Estimated Price: $155 - $175

Description: The AEAA proudly presents this Scarce & highly collectible English, Royal Doulton, Joseph W. Ledger era Earthenware Toby jug, in the large #D6375 Dick Whittington form. This spectacular earthenware Toby was English RD registered under #884109, in 1956. This is a handsomely modeled & hand painted figure in the large style, which carries the after 1947, standard Royal Doulton stamps with names + dates, and RD numbers. Our example is a Special, Scarce ETC (English Translucent China) Toby, only produced from 1968-1971, and an interior light shines brilliantly through the Toby, in deference to the standard earthenware examples. This Toby weighs 2#, and stands 5.75 x 5 x 7 inches tall, and is in wonderful condition. Everyone knows of the exploits of Don Quixote and his faithful companion Sancho. Book values and dating are mostly courtesy of Jean Dales classic reference Royal Doulton Jugs - 10th Edition (A Charlton Catalogue 2008). xxxxxxxxxxxxx.The history of the English Toby Jug dates back to ca. 1780, and the intended Ale jugs (probably never use as such), were produced by Giants from the Staffordshire Potteries such as John Astbury, Thomas Whieldon, Ralph Wood II, and John Wood Sr. (brother to Ralph Wood II. This tightly knit band of potters was joined in the middle 1800s by such firms as William Kent, the Sharpe Brothers, and Issac Wilson. The absolute origin of the term Toby is unknown, but many scholars trace the character to Shakespeare?s Sir Toby Belch from Twelfth Night or Uncle Toby from Sterns Tristram Shandy. *** weighs 2#, and stands 5.75 x 5 x 7 inches tall

GEORGE WASHINGTON Benevolent Society

Lot 153: GEORGE WASHINGTON Benevolent Society "Pro Patria" Silk Ribbon

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $300 - $400

Description: Washington RelatedWashington Benevolent Society "Pro Patria" Silk Ribbonc. 1806, George Washington Benevolent Society "Pro Patria" Silk Ribbon, Choice Very Fine. This black Printed White Silk Ribbon measures 6.5" x 1.75" with a crude engraved woodblock printed portrait of George Washington with "Pro Patria" or "For Country" at the top, above Washington. "Washington Benevolent Society" is printed below. The Washington Benevolent Society Ribbons are regarded as some of the earliest partisan objects in American political history. This Ribbon shows some edge fraying and browning with scattered age tone. It came together with a small paper tag sewn into it reading, "Sarah Grant - 1806." There is a crease at the middle of the ribbon, printing is good for such a highly rustic engraved design and is in very nice overall condition for its age. Rare design type, being the first we have offered.Washington Benevolent Societies were local or "grass roots" political clubs established from 1808-1816 by the Federalist Party in the United States to gain votes. The Federalists, like any political party, had wanted to get as many members (and votes) as possible. Members of the Washington Benevolent Societies received Silk Ribbons. These Societies were set up in states such as New York, Rhode Island, New Jersey.

Author THOMAS L. McKENNEY 1848 Autograph Letter Signedto Dolley Madison

Lot 58: Author THOMAS L. McKENNEY 1848 Autograph Letter Signedto Dolley Madison

by Early American

April 25, 2015, 9:00 AM PST

Rancho Santa Fe, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $4,000 - $6,000

