New England’s Trusted Auction & Appraisal Professionals

The octagonal banner box, set with semi-precious stones, contained an octagonal Qur’an with gilt leather covers. At auction, this unique and rare item started a bidding war that far exceeded the consignor’s expectations!

Conditions of Sale Please Note: Our Conditions of Sale have recently changed TERMS OF SALE: By registering to bid on any lot or any participation in an auction at Thomaston Place Auction Galleries (TPAG), you (the bidder or agent bidding on behalf of others, ref. par.13) agrees to be bound by these Conditions of Sale. CONDITION OF ITEMS & WARRANTY INFORMATION: Thomaston Place Auction Galleries (TPAG) makes every attempt to uphold the highest standards in the auction industry. Our goal is to consistently deliver the highest level of products and services to our customers. Our catalog descriptions represent what we have deemed appropriate to identify each object and we stand behind our descriptions as they relate to authenticity, however all items for sale are offered “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility (present, absentee, phone or online) to determine the exact condition of each item. Our warranty does come with parameters and it is the bidder’s responsibility to understand those parameters fully. Please take time to familiarize yourself with what is covered and make your bidding decisions accordingly. 1) All items are “as is,” and it is the bidder’s responsibility to inspect, research, and determine the authenticity of all items upon which bids are placed. Determination of age, materials, condition, quality, authenticity, classification, purported history and perceived value, regardless of what is written or said by TPAG, is the sole responsibility of the bidder/buyer. 2) TPAG nor it’s consignor(s) makes any expressed or implied guarantees, warranties or representations in regard to the property merchantability or the correctness of the catalog or other description of the authenticity of authorship, physical condition, size, quality, medium or material, period, culture, source, rarity, importance, provenance, exhibition, literature or historic relevance of the property or otherwise. 3) The absence of any reference to the condition of a lot does not in any way imply that the lot is in perfect condition or completely free of wear, imperfections or the effects of aging. 4) Condition Reports for items may be requested up to 48 hours prior to the date of the auction. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner however, we cannot guarantee that a request submitted within 48 hours will be answered prior to the auction date. Neither TPAG nor it’s consignor makes any guarantee or warranty with regards to these reports. It is the buyer’s responsibility to examine each item and make their own assessment prior to the auction. 5) All items are sold for display purpose. If electrical, mechanical

or other working parts are inoperable, even if working at the time of sale, TPAG is not liable due to the inherent nature of the age of antiques and items. 6) Goods made from or containing materials from protected species - TPAG does not accept any responsibility or liability for the sale of items containing materials from protected species or for any omissions in marketing or labeling goods as containing materials from protected species. Such materials include, but are not limited to ivory from elephants and walruses, tortoise shell, crocodile skin, whalebone, rhinoceros horn, some species of coral and certain woods. Restrictions on the importation, exportation, sale, transfer, and/or possession of goods containing materials from protected species derive from international, federal and state laws and regulations promulgated thereunder. It is the sole responsibility of the buyer to research and satisfy the requirements of any laws and regulations that apply to the import and export of property as described in the aforementioned paragraphs. All buyers agree to comply with any and all domestic and international restrictions and licensing on the trade of protected species as a condition of the sale. The inability or delay in obtaining permits, licenses or other permissions to import or export goods containing material from protected species will not constitute a basis for rescission or cancellation of the sale or the delay of payment of purchased items in accordance with these bidder Terms and Conditions of Sale. If you are not able to make what you consider to be a comfortable decision about an item or if you believe an item may be incorrectly described in our catalog, we suggest that you refrain from bidding on said item. RETURNS 7) Items may be considered for return under very specific conditions and within 30 days after the auction. It is important that you pay for and acquire your item in a timely fashion. In the event we have made a significant attribution or disclosure of condition error such that there is a major effect on the value of an item, please contact us immediately (within 30 days after the auction.)

The expert provides a written report with specific and detailed reasons as to why the item is not as it was represented to be. The written report must be submitted to TPAG. D. Our descriptions include what we deem to accurately portray an item’s general condition. However, opinions about condition can vary and as such, the auctioneer shall make the final determination in the possible event of a refund. E.

