Featured Estates Property from Merino Hill, Monmouth County, New Jersey Samuel Gardiner Wright was a prominent Philadelphia merchant, gentleman farmer, and New Jersey politician. In 1810, he commissioned a Federal-style manor home to be built on his family’s 300 acre estate in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Merino Hill, named for Wright’s interest in raising Merino Sheep, became the Wright family’s summer escape from city life. Until the early 1800’s the Spanish government had refused to allow Merino sheep to be exported, thus the foundation animals raised at Merino Hill were some of the first of the breed in America. According to his daybook, Wright made his first purchase of sheep with “Mr. Dupont of Wilmington and others.” Wright, a member of the Whig party, was elected to the Twentyninth Congress and served from March 4, 1845, until his death in July of the same year. Upon Wright’s death, Merino Hill passed into the hands of his son, Harrison Gardiner Wright, and has since remained in the Wright family as a privately held historic home. Merino Hill was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.

Property from Ditchley, the Colonial house formerly the Virginia home of Alfred I. and Jessie Ball duPont Ditchley, a historic Virginia plantation, was formally the Virginia home of Alfred I. and Jessie Ball duPont. The estate land was originally given to Colonel Richard Lee, Attorney General of the Colony of Virginia in 1651. Lee’s son Hancock Lee built the first mansion on the property in 1687, although the original home would succumb to fire damage less than forty years later. The historic home currently standing on the Ditchley estate was built by Hancock Lee’s grandson, Kendall Lee, in 1762. The Georgian mansion is described by the National Register of Historic Places as “an important example of Tidewater Virginian Georgian architecture.” In 1789, the estate was purchased by James Ball and descended in the Ball family until it was sold to Cora Lee Carter Keane in 1920. In 1932, the property was purchased by Jessie Ball and Alfred I. duPont who had met at Ditchley while the estate was in her family. The duPont’s took pride in their Virginia home, restoring and refurnishing the estate with fine English and American furniture and decorative arts.

Property from the Estate of Palmer Brown, Merion Station, Pennsylvania Palmer Brown (1920-2012), of Merion Station, Pennsylvania, was a well known children’s book author and illustrator. He attended Swarthmore College and the University of Pennsylvania, but had no formal artistic training. Brown’s vivid imagination and beautifully illustrated stories captured the imaginations of children around the world. His most popular stories were published in the 1950s; they include Beyond the Paw Paw Trees and Something for Christmas and continue to be enjoyed over sixty years later. In addition to his literary talents, Brown was also an art connoisseur and collector of fine American Classical period furnishings.

Also including Property from the Estate of Andrew Ducsik, Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania and Property from the Collection of Bertha King Benkard, Long Island and New York City, New York.

H: 9 1/2 in. Diam: 9 1/2 in. Weight: 80 troy oz. note: One of only six known examples. Hailed as a master of his trade, and featured in multiple museum collections and exhibitions, Vitali is a fourth generation silversmith, who stamps his pieces with the hallmark once used by his father and grandfather: "UV." He has done work for Tiffany, Cartier, Movado, Bulgari and Steuben.

Charles O. Perry was an internationally renowned architect, industrial designer, and sculptor. One of his more famous sculptures, Continuum, is located in front of the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D. C. The Cassini sculpture is named after astronomer Giovanni Domenico Cassini (1625-1712), who believed that a planetary orbit could be along the intersection of a cylinder with a sphere. Inspired by this notion, Perry created a sculpture comprised of six such Cassini orbits at the same radius. Large scale, steel versions of the Cassini sculpture are installed at the Civic Arts Complex in Ringwood, Australia; in East Moline, Illinois; and in a few private collections around the world. $3,000-5,000

THE COLLECTION OF MR. & MRS. JAY MOYER, LEDERACH, MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA lots 351-582 Jay R. Moyer, a public servant and former member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, is a proud descendant of Mennonite and Schwenkfelder immigrants, who arrived on ships such as the "Good Ship Friendship," which docked in the City of Philadelphia in 1729. Jay's ancestor, Hans Christian Meyer, along with other early settlers from Switzerland and Germany, finally settled and helped to form the Township of Lower Salford in 1741, formerly part of the County of Philadelphia. Because of his Pennsylvania German heritage, Jay became particularly interested in the items used in the daily lives of the Pennsylvania German settlers: their pottery, iron, textiles, ceramics, painted and decorated furniture, wood carvings and of course, their fraktur. In fact, Martin Gottschall, one of America's most important fraktur artists, along with his brother Samuel, were schoolmasters at the small oneroom schoolhouse adjacent to the Salford Mennonite Church in Lower Salford Township, where many of Jay's earliest ancestors and family are buried. Jay has attended auctions for more than thirty-seven years and has made many friendships and acquaintances in the collecting community. Freeman's is pleased to offer the Collection of Mr. and Mrs. Jay Moyer at auction.

