17th CENTURY COLONIAL ERA DOG-LOCK LONG FOWLER.

Quite rare are examples of dog-lock Long Fowlers that were utilized by the first colonists in America. The first colonists in Jamestown and Plymouth utilized match-locks but by 1630, the transition to dog-locks had became in earnest. The common arms supplied by the Massachusetts Bay Company are known to have contained 6-1/2′ long fowling pieces, which this gun measures. This information is published by Harold Peterson on page 44 of his 1956 Arms and Armor in Colonial America. The only markings on this gun are a hand engraved “29/F” on breech which could represent the year 1629. “Judging from the number of dog-locks used in Colonial America that are still extant today, it would appear that type of lock was more widely used than any other from about 1625-1675. Dog-locks and parts of dog-locks have been found in quantity in the excavations of 17th Century sites, and several well preserved and well authenticated specimens exist in public and private collections throughout the country”. Few arms in this configuration have ever been publicly offered in auction, especially retaining this massive 62″ octagonal breech 75 caliber barrel which tapers to round and then terminates in an octagonal flared muzzle. PROVENANCE: Estate of Siro R. Toffolon, of Old Lyme, CT. CONDITION: Forestock is restored from muzzle back 39″ as are ramrod pipes and ramrod. Otherwise, gun is good, sound, iron patina. Stock has large chip forward of lock and long hairline crack about 10″ forward lock on right side. Mechanism appears functional. 49597-13 (2,000-4,000) – Lot 2001

SAMUEL DROWNE, PISCATAQUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE SIGNED SILVER AMERICAN REVOLUTIONARY WAR EAGLE-POMMEL OFFICERS SWORD OF CAPT SAMUEL STORER.

This exact sword is pictured as plate 44 in Harold Peterson’s American Silver Mounted Swords, 1700-1815, 1955. Peterson in his text describes this sword as follows: By Samuel Drowne, Piscataqua (Portsmouth, N.H.) 1749-1815. Belonged to Samuel Storer of Newport, R.I., 1752-1815. A typical form of the weapon with pierced and decorated counterguard. The obverse branch of the counterguard has been broken off. The slightly curved blade has two narrow fullers and is decorated with etched designs for the first third of its length. The scabbard is russet leather tooled with straight parallel lines as well as short punched lines. There are three silver mounts with scrolled edges and decorative bandings. Suspension is provided for by two carrying rings. The reverse side of the throat is engraved “S. Drowne/Piscataqua”. 33-1/2 inches overall, blade 27-1/4 inches by 1-1/8 inches wide at the hilt”. September 1940 article by Stephen Decatur in American Collector Magazine features this sword and other rare silver by Drowne. Excerpts from this article tell a bit of this Patriot silversmiths history. “Undoubtedly, the name of Samuel Drowne is as well known as that of any of the early silversmiths of Portsmouth, NH, but locally, at least, it is more generally remembered because of the prominent part its owner played in the affairs of his community during the period of the American Revolution and in the years immediately thereafter. Like many other American silversmiths of the time, he was an ardent supporter of the patriot cause and, in fact, he was concerned in an affair which, since it antedates the fights at Lexington and Concord, is considered by many historians as marking the true beginning of the Revolution. Early in December 1774, a rumor became current in Boston that the British intended to send troops to occupy Ft William and Mary at the mouth of Portsmouth Harbor. On the 13th of the month, Paul Revere galloped to Portsmouth with letters to the Committee of Correspondence there reporting this expected move. The following evening a party of several hundred men from Portsmouth and neighboring towns went down the river in boats and, in spite of the fire of the small garrison, landed, stormed, and captured the fort. As it turned out there were not casualties on either side, a happy chance which may explain why this exploit has not achieved greater prominence. The originator and one of the leaders of it was Captain Thomas Pickering, Drowne’s brother-in-law, and the silversmith was a member of his company. The principal object of the patriots in this affair was to secure the powder stored in the fort before the British troops could get it and upwards of 400 barrels of the precious material were taken and secretly removed upriver to places of safety. This part of the program was engineered by Drowne and he arranged it so successfully that the authorities were unable to recover a single barrel. Later, some of this powder was used at the Battle of Bunker Hill where, it would seem, there was, unfortunately, not enough. Samuel, the silversmith, a son of a preacher, was born in Providence, RI in 1749 and died in Portsmouth, NH in 1815. He married Mary, a daughter of Capt. Thomas Pickering, one of the largest landowners of Portsmouth, a prominent citizen and a military officer who was killed in battle with the Indians at Casco to the eastward. The Capt. Thomas Pickering of the Ft. William and Mary exploit was, of course, a brother of the silversmith’s wife. He was captain of privateers and was killed in 1779 during the capture of a British letter of marque, a vessel much more powerful than the 20-gun ship Hampden, which he commanded. A few months after the capture of the fort, Samuel Drowne was placed in charge of the leading Tories in his neighborhood to see that they conducted themselves discreetly. In 1778 he was a member of Col. John Langdon’s Company of Light Horses, an organization especially formed from among the gentlemen of Portsmouth, to assist in the operations in Rhode Island, and was with it during the attempted capture of Newport. In 1954 this sword was loaned by Stephen Decauter to the exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art display of American silver mounted swords. Capt. Samuel Storer was originally a cavalryman and later the commander of a privateer. He, like the sword’s maker, was part of a very prominent Portsmouth family and married the sister of Tobias Lear who was George Washington’s long time confidant and secretary. There is a famous incident when George Washington as President visited Samuel Storer at the Lear home and blessed Samuel’s son “GEORGE WASHINGTON STORER”. George Washington Storer would go on to be an American admiral continuing a long line of Storer family American military officers. James Julia Auctions in February of 2010 sold an archive descended in the Lear-Storer-Decauter family, including other Storer swords, uniforms, etc. This archive included a map of the Yorktown battlefield that sold in excess of $1,000,000. PROVENANCE: Stephen Decatur, Estate of Siro R. Toffolon, of Old Lyme, CT. CONDITION: Very good overall. Scabbard is constructed with leather veneer over wooden core with several leather sections missing as can be seen in photos.

