|

Wine Reception 5PM; Gallery Talk 6PM

Marlborough Gallery | 274 Cedar Hill Street, Marlborough, MA Richard Ketchen, of Carlisle, Massachusetts, will lead a gallery walk on Fasoldt clocks and the Holtzapffel ornamental turning lathe and rose engine featured in this sale. A leading clock and scientific instrument conservator, Richard is uniquely qualified to speak on these diverse subjects. Ketchen has restored a large and diverse collection of Fasoldt timekeepers and has made one from scratch to better understand the genius of the original maker. As an avocation, Richard acquired a Holtzapffel ornamental turning lathe and an entire cabinet full of original components, and he now spends his spare time reinventing the mysteries of ornamental turning. Join us for what will no doubt be a very interesting evening.

American Clocks 89 J.J. Elliott Monumental Carved Mahogany Quarter-chiming Hall Clock, c. 1900, case attributed to R.J. Horner & Co., W. 23rd Street, New York, from the estate of Colonel Park Shaw of Carefree, Arizona, finely carved removable crest with winged figures flanking a center raised boss supported by flowers, leaves, and scroll decoration over the gadrooned crown molding, below winged griffins flank the composite brass arabic numeral dial with seconds bit, subsidiary dials for Chime-Silent and Westminster/Whittington chime selection, moon’s age in the arch and pierced brass grillwork on spandrels and center, the glazed waist door flanked by human and fish-form caryatids over the fully carved base panel with central putti, birds, a grotesque mask, and allegorical human depictions of the wind on a punch-decorated ground, eight-day, three-train, quarter-chiming movement by J.J. Elliott, LTD, London, with nine tubular bells, deadbeat escapement, rack and snail strike, brass-faced seconds-beating pendulum and three brass-cased weights, ht. 116 in.

Provenance: This clock was reportedly owned by John Jacob Astor IV of the prominent Astor family of New York. Purchased from Tiffany & Co. of New York in the early 20th century by Mr. Astor and given as a gift to a friend by the name of Ms. Huntington, a Metropolitan Opera singer. After the passing of Mr. Astor in 1914 aboard the famous Titanic, Ms. Huntington sold it to a Dr. and Mrs. John A. Burke, an eminent New York physician. Dr. Burke and his wife retired to Pittsfield, Massachusetts, his native city, sometime in the late 1920s early 1930s. An article dated October 1934 appeared in the Berkshire Evening Eagle titled “John Jacob Astor’s Clock Stands in Local Homestead” recalls a short history of the clock. It was then gifted to or purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Shaw in 1967, also of Pittsfield. It was then handed down to A. Park Shaw Jr. who became a Colonel in the U.S. Army and resided in his later years in Carefree, Arizona, until his death last year. Mrs. Cherri Shaw is parting with this beloved family piece with a heavy heart but believes it will find a new caring custodian. There is extensive family history, including black-and-white photographs, repair invoices, and original typed correspondences between R.P. Swanson, manager of the clocks department at Tiffany & Co., R.W. Elliott of F.W. Elliot Ltd., of Croydon, England, the maker of the movement, and Park Shaw Jr. between the dates of July 1968 and November 1969 trying to piece together the history of this monumental carved clock. There is a photocopied letter dated October 7th, 1969 on F.W. Elliot letterhead to a Rosealind Silberman stating the possible carver of this clock was named Orpen, and the mechanism was imported into the states by Harris and Harrington sometime between 1886-1901. Colonel Park Shaw (1923-2016) graduated from the Kentucky Military Institute in 1942. After graduation he immediately enlisted and was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant at Fort Benning, Georgia. He participated with General MacArthur with the initial assault on Luzon in 1945. He later was involved in the initial occupation of Hokkaido, Japan. Following the war, Col. Shaw served on the General Staff of the 6th Army at Presidio in San Francisco. In 1991, he was inducted into the Infantry Officers’ Candidate School Hall of Fame. In 2006 he was inducted into the Arizona Veterans’ Hall of Fame awarded by Governor Janet Napolitano. $40,000-60,000

Note: The Gooding family of clockmakers were very prolific and spanned two generations. It is likely that this clock, simply signed “Gooding,” was made by Joseph Gooding (1773-1853), as the eight known clocks made by Joseph are all sequentially numbered like this example; 2, 6, 8, 9, 10, 20, 22, and 38 are known. Joseph was one of the earliest makers in southeastern Massachusetts.

