P RO P E RT Y F RO M T H E CO L L E C T I O N O F J A M E S A N D K AT H RY N A B B E James (1912-1999) and Kathryn Abbe shared a love for art, antiques and photography. Each had well-established careers, James, as a photographer and later as a well known dealer in Folk Art and Americana. He was known for his excellent taste and was a pioneering advocate for Folk Art, “The emphasis should be on the ‘Art’ and not the ‘Folk’ ” he would say. Kathryn, a photographer and an identical twin, is the author of several books; her work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries. Each had a great eye, and when they worked together, the result was often splendid. They liked the juxtaposition of one object with another and the effects of light and shadow. Our January 22 sale features some of the best works from the folk art collection that they built together. Starting the sale off will be a Black Painted Queen Anne Heart and Crown Arm Chair with a classic shaped and pierced crest-rail and graceful arms that shows more than 250 years of usage; it was made in Connecticut in the first-half of the 18th century (lot 1). Prominent among the pieces is a rare 18th century Polychrome Painted White Pine Countertop Figure of a standing gentleman (lot 18). A pair of early folk art paintings of twins, circa 1815, is powerful for the sitters stern expressions and edginess (lot 3) that brings to mind photographer Diane Arbus’s haunting work Identical Twins, Roselle, New Jersey, 1967. The Abbes loved carved and painted wooden and metal figures. A painted wood, tin and iron figure of a rooster (lot 4), probably used as a roof ornament, is a whimsical accessory to any home. A portrait of a Girl in a Rocking Chair by Asahel Powers (lot 15) is an excellent example of Powers’ work. As an untrained artist Powers had a difficult time making items appear to be anchored to the floor; the young girl appears to be floating.

Property of Various Owners

25 Painted Bellamy Style Eagle and Painted Bluebill Drake Eagle with banner and painted inscription: “~DON’T GIVE UP THE SHIP”

The central motif is that of large flowers and a twohandled urn, on a linen background. The same design can be found on five, possibly, six known samplers each attributed by design to the Elizabeth and Ann Marsh School of Philadelphia (1683 to 1784). This elite school was originally under the direction of Elizabeth Marsh and then, by her daughter, Ann. Each sampler attributed to the school’s students is of similar central design created by a different student girl, all, apparently, utilizing the Marsh School’s same art source material.

T H E CO L L E C T I O N O F D R . A N D M R S . RO B E RT I S B E L L It is an honor and pleasure for Keno Auctions to offer for sale the Collection of Dr. and Mrs. Robert Isbell. People collect for a variety of reasons; the Isbells assembled a fabulous Americana collection because of their passion for each piece. Over three decades they sought out the best examples of high quality Colonial American furniture and folk art using the criteria of quality, rarity, condition and provenance as their guide. Two examples of Queen Anne furniture, each from mid-18th century Massachusetts, rank high on the scale in terms of the Isbell’s standards. The Queen Anne diminutive mahogany table with rectangular drop leaves (lot 53), is constructed of the very best quality highly figured mahogany, with powerful, yet graceful cabriole legs. One of just a few Queen Anne tables in the world of this small size, it also retains much of its original finish. The CoxPickering Bonnet-Top mahogany high chest (lot 40) displays vertical proportions, a crisply scalloped skirt and shell-carved drawers and an impeccable pedigree; the piece descended directly from Timothy Pickering (1702-1778) the prominent merchant of Salem, Massachusetts. Philadelphia Chippendale furniture from the 1760s is well represented in the collection by two pieces, each purchased by the Isbells more than 20 years ago.

