[$5000/7000]
Note: The leg turning in this parlor suite is nearly identical to several examples by Jelliff conserved by the Newark Museum of Art including a suite made for the Warren Trusdell house in Newark (see Ulysses Dietz, A Century of Revivals, 19th Century American Furniture from the Collection of the Newark Museum, pl. 37-40, 43, pp, 45-51). The high-style Egyptian Revival bust arm supports and the bronze medallion at the crest of these pieces are also indicative of the Jelliff firm, though differing in form from those in the Trusdell suite. Curator William Dietz noted that while the carving and custom work varied within the firm’s output, the routinely incidental detail work (such as the legs in lot 183) varied little within the shop. (Ibid, p. 45.)

185. A West Indies Classical Carved Mahogany Tester Bed, c. 1820-1840, broken scroll headboard with urn finials, boldly turned posts with urn, baluster and rope twist decoration, on tapered bun feet, height 86 1/2 in., width 52 in., length 77 1/4 in. [$3000/5000]

188. An American Rococo Rosewood Console Table, mid-19th c., New York, the inset serpentine marble top on a skirt with two drawers, cabriole legs, height 30 in., width 45 in., depth 25 in. [$1800/2500]

190. An American Rococo Rosewood and Rosewood-Grained Half Tester Bed, mid-19th c., stamped “C. Lee”, the shaped beaded serpentine tester with lobed finials above tapered faceted columnar supports, the foot posts with urn finials, the scalloped headboard with cabochon and shell cartouche, pendant fruit and nuts below, height 122 in., inside length 77 1/2 in., width 65 1/2 in. [$8000/12000]
Note: For most of the 20th century, it was commonly held that Charles Lee was a free man of color from the workshop of New Orleans cabinetmaker Prudent Mallard. Indeed Mallard did own a slave named Charles, and beds with the C. Lee stamp are often found in historic homes in Mississippi River delta (a stamped C. Lee half-tester bed is still part of the Stanton Hall collection in Natchez, Mississippi) and appear in the inventories of New Orleans dealers Calvin Chandler Sampson, John Yetter and William McCracken in the years just before and after the Civil War. Research by scholar and Curator Stephen Harrison has revealed that Charles Lee (wc. 1856-1868) was a Manchester, Massachusetts craftsman who was known locally as a “maker of bedsteads for the Southern market.”
Reference: see Stephen Harrison, “‘C. Lee’ Maker of Beds for the Southern Market”, Maine Antiques Digest, April 1994, pp. 29-30A.

196. An American Rococo Exuberantly Carved Walnut Center Table, mid-19th c., the serpentine marble top above a fruit and nut carved scalloped skirt, scrolled supports, fluted trumpet shaped stem, scrolled legs, height 29 1/2 in., width 42 in., depth 30 in. [$5000/7000]

An American Renaissance Ebonized, Inlaid and Gilt-Incised Side Chair, c. 1870, attributed to Herter Brothers, New York, the scrolled crest terminating in floral rosettes, an inlaid maple leaf reserve below, incised stiles, shaped inlaid seat rail with bosses and fluted knopped legs ending in casters. [$1200/1800]

274. An American Egyptian Revival Laminated Mahogany and Inlaid Boudoir Chair, c. 1880-1884, stamped Herter Brothers, New York, the shaped winged back with a satinwood and mother-of-pearl foliate shield-shaped cartouche, shaped saddle seat and saber legs with lightwood stringing overall. [$2500/3500]
Note: The innovative use of laminated mahogany facilitates the distinctive incurvate back of this boudoir chair and provides a dramatic setting for the incorporation of the mother-of-pearl inlay which bespeaks an unmistakable Herter style.
Reference: other examples of Herter’s mother-of-pearl inlay are illustrated in Frelinghuysen, Howe, Voorsanger, Herter Brothers, Furniture and Interiors of a Gilded Age, pp.14, 70, 116-117, 203, 206, 208, 213.

