‘Traite complet de l'anatomie de l'homme, comprenant la medicine operatoire’ by Jean Baptiste Marc Bourgery, Paris, 1840. PBA Galleries image SAN FRANCISCO – A unique relic of the Age of Piracy and early medical works from the collection of George Bray highlight PBA Galleries’ Feb. 8 sale. A rare early Sunday morning auction for PBA, it will take place at the venue of the 48th California International Antiquarian Book Fair in Oakland, California. A part of the sale will benefit the Elisabeth Woodburn Educational Fund.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

The 17th century stoneware pitcher with “ostrich egg finish” was given by the notorious pirate William Kidd to John Gardiner of Gardiner’s Island, near Long Island, New York. Capt. Kidd had stopped at the small island on his way to Boston and befriended Gardiner. Here, he left several bales and boxes of treasure to be retrieved after he cleared his name. He also gave Gardiner and his wife several gifts, among them this unassuming pitcher filled with dried fruits for the Gardiner children. The pitcher has remained in the Gardiner family to this day and was displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in the early 20th century. The estimate is $80,000-$120,000.

An elite selection of 42 rare and early medical works from a cross-section of important landmarks of medicine will also be offered from the collection of Dr. George Bray. Among the more significant works are:

  • Edward Jenner’s An Inquiry into the Causes and Effects of the Variolæ Vaccinæ, from 1798, describing the use of cowpox to develop a vaccine for smallpox. This has been called “one of the greatest triumphs in the history of medicine” and has ultimately led to the eradication of smallpox. The estimate for this groundbreaking work is $30,000-$50,000.
  • De Honesta Voluptate, by Bartholomaeus Platina, 1480, the third edition, five years after the first, is the first published work on food and drink, being a guide to a healthy diet as well as a recipe book. This rare incunable is estimated at $20,000-$30,000.
  • William Gilbert’s De Magnete, 1600, the first major English scientific treatise based on experimental methods of research, concludes that the earth was a giant magnet. It is expected it to sell for $30,000-$50,000.
  • A Treatise of the Scurvy by James Lind, first edition, 1753, a rare presentation copy of the seminal work, advises supplementing sailor’s diets with oranges, lemons and green vegetables. It should bring in the range of $25,000-$35,000.

The last part of the sale consists of books donated by Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America members and sold for the benefit of the Elisabeth Woodburn Fund. The fund was established in 1990 through a bequest from the former ABAA president to provide financial support for scholarly research and education relevant to the antiquarian book trade.

The entire sale will be on display at the Oakland City Center Marriott on Friday, Feb. 6, noon-5 p.m. and Saturday, Feb.7, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. The sale will begin at 8 a.m. Pacific Time in Room 201.

Vendo Coca-Cola 10-cent vending machine produced in the mid-to-late 1950s, Model H81-D. Ahlers & Ogletree image

ATLANTA – A Winter Estates Auction packed with more than 500 premier lots in a wide array of categories – some of them with connections to iconic luminaries ranging from JFK and Elvis Presley to Abraham Lincoln and Marilyn Monroe – will be held on Sunday, Feb. 8, by Ahlers & Ogletree, in the firm’s gallery at 715 Miami Circle, starting at 11 a.m. EST.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding.

The auction will feature duck decoys, animal taxidermy trophy mounts, militaria (including World War II items), collectible coins, a fabulous group of vintage guitars, original artwork, baby boomer items that include a 1950s Coke machine and a ’50s-era Seeburg jukebox, and items from the prominent African-American figures Booker T. Washington and J.R. Clifford.

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was an educator, author and orator from 1890-1915 and the dominant leader in the African-American community. Items from his private estate will include correspondence, personal items (including his monogrammed napkin ring), handwritten Tuskegee Institute documents, and large circa 1870s/1880s ambrotypes, one by John Karl Hillers (German/American, 1843-1925), titled A General View of Zuni, and one by James Fennemore (American, 19th century), titled Grand Canyon of the Colorado River, Looking West.

A related lot, but more recent, is a complete collection of both the Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver U.S. commemorative half-dollars – 28 coins in all, from the Denver, Philadelphia and San Francisco mints, struck between 1946 and 1951. Also, items consigned by the granddaughter of J.R. Clifford (1848-1933), a civil rights pioneer, will be sold.

A wooden section of the platform from John F. Kennedy’s last official speech, delivered at Brooks Air Force Base in Texas on Nov. 21, 1963, the day before his assassination, will come up for bid. The platform was divided up into four sections; one was given to Mrs. Kennedy. Also, a baseball signed in green pen by the Georgia Peach (“Ty Cobb, 12/16/59”; not authenticated) will be sold.

Fans of vintage guitars and popular music will have a field day with what’s in the auction: Justin Bieber’s personal 2010 Gibson Les Paul Studio left-handed solid body electric guitar; a 1968 Gibson B. Kessel cherry Sunburst hollow body electric guitar signed by Ringo Starr; and a 1965 Gretsch Chet Atkins hollow body electric guitar, Nashville Orange finish, with the original case.

Additional guitars will include a 1969 (or 1970) Fender Telecaster solid body electric guitar with applied circular Grateful Dead logo; a 1964 Gibson ES335 Bigsby hollow cherry body electric guitar; a 1987 Martin D-41 acoustic guitar with abalone inlay, rosewood back and sides; and a 1967 Gibson ES345 Sunburst archtop stereo electric guitar. All are accompanied by their cases.

