Hear what people are saying about Thomaston Place Auction Galleries What a wonderful experience I had recently! I cannot say enough about the professional and friendly staff, from the start all the way thru shipping it was handled with so much care and it was like I was a big part of the Auction although my purchase was not a huge one. It is very refreshing to deal with people that actually care! I highly recommend this Auction House and will certainly be back in the future. —Anonymous A top-notch New England auction house with real treasures regularly offered. Staff went above and beyond to help with shipping. —Axel h. I had a very good experience with my purchase. The staff were friendly and helpful during the bidding process. The item I purchased was exactly as stated in the auction guide. I do not live in Maine and chose to use the shipper suggested by Thomaston Place. It allowed me to avoid state sales tax on my purchase. In addition, I didn’t have to get involved in coordinating the transfer of the item from the auction house to the shipper. Thomaston Place stressed that buyers had the option to use their own shipper [but] the shipping arrangements offered through [the auction house] worked well for me. —Nancy h. The best auction house I have dealt with! —Anonymous 76 For additional details and images visit our website

With nicknames like Thomas “ Yellowstone” Moran and the “American Turner,” Hudson River School artist, and artist of the American West, Thomas Moran was perhaps the most influential artist of his generation. The combination of Turner’s color and style, along with the mysticism of the American West would be the foundation for his art, fame, and even the shaping of the country. Moran’s work would be a deciding factor in 1872 when the US Congress set aside land in Yellowstone as the first National Park.

With membership in the National Academy of Design, solo art exhibitions at Smith College of Art, Fort Wayne Art Museum, and the Farnsworth Art Museum, and an honorary Doctorate from Bates College in 1957, Thon's resume is impressive. His style was largely self-taught through experimentation and exploration. He widely traveled in his younger days, but found the greatest influence in Port Clyde, Maine where is began living shortly after World War II. It is in Maine where Thon began working in the more abstract, yet identifiable, work he is best known for. And he was prolific, even continuing to work after macular degeneration had left him legally blind. As mentioned, Thons’ work is just beginning to get the recognition which seems well earned. Thomaston Place Auction Galleries has the record price of $14,000 for one of Thons’ oil paintings (8/29/21).

Synonymous with Pop Art, Andy Warhol’s early years were in Pennsylvania, studying at the Carnegie Institute of Technology where he received a BFA. Warhol would move to New York in 1949 and soon would obtain success as a commercial illustrator. By 1960 he began producing paintings and drawings of highly recognizable commercial products like Coca-Cola and Campbell's soup cans, with his first solo show in 1962. Eventually substituting these early drawings with the readily reproducible silk screen process, Warhol was intentionally blurring the line between commercial illustration and fine art. His famed studio, “The Factory” industrialized the art process itself by lifting the commonplace and elevating it to art. By the 1970s after surviving an assassination attempt, Warhol's art largely shifted to portrait work of the rich and famous. All with bold color, hard lines, and easily recognizable subject matter, Andy Warhol became as famous as the subjects portrayed.

Widely considered one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, Spaniard Pablo Picasso was primarily a painter although he worked in a multitude of media, even ceramics. Residing in France for most of his adult life, Picasso is credited with co-founding the cubist movement, inventing constructed sculpture, and co-inventing collage. His work ranges from realism to surrealism, is often categorized by dominance of hue (i.e., blue period) or theme (like his later works with African masks), but Picasso was always working and the very definition of prolific. Living to an elderly age of 91, Time Magazine summarized his life best in a 1980 publication stating that “To the end....

Renowned Cape Cod artist whose early works were traditional painted furniture in the style of Dutch and Swedish work. As his popularity grew, clients requested more 2-dimensional art and it was at this time that Cahoon began painting 3195 in his own style many of the mermaid images he is known for. Still working in a folk style, he would paint mermaids doing anything from playing golf to having surgery. These paintings were, at first, executed on plywood, but later he found that Masonite better resembled the furniture surface he was accustomed to working on. His work was highly sought after during the latter half of his life and continues to sell well at auction today.

