Unsigned, titled in inscriptions below. Oil on fberboard, 19 1/4 x 22 1/2 in., in a black-painted wood frame with gilt-brass foriform bosses in the corners. Condition: Minor retouch. Provenance: Descended from the original owner in the Brooks-Wheeler family of Watertown, Concord, Medford, and Winchester, Massachusetts. Literature: A similar painting by the same unknown artist is pictured in Sumpter Priddy, American Fancy: Exuberance in the Arts 1790-1840 (Chipstone Foundation, Milwaukee Art Museum, 2004), p. 124, and is pictured in an advertisement for Marguerite Riordan, Stonington, Connecticut, in The Magazine Antiques, September 1987, p. 373. Note: In the 1830s, the public imagination in the United States was captivated by motion. Canals were connecting eastern cities with Western resources, like the Erie Canal in New York and the Middlesex Canal in Massachusetts. Radiating outward from trade centers like Baltimore and Boston, the earliest railroads began to snake through rural areas, offering faster and more reliable transport for goods and passengers throughout the year. Daredevils and showmen took to the air in balloons, making headlines with their well-attended launches from public spaces like the Boston Common. Americans observed these developments from their homes and farms, reading newspaper accounts of railroad construction and saving prints of new public fgures like balloonist Charles Ferson Durant. Especially in New England, their lives were lived in the shadow of a long history. In Medford, Massachusetts, where English settlement had begun in 1630, the confuence of so many transportation innovations was especially notable. In this painting by an unknown, likely untrained artist, a handful of residents observe Medfords unique intersection of the Mystic River, the Middlesex Canal, and the Boston & Lowell Railroad, newly completed in 1835. In the distance, an aeronaut in his balloon foats above the countryside, almost certainly a reference to a well-publicized ascent by Durant from Boston Common in 1834. A note on the back of the painting in period handwriting indicates that the houses are not strictly accurate representations but stand in for effect. Apparently quoting from prominent Medford, Massachusetts, citizen Shepherd Brooks (1835-1922), an inscription on the back of the painting reads, West Medford view 1835 taken from Mystic River below R.R. bridge. R.R. built 1835. The canal made 1803, given up 1851. Fine houses in picture are imaginary. Indeed, the intersection between the three (river, canal, and railroad) is also slightly skewed: the intersection existed but was not quite so angular as the painting suggests. In the lower left, a canal boat proceeds northward along the Middlesex Canal toward a lock, likely carrying raw material like cotton which was shipped into Boston for the burgeoning textile mills of Lowell. Though that route revolutionized transport between the two cities, it was limited by the seasons: frozen water in winter and muddy towpaths in spring made travel diffcult. Constructed to provide year-round, reliable shipping, the Boston & Lowell Railroad inadvertently sparked the publics interest in passenger travel. The stagecoach-style cars pulled by the early locomotive in this painting appear chock-full of eager travellers, who put up with the bumpy ride of a granite-bed railway to make the journey at 60 miles per hour. In this painting, the artist draws together a remarkable confuence of the industrial and the domestic and imbues them with great charm and enthusiasm. In overlapping the Medford transportation intersection with an anonymous set of observers and their homes, he successfully manages a delicate balance between the growing excitement of Americas Industrial Revolution and the enduring beauty of New Englands domestic landscape. $20,000-30,00015 Online bidding at www.skinnerinc.com69American School, 19th CenturyPair of Portraits of Daniel Aikens and His Wife Rhoda (Richmond) Aikens of Barnard, Vermont. Unsigned, the reverse inscribed with the names and ages of the sitters, Daniel, age 27, Rhoda, age 16, and also their dates of birth, marriage (1832), and death, inscribed in a different hand. Oil on panel, 25 x 20 in., unframed. Condition: Panels bowed, age crack at center on Rhodas portrait, scattered abrasions, and retouch. Note: These portraits are probably related to a portrait sold at Skinner on August 12, 2001, sale 2092, Lot 173, depicting Rollin Richmond (the brother of Rhoda, the woman portrayed here) of Barnard, Vermont, and which was dated February 1831 on the reverse. At the time it was sold, the portrait was attributed to Asahel Lynde Powers, an itinerant Vermont folk portrait painter, however, it was thought by the purchaser of the portrait to be the work of folk painter Amanda