Two photographs are bound to attract attention. One is a photo print of a nude Marilyn Monroe, reclining on a red velvet expanse (from Playboy magazine’s inaugural issue in 1953). The photo is signed by the photographer, Tom Kelly (American, 1914-1984). The other is an original photograph of Abraham Lincoln, believed taken on July 4, 1856, before the Lincoln-Douglas debates, by R. Hodgman (Princeton, Ill.). It comes with an 1865 newspaper account of Lincoln’s assassination.

The Elvis lot is a framed presentation, consisting of a 24K gold-plated record of his “Aloha From Hawaii” concert from 1973, cover art from the album, three concert tickets from 1977 (two from Savannah, Ga., one from Terre Haute, Ind.), and a photo of Presley. Also sold will be a men’s Rolex Tudor “Tiger” watch with a black leather band and paperwork signed by Tiger Woods.

Sportsmen in the crowd will be drawn to a rare carved wood and polychrome Drake Widgeon decoy made during the 1930s by Benz Wood Products Co. (Jefferson City, Mo.), and a late 19th century Springfield Model 1884 trapdoor rifle and bayonet with U.S. Army brass.

Two paintings depicting ducks in flight by the Italian-born Atlanta artist Athos R. Menaboni (1895-1990), both gouache under glass, will come under the gavel. One, titled Mallard, depicts a male and female mallard in flight and is pencil signed and titled. The other, titled Black Duck, shows a male and female black duck in flight, also pencil signed and titled. Both are framed.

An original oil on canvas painting by the British artist David G. Steell (1856-1930), titled Horses in a Field, measuring about 37½ inches by 52¼ inches (framed) and showing two pairs of horses among grassy rolling hills, is signed and dated. Also sold will be a circa 1800s handcarved and painted model of the Connecticut Navy ship the Oliver Cromwell, carved by Samuel Chapman, who served in the Connecticut Navy during the Revolutionary War.

Baby boomers will be transported back in time when they see a Silver Age 1958 Seeburg Model 161 Select-O-Matic jukebox with twin grill fins (1958 selling price: $1,275); the Vendo Coca-Cola vending machine (Model H81-D), produced in the mid-to-late 1950s, holding up to 81 bottles and with a 10-cent coin mechanism; and the black leather couches built into the back ends of actual 1957 Chevrolet Bel-Airs – with working tail lights.

DENVER, Pa. – Over the weekend of January 31 and February 1, 2015, Morphy Auctions will conduct its largest-ever Firearms & Knives sale, with more than 1,000 lots poised to cross the auction block. Absentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

The auction lineup reveals some great rarities, from a Civil War Berdan Sharps rifle to a documented Vietnam Remington Model 40 Sniper. Additionally, there are some highly desirable Presentation Colts, a wide selection of high-condition and deluxe Lever Guns, and many other firearms of the type so highly sought after by today’s collectors. Approximately 300 knives are included, as well.

“We have five firearms, ammunition and militaria experts consulting on our gun sales,” said Dan Morphy, president of Morphy Auctions. “They’re some of the top people in the business and are known and respected in their field. When they inspect the guns in our sales and write the catalog descriptions, collectors know they can depend on those descriptions to be absolutely accurate.”

There are numerous Civil War-era firearms in the upcoming sale. Lot 898 is a rare Sharps New Model 1859. In 1862, 2,000 such rifles were issued to Hiram Berdan’s 1st and 2nd Regiments of the US Sharpshooters. The example to be auctioned has a double-set trigger and falls into the serial number range that confirms it was used in the Civil War by a specially organized sniping unit that has been documented in many articles and books. Accompanied by a Springfield Research letter, the rifle is expected to make $6,000-$10,000.

A Civil War highlight with a storied past is Lot 1111, an 1861 “Confederate Contraband” Colt Navy revolver. It is one of two documented Colt percussion revolvers from a shipment of approximately 200 guns that were sent from the Colt factory to Charles B Cotton, the Collector of the Port of Louisville, Kentucky. On October 31, 1861, General William T Sherman ordered a seizure of arms and goods in Cotton’s possession. The guns confiscated in that raid are fairly well known in collector circles as “Contraband Colts.” Morphy’s will offer its example with an estimate of $20,000-$25,000.

Another Colt gem is Lot 278, a London-cased Model 1851 Navy revolver with an “L” stamp and English proof marks. This gun is in remarkable, nearly unused condition, its barrel retaining approximately 90% or better of the original factory high-polish blue finish. Accompanied by a near-mint Colt marked bullet mold, Dixon & Son stamped brass powder flask, nickel-plated cleaning rod, some conical bullets and other related accessories, it is estimated at $13,000-$20,000.

A Vietnam War survivor is Lot 326, a documented Remington Model 40 sniper rifle of the type used by the US Marine Corps. It is the very rifle featured, by serial number, on Page 261 of Peter R Senich’s book The One Round War. The Marines purchased 995 M40 sniper rifles from Remington between 1966 and 1977, but most of the guns were rebuilt in 1977 with heavy barrels and fiberglass stocks. The example being offered by Morphy’s is original and unmodified, making it so rare, it is “all but impossible to find on today’s market,” the catalog description says. Its presale estimate is $15,000-$30,000.

