Additional notes discovered after the printing of the catalog: Consigned by the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association – Research from the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine, indicates that the H.H. Boody was built in 1846 in Brunswick, Maine by Master Carpenter Samuel Dunning; 665 tons, 143’9” reg. length. There were several part owners of the H.H. Boody including Joseph Badger and Clement Skofield. Skofield was the ship’s First Captian, followed by his brother Thomas. The H.H. Boody was built for trans-Atlantic trade and carried both passengers and cargo. The H.H. Boody had the same owners until 1861 when it went aground in Ireland. It was later condemned and sold. The ship was named after H. H. Boody who was a professor at Bowdoin College, Bowdoin, Maine. Of additional interest is the fact that the Maine Charitable Mechanic Associations member list indicates a Henry H. Boody as being a member as of July 11, 1816 whose trade was a cordwainer and it was Henry H. Boody who actually donated this painting to the Maine Charitable Mechanic Association. Perhaps this member of the Association was a father, brother, etc. of Professor H.H. Boody.

ATTRIBUTED TO DUNCAN MCFARLANE (British, 1818-1865) PORTRAIT OF THE SHIP “H.H. BOODY”. Outstanding unsigned oil on canvas shows a broadside view of the three mast black and white hulled ship. Sailing left to right. Sails are up with one bottom sail billowing. The captain is seen atop the deck house in black top coat and stove pipe hat. Other crew members are seen tending the billowing sail and two are on the bow. Ship flies an American flag off the stern and the red ship flag with name off middle mast. The name of the ship is emblazoned on the side and bow. A green hulled one sail launch has pulled up at mid-ships and is tethered to the side. At the stern is a bow end view of the Boody with sails up and off the bow a stern view of the Boody with partial sails up having a small steam ship beside with five row boats. The foreground with a white capped green ocean with seagulls in driftwood. The background scene is Liverpool Harbor with many ship masts, flying flags and buildings beyond. Many people walk the harbor wall. All under blue and white cloud sky. NOTE: Though this paintings is not signed, a strong attribution can be made from a painting held in the Peabody Museum of Salem, Massachusetts. The painting is of the “Chariot of Fame” and illustrated on page 205 of Marine Paintings in the Peabody Museum by M.V. and Dorothy Brewington. The tri-view image has the same composition including the seagull and floating debris, the background view of Liverpool; the single sail launch at midships and the same sail billowing. The H.H. Boody was partially owned by Clement Skolfield a resident of Brunswick, ME and who is later buried is Harpswell, ME. Though we cannot be certain but we believe this is a Maine ship, probably built in the Portland/Brunswick area. “G. Rowney & Co. London” canvas stamp to back. Housed in its original gilt molded wood deep frame. SIZE: 24″ x 36″. PROVENANCE: Maine Charitable Mechanic Association (Portland, ME). CONDITION: Original canvas having craquelure, discolored varnish layer and surface dirt. One small puncture at center bottom. Otherwise very good. 9-20459 (15,000-25,000)

