110Lot 110: William Edmondson Sculpture, "Miss Lucy"William Edmondson Sculpture, "Miss Lucy"Lot 110: William Edmondson Sculpture, "Miss Lucy"

William Edmondson (American/Tennessee, 1874-1951), “Miss Lucy,” carved limestone sculpture depicting a standing woman, wearing a high collared dress and a carved locket, with long elaborately braided hair, holding a purse in one hand and a book, presumably The Bible, in the other. 15 1/2″ H x 4 3/4″ W x 8″ D. 28.4 lbs, Circa 1930/1935. Exhibited,Ê”Will Edmondson’s Mirkels,” the Tennessee Fine Arts Center at Cheekwood (April 12 through May 21, 1964), and listed as #6 in the catalog, published by Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Artist’s 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. Women, Biblical figures and animals were among his favored subjects, although he also produced more utilitarian items such as tombstones and birdbaths. In 1937, Edmondson became the first African American artist to have a solo show at the Museum of Modern Art, and he is regarded as one of the most important self-taught artists of the 20th century. Provenance: The estate of Janet Marsh Pruitt (Mrs. Earl Pruitt) of Pennsylvania, formerly of Nashville, Tennessee. By descent from her parents, Ross and Anna Marsh. Mrs. Marsh acquired the sculpture from a member of the Art Department – likely Professor Sidney Hirsch- while working for Peabody College in Nashville, just a few blocks from where Edmondson lived. Professor Hirsch (who frequently walked past Edmondson’s house) is credited with introducing Edmondson to well-connected arts patrons Alfred and Elizabeth Starr and Harper’s Bazaar photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe. Wolfe’s now-famous photographs of Edmondson and his yard full of limestone sculptures brought him to the attention of the New York art world and gained him the acquaintance of Alfred Barr, Jr., director of the Museum of Modern Art.Ê Unlike many Edmondson figures acquired by Nashvillians in the days before Edmondson gained international fame, “Miss Lucy” was not kept outside as garden sculpture. Mrs. Marsh told her family the limestone figure was always used inside as a doorstop (which has helped the sculpture avoid surface bleaching and erosion). According to the exhibit catalog, which quoted the Marshes, “Miss Lucy” was a good member of Edmondson’s Nashville Primitive Baptist church who had been “uplifted to heaven.” CONDITION: Overall very good condition, one minor abrasion to lower section of hair, scattered wear to base, old chip to front left corner. Small area of abrasion to one side (arm area) from former use as a doorstop. Remnants of an exhibition tag and the number 6 written in marker on underside. [See more photos →]

155Lot 155: C A Haun Earthenware Pottery Jar, Greene Co., TNC A Haun Earthenware Pottery Jar, Greene Co., TNLot 155: C A Haun Earthenware Pottery Jar, Greene Co., TN

Christopher Alexander Haun (Greene County, TN, 1821-1861) lead and copper oxide decorated earthenware jar. Ovoid form with tapered rim edge, symmetrical extruded lug handles, bulbous midsection tapering to a beaded base. Unglazed bottom. Coggled band on upper shoulder with stylized lettering “C A Haun No. 1″ and elaborate tread stamp designs at the base of the handles. 13″ H x 10 1/2” dia. Provenance: Greene Co., TN Family. Note: One of a small group of marked C. A. Haun jars known, the stylized “C. A. Haun No. 1” script on this example varies slightly from other examples. The tread stamps on the handles are very similar to the tread stamp pattern on a C. A. Haun marked earthenware ring bottle sold by this auction house in July 2014. Historical Note: Christopher Alexander Haun was a Union sympathizer during the Civil War and participated in burning a Confederate railroad bridge (Lick Creek) in Greene County, TN. This important event in East Tennessee’s Civil War history was initiated with a campaign by Union loyalists to burn 9 bridges. It was led by William B. Carter and strongly supported and encouraged by President Abraham Lincoln. Several potters from the Pottertown, TN area were among the men who conspired and succeeded in burning the bridge. The potters decided not to capture or kill the Confederate bridge guards but allowed them to go free based upon their solemn promises to not reveal their identities. Union troops did not materialize as promised, and the Confederates were able to pursue and capture some of the perpetrators. The Confederate guards, who were allowed to live, were the very ones who served as witnesses to implicate the five men who were hung, four of them potters. Among those sentenced to hang was the potter Christopher Alexander Haun. In his last hours, Haun wrote to his wife and said “have Bohanan, Hinshaw or Low to finish off that ware and do the best you can with it for your support”. On December 11th, 1861, Haun was hung from the gallows in Knoxville, TN. CONDITION: Old chip near base (1 3/4″ width) with some smaller scattered chips in proximity to larger chip, old stain residue to midsection of vessel, interior with chips and glaze flaking.