The rococo-carved walnut dressing table (lot 48) has acanthus leaf–carved front legs and central drawer with naturalistic shell and flanking leafage attributed to the well-known carver Martin Jugiez (d. 1819). A pie-crust tea table (lot 61) is another wonderful example of Philadelphia rococo furniture. The table displays a crisply cut scalloped top and well-shaped acanthus leaf–carved cabriole legs. The winsome Portrait of a Young Child in a White Dress and Red Shoes with Peach and Dog by Deacon Robert Peckham (American, 1785-1877) (lot 39) is a colorful pastel portrait probably executed in Massachusetts circa 1830. It survives with its original glass and frame intact. We also have a family reunion of sorts with a double portrait (c. 1828) by the renowned deaf-mute artist John Brewster Jr. Portrait of Marcia Bowman Winter (b. 1824) and William Drew Winter (b. 1820) of Bath, Maine (lot 52). It is serendipitous that two of their siblings, Sarah and Wealthy Winter, also painted by Brewster at about the same time, were recently discovered at the family homestead in Maine. They are depicted in another double portrait in this sale consigned by direct descendants of the sitters (lot 49, front cover).

The High Chest, of a desirable small size, great proportions, retaining its original brasses and finials, is a superlative example of its form.

The following lot comprises a portrait of Wealthy and Sarah Winter, sisters of Marcia and William Winter (whose portrait will be offered as lot 52). The present owners of lot 49 are direct descendants of the Winter family. Keno auctions is honored to offer these sibling portraits in the same auction.

49

Property of Direct Descendants of the Sitters

49 Attributed to John Brewster, Jr. (American, 1766-1854) Double Portrait of Wealthy Jones Winter (b. 1819) and Sarah Marie Winter (b. 1817) Bath, Maine, circa 1827 Oil on canvas 22 x 17 inches The Winter family traces its roots in Bath, Maine to the mid-eighteenth century, when the grandfather of the sitters, Francis Winter, a Boston native and Harvard graduate settled in Bath, Maine. At that time, Maine was still a part of Massachusetts and he served as a representative to the Massachusetts legislature the First Congregational Pastor in Bath. He married Abigal Alden (1750-1826) in 1768. Francis and Abigal

Winter had four children, including Samuel (1789-1835). He married Sarah Bowman (1793-1828) in 1814. They had seven children, including the four depicted here in lots 49 and 52. Thier mother, Sarah Bowman (whose portrait, also by john Brewster, Jr., is still in the family collection) died just six days after giving birth to her seventh child. Thier father, Samuel Winter, a seaman, distiller and leader of the local Whig Party, was regarded as a “notable citizen�. He died in 1835; his orphaned children were adopted by family members. The Winter Family homestead remains with the direct descendants to this day. Until now, this portrait hung on the wall across from a portrait of their mother, Sarah Bowman, since it was painted circa 1827. The portrait of William Drew and Marcia Bowman Winter (offered as lot 52) was sold by the family some years ago and thus the portraits were separated. It is serendipitous that these two portraits are reunited for the first time in more than thirty-five years. Provenance: Descended directly in the family of the sitters to the present owner.

Provenance: Descended directly in the Breckinridge family to Mrs. Elizabeth (Breckinridge) Field and her husband, Eben J.D. Cross II (classmate and lawyer of F. Scott Fitzgerald); To the present owner, her son in law The founder of the Chandlee dynasty of clock and scientific instrument makers was Benjamin Chandlee, Sr., who migrated in 1702 from Ireland to Philadelphia, where he was apprenticed to Abel Cottey, clockmaker, and eventually married Cottey’s daughter. His son Benjamin Chandlee, Jr. (1723-1791), worked as a clockmaker in Nottingham, Chester County Pennsylvania, where he produced instruments as well as clocks. He had four sons, Goldsmith, Ellis, John and Isaac. Ellis Chandlee (1755-1816) was apprenticed to his father, and he worked with his brothers in the shop. He established the firm of Ellis Chandlee & Brothers in 1790, shortly before his father’s death. The firm was dissolved in 1797 when the youngest brother, John Chandlee, left the firm. Ellis continued in partnership with his other brother, Isaac Chandlee (1760-1813), until about 1804, producing clocks, surveying instruments, and other metal articles. Their products were signed “Ellis and Isaac Chandlee, Nottingham,” or, in the case of a surveying compass in the collection of the Chester County Historical Society, “E. & I. Chandlee, Nottingham.” Isaac Chandlee also produced clocks and instruments on his own, for there are a number of surviving clocks and surveying compasses signed in such manner

