(sight) note: Godfrey Nicolas Frankenstein was born in Darmstadt, Germany in 1820, and emigrated to Cincinnati, Ohio in 1831 with his family, all talented artists. Subsequently the family moved to Springfield, Ohio in 1849. The gothic house depicted is believed to be in Newport, Kentucky and was owned by John D. Park (1894-1972) of Cincinnati, an attorney and developer of a large pharmaceutical firm. Godfrey and his sister Elizabeth lived in this home with Mr. Park and his family in the early 1850s. Mr. Park named his son after Godfrey in 1852. Godfrey painted landscapes, closely and carefully studied from nature, and portraits, such as those of Abbott Lawrence, Charles Francis Adams, George Ticknor and other eminent citizens of Boston(1). He was also a sculptor, one of the best known pieces of his work is the portrait bust of Justice McLean, now in the United States district court room in Cincinnati (2). Godfrey was an affable and honourable gentleman; qualities which together with his acknowledged talent, secured for him many warm friends(3). (1)Goss, Rev. C.F.

Pray, 1823’, in silk and chenille threads, heightened with watercolor on silk ground, gilt frame. H: 31 1/4 in. W: 37 3/4 in. (overall) provenance: Deaccessioned from a Pennsylvania Historical Institution. note: The needlework exhibits characteristics of Maine memorials in its use of oversized flowers in the foreground and river with swans in the background. The Pray name is fairly common in Maine. The Maine Census of 1820 records forty-two heads of households with the Pray surname. The initials on the eglomise mat, however, have not yet been matched to a Maine family. The frame appears to be of Philadelphia origin. John Pray (17741843), a victualler and wife Catherine Weidner Pray (17741840) of Northern Liberties, Philadelphia, and members of the First Reformed Church, had nineteen children; seven survived to adulthood. A daughter, Catherine, born in 1804, would have been nineteen years of age in 1823, may have wrought the needlework. Another daughter, Mary Ann, born in 1821, fits the initials, M.A. and could have been thirteen months of age in 1823. Mary Ann Pray, though lived until 1884. $10,000-15,000

358 Carved pine Seal of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts last quarter 19th century Carved with the figure of an Indian dressed in a shirt, leggings and moccasins, holding a bow in one hand and an arrow in the other, with the Latin motto ‘Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem’, (By the sword we seek peace but peace only under Liberty) inscribed in the banner. H: 69 in. W: 71 in. provenance: Before its removal this August, the seal hung on the exterior wall of a hunting lodge on the grounds of an estate in Meadowbrook Station, Pennsylvania. The property was originally owned by Thomas B. Wanamaker (1862-1908), businessman and owner of the progressive Philadelphia newspaper ‘The North American’ and son of legendary Philadelphia merchant John Wanamaker (1838-1922). note: The Commonwealth Seal portrayed in this large carving can be dated to the last quarter of the 19th century by comparing it to a variety of seals used by engravers of that period. The Massachusetts Legislature did not mandate the use of a single seal until 1898. John Wanamaker was very involved in the Financial Committee of the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition and it is thought that the seal may have been used as one of the many ‘Trophies’ hanging from the exhibition halls at the Centennial and purchased at the close of festivities. $30,000-50,000

(sight) note: Benjamin Henry Latrobe, America’s first professionally trained architect was born in England to Moravian parents. He received an extraordinarily rich eduation in languages, music, science and the arts. He traveled widely and served apprenticeships in architecture and engineering before arriving in Virginia in 1793. He moved to Philadelphia in 1798, and was commissioned to design The Bank of Pennsylvania, the first major structure in the Greek Revival style in America. In 1799, Latrobe began work on the Philadelphia Waterworks. He proposed the use of steam-powered pumps to bring water from the Schuylkill River to the Center Square. There his temple-form marble Pump House housed the steam engine that pumped water to a holding tank on the upper floor, and then distributed water throughout the city by gravity through wooden pipes. Center Square became a popular gathering spot and was used until the construction of the Fairmount Waterworks in 1812. The structure was demolished in 1828. Latrobe also served as Surveyor of the Public Buildings of the United States. He worked on numerous public buildings including the White House and the United States Capitol Building. This watercolor is one of the few extant drawings of Latrobe’s Philadelphia work. A comprehensive conservation report and extensive research accompanies the lot. $30,000-40,000

D: 17 1/4 in. note: John Heyl Raser was born in Mobile, Alabama in 1824. He studied art in Plainfield, Connecticut, as a boy, but his interest in chemistry and science led him to become a chemist. In 1851 he moved to Reading, Pennsylvania, where he opened two successful drug stores and painted as an avocation. He was involved in the organization of the Reading Society of Natural Sciences in 1869. In 1871 Raser sold his stores to devote himself to painting, creating portraits, marine scenes, still lifes, and landscapes, for which he is best known. He made a sketching tour of Europe in 1875, returning to Reading, where he established a studio on North Sixth Street until 1884, when he moved to Philadelphia where he opened a new studio on Walnut Street. He was a member of the Art Exhibition Gallery and the Philadelphia Art Club, and exhibited at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. Raser painted in the Catskills at Haines Falls and Pine Hill Valley; along the Schuylkill River; and in the Connecticut River Valley. He was a colleague of landscapist Frank Devlan and together the two artists taught and influenced a younger group of painters including Ben Austrian, Amos Gable, Edward Hafer, Jacob Miesse, Edward Howell and Christopher Shearer. Raser was a self-taught musician, reportedly playing as many as fifteen instruments. He died in Williamsport, Pennsylvania in 1901.

H: 29 1/4 in. W: 32 in. D: 15 1/2 in. provenance: The table was probably made for merchant Tench Francis, Jr. (1730-1800) and Anne Willing (1733-1812), daughter of Philadelphia mayor Charles Willing and Anne Shippen, at the time of their marriage at Christ Church in 1762. Tench Francis, Jr., a successful businessman and patriot contributed to the Revolutionary cause from his personal wealth. As a result of his actions, Francis was appointed First Cashier of the Bank of North America, and Purveyor of Public Supplies. In the latter position he unified Navy pursers which lead to the creation of the U.S. Navy Supply Corps. The table descended to their daughter Elizabeth Powel Francis (1771-1856), who married Joshua Fisher (1775-1806) son of Sarah Logan and Thomas Fisher; To their only child Joshua Francis Fisher (1807-1873) and his wife Eliza Izard

Middleton (1815-1890) of Middleton Place, Charleston, South Carolina, granddaughter of Arthur Middleton (1742-1787), Signer of the Declaration of Independence; To their daughter Maria Middleton Fisher (1847-1933) wife of Charles Brinton Coxe (1833-1892), of Philadelphia; and thence by descent to present owner. note: This card table has never been published or exhibited before. The ornamentation of this card table has been attributed to the as yet unidentified master Philadelphia craftsman, known as the ‘Garvan Carver’. This craftsman was first identified as the carver on a high chest of drawers in the Mabel Brady Garvan Collection at Yale University Art Gallery. His work is distinguished by graceful, fluid naturalistic forms: sinuous leaves, shells, vines and flower heads. The carving is especially distinctive at the leaf ends which twist and turn back on themselves; depth is created by groupings of fine parallel cuts. The apron of this table exhibits such leaves. The sinuous lines of the cabriole legs are accentuated with scrolls and elongated acanthus leaves ending in powerfully carved claw and ball feet. For two related card tables see Furniture Treasury, Wallace Nutting (1928) fig. 1022 and Sotheby’s Important American Furniture, New York, February 2, 1991, Lot 1442. $200,000-300,000