REVOLUTIONARY WAR COMMISSION OF CAPTAIN BENJAMIN CONKLIN.

Commission is signed by Connecticut Governor Jonathan Trumbull May 25, 1781 a Captain in the 2nd Company of the 14th Connecticut Regiment. Previously, Conklin was Captain of several privateers. Conklin is mentioned in several accounts of included research taking prizes of 7,000 gallons of rum, another schooner loaded with fish and 75,000 feet of mahogany and 30 tons of log wood. Conklin is associated with at least 3 vessels between 1775 and 1779; “Spy”, “Revenge”, and “John” which had a crew of six men and one gun. Conklin was commissioned commander of the “John” May 8, 1779. On September 26, 1777, Conklin was chased by a British Man of War and schooner of 12 guns trying to cut him off from land on his way to Newport. The English schooner ran on at Watch Hill Reef during the chase. A brisk fire was kept up between the English schooner and Connklin for several hours. The schooner remained on the reef until next morning and set on fire and then her men went aboard the Man of War’s boat and left her, she was soon blown up by her magazine. The guns, some small arms, and anchors were saved, and a man was found dead by the side of her. Captain Conklin escaped unhurt. Conklin’s commission is framed but there is also an original early roll up leather document pouch or wallet and another leather wrapper that originally contained the commission along with an envelope stating “Commission of Capt Benjamin Conklin, Revolutionary War”. PROVENANCE: Estate of Siro R. Toffolon, of Old Lyme, CT. CONDITION: Commission is framed, apparently on an archival board with plastic corners holding document in place.

FINE FRENCH AND INDIAN WAR POWDER HORN AND COMMISSIONS OF ABNER CURTIS, ALONG WITH HIS REVOLUTIONARY WAR COMMISSION.

Professional scrimshawed horn measuring 15″ long and 3″ diameter base, “ENSIGN ABNER CURTIS’S / HORN MADE AT CROWN POINT SEPT 26 1759″. Two Colonial British commissions signed by Thomas Fitch, Governor of the Colony of Connecticut (March 22, 1759 – Ensign. March 24, 1760 – Lieutenant). Crown Point played an important role in the French and Indian War with a large British garrison built in 1759 after the French had been pushed back into Canada. Later during the American Revolution, on May 12, 1775 the garrison at Crown Point was taken from the British by ‘THE GREEN MOUNTAIN BOYS” and later used as a staging area by Benedict Arnold for the Navy on Lake Champlain. The fort was abandoned by the Americans in 1777 and the British held this fort until abandoned 1780. The United States, with the defeat of the British, had no need for this fort and it was left to deteriorate. Crown Point is now a historic park rebuilt to the way it looked in 1759. Powder horns made at Crown Point are well known from French and Indian War and later from the Revolutionary War. There is at least one additional Curtis family horn known also carved at Crown Point. An interesting note, this horn and three commissions offered here were displayed in 1906 during the centennial celebration of Meriden, CT. Revolutionary War commission to Lt. Abner Curtis signed by Governor John Trumbull, March 21, 1777 is framed with French & Indian War examples. Also included in this lot are several other framed and loose 18th Century family documents and two family bibles.

REVOLUTIONARY WAR ERA TRICORN HAT.

