222 Fine George IV Phillip Rundell Sterling Silver Gilt Wine Cooler on Stand, hallmarked London, 1821‑1822, for Rundell, Bridge and Rundell, after designs by John Flaxman and Thomas Stothard, of campana form, the lower section gadrooned, with a pair of figural handles in the form of reclining putti on reeded and entwined tendrils extending to form realistic grapevine banding on the body, with and ovolo rim, raised above a leaf-and-dartbanded foot and presented on a plinth base decorated with grapevines and leaf-and-dart banding en suite and a pair of opposing satyr masques, engraved on the body with the arms of Seely of Lincoln, and around the cooler base “Rundell Bridge Et Rundell Aurifices Regis Londoni”, h. 18‑1/4”, w. 10‑1/4”, d. 9‑3/4”, 181.33 t. oz. The design for this lot recalls one by Flaxman in the collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, although the cherubic figures suggest the hand of Stothman. The 1821 date suggests a connection to the coronation of George IV in that year; a strikingly similar gold cup by Rundell with oak-branch motifs was commissioned by the King for the Earl of Ormonde in gratitude for his assistance in the ceremony. (See Christopher Hartop, Royal Goldsmiths: The Art of Rundell & Bridge, 1797‑1843 (Cambridge: Adamson, 2005), p. 76, fig. 66. The arms here are those of the Seely family of Lincolnshire. At the time the cup was made - presumably for eighteen-year-old Charles Seely, Jr. (1803‑1887), later liberal M.P. 1847‑48 and 1861‑85 - the family had not been formally granted these arms, but evidently had been using them as an affectation. It was not until Charles’ son - also Charles (1833‑1915) and also M.P. - was elevated to the baronetage in 1896 that the Seelys were granted arms, incorporating into them the elements long used by the family.

Befort Jeune, born Mathieu Befort Jeune (1813‑1880), was a Parisian cabinet maker and the son of Jean-Baptiste Befort. Their workshop was located at rue Neuve-Saint-Gilles from 1844 to 1880. The high quality of Befort Jeune’s work granted him purveyor to Napoleon III and Empress Eugenie. The firm also received a medal at the 1844 Exposition de Produits de l’Industrie Francais. Provenance: Lockwood-Mathews Mansion, Norwalk, Connecticut. By family tradition, this pedestal was acquired as part of the re-furnishing of the LockwoodMathews Mansion. The sixty-two room mansion is considered one of the earliest and finest surviving Second Empire style houses ever built in the United States. LeGrand Lockwood, who built the house, made his fortune in banking and the railroad industry. The mansion was completed in 1868 and furnished by the leading decorating firms of the time, which included the Herter Brothers and Leon Marcotte. The financial crash of 1869, followed by Lockwood’s death in 1872, resulted in foreclosure of the mansion and the public sale of all its furnishings. Charles Mathews purchased the property in 1876 and re-furnished it. Presumably, this pedestal was acquired as part of this re-furnishing project. The Mathews estate sold the mansion to the city of Norwalk in 1941 and the contents were then sold at public auction. The pedestal descended through the consignor’s family, who acquired it at this 1941 auction. [6000/9000] Illustrated

They used the technique not only on glassware, but also on ivory and horn for the manufacture of cane handles and corkscrews. Their method was supplanted by John H. Scharling’s improved patent of 1892, which was adopted by both the Wymble Mfg. Corp. and the Alvin Corp. Croselmire sold his refining company in 1902 to Charles W. Englehard, which later became Fortune 500 company Englehard, manufacturers of the first catalytic converters. Croselmire died in 1910 in a notorious murder-suicide, in which he shot his wife, Henrietta, and then himself. His wife survived the attack, but Croselmire died after shooting himself in both the heart and the head. [200/400] Illustrated

