kimball Harlow, she sailed from New York to San Francisco in 127 days, followed by a voyage in July 1852 from Whampoa to London. On December 1854, on a voyage from New Orleans to Europe, she collided with the ship Spark of the Ocean, just three days out. In the collision the Telegraph lost her main topgallant mast, foretop mast and jib-boom. The damages were repaired at sea and the ship arrived in San Francisco in 111 days. She was sold for $34,000 in 1856, then caught fire and was scuttled in January of 1857. Her hulk was raised and repaired and she was renamed Henry Brigham. After being sold two more times she was burned at sea in 1868.

351

The East Boston ship Agenor was built and launched in 1870 by Curtis & Smith for the Boston firm of E. Williams & Co. Her fastest passage around Cape Horn westward was 120 days from New York to San Francisco in 1876, and her fastest passage eastward from San Francisco to Antwerp was 113 days in 1882. She was laid up in San Francisco from October 1891 to July 1893 due to lack of business. She serviced the Puget Sound lumber trade but was sold to the American company Sale & Frazer in Yokohama. She was wrecked on a Kobe wheat run.

Kingfisher was built by Hayden & Cudworth at Thatcher Magoun’s yard in Medford, Massachusetts. She made six westward California passages out of Boston and New York between 1853 and 1864. In 1866 she returned to New York via Liverpool, which was then followed by three passages between Hong Kong and San Francisco. She was condemned at Montevideo in 1871, sold, repaired, and went under the Uruguayan flag as Jamie Cibils until broken up for scrap in 1890.

Built by Donald McKay (America, 1810-1880) for Enoch Train & Company’s White Diamond Line, the Staffordshire was one of the few clippers built for transatlantic packet service. On her first run in May 1851, she sailed from Boston to Liverpool in 14 days. In August of the same year, Train hired veteran clipper captain Josiah Richardson to take Staffordshire to San Francisco, which he did in a brisk 103 days. From there they sailed to Singapore in 51 days, Calcutta in 21 days, and then to Boston in the record time of 84 days, a pace that few sailing ships ever bettered. Staffordshire’s last voyage began at Liverpool on December 9, 1853, when she departed with 214 passengers, most of them Irish emigrants. On December 24 the steering gear was disabled and the bowsprit and foremast were carried away. In the course of repairs, Captain Richardson was injured, and on December 30 the ship struck Blonde Rock off Seal Island and sank quickly, bow first. A reported 170 passengers and crew were lost, including Captain Richardson.

WILLIAM GAY YORKE New York/Canada/England, 1817-c. 1888 Ship Pochahontas off the Skerries, circa 1859. Signed and dated lower right “Wm. Yorke L’Pool 1859”. Oil on canvas, 26” x 36.25”. Framed 30.5” x 40.75”. 4,000/6,000

Provenance: Captain William M. Cotter (1820-1859), thence by descent. Northeast Auctions, Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Hyland Granby Antiques, Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, 2002.

Provenance: By descent to Richard Brown Baker, Rhode Island. Northeast Auctions, Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Hyland Granby Antiques, Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, 2002.

Mounted in its original Liverpool frame, this work shows the Bolton off Point Lynas on the approach to Liverpool. The castellated light tower on the northeast promontory of Anglesey, with Parys Mountain behind, is visible under Bolton’s bowsprit. Records show that Bolton, under the command of Captain William Cotter, arrived at Liverpool from New Orleans, most likely with a cargo of cotton, on February 19, 1859. This would coincide with the date of March 1859 inscribed by the artist at lower right. Bolton was the last of 25 vessels built under the direction of Levi Houghton, founder of Houghton & Sons Shipyard. The ship was named for Houghton’s birthplace of Bolton, Massachusetts.

The downeaster Pocahontas is shown inbound to Liverpool off Skerries Reef and Lighthouse, with Carmel Head visible to the extreme left of the composition. She is flying a five-flag Marrayat Code hoist on her mizzen, reading 1st dp, 9, 6, 7, 4, the correct Marrayat signal for Pocahontas. She is listed in Fairburn’s Merchant Ships as a “well modeled, fast ship economical in operation. Although not a true clipper ship, she was so fast that she was often branded as one. She was a true downeaster though, a sturdy commodious carrier”.