A difficult object to find for the Revolutionary War collector is an original tricorn hat. The cocked hat was the most popular form of gentleman’s headgear circa 1750-1800. This particular piece of headgear is in fine condition with a hand sewn polished cotton liner, hand sewn leather sweatband, cockade, ribbons and felted edging. The cockade device exhibits a hand embroidered six-pointed star sewn over most likely a brass or pewter button. There is an old pasted ink label inside crown which reads “ASEL STEERE’S PROPERTY”. The research included locates an Asel Steere born 1780 in Gloucester, RI, dying in 1871. Asel had two older brothers William and Richard who would have been 16 and 17 years old at the close of the war. Asel’s father, Stephen, was a Quaker and pacifist and did not serve during the war. Also in records is listed in the 1777 military census the names of 15 different Steere’s including an Asa all aged 16-50 that were able to bear arms. Regardless of who originally owned this hat, if not Asel, the hat still appears to be correct and of the era and we have never see another contemporary tricorn offered for sale and overall condition is excellent for display. PROVENANCE: Estate of Siro R. Toffolon, of Old Lyme, CT. CONDITION: Very good overall. Insect damage to scattered areas. Nap on velvet ribbons and edging worn and only about 50% intact. Lining and sweatband both fairly sound. 49476-125 (6,000-8,000) – Lot 2010

CONDITION: Very good overall. Some tack heads raised due to wood shrinkage. Head is also loose as normally seen from shrinkage, but original cloth spacer still intact. Overall surface has good patina. Head and haft match well and appear original from manufacture. Applied decorations show numerous small scratches and bruises as expected. Crescent moon on eye is slightly lifting. 49789-4 (15,000-20,000) – Lot 2024

REVOLUTIONARY WAR MINUTEMAN “FRANCIS CARR” POWDER HORN.

This exact horn is pictured in Tom Grinslade’s Powder Horns: Documents of History. Grinslade properly describes this historic horn as follows: The caption on the horn reads, “MARCH * 14 * 1775 * FRANCIS CARR*,” a date which indicates that the horn was made prior to the conflict at Lexington and Concord, perhaps when Carr first joined the Minutemen. The Royal British Coat of Arms, a hell-horse, a panel with the bust of a man labeled “CARR,” along with several birds, a snake and a deer decorate the horn. Pvt. Francis Carr marched on the alarm of April 19, 1775, in the Minuteman Company of Capt. Ebenezer Colby in Col. Johnson’s Regiment. During his service of six days, he went from Haverhill to Cambridge, a distance of about 35 miles, as listed in the Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War. The total number of men who are reported in the records to have marched on the Lexington alarm was about four thousand. Francis Carr, 1751-1821, was the father of U. S. Congressman James Carr and the founder of a Bangor, Maine political family. Carr was born in Newbury, MA moving to Haverhill and represented Haverhill in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. He is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Bangor. A copy of text referenced where this horn is pictured is also included. There is a similar Revolutionary War horn with a much later 19th Century brass spout from powder flask on display with Revolutionary War arms at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. The word “Washington” appears to be a later addition on “freshened” inscription. SIZE: 13″ l x 2-3/4″ d at base. CONDITION: Very good overall. One iron tack slightly raised. Minor insect damage as can be seen in photos. 49851-1 (6,000-9,000) – Lot 2025

EXTRAORDINARILY RARE AND HISTORIC REVOLUTIONARY WAR POWDER HORN USED BY MINUTEMAN OLIVER BUTTRICK AT BATTLE OF CONCORD, APRIL 19, 1775.

