Estimated Price: $600 - $900

Description: Form: Tea SetMakers Mark: Frank W. Smith Silver Co.Country of Origin: United StatesOther Marks 3607Decoration: The tray on which these cups and saucers are served displays a leaf-design. The center of the tray is pushed inward, molded to form the veins of a broad leaf. The lip of the tray has been sectioned to form petal-like patterns. The cups come paired with saucers, a single baby's cup is included as well, and a sugar bowl and creamer join them.Style: Early 20th C.Construction: Cast SilverPeriod: C. 1900Provenance: New Jersey EstateSize: H. 4.0x W. 17.0x D. 12.0"Weight: 3.8lbsCondition: No damage has been done to this tea set, no dings or dents. Meta: silver, tea, floraHistory: In 1887 Frank W. Smith began manufacturing silverware in Gardner and within a few years the Frank W. Smith Silver Company had one of the finest equipped factories in the country for the manufacture of high grade sterling silverware, both by machine and by hand. The company continued operations until 1958. However, during the course of its history the company's silver services became the possession of notable individuals such as Princess Grace of Monaco and Queen Elizabeth of England. Also, Smith silver groupings were purchased, on occasion, for United States naval vessels, gifts from the states or communities for which they were named.One of the superintendents and designers for the Smith Silver Company was Arthur J. Stone who was hired in 1887. In 1901 Stone started his own silver shop in Gardner which at one point would employ twelve apprentices and craftsmen. That same year he joined the Arts and Crafts Society of Boston. At a time when manufactured silver was reflecting the ornate designs of the Victorian Age, this organization advocated a return to simpler forms.Arthur Stone remained in business for thirty-six years, during which time he became known as "The Dean of American Silversmiths." His works included hand wrought silver products such as toys, bowls, trophies, tankards, tea sets, table silver in all forms, altar sets for churches and often ecclesiastical pieces. A gold monstrance for the Church of the Advent in Boston is a fine example of this craftsmanship. Today, beyond private ownership, Arthur Stone's workmanship can be found in New York City's Metropolitan Museum and the Worcester Museum of Fine Arts among many public institutions.After 36 years the shop was purchased by Henry E. Heywood who called the company Stone Associates and continued with the same craftsmen until 1957 when the shop closed.

Miss America Wind-up Speedboat w/ Stand, 1920s

Lot 315: Miss America Wind-up Speedboat w/ Stand, 1920s

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $200 - $400

Description: Miss America SpeedboatAge: 1920sMaterials: Wood, BrassMarks: "Miss America"Country of Origin: United StatesDescription: This antique model speedboat is made of mahogany with brass fittings. It still has the original "Miss America" stickers on the hull as well as the remnants of gilding on the brass chair, wheel, propeller, and rudder. The rudder moves by manipulating the wheel, but the key that winds up the propeller no longer makes it spin when wound. The stand upon which it rests is laminated and holds the model speedboat up on board whose pegs fit perfectly into the base.Size: H. 4.0x W. 15.0x D. 3.5"Weight: 2.6lbs w/standProvenance: New Hampshire EstateCondition: Though the brass has patinated heavily, the original gilding is mostly intact and there is only minor chipping along the starboard side of the boat.History: Working on engines and boats was the joy of Gar Wood's life. He designed many boats, each more powerful than the last. The hydraulic hoist, which helps a boat turn or back up, was the first of Wood's many inventions and patents which helped make him a multi-millionaire by the time he was 40. He was the first man to design a hull strong enough to handle multiple airplane motors and make world-record speeds while remaining maneuverable.In 1920, he took his Miss America I speedboat to England to compete for the coveted Harmsworth Trophy -- roughly equivalent today to the America's Cup as an international racing spectacle. Wood won. Detroit's downtown streets were jammed from Belle Isle to Randolph as the crowd awaited his return by seaplane. In America, Gar Wood's name had become as famous as Ty Cobb's.Other Miss Americas stood up to challenges from England and France as Wood successfully defended the Harmsworth eight times.In 1931, Miss America IX became the first boat to reach 100 mph, topping out at 102.256 mph. That year saw the most dramatic of all the Harmsworth races, with England's Kaye Don the chief opponent, his Miss England II powered by a Rolls-Royce motor from the British Air Ministry.