EXTREMELY RARE CLASSICAL MAHOGANY ACCORDION-ACTION EXTENSION DINING TABLE. Circa 1800-1820, New York, or Philadelphia. The rectangular plum pudding figured top with hinged demilune leaves above the conforming frieze, the apron with pendant acorn finials at the corners, raised on four lyre-base standards, the end standards each with three outswept legs brass-bound at the knees, the two center standards each with two outswept legs, all with acanthus-carved knees and molded legs, terminating in clawfoot casters. This example is offered with two additional and original 17-inch leaves. There is a third custom-made leaf (11 inches wide) that accompanies this table. Legs are attached to the oak accordion extension mechanism, first invented by Robert Gillow in 1800 in London, England. It is noted that the outer standards of three legs are known to have been mounted in either direction, i.e., the single leg at right angles to the others may extend either from the end of the table or, if desired, may be turned and mounted in such a way that it faces inward beneath the arch of the interior standards. One example sold at Christie’s in New York, January 16, 2003. Sotheby’s of New York offered the Martin Van Buren dining table on January 18, 2003. An additional example sold by Sotheby’s of New York October 7, 2006. Most of the known examples are similar but with slight variations on the baluster turnings and carving of the sabre legs. LITERATURE: 1) “Between 1760 and 1770 they [the Gillows] invented the original form of the billiard-table; they were the patentees (about 1800) of the telescopic dining-table which has long been universal in English houses” Excerpt from http://www.1911encyclopedia.org/Robert_Gillow)Based on the 11th Edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica – pub. 1911.) 2) Most tables of this form are now believed to be the work of New York cabinetmakers, though Nutting ascribed the example he published in the Furniture Treasury (fig. 1000) to Philadelphia, as one was sold by Israel Sack, Inc. (Encyclopedia of Furniture, p. 424). Avant-garde furniture such as the extension table usually dates early in the period, thus it seems likely that the table could date to circa 1805. 3) Closely related tables include one in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (see Marshall Davidson and Elizabeth Stillinger’s The American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, 1985) pl. 227 and back cover; another illustrated in the work of Berry B. Tracy et. al., 19th Century America: Furniture and Other Decorative Arts (New York, 1970) cat. no. 19; and yet another one illustrated as “Best” in Albert Sack’s Fine Points of Furniture, p. 245. 4) American Antique Furniture, by Edgar G. Miller, Jr., Vol. 2, p. 717, fig. 1327: “Table No. 1327 is of an unusual type and would be better understood if it had been photographed in the same position as the similar table No. 770 in volume 2 of Mr. Lockwood’s Colonial Furniture. At each of the two ends is a group of three legs, two of which extend sideways as in No. 1326; the third leg is attached to the other two at a right angle. The groups may be turned inward as in the illustration, or outward if desired. Above the legs are inverted lyre-shaped supports to which the top is attached.” 5) Colonial Furniture in America, by Luke Vincent Lockwood, fig. 770, p. 228: “Figure 770 shows another dining-table of the same period, closed, which was the property of the late Mrs. Frank H. Bosworth, of New York. There are four lyre-shaped standards. The outer ones have three cyma curved legs and the inner ones have but two legs, and all terminate in brass claw feet. The inner standards are attached to the frame, and when the table is opened they separate, supporting the leaves at proper intervals. The extension top in this form was invented by Robert Gillow, of London, in 1800 and is the same as that found on the modern tables.” SIZE: 29-1/4″ h. x 55-1/2″ d. x 24-1/2″ w. closed. 50″ w. closed (drop-leaves extended). 95″ overall l. (open w/all leaves utilized). PROVENANCE: By descent through the family of the current owners. The family roots are based in the Carolinas and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, currently residing in central Maine. CONDITION: Figured mahogany top with patch in center where table divides. Each hinged leaf with some losses at location of each hinge. One outer leg section has been remounted to underside of top, also small stress crack at juncture of one leg (completely restorable). Table retains early surfaces, top nicely polished, all with very good patina. 9-99677 (20,000-30,000)

ANNIE BEILER (American, 20th Century) THREE AMISH PAINTING REMEMBRANCES. These three watercolor/gouache paintings created by Annie Beiler, age 12, in the late 1930’s. She was one of 12 siblings who lived in an Amish Community and she was removed and brought to live in Topeka, Indiana. These three works were her remembrances of her young Amish life. All identically housed in black modern frames with green backing board. 1) “Going to School” shows a white schoolhouse atop a knoll with open door showing silhouetted teacher and desk with red apple. Outside is parked an Amish wagon with horse. A coal pile with coal hod and well are seen in grassy yard and three groups of children and parents walk up the road towards the school. It has started to rain with one parent holding an umbrella and one of the boys splashing in a puddle. A yellow lightning bolt splits the blue sky near three large trees, one harboring a red bird. 2) “House Cleaning” shows part of a pink roofed, gray house with various chores being done. The chimney is being cleaned, a rug is being beaten out the window, a woman cleans the windows and a young boy paints the porch. The gutter has sagged and from the low point water drips beside the door. Dirt surrounds the doorway and needs to be cleaned. A large apple tree with apples is on left side holding the clothesline which holds the Amish quilt for drying. 3) Untitled barn raising scene having 11 figures on various beams of the structure under a blue and white cloud sky. These are wonderful folk art encapsulations of childhood memories in the Amish Community. The information concerning the history is provided to us from the consignor. SIZE: 30″ x 40-1/2″.