275. An American Renaissance Inlaid, Parcel Gilt and Ebonized Double Portfolio Stand, c. 1870-1875, Kilian Brothers, New York, the shaped frame with incising and gilt palmettes, bosses and decorative carved elements, the tiered portfolio holders with colorful inlaid reserves, on splayed legs connected by a turned stretcher, height 49 in., width 23 in., depth 22 in. [$1500/2500]
Note: Kilian Brothers competed with large New York cabinet makers like Pottier and Stymus and Herter Brothers by creating stylish Neo-Grec accent furnishings such as pedestals, side tables, reception chairs, easels, and music or folio stands. Designs generally employed a juxtapostion of machine-made walnut and ebonized structural elements with incised gilt decoration and black ground inlaid panels. Two Kilian side tables, one conserved by the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute, the other with Prudent Mallard’s (New Orleans) retailer’s label from the collection of H. L. Dufour have marquetry panels, surface decoration and leg terminals very similar to those in lot 275.
Reference: Anna Tobin D’Ambrosio, “High Style Mass Produced American Furniture”, Magazine Antiques, May 1999, p. 729, pl. V and D’Ambrosio, Masterpieces of American Furniture from the Munson Williams Proctor Institute, p. 118-119, fig. 34.

W276. An American Classical Rosewood Card Table, c. 1830, possibly Anthony Quervelle, Philadelphia, the fold-over top opening to a baize lined circular playing surface, molded apron, faceted tapered square pedestal connected to an incurvate plinth ending in acanthus carved paw feet with volutes, height 29 1/2 in., width 36 in., depth 18 in. [$1200/1800]

An Important American Renaissance Walnut and Burl Walnut Bedstead, late 19th c., labeled Pottier and Stymus, 375 Lexington Avenue, New York, the architectonic headboard centered by a large porcelain roundel painted with a female personification of Sleep with attendant sprite, flanked by gilt bronze terms, with bracketed rails; incurvate footboard with a porcelain plaque painted with the figure of Hypnos (Sleep) and a fellow slumberer, both drowsy with the poppies they bear; rosewood banding, incised gilt decoration overall, height 85 in., width 57 ½ in., length 79 in. [$12000/18000]
Note: A premier New York cabinet making firm, Pottier and Stymus was known for high-style furniture in the Neo-Grec, Renaissance Revival, Egyptian Revival and Modern Gothic styles. With beginnings in the 1840’s, the firm moved to the 375 Lexington Street address between 41st and 42nd Streets in 1871.
Interestingly, this labeled bed, by virtue of the large round porcelain plaque flanked by finely cast bronze busts echoes both in design and ornament a highly important cabinet sold by Neal Auction Company as lot 742, May 22, 1993.
An inscribed and numbered Pottier and Stymus rosewood bronze mounted armchair with bronze busts inscribed P & S similar to those on lot 280 above was offered by Neal Auction Company as lot 633, February 13, 1993.
Reference: Tracy, 19th c. America, Furniture and Other Decorative Arts, pl. 207

281. A Fine American Neo-Grec Inlaid, Ebonized, Porcelain-Mounted, Burlwood and Rosewood Center Table, late 19th c., attributed to Pottier and Stymus, New York, the blocked D end top inset with finely polychrome, inlaid grotesques surrounding a representation of Aesop’s fable of ‘The Fox and the Crane”, and lateral cartouches with avian motifs; conforming skirt inset with “Sèvres” plaques of court ladies; the elaborate turned legs joined by an incurvate stretcher with anthemion ends, a reticulated lyre centered by an urn, on stylized bun feet, height 30 in., width 52 in., depth 30 1/2 in. [$14000/18000]
Provenance: From a New York estate, found in situ with lot 280.
Note: The use of an elaborate pierced stretcher, bun-form foot terminals and a porcelain plaque on the skirt in lot 281 can also be seen in a high-style Egyptian Revival rosewood table by Pottier and Stymus conserved in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A Neo-Grec table attributed to Pottier and Stymus from the Lyndhurst Corporation Collection also employs an elaborate stretcher and porcelain plaques on the skirt in the manner of those in lot 281.
Reference: see Davidson and Stillinger, The American Wing, p. 178, pl. 274 and Dubrow, American Furniture of the 19th c., p. 226

282. An American Renaissance Inlaid, Ebonized, Burl and Carved Walnut Side Table, c. 1870-1880, the round top inlaid with a trophée of musical instruments on a turned standard with outswept brackets and legs hung with chains, height 28 in., width 22 in., depth 22 in. [$1200/1800]
Note: Two round top tables by Berkey and Gay, one conserved by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the other by the Grand Rapids Public Museum each with a nearly identical musical trophée inlaid top and a pedestal base in similar manner to that of lot 282 are illustrated in Tracy, 19th c. American Furniture and Other Decorative Arts, pl. 185 and Dubrow, American Furniture of the 19th c., p. 184, respectively.

