NH antique auctioneer
charged with bid rigging
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — A
veteran New Hampshire antique
auctioneer is facing charges he
rigged the bidding for a nautical
painting and then assaulted and
imprisoned the painting’s owner
who had asked for payment.
The Portsmouth Herald says
52-year-old Stephen J. Bennett
of Portsmouth is charged with
misdemeanor counts of collusive
bidding, conspiracy, simple as-
sault and false imprisonment.
Police say Bennett told the
owner of the painting he con-
tracted to sell in December that
it did not sell and that a high bid
at the auction was offered by
someone working with Bennett in
an attempt to drive up the price.
Police say the assault occurred
after the owner said he saw the
painting sell.
The person who offered the
high bid was also charged with
collusive bidding.
OAKLAND, Calif. — This Weller art
pottery footed basket planter featuring
roses on a mottled green patterned
ground, 7 inches high by 10 inches in
diameter sold for $35 against an esti-
mate of $50 to $100 in Clars Auction
Gallery’s Jan. 9 auction.

4 ANTIQUE TRADER • April 28, 2010
A phone call from a loyal reader compliment-
ing Fred Taylor’s recent column on the types of
value reminded me about the new book Objects
of our Afection by Lisa Tracy. You can read a
review on page 12.
Te reader liked how, in the April 7 issue,
Taylor was able to succinctly classify the types
of values he encounters from well-meaning,
arm chair “experts.” He classifes the dif cult
task of assigning value by using three categories:
market value, utilitarian value and sentimental
value. It’s a pity those values did not dawn on
Tracy and her family until it was too late.
Her book is about two sisters’ quest to clean
out their parents’ estate only to learn afer it is
sold that the items held much more than mon-
etary value. Te book’s bittersweet message can
be summed up in this excerpt following the sale
of her family’s artifacts:
Here, at this auction, the buyers actu-
ally have the opportunity to know where
these pieces came from. But, I am soon to
discover, they are not the least bit inter-
ested in any history attaching to the stuf
they’ve just procured.
Taylor and Tracy are both saying the same
thing: Te objects we pursue are less about
the objects than they are
about the pursuit and the
memories we make along
the way. For Tracy her
family’s artifacts were the
only surviving link to those
long lost relatives.
It is almost as though Tracy felt she didn’t live
up to the obligation of being a custodian of these
keepsakes.
It’s a message that should be shared before
that frst call is placed to the auctioneer.

Two corrections of note:
Te caption on the cover of the April 7 is-
sue was incomplete. It should have read: “Fig-
ural whiskey nips made by Germany’s Schafer
& Vater Co. take many forms, ranging from the
“happy” fellow celebrating the end of Prohibi-
tion, far right, to the spooky skeleton decanter
and schnaps cup set. Te blue bottle is worth
$125 and the “poison” set, at right, missing its
tray and two cups, is valued at around $150.”
Also, in the feature on fgural whiskey nips, a
bar keep would have ordered the bottles from a
Sears Roebuck & Co. catalog, not a calendar.
Antique Trader regrets the errors.

ternet live-bidding services to more than

Tey respect tradition, and their long-held
reputation for appraising and auctioning
quality estates is impeccable, yet they’ve

Police stun man waiving
Buck Rogers pop gun
SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP) – Po-
lice used a stun gun to shock a
man who was waving what turned
out to be a toy gun at passersby
in downtown Santa Rosa.
The man – a transient who
had no identifcation on him
– was taken to a hospital after the
incident April 4. Several people
called 911 after they saw the man
waving what looked like a gun.
Responding offcers told the
man to put his hands on the
ground. When he bent over, police
say he put a hand on the toy gun.
Offcers couldn’t tell if it was real
and stunned him with a Taser. The
gun turned out to be an antique
Buck Rogers pop gun.
Woman sentenced to seven
years for selling fake art
LOS ANGELES (AP) – A
woman who sold $20 million in
phony artwork she claimed was
by Picasso, Dali and Chagall to
thousands of people through a
televised auction has been sen-
tenced to seven years in federal
prison, prosecutors said April 6.
Kristine Eubanks, 52, of La
Canada Flintridge pleaded guilty
in 2007 to conspiracy and tax
evasion and was sentenced April
5. She and her husband, Gerald
Sullivan, conducted an art auction
show twice a week on DirecTV
and The Dish Network from 2002
to 2006.
The couple ran Fine Art
Treasures Gallery, which sold fake
and forged lithographs, prints and
paintings purportedly found at es-
tate liquidations around the world
to more than 10,000 victims,
U.S. attorney’s spokesman Thom
Mrozek said.
The couple drove up sale
prices by having fake bids an-
nounced on-air, Mrozek said.
Sullivan will be sentenced
in May. He faces a maximum
sentence of six years in federal
prison.

Readers’ Letters
Readers respond to the Question of the
Week: “What was the one antique or col-
lectible you regret passing up?”
As an antiques dealer I have bought
and sold tons of items. Tings will call me
back and usually by following my gut or
eye as they say in the antiques business it
works out well.
I regret to this day not getting a beauti-
ful child’s antique tea set.
When I went back as it was calling me
back it was gone. Maybe a good thing as
sometimes if I love them too much it is
harder for me to sell them but cannot keep
it all.

Years ago there was a beautiful oil
painting on a wall at an estate sale that I
was allowed to go in to buy the day before
it opened. I almost bought it. It was $100
but I only had a few hundred to my name.
I passed it up. Tat very Sunday, on An-
tiques Roadshow, there was a painting by
the same artist, Cortes, and it was valued
at $10,000. I have never, ever gotten over
it.

Thrift store find is thrilling
I loved the article about the imari char-
ger from a thrif store. My wife and I ran
a thrif store here in Beaumont, Calif., for
close to six years. I couldn’t believe the
(stuf) people would give away.
Needless to say I have so much stuf
that I could start my own store. I became
very good at reconizing valuable and
unique stuf. I have lots of books on value.
I haven’t sold any of it.
I colllect for both reasons, I like an as-
sortment of items, dolls, glass, porcelain,
books furs, etc, etc. I have seen a plate
like that somewhere and might even have
one myself. I know about imariware and
several others. I hope my input will be of
use.

Q
We were referred to
you! My mother-
in-law went to
an Antique Roadshow
and the man they talked to
sent us to you. My husband
has a bank that came from
WW I. It belonged to his
great-grandmother’s brother.
He brought it back
from the war. I have
searched for this bank
for quite some time
and have come up with
nothing. Can you please
help us? I have attached pic-
tures of it to this e-mail. Any information you can give us will be
greatly appreciated.
I have also attached pictures of some type of zodiac coins. I
have never seen these type of coins before. Can you please look
at those, too? Tank you so much for your time!!
A
Your ceramic sailor bank is French, meaning he comes
from France, not where his tour ended up. At 5 1/4
inches high and titled “Seamans Savings,” the bank
dates to the 1940s and comes in a variety of quality painted
versions: some ofer more detail than others. A rare, blue ver-
sion of this popular bank, similarly with a duf e bag hoisted
on his shoulder, but with his head turned in a diferent direc-
tion, sold for $200 in 2007. Based on recent auctions, the bank
is worth about $10 in its
current condition.
Your pair of nov-
elty zodiac coins are
curious and collect-
ible, but not particu-
larly valuable because
so many were produced.
Tese are from the
1960s and are worth
about $2 apiece based
on online sales.

Your grandmother had very discerning taste to have
obtained an authentic Steuben glass squat form vase.
Engraver Tomas G. Hawkes and English glassmak-
er Frederick Carder founded Steuben Glass Works
in Corning, N.Y., in 1903. Te signatures found on
Steuben Aurene glass pieces and most pre-1932
pieces are hand-engraved on the bottom, sometimes
with a shape number included. Te photos look as
though your vase is numbered 7099. It is worth $300
to $400 in its present condition. You can read the
entire history of Steuben glass in the March 3 issue
of Antique Trader.