Powers, a relative of Asahel, possibly his sister.These portraits were painted in 1830, a couple of years before the sitters were married. According to William M. Newton, History of Barnard, Vermont, with family genealogies, Vol. II (Burlington: Burlington Vermont Historical Society, 1928), Captain Daniel Aikens was born on September 24, 1802, in Barnard, Vermont, the fourth child of Elijah and Rebecca (Tupper) Aikens, Elijah was a farmer who kept a country inn. Daniel married Mary Vanlora (1804-1832), and after her death, he married Rhoda Briggs Richmond in 1832, the daughter of Maj. Lemuel and Joanna (Briggs) Richmond, who was born November 8, 1814, in Barnard and died December 19, 1876. Daniel owned the saw and grist mill in Barnard village. He was a captain in the militia, was town clerk from 1845 to 1848, and attended the Vermont constitutional convention in 1850. In the 1850 census Daniel was listed as a farmer living in Barnard with his wife Rhoda and four children, and as a carpenter in the 1860 census. He died on August 25, 1882, in Boston.$15,000-25,00016 Additional information and photos at www.skinnerinc.com6970Ammi Phillips (American, 1788-1865)Portrait of Mary Ingraham Holding Her Spectacles and a Bible, c. 1830.

BELLAMY MAKER 1876 on the bottom, for John Haley Bellamy (American, 1836-1914), rectangular box with hinged lid supported on applied carved paw feet, the top and sides ornamented with a central relief-carved symbol of American iconography surrounded by arabesque scrolled foliage and fowers, the top centered with the Great Seal of the United States, the front carved with a spreadwing eagle grasping a banner inscribed E PLURIBUS UNUM over an American shield, the shields heightened with red coloration, the right and left sides with allegorical angelic fgures, and the back with a simplifed stylized American shield, ht. 8 1/2, wd. 19, dp. 12 in.$30,000-50,00022 Additional information and photos at www.skinnerinc.com91Known by Americana enthusiasts everywhere as the carver of eagles, John Haley Bellamy made his living in the second half of the 19th century selling carvings of the American symbol to adorn ships and walls across New England. His body of work is composed almost completely of the iconic eagle with banner that appears with some frequency in well-known institutional and private collections. While this box is certainly a departure from his most well-known productions, it is nonetheless an example of Bellamy at his best.In the fve visible panels of this box, Bellamy shows off his extensive skill as a carver and designer. Probably intended for personal use or that of a client, it bears extensive stylistic and technical similarities to another box known to have been carved by Bellamy for his own purposes, a box heavily carved in a similar manner but with his familys coat-of-arms rather than with American patriotic motifs. In addition, this box bears Bellamys signature on its bottom panel, lettered before the word MAKER. Carefully examined by James A. Craig, curator and author specializing in 19th century American marine art, the box has been found to be so certainly by Bellamys hand that it is slated for inclusion in Craigs upcoming book on Bellamys work. Craig connects several elements on the box to other known examples of Bellamys carving. For example, the stylized forid shield on the back panel of the box relates quite directly to the same shape on the gangway board Bellamy carved for the screw-sloop-of-war U.S.S. Enterprise. On the top of the box, the Great Seal of the United States appears, rigourously carved in careful detail. An eagle on the front panel of the box spreads its wings and ducks its head in a pose very similar to Bellamys most common output, clasping a banner in its talons that bears the motto E. Pluribus Unum.Surrounding each of these elements, though, are felds of carving having a greater sense of fourish than the artist indulged in his more market-oriented carvings for ships and public buildings. Working at a moment in time when designers enthusiastically revived motifs from the history of decorative arts, Bellamy here employs foliate C-scrolls from the mid-18th century, hairy paw feet from the early 19th century, and patriotic motifs that belonged very much to his own 1870s zeitgeist. In this combination, he demonstrates his awareness of contemporary trends, trends to which he most certainly would have been exposed in everyday domestic and public life, through visual and material culture. The resulting box is a pleasingly eclectic and highly successful object of late 19th century design. A copy of James A. Craigs full report is available upon request.23 Online bidding at www.skinnerinc.comMahogany carved trunk with the Bellamy family crest, John Haley Bellamy(American, 1836-1914), c. 1875.

