Provenance A Private New England Collection

A Private New York City Collection

A Private Collection of Early Kashmir Shawls

A Private Collection of Central Asian Embroideries

The Estate of Ed Safarian

The Arlene Cooper Collection

Property from the Lucius D. Potter Memorial Collection at Historic Deerfield: Lots 1–14 We say in Deerfield, Massachusetts, that the place is really a collection of collections, some stretching back more than two centuries, but what the public also benefits from at Historic Deerfield is the generosity of the collectors behind those collections. One of them is Rowena Russell Potter (1880-1960) of Greenfield, Massachusetts, who bequeathed her collection to the museum in 1960 as the Lucius D. Potter Memorial Collection. Mrs. Potter gave the collection in memory of her husband who was a descendant of Deerfield tailor John (1731-1775) and Hannah (Sheldon) Russell (1738-1814). The Sheldon House still stands and is shown to the public by Historic Deerfield. In 1814, the family began the Russell Cutlery—the Green River Works—once the largest such business in the country. The objects offered here are duplicates or lie outside of the collecting interest of Historic Deerfield. Their sale takes place in appreciation of Mrs. Potter to benefit the Museum Collections Fund at Historic Deerfield. —Philip Zea, President, Historic Deerfield

Except as provided in paragraph 1 above, the highest bidder as determined by the auctioneer shall be the purchaser. In the case of a disputed bid, the auctioneer shall have sole discretion in determining the purchaser and may also, at his or her election, withdraw the lot or reoffer the lot for sale.

Import restrictions from foreign countries are subject to these same governing laws. Granting of licensing for import or export of goods from local authorities is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