LEWIS, 12TH TENNESSEE CAVALRY BATTALION IN A RARE POLK CORPS CONFIGURATION: This essay will cover the known details of a small Bible or personal flag formerly owned by Pvt. S. Duff J. Lewis, later of the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion. As will be shown, some speculation, backed by evidence of location of Pvt. Lewis at a specific time frame, will be necessary as the record is not clear as to when exactly this flag was issued to or made for him. The flag itself is of a unique pattern and this will also be covered in this essay along with the unit history of the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion and Lewis' war record as shown in the Compiled Service Records file from the National Archives. Pvt. S. Duff J. Lewis. According to information supplied to me by Case Antiques, Lewis came from a family where his father was a Methodist minister. Based on the unit he would join as to where it was formed and would fight in the Civil War, Lewis was from East Tennessee. While he is listed in the Compiled Service Records of the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion (as Duff Lewis), he apparently did not join that unit with the rank of private until later in the war, possibly as late as February 1864. Prior to his joining that unit, Lewis was working for the Confederate Quartermaster Corps as a clerk in the military post office in the Department of East Tennessee which was under the command of General George Crittenden in September 1861. He apparently worked for Tennessee State Quartermaster officer Major Samuel T. Bicknell, who had been appointed as quartermaster in Knoxville, Tennessee by state governor Isham Harris. Bicknell would later apply to be a quartermaster in the Confederate Army with the endorsements of Confederate Senator Gustavus Henry and Confederate Postmaster General John Reagan. The forces of George Crittenden, under the tactical command of General Felix Zollicoffer, were defeated badly at the Battle of Mill Springs, Kentucky in mid-January 1862. Zollicoffer was killed in action and the army routed. Falling back into East Tennessee, many of the troops were then transferred to Corinth, Mississippi where a new Confederate army was being formed.Lewis in the Collapse of the Confederate Line in Tennessee and Counter Offensive at Shiloh. By March 1862, five different Confederate armies were defending the large Department Number Two, which ran from the Appalachian Mountains westward across the Mississippi River into Arkansas and Missouri. West of the river was the Army of the West under Generals Earl Van Dorn and Sterling Price (formerly of the Missouri State Guard). East of the river was General Leonidas Polk's Grand Division, holding from Memphis, Tennessee northward to Columbus, Kentucky, a huge fortress on the bluffs above the river. At Forts Henry and Donelson on the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers near Middle Tennessee was the large garrison under General John B. Floyd, while to the northeast in Bowling Green, Kentucky, the Army of Central Kentucky defended the railroad to Nashville. This army was commanded by General William J. Hardee while department command General Albert Sidney Johnston was also present. Arriving in January 1862 from Virginia, was General P.G.T. Beauregard who assumed command over Polk as assistant department commander to Johnston. Lastly, split between Mobile, Alabama and Pensacola, Florida was the Army of Mobile and Pensacola under General Braxton Bragg.With the capture of Forts Henry and Donelson by mid-February, 1862, the vast majority of its garrison and the subsequent loss of the Tennessee state capital of Nashville only a few days later, the entire defense line of the Confederates collapsed. It was to reform along the Tennessee/Alabama/Mississippi border with the new base at Corinth, Mississippi becoming the rendezvous point. This town became a focal point thanks to the two railroads that joined there (including the most important track in the Confederacy, the Memphis & Charleston Railroad) and its closeness to the Tennessee River. This allowed the basing of a vast amount of supplies. Polk's Grand Division, the Army of Central Kentucky and Bragg's forces were ordered to meet at Corinth along with the Army of the West (although they would not arrive until after the Battle of Shiloh fought in early April) for the coming Confederate counter-offensive. A brigade was sent from New Orleans (Department Number One) as additional reinforcements as well as the remnants of Crittenden's and Zollicoffer's commands from East Tennessee, now under General (and former U.S. Vice President) John C. Breckinridge. On March 29, 1862, general orders were issued from General Johnston to form the new Army of the Mississippi, as their mission was the defense of the Mississippi River Valley. Polk's command became the First Corps (two divisions of two brigades each); Bragg's the Second Corps (two divisions of three brigades each), Hardee's the Third Corps (three large brigades) and Breckinridge's the Reserve Corps (three brigades).At some point in early 1862, Lewis transferred to the command of Major David Sullins (also listed as Sullens). Sullins, a Kentuckian, and former chaplain of the 19th Tennessee Infantry (an East Tennessee raised regiment), became a brigade quartermaster on January 7, 1862 in the division of General Crittenden, specifically the Second Brigade. With the transfer of those troops to Corinth after the Mill Springs disaster, Sullins and Lewis went along. This is based on two invoices in Lewis' file signed by Sullins as well as documents in Sullins' file. Sullins was then appointed as Brigade Quartermaster for Colonel W.S. Statham's Third Brigade (later Fourth Brigade) of the Reserve Corps, whose troops had fought at Mill Springs and whose brigade was created out of the two brigades from that battle (less a couple regiments who remained in East Tennessee). Indeed, one invoice, dated May 15, 1862, states that Lewis was being paid for, "one month's service as clerk in Brigade Quartermaster's Department from 31st March 1862 to 30th April, 1862". A second invoice for pay from April 30 to June 15, 1862 also covers Lewis' time serving with Sullins. Both are during the time frame of the Third and evolution into the Fourth Brigade, Reserve Corps which came later in April 1862. Invoices for both brigades can also be found in Sullins' file. These notations on the early history of the Army of the Mississippi and the cited invoice are important as it places Lewis in the right place and time to have enabled him to receive the flag in question for the Battle of Shiloh which was fought on April 6-7, 1862 in West Tennessee. Initially a Confederate victory, Union reinforcements arrived during the night of April 6th and on the next day launched a counter-attack that slowly drove the Confederates from the field. General Albert Sidney Johnston was killed in action and command of the army fell upon the shoulders of General Beauregard who ordered a retreat back to Corinth. Sullins resigned as a quartermaster in October 1862 but a month later he noted, "Capt. J.F.J. Lewis has been with me as my Assist. in the Q.M. Dept., since Jan. inst.," and goes on to recommend him as a quartermaster in the Confederate Army. While he gets his first name incorrect, he also, for some reason, lists Lewis as a captain. Nothing in Lewis' file bears out this promotion.Lewis did remain with the Quartermaster Department into 1863, where in January he was posted to the depot in Tullahoma, Tennessee, southwest of Murfreesboro. He remained there until the Confederate Army of Tennessee had been forced out of the Middle Tennessee region by a Union army under General William S. Rosecrans in the Tullahoma Campaign of June/early July, which led directly to the capture of Chattanooga in early September. Such supplies as could be saved from Tullahoma were loaded onto trains and sent to Georgia, primarily Dalton and as far south as Kingston, as the Battle of Chickamauga raged in mid-September. The victorious Confederates pursued Rosecrans back to Chattanooga but could never capture the city although they laid siege to it. That was broken in late November with massive Union reinforcements the Confederates falling back to Dalton, Georgia for the winter. In February 1864, Lewis began working at the depot in Kingston, Georgia and remained there into June, before the Union armies of General William T. Sherman forced that depot to be evacuated towards Atlanta. Here he worked for Captain A.L. Hamilton, another former chaplain turned quartermaster who, like Sullins, also worked for General George Crittenden in East Tennessee. One payroll invoice in Lewis' file mentions his Kingston service. One last notation states that Lewis was working for Hamilton as late as July 22, 1864, as the battles swirled around Atlanta itself at this time. While nowhere in the Lewis' Compiled Service Record states a date, it was probably in mid-1864 when he joined the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion, and may have been on detached service from them remaining in the quartermaster department or perhaps serving in the field with that command. The record is not clear at all on this.After the war, Lewis married Helen Arthur of Kentucky and lived in Knoxville, Tennessee. His daughter, Eliza, married William K. McClure in 1889. In April 1938, she wrote (as Mrs. W.K. McClure) to the U.S. War Department asking for information about her father's war record and she received a response that features both typed and hand written paragraphs. This letter is also in Lewis' file.12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion. A detailed history of this unit is not needed but since Lewis' file is with them, some history might be helpful. This battalion was formed on September 1, 1862 from several companies of partisan rangers that had been raised in East Tennessee pursuant to the Partisan Rangers Act of April 1862. These companies had been raised in Hawkins County and Greene County as well as the towns of Greenville, Morristown and Knoxville. Major T.W. Adrian was in command until his death in November 1862 whereupon Major Frank Phipps and soon after Major George Day (later Lt. Colonel).Their first action was in the Kentucky Campaign of August-October, 1862 where they fought in the cavalry brigade of Joseph Wheeler. After the campaign's conclusion, they were transferred to the brigade of Colonel John Scott, Department of East Tennessee. In mid-June 1863, the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion was consolidated with the 16th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion to become Rucker's Legion, led by Col. Edmund Rucker. The new command fought in the Chickamauga Campaign of September as part of Wheeler's cavalry corps before being sent back to East Tennessee where they would fight during the miserable winter of 1863/1864.With Rucker's transfer to Mississippi, his legion was disbanded in February 1864 and both battalions reverted to their old formations. Now part of the Department of East Tennessee and Western Virginia, the 12th Tennessee Cavalry Battalion became part of General John C. Vaughn's Brigade with whom they would serve for the rest of the war fighting in the Valley of Virginia to upper East Tennessee. When the news of Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appomattox on April 9, 1865 arrived, the battalion and the rest of the Confederate troops in this department disbanded and went home. If Lewis joined this battalion after July 1864 he would have been involved with their war history as part of Vaughn's Brigade for the rest of the war. Confederate Bible or Personal Flags: To date there has not been any written essay covering the topic of Confederate Bible or personal flags. This is a shame as there are a number of them still extant and their existence can add to our knowledge of how flags can have a personal connection to home in addition to the unit battle flags presented in the early phases of the Civil War to companies and regiments as they formed.These flags were typically made by ladies from the home towns or counties from where men derived to form combat units. Some went off to war with soldiers in 1861 while others would be made during the war and sent to them by mail. Their sizes varied from three by four inches to one by two feet. Some of the larger ones were flown on tents and indeed a famous image of the Clinch Rifles, 5th Georgia Infantry, shows just such a flag being flown from the top of a tent with some troops depicted in front. The epithet "Bible flag" comes from their probable use, at least for the much smaller flags of this type, as patriotic book marks used by soldiers as they read their Bibles. Although smaller than the aforementioned personal flags, even these varied in both sizes and quality of manufacture. The vast majority of these flags I have seen are of the First National pattern. There are some of the Second National pattern and even Third National but the First National pattern dominates. The star counts also vary although no flag historian has ever created a data base of these to track that. Some stars are ornate while I have seen others that are two simple crossed stitches including one in the collections of the Tennessee State Library and Archives bearing fifteen such stars. This flag was made in Nashville. Very unique to these flags are those of a battle flag pattern as used by the Army of the Mississippi/Army of Tennessee.Battle Flags of the Army of the Mississippi/Army of Tennessee. The four components of the army that formed in Corinth, Mississippi in March 1862 brought, in two cases, unique battle flags that had been adopted earlier in 1862. Polk's Grand Division, later Polk's Corps, developed a flag based on Episcopal Church heritage and heraldry. Polk, a West Point graduate who was also an ordained Episcopal minister, was Bishop of the Southwest before the war. This flag utilized a red Cross of St. George (+) bearing thirteen white stars on a blue field. The first version lacked the white fimbration that ran between the cross and field. Forty five of these were made of bulk purchased dress silk in Memphis, Tennessee in January 1862 and sent to Polk's troops who were in upper West Tennessee as well as the area around Columbus, Kentucky. Of these only three survive today.In August 1862 a second version of this flag was made for Polk's corps, especially General Benjamin F. Cheatham's Division just prior to the start of the Kentucky Campaign. These flags, made of wool with cotton stars, were smaller, bore only eleven white stars and added white fimbration to the red cross. These battle flags remained in use into 1863. It is not known how many were made of this version and only a few survive today. The Army of Central Kentucky, stationed at Bowling Green, Kentucky received their distinctive battle flags also in January 1862. Made by a local sewing circle from a design by General Simon B. Buckner, these simple flags were also blue bearing a white circle. This circle bore the unit designation of each regiment. There was a white hoist edge. Buckner's Division brought these flags to Fort Donelson when they were transferred there in February 1862. With the rest of the army becoming known as Hardee's Corps, the name of this battle flag has come to be known as the Hardee pattern. Hardee's Corps would use these through 1863 when they were replaced by the rectangular Augusta Depot Southern Cross pattern. From 1864 until the end of the war, however, Patrick Cleburne's Division not only continued to use this pattern, but received two newer versions as the year progressed. Bragg's Corps, which came up from Mobile and Pensacola to Corinth, carried mostly First National flags and upon arrival, General Bragg was informed that his corps would henceforth carry a flag based on the Southern Cross pattern that Beauregard had been instrumental in getting adopted by the army in Virginia when he was there in the fall of 1861. This flag had diagonally crossed blue bars (X) with white fimbration bearing twelve white stars (with six pointed stars) on a red field. Three sides of the flag were bordered in yellow. The flags were roughly square. Made in New Orleans and shipped to Corinth, they became known as the Bragg Pattern battle flag. Polk's Corps had a set made as well but they did not arrive in time for use at Shiloh and equipped the corps after that battle although mostly replaced in August by the second version of the Polk Corps flag. Breckinridge's Reserve Corps (later his division) used mostly First National flags although in May 1862 would also create their own distinctive flags. As the Army of the Mississippi marched from Corinth to fight at Shiloh in early April 1862, staff officers rode the along the marching columns of troops carrying examples of the three main corps flags announcing to them the name of the corps they represented intending to familiarize the men with them to avoid friendly fire incidents. Several years ago at the Franklin, Tennessee Civil War show, one dealer had a Bible/personal flag for an Arkansas soldier of the Hardee pattern. I have never seen one prior to this nor after so far. Polk Corps Bible/Personal flag of S. Duff J. Lewis. The exciting thing about this flag is that it is the first of the Polk Corps pattern that I have ever seen in over twenty eight years of flag research. In my opinion, this adds a great deal to its collectability. Even more unique is the Latin/Christian cross on the reverse side also bears a battle honor for "Shiloh". No Bible/personal flag that I have seen or have files for bear any battle honors although a couple bear the name of the maker or something patriotic. This, too, greatly adds to its collectability. The flag is made of machine sewn silk. The red cross bears eleven embroidered white stars. On the reverse side a white silk cross is sewn to the blue field while the battle honor is also embroidered in a white silk oval. The fly end is feathered rather than solid. Overall, the flag measures 11 1/2 inches on the fly by 7 1/2 inches on the hoist. A small semi-looped attachment is sewn to the upper left corner of the flag resembling ties that would attach a battle flag to its staff. In this case it is only decorative. There is some sort of stain in one quadrant of the flag. A smaller stain looking like it came from the same source is also on another portion of the field. This would need to be seen by a conservator with experience in 19th Century flags to determine what the stain is made from. According to a letter written by an unknown family member after the war, the flag was given to, "veterans of this battle, including my great, great, great grandfather, S.D.J. Lewis, were later presented w/ceremonial battle flags. This is his flag". As has been reported already, Lewis was in Corinth during the Shiloh campaign working for the brigade quartermaster, David Sullins. Quartermasters would go with their brigades as they marched into action making sure that needed supplies were sufficient and that more could be brought forward to the battlefield as it waged. However, as mentioned, at the time of Shiloh, Mullins was quartermaster of the Third Brigade, which was Colonel Statham's of Breckinridge's Reserve Corps. This corps did not use Polk Corps battle flags at Shiloh. So how did such a flag get presented to Lewis? One can only speculate as to how this happened and there is no evidence that has been located to date that can tell us how a flag of one corps made it to a soldier of another corps. Nor do we know how many of these were made or even when they were made or presented. I can theorize that these came in the summer of 1862 at the earliest as it follows the second version of the Polk Corps flag that came out in August 1862. This report will include images of both versions of these flags so that the mentioned differences can be noted. Conclusion: While some questions remain regarding this flag, there is no doubt as to its authenticity due to its line of ownership coming from Lewis' family as proven by the letter of his great-great-great grandson. As stated before, this flag is very unique and will be quite interesting to flag collectors due to it being the only known example of a Bible/personal flag of this pattern.