80 The Thomas Robinson Queen Anne Inlaid Walnut Veneered Dressing Table Boston, Massachusetts, 1735-1755 H. 31 ½ in.; W. 33 in.; D. 21 ¾ in. The rectangular overhanging two board white pine top veneered with four bookmatched rectangular highly-figured veneered panels enclosed by light and dark wood stringing edging a double band of herringbone veneer, a border of cross-banded walnut veneer with a convex-molded walnut edge. The case below fitted with an arrangement of two short drawers above a pair of deep short drawers centered by a deep drawer with concave inlaid lightwood fan motif. All drawers with a bookmatched crotch walnut veneered panels enclosed by light and dark wood stringing and a double band of herringbone inlay and all fitted with original Queen Anne brasses. The veneered skirt with a pair of flat arches flanking a wider central flat arch that conforms to the concave drawer above. With turned acorn drop pendants, the sides of the case, each with book-matched walnut veneer, on cabriole legs ending in pad feet. The piece has survived in an extraordinary state of preservation. The surface retains a warm mellow patina. The Queen Anne brasses and turned drop pendants appear to be original. The right drop pendant was missing the bead terminal. It was replaced by Robert Fileti Restoration in June 2003. The left side front knee return appears to be an old replacement. A veneered patch measuring approximately 1” x 1¼” has been replaced on the veneered skirt of the central arch. A single strip of veneered banding

measuring 2 ¼” on the upper right of the central drawer has been re-glued. A small piece of veneer measuring 1” x ½” at the lower left corner adjacent to the stringing has been re-glued. This previously unrecorded dressing table is among the best veneered examples known. The scale and proportion as well as the choice of crotch walnut veneers, light and dark fan inlay and fully veneered sides are rare. It exhibits classic mid-18th century Boston characteristics such as a veneered rectangular top, molded on all four sides, the concave fan-decorated central drawer above the stepped flat valences with typical acorn pendants. Provenance: A label attached to the inner front skirt reads: “Old family piece which has always/ been in the house so far as we know/ Feet called “camel feet”/ AWS/ 1897.” Family descent from the inventory of the personal estate of Thomas Robinson (1730–1817), Newport, RI.

102 Serpentine Chest of Drawers Massachusetts, 1760-1780 H. 32 ¾ in.; W. 34 in.; D. 20 ¾ in. Literature: Two related chests are illustrated as “Best” in Albert Sack, Fine Points of Furniture (N.Y., 1950), p. 100; and as “Masterpiece” in Albert Sack, The New Fine Points of Furniture (N.Y., 1993), p. 103 The chest with a richly figured crotch mahogany overhanging rectangular moldedfront serpentine top above a conforming cock-beaded case fitted with four graduated long drawers over a molded base with boldly carved claw-and-ball feet and spur returns. Chests with serpentine blocked-end facades were among the most expensive forms of case furniture produced in eighteenth century New England.

This chest is an extremely successful example of the form in the beauty and execution of its design, and the selection of richly swirled dense mahogany. The proportions are superb; the narrow case is balanced by the generous overhanging top. In addition, the carved claw-and-ball feet are boldly carved expression of the design element, with well-articulated talons gripping the carved ball. Please note: Typical of Boston practice, the top is attached to the case sides with a sliding dovetail, the drawers have fine dovetails and the drawer bottoms are chamfered and received into the drawer front and sides. The claw-and-ball feet are tenoned up through the case (rather than just being glued on the underside and secured with additional glue blocks in the standard manner. This through-tenon method was a more laborious means of construction, yet yielded a stronger bond with the case.).