In untouched, original condition and inscribed “Oliver Buttrick, OCT. 1774”, this important powder horn was carried at the first battle of the American Revolution. Early in April, 1775 word was passed on to the British command that rebel colonists had amassed arms and powder now hidden in Concord, MA. Lt. Col. Francis Smith was commander of about 700 British army regulars in Boston and on the morning of April 19th an expedition would march from Boston to Concord to capture and destroy these arms. Word of this action was discovered by the colonists and immediately spread to local militias. One of those individuals responsible for the alarm was Paul Revere who was immortalized by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in the poem “The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere”. The British arrived at Lexington first, however the minuteman militia had not had ample time to assemble in force and fell back. The British regulars then moved on to Concord. Concord however, was a different story. Enough time had passed so that a large contingent of minutemen had been alerted and a formidable force held the North Bridge in Concord defying the British regulars. The confrontation eventually erupted into gun fire which became known as “the shot heard round the world”. This historic battle is known as the first true major military engagement of defiance from the colonists with the British Empire. As such some consider it the most important military engagement in the annals of the evolution of the United States. Young Oliver Buttrick was one of seven Buttrick family members to join with other minutemen in this historic conflict. Oliver’s uncle, Major John Buttrick led the advance at the Old North Bridge that day. As referenced in his detailed pension application of 1834, Oliver was in David Brown’s Company and served alongside his brother William, who was killed three weeks later at Bunker Hill. Fellow Minutemen that day included Abiel Buttrick, Daniel Buttrick, Tilly Buttrick, Willard Buttrick and John Buttrick, Jr. (the 14-year old fifer). In 1901, George Tolman read his paper “The Concord Minutemen” to the Concord Antiquarian Society, listing the above named Buttrick family members in his account. Oliver Buttrick would serve under the command of three of the very same men with whom he fought shoulder to shoulder on April 19th; notably, Sgt. Abishai Brown, Capt. James Barrett and Capt. George Minot. As stated in the 1896 publication, Massachusetts Soldiers and Sailors of the Revolutionary War, Oliver Buttrick fought in such celebrated arenas as Point Shirley, Bennington, Ticonderoga, Fishkills, and Soldiers Fortune (near West Point). He also performed guard duty on a prison ship in Boston Harbor. The date on the horn is significant. Unrest among the Patriots started years before this first skirmish. In the summer and fall of 1774, rebellion was at fever pitch. In fact, on October 4, 1774, the recently formed Massachusetts Provincial Congress issued what amounted to its own declaration of independence and on October 24, 1774, that same angry and determined Congress authorized the procurement or armaments. 18th Century American soldiers and militiamen identified their horns with their name and often the date it was made. The use of inked vellum under glass lens was a rare form of decoration and seen on only a few other 18th Century examples. This powder horn is among the few existing objects that can be directly associated with the first Battle for American Independence and to our knowledge this powder horn is the only Colonial horn used at this historic confrontation to ever be offered for sale. In fact, to our knowledge, nothing used by a minuteman at the Concord engagement has been sold at auction in many years. This is indeed a truly extraordinarily rare and historic artifact and presents a once in a lifetime opportunity. Oliver Buttrick’s Historical and Biographical Information: Oliver descended from one of the oldest Concord families, dating back to William Buttrick, who arrived from England in 1635. (In difference sources, the family name is also spelled Buttrike and Butterick). According to Concord Registers, Book II, Oliver was born in Concord, Massachusetts, on March 7, 1757. He was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Buttrick. His siblings were William (b. July 13, 1754), Marcy Buttrick (b. October 10, 1775), Amos (b. April 27, 1758), and a child who was born and who died on January 22, 1761. His parents, Samuel Buttrick and Elizabeth Blood were married October 2, 1750, by Rev. Daniel Bliss of Concord. Oliver’s father, Samuel, was born in Concord on November 16, 1718, and died there January 14, 1814, at the age of 96. Oliver’s Grandfather, Deacon Jonathan Buttrick, was born on April 4, 1690 and died March 23, 1767. On December 19, 1718, he married Elizabeth Wooley, who was born April 8, 1700 and, after giving birth to 14 children, died January 26, 1772. Deacon Jonathan’s father, Samuel Buttrick, was born January 12, 1654 and died August 8, 1726. On June 21, 1677, in Concord, this Samuel Buttrick married another Elizabeth Blood, born in 1656 and died on March 7, 1733. Samuel Buttrick’s father was Wiliam Buttrick, mentioned above as the first of the family in North America. Most of these ancestors are buried in the Old Hill Burying Ground in Concord. On March 30, 1786, Oliver Buttrick married Sarah Hall from Ashby, Massachusetts, which is 28 miles from Concord. Their marriage was recorded in Ashburnham, Massachusetts. Their children were: Asa b?; Eli b. 1887; Sarah b. Ashburnham, Nov. 2, 1791; Sarah m. May 18, 1825, to Ebenezer Ellenwood of Pelham, N.H.; Jonas b. July 5, 1797 d., Jan 13, 1814 and another Jonas Buttrick d. 1865 Pelham, N.H., Nathan b. Mar. 6, 1799. Ephraim, b?; Betsy b. 1801 (or, 1805,) d. Bedford, Oct. 1, 1889, m. in Pelham, N.H. on Mar 31, 1825, to David Fitch of Billerica. Fitch was b. Feb 20, 1802, d. May 19, 1851; Asanath, b. Pelham, N.H. abt. 1807, m. April 5, 1827, to Jesse Robinson, Jr. of Bedford. After the war, Oliver and Sarah lived much of their lives in Pelham, N.H., where their children were born and raised and where most of them died. At 77 years old, Oliver filed for his Revolutionary War pension. In his pension, he states that when he officially entered into the service of his country he was 5′ 11″, age 21, and that he was living in Concord. Oliver encountered difficulty having his claim for a pension processed through the War Department. But with testimony from numerous parties, the application was finally approved in December of 1834. One individual, Thaddeus Blood, (presumably his cousin as his mother’s maiden name was Blood) the last member of his company living in Concord, wrote and affidavit on behalf of Oliver stating that they had served and fought together during many battles of the Revolutionary War. Interesting Note: The history of Windham, New Hampshire, (Morrison, Leonard Allison, The History of Windham in New Hampshire [Rockingham County] 1719-1883; Boston, Mass.: Cupples, Upham & Co. 1883) page 192 states: “Jams P. Hughes has an old powder horn marked October 1774. It was the property of Oliver Buttrick of Pelham.” We may never know how James P. Hughes came into possession of the powder horn. However, we do know that he was a contemporary and neighbor of several of Oliver’s children in Pelham, N.H. and an important and influential citizen of that town. This powder horn is among the few existing objects that can be directly associated with the first Battle for American Independence and to our knowledge this powder horn is the only Colonial horn used at this historic confrontation to ever be offered for sale. In fact, to our knowledge nothing used by a minuteman at the Concord engagement has been sold at auction in many years. This is indeed a truly extraordinarily rare and historic artifact and presents a once in a lifetime opportunity. This horn was on display at the Concord Museum in an exhibition of items from this most important of American events. The exhibit spanned from April to September 2014. PROVENANCE: Oliver Buttrick, 1774, James P. Hughes, Windham, NH before 1883, Robert Thayer, 1994. Exhibited at the Concord Historical Society Museum, 2014 at the “Shot Heard Round the World” Exhibition. CONDITION: Very good with original surface, minor cracking and chipping near lip. Wood bezel has two chips which are well patinated as can be seen in photos and glass cover lens has a vertical crack. Original bailing wire loops are still present with smooth iron patina. 49789-5 (20,000-50,000) – Lot 2026

