HISTORICALLY IMPORTANT CARVED AND GILT WOOD CATHEAD FROM THE U.S.S. CONSTITUTION. This carving was removed from the U.S.S. Constitution at the time that it was docked in Boston Harbor. It was given to our consignor to completely restore and ready for its replacement. The square cat head carving was affixed to the projecting pieces of timber near the bow which served as crane booms for hoisting the anchors to the rail. They were located on the spar deck, forward of the furthest most gun in placements. Commonly known as catheads, they derived their name from the carvings or cast iron caps in the form of cats or lions, the cat in the 18th Century, being a Royal pet. These decorative heads were often plated in gold and were one of the few ornaments found on a warship. Once raised, the anchors would then be secured to the catheads until they were ordered cat off again. REFERENCE: For a similar carving made by John Bellamy see page 85 in “John Haley Bellamy Carver of Eagles” by Yvonne Brault Smith. PROVENANCE: The refurbishing of this carving was directed from a Navy Admiral to our client but was never accepted back or work paid for by the Navy. There is little documentation to this and we are relying upon our consignor for this information. SIZE: 18” x 15-1/2”. CONDITION: Very good. 9-28461 (10000-15000)

OUTSTANDING MINIATURE ON IVORY BY GODFRED MILLER WITH LETTER. Small miniature shows a half portrait of a little girl with curly brown hair, blue eyes and wearing a white dress. Oval form. Set behind a bevel piece of glass in an ornate ormolu/brass inset frame. Little frame is set into a larger rectangular frame with small ring top. It has a black heavy matte with fine craquelure. The girl is Mary Balch and the letter is as follows: “Received New York March 13, 1860 of Mr. Jos P. Balch Ten dollars for painting a miniature of a little girl Godfred Miller Mr. Balch, please send me the receipt of the miniature and let me know how you are pleased with the likeness.

OUTSTANDING ENGRAVED COIN SILVER MUG BY LINCOLN & FOSS, BOSTON. Lincoln & Foss worked in Boston, Massachusetts Circa 1850. Bottom also marked “Pure Silver Coin”. Tapered mug has hollow curved handle and molded top and bottom edge. A presentation area engraved with flowers and leaves surrounding a cartouche which states “Robert Gould Shaw Sturtevant from R. G. Shaw May 3rd, 1853”. It is possible that this mug was a gift from Robert Gould Shaw to a relative or friend named Robert Gould Shaw Sturtevant after himself. Shaw would have been 16 years old and coming from a wealthy family, this would be a proper gift for naming ones child after him. Robert Gould Shaw was son of a prominent Boston abolitionist family. He attended Harvard University and joined the 7th New York Regiment and marched with it to the defense of Washington in April 1861. Shaw raised and commanded the first regiment of black troops organized in a northern state. He led the 54th on an assault of Confederate Battery Wagner and he died in that pursuit. He was buried in a common grave with his black enlisted men. This assault led by Shaw is memorialized on the Shaw Memorial which stands in the Boston Commons in Massachusetts which was executed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. SIZE: 3-3/4” h.

IMPORTANT MINIATURE GOLDEN SPIKE WATCH FOB FROM THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD “GOLDEN SPIKE” OF 1869. From the original gold spike used at the ceremony of laying the final section of the Transcontinental Railroad. “The Last Spike” was 5-5/8” long and weighed 14.13 oz and 17.6 carats fine. It was inscribed on four sides with the names of the officers and directors, the donor and the salutation and on the top was the words “The Last Spike”. It now resides at Stanford University. The original spike had a nugget attached to its head that was broken off to be turned into souvenirs. The gold spike was presented by David Hewes of San Francisco and accepted by President Leland Stanford of the Central Pacific Railroad. The spike was made and finished by Schulz, Fischer & Mohrig, San Francisco. The solid gold miniature spike has a drilled hole on the pointed end. The spike is approximately 1” l and is inscribed on four sides. 1) “The Last Spike” 2) “Driven May 10. 1869.”. 3) “from D. Hewes.” 4) “to Benj..n Cox.” Spike is in very fine condition. Accompanying the spike is a collection of family material which is included and is described below. PROVENANCE: Consigned by the recipient through descent as follows: Benjamin Cox gave it to his son Benjamin Leroy Cox who gave it to his only child, Emily Cox Northup who gave it to her only child, Richard Cox Northup who married our consignor’s mother’s sister, Janet. Richard died in 1991 and Janet died in 2001. They had no children and our consignor was their eldest niece and inherited the contents of their home upon Janet’s death. Included is the Cox Family history which is presented in an old and quite thorough accounting of the family line which was written by George Tyler Northup and features the family of his wife Emily B. Cox who was the granddaughter of the miniature spike recipient. David Hewes’ sister (Mary Ann) married Benjamin Cox Senior which is the Cox family connection to the Transcontinental Railroad story. Included there are thirteen carte de visites, tintype, photograph on milk glass, miniature portrait on porcelain brooch, daguerreotype and two ambrotypes. These are described as follows: 4-1/4” x 3-1/4” daguerreotype of Benjamin Cox and Mary Ann Hewes Cox; 1-1/2” oval portrait on porcelain brooch inscribed “Mrs. Mary Ann Cox D.