Speaking of Dolls

A common complaint ofen voiced by doll collectors is,
“Why did I buy this?” Tis is especially true of early ac-
quisitions. When we start collecting, we ofen are tempted
to buy anything and almost everything that has two arms
and two legs. Hopefully, with research, reading, observa-
tion and networking with other doll people, this frenzy will
quickly pass.
In the 1950s and 1960s, antique dolls were relatively
inexpensive and buying something you later regretted was
not such a problem; but with prices of good dolls rising,
making a mistake today could be very costly. But today,
collectors have an advantage. We don’t have to wait for that
one yearly doll show to buy our dolls. We don’t have to feel
that the one doll show is our only chance to buy a doll this
year. Today we have many more opportunities to compare
and buy; 24 hours a day, we have access to hundreds of auc-
tion sites, eBay, online stores and Web sites from around
the world. We can compare dolls and prices and we can
wait for the perfect doll to come along.
One such “perfect doll” came to me recently. She is a
Greiner. Produced by Ludwig Greiner in Philadelphia
starting in the 1840s, this papier mache doll head has a
paper label dating her March 30, 1858. Her head is per-
fect with no chips, cracks or repaint. Her paper label has
not been damaged. Her cloth body has leather arms, all in
excellent condition. She comes in her original hump back
trunk complete with a lif out tray. Te doll fts in the bot-
tom of the trunk and the complete wardrobe is displayed
in the tray. She is dressed in pantaloons and chemise but
also has two slips, additional pantaloons, a blouse, a silk
dress, socks and wonderful red leather shoes. Attached to
one article of clothing is a note written in mid-1800s script
stating that this doll belonged to Julia Forsyth Lee of Deer-
ing, N.H. To fnd a doll this perfect is always exciting, but
to fnd a papier mache is even more exciting. Papier mache
is easily cracked, rubbed, chipped and broken. Tese dolls
Some dolls are worth the wait

This American Greiner papier-mache
doll retains its original paper label dated March 30,
1858. She has her trunk with dress, shoes and multiple
pieces of underclothing. The note attached to the slip
was written by the original owner in Deering, N.H.

Book Reviews

Te Objects of Our Afection: Uncover-
ing My Family’s Past, One Chair, Pistol, and
Pickle Fork at a Time by Lisa Tracy is a heart-
felt memoir full of wry observations, honest
feelings, and practical advice about dealing
with heirlooms and the family members
who loved them.
It is also a quintessential treatise on a di-
lemma that strikes most of us at some point
in our lives: Not taking time to know and
understand our parents and grandparents
until it’s too late.
Afer their mother’s death, Tracy and her
sister, Jeanne, must decide what to do with
their family’s belongings, which include a
“George Washington” chair, a pair of “Aaron
Burr” dueling pistols, a stack of Canton
china, and multitudes of other antiques and
collectibles acquired during their military
family’s wayfaring ways. Te sisters relegate
the items to two storage units while they decide how to deal with
them. Finally, years later, they agree to auction them, and during
the course of preparing them for auction, they come to learn (too
late) just how much sentimental value
they possess.
“We can…never be free of our stuf un-
til we have dealt with the stories it carries,”
Tracy sums up at the end of the book’s
prologue. “In the end, it does indeed tell
us something about who we are.”
And this book does just that. In the
course of researching the provenance of
her belongings, Tracy not only learns
things about the items themselves, but
also about both sides of her family, in-
cluding unknown information about her
paternal grandmother, an aunt she never
knew existed, and other genealogical
facts. Unfortunately, most of these les-
sons occur afer the items have been
consigned to the auction. But better late
than never!

ing My Family’s Past, One Chair, Pistol, and Pickle Fork at

Objects of our Afection a bittersweet tale
Te newly released Women’s Painted Furniture 1790-1830,
American Schoolgirl Art is a remarkable resource for readers today.
Tis quality volume from University Press of New England opens
the door to the past art of girls and women applying a fourish of
paint to boxes, tables, and other wooden objects.
Research by author Betsy Krieg Salm presents fascinating
American schoolgirl art in its entirety including its origination,
materials, and techniques. Further there is personal history on the
girls of long ago who created this enduring work.
Salm moves on to document the socioeconomic, cultural, and
aesthetic history of women’s painted furniture. It was a time when
talented females painted items as small as jewelry or souvenir
boxes and as large as chairs and bureaus.
In the process of it all the book carefully chronicles the painting
process itself, including a selection of cabinetmakers and woods,
varnishes and paints, and specifc tools and techniques.
“Te most endearing thing about this work is that most pieces
were signed and dated with places of origin,” notes Salm in the
book’s introduction. “Te signatures belong to young women,
twelve to 36 years of age, who attended or graduated from schools
and academics in New England between 1790 and 1830. Teir
hand written endearments, po-
ems, prayers, and memorial tes-
timonials scripted onto the boxes
make the art very personal.”
Some of New England’s most
famous families had daughters
who were artisans of women’s
painted furniture including Em-
ily Dickinson’s paternal aunt Lu-
cretia, and Harriet and Catherine
Beecher. Many attended special
boarding schools in which they
learned the art.
Salm is a scholar, artisan, and
teacher of the historic area of women’s painted furniture. Her own
work has been exhibited in numerous shows.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – As an early spring mist rolls in,
the sounds of patrons waiting patiently at the gates echo into
the main hall. As the doors swing open, the shine of polish on
furniture, the sparkle of jewelry and memories of childhood
toys are sure signs they have found the New Atlantic City
Antiques Show.
Change has never been easy, but Allison Kohler and her
staf at JMK Productions have done this with the launch of
the Atlantic City Antiques Show March 27-28. Kohler’s show
flls the void created when F+W Media, Inc., canceled the
24-year-old Atlantique City Antiques Show, citing economic
uncertainty. [F+W Media also publishes Antique Trader
magazine.-Editor]
Kohler, a second generation promoter, was “very happy
with the turnout for the show.” She felt there was a nice
showing from the dealers and got a lot of good feedback from
the attendees. Most customers were happy the show was back
and saw the quality of merchandise was still there. Te new
approach of grouping dealers according to specialty seemed to
make a lot of customers very happy. Te show attendance was
in excess of 5,000 busy shoppers searching for unique treasures
from the over 250 dealers showcasing their wares.
Variety and quality of merchandise is one of the main rea-
sons 15-year veteran shopper Robert Smith of Shippensburg,
Pa., keeps coming. Smith is a serious sand pail and vintage

past, but there’s some really great stuf here, defnitely quality
over quantity!”

American Wildlife Art
Cover Story
A
mericans’ love afair with wildlife art began before they were even
Americans.
Sir Walter Raleigh, planning his frst expedition to the new world,
requested artist John White to accompany the trip as a vital crewmate and fellow
history maker. If he could show all of England the wonderful and proftable beasts
and fowers to be found in the New World, Raleigh knew future trips would be all
but certain. Images of fora and fauna equaled fame and fortune.
White’s lifelike watercolored drawings of brown pelicans, land crabs and log-
gerhead turtles delivered beyond Raleigh’s wildest dreams. Tey are the start of a
genre of art uniquely American in subject, artistry and political power. American
wildlife art has inspired kings, presidents and the public to hunt, exploit and con-
serve the continent’s creatures.
In the last 20 years, American wildlife art has established itself as a legitimate
genre in both antique and postmodern art. A genre that had been taken for granted
for so long has come into its own as a form of art both respectible and politically
powerful. On March 27 a single handcolored engraving afer John James Audu-
bon, arguably the biggest name in American wildlife art, sold for $105,000 by the
Neal Auction Company. Te sale was a follow up to the frm’s Nov. 21, 2009 sale of
the Julius Bien reissue folio of Audubon’s Te Birds of America, sold for $230,000.
Although Audubon’s name has become synonymous with American wildlife
(he portrayed some 2,000 birds and hundreds of animals and plants), his work
was built on nearly 200 years’ worth of his predecessors’ endeavors. Te demand

Currier and Ives is the successful American printmaking firm
headed by Nathaniel Currier (1813–1888) and James Merritt
Ives (1824–1895), which is credited for bringing wildlife art
to the masses. From its New York offices, the prolific firm
produced prints from paintings by fine artists as black and
white lithographs that were later hand colored. The Currier &
Ives lithograph above is from 1861 and is based on an oil on
canvas by Arthur F. Tait. Titled The Life of a Hunter: A Tight Fix,
it was sold for $44,063 by Skinner, Inc., in 2004.
Artist Bob Kuhn began as a magazine illustrator and for 30
years worked on outdoor sportsmen magazines including Field
& Stream and Outdoor Life. He was heavily influenced by Carl
Rungius, considered the dean of wildlife artists.
Reproduced here is Kuhn’s seminal work titled Pas de Deux,
1975. Measuring 20 inches by 36 inches, the acrylic on
masonite is now in the permanent collection of the National
Museum of Wildlife Art.