EXTRAORDINARY WASHINGTON FAMILY SILK EMBROIDERY.

Second half 18th century, probably Fredericksburg, Virginia. This silk work wrought by Mildred Gregory Washington (1777-1805), daughter of Charles Washington and niece of General George Washington. Mildred Gregory Washington, second wife of Captain Thomas Hammond of Charles Town, Jefferson County, Virginia was married until her death in 1804/05. Capt. Thomas Hammond then married Nancy Newton Collins in 1807, retaining the silk work within their family. Their son, George Washington Hammond married Sarah Ann Taylor, retaining the silk work in their family. Their daughters were Florinda Jones Hammond (1846-1922) and Mary Mildred Hammond (1836-1933). Mary Mildred Sillivan (nee Hammond) took stewardship of the silk work. Subsequently she gifted the silk work to her niece, Elizabeth Tilford Keferstein (1874-1941), daughter of Florinda Hammond Tilford and John Boyle Tilford, Jr. A family quilt exists, fashioned over a period of 6 years by the three wives of Captain Thomas Hammond including Mildory Gregory Washington and Nancy Newton Collins. The silk and chenille embroidered picture depicting a young woman in a fitted pale blue jacket with dark trim, with a brimmed cap, wearing a blue and gold striped full length skirt and black shoes, holding a hay rake in her right hand. She is facing a young man in blue jacket with white trousers and leggings, black shoes with buckles and seated on a haystack beside a seated dog, holding a pitchfork, all on a grassy foreground. They are positioned beneath a large central willow tree, a bird flying within. The middle ground with spotted pig, fence, and small farmhouse. Rendered overall in muted and subdued tones of golds, silvers, greens and blues. This rare folk art rendition with similarities to the rural themes seen in the “Fishing Lady” embroideries of Boston and also with regional characteristics of rural Virginia, Frederick County in the 18th century. References: The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Collection of family documents from the Stewart Bell Jr. Archives Room, Handley Regional Library, Winchester-Frederick County Historical Society, Winchester, Virginia. For additional background information of the the family see “Uplifting of the South” by Kathleen Curtis Wilson and “Mary Mildred Sullivan (Mrs. Algernon Sydney Sullivan) A Biography” by Anne Middleton Holmes. Accompanied by a typed history titled, “EARLY AMERICAN SILK EMBROIDERY – A Family Relic”, documented and written by George Hammond Sullivan, son of Algernon Sydney Sullivan and Mary Mildred Hammond Sullivan, New York, September 1, 1923. It is our opinion that this is a rare and superior example of 18th Century Folk Art needlework worthy of any serious collector’s attention with extraordinary potential for appreciation. SIZE: Sight 15″ x 12-1/4″. CONDITION: The silk work in very good structural condition. The foundation now a medium brown from age with some deeper discoloration in area around the young woman’s torso. There is also some fraying to the foundation along the borders of the work, outside the borders of the stitching. The colors are somewhat faded, but present a pleasing overall tonality. 49889-1 (18,000-22,000) – Lot 2027

JOHN HANCOCK SIGNED DOCUMENT PAYING A “NEGRO” ANTHONY VASSELL’S REVOLUTIONARY WAR PENSION.

This is a most unusual document signed by then Massachusetts Governor John Hancock. Anthony Vassell was a slave owned by one of the wealthiest men in Cambridge, Massachusetts, John Vassell. As the war began, John Vassell and his family left for England, leaving Anthony his most trusted slave to manage his property. Vassell was never to return to America. The State of Massachusetts seized his properties and by an act of the State, February 6, 1781, Anthony was to be paid a pension of 12 pounds per year. Anthony and his family, now free, were among the original free black community of Boston and there is much written on his family including his life at the Vassell Estate as George Washington entered Cambridge in 1775. This is a unique document as we know of no others paying a pension to a newly freed slave. There is a link attached on the web to George Washington’s Headquarters National Park document which has extensive information on slavery in Boston and an entire chapter just on Anthony Vassell and his family starting in 1770’s. CONDITION: Document is framed and was not taken out to check for mounting; it does not appear dry mounted. Good discernible ink including a bold Hancock signature. 49755-1 (3,000-5,000) – Lot 2031

BRITISH FIGURE-EIGHT NAVAL CUTLASS, CIRCA 1810.