Serpentine-front flamed mahogany overhanging top, having chamfered concave corners, over a conforming case with contrasting four-sided flower and intertwined vine inlay to corners; four graduated dovetailed drawers with cock-beaded edges and rectangular string inlay, brass escutcheons and round brass bail pulls. Top drawer divided into three sections. Straight skirt with central line inlay, over line-inlaid, straight bracket feet; rear feet horizontally laminated. 40" H x 47-3/8" W x 22-3/8" D at center. Circa 1800. Note: this is one of two remarkably similar chests in this auction from the same collection (but acquired separately, from different sources), both of which follow a form that originated in the British Isles but also appears in the area around Norfolk, Virginia. This chest is also accompanied by a letter written in 2015 by Christopher Lang, conservator and cabinetmaker, formerly of Colonial Williamsburg, comparing this chest with the other chest (most easily distinguished from each other by feet – inlaid on this chest, and plain on the chest referred to in the letter as "the Horne chest"). Lang attributes both chests to Norfolk, Virginia and writes "it is probable that these accomplished pieces came from the same cabinet shop." Note that microanalysis has not confirmed the woods on this chest. As a port city, Norfolk furniture makers (many of whom were British immigrants) had access to a wide variety of hard and soft woods being imported and exported through the city, and in this instance, the presence or absence of certain woods makes geographic attribution based on woods alone very difficult. This chest surfaced in a Virginia auction but no further provenance information was known. Provenance: Private Southern Collection. CONDITION: Overall general use wear, some scratching to the top. Losses to inner front edge of top drawer.ÊCouple of minor veneer repairs to bottom drawer corner, skirt and feet. Repair to rear foot. [See more photos →]