109 A Pair of Polychrome Painted BassWood Blackamoors

110 Diminutive Red and Grey Painted Lift-Top Blanket Chest with Scalloped Skirt

Probably English, 18th century Early Blackamours are very rare. The design of this pair, with tubaned figures on tripod bases comprised of acanthus leaf carved cabriole legs ending in bold claw and ball feet, is very dramatic and appropriate for what one would expect to be produced for a home in 18th century England, or its American colonies. Wood analysis by Henry Alden confirms that the wood of the tables is bass-wood, also known in England as lime-wood. This hardwood was popular with carvers in England because of its close grain. Grinling Gibbons (1648-1721) did most of his flower and figure carvings for St. Paul’s Cathedral and Windsor Castle in lime-wood. Bass-wood was also often used as a secondary wood for craftsmen such as Japanners. An additional report by Jennifer Mass, Senior Scientist at Winterthur, confirms the presence of seven paint layers executed in period techniques including smalt, verdigris and bronze powder paint.

115

The Course of Empire is a five-part series of paintings created by Thomas Cole in the years 1833-36. The series reflected popular American sentiments of the times, when many saw pastoralism as the ideal phase of human civilization, fearing that imperialism would lead to decadence and inevitable decay. The series was acquired by The New-York Historical Society in 1858 as a gift of the New-York Gallery of Fine Arts, and comprises the following works: The Course of Empire - The Savage State; The Course of Empire - The Arcadian or Pastoral State; The Course of Empire - The Consummation of Empire; The Course of Empire - Destruction; and The Course of Empire - Desolation. 116

52

The series of paintings depicts the growth and fall of an imaginary city, situated on the lower end of a river valley, near its meeting with a bay of the sea. The valley is distinctly identifiable in each of the paintings, in part because of an unusual landmark: a large boulder is precariously situated atop a crag overlooking the valley. Some critics believe this is meant to contrast the immutability of the earth with the transience of man.

T H E CO L L E C T I O N O F J OA N N E A N D J E F F R E Y K L E I N Collectors Joanne and Jeffrey Klein enjoy the eclectic mix of American folk art, painted furniture and modern sculpture and paintings. They love the juxtaposition of modern with traditional ranging from symbolism to widely varying textured painted and weathered surfaces. Their appreciation of form, color and texture is exhibited in their collection of exceptional painted furniture, weathervanes, redware pottery, hooked rugs and wood carvings. Over a period of about 30 years, dealer and consultant Mary Beth Keene, then working at Wayne Pratt Inc., expertly guided and advised them on the very best of their acquisitions. Typical of the quality of several weathervanes in the collection is the wonderful gilt copper peacock, circa 1865, (lot 121) and the leaping stag, attributed to Harris & co. Boston (lot 123). The Queen Anne Salmon-Painted Chest of Five Drawers, made circa 1795, (lot 122) and attributed to Samuel Dunlap of New Hampshire, is the collection’s mas-

terpiece. This bold form, a case of drawers raised on graceful cabriole legs, most remarkably retains its original salmon red paint, and the oval pressed brasses are also original. Not only is it a sublimely beautiful object in remarkable condition; it is a rare Rosetta stone for Samuel Dunlap furniture. The equivalent in vintage car world would be a beautiful 1959 Ferrari Testarossa racing car which has survived with its original paint. The Kleins assembled a spectacular group of Windsor armchairs with an emphasis on great form and excellent surface. It is rare to see such a fine group of examples in one collection (lot 50). Joanne and Jeffrey Klein are the perfect example of a couple who simply bought what pleased them and as a result formed a truly wonderful collection. It is an honor and a pleasure to offer these pieces at Keno Auctions. — Leigh Keno

Gerald W.R. Ward in American Case Furniture states that eight five-drawer chests were entered into Samuel Dunlap’s account book between 1785 and 1820. Characteristic of Dunlap school five-drawer chests, this example exhibits pad feet, cornice molding and lipped drawers. The nearly identical chest in the Yale Gallery of Art collection has been furnished with replacement brasses and stripped of its original red paint, though according to Ward’s entry, traces of red paint remain. On the present example, the brasses (with the exception of the bottom right brass, which is an early replacement) and paint in this example are entirely original.