This is a classic example of a British Naval cutlass that was emulated by the Americans during the American Revolution and War of 1812. This type of weapon would be found aboard British or American privateers during the Napoleonic Wars, War of 1812 and the Barbary Coast Wars. American made versions typically have a wooden grip, so this example with iron grip, most probably is of British manufacture, though there is no maker’s mark or cypher meaning it was sold to private market. An old brown ink tag attached reads “CAPTAIN WM. H. GOODING”. CONDITION: Sword is very good overall, “as found” in local Maine estate. 27-1/2″ X 1-3/8″ blade is overall grey with areas of staining and pitting.

This lot consists of 3 Naval Jacks, 2 dating from the Civil War with 35 stars, another with 38-stars with history. 1) 35 star is in poor condition, originally with hand sewn, double-applique, 7-1/2″ cotton stars. There are now some machine repairs on at least two stars and a newer rope hoist for continued use. 2) 35 cut-through 9″ stars adorn this Jack with a mix of hand sewn stars, with some having machine sewn outer perimeter, but not all. The large canvas hoist is hand sewn, as are the edges with two large brass grommets. Two large brass grommets are affixed to either end of the 5″ folded over hoist. Written on the hoist several times “D.G. Fort”. 3) 38-star was official flag with the admittance of Colorado in 1876 until 1885. 38-star Jack of the Tugboat “E. E. Frost”. The Frost has an interesting history being sunk about 10 years after this ensign became official. On October 1, 1899, the steamer NEW ORLEANS, coming into the harbor, had a collision with the tug E.E. FROST, outward bound. Capt. Louis P. Cole, was in the pilot house of the FROST, and was steering the boat. As the NEW ORLEANS struck the smaller craft her bow cut into the tugboat and the latter went to the bottom. Capt. Cole found himself in a perilous position as the boat sank beneath the surface. The door of the pilothouse had become jammed in the collision and Cole was imprisoned. Finally the pressure of the water on the outside became so great that Cole was enabled to get the door opened and float to the surface. As an outcome of the collision, Cole has filed a libel in admiralty against the steamer NEW ORLEANS for $10,000 and costs. The steamer was seized by a United States marshal several days ago, but has since been released upon the filing of a surety company bond for $10,000 by the owners of the vessel. 4) 48-star US flag, all machine sewn with with 48 double-applique 2″ stars.

This beautiful flag from a local Maine estate exhibits 31 stars in a “Grand Illuminary” pattern. 5-1/2″ stars are hand sewn and cut through by a knowledgeable and efficient seamstress.

20 STAR AMERICAN FLAG COMMEMORATING MISSISSIPPI.

Flag measures 40″ on hoist, 72″ on fly. 20 3-1/2″ hand sewn, double applique cotton stars are attached to single ply blue wool bunting canton in four rows of five. Red and white stripes are also single ply bunting, which are machine sewn. A 3″ folded over linen hoist contains a rope for attachment. Hoist is hand sewn to flag. 20 star American flags commemorate the addition of Mississippi as the 20th state in 1818. 20 star flags were only official for two years with the addition of Illinois as a state in 1819. This flag, however, does not date this early, but is later 19th Century as construction and materials are much more typical of the Civil War era and other odd configurations of stars are known on boat flags as this flag most likely was used, considering it’s rope hoist. Regardless, this is a fine 19th Century 20 star flag that is a great size for display and is a rare configuration. CONDITION: Very good overall. Blue color is bright. Red is somewhat faded. There are scattered areas of staining and small holes and contemporary repairs for continued use There is fraying on the fly end. There are several small holes, the largest being about an inch but they do not affect aesthetics. The canton was originally made from two hand sewn panels which most of the stitching has come loose. There is a more modern attempt to repair, though still separated for about 1/4 of its length. However, this could easily be re-sewn. 49938-1 (2,000-4,000) – Lot 2038

CONFEDERATE CIVIL WAR 12 STAR 11 STRIPE FLAG.