Nearly 300 lots of knives are featured in the sale, including several large 19th-century Bowie knives. Lot 1267 is an incredible Edmundo Whitey Bowie knife with German silver mounts and a silver horse-head pommel. Made in the 1850s or 1860s, this massive 16-inch-long knife is among the most sought-after of all Bowie knives from the pre-Civil War era and is estimated at $4,000-$4,500. Lot 1266, a 17-inch-long Alexander Bowie knife, dates to the 1840s/1850s and has a decorative handle topped with a German silver seashell pattern. Its estimate is $2,500-$4,500.

Both auction sessions will begin at 9 a.m. Eastern Time. To enquire about any item in the sale, call 717-335-3435 or email Kris Lee at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Irving Penn print carries high expectations at Sworders, Jan. 27

A rare print of two ginkgo leaves by American photographer Irving Penn. Estimate: £80,000- £120,000 ($121,700-$182,550). Sworders image

ESSEX COUNTY, UK – A rare and distinctive print of two ginkgo leaves taken by American photographer Irving Penn is being sold by Sworders in the 20th Century Art and Design sale on Tuesday, Jan. 27.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Intenet live bidding.

The iconic artwork is a highlight of the sale and is expected to sell for between £80,000 and £120,000. Irving Penn, who died in 2009, found fame with his unique style of fashion magazine cover photos, portraits and still life work. He famously quoted that “a good photograph is one that communicates the fact, touches the heart, and leaves the viewer a changed person for having seen it; it is in one word, effective.”

Sworders’ Managing Director Guy Schooling said, “It’s extremely exciting to be able to sell the work of such a major, modern and contemporary photographer – artwork which is seen usually only in the salerooms of New York, London and Paris. Irving Penn’s work is very fashionable and in the last 10 years has become highly collectable. Penn pioneered an unusual method of dry transfer printing and was able to produce beautiful prints from the originals.”

The print depicting the gingko leaves was one of just 22 created in 1992 and was bought at a charity auction by the current owner about 10 years ago. Since then it has hung in a Gloucestershire home. Another version of this print recently sold for £272,000 in America.

There is also a significant furniture section in the sale, with over 350 lots. Mid-century furniture has flourished in recent years, with Scandinavian design leading the way. Among several items of Danish furniture, a rosewood bureau is set to attract much interest with its typically compact and stylish look associated with Scandinavian designers. Though the market is strong, it still carries a relatively modest estimate of £600-£800.

Another interesting section is 20th century jewelry, with plenty of contemporary and unique designs. A gold Liberty Cymric freshwater pearl and turquoise necklace by Manxman Archibald Knox (1864-1933) is an unusual piece of Art Nouveau with a Celtic twist, estimated at £2,000-£3,000.

Sworders’ is one of the top regional fine art auctioneers in the UK and the auction house is planning 22 specialist sales in 2015 – the highest number in its history. Three 20th century Art and Design sales are due to be held this year in addition to the sale of the James Brett fine furniture collection of 17th, 18th and 19th century pieces. In June the company is also holding its first ever Accessories Sale, offering luxury fashion items, including handbags, sunglasses and costume jewelry.

Guy Schooling added, “It’s a very dynamic market at the moment, with a great demand for 20th century furniture by buyers of all ages. Changing fashions mean that Scandinavian furniture produced in the 1970s is particularly popular and the only way to match that desire is to hold more specialist sales.”

Modern and contemporary prints, paintings at Gray’s, Jan. 28

Lot 106. Samia Halaby (Palestinian, b. 1937) '#270 (Rainbow Spirals),' 1972/3. Gray's Auctioneers image

CLEVELAND – Selections from the Stanley Yulish collection of contemporary and modern prints and paintings are up for auction at Gray’s in Cleveland on Jan. 28, with online live bidding provided by LiveAuctioneers.com.

The auction includes pieces from established artists including Dali, Picasso, Henry Moore, Georges Rouault and Max Ernst together with works from pop to op including Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Victor Vasarely, Yaacov Agam, Richard Anuskiewicz and George Snyder.

Highlights of the auction include Lot 1, a free spirited lithograph from 1930, Bather by Raoul Dufy. It is signed and number 20/40 in pencil. A sensuous example of his colorful and optimistic open-air scenes, this lithograph depicts a beach bathing beauty turning away toward an ocean busy with boats bobbing and waves undulating shoreward. Lot 20 is Marc Chagall’s The Blue Clown, a playful color lithograph,

signed and numbered 27/50 in the lower margin in pencil and completed in 1984.

Samia Halaby’s magnificent geometric abstraction #270 (Rainbow Spirals), an oil on canvas, was completed in February 1973 and anchors the sale at Lot 106. An optical illusion of colorful stripes depicting spirals, the painting confounds and amuses the viewer. The Palestinian-born artist and scholar who lives and works in New York, completed this painting during her tenure as the first female associate professor at Yale School of Art. Her work is collected by private collectors and public institutions around the world.