TIBBITS” in two places. H. 36 ½ in. Literature: Nancy Goyne Evans, American Windsor Chairs, New York: Hudson Hills Press, 1996, p. 199, fig. 5-10. Continuing the Philadelphia fashion, Kitchell uses a similar crest rail with scroll motif and knuckle arms as illustrated on p. 91 of American Windsor Chairs. A trend for high-back Windsor chairs was established in Connecticut in the 1780s, and Kitchell continued the style in New York soon after. This example, however, more closely relates to the finer details of Philadelphia models. A simpler example (with a replaced medial stretcher) is illustrated in American Windsor Chairs, fig. 5-10. Both models feature the “Ic. KITCHEL” brand mark and an owner’s brand, “G.M. TIBBITS.” Provenance: Christie’s, 1992; Private Collection, New York

228 New Mexican Folk Art Death Cart Figure

Central Northern Arizona, circa 1890 Seated figure: H. 8 ¾ in.; W. 5 in Standing figure: H. 9 in.; W. 4 in.

Attributed to Frank Applegate (American, 1881-1931) New Mexico, circa 1925 Death carts, with their terrifying figures of La Muerte, are a peculiarly New Mexican art form, appearing in the Holy Week processions of the Brotherhood. In their secret rites, Penitentes dragged the heavy, cumbersome death carts to calvarios, where they commemorated the Crucifixion. The figure and cart represents the power of death during the period between the crucifixion and the resurrection, and the ritual foretells the miracle of Christ’s ultimate triumph over death. H. (seated) 38 in.; H. (extended) 50 ¼ in. Note: Cart is missing

The Hopi made Katsina dolls to use in ceremonies, which often included depictions of neighboring tribes. These two depict a seated Navajo drummer dressed as a clown, wearing turquoise earrings, and a standing Navajo Yei Bichai dancer wearing a corn mask. Not only were they ceremonial, but often the dolls were used to educate children. The costumes are unique, and are entirely original.

248 Rembrandt Peale (American, 1778-1860) Portrait of Margaret Irvine (Mrs. John) Miller (1756-1847) Circa 1805-1807 Oil on canvas 27 x 22 ½ inches This portrait exemplifies Peale’s tendency to take liberty with the way in which he portrayed his sitters. Mr. and Mrs. Miller begin as a working class family who later raised their position in Philadelphia society. Though her clothing is aristocratic, Mrs. Miller’s pose and gaze are those of a straightforward, working class woman. Likewise, Peale depicts her husband in a fine suit, resting on a stone, with detailed work affected. Mr. John Miller (1754-1814), a stonecutter, and his family were painted in exchange for steps and chimney pieces for Peale’s house. The five other family portraits are also illustrated in the exhibition catalog.

An often reproduced painting by Alban Jasper Conaut (1821-1915) was painted in 1863, more than 55 years after Breckinridge’s death.

Conditions of Sale

Bidding Increments

Participation in this auction is subject to and governed by the following contractual terms. Each prospective buyer is deemed to have reviewed, understood and accepted these conditions of sale and participation in the auction in any manner (in person, by telephone, by written bid or on-line) constitute an acceptance of these conditions of sale by the participant.

The auctioneer will commence the bidding at any level and in increments considered appropriate. Bids will be sought in increments selected by the auctioneer who will have the absolute discretion to select any increments for any lot (and the discretion to vary the increments in the course of the bidding for any lot). However, generally speaking, the increments will depend upon the low estimate for the lot. Thus for example, for lots having a low estimate below $1,000, bids will be sought at increments of $50. The normal pattern for bidding increments will be as follows:

BEFORE THE SALE Condition Every item offered for sale will be sold subject to the actual condition of the property at the time of the sale (generally referred to as ‘as is’). Prospective buyers are permitted and strongly encouraged to thoroughly examine any property before the auction with the understanding that there is no representation or warranty of any kind concerning the condition or any of the physical aspects of any items offered for sale. Catalogue descriptions or verbal statements are offered as opinion and shall not constitute a representation or warranty or assumption of liability of any nature whatsoever.