This very unusual flag has quite a “folk art” feel, probably made 1861 as exclusionary flag citing only the twelve supposed Confederate states at time of manufacture. Flag is totally hand sewn made from red, white and blue cotton. The heavy canvas hoist has four irregular hand-whipped eyelets. The twelve double-applique hand sewn stars range in size from about 5-1/4″ to 6″ each. In what apparently started out as an eleven star canton with a circle of six stars, a central star and four in opposite quadrants, the twelfth star appears added during construction as an afterthought to show sentiment of a border state such as Missouri hoping to join the eleven Confederate states. Note, there are eleven stripes. The flag shows little use, though there is some fraying and reductions at top and bottom edges of fly, and there are eight or nine rust stains from probable nails that attached this flag to pole. This flag is very typical of early war Confederate flags, measuring 46″ on hoist by 90″ on fly. Large ratios of 2-1, fly to hoist, are often seen in early 1861 on Confederate Regimental flags used in the field. CONDITION: Good to very good overall. Good colors, stitching mostly intact with few reductions and only a few tears, one several inches long in bottom red stripe, about 3″ or 4″ in an “L” shape which is easily repaired. Reductions at corners of fly, the largest on bottom is about 3″ x 4″. White stripes show areas of water staining and soiling which do not affect overall aesthetics. This flag recently discovered in a Maine estate could easily have been a souvenir brought home by a Maine Civil War soldier 49804-1 (4,000-6,000) – Lot 2039

The small rings with patriotic shields made of bone and wood, are typical to those found in Civil War soldier affects, however the large lidded box which measures about 5″ tall and 3-1/2″ square is most unusual and elaborately carved with patriotic motifs. “FALMOUTH” as found on one ring, relief carved handles, birds including two different views of homing pigeons with a letter tied around their necks. I know of no Civil War accounts of birds carrying mail, but something was meant by these vignettes.

AMERICAN SCHOOL (Early 19th Century) PORTRAIT OF THE SHIP “AMITY” OF NEW YORK.

An important recently discovered marine painting with ties to the early port of New York. This unsigned oil on paperboard mounted on canvas depicts the three masted packet ship “Amity” in full sail in open waters with the American flag off it’s stern and several ships dotting the horizon. Housed in a period carved giltwood frame with round black ball ornamentation in the four corners. Titled and inscribed along the top “the Ship Amity***/of New York **”. The lack of the Black Ball Line flag in this painting possibly dates the work to the earliest period of the ships service 1816-1820. The “Amity” was built in 1816 by F. Cheeseman as a private trader until it was acquired by the Black Ball Line in 1818. She weighed in at 382 tons and measured over 106 feet. The Black Ball Line was a passenger line founded by the New York Quaker merchants headed by Jeremiah Thompson, and included Isaac White and his son William, Francis Thompson and Benjamin Marshall. All were Quakers except Marshall. The line consisted of four packet ships, the Amity, Courier, Pacific and the James Monroe. All of these were running between Liverpool, England and New York City. In operation for over 60 years, it took its name from its flag a black ball on red background. The Black Ball Line was important to early immigration through the port of New York. The Amity, which is French for friendship, was one of The Black Ball Line’s first ships. Rain or shine, blow high, blow low, one of the Black Ball liners sailed from New York for Liverpool on the first and sixteenth of each month, and for many years these were the European mail days throughout the United States. On April 24, 1824 the ship “Amity” was stranded in Manasquan, New Jersey as it ran aground in a fog. The passengers and crew were rescued, and much of the Amity’s cargo was salvaged, except for that in the lower holds which was abandoned. REFERENCE: For a similar example see Skinner August Americana 2015 Auction, lot 182. SIZE: 22-1/2″ x 34-1/2″. Overall: 32″ x 44″ CONDITION: Good, conservation by Peter Williams Museum Services, Boston, MA, with craquelure. 49932-8 (20,000-30,000) – Lot 2061

PAINT-DECORATED PINE PORTRAIT BOX ATTRIBUTED TO ROYALL BREWSTER SMITH.

New England, possibly Maine, circa 1830. Grain painted on all surfaces with a bust portrait painted on top of a gentleman wearing a black coat, striped vest, black stock and white collar. Born in Buxton, Maine, 7 August 1801, Dr. Royall Brewster was the eleventh of fourteen children of John McCurdy and Elizabeth McLellan Smith. Royall successfully survived a childhood of limited financial means and some illness to become a successful artisan. Between 1830 and 1837, Royall Brewster Smith executed approximately three dozen portraits of residents throughout southern Maine. As an itinerant artist, he painted subjects from such towns as Limington, Gorham, and Saco. Many of these sitters were from related families, some of them connected to Smith’s own. There is no indication that Smith ever received formal training. Generally his works are three-quarter, half-length views on simple but brightly colored backgrounds. In 1840 he married Roxana Gowen in the town of Gorham. By 1843 the couple had moved to Bangor, where Smith worked as a carpenter and painter until his death in December 1855.

RARE AND DESIRABLE 1925 HARLEY DAVIDSON MODEL “FE”.