Kristopher Benedict’s untitled canvas at lot 110A is an oil on canvas from 2006 employing a figurative motif and a fauvist use of color accumulating layers of visual information. At first glance the use of color is visually arresting but on closer inspection the more quotidian subjects of the painting emerge engaging the viewer with a striking visual narrative. Benedict’s work is in several collections and he shows at the Sue Scott Gallery in New York.

Chilean artist Gustavo Novoa constructs a dream-like canvas at lot 121. The gently radiant colors of Novoa’s luxuriant foliage seem to wield a mystical power, bringing together lions, a panther and a unicorn staring intensely across the water at an anthropomorphized panther who leans back nonchalantly on one arm as if poised to sip a cocktail. The reflection of the animals in the water enhance the distance between the viewer and the viewed. Novoa’s new work has debuted at the Wally Findlay Galleries in New York since the early 1970s and is in collections and institutions across the globe.

Condition reports will be provided upon request.

Oil on canvas by the German painter Emil Rau (1858-1937), titled ‘Tyrolean Couple with Chalet and Mountainous Landscape.’ Estimate: $3,000-$5,000. A.B. Levy's image

PALM BEACH, Fla. - A rare Swiss platinum and diamond open face watch made circa 1933-1950 by Patek Philippe, an important Cartier bracelet boasting a fine old mine diamond weighing about 2.51 carats, and a 25-carat diamond necklace set with a staggering 89 round cut diamonds are just a few of the top lots at A.B. Levy's next auction, on Thursday, Jan. 22.

LiveAuctioneers.com will facilitate Internet live bidding.

What is being billed as a Superb Palm Beach Estate Auction will feature nearly 300 lots of fine timepieces, estate jewelry, antiques and Asian art, all starting at 6 p.m. Eastern time, at A.B. Levy's showroom in the Flamingo Building, 1921 S. Dixie Highway in West Palm Beach.

The action will get underway with around 50 vintage and modern timepieces, featuring watches by Patek Philippe, Cartier, Rolex and Gerard-Perregaux, among others. Later, bidders will be treated to a fine collection of Chinese snuff bottles, including desirable examples in coral and ivory. Original works of art and dazzling estate jewelry items will round out the day's offerings.

European works of art will include micromosaics, plus there will be original paintings by noted American and British artists, as well as French bronzes and Continental porcelains from various owners. Fine and decorative arts will also be sold. “I can't think of a better way to begin the new year than with an auction packed with so many quality items,” said Albert Levy of A.B. Levy's.

The Patek Phillipe men's open face watch is set with diamonds. It is estimated to bring $2,000-$4,000. The watch (No. 00600) has an annular movement. As handsome as it is rare and desirable to collectors, the watch should attract much bidder attention.

The Cartier bracelet centered by a 2.51-carat diamond framed in mine cut diamonds also features an articulated strap and clasp set throughout, with 268 diamonds totaling 26 carats. It should sail past its $8,000-$12,000 estimate. Also by Cartier is a rare 18K gold wristwatch made circa 1925, with mechanical movement, rare openwork bezel and black Cartier strap (est. $7,000-$10,000).

The 15-inch-long necklace set with 89 round cut diamonds graduating in size and weighing 25 carats is mounted in platinum and is an expected top lot, with an estimate of $30,000-$50,000. Also, an 18K two-color gold and diamond necklace centering a white gold heart and accented by round diamonds, pave-set and weighing 0.81 carats, should garner $4,000-$6,000.

Asian objects will feature a Chinese rock crystal snuff bottle made circa 1740-1840 with a flawless and well-hollowed body, a Chinese carved coral vase and cover with animal handles at the side and a lion finial on the lid, and a Chinese carved ivory snuff bottle of cylindrical oval shape, decorated all over with figures, with a stopper. These lots should bring $600-$900 each.

A late 19th century Chinese Export porcelain well-and-tree platter with an oval plate, each one showing vignettes of flora and fauna, is estimated at $200-$400. From France, a pair of circa 1870 flora-form Old Paris porcelain footed vases with gilt highlights should reach $300-$500, while a set of 14 stamped Saint Louis emerald green wine glasses is expected to hit $100-$300.

In the fine art category, a figural oil on canvas by the German painter Emil Rau (1858-1937), titled Tyrolean Couple with Chalet and Mountainous Landscape, 38 inches by 30 inches, carries an estimate of $3,000-$5,000; while a pair of fine Italian mosaic works, one of a cavalier and a farm girl and the other of huddled wild horses, both 20th century, should each hit $2,000-$5,000.

Returning to timepieces, a steel Zenith El Primero self-winding mechanical wristwatch with bracelet featuring a sapphire, 50-hour power reserve and a black leather strap, should go for $4,000-$6,000; and a Rolex Milgauss men's wristwatch with green crystal and Rolex-certified chronometer self-winding movement and black dial should reach $5,000-$8,000.

A fine DeLaneau ladies' diamond and gold wristwatch with strands of gold and diamonds, in 18K yellow gold, with diamonds weighing about 1.50 carats and mother of pearl, should hammer for $3,000-$5,000. DeLaneau was founded in 1949 by the couple Rolf and Yolanda Tschudin. Their creations were as visionary as their founders and are highly prized by collectors.

