American Indian Art The Luther R. & Frances T. Zehner Collection Lots 1-86

Dr. Luther R. Zehner was born in 1923, and he fell in love with Native American lore when he was a young man growing up in Reading, PA. Wild West stories like the Lone Ranger and books by authors like Will James and Frank Linderman sparked his imagination. He was inspired by tales of adventurers and explorers who left the cities of the East and learned the ways and language of Native Americans, and that inspiration changed the course of his life. Dr. Zehner graduated from Juniata College and earned his medical degree from Hahnemann Medical College of Philadelphia. Upon completing his residency in Surgery at Harrisburg Hospital, Dr. Zehner married his college sweetheart, Frances Townsend, in August of 1949. Together, they headed for Standing Rock Reservation near Fort Yates, ND, where Dr. Zehner had received a staff appointment as a physician in the reservation hospital, and Mrs. Zehner had been hired to teach in the reservation school. Dr. and Mrs. Zehner fully embraced the culture of the Lakota (Sioux) with whom they worked. Dr. Zehner learned to speak the Sioux language, and forged deep friendships with tribal elders Alex Sage, Patrick Rattling Hail and Judge Francis B. Zahn. It was at Standing Rock that Dr. and Mrs. Zehner also met and became close personal friends with photographer Frank Bennett Fiske and he and his wife, Angela.

L.R. Zehner with Bob Tail Tiger’s family.

Dr. Zehner sought out the oldest members of the tribe, and recorded their oral histories, encouraging them to recount legends and stories and to talk about life before the reservation. He recorded their songs and drumming on audio tape and with a film camera, and interviewed the survivors of the Battle of Little Big Horn, who were by then in their 90s. One of the most thrilling moments of his life was going out to the Custer battlefield with an elderly Native American battle survivor who gave him a first-hand account of what it was like on that day long ago. Members of the tribe noted the passion and respect Dr. and Mrs. Zehner had for their culture. Dr. Zehner was also deeply aware that the legacy of the elders seemed to be slipping away in the busy post-war period. He began to purchase artifacts, documenting the history of the pieces in his journals and with his camera. He was particularly interested in pieces from the late 1800s and the early part of the Twentieth Century, and in items made according to the old ways by contemporary craftspeople. In July of 1950, Luther and Frances Zehner

were adopted into the Sioux tribe in a formal ceremony. Frank Fiske took photos of them dressed in full authentic ceremonial clothing. Custer battle survivor Spotted Bear “gave” Dr. Zehner his tribal name so that Luther became “Spotted Bear.” Frances Zehner’s new name translated as “Morning Star.” Dr. and Mrs. Zehner were later transferred to serve at Fort Defiance (AZ) before returning to Pennsylvania. Dr. Zehner set up medical practice in Meadville, PA in 1956 and practiced as a surgeon and general practitioner until his retirement in 1997. Mrs. Zehner taught for many years in the Meadville public schools and was very active with the American Association of University Women. Frances Townsend Zehner passed away in 2009 at age 89, and Luther R. Zehner died at age 90 in 2013. He passed away just three weeks after a Native American delegation came to the nursing home where he resided to honor his birthday with drumming and dancing. The Zehner Collection has been out of sight for over sixty years, stored in their home. This collection includes beadwork, ceremonial costumes, pottery, bows and arrows and tools that the Zehners collected during their time in the West. By Gail Z.

178 131914/3 Silver bullion tassel, spangled bullion stars, bullion fringe and wool from Abraham Lincoln’s funeral train 1865 Walnut shadow box contains tassel, three stars, bullion fringed black crepe wool, and wool with self-fringe; together with a printed mourning ribbon bearing the initials “U.S.M.R.R. Alexandria, VA” and a portrait of a beardless Abraham Lincoln. H: 15 1/2 in. W: 11 1/4 in. provenance: Sidney D. King, West Pittston, Pennsylvania. note: Lot accompanied by letter, dated February 16, 1902, by King in which he describes the building of a railroad car for the use of President Lincoln: “The car was built by the authorities of the U.S. Military R.R. a name which covered parts of the Manassas Gap, the Loudon and Hampshire and the Orange and Alexandria railroads which were confiscated by the government. The headquarters, roundhouse, carshops and machine shops were inside the stockade at Alexandria, VA and under the charge of Colonel D.C. MacCallum. I was assistant M.C.B. at that time, was in the shops constantly while the car was being built....It was really magnificent and every available convenience was used....When the car made its first real journey, that from Washington to Springfield bearing the dead body of the President to its final resting place, it was elaborately draped in black cloth with silver bullion fringe, silver spangled stars and large silver tassels about nine inches long and three in diameter. There were also many black tassels used about the biers on which rested the two coffins (the president’s and that of his son Tad). These funeral trappings were removed on the return of the car to Alexandria and divided up as relics. I got one of the large silver tassels and some of each of the other decorations and put them in a case made of the same materials as the car...It is to be hoped the plan for preserving the car may be carried out for it is a genuine relic of war time even if it did not go to the front and it seems to me the resolute self-denial of the President in not using it during his lifetime, and his one journey in it, when his wearied body was past the need for earthly luxury are stiking incidents in even such a notable career as that of Lincoln.” $10,000-15,000