Tucker (Massachusetts, 1784-1853)Profle Portrait of a Boy Holding an Orange. Signed and dated By Mary B. Tucker. 1842 l.r. Watercolor and pencil on paper, 22 x 18 1/4 in., in a mahogany veneer frame with gilt liner. Condition: Laid down onto card, toning, tear c.r., minor foxing. Note: A painting of two children attributed to artist Mary B. Tucker was exhibited in Women Only: Folk Art by Female Hands, April 6 to September 12, 2010, at The American Folk Art Museum, New York. The checklist of artists at the exhibition contains updated information regarding this little-known artist: To date, nine watercolor portraits can confdently be attributed to the elusive artist Mary B. Tucker, and eight more are signed with her name and dated between 1840 and 1844. The severe watercolors are primarily bust- or waist-length, with the sitters shown in profle or slightly turned; all are executed on large-format sheets of paper, and none has a room setting or landscape view. A heavy black shading around the heads and necks of the subjects is used in the artists earlier efforts. Later portraits show a more diffused shading over larger areas of the paper. The portraits continued a tradition of large-scale, half-length watercolor portraits that pictured a modest segment of society. Past conjecture about the identity of the artist placed her in Boston and the Concord-Sudbury area of Massachusetts. Recent research suggests she is Meribah Mowry of Douglas, Massachusetts, who married Chilon Tucker of Uxbridge in 1816. No evidence has yet been discovered to describe her relationship to the sitters, though it is possible that she taught painting, as Uxbridge was the site of a prestigious preparatory school. The inclusion of an illustrated primer in two double portraits of children tends to support this thesis.$8,000-12,00053 Online bidding at www.skinnerinc.com212213Polychrome and Gilt Paint- and Stencil-decorated Yellow Tin Tray, late 19th century, the oblong tray with central rectangular reserve stenciled with a fanciful bird amidst fowers on a contrasting black ground, the rest of the tray ornamented with undulating fowering vines against a yellow ground, (minor paint loss), 15 1/4 x 20 1/4 in.$400-600214Dome-top Box with Interior Decoration, America, early 19th century, the box covered with faint diamond pattern on black canvas, trimmed with brass-tack-studded black leather, with brass swing handle and latch, the interior ornamented with compass-drawn foral, circular, and heart designs, with faint ink inscriptions on either end: Foster Feb. ---- 14 Ae 1826/The nightingale doth sweetly sing/to welcome in the cheerful Spring and Though so lovely and so fair a winding sheet we soon must wear, ht. 5 3/4, wd. 10, dp. 6 in.$200-250215Silver Tankard, Jacobus Van der Spiegel, New York City, c. 1700, straight tapered sides on body with applied molded rim and base, with raised circular single-step lid with fat top, crenellated at the front, cast cocoon thumbpiece, fve-segment cast hinge fanked by bands of wigglework, and a band of leaves, hollow C-curved handle with cast mask of a bearded face, the handle with engraved monograms I*M over A*T, and with makers marks S/IV in a trefoil, struck three times on the top of the lid, (imperfections), ht. 6 1/4 in., approx. 27 troy oz.Note: Similar tankards by this maker are in the collections at Yale University Art Gallery, Winterthur, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.$30,000-50,000215American & English Silver216Sterling Silver Kettle on Stand, London, 1737, spherical form kettle on a circular stand, joined by a tripod scrolled foliate burner support with removable circular burner, the kettle with scroll spout, scroll swing handle with mermaid mounts and wooden grip, the body ornamented with chased scroll and foliate rococo borders and two coats of arms in a scroll foliate cartouche, with hinged cover, GS makers mark, London, and date marks under base and burner, (imperfections), overall height with handle upright 14 in., approx. 74 troy oz. total, including handle.$1,000-1,500217Rococo Sterling Silver Salver, John Munns, London, 1754, fat circular tray with raised shaped rim ornamented with blossoms and foliage, raised on three paw feet, the bottom with engraved monogram M*S and impressed makers marks, ht. 1 1/8, dia. 6 7/8 in., approx. 10.5 troy oz.$500-700218Sterling Silver and Turned Wood-handled Sauce Pan, London, 1762, bulbous pot with a spout perpendicular to the turned wooden handle, with the initials SG engraved under the spout, F [pellet] G makers mark, London, and date marks struck on bottom, (dents to bowl, loss and crack to handle), overall ht. 6 in., approx. 12 troy oz. including handle.$400-600219Two Sterling Silver Tablespoons, Paul Revere, Jr., Boston, c. 1800, each with oval bowl and downturned fddle handle with engraved AH monogram and REVERE makers mark, lg. 9 in., approx. 4 troy oz. total.