284. Two American Renaissance Gilt-Incised Rosewood and Gilt Bronze-Mounted Armchairs, mid-19th c., probably A. & H. LeJambre, Philadelphia, the gentleman’s chair with a tufted back, C scroll stiles, incurvate arms and a horseshoe seat flanked by colonettes, on trumpet legs ending in casters, the lady’s chair en suite, gentleman’s chair height 57 in., lady’s chair height 32 in. [$1200/1800]
Note: A walnut armchair made by A. and H. LeJambre, nearly identical to the gentleman’s chair featured above, is in the Rathborne collection and is illustrated in Peter Strickland, “Furniture by the LeJambre Family of Philadelphia”, The Magazine Antiques, March, 1978, p. 608, fig. 14.

285. An American Rococo Carved Rosewood Bedstead, mid-19th c., stamped C. Lee and numbered 2529, the faceted tapered tall head posts topped by large lobed urn finials, the paneled headboard with cabochon and shell carved cartouche, foliate scalloped crest rail with fruit and nut pendants, acanthus carved scrolled serpentine rails centered with a cartouche and conforming footboard, height 113 in., length 72 in., width 67 in. [$8000/12000]

286. An Important American Rococo Carved Walnut Center Table, mid-19th c., attributed to Alexander Roux, New York, the turtle top with gadrooned molding over a naturalistically carved apron with scrolls, flora and a pair of opposed wolf masques, on cabriole legs with Minerva bust terms, joined by a scrolled X stretcher with fruit basket finial and scroll feet ending in casters, height 28 1/2 in., width 44 in., depth 35 in. [$7000/10000]
Provenance: This table was probably installed in the library of Jewett William Adams (1835-1920) when he became Governor of Nevada (1882-1886). Adams came west from his native Vermont during the California Gold Rush and after his term as governor, served as the Superintendent of the U.S. Mint in Carson City.
Note: The finely rendered high relief carving and the use of animal motifs in lot 286 can be seen on other work by the Roux firm. Notably a console table conserved by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (illus. Voorsanger, Herter Brothers, Furniture and Interiors for a Gilded Age, p. 65, fig. 44) and a server in the Brooklyn Museum (illus. http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/research/luce/) each feature distinctively carved hunt figures.
A walnut server with carved figural elements of the same quality and manner as those in the table above was sold by James Julia on August 21, 2003 as lot 1252 for $189,750.

287. A Renaissance Revival Exuberantly Carved Brazilian Rosewood Parlor Suite, c. 1870-1875, possibly Herter Bros., New York, consisting of a sofa, generously proportioned armchair, and two large side chairs, the sofa with concave double back cresting in a swagged flaming urn flanked by floral cascades and volutes, the center panel with an owl perched among branches, stiles and moldings with meandering interlaced scrolls and rope carving, the terminals in the form of griffins with paired claw feet blocked at the base, sofa: height 44 in., width 66 in., depth 22 in., armchair: height 39 in., width 30 in., depth 22 in. [$4000/6000]
Note: A hall bench with griffin supports and bifurcated legs ending in paw feet very similar to those in lot 287 was installed in the entrance hall of the David Einstein house, 39, West 57th Street, New York, c. 1883. A carved griffin stile, with a widened, almost bifurcated leg ending in a spreading foot, also similar to that of lot 287 is used on the ends of a console by Herter Brothers, New York.
Reference: see illustrations in Lewis, Turner, and Mc Quillin, The Opulent Interiors of the Gilded Age, All 203 Photographs from Artistic Houses, p. 94, pl. 86 and Howe, Frelinghuysen, Voorsanger, Herter Brothers, Furniture and Interiors for a Gilded Age, p. 107, pl. 87.

288. A Set of Six American Restauration Carved Mahogany Side Chairs, c. 1840-1850, attributed to Charles A. Baudouine (1808-1895), New York, the crest and splat composed of S scrolls joined at the center by a fan carving, serpentine seat and lotus carved cabriole legs with scrolled toes, upholstered in woven horsehair. [$1200/2000]
Note: Baudouine made a set of 42 closely related chairs for the White House during the Polk administration. Sixteen of those chairs remain in the collection of the White House and are pictured in Betty C. Monkman, White House Historical Association, p. 103. Baudoine is listed in the New York directory between 1828 and 1852 as working at 333 Broadway.