Serial Number 25 FE 3565 stamped on left side of engine case. The motorcycle in green paint with red striped fitted with large leather saddle seat and with kickstand. The Model 1925 Harley was a benchmark in the manufacture of this famous motorcycle. This model incorporated “27 big improvements” among which were handlebar design, saddle placement and a streamlined fuel tank. The “Big Twin Engine” was introduced in 1921 as the “D” Model with 74 cubic inch displacement. The “E” Model was introduced in 1925 and had a displacement of 61 cubic inches. The engine had an overhead intake valve and was known as the “Pocket Valve Motor.” The model code of the serial number on this motorcycle, “FE” stands for a 61 cubic inch motor with magneto ignition. There is no other electrical system on the motorcycle; therefore the headlight is powered by acetylene gas. The “F” in the serial number signifies the magneto ignition. This is the first in a long line of Harley Davidson “Big Twin” Models and is the forerunner of the motorcycles that we ride today. Only 1,750 “FE” Models were produced. Appears to be mostly intact. NOTE: Prospective buyers should view this motorcycle personally or have a representative inspect on your behalf as we are not motorcycle experts. SIZE: 42″ h x 94″ l x 30″ w at handlebars. PROVENANCE: Personal collection of Felix J Urioste. CONDITION: Restored, unknown working order, there is a small area of paint loss to proper right side of gas tank and additionally, a shallow dent with paint loss to top of headlight casing. 50105-8 (5,000-8,000) – Lot 2347

RARE 2013 JENNY RIGHT-SIDE-UP 6-STAMP BLOCK OF THE JENNY INVERTED STAMP.

Referred to as the un-inverted Jenny stamp. One of the rarest and most famous United States stamps issued by the U. S. Postal Service was the 1918 issue of the 24 cent stamp showing the Curtiss JN-4H biplane or Jenny on it. This stamp was rushed into production to celebrate the first airmail flight. In May of that year a single page of 100 stamps is sold to William T. Robey a cashier from Washington, D.C. He had just purchased the only misprints of this stamp to fall into private hands. The misprint shows the “Jenny” upside down! A block of four inverted Jennys from this original block of 100 was sold at a Robert A. Siegel auction in October 2005 for $2.7 million. (This would make the original block of 100 worth $67,500,000!) Fast forward to 2013. The Postal Service reissues the “misprinted” inverted Jenny stamp to commemorate the rarest of all misprints. But in a twist of marketing the Postal Service secretly produces 100 sheets of 6 stamp blocks of the new Jenny stamp right side up, creating a rarity “misprint ” of the original misprint. They are among the 2.2 million sheets of six $2 stamps issued. All sheets are individually wrapped in sealed envelopes to recreate the excitement of finding an inverted Jenny when opening the envelope and to avoid the possibility of discovering a corrected Jenny prior to purchase. Individuals purchasing one of the 100 noninverted Jenny sheets find a congratulatory note inside the wrapping asking them to call a phone number to receive a certificate of acknowledgment signed by Postmaster General Patrick. This was very much in the tradition of Charlie from the movie Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory finding the “Golden Ticket” in the chocolate bar. Of the 2.2 million 6 stamp sheets produced approximately only one half have been sold and only 24 “non-inverted” stamp blocks have been found. The Postal Agency has admitted to a huge mistake that broke the agency’s own rules, which prohibit postal officials from intentionally creating a rare stamp just to make money. The other twist is that the Postal Service kept back 23 sheets to distribute later but now under the controversy may not distribute them, so that instead of the rarity of 100 sheets there actually may only be 77 sheets allowed into the public. James D Julia, Inc. has been selected to sell the most recent 24th sheet found of this rare issue. This sheet was purchased in Waterville, Maine in Mid – September. Accompanied by a signed certificate of acknowledgment of the limited edition “Right side up” souvenir sheet dated September 22nd, 2013 and numbered “24/100”. Also, including the original sealed package holding the sheet of 6 stamps along with the congratulations card telling the customer they are the recipient of 1 of the 100 stamp sheets. Also a standard block of 6 inverted Jenny stamps for comparison. CONDITION: Very good, as issued. 49844-1 (40,000-60,000) – Lot 2348

LUDWIG MIES VAN DER ROHE BARCELONA LEATHER CHAIR MODEL 250.

Circa 1929, Germany. While 1929 was the introduction of the “Barcelona” chair by Ludwig Mies Van Der Rohe (1886 – 1969) we feel that this chair may be of American manufacture, post WWII due to the variant of the construction technique. Most notably that the chair frame was manufactured from a single piece of steel without the use of connectors or joints. The end result was a sleek frame of exceptional quality and durability. Chrome plated steel frame is fitted with black leather seat and back supported by fixed vertical leather straps or struts. SIZE: 28-3/4″ h x 29-1/4″ w x 30″ d. CONDITION: Chair is very fine original condition with no wear, soiling or distress to leather covering. Suspension straps retain original firmness and attachment. Proper right rear leg exhibits small area of corrosion to chrome plating at outside bottom edge of leg. 49818-75 (4,000-6,000) – Lot 2351

Please Note: Great News! Upon examination under different light, we noticed a subtle “B” and the friendship between Wasson and Bellamy has been cited in a number of historical documents. Also we have been contacted by the consignor who believes that the stand may have been produced by John H. Bellamy, the famous carver of eagle plaques. It is her opinion that some of the design details might reflect or represent Masonic elements. we have agreed to share this opinion with you the buyer.