Etching, Laurel and Hardy, Hirschfeld

Lot 356: Etching, Laurel and Hardy, Hirschfeld

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $250 - $500

Description: Medium: EtchingSupport: CardboardArtist: Al HirschfeldArtist Dates: 1903 - 2003Country of Origin: AmericaTitle & Description: "Laurel and Hardy"This etching displays the caricatures of two Hollywood comedians, Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy. Laurel and Hardy were a comedy double act during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of thin Englishman, Stan Laurel (1890-1965) and heavyset American, Oliver Hardy (1892-1957). They became well known during the late 1920s through the mid-1940s for their slapstick comedy with Laurel playing the clumsy and childlike friend of the pompous Hardy.Signature: HIRSCHFELDDate of Work: 20th CenturyFrame: Steel framed glassWork Size: 17.5x11.5"Frame Size: 22.5x15.5"Weight: 4.4lbsProvenance: New Jersey EstateCondition: Minor spotting in the caps of the two comedians. Otherwise well kept, pencil signature and "95/150" written below the picture in pencil.Meta: Caricature, cartoonArtist Biography: Al Hirschfeld's drawings stand as one of the most innovative efforts in establishing the visual language of modern art through caricature in the 20th century. A self described "characterist," his signature work, defined by a linear calligraphic style, appeared in virtually every major publication of the last nine decades (including a 75 year relationship with The New York Times) as well as numerous book and record covers and 15 postage stamps.Hirschfeld said his contribution was to take the character, created by the playwright and portrayed by the actor, and reinvent it for the reader. Playwright Terrence McNally wrote: "No one 'writes' more accurately of the performing arts than Al Hirschfeld. He accomplishes on a blank page with his pen and ink in a few strokes what many of us need a lifetime of words to say."He is represented in many public collections, including the Metropolitan, the Whitney, the National Portrait Gallery, and Harvard's Theater Collection. Hirschfeld authored several books including Manhattan Oases and Show Business is No Business in addition to 10 collections of his work. He was declared a Living Landmark by the New York City Landmarks Commission in 1996 and a Living Legend by the Library of Congress in 2000.Just before his death in January 2003, he learned he was to be awarded the Medal of Arts from the National Endowment of the Arts and inducted into the Academy of Arts and Letters. The winner of two Tony Awards, he was be given the ultimate Broadway accolade on what would have been his 100th birthday in June 2003. The Martin Beck Theater was renamed the Al Hirschfeld Theater.

Lot 414: O/CB "Female Archer" by Margaret Fitzhugh Browne

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

August 9, 2014, 12:00 PM EST

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $25 - $50

Description: Medium: OilSupport: Canvas BoardArtist: Margaret Fitzhugh BrowneArtist Dates: (1884 - 1972)Country of Origin: United States of AmericaTitle & Description: Painting depicts a youthful woman with a long bow and arrows.Signature: Signed lower leftFrame: PeriodWork Size: 12" H x 10" WFrame Size: 16" H x 14" W x 1.5" DWeight: 2 poundsCondition: Loss in upper right corner approximately 2.5" L x 0.25" W Meta: painting, artArtist Biography: Margaret Fitzhugh Browne was a painter of portraits, indoor genre scenes, and still lifes. She was born in Boston, Massachusetts on June 7, 1884. Browne studied at the Massachusetts Normal School from 1904 to 1909, and one of her teachers was the popular artist Joseph DeCamp. She attended the Boston Museum School in 1909 and 1910, receiving instruction from Edmund Tarbell and Frank Benson. During this period she also received private instruction from the color theorist Albert Munsell and from Richard Andrew. Her career included all aspects of the art world. In addition to painting, she taught classes at Annisquam, MA, was the art editor of the "Boston Evening Transcript" in 1919-20, and authored a book "Portrait Painting" in 1933. She served on the Advisory Board of Josephine Logan's Chicago based Society for Sanity in Art, an organization that promoted the retention of traditional values and styles in art. Her success as an artist was assured, as she became known for her fine portraits, indoor genres, and colorful still lifes. She worked in all media and was known for her broad use of color. Among her portraits are: Henry A. Wise Wood and Mrs. Wood of New York and the North Shore; Michael Driscoll, Mrs. George L. Huntress, a portrait notable for its sense of line; Senator Borah, Miss Eleanor Satterlee, Edmund D. Cook, Jr., with blue, gray, and deep brown combined in a smoothly finished surface; Miss Mary Hickey and Airedale, Gamecock Rover, Mrs. Gardiner Aspinwall, and Bobby Jones, commissioned by the City of Atlanta.Browne excelled in figure subjects with a theme. The Springfield, Illinois, Art Association purchased one such theme painting, "The Chess Player." In "The Art Students," a boy and girl are studying a painting at an exhibition. Browne injects a great deal of feeling into a simple design, and demonstrates a flair for the human and pictorial qualities in her portraits. She was known to reduce her portrait subject to the simplest planes, attempting to attain a degree of force without crudeness, as in "The Old Farmer's Almanac." In this picture a country man in shirt sleeves reads by a lamp in the comfort of a kitchen. Her model for the work was a farmer who lived near her summer studio in Annisquam, an attractive part of Gloucester, Massachusetts.In 1927, the young and attractive Browne won a commission to go to Europe to paint the King of Spain for the New York Yacht Club. A yachtswoman herself, Margaret Fitzhugh Browne enjoyed the experience immensely, and that painting of Alfonso XIII is one of her finest works.Browne was a member of most professional artist's groups of her time including the Guild of Boston Artists, Copley Society, Rockport Art Association and at least 14 others. Her works were included in the exhibitions of most of these organizations and at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and the Art Institute of Chicago. She was the recipient of many awards. Solo exhibitions of her work were held in Boston in 1915,1917,1926,1938 and 1957. Other one person shows were held in Duxbury, CT in 1916, New York City in 1924, Washington, DC in 1930, portraits at the Boston Art Club in 1936, and at the Newport Art Association in 1950. Margaret Browne died in Boston in 1972 at the age of 87. In 1974 the Copley Society held a "Memorial Exhibition of Flower Compositions and a Few Portraits by Margaret Fitzhugh Browne."