Decoy market educating
hobby’s future collectors
for wildlife art was solidifed during the Age
of Enlightenment, when collectors themselves
funded expeditions for new discoveries.
“Tis was the age of discovery and enlight-
enment,” said David Wagner, author of the
groundbreaking book American Wildlife Art
(Marquand Books, 2008). “A time when big
science was interested in collecting and col-
lecting information: data, words, pictures and
numbers.”
Tis pursuit sparked a tsunami of im-
migration that rushed to document all the
unique living things to be found in the new
world. Sadly, one price was to be paid by the
creatures themselves, as in the case of the
American passenger pigeon, of which Audu-
bon himself marveled: “Te air was literally
flled with Pigeons; the light of noon-day was
obscured as by an eclipse.”
“Te art certainly presented wildlife as a
means to drive economic investment in the
New World,” Wagner said. “And art did play a
role in the demise in what had been.”
Wagner’s book documents for the frst
time the history and contemporary impact
of American wildlife art. Its manuscript grew
out of his 1992 PhD dissertation and its 395
pages represents but one-third of his total re-
search on the topic. He shows that up until the
1850s, wildlife art had largely been something
of a pursuit for the wealthy.
These three mallard drakes illustrate the evolution of carving from simple decoys to pieces of art.
(Clockwise from right) The winner of the 1948 National Decoy Makers Contest, this sleeping mallard
by Lem Ward showcases the sculptural aspects of decoy carving; left, this handsome gunning stool
from 1951 is typical of the Ward brothers’ working decoys; center, the standing mallard by Lem Ward
from 1952 takes the full leap into a decorative art form.

Four years ago, Gary Guyette sold a
decoy of an A.E. Crowell black bellied
plover for $830,000, setting a new world
record. To put that value in perspective,
the sale price of the Crowell decoy is but a
fraction of the $120 million worth of de-
coys and assorted wildlife art the Guyette
& Schmidt frm has sold during the past
25 years.
Guyette & Schmidt, Inc. (www.guyet-
teandschmidt.com) is the world’s largest
antique decoy auction frm. Tey hold
three large-scale decoy auctions per year
in St. Charles, Ill.; Portland, Maine; and
Easton, Md., specializing in antique duck,
shorebird, and fsh decoys, fsh carvings,
waterfowl paintings and prints, duck calls
and ammunition advertising. Guyette said
the decoy market is just now emerging
from a three-year downturn that afected
the price paid at auction, but did noth-
ing to hamper the interest in important
decoys.
“Tings went up steadily and the frst
time I noticed something was happening
was in our 2007 auction,” he told Antique
Trader. “Te prices just started to sofen
a little. It was still a record year for us but
by the late fall it had gone down – maybe
20 percent, which is not as bad as in other
areas.”
Guyette said the dip in prices was a
result of decoy dealers not being able to
turn inventory as fast as expected. Prices
remain high for top quality decoys at their
sales because the frm fnds rare examples
in excellent condition; and roughly 90
percent of all lots are bought by collectors.
Collectors and investors also are holding
onto pieces in anticipation of the market
improving.
Te collections coming to market are
more likely those of people who must
sell to settle an estate or bring closure to
a recent death. Such is the case with Guy-
ette and Schmidt’s April 22-23 sale of the
Joseph French collection at the Pheasant
Run Resort in St. Charles, Ill.
Te frm has a standing agreement with
art auctioneer Christie’s, to create a strate-
gic association to maket and promote the
decoy market. Guyette said esteem and
respect for decoys as art is also a result
of educational programs taking place at
institutions such as the Ward Museum of
Waterfowl Art in Salisbury, Md.
“We had a small auction in March in
Ohio and we’re seeing decoys sell almost
at their high estimate,” Guyette said, “so
we’re seeing some positive indicators.
We’re seeing some things happen.”

NORTHPORT, Ala. – A monumental set of four matching
American Gothic bookcases, beautifully crafed in Philadelphia in
1854 and attributed to the workshop of Crawford Riddell, a noted
cabinetmaker of the time, sold for $115,000 at a multi-estate sale
held Mar. 13 by Hal Hunt Auctions. Te sale was conducted in the
frm’s gallery, at 5925 Hwy. 43N in Northport.
Te bookcases – by far the top achiever in a sale that saw 475
quality lots cross the block – were originally built for the library of
the Annandale Plantation in Madison County, Miss. Annandale
burned to the ground in 1924 and in 1932 the bookcases were
purchased by Col. Robert Bogardus Snowden and his wife, Annie,
who installed them in their home in Memphis.
Te only sof spot in the sale, observed Hal Hunt, was Belter
furniture, which did not fetch top dollar. “An example was a gor-
geous Victori-
an etagere that
went for an
unbelievably
low $4,600
– about half
its real value,”
he said, add-
ing, “But
that’s what
made this
such a great
sale. Te high
end prevailed
but there were
still some
bargains. Ev-
erybody went
home happy.”
Following
are additional
highlights
from the sale. All prices quoted include a 15 percent buyer’s pre-
mium.
Beds and bedroom suites really wowed the crowd. A three-
piece walnut Renaissance bedroom suite with bronze plaques,
attributed to Tomas Brooks, hit $34,500; an oversized Renais-
sance bed with marquetry inlay and bronze plaques, attributed
to G. Herter, climbed to $33,925; and a two-piece burled walnut
Victorian bedroom suite found a new owner for $13,225.

April 28, 2010 • ANTIQUE TRADER 19
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Two days
before he killed himself, the undercover
informant in a federal sting targeting
looted Southwestern artifacts told a friend
he felt responsible for the suicides of two
defendants, according to police reports
released April 1.
Ted Gardiner told the friend he was
upset over his involvement in the case and
felt like he’d been “thrown to the curb,’’ ac-
cording to records released by the Unifed
Police Department at the request of Te
Associated Press.
Te sting eventually led to charges
against 26 people for allegedly stealing and
traf cking in American Indian relics taken
illegally from public and tribal lands.
Two people, including a prominent
southern Utah doctor, committed suicide
last June shortly afer the indictments were
announced. Police were called to Gar-
diner’s home in Holladay on Feb. 27 afer
reports that he was threatening to take his
own life. A friend who came to his aid told
investigators that Gardiner was suicidal,
saying over and again that he was “done.’’
Te friend, a woman Gardiner met at
Alcoholics Anonymous years earlier, told
police that the 52-year-old informant said
he was rattled by the suicides in the case,
believing he had “killed two people.’’
A woman who called 911 that night
from his house told a dispatcher Gardiner
had a gun and was threatening suicide.
Gardiner was taken to a hospital for a
mental health evaluation and released the
next morning. Police were called to Gar-
diner’s house the next day by a roommate
who said Gardiner was again suicidal and
brandishing a gun.
An of cer reported seeing Gardiner
kneeling with his head on a bed and a gun
in his hand. At one point, Gardiner point-
ed the gun at his own head, according to
the reports. Te of cer, who had his gun
drawn, told Gardiner to drop his weapon.
“You’re gonna have to do what you have
to do,’’ Gardiner replied.
Te of cer said that when Gardiner
swung the gun in his direction, he fred a
shot that missed as he backed out of Gar-
diner’s bedroom. Gardiner shot himself in
the head a short time later.
Gardiner, a former antiquities dealer
and grocery chain CEO, worked under-
cover for the FBI and the U.S. Bureau of
Land Management for more than two
years. He wore a wire and transmitted live
video and audio signals to federal agents
who monitored his transactions with a
cast of dealers and collectors in Western
states.
He eventually struck deals for more
than 250 artifacts worth more than
$335,000. He was typically paid around
$7,500 a month.
Of the 26 defendants, four have
pleaded guilty. Trials for the others are
scheduled for later this year.