A lovely pair of white gold and diamond ear studs set with two round brilliant-cut diamonds, each one weighing 1.51 carats and set in 14K white gold, with 14K yellow gold backs (graded I color, VS1 clarity) should rise to $10,000-$20,000; and a pair of 18K emerald and diamond ear clips featuring four rows of cabochon emeralds and round brilliant-cut diamonds weighing about 3.60 carats and mounted in 18K yellow gold, is expected to find a new owner for $4,000-$7,000.

Rounding out just some of the day's expected top performers, a platinum ring set with three diamonds weighing approximately 4.50 carats (size 9¼) is expected to slip onto a new finger for $8,000-$12,000; while a star sapphire and diamond ring, centered by a star sapphire with two side diamonds mounted in 14K white gold (size 7), has a modest estimate of $500-$800.

A buyer’s premium of 20 percent will be applied to all purchases up to $100,000 (15 percent after that). Phone and absentee bids will be accepted, in addition to live and internet bidding.

A.B. Levy’s is based in Palm Beach, Fla., at 211 Worth Ave. The firm is actively accepting quality consignments.

Stephenson's Jan. 23 numismatic auction led by gold & silver coins, proof sets

Uncirculated Carson City Morgan silver dollars. Stephenson's Auctioneers image

PHILA., Pa. – Precious metals have long been viewed as a safe harbor for investors who are riding out stock-market dips. For many, the preferred way to establish a private metals-based hedge fund has been to purchase gold, silver and other rare coins from a trusted auction house like Stephenson’s of suburban Philadelphia. Their January 23, 2015 Coin Auction includes an extensive variety of options for collectors’ consideration, from an American Eagle $5 gold coin to uncirculated silver dollars and proof sets. Abentee and Internet live bidding will be available through LiveAuctioneers.

The core of the sale consists of two estate collections, one of which was sourced through a financial adviser in the Mid-Atlantic region. “We have worked with the adviser before, auctioning property on behalf of his other clients, so we were pleased to receive a call from him about a coin collection,” said Cindy Stephenson, owner of Stephenson’s Auctioneers.

The second of the two headlining collections comes from another estate already familiar to Stephenson’s. “We auctioned the actual residence and sold other pieces from this estate. The consignor was very pleased and decided to entrust us with additional items, including gold jewelry and coins,” Stephenson said.

Auctioneer, ISA-accredited appraiser and Numismatic Guaranty Corporation member Tom Wakeley selected several auction lots for special mention. One of them, Lot 56, is a pair of 2½-oz Marian Anderson gold medallions by American Arts. Another, Lot 9, comprises 10 uncirculated sterling silver Panamanian 20-Balboa coins struck by the Franklin Mint.

Also noteworthy, Wakeley said, is the selection of United States Morgan and Peace silver dollars interspersed throughout the sale, with Lots 33 through 38 expected to draw the highest bids. “Those six Morgan silver dollars are from the Carson City [Nevada] Mint, which makes them very desirable to collectors,” Wakeley said. Each comes with a numbered certificate from the mint.

Foreign proof sets will cross the auction block, including silver sets privately issued by United States Commemorative Gallery. Among the nations represented in the coinage are Panama, Trinidad and Jamaica.

Lots 72 through 86 consist of United States proof sets from the 1950s, a decade favored by collectors. In addition, there are U.S. 1-oz Silver Eagles, a 1990 American Eagle $5 gold coin, and many Mercury dimes, Walking Liberty half dollars, and large cents. Also to be offered are two sealed US Mint bags of uncirculated 1963P Jefferson nickels ($200 face value) and 1963 Lincoln pennies ($50 face value), respectively.

An unusual entry is a bronze medallion that was struck at the U.S. Mint to commemorate the “1860 First Embassy from Japan.” Signed by “Paquet,” this particular issue has been known to fetch high prices. “I’ve seen a medallion of this type sell for as much as $2,500 at auction,” Wakeley noted.

Rounding out the sale are Federal Reserve notes, Star notes, Columbian Exposition half dollars, state quarters (some colorized), a 2,000-grain Franklin Mint Independence Hall silver ingot, and many other sought-after numismatic items.

Stephenson’s Friday, January 23, 2015 Coin Auction will commence at 10 a.m. Eastern Time. Bidders may participate absentee or live online through LiveAuctioneers.

“This is our first time to include Internet live bidding in one of our coin events,” said Stephenson. “We’re adding LiveAuctioneers to more and more of our specialty sales. We tried it out with our last firearms auction and it worked very well for us, so now we’ll see how coin buyers respond to it.”

A strong candidate for top lot will be a Palmer Civil War bolt-action carbine in good condition, with a bolt that slides and locks smoothly and a frame that reads “Wm. Palmer, Patent, Dec. 22, 1863” (est. $3,000-$5,000). Another is a Maynard 1863 second model breech loading carbine with .50 caliber bore, 20-inch barrel and walnut stock with cartouche marks (est. $2,000-$3,000).

Two antique firearms carry presale estimates of $2,500-$3,500. One is a rare Sharps & Hankins (Philadelphia) model 1861 Navy rifle with 32½-inch-long round barrel, rifled bore, walnut stock and dark brown patina. The other is a Remington (Illion, N.Y.) type 2 split breech carbine, the first Remington to use metallic cartridges, made under a sub-contract with the Savage Arms Co.

