Retains sticker label beneath lid and to underside of base from Elinor Gordon, Villanova, Pennsylvania.

note: This teapot is part of a fifty-three piece service made for John A. Colby of Concord, New Hampshire. According to an advertisement/receipt that accompanies pieces from the service currently at Winterthur Museum in Wilmington, Delaware, the service was purchased from the merchant Yam Shinqua of Canton. For an illustration of this receipt and a saucer from the service see: Jean McClure Mudge, Chinese Export Porcelain for the American Trade: 1785-1835, University of Delaware Press, 1962, pg. 37, fig. 7. For an illustration of a related teapot see: Herbert, Peter and Nancy Schiffer, China for America: Export Porcelain of the 18th and 19th Centuries, Pennsylvania: Schiffer Publishing Limited, 1980, pg. 43. This version of the New Hampshire state seal was adopted in 1784 in acknowledgement of Portsmouth’s establishment as a major shipbuilding center during the time of the Revolutionary War. $3,000-5,000

64 148020/7 A rare and historically important Chinese Export porcelain “Order of the Cincinnati” plate circa 1785 The center painted with the hovering figure of “Fame” blowing her trumpet and holding aloft the beribboned badge of the Order of the Cincinnati, within a molded and scalloped rim decorated with blue and white Fitzhugh-type border. Diam: 9 5/8 in. provenance: Property from a Virginia Estate. Retains sticker to underside from Elinor Gordon, Villanova, Pennsylvania. note: The Order of the Cincinnati was founded in 1783 by Major General Henry Knox (1750-1806) to perpetuate the memory of the Revolutionary War and to preserve the friendships forged between American and French officers during those years. Often compared to the Roman Aristocrat Cincinnatus (519430 BC), George Washington befittingly served as the Society’s first president, and he was the

66

original owner of the 302-piece service to which this plate belongs. This service was commissioned during the first American mercantile voyage to Canton in 1784 by Samuel Shaw (1754-1794), a Revolutionary War hero and an original member of the Society. Its decoration incorporates Pierre L’Enfant’s (17541825) design for the Society’s eagle insignia. In 1786, Washington purchased the service with the help of fellow Society member Henry “Light-Horse Harry” Lee (17561818). Washington is known to have used the service in Mount Vernon as well as in his presidential mansions in New York and Pennsylvania. The service later passed to Washington’s step grandson, George Washington Parke Custis (1781-1857), and thence to his daughter, Mary Anna Randolph Custis (1808-1873), who married Robert E. Lee (1807-1870) in 1831. In 1928, Henry Francis duPont purchased those pieces that remained with the descendants of Mary Custis Lee (1835-1918). $6,000-8,000

65 148020/8 Chinese Export porcelain Famille Rose oval platter from the DeWitt Clinton Service circa 1796-1810 The central reserve painted with figures in a Chinese riverscape, the rim painted with eight Immortal figures flanking the gilt initials “DWMC.” L: 10 in. provenance: Property from a Virginia Estate. Retains lot sticker to underside from Sotheby Parke Bernet, New York. note: The initials “DWMC” stand for DeWitt and Maria Franklin Clinton. A United States Senator, Mayor of New York City, and the sixth Governor of New York, DeWitt Clinton (1769-1828) was a strong advocate for the construction of the Erie Canal and is consequently often called the “Father of the Erie Canal.” He married Maria Franklin (17751818) in 1796, and this service may have been ordered in commemoration of their union. note: According to David Howard, New York and the China Trade, The New York Historical Society, 1984, pg.113, the central decoration on this platter may be a derivation of that on a service made for the Van Rensselaers, as illustrated on pg. 68 of Howard’s book. $3,000-5,000

67 138088/154 A rare Chinese Export porcelain helmet-form creamer first quarter 19th century Painted under spout with emblazoned eagle with outstretched wings joined by arched banner inscribed, “Don’t Give Up the Ship,” suspending from his beak a ribbon inscribed, “E Pluribus Unum” and clutching leafy olive branch and arrows in his talons. H: 5 in. provenance: From the estate of a prominent Philadelphia philanthropist & collector. More information is available upon request.

note: On June 1st, 1813, aboard the USS Chesapeake, which was engaged in battle with the British HMS Shannon, the dying Captain James Lawrence (1781-1813) issued his infamous, final command: “Don’t Give Up the Ship.” The phrase appeared soon after in a Baltimore Newspaper, and just two months later was inscribed on a banner flown aboard the USS Lawrence, commanded by Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (1785-1819), who emerged victorious in the Battle of Lake Erie. The absence of any piece of Chinese Export porcelain bearing this particular Eagle with the “Don’t Give

Up the Ship” banner in any of the standard resources for American Market Export, suggests that this piece could be especially rare. A precedent for the inclusion of the now iconic American wartime slogan on a piece of Export does exist in the form of a flagon depicting naval battles from the War of 1812 on either side and a sailor holding a banner emblazoned, “Don’t Give Up the Ship” under the spout.