WILLIAM GAY AND MARY E. YORKE New York/Canada/England, 1817-c. 1888 and c. 1854-1893 Schooner George Bailey off Sandy Hook. Signed lower left “W.G. Yorke”. Painted circa 1890. Oil on canvas, 24.25” x 36.25”. Framed 31.25” x 43.25”. 8,000/12,000

In the days before interstate highways, coastal schooners such as George Bailey were the primary mode of transportation and commerce between cities along the American Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts. Thousands of them were built, more than all other rigs combined.

Oil on canvas, 24” x 30”. Framed 33.75” x 40”. 5,000/7,000 Provenance: Vallejo Gallery, Newport Beach, California, 2003.

Built at Bath, Maine, George Bailey’s home port was Manasquan, New Jersey. In this painting the ship owner and master Captain Asher Curtis’s private signal is flown at the mizzen peak. A smaller pennant with the schooner’s initials “G.B.” is at the main and name pennant is flown from the spanker topmast.

This painting is a copy of an 1853 Currier & Ives print by noted marine lithographer Charles Parsons, after Duncan McFarlane’s “Dreadnought Off Tuskar Light”. A copy of this lithograph is offered in this auction as Lot #363. The painting style is in keeping with other works attributed to William G. Yorke’s young wife and assistant, Mary. The original signature on this work is a variation of “W.G. Yorke” that can be read as “M.E. York(e)”. This signature is recognized by several experts, including Sam Davidson, and is considered the collaborative work of William G. and Mary. A number of paintings attributed to Mary Yorke in the Kelton Collection are based on printed illustrations, leading to the conclusion that after William G. Yorke was blinded by an accident in 1882, she created paintings based on known prints. Dreadnought was built for the Red Line’s Atlantic packet service and became one of the most famous ships of her age. In her nine years on this run she made 31 voyages between New York and Liverpool, and she still holds the transatlantic merchant sailing record from Sandy Hook to Queenstown. Much of Dreadnought’s fame derives from a remarkable passage in 1863 when she lost her rudder in a gale. After two jury-rigged rudders were also lost, Captain Samuels ordered his second officer to sail the clipper stern first to Fayal in the Azores, some 350 miles away. Sailing backwards, the ship covered 183 miles in two days before the seas calmed and a third jury-rigged rudder was hung successfully. In 1864 Dreadnought left the Atlantic run and made her first voyage to San Francisco. She completed three voyages in the Cape Horn trade, calling at Honolulu and Callao on the return passages. On her fourth voyage to San Francisco in 1869, she went aground at Cape Penas on the northeast coast of Terra del Fuego. Although the crew survived, Dreadnought broke up on the rocks and was lost.

Carl and Mary Breyer Carl Breyer (1939-2015) and Mary Breyer (1944-2020) were avid collectors of 18th and 19th Century American furniture and oil paintings, accumulating their collection primarily during the 1970s and 1980s. Most of the pieces in the collection were purchased from Richard and Susan Raymond of Brimfield Antiques and from Dana Tillou Fine Arts. Other pieces were purchased from dealers at the annual Hartford Antiques show and at auctions. Carl Breyer's passion for American furniture and fine arts extended beyond collecting for personal enjoyment; he was also interested in preserving Americana for the benefit of the public. To help achieve this goal, he served as a Trustee of Old Sturbridge Village for many years.

According to accompanying research by Susan and Richard Raymond of Brimfield Antiques, Elizabeth Parrott Stephenson was the widow of Captain Reuben Stephenson, who died in 1759. Elizabeth was appointed executrix of his sizable estate, and an inventory of his property, signed by Elizabeth, exists in the Suffolk County Probate Records. Her signature is also on a document awarding her legal custody of the couple’s son. A handwriting expert believes the signature on the two documents matches that on these chairs.

SET OF FOUR TRANSITIONAL QUEEN ANNE SIDE CHAIRS Massachusetts, Mid-18th Century In walnut. Crest rails with rabbit ears. Solid fiddle splats. Slip seats with gold print upholstery. Cabriole front legs end in pad feet. Turned and blocked H-stretchers. Several signed “E Stephenson” on frames and undersides of seats, believed to be the signature of owner Elizabeth Parrott Stephenson of Boston. Back heights 37”. Seat heights 16.5”. 2,500/3,500 Provenance: Brimfield Antiques, Brimfield, Massachusetts. Accompanied by the original sales receipt dated 1978.