A type 1 Gwyn & Campbell (Hamilton, Ohio) model 1862 carbine with a round 20-inch barrel partially octagonal at the breech, rifled bore, .52 caliber, marked on the frame “Union Rifle,” should fetch $1,500-$2,500; and an 1857 Smith's (Baltimore) patent percussion carbine, .50 caliber, with 21½-inch partial octagonal barrel, is expected to change hands for $1,500-$2,000.

A Joslyn (Stonington, Conn.) 1862 first model carbine with 22-inch barrel, rifled bore, breech loading, .52 caliber, signed by the maker on the lock plate, having clean metal with no patina, should hit $1,800-$2.200; and a Sharps (Hartford, Conn.) 1865 new model carbine, .52 caliber, with 22-inch barrel and rifled bore with maker's mark on the barrel, should make $1,500-$2,000.

A Richardson & Overman (Philadelphia) model 1860 carbine with a 22¼-inch long barrel and .50 caliber rifled bore, signed on the lock plate “Gallagher's Patent – June 17, 1860,” should command $1,500-$2,000. Also, a Burnside (Providence, R.I.) single-shot 1864 carbine, 5th model, rifled .54 caliber with 20-inch-long barrel, twice maker marked, should hit $1,000-$1,500.

In the lamps and lighting category, a Pairpoint Puffy yellow rose table lamp with 10-inch puffy shade decorated with a bouquet of beautiful yellow roses on a green background, on a Pairpoint base, is estimated to bring $3,000-$5,000. Also, a six-arm angle lamp chandelier with rare brass 6-arm fixture with etched glass globes and opalescent swirl shades, should garner $3,000-$5,000.

NEW ORLEANS – A two-day estates auction featuring original paintings by the iconic folk artist Clementine Hunter, a hand-colored engraving from the John James Audubon book Birds of America, a pair of Meissen porcelain figural compotes, a 19th century fine carved mahogany full tester bed, and a French ebonized brass inlaid rosewood cave a liqueur will be held Jan. 17-18.

LiveAuctioneers.com will provide Internet live bidding services.

The auction will be conducted by Crescent City Auction Gallery, in the firm's gallery located at 1330 St. Charles Ave. in New Orleans, starting at 9 a.m. Central time on Saturday, Jan. 17, and 10 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 18.

Headlining the event will be items from a Tennessee antiquarian, plus select merchandise from numerous Southern estates. “This sale will be a great way to start off the new year,” said Adam Lambert of Crescent City Auction Gallery. In all, 1,230 lots will come up for bid.

The legendary Louisiana folk painter Clementine Hunter (1886-1988) is often referred to as “the black Grandma Moses.” Her bold and colorful images of Southern plantation life are coveted by collectors. Four of her paintings will come up for bid on auction day, all of them oils on board: Brushing Her Hair, circa 1975, Red Bird on a Branch and two titled Zinnias, one circa 1980.

The American classical style carved mahogany full tester bed, made in the South sometime in the 19th century, is impressive and stately, at 112 inches tall by 60 inches wide by 82 inches deep. Also sold will be an American Southern classical style carved flame mahogany double door armoire, also circa 19th century.

The hand-colored engraving titled Great White Heron from the book Birds of America by John James Audubon (1785-1851), was executed by Robert Havell and is watermarked “J. Whatman 1836” from the elephant folio. Unframed, the engraving is 25¼ inches tall by 39½ inches wide. It is engraving No. 57-Plate CCLXXXI. Such engravings are considered highly collectible.

There are not one but two French caves a liqueur (decorative boxes containing decanters and glasses meant for alcoholic beverages) in the auction. One, circa 1870, is fitted for 16 gilt decorated paneled liqueur glasses and four matching decanters. The other is an ormolu mounted ebonized rosewood red boulle model, also from the 19th century.

The impressive pair of Meissen porcelain figural compotes are on winged putto supports on applied floral scrolled bases, with gilt highlights. Both compotes are 22½ inches tall. The sale will also feature sterling silver, including early 20th century presentation pieces, and jewelry items, including diamonds, rubies, emeralds, tanzanites, opals and pearls.

Lots from France will be offered in abundance. These will include a circa 1890 three-piece gilt and patinated spelter and green onyx figural clock set, time and strike, with a figure of “Paix” by J. Germain, plus a matching pair of urn-form candlestick garnitures; and a belle epoque-style gilt bronze six-light chandelier made in the 20th century, 29 inches tall by 24½ inches in diameter.

Period French furniture will also come up for bid frequently throughout the sale. Featured will be a French Empire Louis XV-style carved walnut marble-top commode, circa 1870; a 19th century French Empire style ormolu mounted carved walnut marble-top commode; and a French Louis XV-style ormolu mounted parquetry inlaid marble-top bombe commode made circa 19th century.

Armoires from France will feature a 19th century Empire style ormolu mounted carved cherry armoire; a mid-19th century Louis XV-style carved cherry double door armoire; and a huge Louis XVI-style carved walnut double door armoire. Also sold will be an early 20th century Chinese carved hardwood etagere parlor cabinet with elaborate overlaid bone floral and bird decoration.