68 148020/11 Chinese Export porcelain “Mount Vernon” small plate circa 1805-1810 The border comprised of a berry and vine garland against an orange ground. Diam: 6 in. provenance: Property from a Virginia Estate. note: The northeast view of George Washington’s Virginia home, Mount Vernon, captured on this plate is likely taken from an 1804 print by Samuel Seymour (fl. 1797-1822) after a painting by William Birch (1755-1834). An oil painting by Edward Savage (1761-1817), entitled The East Front of Mount Vernon, circa 1787-1792, is also considered a possible source. After George Washington’s death in 1799, decorations on Chinese Export porcelain reflected the country’s collective mourning over the passing of its first President. This scene, as well as variants of it, appear with five known different borders. $700-900

Grant and his wife, Julia, and later passed on to their daughter, Ellen Wrenshall Grant Sartoris. This service may have been commissioned to accompany the Grant’s existing 315-piece service, which is of a similar palette but bears the monogram “USG.” It was ordered for them by naval officer Daniel Ammen (1819-1898) in 1868 and was delivered to the White House shortly after Grant’s inauguration in 1869.

81 141294/1 Attributed to Robert Edge Pine (British, 1742-1788) portrait of george washington (1732-1799), circa 1785 Oil on canvas, carved gilt frame. 32 1/2 in. x 24 3/8 in. (sight) provenance: Sold on behalf of a private British collector. Ex-Collection: Alexander Kardo Sessoeff, purchased New York, February 1952. According to John Hill Morgan and Mantle Fielding, “In November, 1927, Messrs. Kennedy & Company, of New York City, had a Washington, evidently by Pine, which had been found in France. This was sold to an American collector...” (88).

note: Believed to be the fourth portrait of George Washington by Robert Edge Pine, painted during Pine’s stay at Mount Vernon, April 28th to May 16th 1785. Could possibly be the “Fine portrait of His Excellency General Washington” as listed in “Scheme of a Lottery Authorised by Act of Assembly for the Sale of a Real Estate, and a large and valuable Collection of Paintings, Engravings & c. Late the Property of Robert Edge Pine, deceased,” Philadelphia, August 1, 1789. The son of renowned British engraver, John Pine (1690-1756), Robert Pine began working in London but suffered from a lack of recognition in his native country.

Pine befriended Washington’s neighbor, associate and intimate, George William Fairfax (1729-1787) and expressed to him his American sympathies. Consequently, Pine was introduced to Washington via letters from Fairfax in spring 1784 as a “worthy Artist” and a “true ‘Son of Liberty’.” Pine emigrated to America shortly thereafter, arriving at Mount Vernon in April 1785 with intentions of painting a non-commissioned portrait of Washington and with letters from notable Philadelphians, including one from Francis Hopkinson (1737-1791) in which Pine is described as “the most eminent Artist, in his Way, we have ever had in this Country.” During his stay at Mount Vernon, Pine is known to have painted portraits of Washington, as well as of Mrs. Washington, Frances Bassett (now Frances Washington), and the

four Custis grandchildren. In a letter from R.E. Pine to George Washington, dated 16 December 1785, Pine expresses his desire, “That the Pictures may meet with an endulgent reception has been my hope, and my ambittion, that they may be honour’d with some degree of approbation, by your Excelly and Mrs Washington.” On May 16, 1785, Washington, in reference to his sittings for Pine, writes, “In for a penny, in for a pound is an old adage. I am so hackneyed to the touches of the Painter’s pencil, that I am not altogether at their beck, and sit like patience on a Monument, whilst they are delineating the lines of my face.” The three additional known portraits of Washington by Pine bear a very strong resemblance to this example in so far as they present a 3/4 view of the President, facing left, dressed in his Uniform of the Continental Army with his right hand clutching a gold-tipped cane; a tent and the edge of a spear are visible in the upper right corner. The first is the Property of the National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian, Washington, DC; the second, is situated in the Second Bank National Portrait Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and the third is Property of Jack Warner and Westervelt Company, now on display at the Tuscalonsa Museum, Alabama. For additional provenance for these paintings and a discussion of Robert Edge Pine and his George Washington portraits see: John Hill Morgan and Mantle Fielding, The Life Portraits of Washington and their Replicas, Philadelphia: 1931, pp. 83-88. sources: Laura Simo’s Face-to-Face talk on George Washington, National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution.

