DECORATED CHEST OF DRAWERS.

Lot 1: DECORATED CHEST OF DRAWERS.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: DECORATED CHEST OF DRAWERS. Marked for Jeremiah Stahl, Soap Hollow, Somerset County, Pennsylvania, dated 1864, poplar. Of typical form with three bowed drawers over four graduated drawers, scrolled backsplash, and resting on turned feet. Retains its original painted decoration including stenciled birds and flowers on a red ground, the side panels initialed "SL" and dated "1864". Imperfections. 53 1/2"h. 40 1/2"w. 20 1/4"d. For a similarly decorated example, see Muller, Soap Hollow: The Furniture and Its Makers, p. 40. The present example appears to be the earliest dated piece of furniture signed by Stahl and may have, according to Muller, been made by Stahl while in partnership with Peter K. Thomas. The two men served together in the Civil War and this chest was made between their tours of duty, during which time, according to an affidavit by Stahl, they worked together (see Muller, p. 41).

Condition Report: Wear and some losses to paint, backsplash attached with later screws, cat scratches to right stile, replaced pulls, 3.25 of the escutcheon inlays are missing. The varnish has darkened and has crazed in some places, but the paint appears largely intact under the varnish. Regarding the shipping of firearms and or weapons: please be aware that many restrictions apply to the international shipment of firearms, antique or otherwise. Your winning bid will not be canceled, rescinded, or retracted due to an international shipping limitation. It is your responsibility to resolve shipping issues PRIOR to bidding in this (or any other) auction.

DECORATED BLANKET CHEST.

Lot 2: DECORATED BLANKET CHEST.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: DECORATED BLANKET CHEST. Soap Hollow, Somerset County, Pennsylvania, dated 1871, pine. Dovetailed box resting on bracket feet. Retains its original painted decoration, including stenciled flowers on a red ground. Initialed "JB" and dated "1871." Imperfections. 21"h. 37 3/4"w. 19"d. The present chest is nearly identical to the "DB/1872" chest illustrated in Muller, Soap Hollow: The Furniture and Its Makers, p. 66. The wreath at center is similar to the wreaths used by Jeremiah Stahl (see Muller, p. 40), thus he is a good candidate for the maker. Given the similar form and decoration and the same second initial, it would seem possible that this chest and the chest in Muller are from the same family.

Condition Report: Some paint wear and loss; the varnish has darkened, back feet have nailed repairs; lid molding is an older replacement and the base molding was re-colored black at that time (traces of green are eviden on the inside of the lid and in the worn areas of the base). Regarding the shipping of firearms and or weapons: please be aware that many restrictions apply to the international shipment of firearms, antique or otherwise. Your winning bid will not be canceled, rescinded, or retracted due to an international shipping limitation. It is your responsibility to resolve shipping issues PRIOR to bidding in this (or any other) auction.

DECORATED BLANKET CHEST.

Lot 13: DECORATED BLANKET CHEST.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: DECORATED BLANKET CHEST. Ohio, mid 19th century, poplar. Paneled construction, interior till and resting on turned feet. Retains its original paint decoration, consisting of vases of tulips in all of the panels, against a ground of red, green, and cream, with a grungy surface. Imperfections. 28"h. 47 1/4"w. 21 1/2"d. This chest was undoubtedly decorated by the same hand as a small group of chests, two of which are illustrated in Hageman, Ohio Furniture Makers 1790-1860 (pp. 27 and 40). Most of this group are of the same tri-paneled construction, and all have nearly identical vases of tulips. This group has traditionally been associated with the Long family of Ada, Allen County, Ohio, however the present chest has a history of ownership in the Holmes-Harrison-Coshocton County area. It descended in the family of Lemon Joseph Ames (1903-1958) and was probably originally owned by either his paternal grandparents, Henry and Malinda Ames, or his maternal grandparents, Daniel and Elizabeth Levengood. Henry and Malinda were both born and then married in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania, and moved to German Township, Harrison County, Ohio, while Daniel was born in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, and moved to Berlin Township, Holmes County where he married Elizabeth. Their children, James Ames and Ella Leavengood, married and settled in Coshocton County where Lemon Joseph was born.

Condition Report: Refinished top, reinforced crack to right lid molding, minor paint wear and loss, paint obscured by thick, grungy varnish, but appears to be largely intact, later nail holes in the front lid molding. Printed genealogical material is included with this lot.

RARE DOUBLE PORTRAIT OF ALFRED AND JAMES J. COLLINS BY MILTON W. HOPKINS (CONNECTICUT/NEW YORK/OHIO, 1789-1844).

Lot 16: RARE DOUBLE PORTRAIT OF ALFRED AND JAMES J. COLLINS BY MILTON W. HOPKINS (CONNECTICUT/NEW YORK/OHIO, 1789-1844).