Exhibited under the title “Untitled (Tennessee Farmyard)” at the Tennessee State Museum, November 22, 1992 to February 28, 1993, “Gilbert Gaul: American Realist,” and featured in the exhibition catalog on page 16. Carved giltwood frame with linen liner. 11 1/2″ x 15 1/2″ sight, 20″ x 23 1/2″ framed. Exhibition catalog provides date attribution of circa 1891-1895. Provenance: the estate of Delle Brown, Nashville, TN. Delle Brown and her late husband Malvern Brown were, for many years, the proprietors of Trace Tavern Antiques. Biography: New Jersey born artist Gilbert Gaul studied art with Lemuel E. Wilmarth at the school of the National Academy of Design from 1872 to 1876, and privately with the noted genre painter, J. G. Brown. He continued his training at the Art Students League during 1875 and 1876. Gaul first exhibited his work at the National Academy in 1877. In 1881, he inherited a farm in Van Buren County, Tennessee, from his mother’s family, and lived there four years to fulfill terms of the bequest. In 1885, he returned to New York though he also continued to spend time at the farm in Tennessee. Gaul gained acclaim for his illustration art and portrayals of Civil War scenes. He became a regular exhibitor at the National Academy annuals between 1877 and 1902; in 1882, he was accorded the status of full academician–the youngest artist to attain the honor. He exhibited at the 1889 Paris Exposition; the 1893 World Columbian Exposition in Chicago; and the 1902 Pan-American Exposition in Buffalo, where he was awarded medals. In 1876 Gaul made his first trip to the American West, an area for which he developed a particular affinity. He made numerous western trips in subsequent years, photographing and rendering scenes of Native Americans and the frontier, which he would later work up into paintings in his studios in New York or Tennessee. In 1890, he worked for the United States census on reservations in North Dakota. He also visited Mexico, the West Indies, Panama, and Nicaragua. An account of his travels was published in Century Magazine in 1892. In 1904, he returned to Tennessee and settled in Nashville. The decreasing interest in Civil War subjects resulted in financial hardship for Gaul. He gave private art lessons, and taught at the Watkins Institute, Nashville, and at Cumberland Female College, in McMinnville. He also spent time in Charleston, South Carolina. By 1910, he had moved to Ridgefield, New Jersey, where he continued to paint and live out his remaining years. (Biography courtesy The Johnson Collection).