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $10 - $100

Description: Age: 1926Size: 8 x 10"Weight: 1 ounceMaker: Acme News PicturesFrame/Mat Size: N/AProvenance: MA. estateDescription: Two images of the first race of the fishing schooners 'Columbia' and 'Henry Ford' on October 14, 1926 off Gloucester, Massachusetts. Captains were Ben Pine and Clayton MorrisseyCondition: Toning, corners bumped.History: The GLOUCESTER SCHOONER FESTIVAL is the annual commemoration of the significance of the classic fishing schoonerto the history of Gloucester, the oldest fishing port on the East Coast. For three days, the City's harbor hosts a uniquemix of old and new, as modern day fishermen share their home port with the traditional vessels of an earlier era.The GLOUCESTER SCHOONER FESTIVAL is organized by the Gloucester Schooner Festival Committee with the support ofMaritime Gloucester, the City of Gloucester, the U.S. Coast Guard, and numerous corporate sponsors.The town was an important shipbuilding center, and the first schooner was reputedly built there in 1713. The community developed into an important fishing port, largely due to its proximity to Georges Bank and other fishing banks off the east coast of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Gloucester's most famous (and nationally recognized) seafood business was founded in 1849 as John Pew & Sons. It became Gorton-Pew Fisheries in 1906, and in 1957 changed its name to Gorton's of Gloucester. The iconic image of the "Gorton's Fisherman", and the products he represents, are known throughout the country and beyond. Besides catching and processing seafood, Gloucester is also a center for fish research.In the late 19th century Gloucester saw an influx of Portuguese and Italian immigrants seeking work in the town's flourishing fishing industry and a better life in America. Some present-day fishermen of Gloucester are descendents of these early immigrants. The strong Portuguese and Italian influence is evident in the many festivals celebrated throughout the year. During the Catholic celebration, St Peter's Fiesta, relatives of fishermen past and present carry oars representing many of the fishing vessels which call Gloucester their home. Saint Peter is the patron saint of the fishermen.Seafaring and fishing have been, and still are, very dangerous undertakings. In its over 350-year history, Gloucester has lost over 10,000 men to the Atlantic Ocean. The names of each of the known lost are painted on a huge mural in the main staircase at City Hall, and also on a new memorial cenotaph on Stacy Boulevard. The list has continued to lengthen despite increased safety requirements.