1241 1241 TAINO CEREMONIAL SEAT - Taino Duho or Ceremonial Seat, an important and exceedingly rare example of Pre-Columbian woodcraft. The backrest depicts an anthropic frog-like characterization surrounded by interlocking bird head symbols. The duho’s shoulders again denote bird head designs. A beautifully carved head with typical eye and mouth margins perfectly captures Taino graphic design models. This fine example is made from lignum vitae, a botanical member of the creosote family. Known for its natural resistance to insects and dense durable structure, lignum vitae was the chosen medium for ceremonial regalia; consequently, a number of surviving wooden ritual goods are known. Duhos this size are extremely uncommon, and those documented are in museum collections. 9” high, 19” long x 9 1/4”. $8,000 - $12,000

1242 TAINO TRANSFORMATION FIGURE - An Extraordinary and Rare Lignum Vitae Human to Crocodile Transformation Figure.

1243

1244 TAINO SNAKE PURGING STICK - Snake Form Purging Stick; with snake resting at the top of the form, its head fully incised with groups of concentric circles and open mouth. Its body drapes 1244 down to mid-center. Purging spatulas or vomit sticks were unique to the Taino culture. Made of a manatee rib, this piece was used prior to taking cohoba to purify the body. Snakes were affiliated with rivers and clouds. One of the Taino creation myths suggests Taino ancestors emerged from the mouth of a snake (cave). 10” long, nose to tail. $2,000 - $3,000 For additional details and images see our website, www.thomastonauction.com

1245 TAINO STONE BOWL - Taino Stone Bowl with Twin Anthropic Figures on Each Side. The other rim depicts interlocking bird heads. This may have been used to hold cohoba seeds.

Made of a granitoid-like stone with pecked surface. 3 1/4” high, 6 3/4” x 6”. $2,000 - $3,000

1245

1246 TAINO COHOBA BOWL - Large Anthropic Wooden Cohoba Bowl. This bowl was likely used as a cohoba vessel, and it rested on top of cohoba stands for the distribution of the entropic drug during hallucinogenic rituals.

2010 RARE FULL-LENGTH SHIP’S FIGUREHEAD FROM THE SIDEWHEELER SS “FRANKLIN”, WRECKED OFF LONG ISLAND, NY IN 1854 Magnificent Overscaled Full Body Standing Figure of Benjamin Franklin in carved and painted oak, salvaged from the 1854 wreck of the SS Franklin. Roughly 82” x 36” x 30”. Some surface losses, generational layers of early overpainting, tin patches, other repairs, feet replaced due to significant weathering from being displayed outdoors. Steamships of this era were the first to display full length figureheads, a development made possible by the change to a more vertical stem on steam driven hulls. $25,000 - $50,000 In the early morning hours of July 17, 1854, the 264-foot sidewheel steamer SS Franklin ran aground in the fog near Moriches on Long Island’s south shore. The ship was returning from Harve, France with a load of cargo and passengers. Once all passengers were safely taken ashore, operations began to recover what cargo and ship parts were salvageable. A local diver, Thomas Conklin, was one of the men who took part in the recovery efforts. It was he who claimed the ship’s seven foot tall figurehead of Benjamin Franklin. The statue stood in front of Conklin’s Bellport home for nearly 40 years. In the 1890s, when Conklin’s niece Grace Howell and family moved to a new house in Bellport, they brought Ben with them. He stood in that yard until shortly before World War I when the family moved to Philadelphia — with Ben in tow. Sometime in the 1920s, after the senior Howells had died, their son Alonzo moved the figurehead to his home in a small Pennsylvania village. There is no record of when, but the figurehead next resurfaced in the collection of the Sewall family of Bath, Maine, where for many years it had a prominent place in the family’s summer cottage in Small Point. In 1994 the figurehead was moved to the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath. In 2005, then-curator Nathan Lipfert, with help from the BellportBrookhaven Historical Society, was able to piece together, through book references, newspaper accounts and personal recollections, the figurehead’s journey to Maine that began on that fateful day in 1854. His account was published in the Museum’s membership publication The Rhumb Line in March 2006. See more at www.thomastonauction.com.