One painting expected to generate bidder interest is an 1823 oil on canvas by French artist Jean Joseph Vaudechamp (1790-1866) who was active in New Orleans from 1831 to 1839. The work, titled Portrait of a Man and a Woman, Presumably Baroness Louise Deconchy Receiving Word of Her Husband’s Death in Battle, is signed and presented in a period giltwood and gesso frame.

An oil wash painting by the renowned Georgia-born New Orleans artist Alexander J. Drysdale (1870-1934), titled Moss Draped Oaks, 1917, pencil signed and dated, is one of two works by Drysdale in the auction. Also selling will be a signed watercolor painting by Robert M. Rucker (Louisiana, 1932-2001), titled Buck and Hunter in the Woods. It is 28 inches tall by 9 inches in width.

A watercolor work by Will Henry Stevens (Louisiana/Indiana, 1881-1949), best known for his modernist views of Louisiana lowlands and deltas, titled Hilly Lake Landscape, 9½ inches by 11½ inches, will cross the block. Also up for auction will be an unsigned oil on Masonite painting by Clarence Millet (Louisiana, 1897-1959), titled The Turpentine Still. Millet was regarded for his simplistic realist style.

Lots 1-750 will be sold on Saturday, and lots 751-1,230 will come up for bid on Sunday.

The Lt. Dabney Scales archive includes this extensive Civil War CDV album, containing dozens of images of Confederate Naval officers. Also offered is his diary, detailing life on board the CSS Shenandoah. Each lot carries an estimate of $10,000-$12,000. Case Antiques Auction image.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Twenty-four-year-old Lt. Dabney Minor Scales sensed he was witnessing history on Nov. 6, 1865, as he and his fellow crewmates on the CSS Shenandoah became the last Confederate forces to surrender. So he documented the event in his diary – an account he titled “Cruising for Yankees.” Now, almost 150 years later, his descendants are auctioning that diary, along with a trove of rare photographic CDV images of the ship and crew and other related objects. They will be centerpiece lots at the Winter Case Antiques Auction, to be held Jan. 24 at the company’s gallery in Knoxville. The sale also features more than 800 lots of European and American paintings, furniture, jewelry and other antiques, including a notable single-owner collection of Deep South coin silver, and items from the private museum of Judge George Greene of Phenix City, Ala., and neighboring Columbus, Ga.

Internet live bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com.

The Scales archive represents a rare glimpse into life at sea during the Civil War (army archives are more common). The CSS Shenandoah is remembered for capturing 38 ships and firing the last shot of the Civil War. Upon receiving confirmation of Lee’s surrender – months after it actually happened – the crew sailed to England, where they docked and lowered the Confederate flag for the last time. (That flag was later given by a Scales relative to the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, Va.) Scales’ diary recounts the extraordinary events onboard the ship, with entries often accompanied by small drawings. Also of interest to Civil War collectors is Scales’ CDV album containing dozens of photographic likenesses of identified Confederate naval officers. The auction also includes the Civil War archive of Russell Cassady of Georgia 9th; the diary of chaplain T.D. Witherspoon of the 2nd and 42nd Mississippi; and a collection of Civil War battle maps, along with a Revolutionary War-era notebook belonging to Gen. James Winchester, one of the earliest settlers of Middle Tennessee and a founder of Memphis; it records a mysterious $100,000 war payment concerning the Marquis de Lafayette and later, notes from the Tennessee Territorial census, taken in 1795.

Silver collectors know how hard it can be to find Southern coin silver, since not as many pieces were made in the South, and many were melted down during and after the Civil War. This auction features more than 50 lots of hollowware and flatware from Tennessee, Mississippi, New Orleans, Alabama and Georgia, all acquired over a half-century by collector John Montague of Memphis. Highlights are water pitchers from Mississippi and New Orleans; mint julep cups, an Adolph Himmel sugar basket and ladle with figural insects; an early New Orleans ladle by Pierre Lamothe; a Nashville coin silver hair comb; and a wine tasting cup by Emile Profilet of Natchez. Other silver includes a 148-piece boxed set of French First Standard silver flatware with monogrammed crest; four George III sterling candlesticks; English and American sterling tea sets and flatware sets; a set of 12 Mexican chargers; a monumental Chinese export silver dragon bowl (11 inches in diameter), and a Chinese silver tea service composed of 10 pieces, including cups.

Fine art is one of the largest categories in the auction. Highlights include two paintings by important Knoxville-born African-American artist Beauford Delaney: the first an abstract textile and the second, a portrait of the artist’s mother; plus a carved limestone bird sculpture with exhibition history by William Edmondson, the first African American to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art. There are also landscapes by Johann Klombeek, Hermann Herzog, Catherine Wiley, A.E. Backus, Jules Herve, Maurice Braun, Harvey Joiner, Nellie Knopf, Thomas Hicks, and Alexander Drysdale, and an early 19th century town landscape (possibly depicting Salem, North Carolina). Other paintings include still lifes by Abbott Fuller Graves, Jean de Botton, David Burliuk, and an early Dutch School artist; a landscape and still life by Carrie Hill; an interior scene by Henri De Braekeleer; and a painting of Soviet officers at tea by Russian artist Iosif Mikhailovich Gurvich. Of special note for portrait collectors are two paintings from the Greene Museum: a portrait of plantation owner John Woolfolk, attributed to Raphael Peale, and a signed miniature of Judge Benajah Bibb of Alabama. (The Greene Museum focused on historical items from the Phenix City, Ala./Columbus, Ga., area and was founded by Judge George Greene, who died earlier this year). There is also a pair of early 19th century oils by Ralph E.W. Earl depicting Tennessee thoroughbred breeder Hardy Murphree Cryer and his wife; a Charleston, South Carolina, school portrait of a woman in the manner of Thomas Sully; a Louisiana portrait by Francois Bernard; a folk art pastel of a man in the manner of Micah Williams; a monumental portrait of a British officer in the manner of Thomas Hudson; and a collection of 18th century engraved portraits of presidents and Revolutionary War figures.