The Coasting Bank Lot 285


98 www.freemansauction.com

285 132190/1 An extremely rare painted cast iron and lead mechanical “Coasting Bank” design attributed to charles a. bailey (1848-1926) for j. & e. stevens co., cromwell, ct, circa 1884 The painted lead figure of a baby with outstretched arms sits atop a sled, his legs straddling the coin slot; the sled plummets down a steep, cast steel, gold-painted track, held aloft by two poles stemming from the red-painted, rectangular base with openwork, geometric design flanking the cast iron title “Coasting.Bank”; the coin is deposited in a triangular cast lead receptacle, painted green with gold floral scrollwork. H: 5 3/4 in. L: 9 1/2 in. W: 2 1/2 in. provenance: Found in Peebles, Scotland. Descended in the family to the present owner. note: The “Black Tulip” of mechanical banks, the Coasting Bank had heretofore existed only in an 1884 illustrated catalogue. To the extent of our knowledge, this is the only known example of the Coasting Bank and consequently, is the first of its kind to be offered at auction. In his article “Coasting Bank,” Hobbies Magazine, April 1955, F.H. Griffith chronicles William J. Stackhouse’s discovery of an illustration and description of the Coasting Bank on page 426 of Ehrick’s Fashion

Quarterly, Volume X, No. 4, Winter 1884 (see previous page and inside back cover). According to Griffith, “this bank is not known to be in any collection and the catalog offers us our first information about it.” Although there is no patent information available for the Coasting Bank, certain strikingly conspicuous features warrant an attribution to the illustrious bank designer Charles A. Bailey. Bailey worked for J. & E. Stevens Company from the 1880s to about 1915 when he established himself as an independent designer and manufacturer. He is responsible for many great mechanical banks, including the rare Bismark Pig Bank and the Germania Exchange Bank, both featured alongside the Coasting Bank in the aforementioned advertisement. Bailey had a known penchant for utilizing lead or white metal; the Coasting Bank’s cast lead figure, therefore, serves to reaffirm the attribution. Given their similarities in general action and overall design— especially with regards to the cast floral scroll work present on both triangular coin receptacles—, this bank might have served as the predecessor to the “Shoot the Chute” mechanical bank designed by Charles A. Bailey for J. & E. Stevens Co. in 1906. $30,000-50,000

He designated about $7 million to the foundation of “a college for poor white orphans,” and Girard College opened in 1848. In her letter, Rudulph notes that “Cooke might have made contact with Girard either in Philadelphia or in New Orleans.” She also notes that the “tie in the portrait is identical to the one worn by Girard in a portrait reproduced in the “History of Philadelphia” by Ellis Paxson Oberholtzer Vol. II p. 16.” $6,000-8,000

630 122226/1 1 piece. Holograph Manuscript. [Hopkinson, Francis, strongly attributed to.] [Allegorical Poem] “Astronomy.” [Ca 1785-1790.] 4 leaves (incl ms title leaf), quire of watermarked (likely French) paper with period staples; some creasing along gutters & edges, the bottom 2/3 of the 3rd leaf has been excised with no loss to the ms verse. Also titled “Astronomy” at head of 2nd leaf recto above beginning of the poem, constituting 118 lines in heroic couplets + 2 lines that have been crossed out & several corrections. A few small areas of paper loss just touching a few words of the ms. The conceit of this allegorical and sometimes satirical unpublished poem compares the break of the colonies from England to a cosmological theory advanced by the Comte de Buffon that the planets of our solar system were formed when a comet collided with the sun. The poet extends this conceit to George Washington,

referring to him as “our sun,” and to the “federalist race” as sprung from him. A close analysis of the hand responsible for the above manuscript reveals telling similarities to the slant & formation of letters characteristic of known examples of Francis Hopkinson’s hand, although, as a literary manuscript, executed in a somewhat more studied hand than his correspondence. No obvious signs of forgery can be detected here. See America’s Memory of the Thomas Jefferson Papers, Series 1, Francis Hopkinson to Thomas Jefferson, Jan 4, 1784 for a record of discussions between Hopkinson & Jefferson on Buffon’s theories. Buffon’s subsequent unfavorable view of American flora & fauna alienated Jefferson, whose anger may have led Hopkinson to abandon publication of this poem. $3,000-5,000

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.

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.