20 ANTIQUE TRADER • April 28, 2010
MATTHEWS, N.C. – An exceedingly rare 1899
United Metal Cartridge Company factory bullet
board in excellent condition sold for $11,769 in an
Internet and catalog auction that ended Mar. 20-21
by SoldUSA.com. It was the frst of two variations
and the rarer variety, better known as the “Elk
Scene” board. It was also the top achiever of the
more than 1,200 items sold.
“With the implementation of new proprietary
sofware, the site saw record attendance for what
was a fantastic overall auction,” said Chris Roberts,
president of SoldUSA.com. “We had over 2.1 mil-
lion hits in the fnal two days, with over 3,500 dif-
ferent bidders. Te sale focused mainly on hunting,
advertising and militaria, and we saw high prices
posted across the board.”
Te UMC bullet board was housed in a very
fne original frame and its pictures showed the
great condition of the lithograph (no damage, no
fading, no missing paper). Te back was in original
condition and the primer box was totally original,

ing 42 inches by 54 1/2 inches.
Following are additional highlights from the
sale. All prices quoted include a 13 percent buyer’s
premium.
A Winchester vertical banner poster, featuring
‘Te Cougar’ and pictured in the Winchester Rarities
book, page 49, soared to $7,278. Te poster mea-
sured 10 1/2 inches by 63 1/2 inches, with a snow-
fake band at the bottom. It featured a graphic of a
cougar on a snow-covered limb, staring directly at
the viewer. It showed some routine wear but the col-
ors were brilliant. A 1902 Winchester lithographed
double “W” cartridge board, looking like the 1897
version but without any actual cartridges, went for
$6,526. Te cartridges were head stamped “Win-
chester 1901,” hence the reason WRACo. issued this
board just a few years afer the 1897 model.

CHICAGO – Hundreds of people hur-
ried under their umbrellas to be the frst
shoppers through the door at the 2010
20-30-40 Glass Society of Illinois’ Glass-
O-Rama Show and Sale, March 13-14.
Dealers wrapped customers’ purchases
non-stop for hours as the “collectors on
a mission” busily wrote checks for their
newly acquired treasures.
Te March Glass Sale and Show is a na-
tionally known major event to promote the
educational goals of Te 20-30-40s Glass
Society of Illinois, a not-for-proft group.
Te society’s charge is to gain more knowl-
edge of American glassware of the 1920s,
’30s, and ’40s and to further the preserva-
tion and pleasure of collecting glassware.
Business was brisk throughout the
whole weekend. Shoppers focked to the
booths of nationally known dealers such
as Laurie Kitchen and Early Fenton Rari-
ties author Tomas K. Smith of Tomas K.
Antiques. First time visiting dealers to the
20-30-40s show included Te Cat’s Meow
and Net-Tiques.
Te 20-30-40s Glass Club widened its
focus and invited dealers of American glass
made earlier than traditionally featured
Depression and Elegant Depression glass.
New nationally known dealers Danny Cor-
nelius and Don Jones, authors of the books
American Pattern Glass Table Sets and
Early American Pattern Glass Cake Stands
and Serving Pieces brought hard-to-fnd
examples of early American glass.
Te show featured the return of noted art
glass expert Charles Lotton of Crete, Ill. A

ited several pieces of his art glass in celebra-
tion of his 40th anniversary in his craf.
Another glass crafsperson was new

of one of the show’s many jewelry dealers. Adam said
he was “pleased in the diversity of quality antiques and
collectibles featured at the show.” Wide is a Christmas
tree jewelry buyer with over 3,500 sparkling treasures in
his collection and counting. He is defnitely planning to
return to the states for the next show.
We encountered another long time shopper, Tomas
Lyons of North Jersey. Tomas has been coming to
the Atlantique City shows for more than 12 years. He
focuses his purchasing on whistles for his ever-growing
collection. He has always looked forward to the show
and was happy to fnd a lot of familiar dealer faces this
year, including ones from England. Tomas enjoys
searching for whistles, anvils, and other smalls through
the hundreds of table top displays found at the show.
Tomas also noted that he felt that the quality dealers
keep coming back to the show even with the change in
promotion companies.
Joann Cooper of Drums, Pa., loves the vintage jewelry
and the vintage kitchenware she fnds at the show. “I
always get and education on antiques every time I come to
this show,” she said.
Shoppers, Joyce Long and daughter Hillary, both of
Mechanicsburg, Pa., had missed the last four or fve shows
afer being regulars for more than 20 years and wanted to
see what changes were being made. Joyce is a jewelry and
primitive buyer and her daughter Hillary is always looking
for vintage sand pails. “We found a wonderful variety of
antiques!” Joyce raved and noted that most all dealers were
very pleasant and helpful as compared to other shows they
regularly attend.
“Tis show was always fun and this new show’s format
looks to be continuing the tradition,” Joyce
Long said.
Returning dealers included Bob Adams
and his son Sterling of You Ain’t Seen Nothing
Yet Antiques from New Haven, Conn. Tey
specialize in vintage carnival and arcade
games and related unique “fun” memorabilia
from the 20th century. Bob was pleased
with the way the show was going. He was
impressed by the cleanliness and prompt
attention to dealer requests as well as the
Top, a selection of vintage to Mid Century
Modern items on sale by Depression Obsessions.

Soldier collection stored for 50 years
fnally comes to auction
PITTSBURGH – Don Tomp-
son and his late brother, Bill, hailed
from Chicago and began collecting
toy soldiers at a young age.
In 1947, the Tompsons
moved to California, and the
expansive collection made the
journey, as well. Tere on the
West Coast, the cherished toys
remained in storage until 2009, when they
were unwrapped to be assessed for auction
purposes.
Teir collection will live again as part
of Old Toy Soldier Auctions’ 655-lot sale
of top-quality fgures, May 1. Tis sale is
headlined by the Bill and Don Tompson
collection and includes part III of the John
Graham collection, with various other
select properties from additional private
consignors.
“Te fgures had been exquisitely
packed in cotton, and over half a century
later, the condition is still just amazing,”
said Ray Haradin, owner of Old Toy Sol-
dier Auctions, said of the Tompson col-
lection. “While some of the sets may not
be extraordinarily rare, they are the types
of sets that were very popular with kids of

their era, and the Tompson broth-
ers took great care of them.”
Te majority of items from the
Tompson collection, which comprise ap-
proximately 120 lots in the auction, date
primarily to the 1930s and the height of
Britains’ so-called “Whistock era.” As
Haradin explained, “Whistock was an il-
lustrator for Britains who did much of the
graphic design for the labels and boxes of
that period.”
Featured items from the Tompson
collection include a Britains Set #12
– the 11th Hussars (estimate $250-$350),
a fabulous Set #93, which is a large Brit-
ish Army display containing 71 pieces
($2,500-$3,500); and an example of Set 89,
a 30-piece Cameron Highlanders display
set with of cers and pipers ($600-$700).
“Tese three sets exemplify the many near-
mint, prewar Britains military sets to be auc-
tioned in this sale,” said Haradin.
Civilian-fgure highlights include a Moult-
oy Little Red Riding Hood set in its original
box, and an array of approximately 30 Ver-
tunni fgures, most of which depict members
of the French royal court.
A West Coast consignor was the source of
75 lots of desirable Courtenay knights, whose
various individual estimates range from $150
at the low end to $800 at the top. “All of the
fgures in this grouping were purchased new
in the 1950s and have been kept in wonder-
ful condition. Also, many of the fgures hold
banners, which is especially appealing to col-
lectors,” Haradin noted.
Other noteworthy lots include a Hafner
Frederick the Great set and a nice assortment
of Astra and Britains artillery pieces.

dy” collectors will have an opportunity to bid on many rare
and exceptional pieces. Another Iowa collector, the late Bill
Powers, focused on many things, including automotive items,
toys, juke boxes and coin-operated machines. Collectors will
surely fnd his style and eclectic interests make for a fun auc-
tion. Nebraska collector, the late Gene Smith, spent a lifetime
assembling one of the strongest collections of popcorn tins in
America. His collection, featured in the AAAA newsletter in
2001, includes over 300 tins, many among the rarest.
Te auction includes over 1,100 lots. Among
the highlights is a “Girl Skipping Rope Mechanical
Bank.” A coin activates the bank’s clockwork mecha-
nism which assists the girl in moving up and down
and turning her head while she skips rope. Intricately
cast, this is an impressive mechanical bank in excel-
lent condition. Tere are also a number of other cast
iron toys and mechanical banks. Other toys include
early Lehman windups and toys by Wyandotte, Marx
and others. Te cast iron toys include motorcycles.
Te 9-inch Harley-Davidson patrol motorcycle with
sidecar and riders is one of the favorites. Te piece has
excellent original paint and decal. Cowboy and West-
ern collectors will have a substantial selection of toy
cap guns and other Western Cowboy character pieces.
And if the auction activity gets over heated, collectors
can buy one of several rare alcohol fans. Tese unusual
devices burn alcohol and use the heat to drive a bladed
fan. And if it’s not warm enough, there are two im-
maculately restored circa 1900 base burner stoves.
Te frst auction on May 1-2, at the Riverside Ca-
sino, will have approximately 1,100 lots. Te second
auction in Prescott (Dewey), Ariz., is on Memorial Day
weekend. Selling will start at noon on Friday, May 28,
with about 800 uncataloged lots selling in two rings. Te

