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!

2353

Charles Thomson (1729 -1824) was an Irish-born Patriot leader, who served as the secretary of the Continental Congress in its entirety. Captain Samuel Richards (1755-1822) was born and raised in Farmington, Conn. He joined up in 1775 at age 20, served until 1781, taking part in many battles. Afterwards, he returned home, where he was Postmaster for 20 years. Capt. Richards kept a diary that was first published in 1909. To quote the publisher of the 2014 edition, Big Byte Books: “As a Connecticut Captain in America’s Revolutionary War, Samuel Richards lived through the carnage and deprivations that were the cost of freedom from England. His diary is important for its vivid descriptions of life in the ranks during battle, starvation, and the great events of his day. Along the way, he saw Washington and Lafayette, fought the British, lost friends, and wrote his experiences for a later date. We have retained Captain Richards’ quirky, inconsistent spelling and capitalization. Every memoir of the American Revolution provides us with another view of the war that created the United States”. Copy included. $3,000 - $5,000 176

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.

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.

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.)

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 with gesso surfaces, frames, mirrors, furniture, etc. that exhibit loss/detachment due to normal handling (no obvious signs of neglect or abuse) are exempt from damage claims. 31) If the shipping address is different than the credit card billing address, TPAG will hold shipment for 30 days from the date of payment. 32) TPAG will not alter any catalog descriptions or declare less than the full purchase price on any international customs paperwork. All international customs documents and costs are the responsibility of the buyer. 33) All items must be picked up from our auction facility within 30 days of the sale unless prior arrangements have been made. For items unclaimed after 30 days: A. Items left at TPAG for more than 30 days will be subject to a storage fee of $50 per item, per month to be paid prior to collection of items. B. Items left at TPAG over 45 days after the date of sale may, at the sole discretion of TPAG, be re-sold on buyer’s behalf. The above costs of storage, plus any other costs directly related to the items and an auctioneer’s commission of 30% will be subtracted from the proceeds. C. 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.