Foster, Thomas Chambers: American Marine and Landscape Painter, 1808-1869, (2010). Foster notes that Chamber’s Delaware Water Gap seems to be based on an engraving by George Ellis after (Thomas) Doughty that appeared in a gift book “The Atlantic Souvenir of 1828...but typically Chambers...added his usual outsized sailboats...and exaggerates the pattern of reflections.” Likewise the treatment of the foliage are quickly, flatly done, “bright and brilliantly decorative.” $10,000-15,000

note: A native of Simsbury and Windsor, Connecticut, Eunice Griswold Pinney (1770-1849) was a rarity in so far as she was a remarkably educated young girl, regarded by her brother as “a woman of uncommonly extensive reading.” Though her work utilizes similar techniques and shares themes with that produced by schoolgirls, Pinney did not begin painting watercolors until her thirties. Her oeuvre reflects her maturity, relates to her life and experiences, and contains more subtle symbols and literary allusions.

D: 24 in. provenance: Private Connecticut Collection. note: Purportedly the final model submitted by Richard Morris Hunt in 1884 to the American Committee for the Statue of Liberty for the design of the Statue’s pedestal. The model matches a sketch of Hunt’s dated, “August 7, 1884,” at the American Institute of Architects in Washington, D.C., across which Hunt has written: “Make a Model of this!” In 1881, the Committee, organized to raise funding for the installation of Auguste Bartholdi’s Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, commissioned renowned American architect Richard Morris Hunt to design the pedestal. Incorporating suggestions from Bartholdi, Hunt’s initial design was for a pyramidal pedestal that was a staggering 114 feet in height and an amalgam of a fortress and the ancient Lighthouse at newworldencyclopedia.org Alexandria; due to monetary constraints, though, the final version of the pedestal was simplified and ultimately reduced to 89 feet. After much delay, the final pedestal was completed in April 1886. Correspondence dating from 1881 to 1901 between August Bartholdi and Richard Butler, secretary of the Committee, concerning the design and construction of the pedestal are currently in the Manuscripts and Archives division of the New York Public Library. $8,000-12,000

Diam: 8 3/4 in. note: An American artist known primarily for his Civil War drawings and illustrations published in Harper’s Weekly, Theodore R. Davis was commissioned by First Lady Lucy Webb Hayes to design a new dinner service for the White House that was inspired by American wildlife, flora and fauna. These “Turkey”oyster plates are dubbed as such because the wells and shells are uniquely positioned to form the outline of a turkey. Due to the popularity of the service and to its signficant production cost, Davis patented his design in 1880 so that the plates might be mass produced to meet the public’s demand.

Brown 1864 February 23d 1889.” Total Weight: 95 1/4 troy oz. provenance: By descent in the family from Mr. and Mrs. John C. Brown to Lieutenant General Frank Maxwell Andrews (1884-1943), great-great-nephew of John C. Brown and Neill S. Brown and one of the founders of the United States Air Force, thence by descent to present owners. note: John Calvin Brown fought for the Confederacy during the American Civil War, rising to the rank of Major General on August 4, 1864. Following in the footsteps of his older brother, Neill S. Brown (1810-1886), who served as the 12th Governor of Tennessee from 1847-1849, John Calvin later transitioned from law into politics: he was elected to the Tennessee General Assembly in 1869 and served as the 19th Governor of Tennessee from 1871 to 1875. His