30 ANTIQUE TRADER • April 28, 2010
COLOGNE, Germany – Following a
highly successful Photographica auction,
which achieved a 93 percent sale rate last
month, the second installment of the year
at Auction Team Breker promises to be
one of the most fascinating sales to date.
A rare Märklin ‘Hexenhäuschen’ or
Gingerbread Cottage, estimated to sell for
$50,000 to $80,000, is the leitmotif of the
sale. An optical instrument as well as a su-
perb toy, this is a house with a hidden se-
cret: the roof lifs of, revealing a turntable
for kaleidoscopic patterns to be viewed
through a prism in the chimney. A drawer
in the base contains the colored celluloid
fakes, cut paper scraps and pieces of lace
placed there by the original owner almost
100 years ago. Te Gingerbread Cottage
is listed as No. 8880 in the 1909 Märklin
catalog, which describes the toy as a magic
mirror and suggests moss, colored cotton
balls and dead insects as possible speci-
mens for the kaleidoscope. Te delicate
design must have contributed to the low
survival rate, as the Gingerbread Cottage
being ofered in May is the only ex-
ample known today. It
is preserved in near-
mint unplayed-with
condition.
Te auction fea-
tures a wonderful se-
lection of tin vehicles,
from the sedate to
the sensational. An
elegant 1902 Bing
Phaeton, estimated to
sell for $16,000 to $25,000,
pits comfort against speed
in the form of a 1905 Günthermann
“Coupé Gordon Bennet” racer,
estimated to sell between $26,000
and $50,000. A 1910 Ernst Plank
Monoplane commemorates Louis
Blériot’s daring frst cross-chan-
nel fight, estimated at $2,000 to $3,000,
while an Aeronautical Carousel by Müller
& Kadeder of Nuremberg paints a more
light-hearted picture of early 20th cen-
tury aviation, estimated to sell for between
$4,000 and $5,000.
Highlights include a number of fne
English engineering models such as the
Royal Chester, a 1 1/2-inch scale trac-
tion engine built from plans by W.J.
Hughes, estimated to sell for $8,000 to
$10,000.
Te English watch-maker Charles
Tansley created a series of four remark-
able working models for public display
at the Midland Fine Arts and Industrial
Exhibition in the 1870s. Inspired by the
sights of his native city Coventry, Tans-
ley’s themes included industry, racing
and the new popular music. His model
of a “Beam Steam Engine,” estimated
to sell for $13,000 to $20,000) is con-
structed of lacquered brass, with sturdy
turned pillars and delicate tracery fnials
drawn from Victorian Gothic Revival
architecture. Six enamel dials act as a
register that counts the number of coins
deposited by denomination. Dropping an
old English penny into the slot brings the
pistons, gears and fywheel to life, while
a hidden bell chimes four times. A half-
penny delivers the same performance, but
for half the time, and the bell only chimes
twice. So reliable was the register consid-
ered that, according to the description on
the marquee, it would accurately record
up to 100,000 pennies.

In The News
BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) – Being commander
of the Catholic War Veterans Post 370 on Illinois
159 south of Belleville hasn’t been particularly
trying for Mike Anthony – until they found the
machine gun. “I thought it was a beautiful relic
but I wondered what we could do with it,” An-
thony said.
What they had was a Lewis .30-caliber ma-
chine gun, manufactured in 1917 by the Savage
Arms Co. in Utica, N.Y., according to markings
on the gun. A few years ago it had been found in
the Quonset hut where the post stores its grass-
cutting equipment, but was moved inside. Afer
that, apparently everyone assumed it had been
gotten rid of.
So Anthony went online and did some re-
search that disturbed him. “I found out it was il-
legal to have it,’’ he said. “Not only that but there
was a $250,000 fne and 10 years in prison.”
Some guys thought maybe they could give it
back to the Savage company, which wanted it for
its museum. But that isn’t legal either. Instead,
Sherif Mearl Justus was able to take it of their
hands, legally. But the sherif’s department’s
options are limited as well.
“We can register it and keep it, we can ...
have it melted down or we can give it to the
ATF (Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and
Explosive) and it will be destroyed,’’ said Sgt.
John Fulton, administrative assistant with the
St. Clair County Sherif’s Department.
Fulton said the department is trying to fg-
ure out what to do with the gun. Fulton said
pictures of the gun are posted on www.fickr.
com/photos/thebadge and he is getting some
information about the gun from collectors and
enthusiasts, but he wonders whether anyone
local knows where it came from and how it got
to the Catholic War Vets.

Sherif to decide fate of WWI machine gun
Found in a closet at a Catholic War Vets headquarters, this Lewis
.30 caliber machine gun from 1917 is now a headache for Sheriff
Mearl Justus.

JACKSON HOLE, Wyo. – A veritable snapshot of wildlife
roaming the American frontier in the early 1830s, Swiss artist
Karl Bodmer’s detailed feld studies made while accompany-
ing German naturalist Prince Maximilian zu Wied on an ex-
pedition up the Missouri River will be on display in the new
exhibition Karl Bodmer’s Western Wildlife: Original Sketches
from the Joslyn Art Museum at
the National Museum of Wild-
life Art in Jackson Hole, May 8
through Aug. 29, 2010.
A contemporary of George
Catlin’s – and like Catlin, best
known for his early portraits
of American Indians – Bod-
mer (Switzerland, 1809-1893)
was one of the frst European
artists to explore and sketch
the American West before the
advent of white settlement.
Te combination of his beau-
tifully rendered drawings and
Maximilian’s scientifc obser-
vations created a body of work
of unique historical, scientifc
and aesthetic importance. A
complementary exhibition
showcasing selections from Bodmer and Maximilian’s book,
Travels in the Interior of North America: Etchings by Karl Bod-
mer, will also be on display May 8 through Oct. 17.
Over the course of the Missouri River expedition from
1832-1834, Bodmer produced fnely executed and incredibly
precise studies of a wide variety of animals, birds and reptiles.
Sometimes drawn from the wild and presented in natural
habitat, sometimes rendered from creatures shot as speci-
mens, Bodmer’s wildlife sketches are both a valuable record
of the journey and some of the earliest depictions of North
American animals to be seen in the Eastern United States and
Europe.

In the 1850s cheaper printing methods made the art accessible
to the middle class. Wildlife art became less about scholarly illus-
tration and more about depicting the average hunting camp. Tat’s
when a 39-year-old New York publisher, Nathaniel Currier, hired
his brother-in-law, James Ives, to launch a company advertised as
“Print-Makers to the American People.” At frst the Currier & Ives
company focused on sporting and hunting art in subscription form.
Te hardscrabble life of the early American was easing and hunting
and fshing took on less of an importance for survival than it did for
sport and leisure.
In this era artists such as Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait (1819-1905),
William Ranney (1813-1857) and William Harnett (1848-1892)
celebrated the outdoors as a resource to
be relished. One sculptor in particular,
Edward Kemeys (1843-1907), has the
distinction of being the frst major fg-
ure in American wildlife art to be born
in the United States. Kemeys found
patrons for his sculptures of mountain
lions for New York’s Central Park and
the iconic lions guarding the entry to
Chicago’s Art Institute.
By the dawn of the 20th century
artist Carl Rungius (1869-1959) had
begun honing a unique approach to de-
picting big game and sporting scenes.
Afer Audubon, who was larger than
life, no one emerged to take his place,”
Wagner said. “Tere was a vacuum.

