DECORATED OHIO MINIATURE CHEST OF DRAWERS.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

Estimated Price: $400 - $800

Description: DECORATED OHIO MINIATURE CHEST OF DRAWERS. Carroll or Harrison County, Ohio, ca. 1830, curly maple and poplar. Rolled drawer over three graduated drawers, all flanked by half columns with gold stencil-decoration on a black ground, and turned feet. 27.5"h. 24.5"w. 11"d. In the top drawer is a presentation note, "Presented to Misses Margaret Deming by David Brookman and Butler Deming As a token of Friendship." Additional pencil notations by Margaret (now in Knightstown, Indiana) indicating that the chest was made in1830, and her instructions on to whom the chest should pass. Margaret Masters Deming (b. 1805 in Pennsylvania) married Lot Deming (b. 1790 in New York) in 1825 in Carroll County, Ohio. Their children were listed in nearby Harrison County in 1850, including Martha, to whom Margaret bequeathed the chest. By 1880, Margaret had moved west to Knightstown, living with one of her married daughters. Butler Deming (b. 1815 in Connecticut) was a nephew of Lot Deming. Both he and David Brookman (b. 1816 in Pennsylvania) were listed in later censuses in the furniture industry (Deming in Iowa and Brookman in Carroll County). It is likely that Deming and Brookman made the chest as teenage apprentices and gifted it to Margaret.

STRANDS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S HAIR FROM THE DR. CHARLES SABIN TAFT LOCK.

by Garth's Auctioneers & Appraisers

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

Delaware, OH, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,200

Description: STRANDS OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S HAIR FROM THE DR. CHARLES SABIN TAFT LOCK. 1865. Several strands, now sealed in plastic. During the attempt to save the president's life, two locks of hair were removed from Lincoln's head to allow the doctors access to the bullet wound. Both were given to Mary Todd Lincoln, who then later gifted them, one to Mrs. Ninian W. Edwards of Springfield, and the other to Dr. Charles Sabin Taft, one of the attending doctors. The lock passed to Taft's son, Charles C., who, in 1908, sold it to William H. Lambert, a Civil War veteran. The lock was then sold out of his estate through the Metropolitan Art Association at the Anderson Galleries in 1914, and there purchased by Henry C. HInes, who sealed the lock in a gold box. The lock was rediscovered in 1993, and was sold off in small groups of strands, including the present strands. The lot is accompanied by color photocopies of letters and other documentation related to the descent of the Taft lock of Lincoln's hair.