292. A Pair of American Rococo Carved Rosewood and Laminated Side Chairs, mid-19th c., by J. & J.W. Meeks, New York, in the pattern referred to as “Hartford”, each with pierced scrolled crest centering a cluster of flowers, the sides with trailing grapevines, serpentine seat and foliate carved cabriole legs. [$5000/7000]

293. An American Neo-Grec Cherry, Rosewood, Marquetry, Ebonized, and Gilt-Incised Parlor Cabinet, c. 1865-1875, New York, the stepped top with anthemion crest, blocked case centered by a cabinet door inlaid with a trophée medallion and opening to a birdseye maple interior, on a conforming plinth ending in casters, height 59 in., width 38 in., depth 19 in. [$5000/7000]
Note: The design of lot 290 indicates a cabinetmaker with a sophisticated understanding of Neo-Grec and other historical motifs that is modified to create a unified overall composition. The fine construction of this cabinet in cherry, rosewood, birdseye maple and exotic wood inlays are also indicative of a top tier New York maker perhaps Alexander Roux, whose known ouvre demonstrates a virtuoso understanding of variations in Renaissance style.
An important New York cabinet with a blocked base, incised gilt leafing vine decoration, and ribboned musical trophee panels similar to those in lot 290 is in the collection of the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute.
Reference: A stamped Roux cabinet masterpiece is illustrated in D’Ambrosio, Masterpieces of American Furniture from the Munson-Williams-Proctor Institute, see pp. 106-107, pl. 36; also see Ibid, pp.108-109, pl. 37.

294. A Rare Diminutive American Aesthetic Brass Pedestal, late 19th c., the beveled top and shelf connected by bracketed rods, the legs splaying ending in disc feet, height 32 in., width 8 1/2 in., depth 8 1/2 in. [$1000/1500]
Note: Between 1840 and 1890 American manufacturers began to expand the use of metals like iron, brass and bronze beyond utilitarian and outdoor objects with innovations in industrial metalworking techniques. “Artistic Bronze Goods” became popular with style conscious consumers in the 1880’s. Firms like the Charles Parker Company (Connecticut, 1832-1957), Ansonia Brass and Copper Company (Connecticut, 1854-99) and Bradley and Hubbard (Connecticut, 1854-1940) made complex furniture and accessories for indoor use such as tables, accent chairs, mirrors, fireplace tools, and lighting often with an enthusiasm for Aesthetic “Japonisme” design.
Reference: D’Ambrosio, A Brass Menagerie, Metalwork and the Aesthetic Movement, pp. 9-10.

363. An American Aesthetic Mahogany Print Cabinet, c. 1875, Philadelphia, the hinged top with molded edge, folding raised paneled front opening to an interior with poplar print dividers, the back with a retractable print holder, the whole with turned legs connected to shoe feet, height 42 in., depth 17 in.

365. An American Egyptian Revival Rosewood, Gilt-Incised and Bronze-Mounted Side Chair, attributed to Pottier & Stymus, New York, the oval back with a strapwork splat, the stiles with clustered finials above bronze roundels, lacking casters. [$1000/1500]

366. An American Carved Rosewood and Gilt-Incised Side Chair, c. 1860-1865, attributed to Herter Brothers, the tufted back with scrolled molded stiles, shaped scalloped seat rail and shell carved cabriole legs ending in modified hoof feet with turned discs and casters below. [$1000/1500]
Note: The scrolled “French” back on lot 366 is similar in design to that on a chair at Victoria Mansion, the c. 1858 Ruggles Sylvester Morse summer home in Portland, Maine, the interior of which is one of the oldest known Gustave Herter commissions.
Reference: Howe, Frelinghuysen, Voorsanger, Herter Brothers, Furniture and Interiors for a Gilded Age, p. 132-133, pl. 3.