wildlife art of the late 19th
century, this 1885 oil on canvas

Tait was hugely popular, as was Currier and
Ives. With Rungius, his images had the subject
of sportsmen but rendered from the prespec-
tive of an artist. America was just learning
about Impressionism and Modernism. Run-
gius’ paintings were large and he used color
to achieve his Impressionism. It was chunkier
and used diferent types of color.”
Te style of Louis Agassiz Fuertes, a con-
temporary of Rungius, is steeped in Audubon’s
scientifc rendering with a mix of human-like
emotions to his subjects. “His wood ducks al-
most smile at you in a folksy way. He wanted
to know the inner self of the animal,” Wagner
said.
Rungius’ and Fuertes’ work modernized
American wildlife painting and established
it as a legitimate profession. It also created a
standard of excellence throughout the 20th
century, according to Wagner.
Te 20th century exploded with a prolifera-
tion of wildlife art. From the National Wildlife
Federation to the Federal Duck Stamp Com-
petition, the oversupply of limited edition
collectible prints to car companies naming
products afer the Cougar, the Mustang and
the Ram, wildlife art touches every aspect of
our collective modern popular culture.
By the late 20th century, painter Robert
Bateman had become America’s most infuen-
tial living wildlife artist, Wagner said, because
his aesthetic was purposefully integrated with
ecological ideology and the enterprise of pub-
lishing. His painting Mossy Branches – Spotted
Owl was released as a limited edition print in
1990 by Mill Pond Press. Te edition of 4,500
prints sold out within a month of its release
– during the height of an efort to preserve
land in the Pacifc Northwest to protect the
endangered spotted owl.
What does the future of American wildlife
art hold?
“I can make one prediction,” Wagner said.
“New heroes will jump out and will become
icons in their own right,” he said. “It won’t be
a one-shot phenomenon. It’s going to be an
artist with a whole body of work. Someone
will come out and be the next James Audubon
or Robert Bateman, someone with a signature
style.”
Until then art afcionados, and the animals,
will wait.

42 ANTIQUE TRADER • April 28, 2010
Dowels are the most commonly used joining devices in most
19th and virtually all 20th century furniture and as such must be
dealt with on a regular basis as part of furniture repair and resto-
ration.
Dowels were not always the choice of furniture crafsmen be-
cause of the dif culty in manufacturing them in a pre-industrial
revolution environment since dowels,
to be useful, must be perfectly round
and completely uniform in large num-
bers. Te most common joint prior to
1830 was the mortise and tenon joint,
a tongue on one piece of wood (the
tenon) that fts into a slot (the mortise)
that was drilled or carved into the other
piece of wood. It was sometimes even
further secured by the use of a peg that
pierced both pieces of wood (see illus-
tration). However, this peg should not
be confused with the modern dowel
since it was diferent in both form and
function. Te peg was generally hand
carved and was ofen purposefully ir-
regular to give it gripping power. It was
not the main element of the joint but
was only there as part of the support-
ing cast and most mortise and tenon
joints do not have a peg.
In pre-Civil War construction,
dowels came into use very early with
the advent of machinery. What most machines do well is convert
energy into circular motion and dowels are a natural adaptation of
this trait, a round wooden pin produced to ft in a round hole and
each one the same as the last. Early dowels were made of maple
and were smooth with no ridges. Typical 18th century furniture
construction used 7/16-inch dowels in virtually all joints and this
technique was the norm through the turn of the 20th century.
Early in the 20th century, with increasing factory production
and the advent of resin glues, the venerable hundred-year-old
dowel underwent several major changes. Te main ingredient of
the dowel went from maple to birch, it added spirals for better
glue distribution within the hole and its size was reduced from
7/16 to 3/8 inch in diameter. With the exception of using grooves
instead of spirals to facilitate installation with a pneumatic “dowel
gun,” the current dowel has remained unchanged this century and
little change is foreseen.
Of course there are other size dowels and they are manufac-
tured from almost any wood available, most commonly oak, wal-
nut, maple and cherry, but these are primarily for custom work
and special situations. Te norm in manufactured furniture is
birch, with a 3/8 inch diameter and 1 1/2 to 2 inches in length.
Te most common malady of a dowel joint is just plain old
being loose. In this case, open the joint carefully with a mallet, in-
spect the dowels to make sure they are not cracked, scrape or drill
old glue out of the holes using an 11/32 drill bit (1/32 smaller than
the hole), scrape old glue of the faces of the joint using a fat chisel
and use a small rasp to gently remove old glue from the dowels.
Once the joint has been cleared of
old glue, apply fresh glue in the
holes, on the dowels and on the
faces and clamp the joint securely,
cleaning up excess glue with a wet
rag. Tat was easy.
Dealing with a cracked or bro-
ken dowel is slightly more dif cult.
If the dowel is merely cracked you
might be tempted to just reglue and
let it go – but don’t. You’ll end up
fxing it twice. If it is cracked or
broken of it must be replaced. Re-
moval of the broken piece is usually
the most dif cult part here. Try to
pull it out if possible. If it was poor-
ly constructed to start with and has
little glue you might get lucky and
remove the whole thing intact; it’s
not likely, but possible. You also
might try inserting a screw into the
face of the dowel and pulling on the
screw with a claw hammer. Again
the chance of success is very small but give it a shot. If that fails
you must drill it out. Cut the dowel fush with the face of the joint.
Don’t try to drill through a protruding stub. If at all possible put the
piece in a vise or in the jaws of your Workmate to free both hands
for operating the drill. Use a new, very sharp 3/8 bit and let the bit
do the work. In other words: don’t pressure the drill, let the bit pull
in. If you are unsure of exactly which way the dowel runs in order
to drill it, remember that the dowel is almost always at a 90-degree
angle to the face of the joint.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) – If the
$45,000 Bosendorfer grand piano in the
living room doesn’t interest you, the air-
conditioned doghouse just might.
Tese are just two of the things that re-
main from the previous owner of this year’s
Decorators’ ShowHouse, a 10-acre Vestavia
Hills estate on Longleaf Street.
Tat owner? Former HealthSouth Chief
Executive Richard Scrushy, who is in a federal
prison in Texas afer a 2006 conviction for brib-
ery in a government political corruption case.
Te 18,000-square-foot home with four chim-
neys also has three laundry rooms, fve interior
staircases, an elevator and a kitchen with two
stainless steel, commercial-grade refrigerators,
three ovens and two stainless-steel dishwashers.
“I can truthfully say this is one house you
don’t want to miss,’’ said Nan Teninbaum,
Decorators’ ShowHouse spokeswoman.
Te ShowHouse, sponsored by the Sym-
phony Volunteer Council to raise money
for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, will
be open until May 2.
Nearly 40 decorators have worked on
35 spaces in the home to prep it for public
viewing, outftting them with new furniture
and accessories.
Te home and everything inside it is for
sale. Te house is on the market for $4.7
million. Tat price tag does not include fur-
nishings. Scrushy bought the home afer his
wife attended the 1989 Decorators’ Show-
House, which was held there. Published
reports from that time show the house was
$1.1 million.

Attendance and sales of moderately priced pieces were
steady and even big ticket items were selling better than they
had in a long time, including a Cambridge Ebony cocktail
shaker with silver decoration in the Sportsman’s line that sold
at Patty Ann’s Glassware for $1,150. Ann also ofered several
stems of Tif n La Fountaine in the rare early Twilight color,
which were tagged at $180 each.
Matt Peacock of Double M Antiques and Uniques exhib-
ited several ebony pieces with striking gold encrustation. Pea-
cock reported his most popular pieces were his Cambridge
Statuesque line stems. Tis was easily evidenced by the crowd
that one of his nude cocktails glasses attracted because of its
rare color combination of a Crown Tuscan foot and a wheel-
cut Gold Kystol bowl. Opaque glass was featured in the booth
of dealer Don Rogers, who brought several pieces in primrose
and opal.
General glass dealers also reported steady sales. Lo-
rie Kitchen noted that no pattern in particular was “hot,”
however, people were eagerly seeking and buying items for
established collections. Dealers Depression Classics had a
huge collection of Princess pieces in green, including an
oval bowl at $25, a dinner plate at $22 and a covered butter
at $75. Te booth also featured Miss America as their pink
pattern.
Kitchen Cupboard’s booth featured a Jeanette Jr. Cherry
Blossom 14-piece child’s tea set packaged in the original mint
condition box for sale for $310. Te dealer also carried a large
assortment of carnival pieces including a green carnival Stag
and Holly bowl marked $60.
Many dealers expanded their sales base by displaying
complementary items such as period linens, dinnerware, and
kitchenware. For example, Kitschycat Collectibles displayed
a line of assorted Depression era glass rolling pins, priced at
$95 for a milk glass example and progressing to a cobalt blue
example for $295. Pieces of Homer Laughlin vintage Fiesta
and Harlequin were selling well.
Fenton items were also in good supply at several booths.
Tere was a virtual rainbow of “crests” on display, from
Silvercrest to Snowcrest and all colors in between. Author
Tom Smith gathered a crowd eyeing his gorgeous Fenton
Hyacinth Feather vase by Robert Barber. As one of only 450
pieces made, it was sure to appreciate beyond its $695 price
tag at the show.