If you do remember me to her: She is related to me through the Mosby S.

Provenance: the estate of Martha Dodge, Hendersonville, TN; the estate of Marvin Dodge (brother to Mrs. Dodge’s late husband, Robert), Palm Beach, Florida; the estate of Clarence Mack, Palm Beach, Florida. Marvin Dodge was the caretaker/companion of noted American architect Clarence Mack, and inherited several antiques (now in this auction) from him. A 1960s era photograph of the clock sitting on the mantel of Mr. Mack’s home in Palm Beach accompanies this lot. Biography: Clarence Mack, known for designing Georgian Revival homes in Ohio’s prestigious Shaker Heights and Lakewood areas, and later in Palm Beach, was born in 1888 and grew up on Cleveland’s west side and in Lakewood. Mack’s houses were all apparently built for speculation; he is said to have bought the property, designed each house and acted as contractor, furnished the houses with antiques purchased from his European travels, and lived in many of them before selling them. His business slowed with the advent of the Stock Market crash of 1929. He spent 5 years traveling around the world before settling in Palm Beach, Florida in 1935. He continued to design and build there until his retirement in 1962, his name becoming synonymous with the “Palm Beach Regency Style.” Never married, Mack died in Palm Beach in 1982. (sources: The Lakewood Historical Society and the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, Case Western Reserve University.) CONDITION: One piece of side molding reglued. Possible early conversion to anchor escapement. Functionality has not been checked and is not guaranteed; the clock is offered “as is.” [See more photos →]

In 1907, faced with failing health, Jack Daniels gave the distillery to Motlow and another nephew. Motlow soon bought out the other nephew, but his whiskey production in Lynchburg was short lived. In 1910, Tennessee passed a statewide prohibition law, forcing the company to shift its distilling operations to Birmingham and St. Louis. Motlow challenged the law in a test case that ended up before the Tennessee Supreme Court, and he eventually became a Tennessee state senator. He continued to operated the distillery for 40 years. While some glass Motlow bottles survive, stoneware jugs bearing his imprint from the pre-Prohibition era are scarce. Provenance: the collection of Benjamin Dysart, Brentwood, Tennessee. CONDITION: Some light chipping and glaze loss to spout, scattered firing flaws to body, missing the original wire and wood handle. [See more photos →]