Registration before Bidding Prospective buyers who wish to bid in the saleroom can register online in advance of the sale, or can come to the saleroom approximately 30 minutes before the start of the sale to register in person. A prospective buyer must complete and sign a registration form and provide identification (including a check acceptance form) before bidding.

Absentee Bidding Reasonable efforts will be used to carry out written bids delivered to us before the sale for the convenience of prospective purchasers who are not present at the auction in person, by an agent or by telephone. If written bids for identical amounts are submitted for the same lot and are the highest bids on this lot at the auction, the property will be sold to the person whose written bid was received and accepted first. Execution of written bids is a free service undertaken subject to other commitments at the time of the sale and there shall be no liability for failing to execute any written bid or for errors and omissions in connection with any written bid.

Telephone Bidding Telephone bids will be accepted on lots with a low estimate of more than $2,500, no later than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the commencement of the sale and only if capacity allows. Arrangements to bid in languages other than English must be made well in advance of the sale. We will use reasonable efforts to contact prospective purchasers to enable them to participate in the bidding by telephone as a free service, however there will be no liability for any failure or for any errors or omissions in connection with telephone bidding.

Low Estimate < 999 $1,000 – 1,999 $2,000 – 4,999 $5,000 – 9,999 $10,000 – 29,999 $30,000 – 49,999 $50,000 – 99,999 > $100,000

Increments $50s $100s $250s $500s $1,000s $2,500s $5,000s at auctioneer’s discretion

These increments may vary during the course of the auction at the discretion of the auctioneer.

Estimates Pre-sale estimates are provided to encourage competitive bidding. These estimates may not be relied upon as any predictions of the selling price and may not be considered to be any opinion or representation regarding the value of the property. Keno Auctions shall not be responsible or liable for any difference between a pre-sale estimate and the actual selling price for any lot.

Reserves Unless otherwise indicated, all lots are offered subject to a reserve, which is a confidential minimum price set by the seller below which the lot will be not be sold. The reserve will not exceed a given low pre-sale estimate at the time of the auction. Regardless of whether there is a reserve, the auctioneer may reject any bid and withdraw any lot for any reason. In order to comply with the seller’s reserve on any lot, the auctioneer may open bidding by placing a bid on behalf of the seller. The auctioneer may bid further on behalf of the seller (i.e. a bid from the book held by the auctioneer) up to the amount of the reserve by placing consecutive bids or by placing bids in response to other bidders. If a lot is not sold, the auctioneer will announce that fact (normally by stating that the lot has been unsold or passed).

Property of Keno Auctions / Guarantees

Please register for online bidding at KenoAuctions.com. Reasonable efforts will be exerted to place on-line bids in the saleroom. However there will be no liability for any failure or error in the placement of such bids.

Should Keno Auctions own any lot in whole or in part or have a financial interest in any lot equivalent to an ownership interest, the catalogue will clearly identify any such property as the Property of Keno Auctions. From time to time, a lot may be offered for which a guaranteed minimum price or an advance secured by the consigned property has been given to the seller. Such property will be identified in the catalogue with the symbol * next to the lot number.

AT THE SALE Terms of Bidding

AFTER THE SALE Successful Bids

Online Bidding

The auctioneer has the absolute and sole discretion to refuse any bid and to advance the bidding in any manner. The auctioneer also has the right to withdraw any lot, and in the case of error and dispute (whether during or after the sale) to determine the successful bidder, to continue the bidding, to cancel the sale or to reoffer and resell the property. The highest bidder acknowledged by the auctioneer will be the purchaser. In the case of a tie bid, the winning bidder will be determined at the sole discretion of the auctioneer. In the event of a dispute between bidders, the auctioneer has final discretion to determine the successful bidder or to reoffer the lot in dispute. If any dispute arises after the sale, the sale record of the auctioneer is conclusive. Participation in the auction may be disallowed for any reason. A bid is an offer to purchase and by making a successful bid, a bidder is accepting personal liability to pay the purchase price, plus the buyer’s premium, all applicable taxes and all other applicable charges.