were meant to be played with and to fnd a
papier mache in near mint condition is al-
most unheard of. To remain in this condi-
tion, this doll had to have been a treasured
possession of its owner.
With dolls more easily available today
because of Internet access, serious collec-
tors do not have to settle for less than they
are looking for. We cannot all collect the
very high end French and German dolls,
but we can seek out the best that we can
aford. Recently, I was brought a pair of
Herm Steiner ethnic dolls. To many, these
would not be too exciting. Tey are fairly
common and their price is usually under
$100, but these two were exceptions. Te
pair is 10 inches tall with Dutch outfts,
hats and wooden shoes. Teir eyes open
and close and they are still tied in their
original gif boxes. Tey have never been
removed from their boxes and we can only
wonder why. Perhaps they were a souvenir
from a trip or a gif to a child that was too
old to play with dolls. No matter, they were
worth the wait. Tey were inexpensive but
they are the best example one could have
of this German doll.
Antique dolls can be wonderful invest-
ments but condition is very, very impor-
tant. It is “worth the wait” to try to fnd
the best example available. In the early
days when dolls were thought to be very
scarce, we accepted more imperfection;
but with more choices available to us, it is
important to try to buy what is “right.” Be-
ware of repaint, damage and replacement
parts. Vintage clothing and shoes add to
the value and should be considered. Know
who you are buying from and establish a
rapport. Always ask questions and read,
read, read.
A great doll is “Worth the Wait.”

Te faces are the things that are cut on
angles with dowels installed on the square.
Be very careful when you drill and you can
feel the diference if you are not drilling
straight. Te grain of the dowel is running
in the same direction as your drill bit. Te
grain of the main piece runs in a diferent
direction and you can feel it if you wander.
You will also feel the end of the old dowel
when you hit bottom since there usually is
a bit of air and old glue at the end of the
dowel. You will hear the slight “crunch”
of the dried glue as your bit cuts it. While
drilling, check your work frequently to
make sure you are lined up with the old
dowel and make directional corrections as
you go. Trial and error and experience are
the best tools here, but patience goes a long
way too. Don’t get discouraged. If you miss
the hole badly and end up with a sloppy ft,
just drill it out to the next size commonly
available dowel and continue on.
Dowel sizing can be a real problem be-
cause, like lumber, dowels aren’t always the
size claimed. For example, most long birch
dowels commonly carried in hardware
stores are undersized by 1/64 to as much
as 1/16 of an inch. Tat doesn’t sound like
much, but even 1/64 under will make a
sloppy joint. If you must buy long dowels,
measure them with calipers frst and if
necessary, buy a drill bit to match the size
of the dowel. Long dowels from oak, maple
or walnut are generally true size and the 1
1/2- and 2-inch spiral or grooved manu-
factured dowels are always right, so if you
have access to them – even if you have to
buy in quantity – you are better of. Be-
sides, this won’t be the last thing you ever
repair. Good luck.

professionalism shown by Allison and
the JMK staf towards the dealers and his
customers.
Bob told us that he “wouldn’t be
surprised if the show doubles in size
next year” based on the feedback he was
getting from fellow dealers and shopping
dealers in attendance. Bob added, “People
respond to quality. Blue chip brings the
people in.”
Ziggy and Roberta Zygarlowski of
Roberta’s Dollhouse, Patterson, N.J.,
were also dealers in attendance at the
show. Tey have fve years of showing at
Atlantique City under their belt. “Tis
was a fantastic show. We had lots of new
customers come fnd us from hearing
about us in articles they saw in Antique
Doll Collector Magazine and Doll News,”
where they were featured. “Tis show
is such easy set up with the convenient
drive in. Tis is a showman’s ideal place.
If all shows were like this it would be
great!” Ziggy said.
Tey are planning to be set up at the
next show as well. Maxx (the couple’s
friendly dealer dog) had no comment, but
rolled over for a belly rub.
All three plan to return next year
when the show will be a week earlier,
March 19-20, 2011.

46 ANTIQUE TRADER • April 28, 2010
DENVER, Pa. – In what will be one
of the company’s largest sales to date,
Dan Morphy Auctions will ofer 3,000

Among many other featured categories,
the auction will also contain 300 lots of

250 examples of fne and decorative art, 70
lots of napkin rings, part III of the Pat and
Lowell Wagner steam toy/steam engine

of rare occupational shaving mugs. Ad-
ditionally, the toy section will incorporate
70 dolls, 30 mechanical banks and 300 lots
of early Mattel Hot Wheels vehicles – one

and appraiser Oumar Keinde. Keinde
confrmed that all of the art in the sale
was carved in Africa and is geared mostly
toward entry-level buyers or those who
wish to decorate their homes or of ces
with collectible original tribal art. “Tese
items are mostly from the period between
1950 and the late 20th century, and are
known as ‘original replacements.’ If they
were the early originals, they would cost
30 to 50 times as much and would be in
museums. While the items in the auction
are primarily meant to be decorative, they
are still original African artworks and are
very collectible.”
A grouping of timepieces is led by a
circa-1870 French bronze enamel clock,
$2,500 to $3,500; and a large octagonal
time-and-strike clock, $2,000 to $3,000.
Immediately following will be a lineup of
more than 40 music boxes plus a large se-
lection of cylinder boxes and phonographs
with original horns.
Next up will be lighting, featuring 15
slag-glass and 20 student lamps;
followed by a fne grouping of
more than 70 silver fgural napkin
rings.
Fine antique dolls await bidders
in the Spring Sale, among them a Jumeau
fashion poupee peau, estimated at $1,500
to $3,000.
A wide variety of antique advertising
will cross the auction block, including
approximately 100 complete sets of Eng-
lish tobacco collector cards, presented in
sheets and in near-mint-plus condition as
well as a large assortment of other tobac-
ciana items.
An occupational shaving mug col-
lection contains approximately 50 mugs,
many of which are featured in reference
books. Te centerpiece of the collection is
a mug that belonged to early 20th-century
athlete Ed Farrell, who played with the
Giants, Braves, Cardinals and Cubs before
leaving to earn his dental degree.

DALLAS – Collectors everywhere coveted the
striking and extremely rare Insert Movie Poster
for Fritz Lang’s groundbreaking 1927 sci-f clas-
sic Metropolis – from the collection of Metallica
guitarist Kirk Hammett – in the $1.27 million
Signature Movie Poster Auction at Heritage
Auctions March 19. In the end, however, it came
down to just two devoted collectors vying for
the cinematic treasure, which ultimately realized
a solid fnal price of $47,800. All prices include
19.5 percent buyer’s premium.
“Tis great poster is not only a wonderful
piece of flm history,” said Grey Smith, director
of movie posters, “it’s also a fabulous piece of
graphic art and well worthy of claiming the top
spot in this auction.”
Also from Hammett’s collection, a 1933
oversized Swedish version poster for RKO’s land-
mark King Kong realized $28,680 amidst some
spirited bidding. Te brilliant colors, amazing
action and a dominant image of Kong himself,
reminiscent of its American three sheet counter-
part, makes this rare poster especially beloved by
collectors of the giant ape, especially consider-
ing that it’s not likely to be seen at auction again
anytime soon.
Another poster that continues to see con-
siderable popularity is the Style B one sheet for
Columbia’s 1946 Gilda, featuring a resplendent
image of Rita Hayworth in her signature role as
the sensual spouse of an Argentinean crime lord.
Te poster brought $28,680.