Collectors of contemporary art will note the portfolio suite Alice in Wonderland by Salvador Dali (112/200) and a Dali bas relief, Don Quixote, as well as an abstract watercolor by Guillermo Wiedemann; 3 paintings by Keith Morrison; 2 Joan Miro etchings including Fusees 1959; two Leroy Neiman serigraphs; a Robert Rauschenberg lithograph; a metallic textile Biblical-themed picture by Selma Hurwitz; a photograph of Picasso by David Douglas Duncan; and a concept design for a carousel and theme park by Red Grooms. A bronze sculpture awarded as the trophy for the 1957 Women’s World Basketball Championship will be offered, along with three bronze bas-relief plaques depicting scenes from World War II by Minnesota sculptor L.R. Kirchner; a geometric steel sculpture by Kurt Larisch; and figural bronze sculpture by Jorge Cuevas, Heriberto Juarez, Kurt Larisch, Hippolyte Moreau, Henri Lautier, Robert Ball and Walt Horton.

An outstanding East Tennessee Federal chest of drawers with profuse vine, blossom and fan inlay leads the furniture offerings. Company president John Case pointed out it is among the most elaborately decorated formal examples of Tennessee Federal furniture found to date. There is also an East Tennessee walnut tall chest and a corner cupboard that descended in the family of Revolutionary War Col. John Sawyer. Hailing from the famed Calumet Farm, in the heart of Kentucky’s thoroughbred country, is an extraordinary sugar chest in the form of a miniature sideboard, a rare block-front chest of drawers and tall case clock, all from the estate of Mrs. Bertha Wright; along with a Kentucky Jackson press from another Bluegrass state collection. The sale also features a number of pieces of French furniture (including a Napoleon III commode with bronze mounts signed by Victor Paillard) and midcentury modern furniture including a desk by noted Mississippi designer Bertha Schaefer.

There are more than 50 lots of estate and antique jewelry, including a 3.10-carat diamond solitaire ring; a 6.25-carat tanzanite and diamond ring; and a 10.28-tanzanite stone, all with GIA certification. Antique jewelry collectors will likely be interested in an 18K yellow gold Patek Phillipe pocketwatch with 1916 presentation engraving and original certificate; several old European cut diamond rings; Art Deco period diamond jewelry; Victorian hair jewelry and a Victorian coral parure; and 1940s Bakelite and costume jewelry. There are also a number of gold coins.

Southern pottery is a staple at Case. The expected top seller is an East Tennessee “Great Road” redware jar with manganese decoration. Other choice pieces are an large (15 inches high) N.H. Dixon signed North Carolina salt-dripped stoneware jar that descended in the potter’s family; an Alabama alkaline-glazed ring jug; an Isaac Thomas (Kentucky) stoneware jar; and several examples of Virginia and Georgia pottery including face jugs by Lanier Meaders and B.B. Craig. American Art Pottery includes Rookwood vases decorated by Sallie Coyne and Elizabeth Lincoln, and there is a collection of Native American pottery and textiles highlighted by an early large (10 inches high) and well-preserved Acoma olla.

The porcelain category features a large collection of figural Royal Bayreuth porcelain from the estate of the late Elise Steiner of Nashville, including rarities such as horse and butterfly creamers, and the popular Devil and Cards line. There are also several KPM plaques; a rare Royal Crown Derby covered urn; Dorothy Doughty birds; a pair of Worcester Flight, Barr and Barr taper sticks; several examples of Sevres and Old Paris porcelain, and an exceptionally large collection of Mason’s Imari-style ironstone with several rare serving forms.

A Rene Lalique amber Rinceaux chandelier leads the art glass category. There are also lamps by Pairpoint, Handel and Lotton; a Webb cameo vase; and a pair of Bohemian armorial beakers.

Several early examples of Chinese cinnabar lacquer stand out in the Asian category, including a large round, covered cinnabar box and a pair of Ming Dynasty cinnabar jars. Also dating from the Ming or early Qing dynasty are two outstanding pairs of silk embroidered panels with figures and dragons. A Qing court official’s necklace is expected to draw international attention, as is a Japanese Takamaki-e miniature cabinet and a Meiji ceramic censer with marks for the workshop of Makusu Kozan.

The auction also features several lots of decorative gilt bronze including an ormolu and champlevé enamel clocks retailed by Tiffany, with garniture urns and hand-painted portrait pendulum; a carved walnut Polyphon upright coin-operated music box; a collection of Schoenhut circus figures and other quality vintage toys; a Lemon Crush syrup dispenser; quilts; rare and decorative books; and an early 20th century Louis Vuitton steamer trunk.