Note: The “M. O’Connell” signed on the dial of this clock is likely the same O’Connell listed in Spittlers & Bailey, Clockmakers and Watchmakers of America, p. 304, despite the late dates of 1841-1869 noted there. Maurice O’Connell could quite possibly be a Willard apprentice or journeyman by 1800, signing clocks taken in payment for work completed. $3,000-5,000

414 Republic-47D Thunderbolt U-control Model Airplane by Ernest Berke, constructed 1956-65, Elmont, Long Island, 1/12th scale model powered by a single cylinder Hassad .720 displacement “glow” engine with a 1.042 stroke, and .9375 bore, two-bladed 12-in. dia. and 6-in. pitch propeller, the landing gear, cockpit lights, flaps, landing lights, horizontal and vertical stabilizers, engine throttle, etc., all functioning both from the cockpit and from the modified Roberts U-control handle, the power for these functions is provided via a 12-volt motorcycle battery fitted to a custom designed belt to be worn by the operator, the plane weighs approximately 7 1/2 pounds, the hand-colored, designed, and typed bound technical manual along with many original black-and-white photographs of the construction and details of the plane, air shows, and Academy of Aeronautics meeting flyers designed by Mr. Berke accompany the lot, wingspan 43 in. Note: Ernest Berke was born in New York City in 1921, to first-generation Russian and Romanian parents. At an early age, his artistic talents were recognized and enthusiastically supported by his parents. This support as it turns out, wasn’t misguided, as Ernest went on to become the youngest chief fashion artists Sears Roebuck had ever had, and subsequently went on to his life’s passion as a noted artist, sculptor, historian, author, and teacher. The groundwork for his vision, and finally his construction of the P-47 Thunderbolt model was cultivated as a youngster. Growing up in the Hell’s Kitchen section of New York, money was in short supply, and Ernie’s passion for model making required a creative approach. The wood for his models came from the produce market in the city, where he could procure hardwood fruit crates for free. With a pocketknife, some sandpaper, glue and basic paints he pursued his passion for model making, especially for the U.S. fighter aircraft of the day.

In the early 1950s, while working at Sears, the idea to build the most accurate flying scale model airplane ever created, began taking shape. During these years the American Model Association, and Academy of Model Aeronautics were sponsoring very large, and wildly popular meets supporting U-control, and early radio control modeling enthusiasts. The category of choice for this model would be “Flying Scale.” Simply put, this category required that the model be “anatomically correct” and complete ten laps flying, taking off and landing under it’s own power. As no plans existed to build such a model, Ernie managed to procure blueprints from Republic Aviation Corporation in order to faithfully duplicate and incorporate all of the functioning systems of the P-47 into his model. The level of engineering incorporated into a model of this size has rarely, if ever, been seen before or since. After thousands of hours, and almost nine years of pain staking work, the P-47 was completed. It went on to compete at the Nationals in Chicago in 1964 where it won first place. The model was retired after that meet and is as you see it today. $6,000-8,000 415 Mills 10-cent “Bonus” High-top Slot Machine, Mills Novelty Co., Chicago, Illinois, c. 1948, red and chrome body, lower jackpot viewing window, and side crank arm, ht. 26 in. $300-500 416 Wurlitzer “Bubbler” Jukebox Model 1015, c. 1946, Rudolph Wurlitzer Co., New York, serial no. 1033669, walnut veneered dometop case with the “bubble” or color changing posts, chrome accents, and gilt fabric soundboard, twenty-four tune selections, five-, ten-, and twenty-five-cent slots, plays 78-RPM records, ht. 60 in. $3,000-4,000
