Please Note: There is some dispute among the family members as to whether this is by Harold Stoner, and thus, as it is just signed “Stoner” we cannot guarantee this work was by Harold Stoner.

HAROLD G. STONER (American, 1890-1971) ARCHITECT HAROLD STONER, ARCHITECT, LOOKING OUT OVER HIS BRIDGE CONCEPT FOR SAN FRANCISCO BAY.

Oil on canvas Unframed Signed and dated lower right “Stoner 1926” Note: Harold G. Stoner (1890-1971) was an American architect and artist who lived in San Francisco and worked in the early and mid-20th century and helped define some of the architectural style of the San Francisco area. After working for several architectural firms he settled into the firm of Lang Realty Company as their chief architect in 1921. He worked on many of the housing developments in many of the San Francisco neighborhoods including the Marina, Monterey Heights, Sherwood Forest and many others. Although most of Stoner’s work was involved in residential housing he did work on some commercial projects which became his most acclaimed work. These included the Tamalpais Theatre in San Anselmo, Sally Rand’s Nude Ranch at the Golden Gate International Exposition and Sutro’s Ice Rink. This painting shows an image of Stoner kneeling down and at his feet are architectural blueprints. He is overlooking a large bridge being completed over the San Francisco bay with the city’s skyline beyond. It was during this time when the city was soliciting plans and design concepts for the bridge that was to span the bay. In his vision is a bridge with an Art Deco design. Whether he fancied his participation in this project or was asked to participate it was the prize of any architect at that time in the “City by the Bay”. SIZE: 15″ x 42″. CONDITION: Surface grime, stretcher mark, otherwise very good 52097-2 (5,000-10,000) – Lot 1280

EXTREMELY RARE REVOLUTIONARY WAR “UNITED STATES” BRANDED CHARLEVILLE MUSKET.

This is probably the only authentic and original Revolutionary War “United States” branded Model 1763 Charleville musket to ever come to public auction. On March 31, 1777, George Washington directed the Board of War that all Continental arms be stamped with “United States”. According to George D. Moller in his text American Military Shoulder Arms, Vol. I., 1993, this is the earliest identification mark on Continental muskets. This marking has been highly reproduced and faked over the years, but this example is guaranteed original and unaltered with excellent patina and completeness. Over the years, just a handful of armaments with this marking are known. “The vast majority of arms imported into the United States for the use of the American revolutionary forces were French. Well over 100,000 French muskets are known to have been imported…” SIZE: 59-1/2″ overall. CONDITION: Good overall, standard configuration with 44″ 69 caliber barrel. Metal dark and brown overall, with pitting. Several crack repairs to stock, including 9″ crack which extends from trigger guard to buttplate, through the brand, but markings still very good and discernible. Top jaw screw is an old replacement. Band springs lack locking buttons. 52040-1 (7,000-9,000) – Lot 2002

Please Note: We have been informed that the bronze figure is probably Admiral Heihachiro Togo (1848-1934), Japan’s greatest naval officer and victor of battle of Tsushima, annihilating the Russian fleet in 1915. He is still a hero and bronzes are often presented to or by naval personnel. US Admiral Chester Nimitz helped with preservation of the battleship Mikasa (Togo’s flagship) at Yokosuka, Japan and there is a Togo memorial garden at the Nimitz museum in Fredericksburg, Texas.

Fine bronze figure of Japanese Naval officer holding binoculars in right and sword with handguard in scabbard in left hand. From the estate collection of a WWII U.S. Navy veteran. Bronze figures such as these were often given as retirement gifts to Japanese officers. This one may have been given to a schoolmaster at one of the U.S. Japanese training academies.

Overall a very fine and attractive and interesting souvenir of WWII. 52202-1 (500-1,000) – Lot 3623