by Metropolitan Auction

Coram, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $3,500

Description: Chinese philosopher, essayist and diplomat HuShih Boxwood wooden statue, PROVENANCE: Mr. Smith, Washington DC. Biography Hu Shih (17 December 1891¨C24 February 1962), was a Chinese philosopher, essayist and diplomat. Hu is widely recognized today as a key contributor to Chinese liberalism and language reform in his advocacy for the use of written vernacular Chinese. He was influential in the May Fourth Movement, one of the leaders of China's New Culture Movement, was a president of Peking University, and in 1939 was nominated for a Nobel Prize in literature.He had a wide range of interests such as literature, history, textual criticism, and pedagogy. He was also an influential redology scholar and held the famous Jiaxu manuscript for many years until his death. Hu was born in Shanghai to Hu Chuan His ancestors were from Jixi, Anhui. In January 1904, his family established an arranged marriage for Hu with Chiang Tung-hsiu, an illiterate girl with bound feet who was one year older than he was. The marriage took place in December 1917. Hu received his fundamental education in Jixi and Shanghai. Hu became a "national scholar" through funds appropriated from the Boxer Indemnity Scholarship Program. On 16 August 1910, he was sent to study agriculture at Cornell University in the United States. In 1912 he changed his major to philosophy and literature. After receiving his undergraduate degree, he went to Columbia University to study philosophy. At Columbia he was greatly influenced by his professor, John Dewey, and Hu became Dewey's translator and a lifelong advocate of pragmatic evolutionary change, helping Dewey in his 1919-1921 lectures series in China. He returned to lecture in Peking University. During his tenure there, he received support from Chen Duxiu, editor of the influential journal New Youth, quickly gaining much attention and influence. Hu soon became one of the leading and influential intellectuals during the May Fourth Movement and later the New Culture Movement. He quit New Youth in the 1920s and published several political newspapers and journals with his friends. His most important contribution was the promotion of vernacular Chinese in literature to replace Classical Chinese, which ideally made it easier for the ordinary person to read. The significance of this for Chinese culture was great¡ªas John Fairbank put it, "the tyranny of the classics had been broken".[4] Hu devoted a great deal of energy, however, to rooting his linguistic reforms in China's traditional culture rather than relying on imports from the west. As his biographer Jerome Grieder put it, Hu's approach to China's "distinctive civilization" was "thoroughly critical but by no means contemptuous." For instance, he made a major contribution to the textual study of the Chinese classical novel, especially the 18th century novel Dream of the Red Chamber, as a way of establishing the vocabulary for a modern standardized language. Hu Shih's tombstone in the park named after him, near Academia Sinica in Taiwan Hu was the Republic of China's ambassador to the United States of America between 1938 and 1942. He was recalled in September 1942 and was replaced by Wei Tao-ming. Hu then served as chancellor of Peking University between 1946 and 1948, and later (1957) president of the Academia Sinica in Taipei, where he remained until his death. He was also chief executive of the Free China Journal, which was eventually shut down for criticizing Chiang Kai-shek. He died of a heart attack in Nankang, Taipei at the age of 70, and is buried in a tomb in Hu Shih Park, by the Academia Sinica campus. Hu Shih's work fell into disrepute in mainland China until a 1986 article, written by Ji Xianlin, "A Few Words for Hu Shi", advocated acknowledging not only Hu Shih's mistakes, but also his contributions to modern Chinese literature. His article was sufficiently convincing to many scholars that it caused a re-evaluation of the development of modern Chinese literature and the role of Hu Shih.

Description: Age: C. 1970Size: H.27.0x W.10.0x D.1.25"Weight: 1lbs 13ozMaker: DunlopMaterials: Laminated woodProvenance: Connecticut EstateDescription: This vintage tennis racket has with it the original frame designed to protect the head. Along the finished length are the labels of the company as well as beautiful design work.Condition: One band of ornamental tape is missing from the head of the racket, and the netting shows some age-related discoloration.Meta: Sport, RecreationHistory: Dunlop was established as a company manufacturing goods from rubber in 1889. Dunlop entered the sporting goods market in 1910, when it began to manufacture rubber golf balls at its base in Birmingham. The company used scientific methods to ensure consistent ball weights, sizes and markings. When the company introduced the Maxfli golf ball in 1922, demand soon outstripped supply. Until the early 1920s, the company's sporting goods manufacture was almost entirely confined to golf balls. In 1924, the company began to manufacture tennis balls. In 1925, F A Davis was acquired, which had tennis racket manufacturing expertise. Dunlop opened acquisition discussions with Slazenger in 1927, but without success. A separate company, Dunlop Sports, was formed in 1928. Headquarters were relocated from Birmingham to Waltham Abbey in Essex.The Dunlop Masters golf tournament was established in 1946. It was sponsored by Dunlop until 1982, and is now known as the British Masters.In 1957 Dunlop acquired the golf club manufacturer John Letters of Scotland. In 1959 the Slazenger Group was acquired. The Dunlop "flying D" logo was introduced in 1960.In the 1970s and 1980s, Dunlop was slow to adapt to the new materials that tennis rackets were increasingly being made from, believing that wood would remain the dominant material.In 1983 the John Letters golf club business was sold back to members of the Letters family.In 1984 the sports businesses were merged to form Dunlop Slazenger.In 1986, the parent company, Dunlop Holdings, was acquired by the industrial company BTR for £549 million. BTR cut marketing spend to just 8 per cent of sales and reduced investment in grass roots sponsorship and research and development. Steffi Graf's sponsorship money was cut so she defected to a Wilson racket.In 1996 Dunlop Slazenger was acquired by the private equity firm Cinven for £330 million. To save money, Cinven moved production of Dunlop tennis balls from England to the Philippines. Slazenger Golf and Maxfli were sold off to reduce debt.Sports Direct International bought Dunlop Slazenger for £40 million in 2004.