SAMUEL ADDISON SHUTE (American, 1803-1836) AND RUTH WHITTIER SHUTE (American, 1803-1882) PORTRAIT OF YOUNG GIRL WITH DOG. First third 19th century, New England. Extremely rare watercolor, gouache and pencil full portrait of a young girl with blond hair and blue eyes holding a whip in her left hand with her pet dog jumping up for attention. The girl is dressed in a fashionable pink dress, embellished with large white X-stitched buttons, with puffed sleeves and ivory pantaloons, and with brown laced shoes. She is standing beneath a large shade tree which is located to her left. Samuel and Ruth Shute, married in 1827, were prolific and collaborative portrait painters. They settled in Weare, New Hampshire, but traveled widely to paint portraits. They would advertise in local papers that they were available for portrait painting and stay as long as the commissions lasted. The earliest signed portraits by both of them were for the Atkinson Family of Lowell, Massachusetts and are dated 1831. “The Shutes’ work can be divided into two periods. Little is known about the first period (1827-1831), except that the two artists generally worked separately… They eventually developed an unusual style, both working on the same piece of art… This collaboration marked the second period and dates from sometime in 1831 until mid 1833.” “It is thought that he [Samuel] was ill for several years prior to his death, as paintings dated after 1834 appear to have been done only by Ruth.” Excerpted from Folk Art: Nineteenth Century Lowell, An Exhibit by Martha Mayo at the University of Lowell Center for Lowell History. Important similarities between various works of Samuel & Ruth Shute include 1) the striations in the background of various portraits, notably those of Cynthia Bicknell Atkinson, James V. Atkinson and Frederick Buxton; 2) the incorporation of a pet dog, notably those of Two Children from the Prescott Family and Frederick Buxton; 3) eyes having large irises and prominent pupils, notably those of the Atkinson Family, Frederick Buxton, the Prescott Children and Atlantis Orr; 4) use of crosshatched buttons, notably those of Frederick Buxton and Portrait of Young Boy with Dark Hair. Housed in a contemporary frame and has been archivally mounted on acid-free board with a UV plexiglass front and spacers in between. Lot accompanied by photograph of reverse prior to framing. SIZE: Sight 21-1/2″ x 16-1/2″. CONDITION: Restoration to proper left forearm. Small tears on the margins that have patches in the rear. Small discolored spots across the subject’s forehead, beneath her proper left eye and at the center of her right cheek. Some slight abrasion on proper right front of dress. 9-99234 (125,000-175,000)

GOTHIC STYLE HEAVILY CARVED SPANISH WALNUT COFFER. 18th and 19th century. Comprised of elements spanning a 200 year period. The coffer with hinged lid carved with the Grand Magisterial Arms of the Maltese Langue of Castille-Leon quartered by Aragon and Sicily, flanked by Gothic letters beneath crowns beneath Gothic arches. The lid corners carved with a rampant lion and turreted castles. Bottom border with quatrefoil rosettes. The central panel (of 17th or 18th century origins) carved overall with rosettes over Gothic arches headed by pairs of winged griffins. The flanking pilasters each with three panels carved with mythological winged creatures. Literature: the carved coat of arms in center of lid is pictured on the frontice of The Spain of Ferdinand and Isabella translated and edited by Benjamin Keen, Rutgers University Press. SIZE: 25-1/2″ h x 55-1/2″ l x 21″ d. CONDITION: The coffer with dark opaque patina.

This is evidenced by distinctive characteristics within the carved elements and by the hand hewn nature of the backboard and central panel. Very good overall. 9-20375 (3,000-5,000)