Mistakes are nature’s way of telling
us we aren’t as smart as we think we are.
With every comeuppance we’re forced to
endure it teaches us a valuable if some-
times expensive lesson. But compared
with college, an education in the practical
school of buying, collecting and reselling
is a bargain. And the good thing is, we’ll
never make the same mistake twice. (Well,
yes we will.)
Tis particular column’s curriculum is
about things that seem to be something
they aren’t. Take the juicy vintage neck-
lace of pink and red glass glitz. It smacks
of, it looks like it could be … D&E. Tat’s
the New York fashion-jewelry house of
DeLizza & Elster (1947-90), a wholesale
manufacturer known for dazzling dé-
cor destined for women’s throats, wrists
and earlobes. D&E in fact designed and
created every kind of jewelry known to
womankind, from early dress clips to late
liquid silver to “Indian jewelry” (ofen pro-
claimed authentic Native American work
because it’s so well done). But its stock-
in-trade among collectors is elaborately
constructed crystal chains with art-glass
stones. In the vernacular, collectors rou-
tinely call this D&E product “Juliana,” a

1967-68 line, hoping to directly estab-
lish the company’s name in the retail
world. (It honored Julia – Frank and
brother Anthony’s mother – as well
as Anthony’s mother-in-law, Anna.)
Collectors are crazy for lavish
D&E. Te catch is, it’s unmarked and
was heavily copied. So how do you
know if it is or isn’t?
You ask Frank DeLizza himself. At
a time in life when many a former New
Yorker turned Floridian wants noth-
ing more pressing on their minds than
mixing cocktails the color of sunsets,
DeLizza, author of Memoirs of a Fashion
Jewelry Manufacturer, “verifes” at least
100 pieces a month. His imprimatur
can mean a considerable diference in
purchase or sale price (nobody wants no
stinking copies).
Foreign frms were especially good at
knocking of D&E delectables, reaching a
peak in the 1980s, when 75 of 100 stores
on Broadway might be selling repros. One
man insisted on buying DeLizza a drink
when he unexpectedly met him, because he
was so grateful for the popular jewelry he
was able to knock of and live handsomely.
Tere should be a better way to defni-
tively discern non-D&E than
constantly bugging the boss.

f our faux pas
thing is
likely
D&E.
Tese include fve-link
oval- or rectangular-bracelet
construction, puddled plating on
the reverse and open-backed skinny
navettes. But shouldn’t there be obvious
earmarks that, conversely, announce a “no”
in no uncertain terms?
Uh, no. DeLizza says he used every
color, every kind of material, so it’s only
through experience, what is and isn’t D&E,
by the jewelry’s lines, fow and dynamic.
He explains: “Tey could try to copy
everything about a piece, but they could
not get into our minds, our thoughts, and
copy those.” So, the bad news is, no mat-
ter how fetching or fashionable someone
might fnd this vintage jeweled necklace, it
can’t legitimately be called “Juliana.” Ergo,
the purchaser (that would be me) overpaid
for the necklace shown here, on a hunch.
Shell cameo, Gabriel the Archangel,
12k gold setting, early 1800s ...... $995
Shell cameo, St. Michael slaying the
devil/dragon, 10k gold setting, circa
1910 ............................................ $625
Shell cameo, young boy praying, 14k
gold setting, circa 1915 .............. $499
Hardstone (agate) cameo, small watch
fob, Elizabethan man, possibly Shake-
speare ........................................ $325
Cameo Male Sales
(I couldn’t get into DeLizza’s mind either,
evidently.) Also, because D&E produced
fgurals, and a snake pin I found “Easter
egg” stippled cabochons familiar in
D&E designs. I thought for sure it
was the real thing too.
Not.
“Anybody could buy those cabs
at H.S. Imports,” was DeLizza’s
unembellished retort. Te bottom
line: Buy “Juliana,” sure or not,
if you adore the adornment and
want it for yourself; but for resale,
you’d better be certain. As for the
vintage snake, that motif sizzles for
spring-summer 2010 styles, so it will
sell despite no D&Eness.
Next on our list is an antique shell
carving set in silver (shown at lef). Yes,
it’s a cameo. Yes, the portrait portrays
a man. If you personally love hardstone
dudes and want to gather up every glyptic
guy you spot for a collection, “man cams”
are rarer than the profusion of profled
ladies crowding carving’s landscape.
So what’s the snag? Cameo guru Kerry
Davidson of Camelot Cameos and An-
tiques broke the bad news to me: Tough
scarcer, male subjects are practically im-
possible to resell at a snazzy price. Nobody’s
coveting the XY chromosome in a cameo
role – unless he’s mythological (or maybe
famous and political, as with Lincoln). So,
even though the carving is nice, in perfect
condition, even though fne antique cam-
eos move fairly briskly, it won’t prove an
easy sale. Such situations call for a Plan B,
such as … ofering the fellow, decked out
in an academic robe-and-mortarboard, as
a gif for the upcoming college graduate.
On to the coiled chain with crystal
jewels (shown above, right), with simu-
lated pearls and pretend paté de verre (aka
molten glass). It’s not a necklace, no mat-
ter how many women tried wrapping it
around their clavicles. Alas, it is a belt, for-
merly the most common of fashion’s fn-
ishing touches – before thirsts developed
for Big Gulps and a hunger for Supersized
fries. Tese days the word “belt” can
prompt women to stampede away in hor-
ror. But this belt has a mark, YSL, so we
have to hold our horses. It’s an Yves Saint
Laurent creation, complete with Gripoix-
like green marbled resin in raised bezels,
lustrous faux pearls, and jazzy jeweled
buckle, not to mention the fact it looks
stunning cinching a simple black tunic.
Its value, therefore, must be weighed:
not a necklace; yes, a belt; but possessing
uncommon provenance and the pedigree
of a couture name. Te verdict is in: It
returned to the land of tiny waistlines,
France, at a sale price of $500. If born a
necklace, it would have sold in America
for up to 100 percent more.
Finally, as post-Olympic passion for
jadeite heats up and sale prices climb
north, building collections or buying for
resale will prove increasingly tempting.
It’s time for potentially interested parties
to wise way up, since the green earrings
you’re considering could be Chinese jade,
or nephrite, rather than Burmese jadeite.
It could even be that they’re serpentine
instead. Jade is a realm where mistakes are
less easily brushed of, whether buying for
yourself, or even worse, selling to someone
else. Tat misstep could make someone
sicker than a serious strain of Asian fu.

“I needed something to do, something more than staying
at the house,” she said. “I’ve had stores before so it just seemed
natural to try one here. It gives me something to look forward
to each day.”
Te store, located at 631 Franklin St., sells antiques and other
knick-knacks and gif items, but she also rents space to other
smaller antiques dealers. She sells refurbished furniture and acces-
sories, many of which she has repaired and refnished herself.
She said she can see beauty in things even when they are
broken or falling apart. Ofen she’ll stop on the side of the road
to pick up chairs, tables or other items that have been thrown
out because she knows there “is life lef in them.”
“I see past what it looks like,” she said. “People come in and
say ‘that was trash?’ afer I’m fnished, but I knew all along it
could be something pretty.”
Tompson said she had done “crafy-type projects” for more
than 60 years, and in her store she just gets to display the work.
On top of running the day-to-day operations, she also makes
one-of-a-kind draperies, bedding and upholsters furniture
behind the main store space. Tompson said she began uphol-
stering furniture out of necessity afer her grandson drew on
her leather sofa with a marker.
“I tried a lot of things and spent a lot of time and money
trying to get that marker to come out and it didn’t budge,” she
said. “One day I was looking at the mark and thought ‘If I can
put that cording on a purse, why can’t I just make it a little long
and use it to re-do this couch.”
Afer that Tompson did some projects for neighbors and
friends. “It caught on pretty well then, when I was living in
north Mississippi, so I started doing it here, too,” she said. “I
like to have one or two pieces in here and one waiting to be
brought in. Tat keeps me pretty busy.”
She said having something to occupy her time and
thoughts has helped her through some rough patches in life
including a two-year battle with colon cancer that spread to
several other organs.
“Almost 12 years ago the doctors gave me no more than
three weeks to live,” she said. “But, God healed me. Tere were
some times that I was very depressed, but having something to
do helped me through that.”

Addie’s Antiques Mall is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. She can be
reached at 601-807-7633.
