  • Selections fromthe Stevenson-EasbyCollection,Chestnut Hill,Philadelphialots 450590

    Tuesday April 20th, 2010

    George Gordon Meade Easby (19182005) inherited a remarkable collectionof 18th century Philadelphia furniture, Philadelphia silver, and Chinese exportporcelain. A descendant of several Signers of the Declaration ofIndependence and of some of Philadelphias most powerful merchantfamilies including Penington, Shoemaker, Dickinson, Hartshorne, Waln,Large, Sargeant, Stevenson and Meade, Easby was most proud of his greatgrandfather, Civil War Major General George Gordon Meade.

    The significance of the collection has long been recognized. Selections havebeen exhibited in the Diplomatic Reception Rooms of the U. S. Departmentof State, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the White House. WilliamMacPherson Horners seminal work of 1935, Blue Book Philadelphia Furniture16821807, included twelve plates of Easby family furniture. Previousauctions of family furniture brought record prices.

    An artist by training, Meade Easby worked as a syndicated cartoonist in the1940s, briefly acted in Hollywood and summer stock, and served for twentyfive years on the Fine Arts Committee of the Department of State. He livedmost of his life at Baleroy, a large gracious home in Chestnut Hill, built in1911. Easby frequently opened Baleroy and its collection to the public forcharity events, and as a believer in the supernatural, for ghost tours.

    The attic of Baleroy provided a treasure trove of early Philadelphiamanuscripts and documents relating to political, social and business issuesof the 18th and early 19th centuries. Highlights include a copy of MatthewCareys 1796 pocket Atlas in original sheep binding; manuscript and partlyprinted documents relating to shipping enterprises of the Hartshorne, Largeand Phillips family; Shoemaker business correspondence; and Adam MayStevensons diaries from the 1850s to the 1880s rich in details of dailyPhiladelphia life with delightful pen and ink vignettes. All will be offered inthe Books, Manuscripts and Prints auction of May 27th

    The collection was not exclusively American in origin and the Europeanfurniture, English silver, ceramics, clocks and the sedan chair from Baleroywill be sold on May 4th and May 5th in the English and Continental Auction.Oriental Rugs and Carpets from Baleroy will be offered on May 28th.

    Mr. Easby was an avid collector of pocket watches. A portion of hisextensive collection will be offered July 16 and 17. Jewelry selections will beoffered in the fine Jewelry Sale, June 14th.

    It is with great pleasure that Samuel T. Freeman and company offers theStevenson-Easby Family collection at auction.
