WONDERFUL EARLY 19TH CENTURY PICTORIAL SAMPLER BY ELIZABETH ANDERSON, 1811. The large sampler having a wide floral vine border encircling a rectangular area outlined with four potted plants, the pots having heart shapes, two large trees with a connecting flower vine and three arrangements of flowers in heart shaped holders. At the top center in a box “My Parents – Isaac & Mary Anderson My Brothers & Sisters – James, Sarah, Edward, Samuel, Wesley, Simon III, Isaac, Mary, Joseph B & Mary Anderson”. At the center is an eight-line verse “I envy no one’s birth or fame Their titles, train or dress Nor has my pride e’er stretched its arm Beyond what I possess I ask not, wish not to appear More beauteous, rich or gay Lord make me wiser every year And better every day” which is an excerpt of a Charles Lamb (1775-1834) poem written in 1809, titled “A Birth-Day Thought.” Below which is written “Elizabeth Anderson Her Sampler 1811″. Housed in an antique lemon gold molded wood frame with what appears to be an original glass having black gold edge. The frame and back paper having a Thomas Natt label from Philadelphia, PA. Thomas Natt worked as a carver, gilder, looking glass maker, importer & merchant in Philadelphia between 1809-1841. We believe through genealogical research it has been established that Elizabeth was born in 1794 and died in 1814. Her father, we believe was the Isaac Anderson who was the colorful and well known Indian fighter, courier to General Washington at Valley Forge, and U.S. Congressman. Her sister Sarah (1784-1852) married Mathias Pennypacker who became Governor of Pennsylvania. The Anderson Family resided in Chester, PA. There is no doubt of the origins of the family and the maker of this wonderful sampler. We have been unable to ascribe it to a particular Pennsylvania school. SIZE: Sight: 21″ x 17”. CONDITION: Some fading but still readable and colorful. There is a pencil size hole in the top box, some brown toning, otherwise good. 9-21739 (1,500-2,500)

OUTSTANDING HALF PLATE DAGUERREOTYPE OF CHARLES HENRY LEWIS, SEAMAN. The photo with hand tinting and gilt detail, circa 1840’s. The daguerreotype with modern seal placed into a black leather case with velvet interior. The image shows a man holding an extended telescope wearing a white overcoat, black vest, white shirt & large hat. His cheeks have been tinted red, all in a studio setting. The photograph was found in a small folder which was titled “Captain Lewis (great grandfather)” and this folder is present with the lot. Also accompanying the lot is the family Bible with a removed Lewis family register. In the back of the bible are photographs of five members. A copy of a family record starting with Eriah Lewis, 1796 and ending with Melissa Ann Lewis, 1833 includes a listing of Charles H. Lewis born September 26, 1819. A letter dated May 28, 1841 from New York by a J.M. Suttor with salutation line “I remain your friend & old shipmate”. The letter was written in New York and is to “Charles”. This letter talks about whaling, and is an update of things that have happened in the recent past stating “I have told you all the news that I can think of…”. A copy of the letter is included in the lot. While the bible contains no direct information about his career as a sailor, the birthplaces of his children give an indication of his whereabouts in the 1840’s and suggests that he could have been a sailor in the Great Lakes area. His first and fourth children were born in New Haven, NY on the southern shore of Lake Ontario in 1843 & 1849. The second child was born in Port Colborne, Ontario on the northeast shore of Lake Erie in 1845. The third & fifth children were born in Milwaukee, WI on the western shore of Lake Michigan in 1847 & 1852. In 1860 the census lists him as living in Milwaukee, WI and he was employed as the lighthouse keeper in Port Washington, WI from 1874-1880. In the 1860 census it lists his occupation as “sailor” yet the daguerreotype makes him appear to be a man of considerable experience. CONDITION: The plate is in very good condition. Under raking light a series of fine scratches can be seen on the lower portion of the image. Typical minor tarnishing at periphery, the reverse of the plate is silvered indicating that it was electroplated. The daguerreotype was recently re-sealed and the modern paper tape seals have been tinted to give the appearance of age. The image shows a great deal of detail and the figure stands out nicely with almost a three-dimensional appearance. Included is a conservation report from Paul Messier. 9-20792 (10,000-15,000)