Terms & Conditions all property offered and sold (“property”) through samuel t. freeman & co, (“freeman’s”) shall be offered and sold on the terms and conditions set forth below which constitutes the complete statement of the terms and conditions on which all property is offered for sale. by bidding at the auction, whether present in person or by agent, by written bid, telephone, internet or other means, the buyer agrees to be bound by these terms and conditions. 1 Unless otherwise indicated, all Property will be offered by Freeman’s as agent for the Consignor. 2 Freeman’s reserves the right to vary the terms of sale and any such variance shall become part of these Conditions of Sale. 3 Buyer acknowledges that it had the right to make a full inspection of all Property prior to sale to determine the condition, size, repair or restoration of any Property. Therefore, all property is sold “ASIS”. Freeman’s is acting solely as an auction broker, and unless otherwise stated, does not own the Property offered for sale and has made no independent investigation of the Property. Freeman’s makes no warranty of title, merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose, or any other warranty or representation regarding the description, genuineness, attribution, provenance or condition to the Property of any kind or nature with respect to the Property. 4 Freeman’s in its sole and exclusive discretion, reserves the right to withdraw any property, at any time, before the fall of the hammer. 5 Unless otherwise announced by the auctioneer at the time of sale, all bids are per lot as numbered in the printed catalogue. Freeman’s reserves the right to determine any and all matters regarding the order, precedence or appropriate increment of bids or the constitution of lots. 6 The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer shall be the buyer. The auctioneer has the right to reject any bid, to advance the bidding at his absolute discretion and in the event of any dispute between bidders, the auctioneer shall have the sole and final discretion either to determine the successful bidder or to re- offer and resell the article in dispute. If any dispute arises after sale, the Freeman’s sale record shall be conclusive in all respects. 7 If the auctioneer determines that any opening or later bid or any advance bid is not commensurate with the value of the Property offered, he may reject the same and withdraw the Property from sale.

8 Upon the fall of the hammer, title to any offered lot or article will immediately pass to the highest bidder as determined in the exclusive discretion of the auctioneer, subject to compliance by the buyer with these Conditions of Sale. Buyer thereupon assumes full risk and responsibility of the property sold, agrees to sign any requested confirmation of purchase, and agrees to pay the full price, plus Buyer’s Premium, therefore or such part, upon such terms as Freeman’s may require. 9 No lot may be removed from Freeman’s premises until the buyer has paid in full the purchase price therefor including Buyer’s Premium or has satisfied such terms that Freeman’s, in its sole discretion, shall require. Subject to the foregoing, all Property shall be paid for and removed by the buyer at his/her expense within ten (10) days of sale and, if not so removed, may be sold by Freeman’s, or sent by Freeman’s to a public warehouse, at the sole risk and charge of the buyer(s), and Freeman’s may prohibit the buyer from participating, directly or indirectly, as a bidder or buyer in any future sale or sales. In addition to other remedies available to Freeman’s by law, Freeman’s reserves the right to impose a late charge of 1.5% per month of the total purchase price on any balance remaining ten (10) days after the day of sale. If Property is not removed by the buyer within ten (10) days, a handling charge of 1% of the total purchase price per month from the tenth day after the sale until removal by the buyer shall be payable to Freeman’s by the buyer; Freeman’s shall charge 1.5% of the total purchase price per month for any property not so removed within 60 days after the sale. Freeman’s will not be responsible for any loss, damage, theft, or otherwise responsible for any goods left in Freeman’s possession after ten (10) days. If the foregoing conditions or any applicable provisions of law are not complied with, in addition to other remedies available to Freeman’s and the Consignor (including without limitation the right to hold the buyer(s) liable for the bid price) Freeman’s, at its option, may either cancel the sale, retaining as liquidated damages all payments made by the buyer(s), or resell the property. In such event, the buyer(s) shall remain liable for any deficiency in the original purchase price and

will also be responsible for all costs, including warehousing, the expense of the ultimate sale, and Freeman’s commission at its regular rates together with all related and incidental charges, including legal fees. Payment is a precondition to removal. Payment shall be by cash, certified check or similar bank draft, or any other method approved by Freeman’s. Checks will not be deemed to constitute payment until cleared. Any exceptions must be made upon Freeman’s written approval of credit prior to sale. In addition, a defaulting buyer will be deemed to have granted and assigned to Freeman’s, a continuing security interest of first priority in any property or money of, or owing to such buyer in Freeman’s possession, and Freeman’s may retain and apply such property or money as collateral security for the obligations due to due to Freeman’s. Freeman’s shall have all of the rights accorded a secured party under the Pennsylvania Uniform Commercial Code. 10 Unless the sale is advertised and announced as “without reserve”, each lot is offered subject to a reserve and Freeman’s may implement such reserves by bidding through its representatives on behalf of the Consignors. In certain instances, the Consignor may pay less than the standard commission rate where Freeman’s or its representative is a successful bidder on behalf of the Consignor. Where the Consignor is indebted to Freeman’s, Freeman’s may have an interest in the offered lots and the proceeds therefrom, other than the broker’s Commissions, and all sales are subject to any such interest.

Premium shall be: 25% on the first $50,000 of the hammer price of each lot, 20% on the portion from $50,001 through $1,000,000, and 12% thereafter. 14 Unless exempted by law from the payment thereof, the buyer will be required to pay any and all federal excise tax and any state and/or local sales taxes, including where deliveries are to be made outside the state where a sale is conducted, which may be subject to a corresponding or compensating tax in another state. 15 Freeman’s may, as a service to buyer arrange to have purchased property posted and shipped at the buyer’s expense. Freeman’s is not responsible for any acts or omissions in packing or shipping of purchased lots whether or not such carrier recommended by Freeman’s. Packing and handling of purchased lots is at the responsibility of the buyer and is at the entire risk of the buyer. 16 In no event shall any liability of Freeman’s to the buyer exceed the purchase price actually paid.

11 No “buy” bids shall be accepted at any time for any purpose.

17 No claimed modification or amendment of this Agreement on the part of any party shall be deemed extant, enforceable or provable unless it is in writing that has been signed by the parties to this Agreement. No course of dealing and no delay or omission on the part of Freeman’s in exercising any right under this Agreement shall operate as a waiver of such right or any other right and waiver on any one or more occasions shall not be construed as a bar to or waiver of any right or remedy of Freeman’s on any future occasion.
