The Collection of Peter Carswell: 45

Lots 43–100 Peter Carswell started in the antiques business part time in 1968, though he marks the start of his relationship with Pat O’Malley in 1976 as perhaps a truer beginning. In the late 1970s, the two of them would “knock doors” every weekend and on Peter’s vacations. In 1979, Peter mentions, he “kept trying to buy a round oak table base off a porch.” After four increasingly persistent tries, he finally “got in.” That was his entrance into the Andrews estate, which Peter says “changed my life.”

In 1980 he made the antiques business his full-time trade, canvassing Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and southern Maine over the subsequent decades. He says “My business developed into a pure wholesale trade, allowing me to buy and sell virtually daily.” Peter tells the story of Ken Robb recounting one day that he had figured out Peter’s success: “buy nothing without casters, so you can roll it into the barn and we can roll it out!” The feverish pace was always a labor of love—even when logging 65,000 miles a year. Later in his career, he came to know Bill Graham, Sr., who mentored Peter “beyond belief,” bestowing knowledge which Peter absorbed fully. As Peter’s reputation grew, dealers would stop by for a drink on his porch, and some would offer $100 just to be able to go upstairs—their imaginations, Peter says humbly, “had made our collection grow into far more than it was!” The pinnacle of his success as a wholesaler is described in an anecdote whereby Jay Turomsha was sitting first in a line of 15 antiques dealers and dealers’ vans at Peter’s home, who had gotten word that Peter had his hands on yet another “juicy estate,” and were there to buy. An invitation to join the New Hampshire Dealers show came later. His business relationships with the dealers (who had always bought “the good, the bad, and the ugly”) had developed over years into friendships. Those relationships would have been compromised if he began to take only the “good” things to another venue—so his standards of fairness and honesty caused him to decline the chance to exhibit at the legendary show. With a beautiful lake to look over every morning, Peter has decided to let his possessions find new homes, to give pleasure to new owners, and to add to their stories.

The Alexander Collection: Lots 101–206 Back in 1965, on their way home from their honeymoon on Mackinac Island, Jim and Pam had a few bucks left in their pocket and, knowing that the apartment that awaited them in a Detroit suburb had little furniture, they stopped at a country auction in a small Michigan town. They acquired a sturdy, round, oak pedestal table that hadn’t been altered in any way. Little did they know that their purchase would set a course for years to come. In seven years, they found themselves in New England. It was serendipity—as they prowled through auctions—first Julia and Cyr, then Northeast, Skinner, Sotheby’s and Christie’s. And, of course, one can’t attend auctions without meeting dealers. With new found friendships, their vocabulary expanded—dovetails, chamfered drawer bottoms, glue blocks, brasses, original finish, old paint, veneers and inlays, tiger maple—it was endless. And, it was all new. The Alexanders found they had so much to learn. And learning is what fascinated Jim the most. It wasn’t unusual for him to stop in a booth and ask questions about an item. The last thing he almost always asked was “What can I read to learn more about this item.” As a result, they amassed a fine collection of books. When auction catalogs arrived, Jim spent his evenings looking up previous sales—he kept and recorded sales from all the major auctions—and looked up items in his library so that he could better understand what they should be buying. Later, while living in NYC, they took courses at Sotheby’s taught by Wendell and Betsy Garrett. They later joined Winterthur’s Collector’s Circle and enjoyed trips throughout New England, the South and even the Midwest, their roots. But most of all, they learned from dealers and friends, Steve & Carol Huber, Arthur Liverant, Betty Berdan & Michael Newsome, Jackie Radwin, Michael Ogle, George Spiecker and Russ Goldberger. Most especially they tried to absorb the knowledge that was freely given by Clark Pearce, Brock Jobe, Linda Eaton, Christine Thompson, Robert Mussey and the host of specialists and collectors they met at Winterthur. Each bit of insight only expanded their interest. And what became of that sturdy, oak, pedestal table. Well, it got refinished, but back in 1965, Jim thought that was a good thing. It accommodated their family of six and anchored their kitchens in Michigan, New Hampshire and Maine and even donned a full-length skirt to became a covered table in their New York apartment and later in Connecticut. Now it’s back in Maine and resides in their daughter’s summer cottage in South Portland. It’s where puzzles are made and games are played. Their granddaughters call it the “Honeymoon Table.” —Pam & Jim Alexander