Proctor, who were married February 15, 1863, while the colonel was on leave from serving in the Union Army during the Civil War. Though orphaned at a young age, Noyes, who was born in Haverhill, Massachusetts, was raised by his grandfather in New Hampshire, where he apprenticed at the age of thirteen to a printer of a religious newspaper, was educated at a Kingston academy, and went on to graduate from Dartmouth College. He moved to Ohio to attend law school in Cincinnati. In the summer of 1861, Noyes helped organize the 39th Ohio Infantry, and was rewarded with a commission as its frst major, and a few months later became the regiments colonel. In July of 1864, during the Atlanta Campaign at a battle at Ruffs Mill, his ankle was severely wounded resulting with the amputation of his left leg. A few months later while still recuperating, he was breveted to the rank of brigadier general. After Noyes resigned the following April he went on to serve as probate judge of Hamilton County, Ohio, a two-year term as Governor from 187274, the Ohio Commissioner of the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia in 1874, and served as Minister to France under president Rutherford B. Hayes, from 187781.$8,000-12,00058 Additional information and photos at www.skinnerinc.com226226detail227227Sterling Silver Presentation Punch Bowl Commemorating the Opening of the F.W. Woolworth Building in New York City in 1913, Tiffany & Co., makers, New York, large, round, footed bowl with notched rim over a band with raised inscription in gold: Presented to Cass Gilbert by Frank W. Woolworth as a Mark of Appreciation at the Formal Opening of the Woolworth Building on the 24th of April 1913, over a border of alternating large and small pendant trefoils intercepted with a shield-shaped reserve with the raised gold monogram CG and ornamented with scrolled anthemion leaves, the bowl interior is centered with a chased depiction of the F.W. Woolworth building in its setting with surrounding buildings and trees, all supported on a round molded base, impressed makers marks on base, ht. 9 5/8, dia. 17 in., approx. 222 troy oz.; accompanying the bowl is a book produced as a record and souvenir of the gala held to open the Woolworth Building on April 24, 1913; among the records included therein are transcripts of remarks made by Woolworth and Gilbert, complete guest lists, menus, and portraits of fgures involved with the buildings construction; it is enclosed in a custom-made clamshell box. Note: Few pieces of design excited the early modern American imagination like Cass Gilberts skyscraper for F.W. Woolworth. Built in Manhattan as the tallest building in the world (792 feet tall), it literally pushed to new heights the frontiers of modern engineering and design. Referring to Woolworths success as a fve-and-dime magnate, the New York Times would later call the building the skyscraper built by the nickels of millions. The 20th century archetype for the American Dream started his frst shop with a few borrowed and saved dollars; by the time he commissioned Gilbert to design his corporate headquarters, he was personally worth many millions. Fittingly, the Woolworth Building has often been called a Cathedral of Commerce, and its design represented a uniquely American combination: Old World Gothic fnery adorning a New World engineering marvel. When its doors offcially opened and the electric lights were turned on by President Wilson on April 25, 1913, the Woolworth Building hosted a legendary dinner, a grand affair which culminated in F.W. Woolworths presentation of this sterling silver punch bowl to his lauded architect, Cass Gilbert. If the Woolworth building was the brash celebration of the Woolworth fortune, the Cass Gilbert presentation bowl was its genteel prcis. It distilled the soaring exuberance of the worlds tallest skyscraper into an elegant statement of superlative design. In its arrangement and execution, the artists of Tiffany & Co. summarized Cass Gilberts architectural opus by isolating elements of neo-Gothic ornament for the bowls rim, combining delicate detail with the clean, modern lines of the bowls silhouette and surface. Inside, an engraved image of the Woolworth building appears on the bottom of the bowl, transforming the scale of the monumental structure into an image with the delicacy of a portrait miniature. $30,000-50,00061 Online bidding at www.skinnerinc.comThe Cass Gilbert Dinner, photo credit: James Cummins Bookseller and Darren Winston, Bookseller62 Additional information and photos at www.skinnerinc.comThe China Trade228China Trade School, 1830-1835The Waterfront Hongs at Canton, China.

