William Edmondson (American/Tennessee,1874-1951) carved limestone sculpture of a squirrel, sitting on its haunches and eating a nut, atop an integral carved base.

Provenance: The collection of Robert and Deborah Street of Nashville, a gift from the artist to the late Mrs. Claude P. Street. Edmondson’s sister, Sarah, worked for the Streets, and the artist was a frequent visitor to their home. He gave this sculpture as a gift to Mrs. Street for her garden, where it remained for many years. Street family members exhibited a photograph of Sarah Edmondson in the same exhibit (see exhibit catalog, p. 92, no. 112).

Biography: William Edmondson was born in Davidson County, Tennessee, the son of freed slaves, and worked most of his life as a railroad employee and janitor. A spiritual experience at the age of 57 prompted him to begin sculpting limestone using a railroad spike as chisel, and he claimed divine inspiration for the works produced during his 17 year art career. Biblical figures, women, and animals were frequent subjects, although he also produced more utilitarian items such as tombstones and birdbaths. In 1937, Edmondson became the first African American to receive a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art. He is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century. Condition: Surface weathering, small chips and roughness consistent with the medium and as made. [See more photos →]

49 Lot 49: Andrew Jackson Presidential Silver Spoon Andrew Jackson Presidential Silver Spoon Lot 49: Andrew Jackson Presidential Silver Spoon

A silver-gilt dessert spoon purchased by President Andrew Jackson for use in the White House from the Baron de Tuyll service, made by Pierre-Joseph Dehanne of Paris (born 1751, master 1785, active 1806-circa 1820). Oval threaded handle, monogrammed on front "President's House" and engraved with the image of a Federal eagle on reverse, also marked for French First Standard silver and bearing the mark of Dehanne. Circa 1809-1819. 7-1/4"L, 1.67 oz troy. Note: This spoon is part of one of the most storied and well-used silver services used in the White House (known as the "President's House" in the early 19th century). During the 19th century, tableware and other household objects used in the White House were periodically sold off to make way for new furnishings, or sometimes given to supporters after a President left office. According to former White House curator Betty C. Monkman, in December 1833, halfway through President Andrew Jackson's first term, old furniture, glassware, silver and china from the White House were sold at auctions in Washington, DC and Philadelphia. Jackson used the entire proceeds – $4,300 – on a single purchase: a 130 piece collection of fine French silver. The silver, consisting of dinner and dessert services, came from the estate of the Russian Minister to the United States, known as Baron de Tuyll, who had died in 1826. Most of the pieces from the so-called Baron de Tuyll service had been made between 1809 and 1819 by some of the most prominent French silversmiths of the Napoleonic period, including Dehanne and Martin-Guillaume Biennais (who was appointed silversmith to Napoleon and Josephine around 1805). This spoon is part of the set of "dessert flatware of gilded silver" made by Dehanne. An inventory of the President's House was taken the day before Jackson left office, on March 3, 1837, but it has not been located; much of the original Baron de Tuyll silver service remains at the White House, where pieces were used well into the 20th century. (ref. THE WHITE HOUSE: ITS HISTORIC FURNISHINGS AND FIRST FAMILIES by Betty C. Monkman, p. 86-87, 92). Additional photos of marks are available on request. Provenance: Private Arkansas Collection, acquired several decades ago in the St. Louis area. Condition: Overall wear to gilding and wear with some loss of definition to eagle monogram and back of bowl; a few shallow small dents to bowl. [See more photos →]

472 Lot 472: Newcomb College Teapot Newcomb College Teapot Lot 472: Newcomb College Teapot

Newcomb College Pottery teapot, scenic landscape design, carved to depict trees draped in Spanish moss with blue and green matte glaze. Impressed marks to base: registration mark RY (made 1929), shape number 191, potted by Jonathan Browne Hunt (1876-1943, at Newcomb 1927-1933) and decorated by Anna Francis Simpson. 5" H x 5" diameter x 8" length (including spout). According to the book Newcomb Pottery by Jessie Poesch, Miss Simpson received her diploma of art from Newcomb College in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1906. She registered as a Graduate Art student for 1906-1908 and joined the ranks of Art Craftsmen from 1908-1923 and 1924-1929. She died in 1930. The book goes on to state that "Miss Simpson exhibited an individuality in her pottery and embroidery that made her a master of her crafts… in 1929, Miss Simpson won a silver medal for the best pottery at the Ninth Annual Exhibition of the Southern States Art League held in San Antonio, for an Espanol design." Note that this teapot differs from other known Newcomb College teapots in that the design is scenic, not floral, and has a lid with a broad, wide knob as opposed to a small finial. However, the lid's glaze and buff body match that of the pot. Provenance: Inherited by consignor from Rosa Rainold Graner, 1904 – 1962, who graduated from Newcomb School of Art in 1926, specialist in ceramic sculpture, awarded the title of Master Craftsman (work was done under her married name, Rai Graner Murray). Condition: Firing flaw to interior rim; 1/16" flake to tip of spout. Hairlines to interior around spout which do not extend to exterior and do not fluoresce under blacklight. [See more photos →]

Davis" (note the presence of a period after Jeff). According to the donor letter that accompanies the nameplate, "When Richmond was captured, and the Federal forces were taking possession, Sec. Chase, paymaster of the Confederacy, being unable to remove the heavy chest of silver and desirous of saving all he could, broke open the chest, taking off this plate from the top of the chest, and took out as much as he could of the contents." The nameplate and other objects were brought for safe keeping to Richmond; it is not known if this dipper might have been among them or if it has any connection to the former President of the Confederate States of America.

He served in the Army in 1944 and went on to study art briefly at the Mienzinger Art School in Detroit. He returned to Nashville to practice commercial art, but by the mid-1950s had decided to pursue his own art career. Whimsical animals and fantastical, often grotesque creatures were a recurring theme of his work. Wildner met with critical and commercial success after a 1962 exhibit of his art at the Nashville site now known as Cheekwood. However, the death of his parents and collapse of his marriage in the 1970’s led him to become reclusive in the last two decades of his life. Provenance: Private Florida collection.