132Lot 132: Inlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British IslesInlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British IslesLot 132: Inlaid Chest 1 of 2, Norfolk VA or British Isles

Inlaid serpentine chest of drawers, Norfolk, Virginia or British Isles, mahogany primary with pine, birch, ash and spruce (ash and spruce confirmed by microanalysis) secondary woods. Serpentine-front flamed mahogany overhanging top, having chamfered concave corners, over a conforming case with contrasting four-sided flower and intertwined vine inlay to corners; four graduated dovetailed drawers with cock-beaded edges and rectangular string inlay, full dustboards. Top drawer divided into three sections. Straight skirt with line inlay at top, over straight plain bracket feet; rear feet horizontally laminated. Brass escutcheons, locks and round brass bail pulls. 41-1/2" H x 47-1/4" W x 22-7/8" D at center. Circa 1800. Note: this is one of two remarkably similar chests in this auction from the same collection (but acquired separately, from different sources), both of which follow a form that originated in the British Isles but also appears in the area around Norfolk, Virginia. It is accompanied by a 2004 copy of letter written by furniture conservator James L. Horne of Goodlettsville, Tennessee, attributing this chest (which was at that time owned by Nashville dealer Jim Williams) to Norfolk, Virginia. This assertion is made based on the form and construction techniques including horizontal blocking or lamination of the feet, the grain of the runners which runs parallel to the dust boards and sides of the chest, and the presence of woods including red and yellow pine (based on Horne's visual identification). However, we have not confirmed the presence of yellow pine in this chest. As a port city, Norfolk furniture makers (many of whom were British immigrants) had access to a wide variety of hard and soft woods being imported and exported through the city, and the presence or absence of certain woods makes geographic attribution based on woods alone very difficult. This chest is also accompanied by a letter written in 2015 by Christopher Lang, conservator and cabinetmaker, formerly of Colonial Williamsburg, comparing this chest with the other chest (most easily distinguinshed from each other by the plain feet on this chest – referred to in the letter as "the Horne chest" versus the inlaid feet on the second chest). Lang attributes both chests to Norfolk, Virginia and writes "it is probable that these accomplished pieces came from the same cabinet shop." This chest surfaced in a Nashville estate and was purchased by dealer Jim Williams, but no additional provenance information is known. Provenance: Private Southern collection. CONDITION: Overall very good condition with general use wear, some light stains to the top and surface scratching to front. Some small veneer patches to skirt. Chubb, English-stamped brass locks appear later than the chest. [See more photos →]

He was a pupil of an unidentified Mr. Wilson, perhaps Benjamin Wilson, when, in 1762, he won the Society's premium for a drawing of the human figure. In 1763 he won a similar prize and is recorded as traveling abroad, perhaps in France and the Low Countries. In 1766 he won the Society's second prize for a landscape drawn from nature. In 1769 he entered the Royal Academy Schools as one of its first students. In 1770 he was elected a member of the Society of Artists, where he had first exhibited in 1765, becoming a director in 1774. He assisted John Hamilton Mortimer on the decoration of the ceiling of the saloon at Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire, between 1771 and 1773, and later in the decade went on sketching tours, for example to Devonshire in 1778. Wheatley lived extravagantly and ran into debt; in 1779, with the aid of a loan from Benjamin West which he never repaid, he went to Dublin with the wife of a fellow artist, J. A. Gresse, whom he passed off as his own. In 1783 he returned to England… he was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy in 1790 and became a full Academician in 1791. (source: The National Gallery, London). Provenance: the estate of Martha Dodge, Hendersonville, TN; the estate of Marvin Dodge (brother to Mrs. Dodge's late husband, Robert), Palm Beach, Florida; the estate of Clarence Mack, Palm Beach, Florida. Marvin Dodge was the caretaker/companion of noted American architect Clarence Mack, and inherited several antiques (now in this auction) from him. Biography: Clarence Mack, known for designing Georgian Revival homes in Ohio's prestigious Shaker Heights and Lakewood areas, and later in Palm Beach, was born in 1888 and grew up on Cleveland's west side and in Lakewood. Mack's houses were all apparently built for speculation; he is said to have bought the property, designed each house and acted as contractor, furnished the houses with antiques purchased from his European travels, and lived in many of them before selling them. His business slowed with the advent of the Stock Market crash of 1929. He spent 5 years traveling around the world before settling in Palm Beach, Florida in 1935. He continued to design and build there until his retirement in 1962, his name becoming synonymous with the "Palm Beach Regency Style." Never married, Mack died in Palm Beach in 1982. (sources: The Lakewood Historical Society and the Encyclopedia of Cleveland History, Case Western Reserve University.) CONDITION: Both relined, with later frames; craquelure, especially on the painting of the subject in green coat. Subject in brown coat has approximately 1" area of retouch to forehead.