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: RARE DOUBLE PORTRAIT OF ALFRED AND JAMES J. COLLINS BY MILTON W. HOPKINS (CONNECTICUT/NEW YORK/OHIO, 1789-1844). Oil on canvas, signed on the back. The two sons of the Collins family, identified on the back with their ages of six and four in 1842. The boys hold a small whip and the pet dog. Conservation report available. 25 1/4"h. 30"w., in its original gilt frame, 29 1/2"h. 35 1/2"w. Ex Sumpter Priddy III (Virginia). Milton W. Hopkins and the Collins Family The Connecticut-born artist Milton W. Hopkins (1789-1844) spent most of his life in Connecticut and New York. He began his career as a portraitist in earnest when he advertised himself as a portrait painter and instructor in Albion, New York in 1833. In 1836, Hopkins packed up his wife and ten children and headed west to Ohio, settling in Clermont County. Though he never sold the Clermont County farm (he would die there in 1844), he would later set up a studio in Columbus (1840-1843) and then in Cincinnati (1843-1844). Based on identified portraits, Hopkins clearly traveled throughout the region for commissions. Hopkins was a fervent anti-Mason and temperance advocate, and according to research by Jacquelyn Oak, it may have been his growing abolitionist sentiment that drove him to Ohio. She further postulates that it is through his anti-slavery efforts that Hopkins met fellow abolitionist and lawyer James Collins, Jr. while in Clermont County. Collins (b. 1802 or 1803), a lawyer, married Angelina (apparently sometimes called Margaret) in 1830 and had four children. Documenting their location(s) is somewhat challenging, but Oak's research places them in Clermont County during Hopkins's residency, and later in Illinois (always as an active member of the abolition movement). As an attorney, Collins may well have spent time in Columbus (perhaps visiting Hopkins in his studio, which was very near the Ohio Statehouse). The 1850 Federal Census locates the Collins family in New Albany, Indiana, along the Ohio River (and in their household was an African-American girl named Anne Robertson). Hopkins painted portraits Mr. and Mrs. Collins and of their sons Alfred and James in 1842. The portrait of the younger child was painted by another artist after Hopkins's death. All of the present portraits remained together and were "discovered" in a Missouri attic years ago. These portraits are among the few identified examples from Hopkins's Midwestern period, a fact made more important because of the shared abolitionist efforts of both artist and sitter. Additionally, the double portrait of James and Alfred is the only known double portrait by Hopkins. In short, this family group of portraits should be considered among the most significant Midwestern portraits of the 1840s period. References: Face to Face: M.W. Hopkins and Noah North, 1988 Joy-Dyer, Cornelia C., Some Records of the Dyer Family, 1884 Williams, Byron, History of Clermont and Brown Counties, Ohio, 1913.

Condition Report: Complete conservation report available, including before and after photos. Conservation performed by Richmond Conservation Studio (Virginia) in 1996. Addtional information is included with the lot. For a Hopkins portrait with a similar dog, see Sotheby's (New York), January 2004, lot 32.

Lot 17: PORTRAIT OF A COLLINS FAMILY CHILD (OHIO, MID 19TH CENTURY).

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: PORTRAIT OF A COLLINS FAMILY CHILD (OHIO, MID 19TH CENTURY). Oil on canvas, unsigned. Charming portrait of a young child seated on a blanket. Conservation report available. 30"h. 25"w., in its original gilt frame, 35"h. 30"w. Ex Sumpter Priddy III (Virginia) Given the birth date and age of the child, this charming portrait was painted after the death of Milton W. Hopkins (1789-1844), but was framed identically to the other Collins family portraits. Milton W. Hopkins and the Collins Family The Connecticut-born artist Milton W. Hopkins (1789-1844) spent most of his life in Connecticut and New York. He began his career as a portraitist in earnest when he advertised himself as a portrait painter and instructor in Albion, New York in 1833. In 1836, Hopkins packed up his wife and ten children and headed west to Ohio, settling in Clermont County. Though he never sold the Clermont County farm (he would die there in 1844), he would later set up a studio in Columbus (1840-1843) and then in Cincinnati (1843-1844). Based on identified portraits, Hopkins clearly traveled throughout the region for commissions. Hopkins was a fervent anti-Mason and temperance advocate, and according to research by Jacquelyn Oak, it may have been his growing abolitionist sentiment that drove him to Ohio. She further postulates that it is through his anti-slavery efforts that Hopkins met fellow abolitionist and lawyer James Collins, Jr. while in Clermont County. Collins (b. 1802 or 1803), a lawyer, married Angelina (apparently sometimes called Margaret) in 1830 and had four children. Documenting their location(s) is somewhat challenging, but Oak's research places them in Clermont County during Hopkins's residency, and later in Illinois (always as an active member of the abolition movement). As an attorney, Collins may well have spent time in Columbus (perhaps visiting Hopkins in his studio, which was very near the Ohio Statehouse). The 1850 Federal Census locates the Collins family in New Albany, Indiana, along the Ohio River (and in their household was an African-American girl named Anne Robertson). Hopkins painted portraits Mr. and Mrs. Collins and of their sons Alfred and James in 1842. The portrait of the younger child was painted by another artist after Hopkins's death. All of the present portraits remained together and were "discovered" in a Missouri attic years ago. These portraits are among the few identified examples from Hopkins's Midwestern period, a fact made more important because of the shared abolitionist efforts of both artist and sitter. Additionally, the double portrait of James and Alfred is the only known double portrait by Hopkins. In short, this family group of portraits should be considered among the most significant Midwestern portraits of the 1840s period. References: Face to Face: M.W. Hopkins and Noah North, 1988 Joy-Dyer, Cornelia C., Some Records of the Dyer Family, 1884 Williams, Byron, History of Clermont and Brown Counties, Ohio, 1913.