1146 Jean Joseph Vaudechamp (French, 1790‑1866, active New Orleans 1831‑39) “Portrait of a Man and Woman, Presumably Baroness Louise Deconchy Receiving Word of Her Husband’s Death in Battle”, oil on canvas, signed and dated lower left “Vaudechamp, 1823”, 28‑3/4” x 23”, reverse label inscribed in pen and ink “Baronne Louise Deconchy, epouse du general d’ Empire Vincent Martel Deconchy (1768‑1823). Presented in the period giltwood and gesso frame. This rare work is one of the earliest surviving paintings to have surfaced by Jean Joseph Vaudechamp, painted in France six years after he began exhibiting at the Paris Salon, one year before he married his second wife, one year before the death of his teacher, Anne-Louis Girodet-Trioson, and two years before his first (and only known) state commission. Vaudechamp very rarely painted multiple figures in the same composition, either in France or Louisiana. This canvas is presumably a portrait of Baroness Louise Deconchy, wife of General Vincent Martel Deconchy who died on a battlefied in Spain in 1823. This could perhaps be a mourning portrait of the Baroness and her son or secretary, with the classicized bust of the deceased general on a plinth behind the writing desk. The younger man is holding an official letter in his hand visibly inscribed at the top “MEE Espagne”, again referring to the FrancoSpanish war. Regardless of the identity of the sitters, the portrait’s composition is a sophisticated one for the 33 year-old artist, as the figures face each other tete-atete. Even in the handful of multi-figural compositions he would create in New Orleans, the painter usually preferred to have figures frontal, playing to the viewers. Vaudechamp’s palette is brighter and slightly more acrid than the subdued one he would adopt in New Orleans after his 1832 arrival there. This work, like the Langres altarpiece and his later “Portrait of an Elegant Young Gentleman with Cane, presumed to be a Resident of New Orleans (Mr. Robley?)” reflects the artist’s difficulty when presenting a figure at more than bust-length, witnessed in particular by the lady’s lap and the extended leg. What he lacks in understanding of foreshortening, he more than makes up for in the handling of the face, fabric and details, seen in the design on the shawl draped over the chair. New Orleans Auction Galleries would like to thank William Keyse Rudolph, Ph.D., The Dudley J. Godfrey, Jr. Curator of American Art and Decorative Arts at the Milwaukee Art Museum for his generous contribution to cataloguing this lot.

1162 Twenty-Two Books of Tennessee Interest, including sixteen books by Charles Egbert Craddock [Mary Noailles Murfree] (1850‑1922), her biography by Edd Winfield Parks, three volumes of Tennessee: The Volunteer State, Safford’s Elements of the Geology of Tennessee, and the 1939 Register fo the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeder’s Association. Mary Noailles Murfree was born near Murfreesboro, Tennessee, the town named after her great-grandfather Henry Murfree. Although educated in Philadelphia, she spent her youth between Murfreesboro and Nashville, where her father was a prominent attorney, and summered in Beersheba Springs in the Cumberland Mountains. Influenced by the works of Walter Scott and George Eliot, she began writing in 1872, and was first published in Lippincott’s in 1874. Her first collection of stories was published in 1884, and it was not until the following year that her editor at Atlantic Monthly, Thomas Bailey Aldrich, discovered that “Mr. Craddock” was, in fact, Miss Murfree. She published eighteen novels and seven short story collections over the next twenty years. Her works are considered classics of the post-war “local color” genre, and she remains required reading for students of Appalachian culture. A detailed list her (and other) works in this lot is available on request. [150/300] Illustrated

(Cellini was suspicious of and disliked by the King’s court, and soon returned to his native Florence.) The pattern was designed by French-born Ernest Meyers, who spent at least three years working on the design, which included fifteen separate intricate flatware motifs. Meyers was not only a skilled designer, but a talented technician who received patents for a perspective drawing apparatus (1892), milling machines (1891 and 1894) and - most crucially for the minutely-detailed Francis I pattern - an improved die-cutting machine (1904). The pattern is one of the most popular ever produced, and has the distinction of having the most number of different pieces of any line. It is known as “The Pattern of the Presidents”, being used in the White House by both Woodrow Wilson and Dwight Eisenhower, as well as by Harry Truman on the presidential yacht the USS Williamsburg and by Gerald Ford in his private residence. The extraordinary set represented in the present lot is assuredly the most impressive and coveted assemblage of the entire line, containing both the scarce kettle-on-stand and the massive sterling tray (alone weighing over 150 troy ounces).