My introduction to Pam and Jim Alexander began with a painful and immobilizing slipped disc. After two weeks of Prednisone and bed rest, I was cleared for exercise, but only for swimming. At that time, I had the good fortune to be working at Sotheby’s with Libby Alexander, Pam and Jim’s daughter. She was my business manager, and a competitive swimmer. Libby took me, as her guest, to her pool of choice to see if I could follow my doctor’s direction to swim. Along the way, she casually mentioned that her parents were interested in Americana. As an effective business manager, her comments about her parents’ collection were characteristically understated. What she did not say was that Pam and Jim were passionate, enthusiastic collectors and students of Americana and were forming a soup to nuts collection—which included a tall copper banner weathervane from Maine, a charming pictorial rug of a Campfire Girl hooked in 1938; a Newport Queen Anne side chair with carved shell on the crest; a large 19th century family portrait from the Garbisch collection, and more. Soon thereafter, I met Libby’s parents at the New Hampshire shows. Disc healed, we were off and running. It’s been a great joy for me to work with Pam and Jim on this part of their collecting odyssey. It’s been a pleasure to visit and see their collection in depth, with each of them as docents, to learn of their research, hear their stories, hear about the dealers, scholars, collecting groups and educational symposia that have helped to guide and form their collection. Together we have analyzed each piece in the collection and created a plan for this sale as they downsized and moved from Stonington, CT to Williamsburg, VA. For all the wonderful objects and art that make up any collection, the pieces are inevitably tied to the people who have put a collection together. It’s been more than a pleasure to soak up Pam and Jim’s connoisseurship, dedicated research, and share our mutual love of Americana. —Nancy Druckman

449 Attributed to Erastus Salisbury Field (Massachusetts/New York, c. 1805-1900) Pair of Portraits of the Reverend George Champlin Shepard and His Wife Sally Inman Kast Shepard Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 36 x 30 in., in molded gesso frames. Condition: Craquelure, paint flaking and loss, short tear below George Champlin’s chin. Note: George Shepard was born in 1802 in Little Compton, Rhode Island, the sixth of nine children of Deborah Haskins and The Reverend Mase Shepard. He was educated first at Brown University and then at Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts, where his mother moved the family after his father’s death. He graduated in 1824. Two years after graduation, George began the study of theology under Episcopal Bishop Thomas Brownell Church of Hartford, and was ordained in August of 1826. A year later, he was chosen as rector of St. Peter’s Church in Hebron, Connecticut, southeast of Hartford. The same year, he married Sally Inman Kast of Boston.

From 1829 to 1839 he served as rector at Christ Church in Stratford, Connecticut, a rectorship cut short by George’s compromised health. He recuperated in Europe and came back to serve at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jamaica Plain, until 1845 when again his ill health caused him to resign. He remained active in the Episcopal community, but was never a full-time rector again. For the remainder of their lives, George and Sally continued to visit Amherst regularly, though they remained residents of Boston. But their Amherst ties were strong. They became well known for their generosity to organizations in Boston and in the Connecticut River Valley, including Amherst’s Grace Church. Reverend Shepard took part in the consecration ceremony for the church in 1866, after having donated $1,000 to the church’s Building Fund. The couple, of course, counted themselves among the earliest congregants.