RARE AND IMPORTANT CUSHING & WHITE STEAM LOCOMOTIVE AND TENDER WEATHERVANE WITH PAINTED SURFACES. Third quarter 19th century. This recently discovered extraordinary labeled example by Cushing & White of sheet tin, zinc and copper was discovered in an East Coast Estate. It retains remnants of early painted surface. Modeled with precise details including steam whistle and bell, headlamp, water tube, molded star decorations, twisted wire guides, etc., and mounted on rods serving as track and centering the original mounting rod. On the proper right side of the coal tender is mounted the oval brass maker’s plaque which reads “CUSHING & WHITE” above an oval cartouche with indecipherable markings beneath which is impressed “WALTHAM MASS.”. Similar weathervanes may be found in the Collection of Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum, another example is pictured in “TREASURY OF AMERICAN DESIGN”, Volume 1 by Clarence P. Hornung, illustrated on page 467, plate 1624. Additionally, a full bodied copper and iron locomotive with vertigree surface was last sold August 4th – 6th, 2006 at Northeast Auctions, Lot 652, as part of the Susan and Raymond Egan Collection. SIZE: 43″ l x 14″ h x 8-1/4″ w. PROVENANCE: From an East Coast Estate. CONDITION: When discovered, the locomotive and tender were with several original but disconnected pieces, dents and separations, much of which have been reattached. We are fortunate to have photographic documentation of the weathervane as found in discovery that illustrates the details that have been reattached. This photographic documentation is available for examination on request. There are some minor losses and very old imperfections, all of which were untouched to keep the weathervane as virgin and original as possible. PAINTED SURFACES: This very old worn surface has existed for a very long time, perhaps before the turn of the century. A truly exciting discovery with an undisturbed surface. 9-21602 (35,000-65,000)

The reverse exhibits the small fracture that supposedly exists in all of the originals. This surface fracture begins just inside the rim edge and travels up into the water of the battle scene.

THE COMPLETE MID 19TH CENTURY BRASS FOUNDRY OF WILLIAM H. WEBB OF WARREN, MAINE. This extraordinary intact foundry is considered one of a kind and includes three hand written day books from 1853 to 1857. The day books are a daily journal of Webb’s activities which revolved around his brass foundry. The foundry is comprised of the majority of items as inventoried in the Estate of William H. Webb, dated February 8th, 1869. It includes two treadle lathes; a fly press; a rolling mill; various leg vices, dye plates, anvil, tongs, punches, drills, and shears; all which are listed in the inventory. Remarkably, it also includes hundreds of items including patterns for andirons, tool, candlesticks, burner parts, rough castings & other castings, etc. There is also a small book which is hand written having children’s names & ages and also a day book entry for the year 1828. Work in progress includes buckles for harnesses in all states of completion, burners for whale oil lamps, brass pattern for andiron parts, candlesticks, and harness hardware. The collection includes two pair of signed Webb andirons, a pair of candlesticks, and two whale oil lamps. There are crucibles, a bench, the punch set used to sign his name, and much more. The punch press is presently set up with a die that cuts the tubes for whale oil burners. William Webb started his career in Boston, MA and was the son of Barnabas Webb, a Boston Silversmith and grandson of William Homes, Sr., a Boston Silversmith and nephew of Benjamin Franklin. He worked for three years as an apprentice to Thomas Leach, a Boston brass founder. He completed his six-year apprenticeship under Sam Austin, another Boston brass founder. He left Boston and moved to Warren, Maine in October of 1799. The brass foundry was established at that time and continued until 1856. The 1857 map of Lincoln County shows the Webb brass foundry near the family farm.This may be the only intact brass foundry with detailed inventory and history in the country. This is truly a time capsule of historic significance! NOTE: In 1966 William Buckminster, an antique dealer from Owls Head, Maine, discovered an extraordinary find. In the hay loft of the William H. Webb Estate farm he found the remains of the Webb Foundry which was located nearby in Warren, Maine. Mr. Buckminster gathered and moved everything he could find to his building where, upstairs, he set the foundry as if it were still being used. He continued to gather items of Webb’s from neighbors and townspeople. Included in these additions are the finish andirons & candlesticks. REFERENCE: Maine Antique Digest, April 1983, Extensive 4-page article on William Homes Webb, Brassfounder, Warren, Maine by Paul Ackerman. SIZE: All pieces and inventory will fit in a commercial van.

RARE AND IMPORTANT PINE AND OAK KNEADING TABLE. Early 18th century. The thick pine five-board top, each seam with a butterfly tenon above the square frieze and joined by sliding brackets attached to the top and the frieze. As such, the top slides above the frieze opening to a compartmented well revealing an original receptacle for a lock, now absent. The underside of the top displays the area where the original lock engaged the top to prevent it from opening. The square frieze section of dovetailed construction decorated on three sides with scrolled fielded panels above a molded plinth. This section is then joined on dowels to a shaped and scalloped trestle base. The trestle base with scalloped and shaped edges again joined by square trusses fixed by wedges and centering a decorative panel with molded edges and pierced heart. This trestle base is additionally fitted with a single drawer with canted sides conforming to the shape of the table. The drawer front is also decorated with a pair of scrolled fielded panels. The whole constructed with exposed dovetails. The drawer retains the original iron strap backing for the original pull which is now absent. The base of the feet is joined by flat mortised shelf-like stretchers. SIZE: 30″ h x 41-1/2″ l x 35-1/2″ d.

The entire base of the table exhibits a very dark patina, the outer surfaces showing fairly extensive degrees of wear. The table as a whole remains in very good condition for its age. 9-20883 (3,000-5,000)