Waldo Peirce owned an ancestral home in Frankfort, Maine. His family went back five or six generations. $5,000-10,000


By all accounts, a colorful character, even dubbed “America’s Renoir,” Waldo Peirce was a prominent artist and one of the best-known expatriates running in social 3250 circles with Earnest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. An American Field service volunteer two years prior to the US entry into World War I, many of Hemingway's written accounts of ambulance driving during the war are Peirce’s firsthand experiences. This Maine native painted in much the way he lived as his paintings are bold, colorful, and often have an unfinished look to them. Although having said late in life that he never worked a day in his life, 50 years of prolific paintings he left us with prove otherwise.

Conditions of Sale Preserva�on Genera�onTM

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; 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. Please take time to familiarize yourself with our terms 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 its 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. We will make every effort to answer all submitted questions in a timely manner however, we cannot guarantee that a request submitted will be answered prior to the auction date. Neither TPAG nor its 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 purposes. 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.) We will review under the following circumstances: A. The item has been paid for and the buyer has possession of the item. B. The buyer, at his/her own expense, must have the item reviewed by an independent party who is approved by TPAG, and is a recognized expert within the field of the item in question. C. 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. The timeline for this process is 30 days from the date of the auction. In the event a committee or review board must convene to review the item, TPAG must be notified in order to extend the time beyond the 30 day limit. Otherwise after 30 days, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. F. Once TPAG has accepted the ruling of the expert(s), the buyer is to return the item to TPAG at buyer’s expense. In order to be eligible for a refund, the item must be returned in the same condition it was in when it left TPAG’s possession. G. In the event a refund is issued, it will be for the cost of the item, buyer’s premium and any sales tax paid. The refund will be made in the same form as the payment of the original transaction. 8) No Chargeback Policy — Purchasers agree that disputes of any nature will not be resolved by a credit card chargeback and further agree to refrain from filing any chargeback claim against Thomaston Place Auction Galleries and/or its credit card merchant. By purchasing with us, the purchaser waives the right to initiate a chargeback and furthermore agrees to pay a minimum of $500 plus administrative fees, attorney fees, and/or any other charges associated with responding to said chargeback. 9) Jewelry, Timepieces, Stamps & Coins: All sales are final. There are no returns or refunds for any reason. Jewelry and items with mechanical parts such as clocks, timepieces, mechanical banks, music boxes, etc. are sold “as-is” on the day of sale and may require servicing. The lack of a condition report does not imply that the item or lot is free from imperfections, defects or wear and tear of aging. This includes but is not limited to deficient stones, needed repair or defects.

GENERAL INFORMATION: 10) Bidder recognition: The auctioneer shall only accept bids from properly registered bidders who place bids live on the auction floor, by absentee bid, telephone bid, or online bid. The auctioneer shall acknowledge the top bidder as the winner. In the event of a disputed bid, the auctioneer will have sole and exclusive authority to resolve the dispute and determine the winning bidder. 11) The auctioneer has sole discretion and reserves the right to: A. Reject or refuse to accept any bid or bidder that may be deemed inappropriate for any reason. B.

F. Additionally, TPAG may report the buyer’s name to other auction houses and online platforms regarding creditworthiness and restrict the buyer from future bidding at TPAG and our associated online platforms.

28) On completion of payment TPAG will help coordinate shipping. Please contact TPAG with any questions. 29) If either someone else other than the buyer, or a shipper other than one represented on the invoice, will be picking up auction items, the buyer must inform us in advance so we may release the items. Items for shipment will not be released without an initialed release form or a verbal release by the buyer. 30) Shipments will be insured for the full purchase price unless other coverage is requested by the buyer. Any damage or delivery issues (regardless of any assistance offered by TPAG) are between the buyer and the shipper.

Items unsold or unclaimed by 180 days from the date of this agreement will become the sole property of TPAG and may be sold or otherwise disposed of without reporting or liability of any sort to the buyer. 34) The inability to choose an acceptable shipping option is NOT a reason for non-payment of an item’s full purchase price. 35) Attention online bidders: Any items won during auction will not be available for pick-up until the second business day after the auction. Please call ahead! 36) Anyone planning to pick up items from TPAG, should call 24 hours in advance to make arrangements.

New England’s Trusted Auction & Appraisal Professionals

SOLD: $13,200 This miniature Persian Qur’an was brought to us on Free Appraisal Day. The consignor’s father was a US diplomat who purchased it as a gift for his wife in the 1950s. 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!