367. A Set of Six American Modern Gothic Carved and Incised Walnut Side Chairs, late 19th c., attributed to Daniel Pabst, Philadelphia, of angular form, the seat rail incised and with center rosette, the chamfered legs splayed and joined by turned H stretcher, mortised and pegged, in “estate” condition. [$1800/2500]
Note: The geometric floral decoration and Neo-Gothic form of these walnut chairs is indicative of the work of Daniel Pabst (German/Philadelphia 1826-1910) who used reform-minded designs in part from Frank Furness, Bruce Talbert, Christopher Dresser, and Charles Eastlake.
Reference: see Madigan, Hanks, Ninteenth Century Furniture, Innovation, Revival, Reform pp. 36-43 and Hanks, Talbott, Daniel Pabst: Philadelphia Cabinet Maker

385. An American Aesthetic Carved and Ebonized Armchair in the Manner of Gustave Viardot, late 19th c., the crest rail centered by a bat mask flanked by wings, geometric pierced carving, incised stiles and arms terminating in dragon heads, pierced seat rail, the square legs ending in claw feet, retains remnants of antique Chinese silk and velvet upholstery, height 41 1/2 in., width 26 in., depth 19 in. [$2000/3000]

386. An American Aesthetic Mahogany Armchair, c. 1870, attributed to George J. Hunzinger, the padded back and seat connected by deep spiral turnings, ball terminals, the X-form legs connected by stretchers, height 31 in., width 20 in., depth 19 in. [$800/1200]

388. A Rare American Aesthetic Mahogany and Cherry Library Desk, late 19th c., old inset baize surface on top; one side with two banks of drawers flanking a kneehole; the opposite with center bookshelf flanked by brass mounted cabinet doors; each end with deep cased drawer, distinctively carved masques, rosettes within ropework, Medieval hatch carving; the whole on plinth molded base, casters, locks marked Yale Patent… 1878, height 30 ½ in., width 69 in., depth 48 in.  [$3000/5000]
Note: The scale, high-style, and fine execution of lot 388 is indicative of furnishing for the grand houses of America’s Gilded Age industrial barons. A desk of similar type was installed in library of J. Pierpont Morgan’s house at 219 Madison Avenue, New York.
Reference: Lewis, Turner, Mc Quillin, The Opulent Interiors of the Gilded Age, All 203 Photographs from Artistic Houses p. 146, pl. 158.

389. A Renaissance Revival Mahogany and Ebonized Octagonal Work Stand, the lift top with a high relief profile of Apollo, pendant drops below, on a faceted support with quadripartite base and lion’s paw feet, height 31 3/8 in., width 16 in., depth 19 1/2 in. [$800/1200]

400. An American Classical Carved Mahogany Work Table, early 19th c., the top with chamfered corners, two drawers, turned pendant drops, acanthus carved bulbous stem, arched acanthus carved legs with hairy paw feet, height 32 in., width 23 in., depth 16 3/4 in. [$1200/1800]

401. An American Federal Inlaid Cherrywood Chest of Drawers, late 18th/early 19th c., mid-Atlantic or Southern, the graduated drawers with fan inlaid corners and lightwood stringing, molded base and bracket feet, height 38 in., width 38 1/2 in., depth 18 3/4 in. [$1500/2500]

402. An American Federal Cherrywood Linen Press, c. 1800, probably New Jersey, having a beaded cove-molded cornice with diamond chain frieze above molded doors, the base with graduated drawers, scalloped molding and tall bracket feet, height 80 1/2 in., width 48 in., depth 20 in. [$4000/6000]

404. A Fine American Late Classical Figured Mahogany Armoire, c. 1830, New York, the arched cornice above a pair of doors with beveled Gothic panels opening to sliding shelves and flanked by columns on scroll plinths; the sides with beveled wardrobe doors; massive scroll feet; penciled inscription, interior, height 92 in., width 65 1/2 in., depth 29 in. [$8000/12000]
Note: The arched cornice and Gothic paneled doors flanked by columns on lot 404 are very similar to those in item 28 illustrated in the well known broadside advertisement from J. and J. W. Meeks.

Shryock’s son, William, was installed as partner 1852-1870, and the 1856 Baltimore city directory lists the workshop address as No. 6 South Calvert Street near the intersection of Baltimore Street.
Shyrock competed with other well known Baltimore cabiniet makers such as Robert Renwick and Oliver Merryman. Shryock’s firm was so successful he became prominent in the Baltimore business community as president of the Third National Bank and trustee for the Maryland Institute.