Born on October 3, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY, Stern taught himself how to take photographs as a youth. Over the course of his career, Stern changed the landscape of fashion and advertising photography by creating dynamic, stand-alone images that no longer existed simply to serve the text. He emerged alongside Richard Avedon, Mark Shaw and Irving Penn as a pioneer of this new, confrontational style." (source: Artnet). CONDITION: Excellent condition. [See more photos →]

With his photo shoot that took place in 1962 just weeks before the actressÕ death, Stern later compiled [the images] into the photobook "Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting," first published in 1982. Born on October 3, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY, Stern taught himself how to take photographs as a youth. Over the course of his career, Stern changed the landscape of fashion and advertising photography by creating dynamic, stand-alone images that no longer existed simply to serve the text. He emerged alongside Richard Avedon, Mark Shaw and Irving Penn as a pioneer of this new, confrontational style." (source: Artnet). CONDITION: Unframed, excellent condition. [See more photos →]

240Lot 240: Rutherford B. Hayes White House China Fish PlateRutherford B. Hayes White House China Fish PlateLot 240: Rutherford B. Hayes White House China Fish Plate

Haviland Limoges porcelain fish plate from the Rutherford B. Hayes service, designed by artist Theodore R. Davis for the White House, depicting a fish carried onto a beach by the surf, with cresting waves in the background, signed lower right “D”. The back contains the full artist signature with TD cypher and pennant mark, presidential eagle vignette, and Haviland Limoges mark. (Mark illustrated in the book Official White House China, 1789-the Present by Margaret Brown Klapthor, p. 107), 8 1/4″ dia. Provenance: Tennessee estate of a former New Jersey resident. Note: The Hayes Service is considered one of the most important, imaginative, and extravagant porcelain services ever produced. Negotiations for the new state dinner service for the White House began in 1879, as it was customary to order new porcelain when a new president took office. Haviland was awarded the contract over Minton and Wedgwood. During a chance meeting with Mrs. Hayes in the White House conservatory, Theodore R. Davis, an artist for Harper’s Weekly, suggested the service be designed with exclusively American flora and fauna, with each piece having a different decoration. Mrs. Hayes liked the idea so much that she asked that Davis assume direction of the designs. From his drawings, etchings were produced for transfer of the outlines to many new dish shapes; basic coloring was applied by chromolithographic and decalcomania processes and then shaded by decorators. It debuted to mixed reviews from art and design critics, but the service was wildly popular with the public. As a result, some of the Hayes designs and forms were patented and reproduced for public sale as well, but on these the pennant mark dated 1879, unique to the White House service, was replaced by a blue 1880 patent mark. (Source: whitehousehistory.org, “Official White House China 1789-the Present” by Margaret Brown Klapthor). Klapthor quotes Davis that many pieces admired by Hayes’ successor, President Chester Arthur, were removed from the White House during the summer months and taken to decorate the dining room of his vacation home. She also notes that “it is possible that the sample china which came into this country to the stores in Washington, New York and Boston during the summer of 1880 had the same mark as the set delivered to the White House, for the patent on the designs was not secured until August”. CONDITION: 1/4″ edge chip to underside of rim at bottom, 3/8″ shallow flake at top rim with attempt at repaint; a couple of other miniscule flea bites to rim, and 3 small edge chips with overpainting.

Manner of Sir Peter Lely (Pieter Van der Faes, German/English, 1618-1680) oil on canvas portrait painting titled "Madonna and Child" depicting a golden-haired and partially-draped infant with halo above his head, seated on a cushion in the lap of a dark haired woman with rose colored silk gown having ornate beaded trim, blue mantle, and partial head covering. Both figures have serene expressions. Housed in a later giltwood and composition frame with placard reading "Madonna and Child / Pieter Van Der Faes, Sir Peter Lely 1616-1680". Remnant of French newspaper en verso of stretcher. Sight – 25" H x 20 1/4" W. Framed – 32 1/2" H x 28" W. Provenance: Discovered in a Clarksville, TN estate. Biography: Born in Germany to Dutch parents, by 1637 [the artist] was known as Pieter Lely at the Guild of Saint Luke in Haarlem, where he trained. Ten years later he was in London, where he painted landscapes, religious scenes, and history pictures but quickly recognized the strength of the market in portraiture. He incorporated van Dyck's sense of scale, shimmering handling of paint, and repertoire of design and accessories with his own impeccable drawing and Dutch qualities of rich color, dramatic lighting, and romantic landscape. In 1661 Lely became the Principal Painter of the restored English monarchy; he succeeded in capturing the court's sensuous languor and also assembled one of England's finest art collections. For years Lely had no serious rivals, and he was enormously influential. Demand was overwhelming, and his studio was a well-oiled machine; by 1670 he had numbered his poses. After painting the sitter's head from life, Lely's contribution ranged from completing the entire portrait to simply handing it over to assistants. (source: the J. Paul Getty Museum). CONDITION: Canvas laid down on artist board. Areas of white accretion around infant's mouth as well as top center, bottom center, and upper lefthand corner. Moderate dust on canvas surface. Moderate craquelure overall. Black light reveals scattered inpainting to dress bodice; right of Madonna's face, and infant's ear; also along top.

258Lot 258: Knoxville Register Newspaper w/Battle of Franklin, Civil War NewsKnoxville Register Newspaper w/Battle of Franklin, Civil War NewsLot 258: Knoxville Register Newspaper w/Battle of Franklin, Civil War News