inability to secure a seat in the United States Senate effected the close of Brown’s Gubernatorial career, and in 1876, he served as Vice President of the Texas & Pacific Railroad and later as President in 1888. In 1889, he acted as President of the Tennessee Coal, Iron and Railroad Company. He died in 1889 and is buried in Pulaski, Tennessee. The papers of John Calvin Brown, 1871-1875 remain in the collection of the Tennessee State Library and Archives in Nashville, Tennessee. John Calvin Brown (1827-1899) married his second wife, Elizabeth Childress Brown (1842-1919) on February 23, 1864. Based on the engraving to the tureens’ undersides, this suite was likely ordered or gifted to the couple in honor of their 25th wedding anniversary in 1889. John C. Brown passed away later that year. note: An impressive George III sterling silver centerpiece made by John Bridge for Rundell, Bridge and Rundell, London, 1809-1810, purchased by Frank Maxwell Andrews in London and descended in the same family as the lots on offer here, will be included in Freeman’s upcoming Silver and Objets de Vertu Sale on May 22, 2014. $8,000-12,000

note: Benton McMillin (1845-1933) served as the 27th Governor of Tennessee from 1899 to 1903. He married Marie Childress Brown, the daughter of John Calvin and Elizabeth Childress, in 1886.

Polk (President, 1845-1849) and her aunt, Former First Lady Sarah Childress Polk (1803-1891). Though never shy of suitors, Elizabeth married Confederate Major General John Calvin Brown in 1864, and their marriage day is chronicled in Annie Somers Gilchrist, Some Representative Women of Tennessee, Nashville, TN: McQuiddy Printing Company, 1902, pp. 12-16. Following the Civil War, the couple moved to Pulaski, Tennessee, where they had four children: Marie, Daisy, Elizabeth, and John C. Brown, Jr. With the rising political career of her husband, Elizabeth “filled her high position with graceful dignity. Her entertainments were frequent and elaborate…”(15). Active in the community, Elizabeth was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Episcopal Church, and served as president of the United Daughters of the Confederacy and of the Vanderbilt Aid Society. Subsequent to Brown’s retirement from politics, the couple moved around before later returning to Nashville, Tennessee. According to Gilchrist, their “mansion on Spruce Street abounds in beautiful works of art statuary, paintings, copies from the old masters, plate and sets of gold-chased Venetian glass brought from abroad” (16). It is very possible that these silver pieces on offer formed part of the impressive collection of “plate” to which Gilchrist refers. $1,000-2,000

Fleisher Gallery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1970s. exhibited: The Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, Elijah Pierce: Woodcarver, January 24-May 16, 1993 and subsequent national tour through October 1994. Illustrated and featured on exhibition souvenir magnets, and on the front covers of the exhibition gallery handout and public relations brochure. Illustrated New York magazine, June 28-July 5, 1993, pg. 19a in an advertisement promoting the exhibition’s tour stop at the Studio Museum in Harlem, June 13-August 29, 1993. note: According to correspondence from E. Jane Connell, Curator of European Art and Pierce Project Coordinator, “Horse and Rider has pretty much become the mascot for [the exhibition].

note: Under the instructional support of his uncle, Elijah Pierce began whittling and carving at a young age while growing up on a cotton plantation near Baldwyn, Mississippi. Disinclined to follow in the footsteps of his father, a former slave turned farmer, Pierce trained and worked as a barber, received his preacher’s license, and eventually relocated to Columbus, Ohio. When he opened his own barber shop in 1951, Pierce converted a room in his shop into a woodworking studio where he continually honed his carving skills. Pierce began receiving national and international acclaim for his folk art late in life: In the 1970s, he exhibited his work at galleries such as the National Museum of American Art, the Renwick Gallery, and the

Museum of Modern Art; in ‘73, he won first prize in the International Meeting of Naive Art in Zagreb, Yugoslavia; in ‘82, his carvings were included in the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s pivotal and large-scale exhibition Black Folk Art in America 1930-1980 and in that same year, the National Endowment for the Arts awarded him a National Heritage Fellowship. Though many of Pierce’s carvings are often religious in theme and spiritual in nature, his secular carvings bespeak a keen interest in his everyday community, contemporary culture, and American politics and history. He seemed particularly inclined to celebrate individuals who promoted and advocated for freedom, equality and liberty, whether it be those who fought for the rights of African

Americans (e.g. Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Joe Louis) or notable American heroes, such as the Kennedys and Paul Revere. According to the entry for this figure in the Columbus Museum of Art’s exhibition catalog (pg. 176), this carving has been identified as Paul Revere based upon the horse’s seemingly frantic stride and the figure’s style of dress, especially his hat, which bears a strong resemblance to the Colonial tricorn hat. Though the race of the rider has been called into question, Pierce was known to seldomly distinguish the race of his subjects, as evidenced by his similarly racially ambivalent depictions of Joe Louis and Abraham Lincoln. $10,000-15,000