1295 Tiffany & Co. Sterling Silver Bowl, the pattern introduced in 1920, this example dated 1955, New York City, New York, part of Tiffany’s reproduction series of important American silver, this bowl after a ca. 1700 example by Joseph Conyers, Boston, of plain hemispherical form with simple foot ring, engraved on the body “1930 G 1955”, h. 4”, dia. 9”, 23.31 t. oz. This striking bowl, one of Tiffany’s most popular, is a testament to the endurance of American design. The late 17th/ early 18th century original was part of the collection of Connecticut bed linen and quilt manufacturer George Smith Palmer (1855‑1934), a pioneering figure in the study and collection of American decorative arts. Palmer began to divest himself of his important collection in 1918, donating his sixty-five best furniture pieces to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, followed by the sale of his silver collection in 1920 to Tiffany & Co. (The remainder was sold to antiquarian Israel Sack in 1928.) Tiffany immediately placed Palmer silver on exhibition and simultaneously created the model for this reproduction, the original of which appeared as number 18 in the 1920 exhibition catalogue. The bowl’s Puritan simplicity of design appealed to adherents of both the Colonial Revival fad of the 1920s and its avant-garde stylistic opposite, Art Deco, and remained equally popular throughout the period of mid-century modernism; Tiffany’s copy (as evidenced by the inscribed date on the present lot) thus remained in production for at least thirty-five years. Tiffany eventually sold the Palmer collection to Edsel Ford, where it formed the core of the silver collection at the Edsel and Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe, Michigan.

According to the consignor, the present mirror graced the front parlor of one of two decrepit townhouses in the French Quarter near Bourbon street. The elderly woman that had inherited the house and resided there through much of her adult life repeatedly volunteered that “this was never a wh***house”. The interior of the adjoining house featured a bar in the first floor front parlor, and on the second floor, al long hallway with a row of numerous doors to narrow rooms. In July 2007, another local auction house sold an apparently identical mantle mirror that was reputedly from Josie Arlington’s infamous Storyville bordello. In 1917 when Federal officials imposed on the city to close the district, the trade in flesh went underground and was diffused throughout the city, particularly to the neighborhoods in the periphery of Storyville.

She was educated at the Hollins Institute (now Hollins University) in Boutetourt Springs, Virginia and in 1882 married George Oglethorp Gilmer, her stepmother’s brother. The couple moved to New Orleans in the 1890’s, where George opened a turpentine distillery and Elizabeth met Eliza Jane Poitevent Holbrook Nelson (1843‑1896), owner of the Picayune and columnist there under the pseudonym “Pearl Rivers”. Nelson hired Gilmer, who began writing her popular pseudonymous advice column “Dear Dorothy Dix”. Under her pen name, Dix would become the most popular and widely read columnist in the world, with an estimated readership of over sixty million by the time of her death on December 16, 1951. Although she traveled the world and lived intermittently in New York (having been hired by William Randolph Hearst), her primary residence was in New Orleans, at the home she built in 1925 at 6334 Prytania, the corner of Exposition Boulevard. The collection here is that of Allen H. and Maizie N. Voorhies, close friends of Dix’s. One letter contains Christmas greetings, and the other a thank you for a gift. (The photograph similarly inscribed to “Maizie and Allen” - is by noted New Orleans African American photographer Arthur P. Bedou (1882‑1966). The Dorothy Dix Papers are conserved at the Felix G. Woodward Library at Austin Peay State University, Clarkesville, Tennessee; the Arthur P. Bedou Photographic Collection is conserved at the Xavier University Library, New Orleans, Louisiana.

George Schmidt is a painter of history, one who researches his subject matter meticulously and presents his viewer with the known facts, combined with wit and satire. The artist’s attention to detail and accuracy are evident in his note about the painting: “I feel confident to claim without fear of contradiction that my painting is probably the most accurate portrayal at present. Thanks in large part to my friend Tim Pickles, an authority on the battle and author of a book entitled “New Orleans, 1815, I have attempted to depict the brevity of this battle accurately. The battle was fought at dawn during one of the coldest winters in memory. It was short in length and small in number of participants. It lasted only two hours with the climax lasting a mere 15 minutes. The British reported 2,037 casualties. Andrew Jackson reported only 13.” The cinematic narrative style and grand scope of the canvas are appropriate for the heroic subject matter of the painting, which captures the event that effectively ended the war of 1812. New Orleans Auction Galleries is pleased to offer this important work in our September, 2012 sale, befitting of the 200th anniversary of Louisiana statehood [75000/125000] Illustrated
