            Est: $5,000 - $8,000

            Julia Appleton Bird (1894-1983), owner of this pair of busts, descended from the family who established Appleton Farms in Ipswich and Hamilton, Massachusetts in the mid-17th century. The estate was maintained through nine generations, making it the oldest continuously operated farm in the country. She was the daughter of Randolph "Budd" M. Appleton, an avid sportsman and Master of the Hounds at Myopia Hunt Club from 1883-1900 and Helen K. Mixter Appleton, who at age nine was the youngest survivor of a disaster at sea that claimed her parents- the sinking of the Ville du Havre in 1873. The marble busts may be a likeness of Helen's younger brother, Charles Cutler Mixter (1857-1867).In 1917 Julia married Charles Sumner Bird, Jr. (1885-1980) of the influential Bird family of East Walpole and Boston. Charles' father, Charles Sumner Bird (1855-1927) may also have been the model for these busts. He was President of the Boston Advertiser Publishing Co. and a candidate for Governor in 1912-1913. His father, Francis William Bird (1809-1894), who established the family's paper manufacturing business, was a prominent State legislator, anti-slavery leader and candidate for Governor in 1872. He named his son for Charles Sumner, U.S. Senator and the subject of a bronze sculpture by Ball, erected in the Boston Public Garden in 1878.Each raised on a socle. One signed "T. Ball" and dated 1862 on the reverse. Overall height 17 inches.Provenance: Estate of Julia Appleton Bird (Mrs. Charles Sumner Bird, Jr.) of Ipswich and Boston, 1983; to the present owner.

            Est: $15,000 - $25,000

            Thomas Ball American, 1819-1911 Whispering Zephyr, 1884 Signed T. Ball (lr) White marble relief Diameter 19 7/8 inches Provenance: Gloria Stacey, London (acquired from an estate sale, London, early 1950s) Thence by descent to the current owner Literature: William Ordway Partridge, "Thomas Ball," The New England Magazine, vol. 12, pp. 290-304, illus., another version. In My Three Score and Ten (John Wilson and Son: Cambridge, 1891), Thomas Ball writes of his sculpture projects, noting that after his return to his Florence from a Boston sojourn in 1883, he "modeled a new statue, in small, of Lincoln, and one of Garfield. These, together with portrait busts (General Grant among them) and ideal medallions ("Whispering Zephyr," "Ophelia," etc), occupied my time till January, 1885." Born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, Ball was both musically and artistically gifted, and taught himself first to paint, and then to sculpt in wood. His first sculptural effort was a portrait of Jenny Lind. In 1854, at the age of thirty-five he traveled to Florence to study, and remained there for years, part of the vibrant artists' colony that included Hiram Powers and the Brownings. His studio became a regular destination for Americans on the Grand Tour, and aspiring collectors commissioned versions of his current projects, which in 1884 would have included the graceful Whispering Zephyr, as well as Ophelia. Whispering Zephyr depicts the beautiful Chloris, goddess of flowers and the personification of spring in Greek mythology (known as Flora in Roman lore). She is wooed by Zephyr, Greek god of the West Wind and harbinger of spring (and son of Aurora, goddess of the dawn). Here depicted as a cherubic youth, Zephyr is enveloped in swirling draperies, tossed by the same breeze that gently lifts the curls framing his beloved's face.It is unclear how many multiples of Whispering Zephyr were produced by Ball. One version is included in the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago. C
