Lot 172: Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe Lot 172: Texas Horn Chair attrib. Charles Puppe

Texas horn armchair with cattle hide seat covering and glass ball casters. Unsigned, attributed to Charles Puppe of San Antonio, circa 1889. 37″ H x 31″ W x 21″ D. Note: information recently furnished to us by Alan Rogers of the National Texas Longhorn Museum suggests this chair was made by Charles Puppe, based on the arrangement and placement of the horns which is similar, but not identical to the No. 6 Chair by Wenzel Friedrich (1827-1902), also of San Antonio (to whom we initially attributed this chair). Friedrich and Puppe both used glass ball casters on the feet of their horn chairs, but the placement of the four longer horns making up the bottom back of the chair, with the middle two touching, suggests it was in fact made by Puppe; it is identical to a documented chair Puppe made in 1889 for rancher Dennis Martin O’Connor, who in turn gave it to President Benjamin Harrison. Charles Puppe had a shop at 229 Commerce Street in San Antonio. He first appears in city directories as a maker of horn chairs in 1885 and is listed as late as 1891. Provenance: A.R. Dickey Estate, Knoxville, TN. Condition: Overall very good condition with expected wear. Hide covering possibly not original. [See more photos →]

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 →]