These portraits of Sally and George were probably painted between 1835 and 1839 while the couple was living in Stratford, and were retained by the Boltwood family (the inlaws of George’s younger sister and prominent citizens of Amherst) after George’s death. They were passed down in the Boltwood family until 1960, when Mary Gernon (Rice) Boltwood gave them to Grace Church. $10,000-15,000 450 Carved Mahogany and Mahogany Veneer Bow-front Chest of Drawers, North Shore, Massachusetts, c. 1820, with two recessed short drawers above the main case of four drawers joining pineapple- and spiral-carved quarter-engaged posts, on turned feet, brasses appear original, old surface, ht. 51, wd. 42 1/2, dp. 21 in. $1,000-1,500

After Sally’s death in May of 1868, and before his own, George gave the entirety of his estate to help finance the building of Grace Church’s clock and bell tower, as a memorial to his wife. The tower was completed in September of that same year and cost $8,000 or so. George lived to see the tower completed, but died three months later. His funeral was held at Trinity Church on Sumner Street in Boston, which burned in the Great Boston Fire of 1872.

489 George Frederic Stearns (Mansfield, Massachusetts, 1826-1902) Portrait of the Isaac Stearns Family Unsigned. Oil on canvas, 29 x 36 in., depicting the family including William Stearns, his wife, Nancy Hick Walker Stearns holding baby Wilhelmina, Josephine standing, and seated are their three sons LeRoy, William Lowell, and Elijah Walker, all in a room with fireplace, Boston classical table with floral cloth, a checked floor cloth, and painting on the wall depicting the family home on Stearns Avenue, East Mansfield, Massachusetts, where the picture was painted, in original black-painted frame. Condition: Unrestored, with areas of wear and associated paint loss. Note: George Frederic Stearns was born October 1, 1826, in Mansfield, Massachusetts, the fourth of nine children of Isaac and Sarah Fillebrown Stearns. While little is known of his early life, it is thought that he began painting when in his late teens or early twenties. While Stearns’ uncle, William and cousin William L. Stearns’, were “Painters” by profession, and it is possible that they played some role in the development of his artistic skills, there is no known evidence that George received any formal academic training. Family records show that Stearns is known to have painted portraits of at least eight of his relatives and at least one other genre painting described as a “Southern Slave Market.” He apparently made at least a modest living from his work as the 1850 Federal Census notes Stearns’ occupation as “Portrait Painter.” In 1855 George Frederic Stearns and his brother, Orange Scott Stearns, built the “Mud House,” a hexagonal cement structure on Stearns Avenue, Mansfield, Massachusetts, that still stands today. George married Louisa Jones Shaw April 25, 1855 in Sudbury, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, and together they had ten children. According to family tradition, Louisa did not feel that portrait painting was a suitable profession for a gentleman and urged him to enter the ministry. By the late 1850s Stearns seems to have stepped away from his portrait painting profession and to begin his religious training. The 1860 Federal Census notes Stearns’ occupation as “Clergyman,” and he was fully ordained as a minister October 10, 1861. Stearns continued in the ministry as a pastor and missionary for the remainder of his life serving in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Ohio, Maine, and Massachusetts. Reverend Stearns died in Mansfield, Massachusetts, on April 17, 1902. $8,000-12,000

Note: Victor Christ-Janer was a Modernist architect who, along with the group known as the Harvard Five (comprised of Bauhaus disciples Philip Johnson, Marcel Breuer, Eliot Noyes, Landis Gores, and John M. Johansen), helped to make New Canaan, Connecticut, into a world-renowned 20th century architectural capital in the 1940s and 1950s. 100 homes designed by members of that group were built there, many of which still stand, and another ten or so were designed and built by Janer-Christ, including his own home, which was demolished in 2013 after an unsuccessful attempt to save it from that fate. Christ-Janer was very interested in contemporary art of the time, to the extent that he opened a small gallery in his office which offered works by Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, and Claes Oldenburg. He also taught a masters course in General Design at Columbia University. Other examples of his weathervanes are known, including one depicting a fantastical Goddess figure among stars, and another in the form of a honeybee. $8,000-12,000
