Ruba Rombic was conceptualized by Reuben Haley, a former executive with United States Glass Company. He was inspired by Cubist art he saw at the 1925 Paris Exposition. The name is purportedly derived from ruba'i, a type of Persian poetry, and the geometric term rhombic, which means an irregular form with no right angles. The uniquely designed mold-blown glassware was first produced in 1928 by the Consolidated Lamp and Glass Company, with production continuing through at least 1933. The product line was sold at affordable price points at department stores across the United States.

TIGER IRON MATRIX SPHERE Western Australia Exhibits chatoyant tiger’s eye and black hematite. Diameter 6.5”. Weight 15.75 lbs. 400/600 Over two billion years ago, when tectonic plates shifted to form the Australian continent, deposits of red jasper, chatoyant tiger’s eye and black hematite were forced together under great pressure. The ancient ornamental gemstone, sometimes called “tiger’s eye matrix”, is the fascinating and beautiful product of these monumental geologic events. Because the physical properties of each of the three minerals differ so greatly, only an experienced lapidary has the ability to work this material.

William Faulkner (1897-1962), the American writer and Nobel prize laureate celebrated particularly for his contribution to Southern literature, was also a renowned sportsman.

the Nobel prize, frustrating the legions of reporters who were trying to interview him and antagonizing U.S. State Department officials who wanted to avoid an international insult.

CHINA TRADE PORTRAIT OF THE SCUDDER GIRLS BY HIN QUA Circa 1850 Accompanied by a circa 1848 1/6 plate daguerreotype of the two girls on which the painting was based. Family history identifies the girls as Hattie (1847-1862) and Eliza Scudder, daughters of Eleazer Scudder and Eliza Temperance Lovell Scudder of Barnstable. Although it was common for Chinese artists to paint portraits of Western subjects based on photographs, it is extremely unusual for the painting and the source photograph to remain together. Although the girls are wearing different dresses in the two portraits, the remaining details, including the stenciled floor, are nearly identical. Retains a portion of Hin Qua’s label affixed to the reverse of the period, most likely original, Chinese Chippendale frame. Oil on canvas, 25.75 x 21.25”. Framed 30” x 25.75”. 5,000/8,000 Provenance: Descended through the Rose, Shaw, Scudder and Converse families and consigned directly from the family.

JOHN HALEY BELLAMY Maine/New Hampshire, 1836-1914 Carved pine what-not shelf commemorating the Emancipation Proclamation and the Grand Army of the Republic, executed circa 1866-1872. Carved with a scrollwork border, a laurel wreath, a scroll inscribed “Jan. 1.st 1863”, a quill pen, broken chain links, and an American shield flanked by draped flags on poles. While unsigned, the textured dimpling below the inscription, the parallel tick marks throughout the scrollwork, and the execution of the other elements is stylistically consistent with authentic documented pieces produced under the direction of Bellamy by his firm, Titcomb & Bellamy of Charlestown, Massachusetts. Retains original metal hinges. Accompanied by a December 2017 letter of authentication from James A. Craig, a specialist in Bellamy’s work. Craig writes that apprentices made the original machine cuts on the piece, but Bellamy contributed the finishing surface cuts. Craig also writes this piece is the only known Grand Army of the Republic what-not shelf in existence, although it was long believed to have been part of Titcomb & Bellamy’s product line. Height 18”. 12,000/15,000

Elmer Stennes Weymouth, Massachusetts, 20th Century Lots 599-600

Elmer Stennes (1911-1975) built a reputation for making fine reproductions of classic American clock cases, but he is probably now best known for his involvement in two murder cases. He was trained as a cabinetmaker and began making clock cases fulltime in 1948. His production line included banjo, shelf, girandole and tall-case clocks, and his pieces were sold across the country. In 1968, following an argument, he shot and killed his wife Eva. Stennes called the Weymouth police himself, admitting to the crime. He was released on bond and went back to work while awaiting trial, branding his pieces from this time period with “O.O.B.” for “out on bond”. He was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to eight to ten years of prison, where he continued to make clock cases, using fellow inmates as assistants. The clocks made in prison were branded “M.C.I.P.” for “Made Case in Prison”, or possibly “Massachusetts Correctional Institute Plymouth”. He was released on parole in 1972 and was remarried shortly thereafter to Phyllis Means. The salacious story concludes in 1974 when the couple was shot by intruders while they were sleeping in their bedroom. Stennes died from the multiple gunshot wounds he suffered.

Charles Hawthorne teaching a class

THE PROVINCETOWN ART COLONY The concept of the art colony first appeared in Europe in the late 19th Century. It stemmed in part from William Morris and John Ruskin’s Arts and Crafts movement, which sought to focus on artisans and works made by human hands rather than machines. At the same time, Claude Monet and his band of “Impressionists” were reinventing the centuries-old practice of studying under a single master while honing their skills by copying works from the past. Rather than practice in the artificiality of man-made urbanity, they chose to paint “en-plein air” and translate their visions directly from nature to the canvas. As a result, students and masters alike migrated toward the countryside, specifically toward remote areas relatively untouched by the tentacles of progress, where the simplicity of the common man set against inspiring beauty and natural light provided the perfect subject matter.Vibrant artistic communities sprung to life, often revitalizing the local economy. Traveling through Europe in the 1870s, Boston artist William Morris Hunt visited some of these communities and became determined to translate the concept to his homeland. He repatriated in 1877 and founded the first acknowledges American Art colony in Magnolia, Massachusetts. Others soon followed in Cape Ann, Long Island, Connecticut and New Mexico. But it was 22 years later, on the outermost spit of land that comprises Cape Cod, that the largest and most successful of the colonies would rise. After study and travel in Europe, a then-28-year-old Charles Webster Hawthorne set off to found his very own school of art. Seeking the ideals of the great European colonies -- brilliant and natural light, relative isolation and an honest working class - he settled on a small fishing community at the extreme end of Cape Cod, the village of Provincetown. At the time Provincetown was a small but thriving fishing community comprised of aging whalemen and a growing class of Portuguese fishermen. When Hawthorne arrived the town was recovering from “The Portland Gale” of 1898, which had decimated the fleet and resulted in numerous abandoned buildings. Many of these buildings became the homes and studios of the artists who started to arrive. As the fishing industry rebuilt, the artist colony continued to grow. The two remain intertwined to this day. Hawthorne’s Cape Cod School of Art rapidly gained in popularity and reputation, attracting artists and students from around the country. The colony grew steadily through the first decade of the 20th Century but its most explosive growth occurred in the teens, when its growing reputation combined with artists fleeing the oncoming war in Europe. By the end of the decade, Provincetown featured no less than six art schools and saw the founding of the Provincetown Art Association, the Beachcombers and the Provincetown Printers. To this day, Provincetown has remained one of the most active and important artistic centers in the country, where artists and fishermen still share stools at the local taverns and tourists clog Commercial Street every summer, buying the latest creations.

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.

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.