The Knoxville Register newspaper, published by J.A. Sperry, Bristol, Tennessee, Sunday, December 11, 1864, containing reports of various Civil War related news including a Union account of the Battle of Franklin (Nov. 20, 1864), Lincoln's Message to the U.S. Congress on December 9; the promotion of Lieutenant John S. Mosby, along with front page notice of The Public Laws of the Confederate States of America; and other, more routine news of the day and advertisements. The report of the Battle of Franklin, located on the back page, provides an in depth description of the events, stating "The original plan was to withdraw the force of General [John] Schofield until the meeting of the enforcements, and then give battle in the vicinity of Nashville, but the over-sanguine rebels pressed us too hard, and when Schofield perceived he could not avaid [sic] a contact, he drew up a little army in line in front of Franklin…Gen. [John Bell] Hood appeared about four o'clock, P. M. at the head of his command, and, pointing towards the lines, said 'Break those lines boys, and you have finished the war in Tennessee. Break them, and there is nothing to oppose your march from Nashville to the Ohio river'…Capt. Lyman commanding an artillery brigade in the fourth corps, had placed his batteries in most favorable positions, and from these storms of shot and shell were hurled into the charging rebel ranks. With the most reckless bravery still the rebels rushed on, and when within a few hundred yards of our works our boys opened upon them a terrible fire of musketry, that it seemed as if it were impossible for anything to live before it…At least five thousand rebels were killed, wounded or captured, while our loss will probably reach fifteen hundred. We have taken from the enemy their flags, some regiments, among them the Seventeenth Ohio, taking half a dozen each. Gen. Schofield directed the battle from the fort on the north bank of the stream, where some heavy guns and the batteries of, the twenty-third corps were placed, and which did great service in damaging the enemy's right wing". Also included, on the front page, is a proclamation from the headquarters of the War Department of West Virginia and East Tennessee of November 7, stating that "all inhabitants of East Tennessee who are serving in the armies of the United States, and who before the 1st of January 1865 shall leave said service, with the purpose of leading a peaceful and orderly life, shall receive the protection of the Confederate authorities, and shall not be taken for military service, nor as hostages for those who may be seized by the United States authorities, unless they shall thereafter be guilty of acts of hostility to the Confederate Government". 16 3/4" H x 11 3/4" W. Note: The Knoxville Register was founded in 1816 by Frederick Heiskell and Hugh Brown. It was East Tennessee's main newspaper until 1863. By that time, it was headed by Jacob Austin Sperry (1823-1896), a pro-secessionist who was forced to flee advancing Union forces as the Civil War progressed. Sperry was able to publish the Register sporadically from Atlanta and later, Bristol. This is likely the last edition of the paper published before he was ultimately captured by Union forces later that same month (making the proclamation of sanctuary for Union deserters on the front page all the more ironic). Provenance: descended in the Henry Bowers family (see related archive lot 259). CONDITION: Center fold line with toning and small losses, small edge tears up to 1/2", some fading and toning, edge folds, faint pencil inscription at top. [See more photos →]

Cornwall produced over 1,000 illustrations for Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, Redbook and Good Housekeeping. He also illustrated books written by Pearl S. Buck, Ernest Hemingway, and Somerset Maugham, and did advertisements for GM, Coca-Cola, Goodyear and several other major companies. Starting around 1927, however, he devoted himself to murals, after studying for three years with Frank Brangwyn. Brangwyn selected Cornwall to help him with a series of murals, including one at the House of Lords in England. Cornwall was also hired to create murals at the Los Angeles Public Library, the Eastern Airlines Building in New York (now Rockefeller Plaza) and at the 1939 World's Fair for GM. Cornwall's mural for the Davidson County Courthouse in Nashville featured heroic figures representing Industry, Agriculture, Commerce, and Statesmanship superimposed over maps of Nashville and Davidson County. Three years later, in 1941, he also painted a mural for The Sevier State Office Building, titled The Discovery of Tennessee and The Development of Tennessee, depicting important figures in Tennessee's history. Both Nashville murals were created under President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal cultural programs. Cornwall taught and lectured at the Art Students League in New York and served as president of the Society of Illustrators, a group from which he received a gold medal; he was also inducted into their Hall of of Fame. He also won a medal for mural painting from the Architectural League of New York. He was elected into the National Academy of Design and served as the President of the National Society of Mural Painters.

Biography: Clarence Mack, known for designing Georgian Revival homes in Ohio's prestigious Shaker Heights and Lakewood areas, and later in Palm Beach, was born in 1888 and grew up on Cleveland's west side and in Lakewood. Mack's houses were all apparently built for speculation; he is said to have bought the property, designed each house and acted as contractor, furnished the houses with antiques purchased from his European travels, and lived in many of them before selling them. His business slowed with the advent of the Stock Market crash of 1929. He spent 5 years traveling around the world before settling in Palm Beach, Florida in 1935. He continued to design and build there until his retirement in 1962, his name becoming synonymous with the "Palm Beach Regency Style." Never married, Mack died in Palm Beach in 1982.

With his photo shoot that took place in 1962 just weeks before the actressÕ death, Stern later compiled [the images] into the photobook "Marilyn Monroe: The Complete Last Sitting," first published in 1982. Born on October 3, 1929 in Brooklyn, NY, Stern taught himself how to take photographs as a youth. Over the course of his career, Stern changed the landscape of fashion and advertising photography by creating dynamic, stand-alone images that no longer existed simply to serve the text. He emerged alongside Richard Avedon, Mark Shaw and Irving Penn as a pioneer of this new, confrontational style." (source: Artnet). CONDITION: Unframed, excellent condition. [See more photos →]

After the Battle of Shiloh, four companies were transferred to the 4th (Russell's) Alabama Cavalry Regiment and thereafter it was called 18th or 26th Battalion, Balch's Battalion, and McDonald's Battalion. It fought at Fort Donelson and Shiloh, and during April, 1862, contained 463 effectives. The unit was attached to Forrest's, F.C. Armstrong's, and E.W. Rucker's Brigade, and served in the Army of Tennessee and the Department of Alabama, Mississippi, and East Louisiana. It confronted the Federals in Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Alabama, and surrendered in May, 1865. The field officers were Colonels Nathan B. Forrest and David C. Kelley; Lieutenant Colonels P.T. Allin, Robert M. Balch, and Edward E. Porter; and Majors James C. Blanton, William H. Forrest, Charles McDonald, and Edwin A. Spotswood.