Many pieces from the Stephenson estate, including most of the chairs, were destroyed in the Great Fire of Boston in 1760, and were so noted on the inventory, as was the money received from the fire relief fund. It is therefore surmised Elizabeth purchased this set of chairs, circa 1760, while furnishing a home for her and her son. Accompanied by research notes, letters and photographs.

Owners of independent workshops, the Willard brothers -- Benjamin, Simon, Ephraim and Aaron -- were some of the most renowned clockmakers in the early United States. The brothers were born between 1743 and 1755 to Benjamin Sr. and Sarah Brooks, and they lived on a farm in Grafton, in Central Massachusetts. It’s believed Benjamin Sr. apprenticed in horology and opened a shop, working out of the family home. Benjamin Jr., the eldest son, began making clocks around 1765, and his three younger brothers soon learned the trade. Simon and Aaron eventually moved to Boston and achieved professional and financial success, becoming the most well known of the four brothers. Simon patented the banjo clock in 1802, and his clocks can be found in the U.S. Capitol building. Three successive Willard generations also worked as clockmakers.

E. Ambrose Webster Massachusetts, 1869-1935 Lots 785-786

786

When Eldred’s originally sold this painting November 20, 2009, the painting was unsigned and in what was likely its original frame. Affixed to the back of the frame was a label that read “Cabbage Patch, Bermuda E. Ambrose Webster”. The frame has since been replaced and, unfortunately, the label is no longer present. After the 2009 sale the painting ended up in the care of Dr. John Driscoll of Driscoll Babcock Galleries in New York. Dr. Driscoll was a noted scholar and maintained a relationship with the Webster estate. The gallery handled part of the artist’s estate and exhibited this painting along with others from the estate in the 2016 exhibition, “E. Ambrose Webster: The Primacy of Color”, January 7-March 5, 2016. The painting now bears an estate-signed and authorized stamped signature to the lower right. As part of Dr. Driscoll’s extensive research, he thought that rather than Bermuda, as the original label suggested, it is possible this is a lost work depicting Jamaica that was originally exhibited at the 1913 Armory Show in New York.

CONDITIONS OF SALE 1. CORRECTNESS OF DESCRIPTION: Robert C. Eldred Co., Inc. (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. Payment in full is due at the time of sale. Any bills not paid in full within 25 days of the date of the sale will accrue interest at a rate of 1.5% per month. In addition, the purchaser may be subject to one or more of the following actions: a) Any and all legal remedies available to Eldred’s and its consignors by law including without limitation the right to hold the purchaser liable for the total purchase price; b) Immediate cancellation of the sale, with Eldred’s retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the purchaser; c) Resale of the property at public auction, wherein the original purchaser shall be liable for any deficiency, costs, and Eldred’s commission on both sales. At Eldred’s option, payment will not be deemed to have been made in full until Eldred’s has collected funds represented by checks, or in the case of bank or cashier’s checks, their authenticity has been confirmed. A buyer’s premium will be added to the hammer price to be paid by the buyer as part of the purchase price. 8. ORDER BIDS: Subject to these Conditions of Sale and to such terms and conditions as it may prescribe, but at no charge to the customer, Eldred’s will undertake to execute all order bids submitted to it by a customer who has established credit with said company.

Eldred’s shall not be held responsible for errors or failure to execute bids. A deposit of 10% of the total amount bid is required. TELEPHONE BIDS: While the sale is in progress, bidding by telephone may be allowed by the auctioneer at his discretion. A deposit of 10% of the anticipated top bid is required. Eldred’s shall not be held responsible for any failure to properly execute

such a bid whether it be due to equipment failure, loss of connection, or failure to hear or understand the bidder’s directions. 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. 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%). New York residents having purchases shipped to their New York address are responsible for NY state sales tax (currently 4.0%). Due to the 2018 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, residents of other states may be required to pay their state sales tax on purchases as we meet each state’s nexus requirements. Dealers, museums, etc. can apply for a Massachusetts number prior to the auction by contacting the Massachusetts Department of Corporations and Taxation, 100 Cambridge Street, Boston, MA 02204. 11. RESERVES: Unless advertised as an “Unreserved Auction”, all sales may have items subject to reserve (an agreed upon price between the auctioneer and the consignor, below which the article will not be sold). 12. COLLECTION OF PURCHASES: Delivery or shipping arrangements must be made within seven (7) days from the close of the auction for all purchases. All items must be removed from Eldred’s facilities within fourteen (14) days of the end of the auction. All items remaining after fourteen days may be subject to a $5/per item/perday storage fee.