Watercolor on ivory, 3 x 2 1/2 in., mounted together in a hinged thermoplastic case. Condition: The ivory plaque the gentleman is painted on is bowed on right and left sides. Literature: According to a privately printed 1908 genealogy, The Family of Rev. John Butler, by Charles Bowdoin Fillebrown, the artist Esteria Butler, and the female subject portrayed, Almira Butler Fillebrown, were two of fourteen children of the Rev. John Butler (1789-1856) and his wife Nancy (nee Payne, 1788-1857). The Reverend was the frst ordained pastor at the Baptist church in Hanover, Massachusetts, in 1810, and served there until 1824, when the family moved to Waterville, Maine, where Reverend Butler was installed as the frst pastor at the Baptist church at East Winthrop, Maine, in 1825. It was there that he established a school for young ladies. The Butler daughters attended the school, and Esteria excelled in painting on ivory. She painted portrait miniatures of herself and most of the members of her family, many of them portrayed in the book Reminiscences of East Winthrop, by William Harrison Parlin, including the pair offered here.On August 15, 1837, Esteria married Professor Jonathan Everett Farnam, LL.D., in Waterville, Maine, where he was a tutor at Waterville (later Colby) College. In 1839 he became a member of the faculty of Georgetown College, Georgetown, Kentucky, where some years later he established a seminary for young ladies. Esteria shared with her husband the charge over the young ladies, teaching drawing and painting. The couple had three daughters. Esteria died December 23, 1891, at the age of 77 and was buried at Georgetown.$3,000-5,00070 Additional information and photos at www.skinnerinc.com253256American School, 19th CenturyPortrait Miniature of a Little Girl with Her Pet Bird.

Provenance: It is reported by the consignor that the ring descended in her family from the early part of the 20th century. Originally, a lock of hair was given by George Washington as a token of esteem to his aide-de-camp Alexander Hamilton. It descended to Hamiltons son James A. Hamilton. In 1872, James gave the lock of hair to Mrs. Margaret (Cash) Pechin (1812-1911) of Philadelphia, where it was lent or gifted by her to the Washington Memorial Chapel at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Upon Mrs. Pechins death, the ring was returned to her family, and descended through Dupont and Moreland families, and lastly to the consignor, Mrs. Margaret Pechins great-great niece. At some point the lock of hair was incorporated into a memorial ring. The ring is accompanied by a small undated c. 1900 newspaper clipping announcing the gift of the lock of Washingtons hair by Mrs. Pechin. An internet search for Mrs. Margaret Pechin of Philadelphia brings up several similar articles about her donation of the lock of hair to the Washington Memorial Chapel.$800-1,200105 Online bidding at www.skinnerinc.com349348350Six Pieces of Mourning Jewelry, late 18th/early 19th century, decorated with neoclassical fgures and symbolism, two brooches with ellipse-shaped, sepia-decorated ivory plaques, with bright-cut gilt-brass surrounds, one depicting a woman grieving beside a lamb and an urn-topped monument inscribed GRATITUDE, the other depicting a young woman at her spinning wheel seated beside a young man; a ring with an ellipse-shaped ivory plaque with grisaille depiction of a woman grieving beside an urn-topped monument with indistinct inscription SALLY SWE-T OCTOBER 13, in a hinged leather case; an oval ivory plaque depicting fve young ladies wearing white gowns under the inscription AFFECTION UNITE US, in a faceted, bright-cut, gilt-brass bracelet mount with black velvet ribbon; an ellipse-shaped ivory plaque with grisaille decoration depicting a woman holding a cornucopia, with paste surround and gilt-brass bracelet mount converted to a pendant; and an oval gilt-brass hinged pendant containing an ivory plaque with watercolor painted scene of a woman seated on a hill offering her hand to a descending dove with a crane (the symbol of long life and immortality) standing beside her, (imperfections), dia. 1 to 2 5/8 in.$1,500-2,500351Mayfower Descendant Commemorative 14kt Gold Medal in Original Case, retailed by J.E.