Fishkill, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $50 - $100

Description: Truck w/Ferris WheelMaker: Nomura ToysMaterials: Tin, rubberConstruction: TinplatingLabels/Tags: T.N.Age: 1957Description: This toy truck is accompanied by a ferris wheel affixed to its bed. When in motion, the back, right tire spins the wheel. Upon making a full rotation, a bell sounds. The primary colors used are red, yellow, and blue, with white used for outlining.Size: H. 5.5x W. 8.25x D. 2.75"Provenance: NJ EstateWeight: 8.3ozCondition: The bell and wheels are functional as of cataloguing. There is some minor paint damage and dulling of the pain, but is in otherwise excellent condition with all original parts.History: It goes without saying that if there were no World War II, there would have been no anime series called Space Battleship Yamato. But it should also be pointed out that if not for very specific shifts in global commerce after World War II, the first line of Yamato toys would not have been made by a company called Nomura. And that takes some explaining.Prior to the war, tin was the material of choice for most of the world's toys. Cheap and malleable, it was easy to bend and form into whimsical shapes that would paradoxically be durable enough to take the usual punishment a kid would dish out. And if you had a tin toy back then, the raw materials probably came from Nuremberg, Germany: the global nerve center of the tinplate trade. After the war, Germany lost its grip on this trade (along with much else) and it floated around the globe to land on the one other nation that could most benefit from it: Japan.Under the American occupation from 1945 to '52, a host of new companies with names like Marusan and Bandai eagerly sprung up to become the new suppliers of tin toys to the rest of the world. (Ironically, many of these toys would romanticize the very military machinery that had brought Japan to heel, but that's another story entirely.) "Made in Japan" would become a famous catchphrase during these years, first in the pejorative sense and then slowly, grudgingly, a sign of quality as things improved. And on some of the best toys, that phrase was accompanied by the initials T.N: the callsign for Toys Nomura.

It is primarily red with white, orange, yellow, and blue.

Co." was founded in Pittsburgh in 1903, by Benjamin F. Bain. Incorporated as a company in 1906, Wolverine designed and manufactured household utensils and broom holders, as well as the tools and dies to make them. Their original headquarters was in the Phipps Power Building near Stanwix Street & Duquesne Boulevard in downtown Pittsburgh. Here Benjamin Bain discovered the opportunity to get into the toy manufacturing business. In 1913, needing more room for Wolverine, Bain purchased the property on Fontella Street between Page and Western Avenues in Manchester. He constructed a large 3-story toy factory on the site, and lived on the property as well.Here he expanded on his line of sturdy sand-operated mechanical tin (or pressed steel) construction-type boy's toys that would eventually be sold in major department and toy stores across the United States. The manufacture of these pressed steel mechanical toys provided employment for many Northsiders over the years, with the work force at Wolverine swelling to over 450 around September each year, as they geared up for the holiday season. Wolverine's original toys were all sand-operated, followed by the addition of marble power (both aggie & steel balls.) Eventually he added vehicles such as trains, streetcars, boats, trucks and cars that were all powered by a unique patented spring powered motor. Within a few years Wolverine developed various tin game boards, both manual and mechanical, as well as branching out into "Girl Toys" like stoves, refrigerators, sinks, cupboards, washing machines and furniture. These toys trace the history of vehicle and appliance design over the years.Wolverine ToysWolverine ToysWolverine Toys The toy factory was enlarged twice over the years, and the building still stands. Remnants of the proud "Wolverine Supply & Mfg. Co." name and the large word "TOYS" are still visible on the building.By the early 1950's Bain's company developed educational toys, and in 1962 changed their name to "Wolverine Toy Company." Spang Industries of Butler, PA purchased Wolverine in 1968, and in 1971 moved all operations to Booneville, Arkansas. In 1986 the name of this line of still-popular toys was changed to "Today's Kids."
