Auctioneer’s Note The exceptional array of art, antiques and historic rarities presented in our Winter 2020 sale will be a perfect diversion from the late February chill. Friday’s auction features historic ephemera and memorabilia, weaponry, Asian artifacts, and designer items. Highlights include a large Civil War era collection featuring a rare 1864 Lincoln and Johnson presidential campaign flag and 1862 album with Lincoln, Hamlin, and congressional autographs. A tin snuff box owned by Joseph Meacham, founder of the Mt. Lebanon Shaker community in 1780, will also be presented. Among the Asian group, a Ming Dynasty bronze Guanyin figure and a 19th century figural carved jade bowl stand out. There will also be ephemera and artwork from the family of spiritualist James V. Mansfield and artist John Worthington Mansfield. Finally, there are fur coats, designer handbags, rare books, and Native American artifacts. On Saturday, we offer an outstanding selection of antiques and fine art, featuring works by George Inness and John George Brown, plus ship paintings by Samuel Walters, Antonio Jacobsen and others. A full-length Roman marble sculpture depicting Asclepius, god of medicine will be presented, along Kaja Veilleux Owner, Appraiser & Auctioneer with a 19th century carved eagle from NYC’s Tavern on the Green restaurant. Octavo editions of John James Audubon’s “Birds of America” and “Quadrupeds of America” will be presented, along with a rare 19th century terrestrial floor globe by Newton & Son, London. Antique furniture includes a Pilgrim century blanket chest and 19th century Chinese camphorwood brass bound campaign chest. Finally, oriental carpets, weathervanes, decoys, ship models, barometers, and early ceramics are all part of the day’s mix. On Sunday, the emphasis is on late 19th and 20th century decorative arts, led by paintings by Andrew Wyeth, Maurice De Vlaminck, Grahame Sydney, Victor Vasarely, and Raoul Dufy; and sculpture by Robert Laurent and Paul Troubetzskoy. Two important Faberge pieces will be offered – a silver and cut crystal centerpiece bowl and a carved stone elephant with diamond eyes. Sunday’s sale also includes a Georg Jensen silver tray, Cartier hardstone desk clock set with gemstones, plus estate jewelry and a large collection of pocketwatches. Sunday also includes early and mid-20th century furniture, clocks, trade signs, porcelain & art glass, and Russian icons. Please join us! — Kaja & the staff

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.

Brown was rushed through trial and hanged on Dec 2, 1859, and in spite of Sennott’s strenuous efforts, Aaron Dwight Stevens was hung on March 16, 1860. Two other letters are from Abolitionist Anna Temple Brown to US Representative from 1067 Pennsylvania William Morris Davis, written from Eaglewood, Dec 17th, 1859 and Jan 4th, 1860, asking for help raising funds and lauding Brown. Davis and his wife Elizabeth were outstanding abolitionists from Philadelphia. She refers to enclosing Sennott’s letter. Communiques such as these bordered on treason at the time, (Robert E. Lee led the US troops that captured Brown and Stevens), it is surprising that Morris kept these letters in his scrapbook. $600 - $800 For additional details and images see our website, www.thomastonauction.com
