Satisfied consignors go to Stuart Holman again
A quality group of paintings did well. An 18 by 15in oil on canvas of a Venice canal scene by French artist Edmond L. DuPain, with excellent color and execution, topped the painting offering at $2,860. A farm scene by C. H. Davis, oil on board, 12 by 16in, went to a phone bidder for $1,210. Lover's Lane, by Louisville artist Maxwell Foster, oil on canvas, 6 by 13in, strolled away for $660. And a landscape by Edwin Burrit, oil on board, 10 by 15in, achieved $550, also over the phone.
A tiger oak bi-level china on paw feet with mirrored back sold for $1,595. Three other china cabinets landed between $990 and $1,100. A five-stack barrister's bookcase, unusual at 26in wide, raised long-distance interest and a final bid of $1,120. A set of eight ebonized dining chairs was very strong at $1,496. An Eastlake marble top sideboard with carved top reached $1,100. Holman hammered a unique pair of wrought-iron glass-topped cathedral offertories at $770.
Bidding was lively all day on the nice collection of clocks that came from the home. Topping the group was an Ansonia ring gold, $880. There were three Royal Bonn porcelain clocks, two with open escapement brought $825 a piece, and a smaller cobalt flow blue example wound up at $550. A Waterbury Halifax wall clock sold for $605.
A large slag glass table lamp went for $935. This oversized example featured a fretwork landscape over six glass panels of mottled blue water and caramel sky. $605 was bid for a hand-painted Gone With the Wind lamp. A Loetz Victorian hanging light fixture with elegant oval globe of purple and blue iridescent glass and filigree work, found in the attic and probably original to the home, reached $575.