Description: AutographsThomas L. McKenney's Handwritten 1848 Letter to Dolley MadisonTHOMAS L. McKENNEY (1785-1858). Superintendent of Indian Affairs under President James Madison in 1816 and Author the historic 3-Volume "History of the Indian Tribes".December 29, 1848-Dated, Historic Content Autograph Letter Signed, "Tho L McKenney" addressed to Dolley Madison (Prior First Lady as Wife of President James Madison), New York City, 3 pages, measuring 7.5" x 10", Choice Very Fine. This personal and historical content Letter partially reads:"... I hope to be excused for taxing your memory... the only Interview I ever had with Mr. Madison, upon any subject connected with General Armstrong, was on F. Street, (he being on horseback) when I was Commissioned by General Smith, in Company with Major Williams to report to the President, the state of revolt in which the Troops on Windmill Hill, were thrown, on the Appearance of General Armstrong among them, after the Conflagration of the Capitol... It is for History I ask this Information -- as well as to shew before it shall have passed to the final record, the falsehood of connecting me with this 'Hanson and Bavie' Committee..."Aside from some expected light even tone, one small perforation this important Letter is in very nice overall condition. A few unrelated pencil notations and a brief red manuscript biography of McKenney appear on the blank back panel. The Handwritten text and signature are very clear and easily readable being upon clean period wove paper. A wonderful addition to any historical Autograph collection combining Thomas L. McKenney's Handwritten Letter and sent to none other than Dolley Madison!Thomas L. McKenney (1785-1858) was a Georgetown merchant, was appointed Superintendent of Indian Affairs in 1816 by President James Madison. He went on to author the 3-volume "History of the Indian Tribes" and maintained a close relationship with the Madison Family.Thomas Loraine McKenney (1785-1859) started out his career as a merchant. In 1815 he ran a commission store near the ferry wharf in Georgetown. He was also on the board of directors of the Bank of Columbia, in Georgetown, with John Cox, John Threlkeld, and Henry Foxall. In 1816 McKenney secured a Federal appointment as Superintendent of Indian Trade. The Bureau of Indian Trade had its office in the old Bank of Columbia building at 3210 M Street, N.W.McKenney was appointed by President Madison to be Superintendent of Indian Trade, April 2, 1816, to replace John Mason, who had resigned (Intelligencer, April 9, 1816); he knew nothing of Indians, but was well-versed in trade."My commission bears date the 2d day of April, 1816. I entered upon the duties of my office on the 12th of the same month. I had for some time, nearly two years before, disposed of my mercantile establishments, of which I was owner of two in Georgetown, and held an interest, till about the period of my appointment, in a store in Washington, under the firm of J. C. Hall & Co." (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)In those days delegations of Indians that came to Washington generally stayed in hotel rooms; the beds had been removed to accommodate their preference for sleeping on the ground. Some of these representatives of southern and western tribes also visited Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights.In 1820, Sans Nerf, a chief of the Great Osages, and two companions, were there. In the winter of 1821-22 a delegation of Pawnee, Sauk, Fox, Menominee, Miami, Sioux, and Chippewa Indians came to the farm, and in 1824, Cherokee chief Elijah Hicks was there.The Factory System of government trading posts involved commodities as coffee, sugar, lead, salt, penknives, northwest blankets, calico, and strouding (coarse woolen cloth used in the Indian trade). What came back were furs. "Thomas L. McKenney - furs, peltries for sale at the Superintendant of Indian trade in Georgetown". (Alexandria Gazette, March 19, October 16, 1817; November 10, 1818)The Factory System ended in 1822, over opposition by the John Jacob Astor's American Fur Company, and by manufacturers and merchants who resented McKenney, and the Georgetown merchants he favored. One such merchant was John Cox, importer and banker, and later mayor of Georgetown. Cox loaned money to McKenney to buy Weston, and McKenney bought from Cox for the Indian trade, nearly to the exclusion of other merchants. (McKenney, Thomas L., Memoirs, Official and Personal: Thomas L. McKenney, 1846)From 1824 to 1830, McKenney served as Superintendent of Indian Affairs. While his upbringing as a merchant had no doubt prepared him for the earlier position, supervising the Indian Trade, his qualifications to be an architect of Indian policy are harder to picture.McKenney's transactions with the "civilized" southern tribes had, at one time, persuaded him that Indians might be able to adopt white values, and McKenney made several experiments along these lines of his own (albeit at government expense).In 1818, James Lawrence MacDonald, son of a Choctaw woman and a white man, raised by Baltimore Quakers, came to Weston, McKenney's farm on Georgetown Heights, and worked for him at the War Department. In 1827 McKenney brought two Creek boys back to Washington to be educated. One was William Barnard, son of Major Timpoochee Barnard, an ally of Andrew Jackson in the Creek War. A boy named Lee Compere was William Barnard's companion. The boys remained with McKenney for three years. Finally, in 1828, Dougherty Colbert, age 15, the son of a Chickasaw chief, came to live at Weston, to attend school in Georgetown. Colbert was praised by McKenney for losing the Chickasaw language!As wrong-headed as such experiments must appear to us, in McKenney's view the alternatives were worse: Indians who did not assimilate, or move beyond the Mississippi River, were doomed. In 1829 McKenney wrote: "We believe if the Indians do not emigrate, and fly the causes, which are fixed in themselves, and which have proved so destructive in the past, they must perish!" (Stuart Banner, How The Indians Lost Their Land, p.209)Although these views would seem to conform to those generally ascribed to Andrew Jackson, in 1830 McKenney was dismissed for not being in harmony with the Indian policy of the Jackson administration. At the same time President Jackson ordered the War Department to remove McKenney's Indian boys from school and return them to their people.McKenney's dismissal ushered in the second phase of his career. Perhaps as early as 1816 McKenney had imagined an Indian archive, which would be "preserved for the information of future generations and long after the Indians will have been no more". During the years McKenney worked in the War Department he had made it standard procedure that members of Indian delegations would, at War Department expense, have their likenesses recorded in oil paint. By 1830 the artist Charles Bird King had painted about a hundred and twenty portraits, which McKenney did not permit any other artists to copy; his intention, from the start, had been to publish them himself.Shortly before being fired by President Jackson, McKenney announced plans for the portfolio of hand-colored lithographs of these portraits, "with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs". McKenney moved to Philadelphia, where his publisher was, and had the paintings sent to him one at a time, to be copied in oil for the lithographer to work from.The text, which was to consist of history and individual biographies, was not written by McKenney -- who knew "knew nothing but the names", according to his co-author James Hall -- but by Hall, based on interviews with Indian agents, traders and soldiers, but not -- it need hardly be said -- with Indians.The History of the Indian Tribes of North America, by Thomas McKenney and James Hall, which came out in three volumes between 1836 and 1844, is now considered a landmark of American ethnography, and one of the major American publications of the nineteenth century.Sources: Historical Sketches of Glover Park, Upper Georgetown, and Georgetown Heights by Carlton FletcherHerman J.
